UQ HOLDER Chapter 100 SPOILERS

The UQ Holder Chapter 100 goodness begins.^_^

This looks to be Chapter 100’s spoilers.

カラーページ:夏凜を全裸に剥いたところ

裸の突き合い

刀太がしのむもどきの持ってきたレース機を前に興奮していると
みぞれがお重を持ってくる
金に物を言わせたかと思いきや、これがみぞれの手作り弁当

そこで…一空がとんでもないことを言い出す
女子が失恋中の男子の背中を50回ゴシゴシすると結ばれるという別館伝説

かくて次の刀太の入浴時間は背中争奪戦となった

なお、大乱闘をよそに、勝ったのは雪姫

■持っていかれた――!!

Well, looks like more harem fun and I think the onsen plays a roll too with the girls wanting to get beautiful for Touta. Of course, I could be reading that all wrong, but if I’m right, it reminds me of Love Hina.

Now, time to wait for a translation. Updates to follow, as needed.

Update #1: A couple of translations, from Rikutan and DerGilga.

First up, Rikutan.

Some translations:

カラーページ:夏凜を全裸に剥いたところ
Color page: Karin peeled (literal translation) naked

裸の突き合い
Naked tsukiai (sorry, I can’t think of lit. transl., but this refers to a bath between Touta & co.)

刀太がしのむもどきの持ってきたレース機を前に興奮していると
While Touta is getting excited over pseudo-Shinomu’s raver (probably that segway she rode),
みぞれがお重を持ってくる,
Mizore (Ayaka’s granddaughter) brings a box.
金に物を言わせたかと思いきや、これがみぞれの手作り弁当
Though the contents were thought to be money, turns out to be Mizore’s home-made lunch box.
しかもそんなことをおくびにも出さないいい子っぷりに傍観者のキリヱ完敗
Kirie feels complete defeat against this little girl (Mizore)
そこで…一空がとんでもないことを言い出す
Then, Ikkuu starts saying something unexpected:
女子が失恋中の男子の背中を50回ゴシゴシすると結ばれるという別館伝説
There is a saying that, when a girl washes/scrubs a heart-broken boy’s back 50 times, they shall be matched/joined together.

かくて次の刀太の入浴時間は背中争奪戦となった
So begins a battle in the bath over who washes Touta’s back.
参戦者:夏凜、キリヱ、しのむもどき、みぞれ、九郎丸
Participants: Karin, Kirie, pseudo-Shinomu, Mizore, Kuroumaru
なお、大乱闘をよそに、勝ったのは雪姫
However, without getting involved in the melee, the one who wins is Yukihime.

■持っていかれた――!!
(Implied winner position of battle or Touta, ambiguous) was taken away (by Yukihime)—-!!

Yay for 100th chapter!

And now, DerGilga.

カラーページ:夏凜を全裸に剥いたところ
colour page: the place where Karin was stripped naked

裸の突き合い
she charges in naked

刀太がしのむもどきの持ってきたレース機を前に興奮していると
When Touta is excited about the “R/Leesu”-plane pseudo-Shinomu brought with her
みぞれがお重を持ってくる
Mizore brings a “multi-tiered food box”
金に物を言わせたかと思いきや、これがみぞれの手作り弁当
is she letting the money talk? or so he thought, but it is Mizore’s handmade lunchbox.
しかもそんなことをおくびにも出さない いい子っぷりに傍観者のキリヱ完敗
moreover when she isn’t saying a word about this matter at all, the bystanding Kiriee is utterly defeated by her good child manners
そこで…一空がとんでもないことを言い出す
then… Ikkuu brings up an unexpected/ridiculous thing
女子が失恋中の男子の背中を50回ゴシゴシすると結ばれるという別館伝説
When a young girl scrubs the back of a young man in unrequited love 50 times, they are wedded, or so the ?annex? legend says

かくて次の刀太の入浴時間は背中争奪戦となった
thus Touta’s next bathing hour turns into a contest for his back
参戦者:夏凜、キリヱ、しのむもどき、みぞれ、九郎丸
those going to war: Karin, Kiriee, pseudo-Shinomu, Mizore, Kuroumaru

なお、大乱闘をよそに、勝ったのは雪姫
more, they start a great brawl and the one who wins, Yukihime

■持っていかれた――!!
They were beaten*–!!

*no idea of to connect the 持って properly

Thanks to you both!

  3. OverMaster says:

    Wow, it’s like Every Harem Cliche Ever crammed up into a single chapter. I think I’m going to cry. Sorry, I meant vomit.

    • ashsang says:

      I have similar information as yours from net, except another message [另外,福利还是有的,尤其是刀太被夏凛踩的时候(夏凛真心是这一作的福利担当)
      话说我好久没发过剧透了耶]

      the overall meaning is that: the visual welfare of chapter 100 is coming from Karin.,especially when Karin is trampling Touta.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        So that’s from Chinese fans.

