UQ Holder Chapter 81 SPOILER Info (Update #2: More info, now with images!)

Here is some SPOILER info for the upcoming UQ Holder Chapter 81, courtesy of 2ch. (My review of UQ Holder Chapter 81 should come out Friday.)

UQ HOLDER Chapter 81 SPOILERS

The UQ Holder Chapter 81 goodness begins.^_^

This looks to be Chapter 81’s spoilers.

修行の意味

キティの見立てでは、刀太の中で二つの魔力が渦を巻いているという
つまり、闇の魔力とマジキャンが相殺しあいただの人レベルにまで足を引っ張る
これを遠心分離機の要領でえり分けるのがダーナの目的らしい
ダーナ本人は刀太いじめのためだと言ってるが

それから一週間後
九郎丸たちが試練を乗り越え帰ってくると
刀太のフープの数は異常なほどになっていた
さらにそれと同じだけのフープが2山ほど宙に浮いている

■浮いている輪!一体、刀太は何をした!?

I suppose we are going to learn the purpose behind Dana’s training regiment. There’s something about Kitty (Eva), Touta, and dark magic, but it is beyond me. Kuroumaru, Santa, and Kirei appear to return after a week. I guess Touta is going to have several hoops on him by this time.

Anyway, we’ll have to wait for someone with some actual Japanese skills to come bail us out and let us know what tidbits are inside. ^_^

I’ll make updates when we get a translation, more info, or spoiler images.

Update #1: DerGilga gives a shot at the translation. ^_^

a poor man’s attempt of a translation:

修行の意味
the significance of the training

キティの見立てでは、刀太の中で二つの魔力が渦を巻いているという
Kitty’s diagnosis is that in Touta two magical powers create a vortex

つまり、闇の魔力とマジキャンが相殺しあいただの人レベルにまで足を引っ張る
in short, the power of darkness and ‘magician’ canceled each other out and holding (him?) back onto human level

これを遠心分離機の要領でえり分けるのがダーナの目的らしい
the sorting out of this as in a centrifuge seems to be beautiful* Dana’s aim

ダーナ本人は刀太いじめのためだと言ってるが
beautiful* Dana herself says that this is the purpose of Touta’s bullying

それから一週間後
and then one week later

九郎丸たちが試練を乗り越え帰ってくると
Kuromaru and the rest pass and return from their trials

刀太のフープの数は異常なほどになっていた
the number of Touta’s hoops has risen to an abnormal number

さらにそれと同じだけのフープが2山ほど宙に浮いている
furthermore, that and the same ?amount? of hoops is hovering high in the air
// no idea what the ‘2’ means in that context

■浮いている輪!一体、刀太は何をした!?
hovering rings! …the heck, what is Touta doing!?

*my addition 😉

Thank you for your efforts! 😀

As to the “2山”, it is weird, but could the hoops Touta has go up to the height of two mountains? Or more likely, the number of hoops he has, were they stacked on top of each other, would go to the height of two mountains.

Anyway, I wonder if this is where Touta becomes the poor man’s Negi. Making Touta anti-mana gave him an interesting element. However, if that’s not the case and there are two forces at work, canceling each other out to keep Touta “human”, then that’s just opening the door for poor man’s Negi to emerge, which is boring (Touta being a clone of Negi not withstanding).

More updates as needed.

Update #2: The spoiler images from MK.

UQ Holder Chapter 81

Oh heck yeah! Chachazero returns after having been dissed in chapter 1’s first pages.  I’ve been wanting this all along, going back to Negima. I really didn’t think we’d get it, but I’m glad there’s at least some kind of acknowledgement of Chachazero.

Suddenly, I’m excited to see the chapter Tuesday evening.

Ah, but there were more images regarding our MC and his hoops.

So this is what 2山 referred to.

  1. NML says:

    According to Akamatsu’s twitter, chapter 83 will have a colour page, I think, Google translate can only get me so far.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Yeah, I hear ya on Google Translate. It wouldn’t surprise me if there’s a color page. Akamatsu-sensei had mentioned doing those in lieu of double chapters that some do (like Hata-sensei Mashima-sensei with Fairy Tail).

      • NML says:

        Hiro Mashima does Fairy Tail.

        Also, volume 7 of UQ Holder is being published on June 17th so we should be seeing the cover soon, I hope it’s better than volume 6’s cover.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Hiro Mashima does Fairy Tail.

          This is why I’m not a professional writer. My brain and my fingers often do two separate things. Thanks for the heads up.

          Also, volume 7 of UQ Holder is being published on June 17th so we should be seeing the cover soon, I hope it’s better than volume 6’s cover.

          One can only hope.

      • TheNameThatCouldJustNotBe says:

        What are color pages exactly they’re never in the manga books or anime so what’s there perpise

        • mattcgw says:

          Well, to fans conformation of a character’s link to another, it also helps preproduction on a adaptation.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          They will be part of Crunchyroll’s release (or they should be). And in Japan, those who purchase Weekly Shounen Magazine will get them. Also, unless I’m mistaken, the Japanese tankoubons will have the color pages as well. Akamatsu-sensei didn’t do much in terms of color pages for Negima!, but he did the first few pages of Negima! in color, and those were included in the tankoubon.

