It's almost like the mangaka doesn't have to think about what comes next. She's probably planned out the whole series well in advance of actually starting it, or it was one of her pet projects in the past before she got picked up by the magazine.

Impressive, really.
Actually, based on the hint at the earlier chapters, she really seem to plan ahead.. or at least got a general direction to follow tru.

And what i like most is that she dropped subtle hints here and there.. easiest one to see was chapter 3.. All Minato's sekirei was on display (thus we can really say it a matter of time before Akitsu joins) Then, further along the chapter.. I dont remember which chapter, Takami showed us a pic of her and Minato and Yukari, only to be revealed at the end of the bridge arc. Then Minato - Minaka relation, first their name, then Kazehana drop a hint that Minato really resembled her unrequite lover, only to find out that she used to lust over Minaka There are probably more, but it probably brushed off as unimportant or simply gone unnotice, until it revealed later on that made you go OH SHI- I remembered this bits before D:

aside from akitsu being winged and minaka being minato's father, are there other subtle hints given before that hasn't happened yet?

Can you even wing a sekirei that has already been winged in the first place? For one thing, we don't see ashikabi stealing sekirei from other rivals. In fact, the winging of the last remaining unwinged ones is almost like a race between ambitious ashikabi, as can be seen during Kuu and Homura's arcs.

Or does the fact that Akitsu is not numbered make her a special case? Perhaps the reason why she's considered to be a reject is because she cannot be truly winged, which could also possibly mean not having the ability to pray during battle, and thus also considered to be "defective". How about Miya, whose ashikabi is already deceased? She isn't listed by the MBI to be one of the unwinged ones, but can she still be winged if she chooses to?

Akitsu was a disused product and considered a danger, while she cant be wing anymore (as far as the info that we are given) I think she will still join up the family XD

We ave to wait for Matsu's explaination next chapters.. probably take some chapters tho :/

Is it possible matsu is in fact an element using sekirei? I'm pretty sure she admitted that even she's gonna get involved in the fighting in the next round. And she's a single digit sekirei which is where the wind, fire, light, darkness and water sekirei could be found.

She already said she's the sekirei of wisdom.

its better not to have all of minato's sekireis to be fighters, it adds variety. matsu is fine as the perverted brain of the group

Moe weapon? Yeah, against an otaku maybe.

To me, she's either the support or maybe the healer of the group, but one solid hit and it looks like she'll be out for the remainder of the battle. She can be effective, but she's also still too young. Good thing her power affects plant growth.

In terms of power, Kazehana is the strongest right? Well, maybe Musubi with Yume's power is stronger, but in a normal situation I mean.

I think her power's going to be more sophisticated than just an element; it fits more with her character.

I've always wondered how she got all that equipment in her room; pretty sure it'd be really hard to go out and buy all of that without MBI noticing; plus they've yet to trace her back to the Izumo house with all the hacking she's been doing.

Which has lead me to a theory:

She's the most experienced so far, along with Homura, but strongest is yet to be really grasped. Tsukiumi's gone a long way from Water Festivaling people in the beginning to that sword of hers in the bridge arc.

Kazehana's hasn't been fighting seriously.

I want to see her in serious-mode.
And with the element of wind, there's so many techniques she can use (and potential).

BTW, when is next chapter?

The next chapter should be out next week, I believe.

And yes, Kazehana is the most experienced. I want to see her get PISSED one of these days.

Also, don't forget, Tsukiumi's got that 8 headed serpent attack now as well. Plus Musubi's got that Bear Punch of hers as well.

next chapter should be out this friday. translations probably will follow after a few days.

the wormhole theory by shinova might explain the matsu roll scene

you know i just thought about it, minato lacks a normal girl in his harem

What exactly constitutes as normal in the world of Sekirei??


Im betting we're gonna have to wait atleast 4-5 chaps before the Kagari issue is resolved, epsc after the appearance of 00 in 69.

btw semi-dumb ques but has 69 been scanlated yet, I cant seem to find it.

as calth said, mangaupdates has a link where you can download it

by normal i mean human/non-sekirei, doesnt minato have a childhood friend or something

on the kagari gender: what if the author just decides to ignore ever revealing his/her gender?
