That…is just speculation.

Yeah, if he's referring to Toru getting revenge like that I don't see that happening. Toru isn't the type to do that. Now if he's referring to Tokita, that is up for grabs. He said he's on Kuga's side, but his true motives may be different. It's obvious he's upset that Kuga's arrow isn't pointing at him...

I won't deny that. However...

Spoiler for ch14 conversation:


Hijiri seems to think Toru has some role in Kuga's fate. That of course does not say whether it will really happen or not, since a person's fate isn't set in stone.

Where does Hijiri mention that? Only Kuga mentions him.

What a sad chapter, but it makes me love this manga so much more! As evil as she is, Kuga is a brilliant character. I too think "Iris Hunting" is purely psychological, and I can't wait to see how this all unfolds. Also, I think the "that" Kijiri is referring to isn't Toru, but Koyuki instead. Toru said it himself, no matter how much you try, you can't keep her away. I believe she'll be stubborn enough to talk to Toru regardless of Kuga's words.

The series was always dark or trying to evoke a more mature theme when it presented the background of Iris Zero at the beginning. It won't reach narutaru level of madness but these kids sure are abusing their gift. Up to now, it feels like there is quite an exaggeration from the poster around... well that’s what I'm feeling.
Touru knows all the answer I so thinking he wasn’t tricked in anyway but only reflecting on what’s happening…

Give me a break.
That might not be the entire truth since the rumour of Iris Hunter spreaded long before and there is a victim count. So I'm assuming it was planned, even taking away the iris of the person she might have liked. In essence I don't think her agenda correlated to the issue with her boyfriend. Maybe something was concocted long ago during before the festival. Even with that said I still think it’s murky on who or what is an Iris Hunter.

It might be too early to form a conclusion ^^, from this chapter.

You misunderstood. She laments that what she can see gives her tragic outcomes, and that the world would be better had Irises not existed, so she's out to erase everyone's Irises and take general revenge on society for showing the kind of ugliness that she saw in her lover.

I don't think she is directly targeting her friends, and I think she might be consciously letting closer friends like Sasamori be, except for Toru. She noticed his problem-solving prowess over past chapters, which is an obvious threat to her mission, so he must go away.

I view the entire arc as essentially a chain of misunderstandings, highlighting how perfect information with no communication would lead to disaster as everyone makes their own conclusions and acts upon them. Toru himself is guilty of that.

I agree with you here, Kuga is most definitely not a bitch, I think because almost everyone has their own Iris, that provides them with perfect information which many people act on themselves as seen when the gang see the confession. Sasomori herself likes to act on her own accord which is why the Toru is the qualified person to help her since from young he has been forced to use his imagination to see what others see through thier Iris.

Kuga herself because her Iris shows others emotions, it makes her more introverted as she knows how other people are feeling and since the way in which she has always understood emotion is through her Iris it is hard for to express Emotion so she does it in a very well 'evil' way.

I think she just pissed off since everything had been decided/proved due to the iris ability.

Dayum... then again, as was pointed out, this series has always had the potential to go dark, and it looks like the potential is being realized

that being said, I'm pretty the RAWs are out to either 16 or 17, and I think someone said that

Spoiler for RAWs:

Pretty sure it is. Chapter 17 came out on 1/27 and 18 was supposed to come out 2/26, but I could be incorrect...
