UQ HOLDER Chapter 103 SPOILERS

The UQ Holder Chapter 103 goodness begins. This looks to be the chapter’s spoilers. ^_^

守りたい?守られたい?

変態影使いにやられ闇に封じられかけた九龍は
初心を思い出し、男・九郎丸に戻って刀太を救い出す

自分に女も男もない、と吹っ切れた……はずが
刀太「しかし九龍さんまた来ねーかな 美人だったよなー」

■九郎丸の苦悩、続行中

Assuming we aren’t being trolled here (I’m told the recent arrests in Japan caused fake spoilers for other manga series to show up), looks like the fight ends really quickly and Kuroumaru continues to fret. That being said, I’ll wait for one of our gracious folks to provide a translation before going further. ^_^

Update #1: A translation from DerGilga. ^_^

One of the only times Super Touta can’t do jack is just so Kuroumaru switches. And just how does hair that has been dyed blonde go black on switching genders? 😉

  2. Kiboujin says:

    Darn, I knew Kurou’s path toward becoming female wouldn’t be this straight forward and easy. I still have faith it will happen after Kurou does some soul searching.

  3. jeffers says:

    DAMN I DONT WANT MALE KUROUMARU:(

    • Setsuyume Edenfault says:

      There, there, it’s okay… remember, this is a work by Ken Akamatsu, she will definitely by female later on 😉

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        Heh!heh! Yeah, that’s probably true.

      • sanchi says:

        aww , not again, this female or male Kuro trouble is getting too drawn out. Kuro needs a shot of self confidence to be and fight as a female. Yes, please, Kuro is definitely better as a female, and behaves like one already. Keep her female like a tom-boy, and please, please, move the story forward a bit faster, what-ever the story is at this point.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          I’ve decided that the male/female Kuroumaru thing will go on until the manga is almost over. I hope I’m wrong.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Hear, hear!

  4. NML says:

    I’m disappointed by how it’s handled but I’m not surprised.

    Kuro still has a year until they make their decision and it’s clear they’ll change their mind back and forth until then.

    It probably won’t happen since this is a shonen manga but I think it would be an interesting move if Touta revealed that he doesn’t take gender into account when it comes to being attracted to someone.

    • NML says:

      Although it could be similar to Setsuna where it’s all in his head.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      This whole thing is basically the latest take on the joke of Kuroumaru’s gender. 🙁

      • NML says:

        Kuro’s gender(or, rather, lack thereof) has been the butt of a lot of jokes but I think it makes sense that Kuro is going to fluctuate between male and female. It’s a big decision and it’s realistic for a teenager to put off a massive decision for as long as possible.

        Since Akamatsu had Kuroumaru mention that his tribe choose their gender during a ceremony on their 16th birthday, I think we’re going to see that ceremony, and hopefully it’ll happen at Kuro’s village.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          The only problem with that theory is that Kuroumaru is an outcast of the tribe. 🙁 I do want to see more about Kuroumaru’s tribe and customs.

          • NML says:

            I’m assuming that will get resolved. We know Kuro was experimented on so I’m hoping we confront whoever did that. Maybe Kuro will end up saving his village from some threat or something and gain their trust. Whoever experimented on him is presumably a villain.

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I figure it will take a very long time to get resolved.

  5. Mattcgw says:

    Did kuromaru become a Toei transgender Sensei!
    I’ll take this as a sailor mmoon homage and not be outraged.

  6. Fufufu.

    I’m fine with Kuroumaru becoming a bro or a girl, hes awesome either way.

    But I’d rather him become Touta’s bro since that was his along his original intent after their fight in the beginning of the series. Touta needs a decent foil in this series and I feel like it should be Kuroumaru, Santa just doesn’t seem up to par for the job to me.

    The way I see it, after becoming friend’s with Touta Kuroumaru’s goal was to try and be his equal but he didn’t really know how to express it. Since most of the characters seem to have mistaken his intentions, all hes been told was to become a girl and reach out to him as a SO. Since people kept telling him he looked like a girl in love he eventually started to believe it, but you can tell hes still confused about what he really wants from time to time.

    I hope that didn’t come off as a rant.

  7. Clyde says:

    Dang it, but everything isn’t lost yet: as long as Kurou isn’t 16, (s)he can still change her/his mind.

  8. May says:

    *Eyeroll* I hope it was actually due to Kuroumaru not being used to a female body considering how powerful women can be in this manga universe.

