It's strange that Touma was able to function for so long despite having eighty percent of his body blown away. He's not Berserker or anything.

But here's a thought. Just before he challenged that crossbow, a power was erupting in his broken fist. Could it be that the invisible the was what was keeping him alive until the very end, allowing him to speak despite lacking the mans to do so?
>>
>>101126706
Well that was pretty amazing.

And to think this arc still has a volume left to go. Not sure I can handle that.

She switched to a completely different method of combat that Touma had not had millions of iterations to perfect a strategy against.
>>
>>101127824
He only learned from the 100% success power of Othinus.

He didn't know the 100% failure patterns as well.
>>
>>101127877
Okay, and the result was this world crossbow?
>>
Othinus get?
>>
>>101127824
Basically, he knew all of the positive cards Othinus would use. That's the Othinus he'd been challenging countless times.

However, when she used a negative card, he got taken by surprise. It's like if someone suddenly took a completely different course of action than what they'd normally do. Anyone would be surprised. Touma had no experience with that kind of Othinus, so he got blindsided.
>>
>>101127940
Yeah, and now she has to be defended against the entire world. I suspect Will-tan will be showing up to provide assistance, though.
>>
>>101127852
Today is a good day.
>>
Touma wants to protect her smile.
>>
Another girl added to the shitty unrequited harem?
Sasuga Kamachi.
>>
>>101128040
As expected of Touma.
>>
So Touma now prioritizes his own desires over that of everyone else in the world.

Well. I didn't expect this but alright, I can hang.
>>
>>101127824
Think of it like this.

Let's say that you were challenging an incredibly tough boss in a video game. After countless tries, you've managed to completely memorize their attack patterns. No matter how long the battle went on or what kind of attacks that boss would use, you'd be able to predict it absolutely perfectly. You would never lose.

But suddenly, out of nowhere, the boss pulls out a attack that you'd never seen before. You didn't even know that this attack existed. Suddenly, everything you'd memorized became meaningless. This one attack takes you completely by surprise and you have no counter for it. You get killed.

That's what happened here.
>>
>>101128005
But how will Will-chan appear?
>>
>>101128076
Othinus and Touma are basically the only two people in the world to understand each other as much as they do, unrequited or not the other haremettes have nothing on her right now. Well, Will-tan is a close second.
>>
>>101128109
Plus it was a attack way beyond anything she'd used against him before. The rest of them were just destroying space and stopping time and shit.

According to the text a railgun stretching the entire universe with a projectile that accelerated for eternity still doesn't come close to describing those crossbow bolts.

I feel like Kamachi wrote that just to be mean to Biri.
>>
>>101128134
The Sisters hitched rides on those missiles.
>>
>>101128147
Touma understands Othinus, but I don't think Othinus understands Touma nearly as well. Unlike Touma, who'd been trying to understand her all that time, Othinus never put forth any sort of effort in doing the same until the very, very end.

If Othinus truly understood Touma, then she wouldn't be surprised at his current actions.
>>
>>101128203
>Implying she won't take over Biri

So do you guys think he's going to team up with Gremlin or no?

They will never know the trouble he's seen.

The lengths that Othinus went through just to find someone to understand her. Jesus christ. You subjected a guy to countless apocalyptic worlds and deaths just so he can understand you a little. Talk about high standards.
>>
>>101128244
No, Thor will show up and go after all the Gremlins and their juicy EXP.
>>
>>101128283
I want to see if he can make Hel blush though. Dead skin and all.
>>
>>101128278
She'd been through that same ordeal. If he didn't go through at least that much, he never would have understood her.
>>
>>101128265
Index III never
Casual vento never
>>
>>101128104
Its more like he now believes his desires matter as well as everyone elses.
>>
So is this going to be considered as part of the Lance of Gungnir arc, or will it stand alone as the Sweet Scent of Othinus arc
>>
>>101128278
And all that Touma went through was based off of her own experiences.

Goddamn, what a shitty life that must have been.
>>
>>101127319
Talking is a free action I guess. Like how Wolverine can complete a speech in mid-air.

Your idea sounds more interesting though. Or maybe Othinus unconsciously kept him alive for a bit since she didn't want to be left alone.

Is Touma going to fight his harem?
Seriously, after how badly he was mindbroken, he isn't even paying attention to his girls anymore, he's totally determined to save and protect Othinus from anyone who tries to harm her. And Birdway, Mikoto and Lessar aren't going to suddenly understand and accept his actions.

>Is Touma going to fight his harem?
He's bought nearly everyone in his harem at least once. Don't see why he wouldn't do it again.
>>
So can Othinus really return to her original world using Imagine Breaker, as is the reason why she tried to drive him into despair for him to suicide and tried to kill him in their battle but remade the world again because he was an unstable, or can she and by extension anything "returning" she does to some other older world she left from impossible as there are minute changes that she can detect?

Is this happening in the current world Touma and Othinus are now in?
>>
>>101129207
Personality-wise yeah. Most important change from this volume is Touma acting primarily selfishly.

Touma doesn't focus on the past dipshit. He completely forgave Accel for example and gave Fiamma a second chance.

She proved she wasn't an evil bitch by returning Touma to his own world instead of trying to reach her own. That's enough for Touma.

