Well, that escalated quickly.
I hate how Akamatsu connects different people's speech bubbles. You can still figure out who's who, but it takes a sec longer to process.
I forget, how immortal are the UQ grunts?
>Captcha: ctsRegr water
Anything interesting happen so far? Are Pactios still a thing or is Eva the only thing of value carried over from Negima?
>Captcha: and Gummin
I haven't read Negima.
Everyone's getting raped right now, if that counts as interesting.
>yfw the arc ends without coming back to this girl
It'll come back to her corpse.
How were sales of the first volume of UQ Holder?
These last 2 chapters shit has hit the fan. Hard. This has the potential to be more brutal than anything Negima had.
think they just murdered like two dozen orphans.
>I'll go take a look!
So apparently it was the black kid saying that, not pot-head.
FLYYYY INNNTOOO THE
I'LL TAKE YOU RIIIIGHT INNNTOOO THE
>ken akamatsu manga
so we can just start calling Koromaru a she, right?
Well actually right now it's still "it".
I'm surprised that the MC has such a well grounded dream.
When everyone's an immortal, brutality is a given.
That's the little kid, I think. MC already described his goals in an earlier chapter.
I know. I was talking about his dream of singing in space. It's an admirable life goal.
wild-ass guessing ahead:
what if: that only sealed Touta's current personality and Eva-granted vampirism...
... and his pre-Eva-brainwashing self wakes up. And is Negi's apprentice.
He's so weak, negi at least knew Jovis Tempestas.
That's not a fair comparison. He only started training quite recently and Negi was supposed to be quite talented to begin with.
I would like for Kuromaru to be the big hero(ine) and somehow take care of the bad guys solo, but I'm almost positive that won't actually happen.
>you will never break through Karin's hymen over and over while thrusting into her
The perfect excuse!
this is why I love Ken's fights
A little lower and he would've jabbed Touta's balls.
Holy shit that nun is the granddaughter of irrelevant nun chan from negima.
Wolf guy is pretty much doomed to fight Touta and lose. Karin's busy with Eyepatch, so that leaves the blind swordsman for Kuroumaru.
Is the blind guy also controlling the puppets? Or is that someone else working remotely?
Hey, isn't puppets Eva's schtick?
Is UQ worth picking up/
It's pretty young, so catchup is relatively quick.
I doubt early Negi would have perform better though.
They're not immortal. Only the numbers are. The grunts are just normal monsters.
Kuromaru wants the D.
Or you could not be a piece of shit and just call Kuroumaru a he because that's what Kuroumaru does.
Is she dead?
Serious question, I'm having some trouble following.
Are you guys ever going to stop whining about how UQ isn't Negima 2.0? Jesus.
>Nobody's fucking Evangeline still
negima was pretty harem, but why is it all shota shit now
Because you have bad taste.
Did you not see the tits all over chapter 17?
try reading the chapter
From previous chapters it was established that she's "not permitted to die". We haven't seen anything yet that will leave a mark on her body so even getting shot through the head probably won't do much.
The opponent is still cocky, however, so there must be a catch that we don't know yet.
Or you could just tell me.
It would have taken the same amount of time.
I don't really care about tits from a girl, I want harem of tits
I'm about halfway through the 2nd chapter and I'm not really digging it. Does it keep a pretty consistent tone from ch 1 or does it evolve a lot?
She's immortal. Apparently a Ciel homage, complete with back tattoo. Attacks don't leave wounds on her body, but cause normal pain.
Hasn't evolved much yet.
Made for ryona.
Actually, I guess the pain part isn't 100% confirmed; it's just the eyepatch guy guessing and Karin not replying.
Since there was a mention of someone with savestate immortality were getting the chosen undead in later chapters
If this wasn't the sequel to Negima then I wouldn't even give it a second look the way it is, let's put it that way.
Welp time to fap.
Negima was shit in the beginning, too. UQ has potential. You faggots need to stop acting like Negima was some immaculate piece of work and using it as an excuse to call UQ shit.
So to answer your question, the author is slow in building things up. It's only 18 chapters right now, you might as well just catch up to see if you end up liking it more.
explaining to you what you already should have read is not faster than you reading it yourself
Has it been mentioned how old Karin is?
She is probably the age she looks.
>qt shorthaired girl is attacked by a psychopath
UQ Holder is only good when there's Eva.
Damn it, Ken. Just give us more Eva and shed some light on her past in dealing with outliving most of Negima's cast.
And does anyone know what happened to CanonRap? Are RHS going to continue on HQH or what? His translation is the only decent/better translation out there.
At least there are other immortals she can be with instead of watching everyone she knows and loves die over and over again
>why wont the sequel to a manga that ran for 10 years explain everything to me in the first handful of chapters
They're immortal in the sens od not having a definite lifespan, and probably are a bit more resistant to damage, as they're monsters and the like. They shouldn't have regeneration nor any ability to survive mortal damage like the numbers, though.
>Your grandmother has helped me out once
Depends on whe he wears a skirt or not.
I like this series.
Something about the way Akamatsu does fights still rubs me the wrong way. I can't quite put my finger on it, be the way powerlevels are handled and how characters behave during the fights pisses me off. Maybe it's the ubiquitous "lol we have so much fun fighting" and "lol I'm so pro I maek silly game face all through the fight" attitudes that various characters have during fights.
As for the manga itself, I wish we'd have gotten a slightly older MC (before he got locked into his current age), but that's just me being fed up with shota mcs. At least it's not as bad as Negima in that regard. Setup is cool and can go on interesting directions, though I desperately hope none of the Negima main cast apart from Eva will make a permanent entrance, so they can take center spot in an endless nostalgia circlejerk. Actually, I wish Akamatsu had started a whole new setting. Let Negima rot.
Artwise, it varies between ok and clunky. Seems Akamatsu still relies too much on Poser to do his stuff.
KarinxTouta end is pretty much confirmed at this point, since they will be the last ones alive on earth.
It will be another gay end and you know it. Probably with Kuroumaru/Touta's gay harem.
It is more than likely DaS undead style, that is, respawn point instead of save point.
Why Karin and not another immortal?
Eva said that Karin and Touta have the strongest immortalities so that's why.
a little bored since my day off and starting new series and damn this is pretty good for the first 18 chapters. Shame I read it in a hour.
is this sold in the us?
