UQ Holder Chapter 39 SPOILER Rumors (Update #1 – More info and an image!)

No spoiler images have arrived yet. In lieu of that, here are the first SPOILER rumors from the upcoming UQ Holder chapter 39 courtesy of Hata. (My review of UQ Holder chapter 39 should come out Wednesday.)

UQ HOLDER CHAPTER 39 SPOILERS

The UQ Holder chapter 39 goodness begins.^_^

From Hata:

C39
— missed chance, Sakurame plan fails.

— Fate took the name of white wings.

— swords woman name is “祝月咏”,

— confidence Tota vs Fate, Fate repeats the same moves he used against Negi.

notes: without seeing the raw I can’t tell if the name is 祝 月咏 (Iwai Tsukuyomi) or 祝月 咏 Iwaitsuki Yomi.)

as expected, C40 with the color page should be good.

Figures that Kirie’s plan would fail. Hata had pointed out that poison of any kind would be too slow to act. I wonder what happened, though I suspect that Fate was taken back in time, realized time travel was part of Kirie’s abilities, and planned accordingly, possibly time jumping himself.

As to the swordwoman, I think it is a pretty good guess to say this is Tsukuyomi from Negima.

Interesting that Fate kept the Ala Alba group name for himself. That suggests to me that Fate was never part of UQ Holder from the start, which I thought he might have been while Negi was still alive.  Of course he may have been part of UQH, but after Negi died, took on the Ala Alba name again.

Well, that’s it for now. I’m keeping my eye’s open for spoiler images from UQ Holder chapter 39. Hopefully, some show up. ^_^;

UQ Holder Chapter 39

C39 The Fight Continues

    So Ala Alba’s good name is in Fates hands.

    Well that’s excessively shitty. Like, really. Even if Fate isn’t that antagonist in the long term, that reflects so goddamned poorly on them as a group to have someone like that sitting on the top of a tower willing to let the slums burn and not lifting a finger about it in any capacity just to catch his quarry. For fucks sake, I would’ve preferred Ayaka or someone not out of touch with humanity to at least carry on that name.

    • OverMaster says:

      Cutting their series short and never giving them actual proper resolutions for their character arcs or answering most questions about them? Check.

      Never showing their greatest victory against the ultimate enemy in this universe? Check.

      Derailing them through the Sports Festival? Check.

      Killing them all (or at least the wide majority of them) off-panel afterwards? Check.

      Sending the world spiralling into disaster while most of them should still have been alive? Check.

      Giving their name to the group of a terrorist and merciless stone cold former enemy relapsed into villainy and employing a sociopath who either was another of their biggest enemies or pretty much a clone of her? Check.

      Nooooooo, Akamatsu never developed any sort of hatred fetish towards Ala Alba, why do you ask?

      • Seimei says:

        Dargor & Over-master:

        1. I want to say that I think it’s great that even though the plan Negi was successful and the magic is generally well integrated into the world that the world is not no-longer become a new Eden much and there is a lot of problems solved. Especially if you rlies dialogue between Negi and Chisame in Volume 37, most of the problems encountered era UQ already glimpsed! I made parties who are also very happy with the likely return of life-maker. I like the idea of ​​property indestructible villain who can never be permanently killed, only defeated for a while (10 years, 50 years, 100 years, 1000 years depends). I mean I think it’s the original that chenge (sigh), “the world has problems, a villain wants to destroy a hero arrives and kills the wicked Yeh peace and love reign forever.!”

        I find more boring property having a antagonnist which recurs periodically. Especially the life-maker is not the stereotype of the “big evil” that wants to destroy the world “because he loves death, souffrence and chaos.” Most of his goals are noble, but it uses the wrong method. Much less Manichean I find (well most of antagonnist neketsu have noble goals is true, the life-maker is not alone ^. ^).

        After this is only my opinion.