Touma, Will-chan and Othinus versus the rest of the world?
Will-chan helping and supporting Touma to repair the relationship that will SURELY be broken after the epilogue of the novel?

Unless he could find a way of explaining all that and immediately bringing an end to the fighting, he would have to fight them, even if just for the moment.
>He could not let the good will of Index and the others bring about unnecessary bloodshed.

First opponnent would be index and mikoto, and of course all of the kammijou faction will fight him now. But only for a moment.
If he can boss rush every monster he fight until now, he literally can be called as a magic god now.

Because he wants to.

Because he doesn't want to see peace brought about by one-sided slaughter.

Because he doesn't want the good intentions of Index and the others to be used for bloodshed.

Because she'd changed.

Because she was no longer a threat to the world.

Because he is the only one in the whole wide world who understands her.

You may think that these are all stupid reasons, but to Touma, these reasons are absolute. Even if the entire world were to become his enemy, he will stay true to his beliefs.

He'd been through that same hell. He has no desire to make someone else experience it, least of all someone who'd already done so once before.
>>
>>101129532
Accelerator and Touma are kind of chill towards eachother if you look at it closely.

All their conversations are short and they tend to talk to other people instead of eachother when in groups. Never any small talk like they have with other characters.

Birdway will definitely oppose him, maybe Lessar too, but I doubt Index or Biribiri will go much farther than questioning him on if he knows what hes doing. Misaka doesnt really have any idea whats going on even before this, the only reason she came along was to prove he could rely on her. And Index knows better than to doubt the TouMAN.

The level of bond and connection Touma reached with Will-chan and Othinus and vice versa in this novel is simply amazing. Something similar, if not greater than what happened in this novel would have to happen to other girl in order to match up to them. They've killed the long competition in just one novel.

NT9 definitely best novel.

He was acting out of selfishness. That's not going full Shirou.

Uh, wrong. He can't win against a normal magician, man. He said so himself. I mean, sure, why not.
>>
>>101129662
He still has the weakened Othinus at his side though.

She's growing weaker but as she is currently she can still apparently universe-bust and tank the combined might of the whole world for a damn long time.
>>
>>101129589
Maybe Will-chan couldn't ever hope win in sheer power, but in a personality contest, she'd wipe the floor with her.
>>
>>101129696
I bet Touma's image of a normal magician is Acqua.

I mean really.
>>
>>101129636
She accepted Accelerator after Touma and the sisters vouched for him, this would be even simpler.
>>
Alright, I'm a bit confused about Othinus's backstory.

So apparently she became a Magic God at one point, creating and exploring new worlds for the hell of it. Along the way, she got depressingly lonely and wanted to go back to her original world because there might have been someone there to understand her. She forgot how to get back, so instead created another world that was "close enough". Then she gave up her powers thinking it was fine. Eventually, she wasn't satisfied with this world anymore and wanted to try again, so she became a Magic God again, causing all the NT plot.

Is that about right?
>>
>>101129260
>Give me good reasons why he should go against the world to save her despite after all that she has done.

Because he wants to. She's changed and no longer the person who wanted to destroy the world. Touma doesn't hold any grudges to what you did to him and as long as you stop hurting others, you're good to go.

Touma has always wanted a happy ending for everyone and now he's even included himself. If doing this makes him happy, you can't stop the man. He's already weighed the situation and this decision was the only one that will lead to the happy ending he wants so of course he's going to fucking do it.
>>
>>101129731
If Will-chan uses the calculation ability of the whole network, she may be able to boost herself to level 5.
>>
Didn't Kamachi say in some kind of interview a while ago that we were going back to England after this arc?

I wonder if Laura is going to be the next boss.
>>
>>101129748
Basically. Though whether she became a Magic God or was always a Magic God isn't clear I believe.
>>
>>101129748
Yes
>>
So now that Touma has calculated God, he just needs Mikoto to become the fourth angel to complete artificial heaven.
>>
>Okay, everyone. It’s time to see a truly lovestruck blonde-haired, green-eyed goddess.

Guys guys, what if Kamachi lies?
>>
>>101129748
>for the hell of it
She wanted someone to understand her. She just forgot what she wanted in the very beginning, and began to redo everything from the very start by going back to said world, but forgot why she left in the first place.

No one was there to understand her in the original world, which is why she changed it.
>>
>>101129774
He said we were going back to England eventually.
>>
>>101129594
Mikoto was initially opposing him when he wanted to save Lindy in Hawaii, plus she endangered her mother. Index's hostility towards Othinus is a hostility she has never shown before. And both experienced the chaos and violence caused by her. They will oppose him. Mark my words.

>>101129810

Touma went through all the hardships she did, thus understanding her. All the world's of suffering she put him through is something she went through.

Granted it's not really explained how she went about getting into those situations, but whatever, right?
>>
>Unless he could find a way of explaining all that and immediately bringing an end to the fighting, he would have to fight them, even if just for the moment.

He will fight the four girls, even if it isn't a long all out battle, the text blatantly implies so.
They surely will be the first ones to fight him, and later the big boys will come into scene.

