Nice to see that he was weak because he just wasn't used to the new body.

Nah, he just lost whatever was growing up and probably went back as neutral.

I can't imagine Touta saying she was smoking hot. Is that even an accurate translation?

Arigato gozaimasu anon-san.

>>133944153
He probably said she was kawaii or kirei (pretty)
>>
>>133944226
Yeah I would assume so but why try to characterize Touta as the type to say something like 'smoking hot'. I wish crunchyroll hadn't killed fan translations.
>>
>>133944305
They think they're translating for Murrican teens

Fucking KEN.
>>
>>133944730
めちゃくちゃ綺麗 / 可愛い or すげー綺麗 / 可愛い

Either way works.
>>
The only real reason Kuroumaru wasn't strong enough was because he/she hadn't gotten used to the new body yet, and was still in the middle of changing. Completing the change and adapting to it would probably bring him/her level back up, or even higher.
>>

Kuro pls. Touta's called you pretty as a man several times.
>>
>>133944903
It's better than the female route being disallowed because Kuro would get weaker as a girl, but it's still status quo. Anyway, it's classic Ken so I guess there's nothing to get upset about.

How did I know it was going to be a man?

Anon please, CR manga is actually increasing the average quality of manga translations.
>>
>>133945651
Found the shill
>>
>>133945689
You can argue about CR killing anime fansubs all you like but the scanlation scene is pretty shit, mate. For one hadena in anime subbing, there's at least 20 shit groups in manga translations.
>>
>>133945765
>there are fewer shit sub groups than shit manga scan groups
>because there's only several groups and thousands of scan groups
Wow big surprise
>>
>>133945689
Well at least we get more scans than we had before. Now if only they could stop with the shitty jpgs and sack that other typesetter (the one who's doing Nina and other series). And fucking close the gap of unscanlated chapters of Coppelion, it's been like ten years.

Please just take us to the tourney already. We got our Kitty development, that's the only single thing everyone gave a fuck and wanted to see after Danta's training. Stop it with this half-assed pseudo filler that is going fucking nowhere.
>>
>>133944029
Ugh.
Shit chapter was shit.
>>
>>133945836
And my original post said
>increasing the average quality of manga translations
CR manga means less series being done by shitty groups so yeah, no shit.

Again, stop comparing CR anime with CR manga. The situation is completely different.
>>
>>133946571
CR manga quality is not even that high though and they prevent high quality groups from doing work just as much as lower quality groups. A series like UQ Holder would probably have a competent team so they're having a negative effect here.
>>

They were also usually behind release by a week or two, but such was often the case with Negima as well.

>that's the only single thing everyone gave a fuck

Can we drop this everyone is only reading UQ for Negima shit meme?
>>
>>133946941
I've not read Negima and I'm the person you just quoted.

I could care less about what's her name human girl or the random loli who I think is granddaughter of this other girl from Negima. They both are meaningless padding, even the loli didn't get an actual dedicated chapter to her. And now after some supposed Kuromaru development it turns out it's just back to the status quo. We already saw what Touta was gonna do in regards of Kitty, which I'm sure is what most people were waiting to see the most after Dana training was over. If all we are gonna get is more padding and progress except not really then what the fuck ever.
>>
>>133946849
Other than the image quality and minor choices (ou vs ō), CR and Redhawk were pretty comparable (though I still keep reading RH Nanatsu). And I'd take CR over any niggastream/IS/kissu-like scans. Honestly, I feel like CR manga hasn't been a bad thing, there are so many untranslated series, it just give us an even wider panel from which to choose.
>>
>Kuromaru suddenly changed his dress to a suits
>Forgot to change undies and still wearing a panties
>>
I shouldn't of stopped calling Kuromaru by male pronouns, huh? I just got used to referring to Kuromaru as female, and now he's gone back to neutral? Wtf?
>>
Kuroumaru is still gonna end up as a woman. Just not the kind that needs protection. Bareback Kuroumaru
>>
Hideyoshi Kuro is best Kuro
>>
>>133948833
Hideyoshi is a guy and has a dick, Kuromaru has nothing.