    Hm, so girl-Kuro made an impression on Touta? That’s pretty adorable. Although I do wish Kuroumaru will eventually find another compelling reason to be a particular gender that doesn’t revolve around Touta or what other people say.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Although I do wish Kuroumaru will eventually find another compelling reason to be a particular gender that doesn’t revolve around Touta or what other people say.

      Yeah, I agree here.

  9. Alliriyan says:

    There may be some nuance in Kuroumaru reverting back to a neuter identity – oh but wait this is Akamatsu what is nuance?

    I don’t mind if it takes a few attempts to finally decide – they are naturally hesitant and cautious anyway. I do hope the weakness is down to body changes and not to femininity.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      😆

      Ditto.

  10. NT says:

    It seems like the closer the date of the ceremony comes for Kuro to choose, the more he will start going between genders.
    And aren’t we pretty close? I keep hearing a year even though it’s been eight months in the manga already? Or did I somehow get very lost?

    • NML says:

      People are saying there’s a year to go because of the 8 month timeskip.

      Before that it was 2 years.

    • NML says:

      To go into more detail.

      Kuro was born in 2072. The series began in 2086, and taking into account the passage of time in the series we’re in 2087.

      So Kuro is 15 and has a year(roughly) until he becomes permanently male or female.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        While I’ve no doubt that Akamatsu-sensei will drag this out forever, do we know what month Kuroumaru was born? If Kuroumaru was born at the end of 2072, then that would make a big difference on the time left and could explain why the change has already begun.

        • NML says:

          We haven’t gotten anything more specific than 2072.

          I feel like if we ever go to Kuro’s village then Akamatsu would have it coincide with his birthday. Since Kuro is from mars then I assume we won’t go to mars until after tournament since you use the space elevator to get there now and Touta and co. won’t reach the top until the tournament finals.

          And the tournament is being held in 2088 so it makes sense.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I think nearly a year has passed. However, the presumption is that there’s a full year left based on the year of Kuroumaru’s birth. I don’t recall a month/day being stated and since Kuroumaru is starting to change, I think it is months of time left at best. But Kuroumaru is immortal so who knows what the experiments did to her.

  12. mattcgw says:

    I’m going to indulged a personal theory of mine, Akamatsu-Sensei is the leaker for all spoilers and or pictures!

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Heh! Well, the pictures wouldn’t be from him since he’d have access to the originals and wouldn’t need to scan/take a picture of manga pages. 😉

  13. OverMaster says:

    Chao continues being a terrible character who comes and goes at random just to provide convenient setups for events. Someone just kill the creep already.

    Can’t we get at least the other Powerful Hand guys? They were far better characters than him, but he’s the one who keeps coming again and once again!

  14. Krono says:

    The 8 month time skip, plus 2 months underground at the start before joining UQ Holder, plus miscellaneous passage of time guarding the orphanage, checking out Mahora, doing stuff around the inn, etc. So all told, about a year should have passed since Touta and Kuromaru met.

  15. Rob. C. says:

    Sigh, i don’t like this going back and forth with genders. Kuroumaru is ultimately going be loser on the “I want to be with Touta” thing, because i suspect Touta like ladies. So he’ll end up being silent admirer while still being his “Brother” in arms.

  16. sanchi says:

    I wish we could see more of Kurōmaru’s fighting style. Male and female styles are very different, so it would be nice to see some femme fighting by Kurōmaru as a female, and in a fighting outfit of her own – or it might be the same trench coat outfit. I also didn’t like Kurōmaru shown very weak as a female and all of sudden much stronger as a male to save Tōta. I know Tōta is the main character and focused on his development, but it would be nice seeing Kurōmaru get more decisive and defeat a bad guy on his own, and using his own technique and abilities, or discovering any new abilities as a female that wasn’t there as a male.

    (*sigh*) In reality, I don’t think this will happen.

    All the hints, chest getting bigger and clothes getting tighter on the chest, unable to sleep in the same room as a guy – leading to a separate room, romantic feelings for a guy…. just suddenly disappears like turning a light switch on and off, or from blonde back to brunette? Now we are going to see his male side? I would rather see Kurōmaru as a female and move on with her life and to see her develop into her own gender specific style, technique, and femme personality.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I wish we could see more of Kurōmaru’s fighting style.

      So do I.

      I would rather see Kurōmaru as a female and move on with her life and to see her develop into her own gender specific style, technique, and femme personality.

      I’m with you all the way!
