I guess "Styles" are things that have been passed down throughout the Branch families, while "Skills" are something a person is born with or given to them by someone like Ajimu or Hanten.

This reveal just confirms what Zenkichi said about Medaka from the very beginning of the series: she's so smart she loops back into stupid.

Maybe the current trial is a week-long endurance contest, and Medaka is going through it right now.

Zenkichi did tell the new General Secretary that all six members of Medaka's group share a key weakness that could be used to trap them all.

Wow that was kind of graphic. Zenkichi being cut to pieces, an opponent who stabs swords into herself, and a victory through biting a person's collarbone? Yeesh.

Yeah, pretty much. That's understating just how zany this series gets, especially past chapter 100 or so.

Medaka would probably invite Zenkichi along for this reason. Fighting for herself wouldn't actually mean anything if fate/the plot/whatever just handed it to her on a silver platter.

Another way Zenkichi could get involved would be if one of the subfamilies forced him to use "Devil-style" against Medaka again to rob her of her plot-driven advantages. Though knowing Medaka, she...

Perhaps it was the moment she realized Zenkichi trusted her despite her "betrayal" that caused her epiphany regarding her feelings for him. It's funny how sometimes trust can change a person.

If he's anything like Hansode, trusting him isn't a very good idea. OTOH, maybe Ajimu is to him what Zenkichi is to Hansode; the one person he would never betray.

So every "meta" thing Ajimu spouted was nothing but a wholesale delusion born out of everything being too easy for her.

I dunno. Negima just pulled off a similarly abrupt ending, though it did give a sense of closure.

Is anyone else really looking forward to the chapter that finally explains Ajimu's motivations?
