She has extremely strong arms, since she didn't require any hospitalization after catching a human falling in the air.
I'm too lazy to do it, but maybe someone will calculate how much force was on her arms when she caught Haruue?

I have no Idea on the math but it has to do with Harue's weight and if she reached terminal velocity from that height. Although Saten's arm should be dislocated at least. Maybe her arms got stronger from swinging her baseball bat around?.

Terminal velocity? It takes a far deeper fall for that.

Still, it was probably around 3m down from the helicopter to Saten which is not dismissable...

If Saten normally doesn't have the strenght to toss Harue 3m into the air (adrenaline accounted) with one arm... dislocation + a teared muscle does sound like a lucky outcome.

Well... maybe Harue weights 15kg... in that case Saten could exert enough strenght to catch her...

One thing people seem to be ignoring: Ruiko didn't catch Harue directly from above. The swinging motion itself is enough to blunt most of the energy.

And if Haruue bounced off the wall a bit, that'd take care of whatever remaining energy was in her. Still, Ruiko's arm couldn't have felt too good afterwards.

First of all Saten is able to lift a 50+kg person with both arms and still be able to walk, which is already inhumane feast for a GIRL of HER AGE.
Lifting 90kg (while being still and for really short period) is a world record for girls of her age.

Secondly, whenever she would dislocate her arm or not depends on various factors:
Harues's weight and speed, rate and angle of deceleration during catch and Saten strenght in her arms.

If we consider a 3m fall and then a grab on a bar, a professional gymnast or acrobat would be able to do it (with both hands).
If the bar would be on some elastic rope, 1 hand would be just fine.

I am sure Saten didn't tried to stop her the very instant she grabed her, but rather tried to decelerate all the way her hand can reach (1m cca).
So under absolutely ideal conditions and the canon fact that Saten can lift heavy weight, it might be plausible.
(maybe her skirt flipping plays a role here too )


A side note, the way the guy on helicopter was able to trow Harue (aside to the help of the wind created by rotor blades) was completly impossible.
Either the helicopter had some insane thrust, or the guy used some weight decreasing power, something like application of Awatsuki's power.
By decreasing her weight, he could have thrown her like that and his power was still active by the time she reached Saten.
But it quickly ended when the helicopter got further away, explaining why Saten suddenly lost her grab on the ladder.

The main thing is: Saten's action was really COOL
Finding explanation is not really important for me in this caseXD

I thought the most important Saten point in that episode was how reckless she is wondering through dark alleys alone. Having powerful friends is good, but might want to take care when you can't actually defend yourself...

But yeah, the catch was pretty good .

I think she gets thrill off always getting into trouble, and getting saved by her friends. A big M she is.

I don't think Saten enjoys danger, her expression or behavior never showed that. She likes urban legends and little adventures, but never seeks trouble intentionally, knowing her friends would save her. And she's not getting saved one-sidedly, she's always there for her friends and those in trouble, she does everything in her power, bravely stand up against high-level villains to save the weak. That's what real strength is. In this sense she's way more powerful than some of the Level 5s, who abuse their powers.

A Japanese fan of Saten-san created a Lamborghini in GTA IV decorated with Saten images:

It's always good to see that Saten-san has many dedicated and creative fans

The straight long hair is nice, but for me, the winner is definitely the Saten in chapter 42, page 22.
Chapter 39, page 19 was nice too, but the one on 42 was a win win for me.
In this ep 3. it was similar style as the one in chapter 42, but anime made her brainds a bit wider and the special flower was missing, so I will have to wait for my favorite Saten a bit longer.

Saten-san is really lovely in the scenes you mentioned. Well, I think I was most impressed by the Saten scenes in episode 09, that made completely fell in love with her.
