OK, raws are now up - posting
Dumping as fast as I can.
Doesn't Natsume look Yanderish to you in the previous pic?
>Doesn't Natsume look Yanderish to you in the previous pic?
This new chapter basically make her a borderline antagonist. It is very obvious she tricked Katsumi into doing her work for her.
Poor Tanpopes. I wonder is she's screaming internally?
I genuinely think Katsumi's mental degradation is worsening. We have semi-proof that Witches tend to be a little nuts, and this chapter just makes Katsumi look like she is a naive child who has more power than she know how to use and get herself into trouble. In the end she isn't the Mastermind type, she just isn't clever enough.
dat nekko wallpaper in Tanpopo's room...
>It's like giving a loaded gun to a child. She simply has no idea of the consequences of her actions.
Although now that we know she was being guided by Natsume, we see that she only managed to do this much damage because it was intended. It seems her magic skills are just not refined enough on her own, she is just an apprentice after all.
Looks to me that even Kasumi cannot believe this bullshit's happening.
-[This is something that happened just before the semester's closing ceremonies. I stole away from Kagari-san's sight and made a certain promise with Natsume-san.]
-Sure, once vacation starts, we can meet with my Mother. I'll make some kind of arrangements.

-Sorry 'bout that...It's just, keeping it a secret from Kagari-san seems like it'd be difficult...
-[Kasumi-chan was packed away in her room along with those girls with the ears, and they were getting up to something or other. It was a bit ominous, since they'd just
been fighting with us a while ago.]

Fair warning, it's going to be slow as I do it when I can around at work.
Oh Hono-kyun, he doesn't realise he HAS no "away time" from Ayaka, Atori sees all.
Not yandere-ish, more "holy shit, you're asking me to piss off Ayaka AND get near my mom?!"
Natsume is looking fairly cute now.
Except for the freakish eyes. It would be like staring into the abyss.
Nevermind... looks like Kasumi has decided to go along with it and enjoy the ride
>Not yandere-ish, more "holy shit, you're asking me to piss off Ayaka AND get near my mom?!"
Natsume might genuinely be a contender here. Keep in mind that she is the espionage specialist and as such, has a habit of doing dodgy secretive things. If her own brainwashing is still around despite her knowing about it, she could still be trying to get into Honoka's pants. And unlike Kasumi, she is smart enough to be subtle about it.
For fucks sakes Tanuma-chi, chew with your mouth closed!

-::T.Note - I'm not doing the whole omikuji, I can't read 90% of it. Suffice it to say, Honoka has "best blessed luck", and the friendship area of his fortune says "You should get along well with those with "ears"::

-[Chapter 41: Takamiya-kun And DIO's...err, Kasumi-chan's World (Opening Act)]
I love Ayakacchi's cosplays, so much. The <mae-hen> subtitle usually denotes this is part 1 of 3, especially since next month's seems to be subtitled (middle act)
Yet another shot of Tanpopo screaming internally.
Looks like's manlet's training is kicking in and interfering with the brainwashing. Ayaka would be so proud.
The many faces of Ayaka... and one pissed off Timpopo-chang.
Is this a dream or a nightmare?
>Looks like's manlet's training is kicking in and interfering with the brainwashing. Ayaka would be so proud.
Well he is basically brainwashed a third time. First was when he was a child, 2nd was his night brainwashing that Ayaka hired the KTMM to do when he was sleeping, and now this third brainwashing with the pocket universe probably clashes with the two prior acts.
No idea what's going on here. But at least Kasumi is doing her time with Tanuma-chi.
Honoka looks pissed. Very uncharacteristic of him. Kasumi is spilling the beans.
-Kasumi-chan, it's morning!
-C'mon, time to wake up.
-Good morning, Onii-chan.
-You coming in here to wake ME up's pretty r~are huh.
-What're you talking about? I do it every day, don't I? You're still half-asleep, aren'cha.
-Come on, that's why I head on down, wash my face, and change in the bathroom all in advance.
-((Was that how it was?))
This chapter may as well be called Kasumi-chan's acid trip. All those mario mushrooms and bears and dear lord.
And I like how Tanpopo is involved in his re-awakening. I do wonder why though... Thisd entire chapter could have done without Tanpopo at all, it seems she is definitely getting unusual special treatment.
