Still, that's the news ... To think Last Order would reflect about her body. That 10 years old brat has been tainted by the others sisters and being pettanko must be written in the DNA.

Which is why Worst doesn't seem to care: she has bits of Mugino in her, plus she is, um...

thank you for the translations. One Q, is Misaka Worst the only one from the 3rd Production Plan? Are there anymore Misaka Worsts?

Quite frankly, I find the idea of introducing Islamic magicians contradictory. In modern day Islam, practicing magic and other forms of witchcraft is forbidden in the religion. Islam might be more into the science side, than magic side...

Perhaps, the author has some other plans for introducing the Islamic sect, they were briefly mentioned in volume 11 by Biaggio I think. He only mentioned that their numbers were steadily increasing, but there wasn't any mention whether they were magic users or not. The author could very well not mention Islam at all.

On NT: I really hope that in the future novels we get to see some interaction between Misaka Mikoto, Misaka 10032, Misaka WORST, and maybe LO. That would be quite a sight to see with Touma and Accel watching from the sidelines...

I agree though that Misaka WORST and Accel's interactions are the best.


P.S. Js06! Thank you! Those are some speedy accurate translations. You too, Teh Ping.

Touma:The real one and the one with the necklace and goggles are mine.
Accelerator:Yeah? I got that little loli brat and the big boobed one (sneer)
Touma: Fu-kodah!
Accelerator:and you cant have her
TOuma:i'll break that illusion!

I've never heard of Islam being used before. The only time I get that impression is when the magicians talk about the Angels being puppets and having no free will of their own, this was the Muslim's view on God's Angels as well.

Aside from this one time, Someone said something about Muslim during the Italian arc? I never seen that part myself...

Basically there isn't one solid piece of information regarding Islam.

Technically you're not allow to practice magic as a Christian either but there it is.

Mikoto and WORST interaction are an goldmine that will be tapped in the next NT methinks.

Imagine Mikoto seeing Touma, and along side him Accelerator with WORST and Last Order. An official confrontation between Mikoto and Accelerator is so bound to happen down the line, and having WORST trolling during it might be the thing that's needed to get those two tsunderes on decent footing. Accel and Mikoto ganging up on WORST with all their tsundere power would make me awaken in my pants.

i dont think so. Mikoto hasn't seen accelerator since the SISTERS arc and i dont know if its that easy to forgive him. Touma sees that the clones forgive so he lets it go. Granted an interaction will be good but it has to make sense.

Mikoto: can my boobs be like hers?
Worst:
Spoiler for Worsts Reaction:






makes you wonder. Whos are bigger? Worst or Misaka Misuzu?

Or in that case whose are the biggest in the series?

Chapter 3, part 1 out

Hanzou's pretty resourceful, the intelligence of the characters are really something. Nice plan by Hamazura though,

Accel should thank Acqua and Touma one-hundred times after they spared him from a world of pain