He understands her on a more general level. He understands her pain, her desires, her will.

you could probably read NT9 without reading much beforehand, and still understand what TouMAN goes through.
>>
>>101130250
You know those worlds where Touma suffered and became an enemy of the world even though he was trying his best to do good? You know how Touma felt so lost after experiencing infinite worlds and apocalypses? You know how Touma became the scapegoat in order for the world to achieve peace? You know how Touma wanted to get back to his original world no matter the cost?

You know who experienced all those things and thought the same as Touma? Othinus. She subconsciously subjected Touma to all those and he managed to meet her hidden desire to be understood.

Man, that volume was 2gud.

>>101129337

She's not dying, just enduring a persistent pain. Like cancer.

He had to know all sorts of things that were not recorded in any grimoire original.

I wonder how Kamachi will do the boss rush. Will he make Touma gain an ally for every boss he defeats? That way, he can arrange the fights to be believable.

He'll first fight enemies that he can survive solo (Mikoto, Index) who'll easily join him. With their help, he can believably defeat the others.

I would prefer it more if he does the whole volume solo though with just Othinus and maybe Will at his side. That seems to retain the mood of "me against the world for the sake of a girl" more.

Yeah, but you have to remember that the girls, or at least Mikoto or Index aren't going to abandon hin, not without fighting him OR asking for an explanation first. Even though I seriously doubt even Index would accept any kind of explanation about the situation Touma and Othinus just experienced.

The backdoor she left for herself to regain her Magic God status can theoretically be used by any human. If she were a different entity, why would she make it accessible by anyone besides her?

It's more likely that she originally got the title that same way in the pure world. Otherwise, she would've narrowed the criteria so that only she could access it period.

Entry 4. Touma doesn't use it respectfully like in option 3, as it's always used with light sarcasm. Unless you want me to believe "ojou-sama" should be used in every iteration it appears in when there's literally no reason for it.

Touma doesn't become bitter from adversity. He actually manages to become even kinder (and more resolute).

What the hell's the point of enduring and breaking through Othinus' machinations if he ends up despair-ridden and grimdark as a result? There would be no point whatsoever to that.
>>
>>101132380
He has changed internally though. You're asking him to be someone else since that would go completely against what he has gone through. His own justice and willpower took precedence here for his own selfish needs at the cost of a happy future.

That is who Kamijou Touma is and has developed into now. I like that Kamachi takes his development up a notch bit by bit. He learned a huge lesson in this novel.

He'll be selfish the same way he's always been "selfish." He'll want things to go fine for everybody involved even if the way he chooses is the most difficult thing for most people. He won't mindlessly sacrifice himself anymore to do it though so that's a big difference.

So from the constant appearance of the NT9 threads I am assuming it is the best arc since WW3?

I don't remember any NT book getting this much constant attention.
>>
>>101132425
The original line was
>true rich girl
The base phrase used is supposed to be taken sarcastically, but 'true' in this case means he's trying to tell people it's an accurate description that she is rich and a girl, in both senses of the word.

Using "milady" wouldn't work in this context, as that's a direct term of address; "princess" wouldn't work because she's not a literal princess; and "your majesty" is even worse.

I agree "rich girl" doesn't work as a respectful term of addressing someone, but in this context, nothing comes to mind that would work better in English. But as an aspiring translator, if I have to resort to using the Japanese word that isn't just an outright name, I'm simply not applying myself correctly or hard enough.

In that case, "upper class" or "aristocrat" might work better. That might fit closer to the original intent than just "rich girl".

The thing is, none of those still work as both a respectful term of address and means the person is wealthy. If that's the case, why not just keep it to the simple "rich girl"? It fits what a "normal" highschooler would call a middleschooler, after all.

Basically what I'm saying is that ojou-sama should be translated to different words depending on the context. While I like the word aristocrat, there really isn't many opportunities to use it in a modern setting, especially not in its literal meaning.

>>101133393
Well for now, who's using that word?

For instance, Touma's a wordy little bastard who tends to use an exaggerated style of speech whenever he's being sarcastic or frantic. It wouldn't be odd at all for him to use obscure terms over simpler ones.

Okay. Just remember that translating stories doesn't necessarily mean using the simplest or smoothest English equivalents. Depending on the context and the character you're writing for, it may be preferable to dig into more roundabout or obscure territory. Even if one word would suffice, it may at times be better to use ten instead.

It's not the same. Touma's line wasn't negative or sarcastic to mean snotty, stuck up, and (typical) rich girl as you want to imply. English readers would associate that kind of character to rich girls they see in teen drama who are like that. But Misaka isn't like that nor are the girls of Tokiwadai, a school for ojou-sama, anything like that. The concept of ojou-sama that Touma is even familiar with comes from manga. So, his image of them is exactly like us: the 4th audience. We understands and know what a typical manga ojou-sama character is like because we are genre savvy.

A TL who translate LN/anime/manga/VN would know that you can't always force a translation. When an equivalent concept doesn't exist or is too far off from the original, it's best to avoid making it awkward or outright wrong.

Within the fan translation circle for mediums related to otaku, using words that are based on Japanese concept is natural and normal to do. But of course, it's good to do so in moderation. Highly popular words that are used over time through LN/manga/VN/anime exposure will become acceptable, even desired to be used in fan translation by fans. That's what happened to twintails, moe, tsundere, hikikomori, onee-sama, onii-chan, etc.