          Because color pages are an extra expense for U.S. publishers, Kodansha Comics won’t touch them with a 10 foot pole. Some companies will do them. Dark Horse did an outstanding job with Chobits and the color pages!

          • NML says:

            I really wish digital volumes(eg kindle) had colour pages.

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I agree. I suspect that in those cases, the licensor didn’t even bother getting the color source pages, or “they weren’t provided.” Of course, in the case of Kodansha Comics, that’s all BS. They should have color pages for everything they have up on Crunchyroll and there’s no excuse not to.

  3. Mattcgw says:

    So touta could still have konoka’s op magic level and op royal magic as well. Since the were in a equilibrium of sorts, magia had no power source to feed of. Until he gain magical vampirism which magia could consume and bolster.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      If Touta is a clone of Negi, then Konoka doesn’t come into play at all. The surname would just appear to be the name of the people who took Touta and basically adopted him.

  4. Mattcgw says:

    It also fits in with a alot of early thoughts that touta’s memory’s and magic was sealed.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I don’t know if this means Touta’s magic was sealed or not. It could be why he’s called a poor copy since the forces that Negi used worked together while in Touta, they cancel each other out.

  5. Dargor says:

    Why yes, this is just what Touta needs, another set of powers.

    Akamatsu, for the love of all this is holy, what in the hell is going through your skooma addled mind? We could just, for once in this godforsaken series, let the poor kid focus on him training skills and powers he actually has, instead of lobbing more and more on top of him at every turn.

    • Seimei says:

      But this is precisely what is done here. Basically magia-erebea is a technique that requires the use of magic to be used fully.
      by coséquent … ^^

      I would add that in practice apart from ME what you may say, Tota NO special skills did precisely as to the Gravity Blade apart from increasing severity it is not much in my opinion.

      And do not talk to me of shunpo, has a basic combat skill in akamatsuvers. ^^

    • Seimei says:

      I wanted to say “to the Gravity Blade apart besides increasing the weight of things it is not much in my opinion.”

      Lol I have not been enough quick to completely change my sentence ^^.

    • Seimei says:

      Speaking of gravity, I have an idea. You spoke to deepen the powers Tota and I had already pointed out that apart from the EM and gravity blade (which can only increase the weight as I recall), Tota was NOT capacity to Developer.

      But what if Tota was learning the magic of gravity? On the one hand it would go perfectly with both his sword and with his passion for space and secondly, I would like or even what shall a armationem gravity magic Version

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Why yes, this is just what Touta needs, another set of powers.

      Suddenly I’m hearing Cypress Hill rapping, “Kicking your ass, leaving your face in the grass!” 😉

      Akamatsu, for the love of all this is holy, what in the hell is going through your skooma addled mind?

      😆 The Khajiit demand you not insult the Skooma. 😉

  6. NML says:

    Hmm, so Touta has magic, come on pactio with kuroumaru :L

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Heh. Well, he doesn’t have magic…yet. And I am seriously doubting that we’ll see the pactio system at all here, even in flashback (which would be a shame since I want to see Chachazero).

      • NML says:

        I’d like to see a pactio between Kuroumaru and Touta with Touta as the ministra :L

        Well, Eva had a doll contract with Chachazero, which Chachamaru said is different to a pactio which is why she was afraid she wouldn’t be able to pactio with Negi.

        Akamatsu did hint at pactio with Hoodie having a similar-looking card.

        After all, they are still a part of this universe, I’d like to see people in the tournament utilising pactio, it would be a good place to feature it.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          If Touta has a state of anti-mana, he couldn’t make a pactio with any one. Of course if that all resolves, that’s another story. 😉

  7. DerGilga says:

    山ほど is an adverb meaning it further describes the verb -> hovering as high as a mountain
    I guess 2山ほど could mean 2 mountains high, but then again I’m still learning ^^

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      You are well ahead of me. I wish I had more free time so I could get back to Japanese studies.

  8. Aki says:

    Im guessing as a clone of negi, touta has a similar magical source but for some reason he has a secondary source which interferes and counteracts the first source of power and renders him human.

    Chances are magia erebea (dark magic) is one source and that is inherited from negi and there is a secondary source that’s interfering with it other magia erebea is attempting to eat away at this other source

  9. Krono says:

    Speaking of Fairy Tail, the chapter 11 of Fairy Tail Zero is finally out.

  10. TeenRyu says:

    Thinking on this, people are complaining about how Touta doesn’t learn techniques; he may be getting the same training as negi. Remember? Eva put Negi through spartan training originally, refusing to teach him techniques. The only reason he learned them was because he overworked himself by training with eva then training with Ku-fei then doing self training ontop of that. Touta isn’t at that level of drive yet, so this path works. Getting him to a true starting point by fixing his issues via power (as it’s being revealed) will allow him to use his full talents to learn, including techniques. What he learns will be shown after this; I personally can’t wait because it shows he has some promise, and we haven’t met the person who will teach him “techniques”. We’ve met the one who teaches him power and balance, now for the one to form him into his unique style.