        • ashsang says:

          another confirmed message is that: yukihime does not participate in the battle and yukihime does not know the rumor of scrubing man’s back … she is just passing by, and hears Touta’s soliloquise (why they tried to scrub my back for 50 times). and yukihime successfully scrubsTouta’s back for 50 times, before others realize it.

            刀太「こんな暇なら武道会予選に行きたいとこだぜ」
            三太「まあまあ、俺達なら締め切りギリギリでもいけるって」
            入ってきたのは夏凛「あら?あなた達だけ?」
            刀太「へ?」
            掃除のブラシを持っている夏凛「てっきり大騒ぎになっていると思ったのだけれど?」
            刀太「かっ、夏凛先輩?」
            三太「あれ今の時間は男子じゃ…」
            夏凛「いえ私はただ様子を見に…」
            持っているブラシを見る夏凛「(これでもゴシゴシは成立するのかしらね?)」そして刀太の顔を踏んで俯かせる夏凛「近衛刀太、背中を流しながらちょっと話でもしましょうか」
            刀太「いやいやいや何言ってんだアンタ!?背中流す感じじゃないだろコレ」
            ブラシでこする夏凛「まあ遠慮せずに、ところで雪姫様の昔の話だけど…」
            刀太「ギャーッ!?」

            キリエ「ちょっと夏凛アンタってば!」
            忍もやってくる「と…刀太センパイ大丈夫ですか?!」
            刀太「おおしのぶ?あれ?やっぱ女子の入浴時間だったか?」

            キリエ「好きじゃないわよ!これは不し者としてのメンツの問題よ!!人間に易々と負けるわけにはいかないのッ!」
            刀太「いやいいって背中なんて」
            その声に反応して刀太の方を見るキリエ
            刀太の背中を流している忍「まままーまー流させてください、センパイには色々とお世話になってますから9、10」
            刀太「えー?背中流すの流行ってんの?」
            忍「29、30、31、32…(あああ私は何を)」【图片】そこにみぞれがやってきて忍を吹き飛ばす「どりゃーッ」
            忍「へふーん!?」
            みぞれ「甘いですわしのぶ!」
            刀太の方へと動きだすキリエとみぞれ、2人の目が合う
            みぞれ「(やはりあの女どもも敵なのね!ここは!)」
            キリエ「(先手必勝!弱肉強食!早い者勝ちよ!!)」【图片】もの凄いスピードで背中をこする2人「1234567891011121314…」
            刀太「ギャアアア!?」
            横目で見合う2人「(やるわね!けど…遅いわ!この勝負もらった!)」
            最後の50回目をこすろうとした時、刀太の姿が消える
            刀太を抱えて移動させたのは九郎丸
            刀太「おおっ、九郎丸?」
            九郎丸「危ないとこだった!」
            キリエ「九郎丸!」
            みぞれ「あいつも敵ね!逃がしませんわ!」
            みぞれに吹き飛ばされた忍が機械を出す「追いますっ」
            夏凛「意外と行動派ね」
            刀太「何なんだこれ?」
            九郎丸「逃げるんだ刀太君!彼女達は君の背中を狙っている!50回こすられれば終わりだ!」
            刀太「えっ?スマンもう一度」
            九郎丸「ここは僕に任せて!さあ行くんだ!」
            刀太「お…おう?」
            九郎丸「(あれ…何かコレしっくりくる…?)」
            キリエとみぞれが同時に飛んでくる
            キリエ「いい子ぶってんじゃないわよーッ!!」
            みぞれ「敵は排除ですわ!」
            吹き飛ばされる刀太
            九郎丸「キッ、キリエちゃん待ってこれは…!」
            キリエ「問答無用!これは競争よ!」
            みぞれ「雪広みぞれ流かかと落とし!」
            忍は激しい争いをする3人のちょっと後ろの所にいる
            吹き飛ばされた刀太、そこで声をかけられる
            **「騒がしいな、何をやってる」
            刀太「いや、背中を流すだの50回だのなんかよくわからな…え?」
            振り返るとそれは雪姫「何だ背中を流すのか?それくらい構わんぞ」
            刀太「へ?」
            争っている4人、そこで忍が気付く「まっ、待ってみんな、刀太センパイが…」
            みぞれ「へ…」
            忍「あ…」
            キリエ「ちょ」
            九郎丸「な…」
            刀太の背中を流している雪姫「この程度遠慮するな 43、44」
            刀太「いやっ、でもなんつーか」
            雪姫「何だ、私にフラれたのを気にしてるいるのか?らしくもない」
            刀太「いやっ、そーじゃねーけどよ なんつーか」
            雪姫「48、49、50 終わったぞ、これがなんだ」
            刀太「いや知らねーよ」
            4人「あ あ…ああ…あああーッ!!」

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            Heh!