The word ojou-sama can also be a name in the form of a pronoun, you know. Exactly like Kuroko''s use of Onee-sama. Unless you're in serious denial, you know the concept of Onee-sama in the context between a kouhai and senpai (especially how otaku and authors related to otaku culture uses it) doesn't exist in English culture/language. And that's why Onee-sama is generally used in fan translation. It's the same case for ojou-sama.

>He guessed that a real ojou-sama had a habit of

Problem solved.
>>
>>101134509
That's actually a terrible way to translate things.

When you translate something, you should be translating with those who don't know ANYTHING about the original language in mind. This means that you should compromise as little as humanly possible, which means that you should try and limit the amount of Japanese as best as you can.

If there is ANY word or phrase in English that can be used as a substitute for "ojou-sama" then you should use it. That's the professional way of dealing with things. The only times you should keep the original Japanese is when there's absolutely no other resort.
>>
>>101134509
>It's the same case for ojou-sama.
I disagree with that. There's plenty of substitutable words. For example, "lady" is often a word used for a refined or high class woman, but barely anyone uses that way anymore.
>Is that any way to treat a lady!?
>No, but you aren't a lady.

Also:
>He guessed that a true lady had a habit of
>approval of a high-class girls' school
>>
>>101134714
We should just open the "/a/ School of Japanese" and just fucking teach everyone the language.

Imagine a world with no arguments over fansubs or translators being harassed for their particular choice or way of phrasing something in their translation.
>>
>>101134835
Daiz pls. I know one of your ploys to kill fansubs when I see it.
>>
>>101134835
/a/'s a terrible teacher, though. Out of all the questions concerning understanding a sentence correctly I asked in the DJT thread, I think only one actually got a real answer.

Also, no harassment on /a/ would be some sort of bizarro /a/. No sir, I wouldn't like that.
>>
>>101134754
I'd like to see "lady" used more often as well. It's certainly what I'd be translating "ojou-sama" to in most circumstances.
>>
>>101134835
This whole "let's make exceptions for certain Japanese words" is the entire reason shit like "nakama" or TV-Nihon's "kisama-chan-tachi" bullshit occurs.

People treat Japanese like it's some kind of holy language when in fact it's the same as any other language. When a Japanese translator translates something from English, do you think they keep things like "Father" instead of using a Japanese equivalent like "Otou-sama"?

Granted, certain things are understandable. For instance, keeping honorifics is really no different from keeping stuff like "Monsieur" when translating from French. But there's a fine line and sometimes it's better not to go anywhere near it at all.
>>
>>101135041
>When a Japanese translator translates something from English, do you think they keep things like "Father" instead of using a Japanese equivalent like "Otou-sama"?

How many english loan-words do you think Japan uses?
>>
>Just read the entire volume after waiting so long
FUCK. I don't even know what to say. The suffering, that epic fight, them feels, this novel, holy hell.
The perfect world was straight bullshit. After all that death and destruction that thing really hit like a curve-ball outta nowhere. I'd have jumped too, that shit was depressing.

That fight though. Seriously TouMAN, what the actual fuck. That is some insane mental strength to not break down. How can you seriously relive that suffering over and over and not? I mean some of those worlds sounded horrifying. I mean being stuck in a coma til he dies and having to experience it or getting buried alive and slowly decomposing? Holy shit. All to say one damn speech a few words at a time. Dedication right there.

That fucking 2hu shit at the end though. He fucking knocks a damn planet buster out of his way. And he wasn't even trying to really punch her.

And after that, wow. Them feels. The build-up and ending were perfect.

All in all, NT10 WHEN?!
>>
>>101135099
That doesn't really count. Once something is a loan-word it becomes part of the language itself. Japan does some really weird shit with their English loan words too, to the point where they mean completely different things to how an English speaker would use them. You often find that you're translating these loan words to other more appropriate English words when you encounter them.
>>
>>101135144

no need to spoiler stuff in this thread anon.
>>
>>101135099
Loan words are generally only used when there's no other equivalent available in the adopting language. There wasn't a Japanese equivalent for "toilet", so they adopted the English word instead. Etc., etc.

>tfw had it on repeater for the whole volume

Like how they'll use "style" when the character means someone's figure. It's definitely a mutual thing, though.
>>
>>101135194
Japanese does have a word for toilet - 便所
In fact, nearly every English loan word Japan uses has an equivalent in their own language. They just really like English words.

>Some people might still be reading you know.
People should know not to be in an /a/ thread about a latest translation if they don't want to be spoiled.

Honestly, they shouldn't be on /a/ at all if they don't want to be spoiled for anything /a/ related, and sometimes even not related.

I personally generally don't give a fuck about spoilers and just enjoy the ride. Reading or watching alongside /a/ has its own pluses, and you can really only do that once, cause even 1 day later you're a slowpoke.

We often abuse spoiler tags, too, luring unsuspecting victims into traps.

Is it Misaki's time to shine by reading Touma's mind? Is Will going to use a SISTER to testify? Who will naturally believe if Touma told them?

Actions speak louder than words.

Touma gonna show his bitches the pimp hand.
>>
>>101135788
Kind of loses meaning when you realize that Touma's always done what he wants.

The Will pretty much said so from the start. "You've always just been doing whatever you wanted so why stop now?"
>>
>>101135843
Right, but he never did what he wanted entirely for himself, screwing over others that don't deserve it.