Now, I know she is author's favourite, but it is still unusual that Tanpopo is getting screentime in a manner that seems... suspicious. I mean,
Kasumi actually specified having Tanpopo present as their house cat. Why does she even bother to do that at all? That is a lot of work for no obvious reason, unless she genuinely believe her ideal family has Tanpopo in it?
.. and here we go - the true mastermind behind all of this. What were her reasons? Was she trying to be nice to Kasumi? Did she want to get Honoka all alone to herself for some nefarious reason? Is she working with her mom on this?
Poor Macarron. Literally a macarron.
>.. and here we go - the true mastermind behind all of this. What were her reasons? Was she trying to be nice to Kasumi? Did she want to get Honoka all alone to herself for some nefarious reason? Is she working with her mom on this?
Kasumi really just HAS to be a retarded naive child to fall for this. And really, we know she IS a retarded naive child. Which makes Natsume seem like a rather dark character from that alone. Kasumi is being used, and that really isn't nice.
This is the page where we found out Kasumi had to conserve magic to increase the longevity of the pocket universe. This means getting rid of unnecessary people. But she actually decided to add Tanpopo because... why? Most interesting.
Note the gloves. I'm starting to be convinced that that whole family can't help but fuck with people's heads. They may not even have a clear set of plans or ambition to do it for a common or overarching goal anymore, what with magic powers getting in the way of common sense. I actually blame magic.dll for this, the glimpse we got of KW didn't show any signs of that inverse relationship between magic power and sanity.
Every family needa a Tanpopo.
NO TIME TO EXPLAIN - GET ON THE BROOM
Yep, the world is imploding. Jesus, what else can go wrong?
.. and back in the real world, Ayaka is indulging in one of her favorite past-times - torture.
That pot may look innocuous, but I'm sure in Ayaka's hands, it's worse than waterboarding, no doubt.
Special Agent Atori is now on the case.
And now, Other Best Girl makes a cameo
And if it ain't Weekend, making a cameo also - it's like everyone's invited for the new arc. And that's it. I'll post the rapidshare link shortly.
>That pot may look innocuous, but I'm sure in Ayaka's hands, it's worse than waterboarding, no doubt.
It is some sort of special dish that needs to be cooked all night that Star Team had made.
It is amusing that Witches seem to not care about physical harm that much. So you had to be creative if you want them to submit.
-W~ah! What's this gorgeous dessert spread all about?! They all look delicious!
-Were we celebrating something today, and I just forgot?!
-But this's ALWAYS we we have for breakfast, silly, isn't it?
-C'mon, eat up.
-Something strange is going on here.
-I mean, the table's a mushroom, and the chairs are tree stumps...The entire KITCHEN feels out of place, and...
-Onii-chan, where's Mama? And the Princess, and Kitty-Ears...
-Mom? Dad came back from his overseas job posting in New York and they went on a trip, now didn't they?
-They said it was their 101st honeymoon.
-((What's THAT all about?!))
-And, what was that about a Princess? Well, I have no idea about that, but if it's Tanpopo-chan you're talking about, she's relaxing right over there!
At least she questions it.
And there are some penguins snuck in among the bearsserts. I wonder if she just opened up a portal to yuribear world?
And we get our first official confirmation about Takamiya-papa, apparently.
I swear, Medusa and the rest of KMM better come back soon
>And we get our first official confirmation about Takamiya-papa, apparently.
Basically now we know they had a dad. Up to this point it was possible they never had a father and they were literally brought into the world by giant magical storks. Stranger thighs have happened.
He's real. He exists.
And apparently, no one other than Komachi seems to give a fuck, not even his children. Proof that Takamiya Pappa is nothing more than a mob character in this series.
> yfw he's the final boss
I wouldn't put it past her to make a joke like that. Subtle isn't quite what this series goes for.
The last thread mentioned that Sebastian was absent for Chronoir's cameo... I guess she has other familiars? That one she was with looked closer to the dragon that fucked her shit up back on the bus where she ambused Ayaka&Honoka than the knight of crocs.
Damn. At least put Kanna back to meet Tanpopos again.
Going to work now, will be posting sporadically as I get the chance throughout the day. There are some other interesting tidbits then what we've mentioned too.
