Agreed. Noticed that she's the only majin so far without any footwear. O.o Wonder what the deal is with that?
New batch of chapters was pretty awesome. I was pretty impressed at the fight choreography in Lichiru and Kyousuke's fights. The mangaka is getting pretty creative.
Though...for the first time, things are feeling kind of rushed. Metaru was fodderized before even doing anything. Same with that masked guy. That was clearly rushed and kind of worrisome...
And now Psychodoll is introduced, who is probably a "mid-boss" before they take on King Noelu. Hopefully Stalker-kun takes him on in a cool fight.
That being said, 42 (Psycho Vs Stalker) was pretty awesome. The scantlators have promised me a normal schedule for now on so lets hope it works out for them.
Fukuchi's always been creative with how he handles fights, so I'm not surprised. Still these went really well.
I wonder what King Noelu was doing? He somehow brought Luke back to life and he was sipping on some liquid. Concentrated healing spring water perhaps?
It'll be interesting to see what happens from here. Space 42 solidifies stalker as probably the most awesome character in the series, and Fukuchi seems to be slowing down a little. He was talking to a fan on twitter about Anagle's future and while he didn't reveal anything pertinent (of course), he did say that he recently finished drawing more scripts. So if we are to assume he has at least a month or two planned in advance then the series should go on a little longer.
I'm interested in that foreshadowing in space 41 when Chiwa was convincing Luchiru to find out the reason why he was born....it's the first time Towako's pregnancy has become relevant. Now it could add up to nothing, but I don't think what Chiwa was saying was completely without meaning....

I'm really wondering where things will go from here. Noelu has been suspiciously absent for a while, and the story pacing seems too fast one chapter, and just right in another. I'm still wondering what Fukuchi could...or no scratch that. I wonder what he will do once they get back to the surface?
Let's say that they defeat Psychodoll and Gorudof as this arc's villains. Then they could get back to the surface and regroup. Cue new arc where Noelu makes his move. Perhaps there are even more than one of these underground Anaguland-like places.....Or...they get back to the surface and live happily ever after as a family and the manga is canceled...
All of this hedges on one simple thing. Will humans and majin be able to live with one another? or will this lead to something deeper? Something interesting to note is the kanji for majin ='間人' is 'human' backwards. '人間' So I think the relationships between the two species are going to be the key to something deeper, and with Chiwa's foreshadowing speech in space 41, I feel like Luchiru will spearhead something big.

Had this up for other reasons but it's sorta Anagle related. Behold my closet of wonders!!
I think volume 4 will sell more than previous volumes. I think the cover may catch peoples' eye...
Please Fukuchi, no repeats of Ueki +'s ending. I'm begging you.
And worse yet is no continuation for a whole week. So many people were bitching at him on twitter. I almost feel like getting one so I can talk to him too. I feel like I'd be too much in awe to say anything coherent though.
I really hope it's not ending.. Such a good manga, I love this easy-going tone and the strikes of seriousness from time to time. I'm waiting for next chapter, we should get the answer where it's aiming in next 2 chapters. Does it have still chances to be longer or is it end?
At least I believe it should go on for another volume. Chapter 46 should conclude volume 5. Now I doubt Fukuchi could pad a fight against the king for an entire volume, so it's either A) He has plans for the series after this fight or, B) Volume 6 will be sorta short and make up for it's shortness with a bunch of extras and stuff.
Recently on his twitter Fukuchi has said he's been busy with stuff but he didn't mention if what he's busy with is Anagle mole, a new manga, or something else entirely. The last time he mentioned working on a manuscript for Anagle was a month ago, and the series yo-yos around the TOC a lot (which effectively means nothing in Sunday especially when compared to Jump.) The series doesn't sell particularly well either, though I suppose volume 4 could help with it's cover. (I already preordered my copy.
What? I like Arulu. Not like that dammit.It's all pretty up in the air. I hope it's not going to end but we may have to face facts...
Though you hit on exactly why I like Anagle Mole too. It's easy going and serious at the same time, and has really likeable characters. I hope it doesn't go anywhere anytime soon myself.
