Kagamai was (and still probably is) indeed sealed, but remember that Hishamaru was pretty fucked up as well (and still is) due to breaking her seals forcefully.

So, neither were at their actual max.

That being said, I wonder how powerful unsealed Kagami compares to Miyachi, since it seems both of them were raised under somewhat similar circumstances.

Got two questions here:

-What exactly was the job of the Spirit Division/Department?

-Does Hishamaru mean "Rook Circle" or does the "maru" here have a different context? If so what is it? For reference I've heard that maru can mean "precious" or "perfect".

-maru is an old Japanese name ending. Lots of guys back then had that as part of their name. Though it does technically mean circle.

Also, the rook connotation is somewhat different. We think of a rook as a piece that simply goes in a straight line. In shogi, there's only one rook, and he can gain promotion (kind of like a pawn in chess) to become a dragon king (not joking). It, along with the single bishop's promotion dragon horse, basically become chess' queens. Just a little bit of background to the name a bit.

I see, I thought it might be play on words like Kakugyouki meaning "Bishop Demon".

That said IIRC, a Rook is often considered a knight in chess, considering Hishamaru's disposition and her manner of speech she would essentially be this.

The Lingering Spirit Division was responsible for stabilizing the spirit flow in Tokyo and exorcising lingering spirits.

The reason it was put under the Imperial Household Agency was because most of the lingering spirits were former royalty and nobility, so they didn't want the Onmyou Agency to get too involved.

Thanks Endscape, that's better explanation than manga gave.

It makes even more sense now that Shidou a member of a clan who's had ties to royalty would be the chief there, at least for political reasons.

Though I was also under the impression that did research on souls, hence stepping into territory forbidden by the government.

Thank you based Azano.
Hopefully volume 11 will give a bit more meat than vol10, and by that I'm not simply saying I want to see Kyouko.
Anyway, volume 10 was nice to see Natsume being more casual now that she doesn't have to keep up appearances. It was also fun to see Yakou having fun and not giving a shit even though they were dealing with some monks (one of them being strong as fuck) and some Divine Generals were on their way.

I told he's not as bad as most authors about it! Azano roughly puts out 2-3 volumes per year.

Great news in anycase!

I'll be happy just to everybody else back again. I feel vol 11 is probably going to be partly a reestablishment of sorts for the cast and in case of Akino proper integration into the MCs.

I actually wonder if the rest of the cast will fit in the second part.
How do I put it...? I think they worked well during the School Days part, considering that despite some dangers here and there, it was a mostly controlled environment.
However, this second part seems to be the actual Onmyouji world, and it was made clear in the first part that, no matter how good the students might have looked on some occasions, they were still leagues away from an actual, full-fledged Onmyouji. That's something the story always stuck to, instead of following the cliché in which the students are ultra super special and even the experienced adults cannot compare. Even in volume 10 Natsume had enough trouble and had to be rescued twice.

So, though I'd love to see the cast from Part 1, I'd also think it'd be interesting to see a new cast, formed by adult, experienced Onmyouji. I doubt anything like that will happen, though.

Actually you are forgetting that main cast were the best of students in the first part. Harutora and co have manage handle themselves quite well against rather formidable opponents like Fake Hishamaru and Kakaugyouki, the Nue and even Shaver. By vol 7 they were able to hold their against own against professional Exorcists and spiritual disasters to which even Kagami was impressed. Every time a conflict has appeared they shown remarkable growth, while the story maintained a believable power balance between them and the adults. Hell, they are already on threshold of being adults themselves now as of Part 2!

If anything going by how they have progressed in Part 1 and training they are implied to be receiving during the timeskip, I expect them to be far stronger (nowhere close to Harutora ofcourse). As you point out, they're no longer at boundaries of the world of Onmyoudo, but neck deep into it on multiple levels.

That said, I'm sure there will be new additions too, I doubt Akino and Yamashiro will be only ones.

Touji and Suzuka have plenty of potential so no worry on them. Kyouko reads stars. Now only Tenma, I think the best way he'll fit in the story is to go his parents' route.

We have the current and former divine generals for adult and experienced casts. There's a twins special spirit sensor mentioned in vol 10 too IIRC, and who knows Jougen and Rian will pop out sometime again.

He definitely seems more like the "behind the scenes" kind of guy who supports the cast indirectly since he's not much of a direct fighter.

BTW about Kagami
