no he's revived... they fixed his lethal C1 injury by pouring miracle jizz on the uncracked stone skin he still had, he kept cracking his neck because I'm guessing that area of his neck was uncomfortable
I like the concept but idk It feels off to make an anime for this series. Don't get me wrong I will watch this anime. But because I read the manga (bc the story is great) I don't feel that exiting bc tbh it is not a flashy fight series. its's more of a bland shokugeki /slice of life in my opinion.
