Interesting chapter. The game of chicken between Fran and Eiji was pretty cool though it would have been nice to see that go on for a bit longer. We do know now that the organization wants to use Eiji for world domination. Supposedly to put Orders at the top of everything but I have a feeling there's more to it then that. Also sort of interesting how they have Sena held hostage in a sense.
I do wonder exactly what that bit was at the end of the chapter though. It seemed like when he tried to take control of the Ten he lost control of Rin. Maybe there's a limit to how many Order users he can control at once with his ability?
Guess the world of Big Order is just as mindblowingly insane as the one in Mirai Nikki when you can have a Prime Minister who's perfectly okay with having his citizens watch a public execution. Also thought Eiji made a rather clever use of his powers this time around, and he really is proving hiself to be a better protagonist than Yuki(even though I actually liked him as a character). I do like that the chapter has established a rather interesting dynamic between Eiji and the Ten. Even though it was apparent from the start he's just a pawn, they really went out of their way to make themselves look like hostages so he can take all the blame if their plans fail. Hope he can find a way to get out of it.
Only thing that's kinda getting irritating at this point is Rin. While her rather one track minded revenge obsession had an actual use this time, it is gonna get annoying if she doesn't eventually get over it or has some other form of character development. Of course this is still fairly early on in the series so I suppose it's forgivable for now
Kind of forgot about this after a couple chapters and just caught up.
Really like the direction this is going in as of chapter 4.
hehe same here i was catching up on magi and i saw a new chapter was posted then i read 4 chapters in a row of big order and with the recent development i really hope it gets turned into a anime now heck this could go on for awhile if they do have the ten and eiji try to conquer the entire world sorta like code geass cept replace britania with the entire world.
Seems the purpose of this chapter was mostly to introduce us to another member of the Ten (and to start building Eiji's harem (?). It seems that Iyo's future prediction ability is kinda similar to how the diaries in Mirai Nikki functioned but since we haven't gotten a full explination as to how they work, I won't make any major guess. Additionally Hiiragi continues to be very mysterious...he seems to have his own agenda planned but then we don't really know all that much about the goal of the Ten beyond world domination at this point.
Looks like "Heavy Star"'s order user will be showing up next chapter though.

Interesting dynamic going on this chapter. Got to learn a little more about Rin and it seems Eiji and co. are going to be nuked. Curious which side is lying though. Plot would usually dictate the Daikfu is telling the truth but then they still have their share of secrets...
On the bright side with the way things are going we could possibly see Rin get over her "must kill Eiji" by the end of this arc. It is getting pretty old.

Re: Big Order by ESUNO Sakae
I am bit disappointed since the chapter had 19 pages only, knowing it is a monthly released manga. I definitely love this manga but the pace is getting too rushed. I do agree that you can not tell who's the good side and who's the evil side. The faces of certain characters show that there's some hidden agenda but you can not tell whom you can trust. This might turn out into a scenario in which Rin and Eiji can only trust each other
Welp after waiting a while chapters 8 and 9 are up and translated here
Some interesting developments this time around. Seems Rin won't be getting rid of her Eiji kiling mantra anytime soon like I'd hoped but at least it turned out to be somewhat useful this time around. Also interesting to see that we got a red herring as far as who was eaking out information but Hiiragi still comes across as being too suspicious. Was also nice to see Eiji dealing with some of the hatred people have for him from the disaster and it;s cool to see him staying resolute in spite of that. Hopefully he won't be forced to tread any deep moral territory anytime soon.
