I dunno. I guess they'll be fighting Asuna. Just a guess.
Have to agree with Henchy's earlier statement about this being one of the better mangas out there right now. Also, whoever said the upcoming fight had to be fair
Yeah I believe so too. Unlike Bleach which is currently lagging behind right now... (for me of course)
A fairly good translation for this one as well.
One sentence was weird though, on page 5:
Yue: The only powerful attack that beast has is the "Kamaitachi" we saw back there. And over there in the forest, it had the trees to protect it... / I'm sure the two of them will make it!
Considering the context -- she's answering Emily's concerns, and the previous picture where we see Beatrix and Colette being chased by the dragon in through the forest...
"And over there in the forest, the trees will protect them [Beatrix+Colette] from it [the Kamaitachi attack] ..."
...would make more sense.
That and I don't understand why they censored the "La" in "Laputa", in Konaka's bubble near the end.
I guess I'm nitpicking.
On another note, that chapter was quite good -- a nice ending for the Yue mini-arc.
It's funny that the only people who seem to realize the extent of Yue's progress are her sensei (see c212) and now the class rep. Possibly the headmistress too.
Also, am I the only one to notice that Negi+Ala Albra and Yue's squad might end up on opposite sides, if Negi was unmasked in public ? Like if Asuna accidentally dispelled Negi's age-pill or something. They _are_ considered outlaws after all.
Like Yues squad of cadets can do anything against Negi & co. you are forgeting that mere students cannot match up to Mahora students.
Besides Yue herself is a wanted fugitive, the school dosent know that, how will they know about Negi? The only chance of that happening is the headmaster betraying Yue for money, even then valkeries power level is definately way bellow Negi & co. so unless thea headmaster has prepared high level mages, this is no threat whatsoever.
I said "opposite sides", I didn't say anything about fighting. As for knowing about Negi, with all the media attention around Ostia, there's bound to be wanted posters of him and Ala Albra, but I don't remember if Yue was on the list. And I wouldn't say they couldn't take them down, if there were enough of them and with proper knowledge, like the weak points of Eva's dark techniques.
Still, there's little point in speculating like that, I'll wait and see.
On another note...
I just realized something, re-reading last page of c213. We know there was a huge catastrophe in Ostia during the war. We know there was floating islands, and they crashed -- was that the catastrophe mentioned, or the result, we'll see later.
We saw Asuna a prisoner at the end of the war, used as a weapon for wide area magic cancel. On one other occasion, we saw her power being channeled to another person -- the german demon in Mahora if I remember.
Now I assume a floating island is powered by magic.
Wanna bet she was _used_ in the catastrophe ?
I can't think of a better reason to erase her memories and get her in hiding at Mahora.
Yue is in the bounty list, 15,000 DR. All White Wingers are in the list.
Hmm, if I recall, the academy is neutral. The Valkries were probably hired guns. So no way possible for Yue having to face Negi.
Yue has found out that she is one of Negi's attendents. She is likely assuming that Negi is a cousin of the fighter who calls himself Nagi at the moment.
Asuna, Kokone, Setsunna, and Kaede have arrived on the outskirts of Ostia. Asuna seems to regaining another lost memory.
Takamichi and Mana will be in Ostia for the festival. They will have Donnet with them. Takamichi's and Mana's mission is still a secret.
I still want to know what happen to Haruna and Anya. The two are likely in the company of the Mystery Member. Ken is teasing us over the identity of the Mystery Member. The only clues to the mystery member's identity are
(1) He is a mage like Nagi, and Al.
(2) The dimples on his cheeks.
