There will be a disclaimer that states that no real Lolis were abused in this show.

Part 3 is out.

Kumokawa really is the classic "Boring~ Bah~" type of underachiever.

...And damn, we know why that Director hired her. Free peep show.

Awakin has found a soulmate.

But what about the mental image and the damage that it had already cause !

Eh? Even the impenetrable Femme Fatale Kumokawa Seria has her vulnerable moments? I would never had guess...

That last part translates to "Hamazura didn't put much thought into it, and said that to no one in particular."

Nothing about 'repeating same thing', So the question now would be who's right?
I'll write the original paragraph here. I hope it's not against the rules.

Spoiler:


I think it's Hamazura who said the last line, and Chaos was right about

Yes, Shiage said that.

Anyway, finished reading the volume.

90% of the book is Birdway giving explanation. Little thing happened. The volume is to give the heroes some time to think about the world around them and make decisions.

Some random notes:

Even if it is, there's absolutely nobody around to enforce it.

It's total anarchy here !

Hmm, Kumokawa's section reveals a lot to be desired in knowing. Particularly of what she really thinks of Kamijou Touma not as "the underclassman who possesses a unique power known as the Imagine Breaker, a phenomenon that has yet to be understood" but as an individual, an underclassman she sees on a day-to-day basis in school. The normal Kamijou Touma.

... A yet to be revealed flag? For a character with so much charisma or so I think, to have Touma's disappearance make her go into a slump like that is quite something.

“Kumokawa Seria, the Super JK Tactician bossed around by the Board of Directors is here!! I’ll dull the judgment of any pure boy☆!”

After nailing it all perfectly, Kumokawa’s shoulders drooped and she wordlessly fell back down onto the sofa.

“…I can’t do it. It just feels so empty. I’m not that #5, so I can’t do things like that...
... Wow, two reference to Shokuhou Misaki in one volume? I'm wondering if she'll show up next volume...

And as for the rest of Ch2 Pt3, I'm guessing Touma raised another flag >.> One that I didn't think he'd be capable of pulling it off.

Did the Kami-yan disease mutate and got a lot more potent?

Damn, I was just about to say that #5 is being name dropped alot.

Well, on the Seria front, it seems to me that she and the BoD she works with are good people, but there are limits to what they can do. Touma ignores those limits and saves people that Seria had thought lost forever, and she respects him for that.

Having him appear to die was probably a blow to her because she could do nothing to prevent his death. He was outside her power, and served as a cold reminder that she can't save everyone.

Of course, there is also romantic subsext in that, but her depression does not = her liking Touma.

Accelerator still doesn't meet Misaka? I am super disappointed. Hopefully the next one will do it. Urgh.

Flere821: It just gets more potent... Each passing volume.

Ashaman: Che... A man can't dream can he? Also next time I need a Just Kidding! signpost.

Well, the prospect of seeing Touma triggering flags here and there is just too amusing for me I won't mind if there'll be a spin-off based on that alone.

It's possible that there might be even more references to #5 too becuase the volume still has 4 chapters to be translated and the epilogue. Although I agree with you, all these references seem to foreshadow Shokuhou Misaki appearing soon. *Plays dramatic music*

Kumokawa's 'depression' mirrors alot of character's own internal turmoil- The ability to wield great power, but completely useless when it matters the most. As oppose to Kamijou who wields a weak power, but is always reliable when it matters the most.

Kamachi really likes to drive home this point.

Mah, if it's something as simple as gaining girl's respect and admiration, it's already at that level a long time ago.

What surprised me is that human side of Seria, I honestly thought Kamachi was going to play her as another cold manipulative character that isn't touched by anything.

Sigh, yet nothing on the number 6...

Hmmm, relative to the entire cast, there isn't really a noticable loli population, it's just that this volume is a cluster-fest for every character that even remotely mattered once.... As well as introducing other characters into the main story.

Oh, I'm wishing for it too. But I'm just pointing out that its not black and white.

Touma raised her flag, its just that it might not be a Lovers flag.
