UQ Holder 172 Delayed

UQ Holder 172 Delayed

Hey gang!

This is actually old news, but I’ve been so busy of late, I missed this news drop back on April 14, 2020. Basically, Bessatsu Shounen Magazine , the magazine in which the monthly UQ Holder is published, was forced to be delayed due to the insanity going on in the world. So while I was looking for spoilers (and getting flung into some “lovely girl Kuroumaru” hentai as a result of someone flooding the message board I look for spoilers in 😅), I was actually wasting my time.

We now have official word that the June 2020 issue of Bessatsu Shounen Magazine will be a June/July release and will come out on June 9, 2020.

As such, we can expect to see UQ Holder 172 show up at this time. While I can’t say for sure, it is possible that it could be a bigger chapter. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

UQ Holder Chapter 169

Anyway, I’ll keep my eyes open for spoilers come first of June while trying to steer clear of any Kuroumaru hentai. 😂

    You know… it just dawned on me…

    Negi was strong because using his own powers he perfected Magia Erebea and made it his own skill in his own rights.

    Touta being unable to use magic and had to find a way to pull power directly from the source is what makes his Magia Erebia unique.

    Now that the Life Maker and Negi are fused… if Touta reveals his trump card, would Ialda-Negi copy Touta or work out a counter strategy? I mean Ialda has the perfect vessel now, an immortal vessel with an immortal spirit that can hop bodies…

    I have a feeling unless Touta can drain up the entire source of magic from Venus, Ialda-Negi is going to be impossible to beat with Negi drawing power from Venus and Ialda drawing it from the asteroid…

    Eva is probs going to try Negi’s final spell? Or Touta learns how to use the White of Mars and Magic Cancels the connection.

      You may be onto something here. Drain the well, so to speak.

      Eva is probs going to try Negi’s final spell? Or Touta learns how to use the White of Mars and Magic Cancels the connection.

      All very plausible and possible to be sure.

        Yeah I was checking for the new chapter, remembered what happened previously and then it just sorta clicked…

        Ialda-Negi was so strong even Eva and Fate couldn’t deal/react to his moves.

        Touta has gotten stronger but I think he is only strong enough to deal with the minions… not to mention the minions are way to ridiculously strong in comparison to Ialda-Nagi and Fate’s team.

        Rakan, Ku;Nel, Yue and Nodoka as well as Asuna being by his side now.

        Immortality is definitely a trump card in the last match… but now the final boss has a Immortal Body that draws from the same Black of Venus source as Touta and Eva. Coupled with Ialda’s own source, she is going to be impossible to beat without the Magic Cancel hack…

        Will be interesting to see where this goes, but it seems even Kuromaru’s clan and immortal hunters etc are all under the same conclusion. Devising counter strategy to defeat not a body hopper but a body hopper with an immortal body.

        Ialda only hops bodies if her vessel dies, but if her body is immortal, then she would be unbeatable… hmmm I dunno… feels like Negi created a lot of self made problems.

          I tend to agree.

          Also, sorry for the delayed response. I didn’t even realize I had a comment. 😅😅

    I had this thought the other day

    In UQ holder volume 15 during the flash back of the fight between Ialda and Negi where Nagi miraculously revived when it was considered to be impossible and Fate sort of hinted at the fact that Ialda had something to do with it …

    her power is derived from empathy correct? because of how much Negi cared for his father perhaps because of his emotions after defeating him and realizing he was finally about to lose him forever actually compelled the mage of the beginning to help relieve him of that tragedy?

    Its a long shot theory, but I was thinking this could somewhat come into play during the final battle of Holder and this time it would involve Evangeline’s feelings as she’s been a cornerstone of Holder.

    The MotB has shown her special attention; even talked about how Eva would never be happy

    just seems like some subtle foreshadowing going on

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      It is a long shot theory, but why not? To be honest, at this point, I don’t have a clue. I hope Akamatsu-sensei gives us a sensible way to save Negi without killing him. And thus we’d know how Nagi was saved in the other timeline.

    End of may is fast coming,I hope the delay doesn’t cause the premature end of the manga. This isn’t great, you’d think something that done in studio in likely your house would not need a lot worries about getting COVID19. Hopefully the printing house can get rolling again.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I don’t think it will be the end of the manga. Its just the magazine didn’t go to press last month. As far as I know, it should be OK and we’ll get the next chapter at the regular time. Its just a matter of whether or not we’ll get a longer chapter.
