The art is actually pretty good. Drills' ability also has an interesting name.

People were interpreting her name as "wet girl" due to the interpretation of the kanji as "be watered" as in a plant getting nourishment. But it's better interpreted as "blessed girl of the sail-winds". It ties more closely to her ability name.

Translator has confirmed that the debut chapter of Astral Buddy is 58 pages long.
That means a TON of things going on.

Finally a name for her. And interesting power. Junko being the decoy in NT7 with carrying a gym bag that can fit a person now makes sense if she can augment her strength like that. Clever bait since Mikoto would know her power as well. The title now make sense with that ghost (?) in the end. An esper ability or an AIM being like Kazakiri?

There seems to be a case of wide spread Yuri going on at Tokiwadai.

Junko has a nice ability, though until we get more information on it, I'm skeptical as to whether or not it should really be a level 4 ability.

I'm guessing the ghost girl is actually some sort of AIM being.

"Spooky noises in an empty classroom"
"A moving sculpture in the art room"
"A landing that gives you a chill and anemia when you stand on it"
"A will-o'-the-wisp wandering the rooftop"
"The courtyard that makes you sneeze until you have to be hospitalized"

Obligatory seven mysteries.

nice chapter,

i dont think this story will have big events like railgun/accel but more focus on slice-of-life,mystery,comedy

the kuroko and drill-girl duo is also nice to watch, and yuri is nice too

I thought the same thing, but it makes more sense once you notice some subtle stuff. There's a tiny crackle of electricity when she sniffs out that scent, hinting that she can also enhance her senses. And when the scene cuts to inside the school with the ghost, she's not wearing the sling anymore, so she appears to have some sort of healing factor.

By itself the strength would probably just be Level 3, but she seems to be able to do alot of different stuff with it.

She's still wearing the sling. You can still see the strap on that double spread page of the ghost's appearance at the end of the chapter. In the previous page it was just hard to see since it's being covered by her hair. And it just looked like she doesn't have it since her arm and legs are covering up the other arm.

I don't think it will be an AIM Being like Kazakiri because Astral Projection is one of these thing that people believe can be done by Real Life Esper who there is no true solid prove they are real. Also if we are entering something to do which Astral Projection we will most likey get into stuff to do which the Astral Plane which will connect back to stuff which the real life Crowley and Golden Dawn. There a lots of plots that an Esper which Astral Projection could go.

Like trying to use her to take control of Esper AIM or the place that Kazakiri come from. Level Shift for Esper or trying to change her into an AIM being.

Also maybe we will learn what "That" which is under direct control of Tokiwadai Middle School's Student Council from the parody story.

She's wearing it, but it's not actually on her arm, she just has it slung over her shoulder.

That was a really good chapter 1. Amazing like always. This is why Kamachi continues to be my favorite author and To aru verse my favorite verse.

What a nice and shelter girl Junko (finally learn her name!) is.
And there is a ghost at the school.

Nice and cute first chapter. Junko's ability is similar to Estelle's Houtou.
