Just woke up... on cell

I wonder if Cassandras awakening right over Audrey will bast her into bits or not...

In either case the moment we learn Audreys fate is when we first get a decent read on Cassandras power level.


As to Roxanne please don't tell me her technique uses the swords pommel just after she whinned about previously using the cross guard.

Now getting up to run downstairs to my pc for further commenting

hm. kinda unusual for you shieky to be be so sceptical (MEH CHAP) without even having the translation?! I opt for the opposite, all in all a very good chapter. yeah, cliffhanger suck, but nicely done and a many things that could have sucked thankfully did not happen
, well, it was a good chapter -- I think though, like for Newhope, alot of the spark may have been lost because of all the spoilers. Then again, it kinds of come with the territory

Don't tell me, let me guess....the Cat's name is "Rainbow Dash"

I say bring back clare so we leave the MEH chapters
If Clare was here Cassandra would be her new pet and both would get rid the other nš1s in a flash

OK... this chapter had so many panels of just text Yagi could have easily drawn more pages and never actually have done more work than usual... damn you SQ magazine give Yagi more allotted pages

31 was just not enough, I wanted to see how number 35 died beyond text which I still can't read

About what happened with the twins,imo its Rafty's doing but i could be wrong.

In this chapt there is a good amount of dialogue,so i'm sure it will be even more interesting when the eng version will come out.
Yeah... Yagi would most likely kill off the resurrected ones again *sigh*. Hm... Not that I am against Cassandra, but I just see too awkward if they brought back the deads and led them to live a normal life (This is not Dragon Ball.... ) It is sad though...

Roxanne's facial expressions crack me up everytime.

Edit: It looks like Raftela saved the twins against Roxanne's attacks. Roxanne seems pissed when she saw that Cassandra was no longer attempting to face-stab Audrey. That I am guessing let Raftela mind-hack Roxanne to save the twins from getting a face lift.

Surprisingly I loved this chapter, especially for the extra back story. The scene where Cssandra's wounds open up over Audrey was ridiculously funny.

Pretty bad chapter lots for wasted pages like the Miria fight which goes nowhere for 3/4 pages and lots of black panels over all a wasted/lazy chapter.

^Agreed... though I feel it is since Yagi is being forced to progress the plot fast and being kept to 31 pages. EDIT: Don't get me wrong not saying I disliked the chapter at all... just saying I felt the formula with which it was written too was more of the same and a problem with the series of late. Withholding my opinion of the chapter overall until I see the English scan, the plot line seems good, just not the way it was presented being the best way to do it IMHO.

What's even worse though, is that 2 of the next 5 chapters are almost guaranteed to be extra short too. The releases in January and March (the chapters written and drawn in December and February) are always short chapters due to less time until the chapter gets published.

Maybe those chapters will cover only a single plot line though to make up for it...

I disagree I do not think it was wasted overall. That is going way too far in my opinion. While I agree with the beginning comment, the remaining chapter gave the extra piece to the puzzle that we were missing and that is why Cassandra awoke. Furthermore, Yagi has improved on his faces/hair detail, especially if you compare it to his artwork earlier in the story. Therefore, I would not accuse Yagi of being some lazy bastard based on that.

Actually, a lot happened in this chapter compared to past chapters. (Especially if you compare it to the Witch's Maw arc, christ that was bad)We saw Cassandra making a new friend and getting over her disgust of showing her technique in front of others. She confronted Roxanne, which she did not appear able to do so before and went on a rampage. We really get to see just how evil Roxanne is this chapter. Sure, we knew she was pyscho, but she was ready to deface the twins with smile, she probably caused the death of the not-Cynthia claymore just to screw with Cassandra and she took pleasure in all of it. Aside from the Miria bit, I think we had a pretty good chapter in terms of fights and development of the characters.

edit: My only complaint is that Yagi did not give us the silhouette of Cassandra's form. That to me would be a good conclusion to a chapter.

I don't see the problem with the Miria bit either - her full fight would not have fit into one chap with the twins and the cassy flashback - not having Miria shown at all this chap would have been far more meh. This way, we do get a tentative indication how she fares with the release - atm things seem to be a solid draw (depending on lacking translation obviously) which is ok...
If there is anything I take offense at it is that Miria doesn't look more badass with her release...I expected some more badass looks and disfiguration from her in half-awakend state... Well, we shall see what comes at us after this chap...

Progress the plot ... "FAST" ?

You do realize that in nearly an entire year the plot has almost not progressed at all right? (since Mirira arrived at the org).

This is getting so tiresome, I am both dreading and getting excited for each monthly release now, the dreading part increasing with each release, and it seems it's just continuing on the same path.

Makes me wonder if Yagi even has any idea where he wants to go with the story, or if he is making stuff up monthly as he goes on without an end game in mind (or with one, but wanting to stretch it paper thin over the next two years).
