299 – demons demons demons

Filed under: Updates — CanonRap @ 2:46 pm

(Friday spoilers.) (Updated for full chapter… not that there’s much to add.)

Some sort of theoretical offspring between Hakurei Reimu and Nanaya Shiki?



Picking up from 298: Negi repeats his last line. He doesn’t expect Fate to believe him, so he’ll just have to beat the truth into him.

Of course, everyone else is still reeling from his claim. Even Chisame wonders if he’s just boasting…

“I’m not good at lies or jokes, Chisame-san.

Theoretically, it is almost complete. I’ve also completed the preparatory experimental studies.”

Off-screen prep time?

“Of course, it’s just an idea. It’ll be impossible if we can’t get everyone working together.

Yes; when we return to Mahora, perhaps… even iincho-san can be of help.”

Before he can elaborate, something big comes stomping down – some sort of giant demon (like Takane’s familiar, maybe?) appears behind Zazie. Uh, Poyo.

“Well, boy… are you serious -poyo?”

“Yes.”

“I can’t trust a suggestion coming from a child who has barely lived ten years -poyo.”

“I understand… but this is my answer. If my plan goes off smoothly, every problem can be solved!”

“No, that’s wrong. You can’t solve this problem. Your path is still one of bloodshed -poyo. As I thought… I can only stop you, with all my strength.”


The rest of Ala Alba starts waking up from Kosmo Entelekheia – since Negi’s escape had “loosened the bindings” – and Zazie’s attack (which blows clean through the Palace walls, by the way) is blocked by Setsuna and Kaede.

“So everyone’s awake now -poyo. However, I cannot allow you all to put a stop in the plan.

I will see you all off -poyo. This time, to where you can truly never return from, the true ‘Kosmo Entelekheia’.”

“I’ll take care of Poyo Rainyday-san! Everyone else, use this chance to head for the upper sections and focus on the rescue!”

(Chiu: Is it okay to use Poyo as her name? Really?)

“No, Negi-sensei, you’re the leader, and our greatest strength. Leave this to me, and lead everyone else upwards.”

“That’s no good, Captain! Poyo-san’s strength is still unknown! It’s possible that she’s an even stronger enemy than Fate and his group! I should be here -”

“That’s exactly why you must preserve your strength. Trust me, boy.”


Mana triggers a number of Chao-invented bounding ‘Gravity Mines’ set around Zazie, increasing the gravity 50x for an instant, then firing a single shot to crush Zazie and… whatever that is behind her through the ground and into the bottomless void below. Mana tells Negi to save his friends and settle things with his rival, then jumps down gun-first after her (Gandalf-style?)

“Not bad -poyo… Shrine maiden sniper, Tatsumiya Mana! (Wow, I never realised how ridiculous that was.)

However!

You were convinced -poyo. The future which the boy advances towards, that is the future of Chao Lingshen! For a while, you had wagered on Chao’s ideal – are you all right with that -poyo?”

“That’s right… I had. But… still, now I feel like betting on Negi-sensei.”

Because of the thick amount of mana in the ruins, Mana fires Chao’s BCTL’s from the Mahora Festival.

“But, that’s not all I’ve got.

It’s been five years since I’ve done a full release… but that’s no deficiency against an opponent like this.

“That demon eye… and that form… so you’re…”

Yeah. I’m half-demon.



I guess it’s obvious that there’s more to Mana than just… um, shrine maiden sniper with a demon eye, but I didn’t expect for her to be an actual demon, if only a half-blood.

Spoilers themselves are a bit unclear this time (lots of illegible text) so I guess it’s time to wait for the full chapter.

  1. Thanks for the summary.

    Isn’t the dialogue’s on page 08 readable (7th one in the spoiler pics). I am really interested in what Mana & Kaede are talking about after waking up. Especially what Mana asks to Setsuna & Ku Fei which surprises them.

    So till now we had Kotaro a Half-Dog/Wolf, Setsuna a Half-Bird, and now Mana a Half-Demon. Till now we have seen the full release form of Kotaru & Mana. The only one left is Setsuna to reveal her full form. Wonder when we would see that.

  2. “(Seems to be a missing page here? In any case, everyone starts waking up from Kosmo Entelekheia.)”

    Yeah, there was one page that in the course of being circulated on the internet ended up only being a thumbnail, so that page didn’t get reposted.

    “Isn’t the dialogue’s on page 08 readable (7th one in the spoiler pics). I am really interested in what Mana & Kaede are talking about after waking up. Especially what Mana asks to Setsuna & Ku Fei which surprises them.”

    I can’t say for sure, but I think she was asking them why their faces were red.

  3. So is Mana’s Japanese parent the demon, or is it her parent from Puerto Rica? >_>

    (now taking bets on her stated backstory being false)

  4. Puerto Rico, coño, si van a deletrear el nombre de mi pais, haganlo bien.

    And no, my country’s current demons are those of the Christian religion, unless KA ACTUALLY studied about the Taiyan culture (previous inhabitants of Puerto Rico, or Boriquen at that time, before Spain fucked them up) If that is the case, then Mana, if a demon by puertorican descent, has to be something related to either lizards or birds, those were the most higher tier of deities (probably the closest thing you could have to a culture based on Phoenixes and Dragons). Until then, I believe she is a demon by Japanese descent.

  5. Sorry for double post, but for those who want to look for info about the culture, look for “Tainos”, that was the original name.

  6. Puerto Rico, coño, si van a deletrear el nombre de mi pais, haganlo bien.

    if a demon by puertorican descent

    >______________>

    Honestly, I can’t think of anything in her appearance released that really sticks to any form of ancient mythology from either side of the Pacific Ocean, unless you think of DBZ as a form of it :p