        2. Meanwhile, the rumor that Akamatsu Negima wanted to make a pure shonen (you can also easily imagine that protagonnist would probably more resembled Nagi (which is the case of Tota ^ ^) that Negi. But the theme of the Harem was imposed and it is only after he has hand grafted Nekketsu over. If this rumor is true, the fact that it may have a “fetish hatred” to Ala-alba (even inconcscient) heroines that he was commendatory, not that he created himself (passage through the Ala-Alba, it lacks the moitiée lla 3A, which proves property moitiée that these characters are there to complete and underutilized lol (ok, I exclude empty characters, Chao, Satomi and Ayaka but there is still a package anyway).

        When I entands people like Dargor that UQ-Holder is a bland group without development I explode seriously laugh for Alba Ala-Ala-ok but Alba is composed of 15 people at most, no 32 lol!

        So yes now he can finally do what he wants with UQ-Holder, I suspect to fulfill his little revenge (perhaps a little too sadistically is true ^ ^ but it plaits me! Hehehehe! ^ ^) to be group-feminized ^ ^. Already in Negima when you see that the Ala-Rubra is over-masculinized by exact opposition … well that’s what.

        I personally belongs to those who believe that Negima would have been even better without harem. That said do not take me for a macho, I just wanted to have a group with a roughly equal number of girls and boys and more focused on the action and the story is told. Without plans diaper every 7 chapters.

        How lucky Uq-Holder offers this! Cool!

        That’s my opinion.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        Derailing them through the Sports Festival? Check.

        In hindsight, the Sports Festival was just to kill time on a lighter note since Sensei obviously knew he’d be ending the series.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      As a plot point, or even in reality, something started for good can be changed into something for evil, or perverted to the point to where the people running it think they are doing good, but are in fact doing evil. So Fate still holding onto the Ala Alba name fits to me since the new group is UQ Holder.

      • Dargor says:

        Even if you go for “DARK AND EDGY REALISM” (something this series tries and fails to be), negating any good the previous cast while throwing the organization they were apart of into the antagonist box is a shit move. It isn’t even a matter of Grey vs. Grey morality, you have a guy sitting on top of a tower completely out of touch with humanity posturing with his holier than thou antics while running Ala Alba’s name through the mud, leaving our only hope and savior to be an elite few of super special immortals and a dimwitted moron who can do no wrong.

        Like I said, you could do something half way decent with the name, but giving it to Fate? Fuck that noise. Or, this series can put its money where its mouth is and actually try to go dark, but Akamatsu clearly doesn’t have the guts to go all the way. He doesn’t have the same excuses that would make it hard to pull off in Negima either.

        • Seimei says:

          You realize anyway that some (myself included) are at very boring otherwise the current turn of events huh?

          I mean, under the pretext that the ala-Alba were the heroes the guild can not go wrong?

          Otherwise I like the real sentence: “leaving our only hope and savior to be an elite super special Few of immortals and a dimwitted moron Have you can do no wrong.”

          Beyond the treating Tota moron that is half true), it does not come to you ais the idea that some were preferred “an elite few of super special immortals” to a harem of 32 collegians girls? Because yes! ^ ^ In addition apparently if one believes the spoils, kuromaru also has claimed Ala-Alba (in moin it is his opponents?). What I mean is that the Ala-Alba can have very real divided into several branches, it is possible that the Gulde Fate is not the only “ala-alba”. Maybe some girls of 3-A, in response have created another “ala-alba” more faithful to the ideals of Negi and supports uq-Holder?

          Admits that his would be interesting. I love when a brotherhood / guild broke out in several courents, it shows that it does not only ideology, and it complicates the situation (and do not answer that was artificial because not enough dark! I will reminded once again that we are not in a seinen but in a shonen Nekketsu). And I think Astro approve me ^ ^

          frankly was sometimes treated me of fanboy but you you’re not wrong in your genre too. It almost seems that for you the 3-A should have been elevated to the ranks of the untouchables here Gods under penalty of being burned for blasphemy! Xd .

          I also like goods “But this series can put money icts Where icts mouth is and try to go dark Actually, goal Akamatsu Clearly Does not Have the guts to go all the way.”

          Basically you deny the right of UQ-Holder to be what it is: a shonen Nekketsu. Neither more nor witness.