          • rikutan says:

            Hey, that’s pretty much the entire story of this upcoming chapter.

        • DerGilga says:

          大乱闘をよそに
          without entering the great brawl

          I messed that part up, among others …, sorry 🙁

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Well, Sensei has a lot of time to make up when there were no harem antics. 😉

  4. ryuuya says:

    Karin? Then…

  5. Dhdhd says:

    Pretty sure it happened in Negima as well.
    Oh well. Yukihime x Touta are obvious stuffs. I guess we can get to hear more about Eva’s past or why saving the world is Touta way of saving Eva.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I tend to suspect that we’ve seen nearly all we are going to see of Eva’s past, save maybe the odd panel or two flashback when she was with Negi. I hope I’m wrong.

  6. Alliriyan says:

    I was hoping the hundredth chapter would bring plot or pactios, I’m actually genuinely disappointed that it’s more shallow harem crap. The ‘competition’ between them would be much more intense if it revolved around their own personalities and skills (or plot!!) rather than how they will attempt to bait Oblivious Boy.

    Hmm, I am losing faith in this manga all of a sudden.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Well, UQ Holder is pretty much a random manga and has been since nearly the beginning. Akamatsu-sensei seems keen on not making things predictable, even as he draws from things like the harem.

  7. Mattcgw says:

    Well their are my hopes crushed for the series, alongside a good adaptation:
    So the future will be as much cheap harem action until his Editor taps on his shoulder then wham random plotthread reappears for 2 chapters never to be heard of again or Negima bait.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I think this go around, Akamatsu-sensei has much more say on what he writes, so he writes whatever he wants.

  8. Evil says:

    Stop fighting girls… you all must defeat the Ultimate Boss first or else there’s no hope for winning…

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Bur first, Touta needs a battle harem, thus the chicks have to battle it out to establish their positions in the harem. 😉

      • OverMaster says:

        A battle harem? Why? Going from Negima experience, we know the ‘battle’ harem ends up being good for nothing but being walloped down while the hero fights the long time rival all by himself, and then having a single one of the partners help him oneshot the true boss in a single chapter.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Well, that’s when we see them in action. 😉 Actually, early on in Negima, Setsuna and Asuna were good battle partners for Negi. The others had their moments too, but that’s the problem when you write a story where the MC must be the hero at all costs. It forces other characters to either have to be locked away or made to look stupid.

          • Dargor says:

            Except it wasn’t mutually exclusive. The Mahora-Fest (and the reason why its one of the best arcs in Negima) pulled it off, with the “main” characters ultimately beaten out during the tournament, out maneuvered by Chao, and having the so called universally important MC out of commission and needed to be rescued. It provides an example of how you can have all of the characters be important throughout the story, without holding onto the cliche singular character saving the day all of the time.

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I don’t disagree there at all.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Thanks for the tip. It is weird that the MK post was heavily delayed in showing up on the front page. I wonder if he’s using some kind of caching.

    キリエ「え?」
    夏凛「好きなのね?」
    キリエ「好きじゃないわよッ」
    夏凛「でも確かにスゴイわね、あの2人の積極性 限りある若さだからこそのエネルギー 私達不し者が唯一、人間に敵わない点かも知れないわ」

