Depends on the dimension. An annoying little shit like Desil isn't fun to watch like Gilgamesh is. The Hucks are more in line with the latter.

I had to agree with Raiser despite not having any idea of who that Desil guy is. The Hucks seems pretty Gilgamesh-like in the fact they're prone to gloat about pretty much anything and treating anyone else like worthless trash. This is specially true in the cases of Cypha and Curren, Veyron seems to be less prone to this practice, Stella do it in a comical way and Arnage seems to be pretty humble about making her best effort instead of rubbing her "invincibleness" on other people's faces.

Cypha's treatement of Quinn further confirms how much she enjoys being a douche to whoever she thinks she can beat. Her constant trolling seems to lessen a bit when she faces opponents or situations she thinks could grow beyond her control. I'm still waiting to see her behavior when faced by an actually superior adversary (the Big Bad perhaps?) and finds herself helpless to change the incoming result. Gilgamesh went nuts or sarcastically cynic the rare times he actually ends up bested and killed.

It will be at least entertaining to see how a confident and invincible smug super will react once faced with the incoming gut-wrenching shame of failure and defeat.

Well, in Gilgamesh case, he's actually have the power and the title to back it up. He's just too arrogant most of the time.
As for shame of failure and defeat, two scenarios can happen:
1 The idealistic one: The villain join the good guy side, either because she realise she's on the wrong side (unlikely) or to find out how they got so strong (still unlikely, but more plausible than the other)
2 The realise/pessimistic one: She goes batsh*t insane and become obsessed with defeating whoever beat her.

Quinn will probably be the #2 without the insanity.

No harem comment ?

The brain bomb is one way it could end for Quinn... I don`t think Marky knew about it and now the Grandels are officially working for VC.

I also fiund that a little farfetched but i foprgive them that scene cause we finally got to have some details about how Eclipse Powers actually work xDU.
Glad to know that S6 learned so much on their own while studying Thoma...
Are they still THAT clueless after all this time ?

Actually the harem part is a bonus after staying with Touma for a long time

Finally, record 24- Part 1 has been translated in spanish. And here i am again posting the corresponding summary, let's begin with this...

Spoiler for Saving Private Signum:


We have a short half-chapter this time whic more or less consist on clean the scenario for Signum and Cypha's rematch on next part. It's good to see the training pays off, ironically Isis and Lily shown more proficency than Tohma during this fight, being ablet to thwart and capture Maria very quickly. The Ochstan looks ok for Teana (as i said she's the best suited to have big techy guns xD) and si kind of a fancy shotgun appearance-like.

At the end of the day the Grendels ended up as a super powered Team rocket xDU The goofy villains able to cause annoyance but that are leagues far below the actual bad guys xDU So far Carter seems to be the only one with fair chances in a battle against a Huck. Let's see what happens when Caro tries to secure him and Lolo.

As for the upcoming battle there are positive and negative points. The good thing is that Cypha will use Quinn's divider to replace just one of her swords, she still going to dueal wield and use one of her orignal reacted blades in battle. The lame part comes with the fact Cypha mentioned she has been forbidden by Curron from killing Signum which means she'll fight handicapped ...which means it's another reason to undermine Signum's possible victory in the rare case she comes out on top. So yeah, my hype for this re-match has decreased a little xDU

There's no worth in defeating Cypha if she's not fighting seriously, so i hope Signum at least manage to push har into going full psycho again.

"Alto confirms Maria and Quinn are captured aboard the helicopter and guarded by the Force Trio. Cinque says the leader and the deliverer will be captured soon."

In a helicopter ? That`s such a good idea...
I think I saw too much movies.

Shit Signum, what are you doing

Shouldn't their fight be halfway over now, then? One second Touma's just standing there with the criminal, and then bam, they're on transport outta there?

I kinda doubt Cypha is going to follow those orders for very long, also, especially if Signum pisses her off, which seems likely.

She spared Quinn because Thoma asked her nicely. Why wouldn't she listen to Curren ordering her not to kill anyone?

lol Signum is the one that lost her cool last time...
Besides, you don`t pissed off Cypha... It`s the other way around !

Something will go wrong... It just has to be. A flawless victory without the Aces ? Unimaginable !

If it's anything like SRW's Oxtongue/Ochstan riffle (and it probably is)

it can switch between solid physical rounds and beam firing mode (magic)

Pretty much, hope she learned something about that experiece (doubtfull since she's still making claims of superiority towards Cypha, seems Signum will never learn to be humble in battle xDU).

I know, chances for Signum to screw up this are pretty high both plot and powerwise xDU

Nah, not even the Aces have managed to score descicive victories in this season, let alone "flawless", let's see:

- Nanoha got trounced by Tohma.
- Fate was unable to deal solid damage or achieve any important progress against either Cypha and Deville.
- Hayate just met her superior counterpart xDU

Perhaps you should look up the definition of 'trounced.'

If getting all of your attacks easilly shrugged off and your shiny upgrades being torn appart one by one until left you totally defensless and at the mercy of the opponent doesn't count as "trounced" then yeah, there's something wrong with my definition of the concept xDU

What happened to Signum would be closer to the definition of 'trounced.'

More like Signum is an exaggerated example. Nanoha got trounced while Signum got utter-trounced (or r**ed if you want to save words xDU).

You're just going to have to take my word for it, Aki. A trouncing is not what you think it is. Thoma didn't even defeat Nanoha, let alone trounce her.
