Unless he was actually trying to bait the dragon out, or something.

Yeah, now that you mention it, that's possible. But we'll see. It'd be great if that turned out be the case.

Next chapter is out! So, we finally discover the leverage Edlin had over that dragon.... unfortunately, it doesn't take long for him to lose it after the bandits commit mutiny! And now, we've got a royally pissed dragon on the loose....!!!!

They didn't tell us what happened to the real egg (just that Eldin didn't eat it ), I guess the baby is already born and that's how they'll calm down the dragon.

For Edlin's sake I hope the real egg's already hatched.

And man, Anne and Percival are looking down on Howzer so hard even after finding out that he's Holy Knight Captain. I guess it serves him right for ruining his own image.

It's that time again! Though, the English chapter isn't out yet as of this writing:

And a bump for the next chapter (the English translation being out earlier this time)! As Percy faces the dragon, Sin fills Howzer in on the situation! As it turns out, the fox is indeed a secret agent for the king of Liones! He's tasked with finding the Four Knights of the Apocalypse, though he notes that the current Percy hasn't even reached half of his full potential yet. He also refers to Arthur's holy knights as the Knights of Chaos, interestingly enough. Having heard the story from the fox, the knight captain asks Nasciens to sober him up....

Meanwhile, Percy discovers that he's not quite a match for an ancient dragon quite yet. Thankfully, someone who is takes over for him: Howzer! He soon shows that his powerful wind magic makes him more than capable of taking on the beast....!!!!

And on the subject of magic, there's something else of interest to note: In the upcoming third volume for this series (which comes out next weekend), it's been confirmed that the author will include an explanation of the different magic types as part of the extra content! Definitely looking forward to that!


Edit: Also, going back to Sin.... I think I may now have an inkling as to his true identity. At this point, I'm more convinced that he is NOT one of the Seven Deadly Sins, but is definitely someone connected to them. Now, all this time many of us (myself included) kept thinking that he may be Ban due to the whole fox connection, but recall in NNT we were introduced to another character who resembled the Sin of Greed.... Rou, that one human who fought in the first Holy War. Then recall that he died and ended up reincarnated.... as King's canine companion, Oslo. Now, Oslo ended up dying in the second Holy War, later in the series. But.... what if he were reincarnated again? Yes, my theory is that Sin is the former Rou/Oslo!!! The Ban/Fox connection could just be another clever red herring on the author's part, just as many of us were convinced that Ban was a reincarnated Rou in NNT.....

Is Percival a lot weaker than he appears to be or did Howser receive a massive power-up?

Howser is probably stronger than he was before, but the dragon is likely just not that big of a deal. Early series Mel and Ban were able to destroy a barrier capable of containing 4 dragons (though not of the same species, admittedly) without just the shockwaves from arm wrestling.

I think it might be a bit of both, personally. Again, Sin already pointed out that Percy hasn't even reached half of his full potential yet, and I think it stands to reason that Howzer would be far more powerful 16 years after NNT's end. It's just that booze is a pretty big detriment for him, in contrast to guys like Ban.

I dunno, I think getting drunk is a detriment to Ban in a different way, as the vampire extermination mission highlighted.

I love how Donny has complete confidence in his uncle and knew he'd be fine. I guess he noticed he'd be fine because he's not drunk anymore.

Next chapter is here! Howzer subdues the dragon, who shortly afterword is reunited with her baby! Then, the holy knight makes amends with Donnie and Edlin, the latter of whom he accepts back under his wing! Donnie, of course, wants to stay with his friends, and is about to take back the Chaos dragon piece of the coffin, but Howzer warns him that Arthur's knights will be hunting them down for it, which discourages him from taking it. So instead, Percival volunteers to carry it! But before our heroes continue their journey, Howzer prepares one last surprise for them:

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

And so, the heroes depart! But there seems to be some funny-looking bird following the party....?

I don't get why Howzer doesn't escort them. He's going back to Liones too, isn't he? He's captain after all.

That's what I was going to ask too. Maybe he hasn't drunk the town dry yet.

Good way to wrap up the arc, although the coffin piece stuff is a valid complaint, along with the lack of escort.

If that piece holds such importance, wouldn't it make more sense for Howzer to take it, and personally bring it back to Meliodas?

Yeah, I'm wondering those things myself. Why Howzer didn't escort them and carry the piece of the Coffin himself while he was at it.

And yeah, I was also expecting Tristan to use his father's old sword. And like Marvel said, Percival does already have a sword. Let's wait and see what happens.

Yes, I also find it odd that Howzer isn't escorting the party. The only reason I can think for him not to is that Sin specifically told him not to accompany them. Like maybe his presence risks compromising the fox's secret mission or something. At least, that's all I can think of at the moment.

Anyhoo, last week I mentioned that the third volume would release around this time.... and it did! I also brought up that it would include a list of the different magic types, so here we are! Credit goes to MH's FKS for the translation:

Regarding the types of magic
Magic is the mysterious force various creatures inhabiting Britannia possess.
The force is diverse and classified into 9 types of magic.
There are very rare instances of a person possessing two or more types of magic. Among these people, one out of everyone possesses four or more types of magic. Such people are called Heroes.
Destruction type - Magic that directly attacks the target with natural forces like thunder or flame, or a non-natural dark force.
Alteration type - It modifies the properties of matter. There are a ton of varieties to it, like modifying an object's weight, the hardness or water into ice.
Restoration type - A force that heals the wounds or ailments. Its effects and scope are diverse. It is regarded to be mostly the Goddesses' magic.
Search type - Different forces, like locating a particular object or finding out how genuine a person is, have been identified.
Mental type - It is regarded to be able to manipulate a person's mind and their memories. Depending how it is used, it can be more powerful than the Destruction type.
Deception type - A magic that generates illusions or causes audition hallucinations. It is thought to be found in Fairies for the most.
Stealth type - A shadow force that lets one to approach their opponent without being noticed or track the opponent's movements from faraway.
Enchantment type - Unlike the Destruction type, it bestows a natural force, like a thunder or a flame, or a non-natural force to a tool or a weapon.
Oracle type - A force surpassing the human intellect, that predicts the weather or the future events. It is regarded to be the rarest of 9 types of magic.
^Hmm, I wonder if Merlin also counts as a Hero? I mean, her magic is called "Infinity" and seems to encompass several different types, judging by all the crazy stuff we saw her do in NNT. I'd also like to say that Mel counts as a purely destruction-type, but as I recall, we never actually saw him use his original magic powers (which the Demon King claimed he was too afraid to use). Maybe that will be further explained in the sequel....?

Oh, and a couple extra comics were included in the volume! The first is an amusing little story where Nasciens "fixes" Donnie's hair (which Percy shaved with an arrow earlier in the series, remember), with rather amusing results! The other one is a bit more interesting, IMO: It's a short flashback comic involving Percy and his grandfather, Varghese. What's notable about it is that while in the middle of training, Varghese notes that his king, Arthur, has "changed". He also harbors suspicion towards Ironside. Perhaps this is a hint that the ruler of Camelot has been corrupted by Chaos' influence, after all....?

So, where does Ban's magic fit in all this?

Isn't that obvious?

Of course, but there's still that chance, however slim it might be now, that Deathpierce may have had some hand in Arthur's abrupt switch to human supremacy. Or heck, maybe both Deathpierce AND Chaos are responsible. My point is, there may not be one sole reason for the king's sudden change....
