    Well, looks like Touta found his roundabout way into the tournament since Eva blocked the original path.

    Afro the Forever is a fucking awesome name. :lmao

    lol @ Ikku trolling Kirie in the end of the chapter and Kuromaru also getting caught up in it as well. :haha

    Haha, that was waaay to convenient xD

    Anyway, at least we know how he'll get to S rank now. Wonder when and how the others will get wind of this (probably they'll check some feeds and see Touta fighting!).

    And what does that dude mean with "teaming up"? :D He just wants to get in but he can't fight for shit.

    It's interesting that he's an app maker. It's full of possibilities, even if he's not able to use them himself.

    I foresee custom apps invented just for Touta.

    Yeah, I also thought of the possibility of him being more like a support type of guy or a manager.
    Wonder how high level those apps can even get.

    You never know, Afro dude could turn out to be someone important in disguise. After all fodder don't latch onto a protagonist without a plot reason. And given he's an app developer, I could see Touta getting some apps to augment his combat, that allows him to defeat the A-rankers and eventually "the king".

    Also, I'm betting that Fox lady will become an ally as well. (Afro will likely be a letch, while Foxy trys to flert with Touta, who is totally oblivious).




    BTW, the silhouette of the A Rankers, one looks awfully like Setsuna. And the 4-armed one, dunno somehow I think of Chachamaru in thruster mode. Never know.

    One more thing, had to chuckle at Kirie's book "Birds and .. (Cats?)" All I could think is she's reading on the birds and the bees. :lmao

    ^Funny thing is Chao was the same way. She couldn't use magic normally, except after saying some code, and even then it caused her tons of pain.

    Chapter 1 also set up that Touta can't use magic apps as well. So unless there are some Ki apps, I don't think we'll see Touta incorporating apps into his fighting style.

    Ah Ken, he sure is always one step ahead of his audience. Knowing we would wonder about Touta and the Apps, and shoot all theories down in one chapter. :lmao

    But I'm curious about the talk about the bloodline. Could it be the Springfield bloodline? Arika's royal bloodline? Or maybe, Ken might surprise us with talk of the Konoe bloodline?

    Those weren't made to be teases though, they were legitimately supposed to be storylines but Akamatsu was forced to cut them out due to time constraints.

    I don't think he's ever implied storylines and not followed up on them unless circumstances have forced him to, so I doubt he'd start now.

    Hmm......Thinking about it.....

    I think it's possible that Touta has somehow inherited Asuna's magic cancel. It may not explain why he can't use normal magic, but it would explain why magical devices explode or malfunction when Touta uses them. It could also explain "the bloodline" the sword was talking about. Magic cancel is a stupidly rare Ostian royalty trait. iirc, Asuna herself never directly used magic, and relied heavily on Ensis Exorcizans, Magic Cancel, and Kankahō. Hell, this would explain why The Lifemaker is so interested in Touta, because he would make a perfect substitute for his plans that would have originally involved Asuna.

    ^But if Touta's inability to use magic was in any way due to possession of the Royal Ostian Magic Cancel ability, he wouldn't be able to use Magia Erebia since that too is a form of magic, even if he's inherited it biologically.

    If it's possible for a Magic Cancel user to intentionally not affect specific magics with their ability, his inability to use magical devices would have to be entirely unrelated to Magic Cancel, or there should be no reason for him to not be able to use them.

    Then again, he might be able to use only Magia Erebia specifically because it's inherited biologically, so it might have simply integrated with his potential Ostian Lineage in such a fashion that Magic Cancel won't affect it, similar to how in Bleach, Ichigo is a natural hybrid between several ordinarily incompatible species due to them gradually developing together along with him and merging over a period of many years.

    Come to think of it... being unable to use magic shouldn't really hinder Touta much considering Magia Erebia will eat any magic anyway and boost him with it regardless. Even if he can't cast anything, people casting stuff at him should still be basically tossing him a power boost so long as it's not more than he's capable of handling.

    Kankaho utilizes magic, though. If Magic Cancel was canceling her own magic, Asuna would never have been able to generate the magic required to use Kankaho. So thats probably not a thing.

    iirc, Kankaho is simply raw mana and ki. I believe it was stated Takamichi used it because he sucked at using magic or something like that. It's not like Magic cancel effected all magic either. As an example, Asuna didn't cancel her own artifact by holding it in her hands, and she could fly with Negi on his staff, albeit while giving Negi difficulty, and touching fate (who I believe she punched at one point) didn't destroy him despite the fact that he's a magical construct.

    Like I stated above above, Asuna's magic cancel didn't cancel all magics it came into contact with. Also, I think that Touta would need to make a magic circle like Negi did to absorb other peoples magic. Magic erebea never really let the user absorb peoples magic without some sort of preparation.

    Mmmm, that is true. I've never liked how inconsistent Asuna's magic canceling abilities were. You'd think her very existence in Mundus Magicus would cause things to unravel around her.

    I find it funny Touta apparently has a problem with Afro forcing him to be his partner when Touta himself kept forcing Kuromaru and the others to be his friends and do male bonding activities. Not so fun when the roles are reversed is it? :LOS

    Also I don't get why Touta is surprised by the combatants appearances. He is already a vampire himself and has met an android, a wraith, and those oni back at UQ Holder's HQ. I really want to know who it was that pierced him with that blood lust. They should make for an interesting hurdle for him if they fight in this tournament.

    Well, Touta not being capable of using magic apps is interesting. He already never used them before and he wasn't taught magic so it isn't that much of a loss. Eva must have already knew about this and it probably factored into why she didn't really expose him to these things.

    Looking forward to the sword explaining more of Touta's origins and hope it isn't just going to be a recap of the stuff we already know about the Ostia bloodline.