          In short, I laugh when I know they dare call me a fanboy immature. ^ ^

          • OverMaster says:

            You sure must laugh a lot, then.

          • Seimei says:

            Well not exactly. You is the only one Dargor consider myself a fanboy lol. Yet he did not believe false, even on the French forum where I am registered o the Akamatsu we sometimes explosive debates regarding the future scenario UQ-Holder. I’m not always in agreement with other members! But we all agree on one thing: this manga is good, it is not perfect eh? It has flaws but it is also good. Consider that this manga is bad, just because we are disappointed that the Ala-alba becomes a antagonniste organization (such Dargor) or because they do not like Tota (like you) it’s not very fair either ?

            Astro also n” not like Tota yet he said on several occasions he also like UQ-Holder. It makes him a fanboy?

            I just restore two truths:
            1. Everybody does not necessarily appreciate that the cast of Negima is composed of 80% of schoolgirls completely drooling in front of a kid of 10 years (and I am one of those so annoyed. So yes, the group immortal elite next is not worse (or much better ^ ^) for them eh?

            2. Whether you like it or not we are in a Nekketsu not in a seinen. So yes, the manga may be darker than Negima (and is the case and it’s cool ^ ^) but should not expect the hokuto no ken or Berserk huh? And is very much like that. So do not expect to see “kenshiro” or “Gutz”. The hero is also designed to corespondre gender Nekketsu points. Was as if I pleignez there are psychopaths in a horror movie or a thriller. Or there is romance in a romantic film or a shojo or completely loufoquent characters in a comedy or an animated film of Lonny-Toones.

            In two words: “is absurd.”

            What remember these simple facts would make me a fanboy? lol mind boggles!

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I’m not a fanboy. I’m just tired from long hours and lack of sleep. 😉

          • Seimei says:

            I know do not worry. I was simply responding to over-master seems parfos find inconceivable that we can enjoy UQ-Holder and as was your case, I quoted against you as example. No love UQ-Holder does not mean being a fanboy over-master san. lol ^ ^.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          While I understand your concerns, in this case, I don’t share them. As a story point, I don’t mind it at all because I can see Fate truly believing himself to be carrying on Negi’s legacy, but in the manner Fate has decided is best. As I’ve said, I’ve seen this move in fiction and in reality.

          • People keep forgetting that Fate follows the philosophy of “If you try to save everything you will end up losing everything.” And who can say for sure that he is wrong in this aspect? Negi’s plan was to save everyone and even though he succeeded with Evangeline, Fate and the others, Zazie’s sister said that his plan would lead to the path with the most bloodshed. I seriously doubt every single person in the world of Negima/Uq Holder can be saved, even the LifeMaker/MotB himself said something similar.

            Now since everyone is just talking about his bad actions, how about the girls he saved in Negima, granting them a future?

            How about the fact that he was one of the persons who helped the most with Negi’s plan?

            You can’t expect someone to be there to save and help everyone all the time, in every single place of the world that needs it. Nagi, Negi, not even them could do it.
            As for him going after Touta, and the whole hatred for Evangeline thing… I’ll need to see how exactly Negi died first. If it really was Evangeline’s fault to some degree, then Fate’s reaction can be somewhat understood, he probably wants to prevent Touta from meeting the same fate or something – what if Negi himself told him to look after his grandson sometime before his death?

            If it wasn’t and he is just overreacting and putting the blame on Evangeline for something that couldn’t be avoided, then yes, he’s not right at all in this matter. Keep in mind, however, that his best friend, one of the persons that helped him achieve his goal in a better way, and helped him in recognizing himself as a true person and not just a puppet is the one who died – I think it’s an expected reaction, especially coming from a being like Fate.

            Kirie told he was a menace to humanity, but she herself stated “Or so I was told” so we can’t say FOR SURE he is evil. Now: I have nothing against Ala Alba’s name being used in the hands of a great dark or somewhat gray force, even if that’s the case. In fact, I always accepted the idea of a good character (or organization, for that matter) from the past having a face heel turn. Time can be very cruel, and reality even worse. This happens quite frequently, and… I’m with those who weren’t exactly fond of a lot of the 3-A girls. Seriously. One of the main reasons I gave UQ Holder a chance was because I saw all of them staying behind. Mana, Kaede, Chao, Chisame, these ones were awesome, but girls like Makie? Meh. I’d rather have the immortals over them, any day of the week. I lost count of how many chapters we lost with them slowing down the f***ing plot!

