Only that according to the summaries, he was Shizuku's cousin, not brother.

Just wondering after rereading the series 1 to 8 while waiting for new translation, during the Nine School Competition, why did the No Head Dragon wanted to interfere? I skip some boring dialogue here and there, I know they would have lost 1 billion dollars if First High Wins and that their superiors didn't want any part of their plans, but no clear why and what they were aiming.

Criminal gambling. They bet on Third High.

That was my first conclusion, but I felt it was too simple. A notorious criminal organization going this far for a bet, and they bet that much? I felt there was something bigger there, looks like the simple conclusion was right.

Yeah, but that's what they said. The higher ups didn't want to since it was too big a risk, but the ones that got offed pushed it through.

Not actually sure if they (No Head Dragon) bet on Third High, but First High was the favourite to win and with a majority betting on them, No Head would start the financial year with a huge deficit if First High did win.
As long as First High didn't win, anyone would have been fine as the champion.

Hey, it's all about money, believe me, for a criminal organization you can't get bigger than that.

I've been looking for the translations since the chapter came out.

(The only lead I have so far is lightnovel, but they've got a post restriction there so I can't access it )

Thanks
Baidu used to be the 1st place the TL thread was set up, but then a few self-entitled assholes asked for faster updates and for deadlines, and it pissed the TLer off into only posting in that post restricted thread on lightnovel site.

Could someone clear something up for me? Spoilers have said that during the fight between Tomitsuka and Tatsuya, Tatsuya fires Mist Dispersion at him. Mist Dispersion is the one that vaporizes people, right? Are we sure it wasn't Gram Dispersion?

I think he did fire Mist Dispersion, but that was probably because Tatsuya wanted to test whether it could work on Tomitsuka or not (no one, except Miyuki, knew what Tatsuya really did), and Tatsuya may just target a piece of clothes so to speak, it didn't necessarily mean he wanted to decompose the little guy

He was just testing it, but it didn't work just as he suspected.

More from NoLife222.

Yes, Tats did fire Mist Dispersion. The reason he did was to test if Mist Dispersion would have worked, which he suspected wouldn't (and he was right). Presumably, the reason is that the psion armor is not a physical armor with physical substance (Mist Dispersion is suppose to only work on objects with physical substance) and as such couldn't be decomposed.

Typically, Gram Dispersion ought to be magic of choice against Tomitsuka's psion armor, but the problem is that Tomitsuka's armor has no meaningful structure to it. It's just a densely packed set of psions due to an unique condition. Gram Dispersion basically breaks down a magic structure into individual meaningless psions. In Tomitsuka's case, there was no structure to break down. It was just a chunk of psions coated around Tomitsuka's body.

In some ways, Tomitsuka's armor is even more of a counter to Tats' magic than Juumonji's Phalanx. Phalanx at least has magical structure, which means Gram Dispersion can completely erase a layer (though Juumonji would erect another layer and get into a theoretical endless stalemate).

The turning point only occurred when Tomitsuka activated his ace move (allowing to perform feats beyond his limit), which reordered his psion armor. This reordering gave the armor a structure for Tats to decompose through, which was what he did with Gram Dispersal. He then finished off Tomitsuka with his newly developed psion bullet (for the parasite).
