Are you sure you don't have a thing for feet Athos, I never seem to notice these things and you're always on it in a flash

“I promised, remember? I said I would save you even if it meant fighting the entire world.” “Yes…you did.”

Othinus narrowed her eye as the boy held her in his arms. She looked happy. She looked truly happy.

“But you don’t have to worry. I was already saved from the moment you said that to me.”

...haah.

 

I was looking forward to see her falling face first into the ground, alright? I don't know why, but that panel stuck with me for some reason. Also, hadn't we already established that I wasn't the only one noticing these things? And even if it was just me, wouldn't this fall more into the legwear category rather than just feet? Because that of course makes me less of a pervert, yes?

 

...

 

...

 

...I need something else to read.

...so.

 

Are we sure-- I mean. ARE WE SURE that this was the last flashback ever? Yes? Is there anything else? Anything at all?

 

 

...Right! Back to the tournament, then.

>Chachazero names UQ Holder and Eva still just ditches her

Cold. Amusingly, even with the cute Eva flashback chapter and all that, I still can't tell if Akamatsu is going to just stick with Kirie now or flip flop back to Eva again

We haven't met them no, they're probably dicking around somewhere else doing immortal things.

...while I'm actually very pissed that the tournament was called off, this chapter made me laugh out loud a couple times. It's a low bar, but I can't complain about things moving forward again.

Oh, who am I kidding? Of course we will.

Leave it to Chamo to bring pactios back. I've actually missed them a bit.

This really felt like a bit of a stretch to try and get Karin to pactio with Tota. I really doubt KA is going to have Eva never do anything of worth ever again, so its pretty odd to try and deny a pactio just because "the heavens say you are useless." Just have Eva tease Karin into doing it with Tota if you need it to happen that badly.  

 

I'm more interested in what Chamo was whispering to Kirie though, we havent seen a full contract as I recall yet. I assume it's "just" exchanging vows or rings or something, that would explain why it sounds like nothing but has implications.

Well, it's obvious that all of this was just an excuse to bring up Karin's backstory, because I mean, of course we need more flashbacks. What was I thinking. It's not like we hadn't already figured this out ages ago.

 

I did like the part where they pointed out Karin is basically the Worf of this series.

...so this is my summary of UQ Holder! after it went monthly:

 

 

 

Guh!

 

That took a while.

 

I'm glad the flashback only lasted one chapter, though now I'm conflicted. Is the series monthly now? I don't know if that would be good or bad for it in the long run, but I know it's bad for me in the immediate future because I'll need to wait longer between chapters.

 

 

 

 

...I thought... I thought they had made things very simple this time. "Come to the top of the tower, Touta! Mwahaha!". Boom. Done. Win some tournament battles while you're at it. Thank you.

 

 

 

...why are we back to flashback land?!

 

 
 

 

I'd say "Right! Now we can finally move on!", but I get the feeling that I've said something to that effect in the past, and it did not end well.

 

 

 

 

...of course they're not done. Why would they be done? It's only been like three months worth of flashbacks. Break? Why, sure! Don't we need a break. From the break.

 

 

 

 

...I like that right before we go back to the previous flashback, we've now started a completely different flashback. An important flashback, I admit, but a flashback nonetheless!

 

 
 

...

 

...so.

 

Are we sure-- I mean. ARE WE SURE that this was the last flashback ever? Yes? Is there anything else? Anything at all?

 

 

 

...Right! Back to the tournament, then.

 

 
 
By the way, said tournament was cancelled right after. Sorry, I had to do this. When I realized after reading this months' chapter that I was about to post something in the lines of "Well, finally done with that flashback. But surely that's the last one!" I felt something like dejavu kicking in and I just had to... cope.
 
...anyways. It was a fun chapter. A little more... uh... suggestive, but very similar to Chachamaru's pactio, which is not a bad thing.
 
...so who's next again?

Well, dont let it be said that there was no reason for KA to add Negi's title back into the title when it changed magazines haha.  

 

That said, I noticed something reading today's chapter, who says its Evangeline and Touta who are being rejected anyways? Karin doesnt have successful pactios with anyone else that I know of (before this chapter anyways), so why doesn't she assume that maybe its because she's literally Judas?

Hm... Eva was the one who first assumed the reason the pactio failed was because "God" doesn't like her. Karin-- I'm sorry, Carin's whole character is based on the irony that it's not a curse, but a blessing that gives her immortality, so it made perfect sense to her at that point. Even now that Touta demonstrated that there may be another explanation to this, I don't think this is quite enough for her to go from "there's something off about this" to "maybe God hates her after all".

Less that god hates her and more so that its like a nun, where you're supposed to be married to god perhaps? Or yet another idea perhaps being that you have to forgive yourself before you open up to others, or what have you. Idea being simply that if she doesnt have a working pactio with anyone at all, the common thing here is K/Carin, not the partners.

I don't really have anything to say about the most recent chapter. The hug at the pier halfway through was probably the highlight for me. I don't know why, but Kirie being sad always gets to me. At least I think it's more interesting than watching her being flustered or looking at her underwear.

 

 

 

...why WAS she wearing a skirt, even after coming out of the bath...?

I feel like KA somehow picked up on the "Imagine" meme and decided to play it halfway straight after reading that chapter. I have to wonder too, if the placement is a two way street, there's clear implications on what Kirie is thinking due to it, but what about Touta? Is he just hungry or something or does he have no idea and it gets overwritten by her.

It's kind of a shame that they showed us this swiss army knife of new and interesting superpowers at the beginning of the chapter, just to forget about them in favor of another, completely unrelated power-up for Touta instead.

 

I can't complain too hard, though. This is the first time in 10 months that I've felt the plot progress in any way.
