That was for like a promotion tour or something.
It should've been a big hint but often VA's are in drama CD and such way before an anime adaptation is anounced.

It's been a while..

chapter 142 and it confirms what some of us has suspected all along

we're in filler filler land and they're cycling through all the characters

This is probably intended to be a calm before the storm / character building period before the final battle

The problem is I can't feel any real tension to these filler mini arcs

I think the author knows that too, but he probably has a clear time table in contract and he knows when this series will end

Can we have a Kyokotsu filler at least?

Looks to me like he is taking a break and planning the plot of the next arc (which seems to be about Hyakku Monogatari: both Tsurara arc and Toryanse arc hinted at them and the current XX Village Arc is an Urban Legend as well and thus probably also connected to Hyakku Monogatari).

Also, the format fits Hyakku Monogatari which literally means "100 Tales" (lets hope that does not mean 100 mini arcs XD)

A series in Shounen Jump ends when either:

1. The ratings and Tankobon sales are bad and the mangaka is forced to end it - not gonna happen because the sales are going well and we wouldn't have mini-arcs now if the Editorial Department told him that he must end it soon

2. The manga was being published for a long time and both Editors and the Mangaka agree that continuing would be stretching the story - Nura is still too young, we have at least two major villains that need to be defeated and there is still a lot of Japanese Folklore that can be used

In summary: I doubt even mangaka knows when he will be allowed to end it.

I doubt it'll be the last battle, but yeah you're right about the first part.

Ch 138's Rikuo x Tsurara was so cute. Even the teacher thinks they're together.

Anyway, I marathon'd the manga a bit and, lo and behold, what is Griffith doing in Japan claiming to rule all youkai and stuff?

Anyone still here?

Well, what I thought would be a series of filler arcs is turning into a new hyakkumonogatari clan arc

so to whoever guessed this right, give yourself a cookie

The last few weeks have been quite boring until the end of the latest chapter, getting one of Rikuo's friends involved like that...

Yeah, I really like Rikuo's female friend's new look. Quite creepy. Where the heck did Kurotabou go? :P

Hmmm, I wonder if she's already dead. Would make the manga go in a lot darker direction with the recent arc.