    • Seimei says:

      Yes, and especially (although I know some here do not like the idea at all lol) I hope he will mastered the magia-erebea and after lerned magic, to create a armationem.
      Some even among hardcore fans of UQ do not like the idea that magia-erebea is still at center of the scene (I know some peaple like this, on French forums ^^). Not because they do not want to see again the ME or because they don’t want that Tota became stronger, but because they wanted to see Tota become overpowered but as a pure swordsman

      But they forget three important things:
      1. magia-erebea is different depending of the element that the user absorbs with it. Personally I almost cnsider technique of Eva and the technique of Negi as two completely different techniques. They just have the same “base spar.” Tota can very well create its own armationem while different element than the armationem of Negi and not make him a fool repeat Negi.

      2. Even if some are disputed on the French forums, I think Tota has already reached the maximum of his abilities with the gravity sword, I recalls that up to 500 tons and he has already reached to weight maximum. I think that, contrary to what Dargor said, Tota has rightly already reached the maximum capacity he could have precisely, without magic.

      And we see that from the arc Sayako he knows defeat after defeat. Besides, he never had a real victory lol actually, as I keep repeating it here.

      He has reached the limits of its purely physical potential. If he wants to raise it at a Rakan level, it will take him 20 years and he has NOT time. Even cosider that one month in the castle of Dana may possibly correspond to one year and so after a year, when the tournament starts, it will result in 10 years but… Not enough for me.

      It is time for him to learn magic and magia-erebea^^.

      3. Negima was never seen mage swordsman. I would even give that a mage combining magic with the art of swordmanship. ^^

      In short I can not wait.

    • Dargor says:

      Not really. There was never a pretense for Negi to learn SUPER AWESOME SHOUNEN ATTACKS under Eva. That wasn’t what it was about. The key part was actually getting Negi’s head “in the game” so to speak so he could actually participate effectively in combat, with a lot of conditioning and tactics to go along with it. It was only until we got to Rakan did we get the trite conventions of a shounen super power, and that pretty much consumed all of Negima and ditched it in a dank, black hole.

      This training is literally operating off the pretense of a “finishing move” that has been brought up in previous chapters, and heading long way there. Instead of getting some semblance of training out of it, we’re just giving Touta even more powers to work with, because why not. The kid already has a plethora of things to work off of and make a reasonable story, but no, we’re just going to keep upping the ante forever and ever until we hit the proverbial glass ceiling. Its Akamatsu’s way of artifically inducing a way to reach late series content ala Negima and going from there, instead of building things up naturally.

      • Seimei says:

        “It was only up to we got to Rakan did we get the trite conventions of a shounen super power, and That pretty much Consumed all of Negima and ditched it in a dank, black hole.”

        For some, had the contrary at the time that Negima is REMOVED from Black Holes, lol.

        Looks like you really have trouble understanding some have preferred the second half of Negima to the first. If I can design some have a preferred first half of Negima, although is was not the case for me, why can you not yourself, create another point of view?

  11. dominic says:

    Could it be that the second blond woman is chachazero with a new body

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I would tend to say no on that. It would be interesting, but that woman looks far too sane to be another incarnation of Chachazero.

  12. don says:

    The resemblance between teen Negi and Touta in that second picture is uncanny haha, seems like a lot information will be given this chapter. Can’t wait any longerrrr

  13. kyon says:

    http://i.imgur.com/hLS4cVf.jpg i just found out the uq holder volume 7 cover hehe

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      So, he has Eva’s Yukihime form doing the Doll Master fingering. And she’s not done any of that in UQH. 🙁

  14. NT says:

    So… the only reason dana is making him do this is because she pretty much knows about whats wrong with Touta as far as using magic goes?

    So she then makes him go through with spinning Hula hoops to Unwrape the stupid things? great. ow he’ll get a big power up just by hula hooping… tha actually sounds conceivable..

    • cold_menthol says:

      Well, you know what they say; “The basic is the most important”. :p

      • NY says:

        Yep. Basics work. Then the real kicker would be that that Duo(catgirl dragon girl since i can’t remember their names), or at least the cat girl, is able to use Kanka.

        I wanna see a Kanka user anyway.

  15. mattcgw says:

    found this while fishing for the tumblr page that had the volume 7 image on, I came across this. http://www.genkidama.com.br/xil/love-hina-ken-akamatsu-curiosidades-level-mini/
    I had always wondered why Final Fantasy X’s story seemed like a template for negi, turns out his brother worked for square Enix on X/X-2, for music. If the article is to be believed, It’s also brazilian (I think)

    I cannot comprehend; however, why there’s so little information about sensei in english, but there’s load’s in spanish and french. As well as picture’s, Truly the weirdest part.

    Ironically I couldn’t find the page that the volume image from.

      I’m not sure. It may be that English audiences don’t care as much about the author as they do the author’s creations. 🙁

  16. mattcgw says:

    also akamatsu’s former studio and (maybe still currant)apartment are freaking huge!

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      You need a decent amount of space when you have a lot of assistants. Bigger manga-ka can afford it.

      Thanks for the video link. 🙂
