I don't really think there are bad guys in the mahouka universe, everyone just kinda looks after thenself and their own, while some can hold a grudge it doesn't surpass the antagonist phase everyone has their reasons.

For Mayumi, I think she's interested and Lina has a school girl crush on Tatsuya, only that she's in denial
Where in the story is this mentioned.

in vol 8, when Tatsuya escorted Miyuki to one of the Yotsuba's party-like events, the Kuroba twins immediately ran to Tatsuya when they saw him, their eyes were shining with admiration toward Tatsuya while Miyuki stood aside wondering why they were behaving like that

It's mentioned in Volume 8 when they show up. Though it's not specified that Ayaka liked him in a romantic way.

Just in perspective towards Miyuki. As opposed to Miyuki, who at the time acted very annoyed with Tatsuya and treated him as nothing more than a servant, Ayaka and Fumiya excitedly interacted with him and enjoyed his company.

Therefore, quite obviously, at the time Ayaka had greater affection for Tatsuya than Miyuki; being that Miyuki had virtually no affection for Tatsuya at the time.

Again, wasn't specified as being romantic. Literally anyone who was nice to Tatsuya in his life before 3 years ago had more affection for him than Miyuki.

oh now I remember, but in the present time I don't get the feeling she likes him that much.
Maybe she decided to back off so she could give Fumiya a chance
or should I say "give Yami a chance".

Now, i would be ok with the claim that there are no good guys, but there's plenty of varying degrees of bad going around.

Yeah, but are there really millions? The fleet itself was "ten large vessels with two times as many destroyers and torpedo boats".

Maybe not million but Hundreds of Thousands man.


For comparison,

Fat man and little boy less than 20 KILOtons and killed 250.000 man.

Tatsuya bomb is 20 MEGAtons ( novel say there is no civilian).

I think satou did misscalculation.

Some do that for justice. For defending themself. For greater good.

While the other seek for power and create war.

Japan's government is good guy because they didn't has the chance to conquer others.
Or at least the novel never state anything about that.

Instead some heroic act like Kazama did when he went to Vietnam and save them from GAA.

It was THESE good guys' doing that the Ten Master Clan magicians have become this powerful. You got the sarcasm?

The first part of Vol 12 Ch 11 seems to indicate that she did have a thing for him. Ayako tried to have conversations with him but as usual his defense is impenetrable.



p.s. some how I feel that Ayako's reactions with Tatsuya were some what similar to Erika's.

No, I'm a bit slow. Please enlighten me in simple words.

What I know is Japan is good as a Nation. But some can be bad as individuals.

Don't forget that miraculously only one nation stand alone and didn't colonize other country. They didn't make other country as their slaves.

They didn't conquer other nation aggresively. Not even once.



You may compare with Japan's neighbour, they're very aggresive agressor.
And USNA the backstabber.

For the Vietnam part, it can be argued that Japan sent reinforcement in order to have a good ally in the region as the GAA and New Soviet Union had become ridiculously big. If Vietnam and the South East Asia had been conquered, then Japan would have been in a very tight spot as the GAA could now pour more force to the East => Japan

Using the world of Mahouka as a scope, Japan is a metropolitan with enough power to make a nation kneel but not enough resource to maintain and colonize a country

I think you can learn WWII from history book.


Ah, they're simply nice guy.
Look how GAA aggresively attack them not only once, they already tried that so many times.
But you know the Japanese is so nice and not racist. They accept GAA's citizen in their country so well.

Also Japan didn't tried to kidnap GAA's kids. Japan didn't experiment using other nation's child. Cloning, etc only using local bodies.

Japan is not good as a nation.
Japan, as a nation, was guilty of forming the 10 master clans, is guilty of using humans as living weapons, is guilty of human testing.
Every bad thing the ten master clans and/or hundred familias have done, Japan is guilty of (because ten master clans are part of Japan, at official level).

Are there worse countries, sure, are there better countries, maybe.
But Japan, is not good.
Because in the end, as a Democracy it is guilty of the people it allows, even encourages, to act in immoral ways.

That's for survival...

The Ten Masters Clan, the 18 assistant houses, the hundred famillies, were created and developed in order for Japan to have powerful magicians in their back pocket....Those clans were well compensated...

Magicians, world wide, are treated as weapons....Magicians in japan at least have some right and leisure....
