UQ Holder Chapter 31 SPOILER Images

Here is the first SPOILER image from the upcoming UQ Holder chapter 31, courtesy of the VERY gracious Southrop. (My review of UQ Holder Chapter 31 should come out Wednesday.)


The UQ Holder chapter 31 goodness begins.^_^

UQ Holder Chapter 31

Those of you wanting a new character, rejoice. Akamatsu-sensei delivers SAKURAME Kirie. ^_^

UQ Holder Chapter 31

Not only that, but the Fate-looking Vasago is back to bicker with everyone’s favorite smeg for brains. ^_~

UQ Holder Chapter 31

The old save point girl.  I’d guess that Kirie routinely has to create a save point, but does so again during times where one would be going into a dangerous situation.  Of course, those of us who play games know all too well how easy it is to get caught up in the moment and forget to save a game. ^_^;

I wonder how this whole save point thing works with Kirie though. If she is slain, does she re-appear at her save point?  If so, does she retain the knowledge of what has happened, thus allowing for infinite mulligans? (Or, in Akamatsu-sensei’s case, a means of exploring what might have been, as he did briefly in Negima when he had Negi and company sent a week into the future so they could see how the world had changed if they didn’t stop their opponent).

Kirie also provides the financial backing for UQ Holder. So we have our ojousama character, though she could be pretty old.

I’d like to express my continued thanks to Southrop for sharing these awesome images. As usual, he has some notes for UQ Holder chapter 31 for those interested. ^_^

    I’m also curious how it works. I’m wondering if that magic circle she is preparing is just part of the saving process or it’s the actual save. As in the later implying that if someone goes and kick that even after she finished the save point would be destroyed. Making it so she would be better of making many saves and in hidden places.

    “If so, does she retain the knowledge of what has happened, thus allowing for infinite mulligans?”

    I think it’s more interesting if she doesn’t remember anything before she saved when she loads a save. How she would feel for suddenly “waking up” at her last save point, without knowing what happened since then? Maybe she had made a new friend, who she won’t remember anymore. An important event may have happened. Had anyone before used of that to deceive her in believing something that didn’t actually happen and she later discovers it’s a lie?

    It also would make an interesting case in the immortal group, that there would be memories lost everytime she “dies”. So while her life wouldn’t really be lost, people really would want to avoid letting her “die”.

    Well, if it’s not the case I would consider a pity, but not really idolizing the idea so much that I would feel cheated if it isn’t the case.

      Yeah, that would make things interesting if she does forget everything. In game terms, while the player knows what happened to kill the character, the character in the game presses forward without any of the XP or the like lost from the death.

    She´s so cute 🙂

  3. just notice in the cover picture , there is a black cat , and i think we gonna have the first UQ H mascot
    and Kirie is one person showed up in very beginning picture of UQH (with Jinbei, Gengorou, Ikkuu, Karin , Eva, Touta , Kuroumaru and 4 another mysterious members ) hope that mean she gonna be a core character ^_^

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I hadn’t even noticed the cat. ^_^; But, you may be right that this will be the mascot character.

      As to Kirie being a core character, I think that will be the case since she’s one of the Numbers.

    Finally she appears, I’ve been waiting for this!
    I’ve been itching to find out more about the Save Point style of immortality, since it’s the only unique one introduced (in terms of non-game media), and as a gamer, I find it interesting.
    And that picture of her sleeping in a sea of penguin plushies is pretty cute.

    Although now that she’s a loli who’s older than she looks, I wonder if Eva will spend even more time as “Yukihime”…

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Finally she appears, I’ve been waiting for this!

      *lol* I thought you had. ^_^

      Although now that she’s a loli who’s older than she looks, I wonder if Eva will spend even more time as “Yukihime”…

      I think that for UQ Holder, Eva will mostly be in her Yukihime form since that’s how everyone addresses her and expects her to appear. However, I think that from time to time, we’ll see Eva revert back to her normal form for whatever reasons.

    New character, yay!

    The save point girl, huh. Hopefully Akamatsu will actually explain how it works. I wonder if it’s somehow similar to Gengoro’s “multiple lives” system, since both systems are derived from games.

  6. Aki says:

    Could be similar to the pheonix reincarnation… To me it looks like a magic circle for summoning, a pile of dirt? Most likely to act as the ash to recreate the body and the stick with flame is like a soul/guide. Likely when she dies her spirit is returned to the save point and she respawns herself

  7. OverMaster says:

    Having seen the raw, it’s very jarring how the EXTREMELY IMPORTANT matter of Magia Erebea doesn’t seem to be touched at all so soon after what happened at the church, and Touta, idiot as he is, and Kuro, who has less of an excuse, don’t seem bothered or curious about one of them turned into a rampaging superpowerful monster. You know, a realistic reaction like any of us would have, right?

    Of course, I might be missing something in the untranslated dialogue, but it seems any mention of that, if there’s any, must be a throwaway one.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I saw the Chinese scanlation, so I know what you are talking about, though without the Japanese, I can’t say if I see mention of ME or not. I bet it isn’t. If true, it is annoying that the subject of ME is just forgotten and swept aside ’cause why would anyone want to discuss it?

    A wild Loli appears!
