Yea, it actually feels out of place that we're getting some plot lol. But finally here! Purebloods are the vampires right? The ones that Eva is is copied from?

The swiss army knife of powers honestly felt more out of place than the plot to me haha. Feels like we skipped a chapter somewhere, did we ever hear about this power up? I didn't miss the training arc right?

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.”

...I have to give it to Akamatsu for jumping 3 months into the future JUST so that he could get that one last flashback into the bag immediately after.

 

Haha... "last".

 

I'm glad they showed us most of the pactio powers. I kind of completely forgot about Santa's thing with computers... Wait, did he have anything to do with computers...? All I remember was him looking up UQ Holder's database to get Carin's measurements. Anyways, it's a shame we didn't get to see Kirie or Carin's pactios after all the trouble they went to get them. I guess they must be the "better to show it directly" kind.

 

Or maybe the guy just hasn't thought of them yet.

This. I was wondering when they met and then boom, flashback.

Hmm... I actually didn't mind this month's flashback at all! Color me surprised. I think it's because I like how it keeps adding to the mythology of just how badass this sword saint dude really is.

 

Also because it was short.

 

Speaking of which, it's been a while since I was actually invested in a fight in this series. Partly because Jinbei has a very creative fighting style, and also because it's a good chance for everyone to start showing off their new pactios. While naked. I'm looking forward to next chapter.

 

...also Karin is still wearing socks from last chapter. I wonder how long that's going to last.

...I guess this is the part of the story where Akamatsu watched Avengers for the first time... Don't get me wrong, it was kind of hilarious, but I'm sad that everyone had to completely forget about their new pactios in order to facilitate this one chapter. I suppose we won't know for sure until next month.

 

In the meantime, let me check why I'm still somehow paying for a Premium crunchyroll subscription without noticing...

Is it just me or did UQ Holder finally hit it's stride? I feel like these last two chapters are the first ones I've enjoyed in a long time.

Well, let's see... no flashbacks... no Negima references or characters... if the last fight hadn't just been a "who has the higher power-level" contest, it might have been perfect.

 

Although, I'm happy sword dude joined the team. UQ Holder is at its best when Akamatsu finds creative ways to undermine what were supposed to be broken immortals. Juzo is kind of cheating in that respect, but it's still really funny.

The thing is I've got this feeling that especially because it's coming up now and we're getting essentially a recap episode on it that there's going to be something that happens in the future, or now, that makes Eva slowly or quickly get over it. So everything goes back to the usual harem antics plus one, as is often the case. Mark my words Eva's going to be at least pushed, successfully or not, into trying to reconcile it being totally ok to try to go after your adopted son.

 

 

...welp.

I mean, what can I say? I didn't expect this to happen after we had just gotten a flashback chapter of Evangeline and Negi having a route of their own though, so KA's not entirely predictable (even if it kind of takes away from this a lot).

I'm not sure what to think of UQ Holder trying to acknowledge the current pandemic. I mean... yes, Akamatsu. Thanks for reminding me, but I'm reading manga specifically to forget about my impromptu quarantine cooking lessons, thank you very much.

 

The chapter itself was great, actually. Which is weird, because last month was god-awful. I mean, in general, March was just god-awful all around, but the UQ Holder chapter was specially terrible. I had very low expectations, but this month things kind of went from stupid to stupid awesome in no time flat. I don't like how we got there, but I'm glad we're here.

 

The only thing that pisses me off is that, although this could go in a number of ways, you can bet your ass it will have NOTHING to do with anyone's pactios. I'm sorry, but that was just something that happened once and will never come up again. Like Giorno's damage reflection powers in Jojo part 5.