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I liked Makie for what she was. ^_~

            As for slowing down the plot, I like character development, so taking time for this isn’t wasted for me. But that’s just me. ^_^

          • Btw, sorry about the swearing in the end of the post, wish I could edit that one out. Dx

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            It was taken care of for ya. ^_^

  2. Hmm , Interesting , Fate keeping the name ” Ala Alba ” What does that even mean ? Could it be that Fate and his comrades aren`t really an enemy even though they are doing these things ?

    • both Neo Ala Alba and UQH seem aim to almost same good target but share different ways (Eva aims to protect humankind when Fate would likely wants to protect the legacy of Negi as his duty is to protect Mars), more over their leaders hate each others thank for the death of their closest friend.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        I think you are on the right track here. However, I think Fate took Ala Alba down a different path while Eva decided to form UQH with the same ideals as Negi had formed Ala Alba (and Nagi had formed Ala Rubra).

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I think it means that Fate is carrying on as he sees fit for his vision of how Ala Alba should have gone. That explains why there’s a UQ Holder.

  3. chaosprophet says:

    The problem of Kirie plan failing is that even f she can’t get Fate, if she already took the poison how do you stop her from dying and resetting time again? Although the chapter should answer that.

    “possibly time jumping himself”.
    I don’t think he have any means of time traveling himself. It is not something that simple to achieve.

    • I think the poison took abit time before killing Kirie , Which probably gave Fate abit time for an opening to escape and distant himself from them…

    • OverMaster says:

      Maybe Fate just petrified her before she could die? That’d be a pretty simple and straightforward answer.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      The problem of Kirie plan failing is that even f she can’t get Fate, if she already took the poison how do you stop her from dying and resetting time again? Although the chapter should answer that.

      You do something to keep her alive.

      “possibly time jumping himself”.
      I don’t think he have any means of time traveling himself. It is not something that simple to achieve.

      It just wouldn’t surprise me if he has something that can allow him to do this time jumping.

  4. cold_menthol says:

    Actually, I wonder if current Fate really knows about Kirie’s ability because Kirie killed herself in front of him.

    Even if that’s the case, that happened in the 1st attempt, if I remember correctly. That means, 2nd-attempt Fate should be the one who’s aware of Kirie’s ability, not the current Fate.
    After all, Fate didn’t encounter Kirie in the 7th attempt, so he didn’t get sent back to current attempt.
    (Based on chapter 32, current attempt should be the 8th attempt, right?)

    • chaosprophet says:

      Depends if the changes for others are cumulative or not. For instance, if she would die by herself now, without touching anyone, would she go back to the save with Touta who know nothing of current iteration but know about the previous one? Or would Touta reset entirely? We don’t know.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        I suspect that if things reset again, but no one touched Kirie, for Touta, it would be as if he’d reset that seventh time and came back with her while retaining his memories. I actually think that Kirie has reset a few times since then to make sure of things before they went in to attack Fate.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Actually, I wonder if current Fate really knows about Kirie’s ability because Kirie killed herself in front of him.

      If he was touching her when she reset on the first run, then I’d say “yes.”

      If Fate did get sent back once with knowledge, and Kirie had the reset to “retain memories”, then as I see it, every subsequent reset on the part of Kirie has Fate retaining the knowledge from that first encounter, but not any knowledge from any subsequent encounter. As such, this Fate should know Kirie’s ability, but he may see this as only their second encounter despite however many times Kirie has reset.

      • TeenRyu says:

        Fate didn’t know— because kirie was not expecting that clash, therefore she didn’t have her immortality set to take back mentalities

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          I think she always has things set to keep memories, and I think we saw her set MBS on their first go. (Or at least, the first go that we are aware of.)