He never bought that extra carton of eggs for himself, fuck no, that was for Index.
>>
I don't think anything so tragic as everyone uniting against Touma's gonna happen.

It's like how Touma understands Othinus enough to take her side. There are people who understand Touma to the same extent. The Will of the Misaka Network proves that. Both Index and Mikoto have shown that they have an in-depth understanding of his thought process. Even Shokuhou seems to understand him well enough to side with him in a heartbeat.

The only way for everyone to unanimously become Touma's enemy would be for them to not understand him at all. I think that would be the most tragic thing of all.
>>
So where are now those faggots complained about the NT9 spoilers? I bet they're not living their lives correctly.
>>
>>101135915
I just hope Touma has to emphasize he's not being controlled by punching himself with his right hand.

Yes I know a punch is unnecessary, but I want it.
>>
>>101135915
But half the novel was about how no one ever truly understood him. They never saw the "real" him.

That's low-tier catering mind. Why must fans or people who have some familiarity with those concepts/lingo have to be deprived because of people who aren't familiar? Your average anime/manga fan would already be familiar, so it's not even an issue. People who have zero familiarity can learn and come to be familiarize by watching more anime, reading more manga/LN, etc. We all started somewhere, you know. They can, too.

Really, do I even need to say this? /a/, who hates newfags and people who are ignorant, always telling people off the lurk moar or watch more anime replies.

>If there is ANY
In this case, there isn't..
>professional
>fan translation
Only difference is one gets paid as a job, the other usually does it for free or because they like to. Fan translation has the advantage in being flexible and often caters to the community their translate for. That entails being able to incorporate foreign elements in the translation. On the other hand, "professional" TL are more restricted and usually has to translate in a way that appeals to the masses because they have to account for those who might have zero familiarity. For that reason, there's a greater loss in meaning due to difference in concept, culture, and language.

>>101134754
Lady barely passes for a substitute. It very awkward to use in a setting involving middle school and high school girls. And it's not technically accurate enough since it doesn't have the multiple meaning of young, wealthy daughter, princess (non-royal), or girl who hasn't experienced inconveniences/is sheltered. Not to mention, it holds a different visual image and meaning. The "Lady" of the school? Too awkward and the word "Lady" brings different meaning and implications to mind from English readers. But, the Ojou-sama of the school? Your average or more cultured anime/manga fan would know what kind of character that could be.

>>101135915
Maybe they only think they get him but they don't

>>101135843
>Kind of loses meaning when you realize that Touma's always done what he wants.
He's always done what he wants (make everyone happy) but it almost always excluded himself. Someone in trouble? He'll go to hell for them.

Touma in trouble? "Well, it's no big thing. Here, you can have this escape pod since I have to steer this floating island away to prevent a disaster. Oh an angel? I'll just crash this floating island on to it so I can punch it and save people. I'll just fall into the freezing ocean with a really small chance of surviving afterwards. It's perfectly fine."

Birdway even said it. Why the hell does he always expect to sacrifice himself as if it's perfectly normal? Touma getting angry at Birdway because she didn't think of sacrificing him first really showed it.

It's less about doing what "he wants" and more about fundamentally changing what it is that he wants. Before he wanted everybody else to have a happy ending. Now he's including himself in that number - he's fighting so that he can be smiling along with everyone he saved.
>>
>>101136150
That's why he'll save Othinus

"Okay, everyone. It’s time to see a truly lovestruck blonde-haired, green-eyed goddess."

That plus Touma vst the world, NT10 will be a fun ride.

Will? or Othinus?

If she understood Touma, then she wouldn't have been surprised when he saved her.

Touma spent all those thousands of fights trying to understand Othinus. Othinus, on the other hand, never made any effort to try to understand Touma until after he lost the final time.

She understands him even less than Index and Mikoto do.

Until he was put into a situation where he had to sacrifice himself completely. He got cut off and wasn't even allowed to see others happy.

We realized he's human too and wants to be happy himself by at least being able to see other people or get a chance to interact with them. Othinus put him in the worst situation by taking even that away. Will was worried that he'd be the perfect saint and not show any regret about it. Good thing he did.

>Why must fans or people who have some familiarity with those concepts/lingo have to be deprived because of people who aren't familiar
It's all a matter of tastes, but no able man who takes the hard route respects the able man who takes the easy route. Also, the use of the word 'deprived' reminds me 'brainwashed'.

>It very awkward to use in a setting involving middle school and high school girls
No, it isn't. You do realize there are "(Name) School for Young Ladies", right? There's also the stern phrase of "young lady!" comes from.

>since it doesn't have the multiple meaning of young, wealthy daughter, princess (non-royal), or girl who hasn't experienced inconveniences/is sheltered
It doesn't have to specify every exact meaning in every context at any given time, but luckily, English is a very verbose language. We can just say "sheltered young lady" when we want to mean all those.
>>
So Mikoto's getting ready to fire gigantic electromagnetic cannonball.

Is Touma gonna somehow hold that in place while someone-or-other confronts Gensei?

>>101136275

What are you talking, she knew him like a book and that's why she was able to pick at him for his faults and misguided perceptions on good and bad.

