Yes, but as pointed out by the translator's, they are only using "girlfriend" as a tentative translation for the word "kanojo". Kanojo has a connotation of 'lover', 'sweetheart', or 'girlfriend' but has a literal definition of something like 'that girl'. Unless something has changed since the first time it was translated as girlfriend, we do not have any confirmation that this is actually the status of Zen and Ajimi's relationship.

I'm guessing stuopidget may be reading from the raws, which means he wouldn't have seen CxC scans' tentative interpretation of the meaning. I think people should understand that it is just a guess for now, and refrain from extensively speculating on the basis of it.

^Yes, I know this ... but since he asked I told him where it was written in the chapters translated.
If you see my other post i have never given the certainty that it was Zen's girlfriend, but only that they had some kind of relationship seen Kumagawa reactions .
For this reason I hope that the next chapter will give us some more info about that.

Someone elsewhere pointed out a possible hidden meaning to Zen's name

If you split the kanji 吉→±0

Yeah I read about this as well.
Now that I think about it , it is strange that Hitomi is so quiet about the possible death of Zen and during the Zen death in cap 70 and 71 , everyone was angry and sad (especially Medaka) except her.

Correct, since right now we don't really have any confirmation, it's just tentative. Kinda fits kumagawa's teasing nature though no?

As far as I know, Kanojo translates to "She" when I've seen it.

Although I love Beelzebub, I still say hell yeah!!!!

It might be the only time it does though, since the anime could push it up a couple thousands later on.

And MB was almost in the top five in this week ToC as well.

Beezlebub's a volume ahead and has been pushed much more heavily by Jump so it really should be outselling Medaka Box, and it did after the second week anyway...

But yeah Beezlebub Vol 10 Vs Medaka Vol 9 will be with anime bump for Beezlebub, should push it past 100k opening week, really should be higher than 110k... Sket Dance should also jump to that level once the anime bumps it up leaving Medaka and Kuroko behind until they too get their anime shows.

Look @ Toriko and Mago which were fairly even, now Mago sells 50k more in first two weeks thanks to the anime, I except Toriko to surpass Mago once it airs, especially since it's the new lead in for One Piece anime.

Good to see Medaka Box finish 6th for this week as well, really hope they wait until the current arc is over before going ahead with the anime... the anime needs Kumagawa... hope they zip through the initial parts...

I think the bigger question should be why Ajimi has any connection with Kumagawa. She has to have a reason for running under him. Did her power make her feel sympathy towards even the biggest minus?