So Hideyoshi got out Hideyoshied
>>
Even though it meant no resolution and continued indecision I liked what this did to Kuromaru's character. He's the spiritual successor to Setsuna for sure.

Regardless of what gender he goes he'll keep Touta's ass in line.

Hideyoshi is the trap and the reverse trap, the penis and the vagina while at the same time being neither of these. The line between genders end with Hideyoshi's breath alone. Calling such a beautiful being by a gender is against the natural rules of life.

Dammit Kuromaru, just be a girl and his partner. This shit isn't complicated

>>133952252
Japan is still a lot bigger on gender roles and gender essentialism. For them, those two roles are in conflict and it in fact is a complicated thing to bridge them.

>>133943840
HELL YEAH MOTHERFUCKER.

That right there is what we call in the business a "Get fucked punched"
>>
>>133944153
>>133944305
A quick check of spoilers says that what Touta said in Japanese was 美人だったよなー. So a more direct translation would be along the lines of "she was beautiful". The translators probably went with "smoking hot" as "beautiful" doesn't fit well with Touta's casual attitude there (or in general).

On a related note, have any of you people actually looked at the translation credits on the Crunchyroll page for UQ Holder? The listed translators are Alethea and Athena Nibley, the same pair that translated the later Negima volumes, and did the retranslation of the earlier volumes for the omnibus release.

It's like that for at least a few other series as well. "Crunchyroll's" translators for UQ Holder aren't their at all. They're Kodansha USA's translators. The translation you see on Crunchyroll is essentially the same as the translation you'd get if you purchased the official US release. The differences would mainly be the occasional error correction, or translation improved by information from later chapters.
>>
>>133943840
Ay its that Gut Punch Tota did in the first chapter
>>
You know. I wouldn't be surprised if Touta/Kuro was the actual ending given that one is a Shinmeiryuu swordsman and the other is a Konoe.
>>
>>133953211
I would be quite surprised if this doesn't end with an Eva end.
>>
>>133953258
I wouldn't. I'd enjoy it greatly if Eva loses again and cements herself as the unluckiest woman in existence.
Also the salt mines would be great for the popcorn but that's more an Eva fanbase thing rather than the character herself.
>>
>>133953339
I think its already set up for her to win. I mean Touta met Eva before Nagi did through time hax bullshit.
>>
>>133953258
This is one of those rare few situations where I think a poly resolution would be a good one.

Note I said poly, not harem. Instead of the Tenchi end where everything revolves around Touta's dick you go with a small group of immortals in a committed poly relationship who trade off partners often enough to keep things from getting stale. Like, Touta and Eva are exclusive for a decade, and then it's the two of them plus Karin for a decade, and then Touta partners up with Kuro for a decade, etc.

Looks like Kuromaru would prefer it if Touta was the girl...

Why are they afraid of the police?

They are probably in the tournament, and getting their faces out would probably fuck them over.

>entire chapter about muh as women I am automatically weak

>>
>>133953339
I'd be pretty alright with Touta/Kuro considering Eva seems fairly happy as a mother figure, and unlike with her Negima friends, Touta/Kuro are actually immortal so she wouldn't have to just deal with her family growing old and dying.
>>
>>133956292
Where does it say that? Kuro is weaker because he's not used to the new body, not because he became a grill.
>>
>>133944029
It's really stupid to expect any sort of romantic resolve coming out from Ken after all those years, isn't it?
>>
>>133956421
There is no win for Eva to lose this, unless she gets killed somehow. Kuro is just another haremette
>>
>>133956492
Pretty bullshit considering his/her boddy was too begin with more feminine than masculine.
Basically anyone originaly thought it was a girl because of the body.
There was not much of change at all, those were simply excuses.
>>
>>133956626
no way*
>>133956590
Love Hina had resolution, only Negima didn't have one. Hr's going to play with his gender trouble till his 16th birthday.
>>
>>133944029
Nah it's done, Kuro will stay as a boy, he'd get boners on touta, but he'll stay a boy.

