They may from the looks of it, it is post volume 6 or 7 as Mana is back on active duty with the AST .

I really do wish someone would translate it not sure why people call it wordy as it doesn't seem that bad compared to other manga but since I can't read it maybe it is too technobablish . but there are some great bits besides the fights. like Origami's raid on Shidou's locker, the epic Tohka vs Origami soccer match, Origami's closet of wonders (note the maid outfit isn't the only one in there), a flash back to Origami stopping Tohka from killing an other non combatant, Tohka's bike,

Not really reading it but I have the books. But my ability to read Japanese is effectively 0. I can only make rough guesses based on the artwork. The armor names are clearly named in English so I am sure of those but I may have mixed up Leon and Unicorn since I'm not sure which armor came out of which pod so I went with iding them based on theme

Spoiler for possible date a strike spoilers again not sure of all facts:
My memory must of fail on me, cause I don't remember any of this in vol 2.

Ohh... are you referring to this? http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=76102?

Since there no scanlation for it, that might be the reason I haven't heard of it.

@ mike211 yes that's the one.

@Aiki not sure why you are saying the story is off as it is dealing with a rouge group of what I believe were DEM mages. It seems to take place after volume 5 and likely 6 or 7 as Mana is out of hospital . Summaries have been unclear if Mana left the AST or not and that is the only point I see that ismight be off.

......all of them practically get super powers and suddenly reaches Mana's level in a instant (=.=)ll Mana is one of DEM's strongest and some random bad guys appears and can take her on equally. even Mike gets a super power up and shes a noob (=.=)*literally*. and Mana gets taken away in Volume 5. starting from Vol 3 she first met origami, then gets send to the hospital until volume 5 where she gets taken away. it doesnt enter the time slot.

As I said it looks to be set post volume 6 when Mana did return. The bad guys aren't quite that random and the stolen armor are pretty much super prototypes and the main reason Mana is so powerfull is due to the mods DEM put in her. It is believable that next gen DEM equipment could bridge that gap. Also Mike is not at Mana's level as Mana seems to be the only one that doesn't keep getting the cap beat out of her.

Speaking of Date A Strike, the person who did the summary for vol 7 posted some info about it here.

Who knows, I thought it may due to multiple translators' all working on different parts of volume 6.