    刀太「いやいやいや何言ってんだアンタ!?背中流す感じじゃないだろコレ」
    ブラシでこする夏凛「まあ遠慮せずに、ところで雪姫様の昔の話だけど…」
    刀太「ギャーッ!?」
    そこにキリエが走ってきて夏凛に飛び蹴りをする「たーっ」
    夏凛「あらキリエ」
    キリエ「ちょっと夏凛アンタってば!」
    忍もやってくる「と…刀太センパイ大丈夫ですか?!」
    刀太「おおしのぶ?あれ?やっぱ女子の入浴時間だったか?」
    ハッとする忍「(こここれは…セ…センパイの背中が眼前に…こっこれはある種のチャンスなのでは…?えっ、チャンスってなんの?私は何言って…)」
    キリエ「全然興味ない顔しておいて1番乗りとはどういうこと夏凛!?アンタも好きなの!?」
    夏凛「いえ違うの、デッキブラシで磨いてただけだから そういうあなたも完全に」
    キリエ「好きじゃないわよ!これは不し者としてのメンツの問題よ!!人間に易々と負けるわけにはいかないのッ!」
    刀太「いやいいって背中なんて」
    その声に反応して刀太の方を見るキリエ
    刀太の背中を流している忍「まままーまー流させてください、センパイには色々とお世話になってますから9、10」
    刀太「えー?背中流すの流行ってんの?」
    忍「29、30、31、32…(あああ私は何を)」【图片】そこにみぞれがやってきて忍を吹き飛ばす「どりゃーッ」
    忍「へふーん!?」
    みぞれ「甘いですわしのぶ!」
    刀太の方へと動きだすキリエとみぞれ、2人の目が合う
    みぞれ「(やはりあの女どもも敵なのね!ここは!)」
    キリエ「(先手必勝!弱肉強食!早い者勝ちよ!!)」【图片】もの凄いスピードで背中をこする2人「1234567891011121314…」
    刀太「ギャアアア!?」
    横目で見合う2人「(やるわね!けど…遅いわ!この勝負もらった!)」
    最後の50回目をこすろうとした時、刀太の姿が消える
    刀太を抱えて移動させたのは九郎丸
    刀太「おおっ、九郎丸?」
    九郎丸「危ないとこだった!」
    キリエ「九郎丸!」
    みぞれ「あいつも敵ね!逃がしませんわ!」
    みぞれに吹き飛ばされた忍が機械を出す「追いますっ」
    夏凛「意外と行動派ね」
    刀太「何なんだこれ?」
    九郎丸「逃げるんだ刀太君!彼女達は君の背中を狙っている!50回こすられれば終わりだ!」
    刀太「えっ?スマンもう一度」
    九郎丸「ここは僕に任せて!さあ行くんだ!」
    刀太「お…おう?」
    九郎丸「(あれ…何かコレしっくりくる…?)」
    キリエとみぞれが同時に飛んでくる
    キリエ「いい子ぶってんじゃないわよーッ!!」
    みぞれ「敵は排除ですわ!」
    吹き飛ばされる刀太
    九郎丸「キッ、キリエちゃん待ってこれは…!」
    キリエ「問答無用!これは競争よ!」
    みぞれ「雪広みぞれ流かかと落とし!」
    忍は激しい争いをする3人のちょっと後ろの所にいる
    吹き飛ばされた刀太、そこで声をかけられる
    **「騒がしいな、何をやってる」
    刀太「いや、背中を流すだの50回だのなんかよくわからな…え?」
    振り返るとそれは雪姫「何だ背中を流すのか?それくらい構わんぞ」
    刀太「へ?」
    争っている4人、そこで忍が気付く「まっ、待ってみんな、刀太センパイが…」
    みぞれ「へ…」
    忍「あ…」
    キリエ「ちょ」
    九郎丸「な…」
    刀太の背中を流している雪姫「この程度遠慮するな 43、44」
    刀太「いやっ、でもなんつーか」
    雪姫「何だ、私にフラれたのを気にしてるいるのか?らしくもない」
    刀太「いやっ、そーじゃねーけどよ なんつーか」
    雪姫「48、49、50 終わったぞ、これがなんだ」
    刀太「いや知らねーよ」
    4人「あ あ…ああ…あああーッ!!」
    その頃、1人でお風呂を満喫している三太「ふー、いいお湯」
    次回、UQHOLDER! ユーキューホルダー 101 へ!!

    i do not how to upload the picture, if you want you can mail me. But i think it not hard to find them.

  10. ashsang says:

    one important thing is that kirie and mizore scrubed 49 times. yukihime scrund 44 times and stoped to have a disccusion with Touta. After that, Youkihime just counted FROm 48. you know what i am meaning to.

  11. OverMaster says:

    Suzumiya Haruhi predicted UQ Holder’s style of plotting. I quote:

    After the commercial, the story now takes us to a brand new setting, with all the battles from before all completely forgotten. Suddenly we’re now in a romantic comedy, I seriously don’t know what the director is thinking anymore.

    According to the script, Mikuru has settled down in Itsuki’s place, and the story’s now basically a fluff story about a young couple living together. The romance is so cheesy that one feels like playing dead just to get through the embarrassment of having to watch this.

    Scenes include Itsuki trying to swallow some terrible cooking by an excited Mikuru; Mikuru sending Itsuki off to school at the door, accidentally touching Itsuki’s finger, and jumping in shock in an exaggerated way; Mikuru blushing furiously; and Mikuru working hard on the chores and merrily greeting Itsuki as he returns from school.

    I felt like screaming, ‘Give me a break already!’ However, screams like these are likely to fall on deaf ears, so naturally I suppressed the impulse. Itsuki and Mikuru continue singing songs of praise for pure romance. Koizumi, mind if I swap places with you?

    By the way, Koizumi Itsuki is currently living with his sister – in order to accommodate the sudden changes to the script, this ten year old fifth grader was brought in…… Sorry, she just had her birthday last month, so she’s now eleven. She’s now seen running around and tagging along with Itsuki and Mikuru. Now this is yet another enigmatic scene, just what was the meaning in introducing Itsuki’s sister anyway?

