She doesn't get any cool scenes from the early volumes though
What did she do in the series honestly. No screen time, no fight, only being background character
Even the sword has her kiss scene.
How else is someone who devoted her life to revenge supposed to sound like?
That's not the eldritch roman empress sister.
Kyouya, Nero, and Yoshimizu deserve a short story.
Volume 5 is one of my favorite parts of the series other than the fighting. Volume 7 only helped increase my approval of her.
Yeah, Volume 7 seems to be pretty polarizing but to me she did nothing wrong. It only made me like her even more.
I will admit that Volume 6 made Lapis skyrocket up to about the same level as Ouka though.
Marii > Mari
Lapis has her jealous moments afterwards, and given how Takeru needs her in life or death situations, I think her jealousy sometimes strikes as slightly annoying.
In the end, she's still a sword
I'd love a novel that covers some of shit that Sougetsu made him do when he first contracted Nero. Him running around being an enforcer and just fucking shit up.
Anything more of the side characters would be great. They can either make something really depressing with Kyouya remembering the past when his platoon was alive, his time as a Dullahan,
or some casual time after Yoshimizu comes back
He also needs way more art
Kurogane probably has the most in the side character department.
But Sage and tsun-miko needs some visual identification the most. Kyouya only has 1 art even though he's a big deal.
I pray Kyouya's design from the anime is completely different, which is funny because I really liked Nacht's Hero form from the anime.
Kurogane's dual Witch Hunter form would be great to see. Orochi's God Armor was mentioned too, completely white with a black cape.
Something in my gut tells me Mother Goose is going to go meet Kurogane as the new host
I can at least consider that faithful to a degree other than the helmet.
I swear there was a coloured version of this, did Krytyk take it off his site or something? All of the other coloured ones are still there.
The Volume 5 cover and spread are probably still the best illustrations so far, to be honest.
Here's hoping Volume 12 surpasses that.
This image makes me feel like Takeru's design got kinda gimped in the anime. I mean it changes a lot over the novels, but if this is one of his most hardened.
Yeah I feel like he looks a bit too wimpy in the anime. His face is a bit too round, his chin too pointy and his eyes are a bit too benevolent. He was supposed to have really scary eyes even when not mad.
He looks less manly overall.
Oh shit you're right, I only extracted them straight from the epubs, thanks anon.
I gotta say, AntiMagic had my favorite uniforms of any show in 2015.
The test platoon uniforms look fantastic.
Scenes like pic related still looked fine, but there were a lot of scenes that just made me feel like he should look more menacing.
Especially since the author keeps going out of his way to explain just how demonic and intimidating Takeru looks when pissed off.
I'm on Volume 8 and while it feels like he doesn't snap as badly or often, he feels more aggressive and violent in general than his early carefree and goofy personality.
I mean granted with the stakes being what they are that's understandable, but he doesn't really feel mellow.
>Mari was the best girl of 2015
HAHAHAHA very funny anon
You wouldn't make fun of Mari's boobs, would you, /a/?
I don't mind flatness but Mari flatness was a fucking joke.
Like she had actually nothing.
Nope. I think pic related is better.
You mean heresy.