Did Touma think that his friends would literally kill him, or was this more of an "Oh, man, my mom's totally gonna kill me" sort of thing?
>>
>>101136275
Othinus is the only one (Will might be an exception) that can begin to fathom what Touma just went through and vice-versa. With regards to those things, no one can relate to him like she does or to her like he does but only for those aspects. Those things are pretty big though.

The experience of being sacrificed for the world, of getting lost and suffering countless times, of being hated by the world despite doing good, of wanting to "go back home."

Just like how Touma was still surprised at her decision to give back his world despite spending the whole time trying to understand her, she's surprised that he'll fight the world for her who made him go through all that. It's obvious that they don't understand each other completely but I think it's better that way. It retains the message of "no one knows the real you" BUT you can keep trying to reach that point. It's a continuous process and all that.
>>

Some would hate him, if they cared more about that lost chance than about Touma committing sudoku.
But they care about Touma anyway, so they'll get over it.
>>
You know, at first I found it odd how Othinus didn't simply erase Touma the moment she decided to end everything.

But then I realized something. In all of human history, has any god ever simply "willed" a human out of existence? No. Whenever a god wanted a human dead, they always used a more physical means to do so. Whether it's striking them down with lightning or sending someone to do the deed for them or manipulating events to ultimately result in that human's demise, it's always a solid, physical method.

If Othinus had chosen to simply erase Touma in an instant, then she wouldn't be acting like a god at all.

Also, it's possible that she was holding back because subconsciously, she didn't want to just go and obliterate him just yet.
>>

I was thinking that as the explanation for why he survived so long after losing most of his body. She didn't want to let go of him just yet. Or maybe Kamachi just can't into brevity.
>>
>>101137518
The latter is confirmed, she was wavering over which world she would create the whole time, it was only after Touma died that she was sure of her choice

What if NT10 begins with Mikoto asking "He's doing that thing again, isn't he?" and Index replying "Yep" and then they both give a sigh of resignation?

>>101137541
Think of one of those bullet hell shooters where you have to weave through dozens of bullets.

Touhou's that sort of game. One of the gameplay features of Touhou is the grazing system, where you basically "touch" bullets without getting killed by them. This is possible because the hitbox of the playable character is considerably smaller than the actual sprite, so even if it looks like the sprite is hitting the bullets, as long as the hitbox remains untouched, it's fine.

Reimu is the protagonist of Touhou, and she has the smallest hitbox in the series.

They will fight him but maybe only for a moment while confirming if he still sane or not. (From the point view of everyone in that world, the situation was too absurd for touma to protect othinus now. They will suspect that there is something wrong and will fight him to confirm touma's condition).
As you said, they will always becomes touma's ally but not if they think that touma is being brain washed.

She can't erase IB. She could kill Touma, but that would cause IB to transfer to something or someone else, and she might not even know where it'll end up. And she needed IB to restore her original world (at least until she gave up on that dream when Touma refused to break).

Level 6 = Magic God. But it doesn't matter because Level 6 is just a ruse, anyway. Aleister doesn't even need a Level 6, and he has already surpassed LPSaD.
>>
Hey js06, Now that the images are up, could you translate the cover and contents page?
>>
>>101145346,8
Looking at it though, I'd say that ironically, the actual magic god was far more powerful than LPSaD.
>>
>>101145346,3
I posted this before but I think I'll post it again.

I just realized, the novel mentioned 10,031 deaths after Touma and Othinus had gotten into an uninterrupted conversation just so they can specifically show that

a) Touma suffered for every clone he couldn't save
b) Touma had a fight with a god more times than Accelerator fought a clone of a level 5

Then Kamachi raised the bar about several million times more just to show how big the difference in scale Aleister was thinking in. It took 10,031 battles and deaths + several million more for what Aleister wants.
>>
>>101145346,11
Don't you mean Othinus?
>>
>>101145346,12
Who? The one whose scale was very large? I really meant Aleister.

If people thought that 10k fights with a clone were a lot, this was to correct their notion. In reality, 10,031 was just a drop in the ocean compared to what was necessary in order to begin to understand a god. Like it wanted to show us - 10,031? That's nothing. Here's Touma fighting a god instead of a clone 10,031 times PLUS a gorillion more where he died countless times just to get to the fight. He did all that and only began to understand a fraction of god.
>>
>>101145346,13
I see what you mean.
>>
I know this sounds ridiculous, but what if Kamachi starts to develop a serious relationship with Touma and Othinus?
She's the first girl that Kamachi openly and directly acclaims to be full deredere for Touma. She's also the the girl with most shared time with him, and that will not change even for the rest of his life.
>>
I was thinking that maybe chapter 5 through 6c represent Touma's five stages of grief, for the loss of his world. Denial it's the dark world, anger the ruin world, the beta world is a sort of bargaining, than depression accumulates throughout the successive worlds and the last stage is when he accepts the happy world and decides to suicide.
>>
>>101145346,15
There are two ways you can show your love for someone:
-As a significant other
-As a person
Kamachi may be insinuating the former, but I think he intends to write the latter. If anything, I think his portrayal of the former in terms of our MCs will be contained in the bond between Shiage and Rikou.
>>
>>101145346,15
I want to see them be more of an Arararagi-Shinobu relationship than the Hitagi one. If she gets reduced to just another harem member, it's kinda lame.