    Amidst all this romance, the battle between Mikuru and Yuki over Itsuki has now been moved into Itsuki’s school.

    Now who would’ve thought that Yuki would have transferred into Itsuki’s school? I have no idea how on Earth the director came up with such filler material. As far as the plot goes, Yuki has abandoned her black cloak having decided that it would be a better strategy for her to befriend Itsuki in order to get closer to him, while marginalizing Mikuru at the same time. She began her mental assault on Itsuki by placing love letters inside his shoe locker. She then followed that up by bringing two sets of boxed lunches, looking for Itsuki during lunch time, waiting for Itsuki by the school gate after school, and secretly keeping photos of Itsuki in her wallet. I think that’s more of an inspiration than a strategy.

    Needless to say, Mikuru also went on the defensive against Yuki’s maneuvers. She promptly transferred into Itsuki’s school as well. Wouldn’t it be better if they both transferred at the beginning of the story instead? Since Mikuru is here to protect Itsuki, it wouldn’t be odd for both of them to be in the same school. In fact, it would sound absolutely normal.

    Unbelievably, and without any explanation at all, Mikuru and Yuki did not fight each other with their mysterious beams and flashing wands. Seems like both of them have now switched their objective into seeing “who can capture Itsuki’s heart first.”

    The story was already quite confusing to begin with, and now it has developed into a two girl romantic harem story.

  12. Again… I woudn’t call myself a hater, but I’ll have to be honest, this chapter looks like pure garbage. o.O’ Ah, Akamatsu, you’re wasting chapters again… I can almost see this ending just like Negima, when the time comes, if it keeps going this way.

    • Seimei says:

      Hahaha! I must say, I TOTALLY agree with you on this chapter Ragna! I hoped a resumption of the plot, big revelations, the timing was perfect and the “100th chapter” was highly symbolic. Especially since I rather enjoyed the previous chapter, and even the 3 chapters of forwards because of small developments being undertaken. ^^

      But then I’m just bummed lool, all for here hahaha!

      Well, well, there to wait Chapter 101, now that we know who will be the alpha in the harem I imagine that we will FINALLY back again, advancing the plot and serious things ^^.

      • Yup. To me, this chapter was completely wasted because pretty much there wasn’t any development for anything at all. It was just a “Let’s praise Touta” chapter. I’m somewhat used to it by now, but this one was particularly bad because it did it in the most stupid way yet – suddenly all the girls (even Karin, for god’s sake) are desperately trying to get Touta like it’s the only thing that matters in the world, without an ounce of pride left.
        I mean, Ikkuu tells them a history that is pretty much an old legend and they have to spend the ENTIRE chapter trying to get on Touta’s back?

        Akamatsu pretty much made a lot of his female characters look pathetic, all for the sake of making Touta look like a pimp. Bad move. Bad writing.

        As for the previous chapter, I agree with you. It was promising, but then “boom”, all ruined on this one.

        • Seimei says:

          I do not quite agree. As I say although I find this arc so moin good as previous, earlier chapters had their interests. For example in the above we had a dévelloppement the relationship between Tota and Karin and their implicit agreement to fight together against the mage of the Beginning. Also the combat was more exciting that there parraissait. Not very impressive and explosive as I love, but if well done that I shouted “WHAT TH F ** k ?!”, in the proper sense. Yet I knew the result. But the spoils had very crudely, summary chapter, I was surprised, pleasantly. Astro also elsewhere. ^^

           In one chapter before we had the discovery of the event from the “Space Race” in parallel to the tournament mahora. Race in which participate Shinobu. And the introduction of a new character (Mizore, even if I do not like her lol ^^).

          All that to say that these chapters were more interestings that you might think ina a scenaristicly perspective and in term of background of the univer.

          However this one seems to be totally useless indeed. Which is a shame for the highly symbolic 100th chapter, but there we both agreements Ragna-san. ^^

          After were only the spoils. I found myself enjoying the three previous chapters as I say, while the spoils do not feel like I was giving. Maybe will be the case again. ^^

          In any case I wait (and hope) for the next chapters^^.

    • OverMaster says:

      Nobody calls themselves a hater. That’s just Internet lingo for ‘Harsh critic saying things I don’t want to hear/read about the series/movie/book I’m a fanboy about’.

      Also, wow, Mizore is even using the stupid school swimsuit cliche. Can this thing become any more stereotyped? And is there even any purpose to her existence beyond Forced Tsundere Loli Bait?

      Cool hovercraft/ship thing design, however. Very reminiscent of Toriyama Akira’s mechanical work.

      • >> “And is there even any purpose to her existence beyond Forced Tsundere Loli Bait?”

