Oh, so it could have been from a special dance class? not necessarily from being familiar with the ...eh... "pink" side of Academy City?

She probably learned capoeira, and added elements of break and pole dancing to create something unique. More than likely,she used the Internet to get info on the last two.

Break/pole dancing aren't really what you can easily learn from the Internet. Both are easy to learn in Japan due to various places that teach them, so it's not really something special.


I doubt there are any pink districts in Academy City. There would be girls selling themselves, but a designated area? Most likely not.....

Most likely not, since District 10 (overrun by Skill Out) and 19 (in decline) might be places where those things might happen systematically.

Anyway, Maria is an esper that probably could benefit a lot from high tech armor/exoskeleton as a way to better exploit her ability without breaking her bones.

I had the impression that breakdancing was more freestyle. Once the basic movements are learnt, (and that shouldn't be so hard, since breakdancing and capoeira have similar movements), you take it in your own direction.

well, there are some flaws in AC security, i mean, skillout manages to get guns quite easy, also theres been said that there is even human trafficking.

There's also a mention of people using the private salons on District 3 for dubious purposes, and District 10 probably had a lot of it before Komaba (and maybe after him.) But the thing is, it's all underground and on the move, so it happens all over the place (though hidden) rather than at a specific location. Well, that's how I understand it anyway.

It's a city with crazy drinks at any vending machine and also bizarre health items - I'm pretty sure you can find that kind of manuals on the net

As for 'pink' districts... AFAIK Skill-Out's leader that Accel killed off had a standing order of banning Skill-Out making money from prostitution, and Hattori who took on the leader role probably left it on considering his personality. It probably won't be that big a issue compared to say some real-life slums/cities.

Maria: "Just so you know, I'd also incorporate pole dancing into my fighting style "

Touma: "That's good, I heard from Fukiyose that some girls use pole dancing as a form of exercise."

Maria: "..."

Touma: "What?"

Maria: "Nothing... It's just that... Even though I know what kind of person you are, to hear you say that is still a critical hit to my pride...>.>"

Touma: " ?"

He doesn't even get the undertone...for a normal guy's reaction, visit Hamazura.

Hamazura: *Nosebleed* "Is that so..." (Trying to keep calm while his girlfriend looks on)

Definitely Hamazura would give the most normal response... others might say:

Accelerator: "Uh? Why should I care?"

Aqua: "..."

Tsuchimikado: "I wonder if Maika can do that too"

Gunha: "You have GUTS!"

Aogami: "Yes, a maid dancer is fine too"

I messed up on that ボ and ポ part. Got to thank Sumeragi for pointing that out.

Shouldn't Aogami be jumping for joy?

Anyway, the girls are not going to let Maria get her way. Just add Seria to the picture.

You know a lot of people here are lolicons when they're (at least) swooning over someone who's most likely younger than Index/Mikoto...and knows pole dance...

Objection. She's more likely to be older than at least Mikoto, given that assuming Maika's lace cuffs indicates an advanced level, it's likely that someone of Maria's skills and supposedly same level as Maika would indicate she's 14~15.

I swear she was 16.

...No really, I was under the impression that she was a highschooler, I mean Seria should be 17-18 since she's Touma's sempai, so give or take 2-3 years difference.

And for the record, I wasn't swooning.

I never swoon.