Like, the last page, Honoka asks Natsume in dramatic fashion "who could be behind this?" in response to things they've been discussing, and then the next panel cuts dramatically to 3Black6 yawning.
Also, just something I noted now, T-papa in NYC, which is always on Macaroon's tummy isn't it? Maybe a gift from him through Honoka somehow?
bestbros need to reunite, but i'm pretty sure tanpopes is a defacto Takamiya at this point
I knew Natsume was too normal for a witch - she HAD to have some major personality defect to fit in with the other witches. If Mizugani-sense is consistent, her actions will be less likely to be based on Malice than something silly and trivial.
Christ, I now wonder what she's holding onto.
Impossible Kasumi is so pure she dosn't even know where the stork gets the babies and Honoka would never do anything indecent to his own sister. Well anyway I liked the chapter.
>bestbros need to reunite, but i'm pretty sure tanpopes is a defacto Takamiya at this point
That's what is being secretly push forward this chapter; that somehow for Honoka and Imouto, Tanpopo is already family. Which may make Medusa's return very problematic for Tanpopo.
I wonder what they're gonna have her do. Most likely will involve the reality manipulation powers... but the cloak and dagger to reach her seems a bit much.
-?! THIS is Tanpopo!?! That's some kind of amazing evolution she's gone through!
-((There's almost no trace of her former apearance!))
-Where are you going, Kasumi-chan?!
-(Both the Princess's and Kitty-Ear's rooms have changed into storerooms. The layout of the house is a bit different too...)
-(Onii-chan's also acting strange...)
-(What in the world is...?)
The 'evolution' here is the same type as in pokemon.
-(Are you telling me...)
-(...this is because that spell succeeded?!)
-Welcome back, Kasumi-chan.
-Uhm...Are you staying home from school today?
-...I'm fine. I was just a bit sleep-addled is all.
-Not forgetting anything?
-Nope! Let's go.
-...Wait! What's the big idea just up and holding hands!?
-Eh? It's just like we always do, right? ...You're being so weird~ today, Kasumi-chan.
-A...Always? ......Is that so.
-...In that case, there's just no helping it! I mean, it's what we ALWAYS do!
Kasumi has created a world of LEWD
-(.....Onii-chan's hand, it's surprisingly big...)
-(...Still, this really turned into a LEWD world, didn't it~.)
-Ah-! Tanutanu?! This isn't what it looks like...!
-Good morning, Yoshiko-chan.
-Ufufu, as usual, you guys act SO close to each other, Kasumi-chan!
-It's not like we act THAT close or anyth~iiing!
SHE said it, not me. Also, the journey through stooper mario world continues.
Before Kasumi even made that comment about Hono-kyun's hand, I actually found myself thinkin he looks taller than usual. I mean, usually he's around Ayaka, and Kasumi's always been shorter than him, but he's taller than Natsume too. Probably just a comparison thing, but he might be gaining a bit as the seals break.
-(So...So THIS is the school, huh~? It's got H~UGE cones attached on top of it...)
-(Even though it's time for school to start, it looks like we're the only one's here, huh.)
-Kasumi-chan, where're you going? You're over here aren't you?
-Eh-....Ahh, that's right, isn't it.
-(My shoe box! YES!!)
-(It's right next to Onii-chan's!)
-(I'm gradually started to get used to how this world works.)
-(So this is our classroom, huh~?)
-(WAH-! There are only FOUR desks.)
-(For me, Onii-chan, Tantanu,...)
The word she uses for 'cones' is <kasa>, like those straw hats that Raiden wears in Mortal Kombat
-Why good morning, everyone.
-Well then, let's begin today's lesson.
-Open to page-68 in your math books and--------
-(........I'm neighbors with Onii-chan...)
-(And in the same class...)
I love Natsume's more aid back hair in here.
And what the fuck is that thing on the roof. The rest of cool-world had bears and (dead) penguins, but that's a world eater.
-(IT'S LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE!)
Embrace the weirdness for love
>you now realise that from the point on where the anime ended to the recent chapter nothing of importance to the plot happened.
There are only shitloads of foreshadowing and hints towards what happened in the past and what will happen in the future but nothing has realy been revealed.
Well who cares.
Don't forget the raging speculah.
I'm thinking 3B6's reality altering powers might be relevant later on (ayaka's flashback with the older Honoka) and we'll get that first taste here