I can still see Ken going the futa route though.

He isn't a boy.

Nope. They work under Fate, Arms even calls himself Ala Alba. Which makes me wonder why they even attacked Touta in the first place if Fate is working with Eva at the moment. We got too caught up talking about Kuro's gender; what even was this attack? Who's "the boss"? >>133943339

Chao admittedly might have another affiliation (he mentions it when he attacks Kirie and Touta), but that doesn't explain why the other guy is with him if he's a part of Ala Alba.
>>
>>133958000
The boss is Fate.

>>133958209
But that's my point, why would Fate be telling them to round up Touta? He currently has a truce with Eva after the incident with Negi's tournament application.

Though in the same page that other guy doesn't understand why Chao attacked, so maybe they weren't supposed to approach Touta to begin with, but Chao's a lunatic so he did anyway (giving us the convenient narrative for Kuroumaru's resolve).
>>
>>133958487
That's it. They were told not to attack but Chao did because he's insane.
>>
I think its hard to really see Kuro's decision on it one way or the other. In that scene where Kuro at least figuratively gives up the traditional expectations of womanhood there is a good argument to be made that they intend to give it up physically as well. However, Kuro DOES say "Male or female makes no difference" in the end. We really don't know if there's been a true physique change or either or just willpower bs. The guy says he sees a boy, but that could be more of an interpretation based on Kuro's changed attire and aggressive actions.

Not gonna lie though, if its really just entirely a reversal of the last while or so with Kuro's character, and I definitely agree it could be, I'm going to be annoyed.
>>
>>133958894
>We really don't know if there's been a true physique change or either or just willpower bs. The guy says he sees a boy, but

Actually, his body really does physically change. Look here >>133943705 you can see her breast in the bottom panel.

But now he has a masculine chest here >>133943923
>>
>>133947985
He didnt change it.
The clothes he wore were torn to shreds.
He just pulled a coat to cover himself
>>
>>133947985
He's got no junk anyway
Might as well wear panties though I'd stick with compression shorts though I suppose that reveals he has no dick...
>>
>>133959298
Huh, fair point. I didn't catch the cleavage being so blatant in that part. The nips love their sexual identities though so I guess its not too surprising there.
>>
>>133956421
>Eva seems fairly happy as a mother figure
She didn't, if you paid attention, she's been after Touta's dick from chapter 1.
>>
>>133956637
No matter how feminine a guy is, his gravity center is still different from a girl's.
>>
>>133959400
She was showed wearing a panties when she kicked Chao.
>>
>>133958323
This, fuck off Ken. How about trying to sell Touta by his own worth instead of shoehorning negima references everywhere?

BACK TO STATUS QUO
>>
>>133958323
>>133960614
kek. Don't you know it's a Negima sequel? I believe plenty of readers started this for this very reason, and it's advised to read it before UQH. Time shenanigans are not what make him likable? It's a bit late to say that there are too rm-any references only because you dislike a pairing.
>>
Since body modification is a thing in Negima can't Kuromaru just fake his male body for battle while getting adjusted to his female one?
>>
>>133960922
Sure, but that would be clever. Can't have that.
>>
>>133948432
>pronouns
>Wtf

Why does tumblr come here?
>>
>>133947104
You should read Negima, it starts as pretty mediocre harem manga,
but in the last half it becomes a pretty entertaining battle shounen, and it will give you the information you need to fully appreciate UQ.
It's pretty light hearted, and there's pretty much 0 tension, save a few sporadic cases.
I think it's a good read, and if you don't expect much, you could end up reading it with a smile.
Shame for the ending, which sucked, I hope UQ will give something like a flashback on what happened, but who knows.
Time will bring answers, for now let's wait.
>>
>>133960922
The fake bodies are just illusions, kuro still woudn't be able to use chi properly
>>
>>133963644
That's why she should trains more to understand how the female body works.