          Regardless, on their first encounter, Fate had no support and easily took out the UQH members by himself. This encounter, he’s got lots of help. That suggests to me that his mind was sent back in time, whereupon he realized what happened and prepared for their next encounter.

          • cold_menthol says:

            She did put “MBS” in chapter 31, but i think “M” and “S” only apply to Kirie.

            I still can’t fully grasp how “B” or “F” works, especially the consequences after “F” is used. Like, if she brings Touta back, will there be 2 Toutas? Or will the old Touta be replaced with the one Kirie brings? I hope it’s the latter..
            Oh well, I’ll just wait until further explanation is provided, if there will be any..

            Anyway, since it’s Fate, I think there’s a possibility that he knows about Kirie’s ability even before this arc. He was Eva’s ally after all, and we don’t exactly know when UQ holder was founded, when its members meet Eva for the first time, or when Fate “broke up” with Eva.

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            Like, if she brings Touta back, will there be 2 Toutas? Or will the old Touta be replaced with the one Kirie brings? I hope it’s the latter..

            Paradoxes. ^_~

            Well, Kirie didn’t advertise her immortality. I agree that Eva probably knows, but I tend to suspect that Fate only learned about it from his first encounter with Kirie.

  5. Then it’s almost certain that it’s Tsukuyomi. After seeing the swordswoman, I have the same theory you presented the other day, that she attained some sort of immortality thanks to the Hina Blade and is still working to Fate, up to this day.

    Even though she was a hired mercenary, I think it’s expected that Tsukuyomi would be fighting alongside Fate up until now, because she started to develop some interest in (cutting) him, when he started showing emotions.

    That, and the fact that she was one of his top enforcers in Negima. A psycho supporter, I guess.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      While she may have been obsessed with Setsuna, she certainly became interested in Fate. I’m with you in that I can see her interest being such that she just continues to work with him. After all, they’ve been working together since the Kyoto arc in Negima. ^_^

  6. Aki says:

    Actually fate taking the name ala alba means he is inheriting negi will and his ideology and is not turning so called ‘evil’ with Cosmo Entelecheia.

    I know a few of you are ranting about how fate action does not justify the name of justice that ala alba represents but you have to understand that good and evil are both the same thing. If the mass and others agree what you are doing is right then it is justice but if what people and the mass majority feel what your doing is wrong then it is evil.

    For example… The series death note, both L and Light were evil and good even L admitted that whilst people view him as the good guy he admits that he isn’t one.

    So in 2065 it is likely that the immortals were actually ala alba and after negi so called death, fate inherited the guild and the group likely went their separate ways with fate doing slightly extreme stuff on negi behalf.

    Evageline went with a organisation called UQ holder and if what fate is true… Evageline is basically guilt tripping and uq holder could be a renamed branch of ala alba so basically both fate and Eva are doing the right thing but we view them as good or evil.

    • Dargor says:

      Sorry dude, but you don’t get to play the ambiguity card when you’re actions still far outstrip you’re own flowery words and ambitions. You can play the well intentioned extremist card till you’re blue in the face, but being in a position to try at the very least to mitigate some damage to the slums or taking hostages because you have a raging hate boner for you’re rival still makes it hard to redeem yourself. I still feel Fate got off way to easy for his dickery in Negima, and now that shit is going to repeat itself while he drags Ala Alba’s name through the mud? No thank you.

      Never mind the meta Ala Alba vs. UQ Holder that’s going on here. That is literally the shittiest thing you could do with that name.

      • “I still feel Fate got off way to easy for his dickery in Negima” …So, helping to save 67 MILLION to 1.2 BILLION people by being one of the main forces in a project to save the world, and being one of the core driving forces behind the Mars terraforming during all these years counts as “getting off way too easy”? Seriously, man?

        • Dargor says:

          His contributions were minimal at best (Ignoring the fact that he had no desire to stop said ritual until he got his face bashed in) and was morel like the Tsundere bulldog keeping an eye on Negi and getting rid of any potential “distractions”, I’m not convinced his role was essential towards Negi’s plan to begin with.

