UQ Holder! 02

UQ Holder

New chapter, new characters.

But first, some bonding moments….

UQ Holder

>be immortal
>worry about voice not breaking
>worry about not going bald
Touta, u wot m8.

UQ Holder

Aahahah Touta, what kind of dream do you have? Those are some interesting worries. On to the new character…

UQ Holder

Ahh, the prerequisite bobcut girl. Slightly reminded of Shinobu from her looks.

UQ Holder

That shyness is more like it! Also, lol dat Evangeline in the background…

UQ Holder

Aw man, she’s named Shinobu too. AKAMATSUU!!!

UQ Holder

So…. not-Fate’s dream is to sing at the Space Olympics and Touta’s dream is to tag along with him? Okay, that’s fine I guess.

UQ Holder

Awwww shiet those age pills man! Those age pills!

UQ Holder

Ahahahaa, so that’s why he wants his voice to break and grow old. True, being Louis Armstrong sounds like a wonderful dream to shoot for!

A slightly less happening chapter from the first, with a more laidback pace as Akamatsu introduces us more to Touta’s character and the relationship between him and Evangeline. The Shinobu-lookalike introduced this chapter doesn’t seem to be in the color pages of Chapter 1 though, probably more of a one-shot character for now. I’m sure a cameo appearance will happen later.

And, to assuage the worries of the haters hardcore lolicons, loli Evangeline is back this chapter too! Man, what would I give to have a supply of her amazing age pills, seriously. And I have to say, Akamatsu’s art sure looks improved in the full body shot of Evangeline. I sure hope she gets more appearances in her original form instead of being in Yukihime mode all the time ww

Touta’s got a pretty interesting character too. He truly has the whole “idiot” shounen protagonist feel to him, unlike Negi who was slightly too mature/smart for his own good at times. There’s good, there’s bad to this approach, but with Evangeline around, it’ll make for an interesting dynamic hopefully.

    This chapter has so much resemblance to the latest Index movie.

    What made me happy is Shinobu’s back and so is Conan Edogawa-like reverse pills for Evangeline (Resemblance to Shinobu’s love hina won’t matter)

    Where is it confirmed that Shinobu is a girl? I will laugh so hard if Shinobu is in truth a boy. :>

    Evangeline using the “it’s magic” line to explain stuff?

    Priceless. Especially coming from someone like her.

    Maybe Arisa will be the opening act if he ever does make it to perform at the top of the space elevator…

    I pretty much graduated from loli Evangeline. Yukihime’s the real deal now for me.

    As long as he throws in a bit of loli Eva each chapter, Yukihime mode will be more tolerable.

    Now to see if this will be a battle turned idol manga.

    Oh it’s those age pills. I forgot about them.

    I thought it was just that illusion magic she was using before, which didn’t make sense cause it worked physically also but I figured you know, magic.

    But yeah, age pills so it’s a real adults body. That makes me feel better.

    Shinobu does appear in chapter 1, where eva walks into the sunset towards a group of people. second from the right.

    Everyone else’s still dead? I still pass.

    Yeah, I think I’m going to make an evil habit out of this. Share my misery until it’s gone, that is, forever! :P

    By the way, that opening image is very Toriyama-esque. Indeed, the whole chapter’s art and feel (I’ve only seen the raws and read the coments here, because my heart still boycotts actually reading the thing. I’m alone at it, maybe, but hey) keep reminding me for some reason of the very early Dragon Ball with Kid Goku and Pilaf’s arc.

    Asuna(a version) is alive, Zazie is definately alive, so is Mana. Setsuna might be alive(ain’t she half tengu?), Chachamaru has a high chance of being around (i’d imagine) and considering how ‘young’ looking the twins were i will not be surprised if they are alive. I’m assuming no one is killed in action.

    and Rakan, wouldn’t be surprised if he is around in one form or another

    Asuna will keep sleeping for several more decades if this is the Bad Future 353 timeline. We have no guarantee Zazie is still alive, and neither with Setsuna, who didn’t hope to live long enough to see Asuna coming back. The twins are actually canonically older than even Chizuru, they just looked loli for a while. Chachamaru would be with Eva after Negi’s death if she was alive too.

    The only ones I’d bet on are Ayaka, who lived until the date when Asuna SHOULD have woken up, and Mana, who was stated to fight in the War that hasn’t happened yet.

    Either way, almost anyone still alive should be presumably too old to take any actual part in the plot.

    why no guarantee with Zazie?
