To be honest, I really believe a defeat would be good character development for Nagi. Even though she's been putting a serious effort on this manga, she really pales in comparison to all of what Luca has had to do. Learning that just because you put some effort doesn't mean you'll achieve a particular goal (or, at least, not immediately) would be a good lesson - especially for her, who will probably enter the business world, one day.

But, anyway, I just remembered Yozora Hōsen. I wonder what happened to her. It's been quite a while since the last time we saw her, and she seems to be involved in the story's "plot" this time around.

I really think she was just overworked and exhausted. She's working to make ends meet while forcing herself to put time in to her hobby. Luca missed meeting Nagi several times because of how busy she was. I don't think she has that much free time.

@Mentar / Shadow

Yeah, I thought of the same thing and posted about it over on MT, where we also discuss this, albeit not so much in number as here.

Anyways, Mentar, you pointed at an interesting fact.

Hina: debt, abandoned by parents - check
Hayate: debt, abandoned by parents - check
Luca: debt, abandoned by parents - check

This isn't a coincidence, is it? Although Hina isn't nearly as miserable as the other two, she still went through a lot in the past.

Hmm... maybe Luca got overwhelmed by all the misery and bad luck that was accumulated in her room when those two came by? Ahahahaha...


Btw, guys, this is the spoiler thread. By that definition it's already a spoiler if you read anything posted here, so why are you using spoiler tags?

...
...

Wait, never mind. I did the same thing yesterday on MF.

It's not a heart attack, it's probably an ulcer.

Either that or Hata forgot which side of the chest the heart is on (well, technically it's in the middle, but it sort of leans to one side).

I feel tempted to go back through this thread and count how many theories there are about what leads up to that flashforward. There must be like twenty now.

Nagi running in the stairs of a high rise while shouting "Luca no baka". Or something like that, at the very beginning of this whole greater arc (just after the conclusion of the Golden Week arc).

EDIT: found it, it's the first color page of chapter 268. Date is Sunday June 12th, place is on the top of Sunshine Go in Ikebukuro.

Hmm... maybe Luca died? Maybe that's why Nagi is mad, or more like sad, disappointed, all sorts of mixed feelings? They promised that they would become rivals, but she died at the last moment. Mhmm.... it's possible.

We'll know if this theory is any sound after we find out if she only fainted, or if she has some sort of illness.

There's a bit more to it then that, (The last line is roughly "The little lady screams...and roars") but keep in mind Hata drew it way back when Golden Week had just ended. We didn't know who Luca was, what building Nagi was running up, or anything about her moving into a new mansion or trying to become a doujinshi artist, ect ect...It was a lot more interesting a year and a half ago then it is now, though we still don't know what exactly gets Nagi so upset/determined.

As for the actual chapter...

I really doubt Luca is going to actually die, but I could see her suddenly falling into poor health at a bad time. She's been pushing herself through injuries, poor nutrition, overwork, stress and who knows what else for a long time now.

Honestly I kind of suspect this is a prelude of Luca being forced to move in with Nagi "for her own good" more then anything else.

Also a prelude to the whole stupid cross-dressing thing being stretched out even further because "she's too fragile to handle the truth right now."

@mad

That would be awesome. I want to see them living together. xDD

@Dor

Naw, that's cool. It's just Hayate being himself. He's being overly polite, always assuming for the worst, etc...

But there's one thing that does bother me. He's not suffering anymore while cross dressing. Maybe he's gotten used to it?

That's no fun!

This is HnG, so I highly doubt anything like that would happen.
Also, if something similar to that were to happen, I'm sure Hayate would have a reaction. He's much closer to Luca than Nagi is.

You forgot to consider that maybe she died a while before the competition, and Hayate just couldn't break the news to her, not to discourage her from finishing her manga, etc...

Hey, it's a possibility. She did faint in this chapter. We won't know what's wrong with her until *maybe* next week.

I know that it would be a bad comparison, but you could try and compare it to One Piece. Nobody dies in One Piece, right? Then suddenly, bam! People dying left and right. Lolz...

We'll see... I just hope that I'm wrong.

One person has died in this manga. Before it started. They won't even kill off the freaking robot or wild animal "antagonists of the week".

M'yeah... and killing off a new character would be also a very weird, if not a stupid choice.

I guess that it's just as we initially assumed, that Nagi lost the competition.

Luca doesn't die, she just gets all worked up and tries to commit suicide by jumping from the top of that building. Nagi runs up to try and talk her out of it.

Ahahahaha! Hata wouldn't dare do something THAT depressing. Besides, that would totally send out the wrong message. Some kid might think that suicide is cool. Lolz...

Wait...

Yakuza gangsters that are aiming for your organs.

Never mind.
