    Well since we're going to be getting a lot of those in the future, I thought it would be better to have a thread dedicated to them.

    For now I'll post the new one here:

    And I'll edit this post in the future to include all the side stories released so far.
    Spoiler: Previous side stories and extras

    So with a little more context on this I kinda doubt Griamore has yet benefitted from his trial at all. On the contrary. It seems the spell has reverted him into his past childhood self and literally at that. It is possible that he has no memories of all that happened to his child version now that he is a grown-up again. But talking with his father should make it obvious to him that he failed his trial since that was clearly intended to test his will-power in overcoming his fears and insecurities.

    If Dreyfus trains him now, he will become very strong since he too has an ability highly dependent on will-power. And he is a hard worker, too.

    I wonder if the next one is about Gil getting repeatedly raped by @Nighty the Mighty...I mean Vivi.

    I bet it is.

    Not the rape-part (although she should not have any trouble to do that if she wanted) but that we get a Viv+Gil side story next time.

    I hope she is not being a total nutjob in that one, for a change.

    If you ask Nighty she'll tell you Vivi did nothing wrong and yeah I also think it's gonna be either Howzer or Gil, probably Gil since we're dealing with imminent trouble.

    What if you have a fear of spiders and get turned into one? Pretty easy way to die then despite Merlin saying its used as a joke or prank spell.

    I'm curious about that. Gil saw the ring Gilfrost had, and probably had a hunch on it being Viviann based on that.
    Now, the anime implied this ring was stuck on her by Merlin in the aftermath of the Kingdom arc, and it explictly is there to prevent her from doing certain things.
    Now the problem I have with this is that this has never been indicated as a thing in the manga, and I don't like the idea of having to watch the anime to get my full canon experience.
    So I hope this deal will be explained in the side chapter, or the new volume, for all I care, but just give it to me.

    It's just a prank gone wrong

    I suppose that kiss has awakened a man in a child. :skully

    If this is an actual canon to the story, then Thank god. Welcome back Griamore. :cat

    In a surprise twist, CR is actually giving us the side-chapters too apparently.
    It indeed seems that Nakaba has done these things ahead of time.
    Considering it's a surgery, maybe they've been aware of this for a while, so instead of giving us plenty of extra chapters like we used to, they kinda stored those for future use?

    So, might as well do this like usual.
    Aonang instead of Aonan. "Aonang was born from the mother of chaos".
    CR doesn't imply there is a different way of breaking the spell.

    Are you implying that baby Griamore got a boner?

    Because that would be fucked up....right? Kappa

    Nope, it is just as simple as I can put it in: a simple kiss is what changed a boy into a man.
    Nothing sexual about it. :cat

    I wonder what the next side story will be about. Other than something funny, I hope Nakaba gives us some information, like he did with the Aonan.

    Maybe he could explain how Escanor was able to not transform during the day. I really think it's related to the glasses Merlin gave him, they must be limiters.

    If you noticed each time he transformed, even at night, his glasses broke beforehand (even with Galan). So when he's not wearing them he transforms. And last time we saw him he was wearing them during the day.

    Oh I want to see more Janko, I want to see how she's going to handle things from now on, now that....GUSTAF IS DEAD.:catcry

    I'd like to see her train a bit, to unlock her ability. But it's more likely she's gonna be still depressed.:hm

    I hope she finally awakes her power, the only way she can be somehow relevant is if she gains a hax power, which would bypass PL like Gowther and his mindfuck ability.

    She gained the same ability as Gustaf. :hm

    That's what Guila is saying, that she gained an ability, and it's the same as Gustaf's.

    That's great (althoug predictable)! I wonder if Jericho literally awoke Ice Fang or if it is a slighly different ice power.

    If she teams up with Guila now, they can learn to use Antipode Bomb 1-3, just like in Chrono Trigger XD