And this may sound silly but I also want Othinus to become like Sphinx. A constant in Touma's life who's always there and who Touma cares for. You know how Index gets jealous of Sphinx because Touma treats it well? Kinda like that. Together for life but not necessarily romantic. Just comfortable with one another as if being together was the norm. Othinus was happy just being in the same world as the person who understood her to the point of accepting death. I'm sure she'll be happy just being together.
>>
>>101145346,18
I think that's what he might be aiming for. There is a serious 3rd and more important heroine implications going on. She may love him as pointed out in the afterword, I can't interpret "lovestruck" any other way, but one the other hand she is also content with the only person that understands her exists in this world and that makes her happy that she is with him. Likewise in Touma's perspective.
>>
>>101145346,18
The problem will come when she decides to move to AC and Touma's dorm. She'll become overly attached to Touma and Index wouldn't accept that. And if Mikoto hasn't realized Index lives with him, it'll be obvious when both cling to him all the time, generating more chaos. Kamachi would have to write something brilliant in order to not let her fall into another haremette tier.
>>
>>101145346,19
>>101145346,20
Othinus becomes the new freeloader at his place and Index is taken back to England. Problem solved.
>>
>>101145346,20
>Kamachi would have to write something brilliant in order to not let her fall into another haremette tier.

That one seems easy. Just have Touma and Othinus remain extremely chill with each other. Like when they get confronted about their relationship, Othinus will casually reply "He's someone who understands me" while smiling. No blushing, no stuttering, no falling into an argument with anyone. Just have that one line stop any further questions.

If Touma gets asked, he can calmly deny their relationship as not being like that but he can't describe it. He can still fall into the usual harem antics with the other girls. Just portray Othinus being there as something normal like seeing Sphinx there.
>>
>>101143671
>doesn't make sense
But it does. The Will already talked the breaking of all his close relationships, Touma preparing to fight his allies, the narrative describes hostility that they have never shown before towards Othinus, Kamachi says he will fight all the monsters he has dealt with before and they fit in that criteria as well.
>>
>>101145346,22
Yeah. And just because they hold something special no one else knows about, doesn't mean it must be serious 100% of the time. It allows room for comedy, to see Othinus' superiority complex in a different light.
>>
>>101145346,24
Yep, that's why I keep thinking Sphinx with regards to the feeling she should give off. Sphinx being there is natural and Kamachi even uses it as part of the comedy. No one asks "Why is that cat still there?" They go, "Oh it's Sphinx" without getting jealous, angry or making a big deal. Both for in-universe characters and the fanbase.
>>
>“If this was a truly perfect world that can’t be cracked no matter what, it might be okay to try to do something. After all, I’d know it would fail. But if there is a contradiction in this perfect world and there is a foothold toward breaking through, I definitely can’t go along with that! After all, they might reject all this. They might reject this happiness that they could normally never get back again! I can’t make them do that!!”

What does Touma mean when he says this?
>>
>>101145346,25
Yep. Heck it may be one-sided in the love dept. But she ain't complaining. For now though, I want to see how Touma is going to battle it out with his friends + convince them otherwise. Will be good.
>>
>>101145346,26
Continue reading but if you already did and still didn't see it.

The contradiction is that they're all happy but only because they don't remember their original world. If it was truly a perfect world, they'll remember the original world but still be happy. Touma fears that if they get reminded of the original world, they'll reject the happy world to save Touma and Touma can't allow that. Othinus is afraid of that too so she made them forget him.
>>
>>101145346,25
Except I don't think anyone would not question what happened between the former greatest world's enemy and Touma to suddenly become so close and chill one another. It's never going to feel natural. Any kind of explanation will be taken as ridiculous bullshit, except for the girls close to him.
>>
>>101145346,28
Okay then.
>>
>>101145346,29
That'd be the beauty of it. There are these 2 unbelievable people who are perfectly comfortable with one another, just staying in the same room as if it's normal. Ending the world? Infinite loops? Countless deaths? Those ridiculous thing are no big deal for them. Actually, the ridiculousness of their situation helps make the portrayal of their "relationship" better. To remain chill despite being under the greatest pressure, won't that be great?

I think it'll only work though if it's non-romantic. They can use it as material for comedy like making the other girls jealous or Othinus having a superiority complex but it shouldn't be the usual "doki doki" situations for the 2. If I had to compare it to something, it'd be like the relationship of a couple who's been together for 60-70 years. You know what I mean? Being together for so long it just feels like a given.
>>

It isn't that ridiculous. The basis for it has been firmly cemented in NT9, being extremely more concrete than what the other girls have. Harem antics will continue though, that's unavoidable.
And I feel like the small possibility of Touma getting with a girl at the end of the story was just shattered with this novel. The ships have sunk. Othinus (and Will-chan) are most likely going to become a lifelong partners for Touma.
>>
>>101145346,31
>Touma being compared to an old man in afterword
It all makes sense now.
>>
>>101145346,31
Now it sounds better when you put it that way. But I think Othinus might want to experience romance and love, as part of the process of living with the only person who can understand her.
>>
>>101145346,34
I don't think it's undeniable she will have her moves, but for the majority of their interactions in regards to their relationship, they have a deep understanding between themselves that they won't throw out or she wont intentionally do it to piss off the other girls.
>>
I have the feeling NT10 will be even better than this one. Mark my words.
>>
>>101145346,36
suck my dick dude.
>>
>>101145346,37
Is this what the thread becomes when it dies down?
>>
I don't have time now, but anyone OK for doing an
Othinus fanclub?