          Never mind the fact despite 80 years on his own have done absolutely nothing to instill any type of moral compass in him aside from his one tracked obsession with Negi, I’d say he only got a small slap on the wrist for everything he’s done (its debatable even at that). You can claim he saved them, but his definition of save was and still is nebulous.

          • No, from the words of Negi himself in MSN we can know for sure that Fate’s participation wasn’t exactly minimal, in fact it was the opposite. Negi said that his power was a necessary part of the plan and also said that if he died somehow, it would be detrimental to what he had in mind. And in UQ holder we see people saying that he was “a core driving force” or a “key figure” in the things he was involved with. Even though he had no intention to stop the ritual until the fight with Negi in the MM saga, he admitted that Negi would be the right one if his plan succeeded – he accepted that his methods were the better ones and did his best to help. As for him keeping an eye on Negi, that is true – albeit necessary. The plan would take years to accomplish and it had a lot of things at stake, the fate of the world both of them fought for(although each in their own way). Mistakes in the plans would be REALLY bad, and it was only natural to make sure things we’re going as smoothly as possible. As for the last part of your comment, I can’t disagree with you on this one. While I’m pretty sure he helped a lot in the past years because of what has been said, I need to see more about the current state of the world and his actions towards it to know for sure – if what Kirie said is really true, then yes, Fate is totally wrong in this matter, because it would mean he is throwing away everything Negi, himself and the others fought for because of pure hatred.

      • Aki says:

        Yeah but still whilst powerful hand was indeed behind the attacks on the slums it hard to say if it fates orders or if it someone else… Anyways ala alba purpose was to explore the magic world, find nagi and got accidently involved with the magical world and spent pretty mucho he last century fighting for world peace on mars in the magic world and the Mage of beginnings. Plus fate isn’t the type of person who would hurt the innocent without good reason… All in all you can’t judge powerful hands actions as fate/ala alba actions

      • Aki says:

        Anybody else starting to feel uq holder is starting really heated debates…

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Actually fate taking the name ala alba means he is inheriting negi will and his ideology and is not turning so called ‘evil’ with Cosmo Entelecheia.

      I don’t think Fate considered CE to be evil, but rather something required to save everyone. Destroying the forest to save the trees in a collective salvation moment is evil, but those who believe in that do not see it that way.

      • OverMaster says:

        Once someone starts employing rapists and gleeful murderers they’ve pretty much forfeited their ‘Oh, I only have the best ultimate intentions in mind’ cards. Aren’t there any better (and more trustworthy people) people out there to recruit than Evil Chao and Tsukuyomi (Mark II?)? Really?

        • I`ve seen the RAWS and these new helpers of Fate… Their character designs looks kinda bad in my opinion….

          • OverMaster says:

            Hey, I like the looks of the Gonk guy. It’s very different from Akamatsu’s usual designs, where everyone not named Konoemon looks about to walk down a model catwalk, and that’s refreshing. I only find a bit grating how the ugly guy is a ‘bad guy’ while all the ‘good guys’ are gorgeous.

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I’m suddenly remembering Die Hard, where they went for a bunch of bishounen-type guys for the villains.

            In fact I’m half chord with you, I find particularly charismatic swordsman with four arms. Incidentally Talking about swordsman, (specifically swordswoman) : MY GOD! Tsukuyomi became beautiful as an adult ^ ^ Not counted I think its bloody Personalities spring even more! I attands lots of her!

            Otherwise as I do not like the monk (poor karin, she seems to constantly pick up the most unsavory opponents xd) as though I must say that Over-Master has shearling in terms of chara-design, Akamatsu made ^ ^ good inovation. Very promising. It may be that we see a little more oriental magic. Until we knew Onmyodo. Will see you on the Buddhist magic (mantras)? I hope!

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I saw the Chinese scans. At this time, I’m not passing judgement.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Yeah, but in the mind of a psycho, do they think they are a psycho, no mater what sick stuff they do?

          • Dargor says:

            Like I said earlier, you can try and wax poetic about it by bringing in real world logic, but as far as the narrative is concerned its a moot point, especially given the genre’s tendency to paint one side as being completely in the wrong regardless of intentions.