        How can you say that? Of course she has a lot of character traits that… Pfffff, who am I’m trying to fool, you pretty much summed up her character, really. Pretty clear since the chapter she originally appeared in… But what if we’re both mistaken!? Maybe she is actually a character with hidden depths and an awesome backstory who is just giving a false impr… Pfff hahaha, no, no, I’m delusional. She’s just loli bait, really.

        • Dargor says:

          She’d only be interesting in the context of Ayaka reminiscing about Asuna, but that’s really about it. The character itself, much like the rest of Holder sans Touta, is inconsequential.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I don’t mind chapters that are a bit of fun. I just wish other UQH characters would get proper development, including backstory.

      • I know, I know. One of the reasons I didn’t think this one was funny at all is that I usually enjoy this sort of chapter when reading a history that is a love comedy, in essence. It’s where I expect to see this sort of thing, from beginning to end. To me, UQ Holder is an action series and should remain that way. Funny moments can happen, but in a way that doesn’t derail other characters… It’s what I think, but then again, different people like different things. Case in point, I still remember how Negima ended – it’s only natural to be wary of chapters like this one popping more and more.
        They interrupt the pace of the story and really, don’t add up to anything at all.

  13. OverMaster says:

    So a new spoiler image was just posted in 4chan.

    SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER:

    So Karin went from a cool badass who didn’t give a shit about being seen naked by Touta to blushing like a little girl (as opposite to a hardened warrior who has been alive for centuries) and demurely covering herself because MUH TOUTA.

    Why the hell do Japanese authors like doing this so much? Is it some sort of sick female domination fantasy?

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Well, lets face it — in a shounen magazine, she has to be covered up. Were UQH seinen, Akamatsu-sensei could have gone another route.

      Why the hell do Japanese authors like doing this so much? Is it some sort of sick female domination fantasy?

      I don’t know about that. It comes off to me more as a literary device, showing that Karin is more aware of her womanhood in front of Touta and thus is attracted to him in spite of herself.

      • OverMaster says:

        That’s what creative camera angles and conveniently obstructing objects are for. True, Karin has short hair so she can’t go the Godiva route, but it’s still easy enough to have her naughty bits covered by things like Kirie’s watching head and the like. Anyway, even Negima showed bare breasts and butts with no problem, it was just clear crotch shots and nipples that were forbidden.

        Or, you know, you could have chosen not to strip her down in the first place!

        “Karin is more aware of her womanhood in front of Touta and thus is attracted to him in spite of herself.”

        That is fine for a young girl, but Karin is an adult, mature woman. I’m not buying it. Even Asuna grew less and less conscious about her nudity while she grew closer to Negi.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Or, you know, you could have chosen not to strip her down in the first place!

          Yeah, but this is Akamatsu-sensei, and one of his signatures on his work is getting the girls naked. ^_^;;;;;

          That is fine for a young girl, but Karin is an adult, mature woman. I’m not buying it. Even Asuna grew less and less conscious about her nudity while she grew closer to Negi.

          Asuna is a different story. Comparatively speaking, Setsuna is the better choice. Remember how she was in the Kyoko arc — she didn’t care about being seen naked, as evidenced when she attacked Negi in the onsen. Then with the combination of getting close to both Negi and Konoka, she suddenly became conscious of her womanhood and we know what happened later (she got defeated).

          I understand your point about Karin being an adult and such, but in this case, I say that after Eva opened Karin’s eyes to the possibility of hooking up with Touta romantically, the seeds where planted in her mind and then suddenly, having been literally lain bare before him, Karin becomes conscious of the situation. Tricks the mind plays on ya. 😉

    • Glad to see I’m not the only one that isn’t satisfied in the slightest with some serious character derailment happening here. Her winning (pfff, Karin winning, yeah) and losing aside, it feels EXTREMELY (and I say again… EX-freaking-TREMELY) forced that Karin, from one day to another, went from “Meh, there goes Trashouta.” to just another addition for the “Who Wins Touta Grand Prix” without any reason other than Akamatsu wanting to say “YEAH, LOOK, LOOK HOW GOOD TOUTA IS!He even gets all the girls just because he exists! :O Do you like him yet?”

      • Seimei says:

        Well, even if I never had anything against Tota (and I still have nothing against him, on the contrary, now that I begin to love him as a character ^^) I can not ‘blame you for having such reactions as you know, I’m not a fan harem hahahaha !!

        I didn’t like already that 15 schoolgirls on a class of 30 fall in love of the same boy (who was only 10 years, looool^^) pratiquements without any reasons (and I know also it was your case, if I remember correctly, Ragna-san ^^).

