All this plot advancement is terrific, but the perpetual cliffhangers do put a damper on conversation!

If you ask me, it's less the cliffhangers and more the fortnightly pacing of the main story that dampers the conversation.

 

Since we've caught up, I won't bother with spoiler tags

 

I'm sure I mentioned this earlier in this thread, but currently I'm of the mind that the Saboteur wrecked the communication equipment out of benevolence.

 

I feel like the Saboteur is either someone who (1) was aware s/he'll be targeted for assassination at some point, or (2) was an accomplice in the plot who was promised mercy from his fate but was ultimately betrayed.

Whatever the case, getting stranded in space wasn't something they had wanted, and instead decides to join the crew in the voyage back home. However, s/he decided to prevent the crew from communicating back to Earth and sending an SOS.

 

Because if their assailants know Group B5 is still alive, they'll hatch another plan to kill them.

That's how I'm feeling about this.

 

Though at this point, one has to wonder whether the Sphere was supposed to be on McPa or not.

No updates since Dec 15th, which might be expected for the holidays...  They've also removed the "updates tuesdays and thursdays" note from the page, though, which they never did before, not even when it wasn't updating Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Is the official English one kaput, paywalled, or other?

@gamria Thank you very much for sharing the Astra chapters. I just get this from viz when I try to read Astra: "ごめんなさい! CONTENT NOT AVAILABLE Unfortunately this content is not available in your location.". I was sure that I would never be able to read the Astra Lost in Space until I find this thread. From now on I will follow this thread for the chapters, summaries and opinions.

 

*Ah, oh yes, I just made this account to thank you kkk.

Note that I feel the translator can exaggerate at times. In this instance, I would keep "kakkoii" as "cool" rather than "hot"

You'll see what I mean

According to the translator, because the English scans are close to catching up, Viz aren't getting the Japanese raws from Shueisha as routinely as before, so release schedules could be irregular from now on

I've given up guessing about a lot of things :lol: I still think some of them must be clones, but obviously not as many as I originally thought.  They've all got very different reasons to be aboard.

 

Growing up in fairyland explains why Charce talks like a fairy godmother.  It doesn't explain his obsession with dissecting aliens, but, such intense curiosity must have helped push him to leave.  No big stretch that the royalty would want him gone, what happens in fairyland is supposed to stay in fairyland.

 

So we finally have good explanations, or at least hints, for most of them except Aries.  The only odd thing about her is her photographic memory.  I bet that's why they want her gone - the way she outed Charce was a hint.  She saw something before her transfer, something that didn't seem important but will become so, and she'll never forget it.

 

The only real candidates left for the "saboteur" are Funi and Zack.  I don't think it could be Funi.  She's not very capable, and wears a truth puppet.  So it's Zack or nobody.

@monty

 

Charce is more like an obsession with dissecting in general. And he's a noble, not royalty.

And while I don't think he's lying, I feel he's still hiding something. Therefore, he's still a suspect for me.

 

Also, something else that unnerves me: the translator chose to translate セイラ as "Sayla", and while this is perfectly valid, if you write down its Romaji, it reads as "Seira". 

The complete reverse of "Aries". There could very well be a connection between the two, as cliche as that may be.
 
But yeah, assuming the Clone Theory is valid, perhaps Charce isn't a clone himself.
Well, at any rate, the story gets crazy again with the 4th Planet.
