I won’t touch on any of the ‘dreaaaaaaams’ stuff because it’s all in dorky, sappy fun.
1. As I mentioned elsewhere, it doesn’t seem like the whole immortal-invulnerable thing actually matters that much, at least not in this chapter. Both the synopsis and dialogue refers to Touta having both. Possibly, it’s because ‘invulnerability’ is a sort of upgrade to ‘immortality’, ie:
不老不死 – ageless and deathless – ‘immortality’ (won’t age or die until killed)
↓ upgrades to ↓
不死身 – undying – ‘invulnerability’ (can’t age and can’t die even if killed)
Just a theory, of course.
2. Personally, I don’t think Eva has been de-fanged too much. What was in the last chapter was an ambush in who-knows-how-long and in this chapter, she still blows Touta away using just her shield. Remember that having a shield deployed 24-7 is considered ‘normal’ for magic-users … Eva is sending Touta flying basically by sneezing at him.
In any case, Eva/Yuki offered to teach him Shundou but he didn’t really care. Let’s see how many chapters it’ll take before it turns relevant again.
Also, yes, Eva is confirmed to be using age-deceiving pills to turn into ‘Yuki’.
3. The new girl is Yuuki Shinobu. I don’t recall ever seeing that last name before in an Akamatsu work … maybe someone who’s read AI Love You or Itsudatte can confirm?
It’s also pretty funny how Shinobu’s gender was never once mentioned in the entire chapter. I don’t doubt that she’s a girl, but still.
4. The idea of a ‘Solar Olympics’ (and especially a ‘Solar System Grand Prix’) is pretty incredible to me, seeing as it’s been 80 years at most since the beginning of space development and possibly only 60 years since the tower was opened to the public. Then again, this is a world where even country bumpkins can fix hover bikes.