        So you doubt that I do not like this in UQ Holder not more but it has nothing to do with the fact that is Tota,. It would be Santa or Kuromaru I react in the same way. I follow UQ for the story and fighting, not for bathing scenes, fortunately they are rare lol.

        For cons, I find hilarious, that some who have defended the harem in Negima when I was doing the criticism, hue and cry about the harem of UQ, lool. I do not know what you think Ragna-san but personally I find that is the height of hypocrisy hahaha! But this is only my opinion.

        • If you see my reply to Astro here, you will see my opinion about the harem stuff. I didn’t like any of it in Negima either (and yes, I expect that many would disagree with me about this… However, it’s also because of all the harem stuff that we still don’t know jackshit about who Negi ended up with, IF. He ended up with anyone at all.) but enjoyed it in some other series. To me, whether I like it or not, It’s all about how it’s executed, when and where. See, one of my (many) problem(s) with harem stuff, is that the MC more often than not ends up with no one. And the usually baaaad execution of the scenes and poor jokes, that so many fans don’t even notice because “Hey, screw the plot, look at those curves!”.
          Seimei, I just want to say this: Sometimes, I enjoy reading Holder. Some other times, I just get extremely annoyed at some poor decisions Akamatsu makes. I’m not saying Holder is bad all the time. All I’m saying is that it could be BETTER if he put some more thought into things, and more life to other characters. The story focuses so much on Touta, that I start disliking him for the mere fact that he exists, as that takes all the screen time of everyone else.
          Hope you don’t mind, bro, and as I said to Astro, I have nothing against those who like him. Can even see where they’re coming from. My hate for Touta aside, I still have hopes for Holder. Despite my sarcasm, I still come here because of that fleeting hope (Oh, and because Astro is a nice dude. He won’t be living long, though. XD LOL).

          • Seimei says:

            Hahaha, I will repeat my friends but on this chapter I share your opinion. Again the only difference is that what anoying me is not that Tota is the center of a harem, but tha a character whatever who is he, be the center of a harem lol.
            You did not need you to spread 25 pages on why you hate Tota I know the reason, although I do not share it, but I understand you.

            But again about the harem I support you 100% bro^^. At the limit, even if I do not like it, I can forgive that more than in Negima ironically. because:
            1. The harem is anyway much better proportioned (the female cast is in proportions intellectually conceivable lol).
            2. It probably is not an editorial pressure (which if is the case, probably much less strong than that time Negima), so probably, Akamatsu will better manage the harem. Because yes, no less we can think about that, this is the first mini-arc “slice of life” and harem, we had in nearly 100 chapters. It is not comparable with the beginning of Negima ABSOLUTLY NOT. And even… after all fairy-tail were little arcs like that (although is not necessarily a good example to follow, I know lol).

            So yes, the ecchi get angry me but I forgive more easily than Negima. BUT again, forgive ecchi, do not mean to enjoy it, so I agree with your opinion on this topic ^^.

          • Seimei says:

            ps: Apart from that I am sincerely glad to see you here, I found a pity you when you get discouraged that we would soon begin interresting things (TOURNAMENT !!! ^^).

            At least it was what I thought before we suffered with this FUCKING mini-arc harem and slice of life lol.

            And yet, more seriously, apart from this one, the other chapters were quite interresting, although very few exciting of course). Go Courage my friend, if is it. This was the last ecchi chapter of the arc … at least I hope, by my calculations besides this one there is a chapter or two before the break. And I did not want to start a week without chapter with the image of a harem section in the head, I want to at least have a little revelation before the break! Pity !!!!

    I wouldn’t’ve of thought that colour pages are that hard to produce for Sensei since he went all digital, but his twiiter indicated otherwise, but 1/3 of his twitter is him ‘complaining’ of sorts about a weekly schedule.
    UQ Holder’s best hope is for it be in monthly magazine, in which Akamatsu-Sensei can show nipples galore and sleep, especially since most monthly’s are a 25 page weekly stretched into 43 pages.
    Which is blatantly obvious when chapters have 5 consistent full page double spread panels of character body’s.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Color pages are always the most difficult, even when going digital. It takes a great deal of time and effort to make color pages and do them right. I know this from knowing people who work in the American comic book and comic strip industry. 🙂

      UQ Holder probably should have been a monthly seinen title.

      • Seimei says:

        It depends on the length of your story. If you plan to do a story that spans 12-15 maximum volumes as Akame ga Kill, okay. If you plan to do a history of 40 volumes, so as Negima NO monthly format is NOT suitable. A moin that you want your readers to have 40 years when you have finished hahaha! ^^

        All that to say that it does not follow UQ dérenge me for 10 years, on the contrary, if I have my weekly chapter, even if it’s 50 volumes.