Mainly about keeping references to wallpapers and stuff. I love Othinus. Give it to me. Now. Please
>>
>>101145346,39
just keep tabs of pixiv.
>>
>>101145346,40
I think I've seen stuff not on pixiv. Is it possible?
>>
>>101145346,23
There's also Touma's foreshadowing a fight against Index.
>>
>>101145346,42
Nor did he like what Index said.
>>
>Graduation parody SS
>Mikoto has been a 1st year at Touma's school for his entire 3rd year
>He's somehow so oblivious that he only notices on the day of his graduation

>>101145346,9
I'll have that done later today.
>>
>>101145346,44
Amazing.
>>
>>101145346,44
Sasuga Kamijou-san.
>>
>>101145346,44
Being Mikoto is suffering.
>>
Was it ever clarified whether Touma was a second year or first year?
>>
>>101145346,48
He is currently a first-year, no?
>>
>>101145346,49
I always assumed he was a 2nd year because he's supposed to be 16.
>>
>>101145346,50
He's probably going to be held back a year anyway.
>>
>>101145346,50
He's a first year. Being 16 just means he's on the older side of his year.

>>
>>101145346,52
There we go. So when Mikoto eventually joins, two years with him. Lets hope he notices her in the canon.
>>
>>101145346,53
I thought Mikoto was a second year, so that still means only 1 year with him.
>>
>>101145346,54
That's correct. Hence why in the parody, she's a first year in his school while he's a third year. And it makes no difference that they're in the same school because he doesn't even notice.
>>
>>101145346,54
Oh yeah. Wait then Kuroko is a 1st year in Middle School?
>>
>>101145346,55
He should still have seen her at some point during lunch breaks while buying lunch. Damn it, Touma stop talking about bunny girl colors, you're getting too distracted.
>>
>Damn it, Touma stop talking about bunny girl colors
The colors of bunny girls makes for a great philosophical and cultural debate. Have at you, sir.
>>
>>101145346,58
What debate? White is obviously the most thought provoking color for a bunny girl.
>>
>>101145346,59
Tsuchi pls. Touma would break that fucking illusion so hard.
>>
>>101145346,44
Thanks. Oh and did you look at that OnC scan? Is that an actual story, or just characters talking about random shit
>>
>>101145346,61
It's the characters discussing some of the real-life locations used in the series as well as Kawakami's original character designs (which are always hilarious).

Thanks man.
>I am slowly drawing in the back country of Hiroshima.
Is this all Haimura says.
>>
>>101145346,64
Yes. He hasn't changed it since NT5.
>>
>*5. *14,542 132,181 Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament Vol.9

Anime soon, please.

The usual guy finally did his NT9 scans, but he didn't stitch all of the black and white spreads completely. Should I toss them up on BT anyway?
>>
>>101145346,67
Yes, reupload them when the cleaner anon comes along again.
>>
>>101145346,68
Oops nevermind. Looks like ultranova already got to them.
>>
>>101145346,66
NT9 would be more censored that volume 2's adaption was.

And JC Staff would likely fuck up adapting it.
>>
>>101145346,70
I don't care. I don't consider it that awful of an adaptation as there's tons worse. I like the anime a lot and I think the manga, light novel and anime compliment each other well.
>>
So is Ollerus still dead?
>>
>>101145346,72
Fairies are living creatures too, you know.
>>
>>101145346,73
Wasn't he blown apart by Othinus' fairy attack as well?
>>
Why was Misaka 10031 peeling apart in her last scene?
>>
>>101145346,75
Othinus' spell didn't work on her, but she was still connected to the new Misaka network. Basically, she was being overwritten with the new ones, effectively destroying her.
>>
>>101145346,34
>>101145346,35
> Othinus constantly having casual skinship with Touma
> Leaning on him
> Looking over his shoulder and resting her chin on it when he's reading something
> Basically acting similar to an affectionate cat
Kamachi please do this
>>
>>101145346,77
(Though he probably had all of NT10 written even before NT8 came out, that Kamachi.exe.)
>>
>>101145346,63
Thanks a lot.

Typesetter anon, are you here? Here are the two images.

I forget, why did LO go to Accel for help again?
>>
Haha time for automated batch spamming.
>>
>>101145346,80
So he can contact a researcher who can put her back in an incubation tank since she isn't supposed to be out yet.

I take back what I said, Accel tonight.

>>101145346,83
T-Thanks
>>
>>101145346,83
And they're uploaded. Thanks a lot.
>>
NT9 pdf where?
>>
>>101145346,87
Baka-BT now has a PDF generator.
>>
>>101145346,88
>baka bt
>>
In a pdf file, how does one make one page a single image? You know, like the ones that the anon used to do.
>>
Someone started a new thread. >>101196297

Should we head over there?
>>
>>101145346,91
Yeah, sure, whatever. You do the code and shit.
>>
>>101145346,92
Will do. Let's go.
