"Yet" being the oprative word.

I'm half thinking that's Phantom Tasks main goal. To destabilize the world enough to start what would essentially amount to WW3 only with IS. But to paraphrase Scooby doo villains "damn those meddlesome teens".

Then again, opinions from spoilers n aside, this volume is really that bad. If I have to translate it, it will be both eyes closed.

The Cyborg Ninja suit Chifuyu has on looks to be similar to "Jetstream" Sam's: Enforces your body and augments you, but the skill is what you keep to yourself and you never replace your body parts. Essentially: Chifuyu is skilled enough to fight IS, but her body can't naturally take it.

Which means Chifuyu is the most badass thing in the IS verse....except for possibly Tabane.

Considering Tabane, it's probably science trick again

It's not inherently impossible that Tabane is naturally strong, just that considering her antics, she probably augment herself anyway. Probably something along the line of HALO Spartan III/IV

The way she disarmed Madoka, Tabane simply use dematerialization force command, so the rifle doesn't return to I.S. database. Think deleting a file permanently.

Yeah, but what the hell did she put on her? Really, this become VERY similar to Rising.

Chifuyu = Raiden/Jetstream Sam.

Tabane = Senator Armstrong.

I'm half expecting Tabane to say "Nanomachines, Ik-kun!" when Ichika asks her.

What happens to the 2 Sarashikis in Volume 8? Do we get more information or background about them?

Based on the images, it appears Kanzashi is trying to sit next to Ichika at lunch....and the girls seem to be staring her down:/ Tatenashi is also confirmed to have fallen for Ichika (not that it'll do her any good, since Ichika considers her too perfect) and her real name is supposedly "Katana".

Was any reason given why Tatenashi didn't use her real name?

The eldest sibling, which is usually a male. takes over the Sarashiki family and has to take the name "Tatenashi" over their real name. Since Tatenashi is both the elder and the more skilled, she has to replace the name with her own.

Ichika does note that Tatenashi is a boys name (Personally, it sound more feminine than "Katana").

Thanks a lot for the info. Is there an English translation for "Tatenashi"? Also, is there more background info on the Sarashiki family itself?

Nope. Tatenashi seems to be a made up name of some kind. And the org doesn't get much detail. All she says on it is "I'm the leader of a secret organization that's fighting against another (evil) organization.". It never occurs to Ichika to ask her what exactly she meant.

It also opens up the possibility that she's killed before. Her attack on Autumn looked fatal and she did it with a smile and a joke, so she must be used to dealing with danger of that scale.

Tatenashi, without looking anything up my guess is 'Shieldless'.

Ping or Kuroi probably can give better answer, they seen the Kanji.

So the leader of an Org is called "Shieldless"? What an unlucky name:/

This forum seems to be a bit quiet despite today being the release date for Volume 8.

It will be a good long while before Ping gets to the translating, so it will be quiet until Fall at the least.