        By cons have to wait to be grandfather to read the end, it was moin cool. ^^ I know the monthly chapters are twice as long as the weekly chapters but still …. Yeh ok I will read anyway but well it would sooo000 long.^^

        And why should be a seinen UQ? Negima time, no one is full of shonen format, the time of love-hina not more … And if was to tell “the story would be more serious and profound,” two things:

        1. Negima became sérieu in Volume 22.
        2. Magi is a weekly shonen Yet the story is serious. ^^

        • Seimei says:

          I wanted to say “It not annoying me to follow UQ for 10 years”

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Ah! My Goddess was a monthly seinen title that went on for 48 volumes, from September 24, 1988 – April 25, 2014.

          • Seimei says:

            hahahaha ! Thank you! You confirm to me, that if UQ takes 40 volumes, a monthly publication is not a good idea lool^^.

            Especially since I repeat, Negima became serious and “deep” (it was not Death-Nothe level but you see where I’m coming) from the volume 22. As for the Magi case, for example, it’s a weekly title and a shonen, yet its story is becoming darker, bordering the seinen sometimes.

            And I do not even talk about Tokyo Ghoul which is a seinen and yet is published in the weekly young jump, a weekly magazine for seinens!
            So the rate of release means nothing for the quality of a story. We must stop with that false idea.
            Although, of course a shonen should not be TOO mature, hence the chapters ecchis like this, (which I would not complain of absence that being said ^^).
            As much I don’t think that a monthly publication is desirable. As much to ask the transfer of UQ Holder in a weekly seinen magazine might be a good idea, depending on what expect Akamatsu for the following volumes.
            If they do not account explore too dark themes the shonen is suitable. If he has really explore dark themes, the seinen would be better, it was already at the limit in the Santa arc, with Ijime and suicide, which was not displease me.

            But in any case, have the publishers to decide where the manga are published. If UQ becomes becomes too darf for a shonen, they will make the transfer to a seinen magazine themselves. They did this for several manga in the past after all.
            The manga artists them, write more or less what they want. Except when the editors become tyrans as at early of Negima and it end, of course.
            Or a stubborn idiot like the publisher of X/1999 of clamps, who, preventing them from finishing their manga because he found that the end was to dark. And he reffuses categorically the transfer of “X” to a seinen magazine, and this since 2001 !!!

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            hahahaha ! Thank you! You confirm to me, that if UQ takes 40 volumes, a monthly publication is not a good idea lool^^.

            But it did work for Ah! My Goddess. 😉

    I was quite curious about how she could cut the five fingers of both two her hands. how could she cut the fingers of the hand that held the knife.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Heh! That’s one of those old jokes about girls injuring their hands making something for the male they love.

  16. Mattcgw says:

    Well, if this stuff is titillating the Japanese fandom, then holder will quickly go to pot.

    • Seimei says:

      What? Honnestly I don’t understand the meaning of your sentence. This is the opposite, the Japanese fans, massively love the echi, so there is no reason why this chapter displease them, although, this chapter may displease me. I feel that the avencement resume of the plot and / or that we start the tournament!

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      This kind of stuff always gets the Japanese fandom going.

      • Seimei says:

        No it’s not what I mean. Mcgow was saidt “UQ will go to pot.” Or in the French language, this term refers to a test or even destruction. But if the Japanese love the harem there is no reason for the introduction of harm to sales of ecchi manga on the contrary, even if I am the first to hope that this interlude ends soon and that we can return on a more serious arc, like the previous, with the trip to Tota and his training at Dana

        • Mattcgw says:

          The complaint comes from grotesque pandering, more tired harem onsen antics, while demeaning strong characters such as Karin into some shy schoolgirl. It will probably end up with Mana acting the same. All because the Japanese Otaku like it.

          In the context weekly shounen magazine, it would over saturate the amount of ecchi content it has; since Mashima is spending entire chapters stripping female characters joining other female characters in a bath.
          This sort of content gets tedious and repetitive quite quickly.

          • Seimei says:

            But as I said to Astro this has NOTHING TO SEE with the rhythm of publication. I have shown that there is indeed weekly seinen magazine. So UQ may well become a seinen manga without becoming a monthly title, which not annoying me instead, because indeed, there would be fewer ecchi … whatever, if not certain, there are seinens ecchi I think.

            But I think the problem is principally made of kodansha. They may agree to let sensei write what he wanted (and was as better-^^), but alas I guess they owed anyway constrain sensei put A LITTLE harem .. . For otaku as you say ^^. And Akamatsu began his career with the harem, no matter what you or I can say, is a fact. I guess he can not be cut to 100% of his roots, is understandable. Is already very well that he would be cut to 80-90% I find hahaha.
            As I say to Ragna lower, I do not appreciate the harem of UQ but I forgive more than Negima. I adapt one could say