    Hmm…For the image it shows that we forgot something about Fate; He can almost instantly petrify anyone who he comes into contact with. Sure it’ll depend on what part of the body is touching him, but i am pretty sure the second she latched on the Fate, he was actually shocked and accelerated the petrification and since Kirie’s whole body was on him, it wouldn’t be to much to assume that it went faster than they thought.

    And because Eva mentioned something about her current state, I don’t think she will get involved, and I think she knows what is about to happen.(She was pretty nonchalant about negi turning into a monster or possibly dying from M.E) I think she knew this might be happening. Now my wording may be funny, but take a couple minutes to understand what i’m saying.

    • Evangeline , She probably knew what was going to happen , In Chapter 32 , The moment she saw Kirie`s save point , She said ” So , How will this turn out ? “

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        Yeah, I figure Eva knows all about Kirie’s power. I wonder if she prepares at all in case Kirie brings back house guest. *lol*

        • OverMaster says:

          Hm, from previous loops we know this team can’t win against Fate, and that was before they lost their reboot trump card *and* Fate got help. They HAVE TO receive some extra help from the rest of the organization now, unless Touta develops some new duper-super-uber power to beat or at least escape Fate, which at this point would be frankly ridiculous.

          Of course, there’s also the alternative Fate does defeat Touta and takes him to his HQ even if the others manage to escape. That at least might supply some insight on what’s Fate aiming for and why.

            Always bet on ridiculous. ^_~

            That would be an interesting turn.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I didn’t forget, but Fate was petrifying her on their first encounter. It was a question of which would happen first — Kirie dying or Fate petrifying her. Now we know. ^_~

      And because Eva mentioned something about her current state, I don’t think she will get involved

      Now that we know Kirie’s plan failed, I too do not expect to see Eva.

    Poor Kirie, first she gets throw like a bag and know Karin uses her like a bag.

    As for the chapter itself, i see a lot of people complaining here but also in some other forums/sites, not only about Fate ethics, but also his current power and personality. I have some theories about these three:
    Ethics – One of the things that i noticed about Fate is that he loved to taunt his enemies, particuraly in his first battle to Negi, so saying this a new thing that Akamatsu wrote his wrong. And he also has plans to counter attack his enemies and has allies/mercenaries to help him acomplish his objetives, just like in the past.
    Powers: Just like yukihime, we don´t know if fate´s power increased or decreased. He is facing immortals, beings who lived thousands of years so they are clearly a threat. As for his magic shield breaking up, i believe Touta sword has some anti-magic properties, the force of the impact destroyed the shield. Theres another theory but my English is quite bad so i will tell you later.
    Personality- I keep this brief, Negi was a rival to Fate, they fought for their dreams and later they joined together to accomplish a plan that might or not work. So Negi´s death probably hurt him more than we think.

    As for the chapter itself, this is the first time that Kuroumaru will fight against an opponent alone, so I´m kinda of excited.
    Karin will fight again, i find it funny that in the first battle karin fought in one of worst places and know she has to babysit karin. Poor girl can´t catch a break.
    Finally Ikkuu versus Tsukyomy. This is probably the battle that i´m more excited since Ikkuu his already injured but he also has some policy about women. But also i Want to see how strong and how much tsukyomi changed in this years.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      On your Ethics point, I agree with you. I don’t see any change in Fate’s behavior. Even in their first bloody encounter, I don’t think he killed anyone, considering they are all immortals.

      In terms of power, I can see Fate getting stronger and stronger, simply because he’s an artificial construct. He’s very much like Spider-Zero from A.I. Love You and can be upgraded.

      In terms of personality, I agree with you. I think Fate took Negi’s death very hard,

      But also i Want to see how strong and how much tsukyomi changed in this years.

      I have to admit that I’m curious to see this as well.

    • NT says:

      The sword may have been able to cut the shield, but Fate was not even injured, which at this point Touta called him a ‘monster’, so I would say that the sword even at 500tons(was that right?) isn’t able to scratch him, so fate’s power i would say either increased considerably or it has something to do with him being the Averruncus of the Earth.
