“And no matter what kind of problem humans are facing, whether its natural or man made, I always hope it gets worse. Don’t you? Don’t you... don’t you have a part of you, a part of you that secretly hopes everything gets worse? When you see a big fire on TV... don’t you hope it spreads? Don’t you hope it gets completely out of control and burns down six counties? You don’t root for the firemen, do ya’? I mean, I don’t want ‘em gettin’ hurt or nothin’, but... I don’t want ‘em putting out my fire.”
It does seem like a way to get Kei back into the action ASAP. But it could very easily lead to another huge search-for-Tae arc.

Can't wait for more fucking Tae storylines, as she and Fra inevitably get into trouble again and again.
^ I think Oku saw the polls on the character voting that had Tae in the top 3 so he thought maybe I should make the people not vote for her that much in the next one he does (if he does lol)
But boy oh boy Tae Milk's the pages in the chapters she has like an average of 5 pages a chapter since Kei first got transfered. I think Nishi/Cherry or Hikiwa are drinking in a bar whining over how a helpless otaku girl gets more screen time in a major chaos event than them! Well by now Hikiwa would be dazed in a corner curled up thinking "Does anybody remember me? Maybe I should lose the tie...no wait Half a tie, people liked me when I only had half a tie."
Yeah, I guess I feel that way too. Our societies feel stuck and there are too many rulers everywhere. Change would be good. Oku captures my imagination by doing crazy unexpected things you don't see in that light often.
^Really did she? She wasn't in Hen or the door (something) that was reika look a like.
And yes i'm quite aware that the planet is dangerous for them and Tae has been through a bunch of troubles like we've seen but you say that you want to see her go through those same troubles but with Kei and then end your post with a sarcastic remark about how you don't want more Tae stories? I'm sorry I don't follow.
Like I stated early this scenario is the best one for the story. I don't expect more Tae story because she IS with Fra. We've seen the aliens have pet humans and no one stopped or harassed Fra before. Now that Tae is with her she is pretty much safe hell and Fra has a translator and can understand her.
I hear a lot of people complaining about Oku but it seems like they don't know what they really want in the manga or how to set what they up right anyway, so I'm glad he's the author and you guys aren't.
Scan is out (finally) folks, enjoy it.
Thanks to mote for translating the chapter and PotatoBaron for the amazing raw!

Thanks for your support.
Well, either way, Tae will most likely be safe with that Big Alien that helped Kurono, as she now emphasizes with humans.
Enjoyed the fight a lot and I agree with everyone that there is too much Tae stuff!:/
Mary is fokken awesome!!!=) I hope she stays alive much longer than Sei! Finally a female character that can fight!!!
I was thinking that escorting Tae around Tokyo would present some unique challenges for Kei. I really enjoyed the Tae mission because he really went all out to protect her. It could also bring back those moral dilemmas; 'do I help civilians or do I look after Tae'.
On the other hand, Kei might actually hide out in Fra's house with Tae or something. Maybe the mom notifies the army or something (even if they shouldn't need it).
The fact that she was left behind now of all times was cheap. She went through like 8 situations that ought to have got her killed. In fact every single person she encountered was murdered right in front of her. So she has massive plot armor and it took the entire year to get her back, and now immediately she's alone again. People saw something like this miles away. It was an obvious set up by Oku.
Tae isn't safe yet. There are plenty of things that could get in the way. A lot of us don't share your confidence that Oku won't put us through something like this again.
I think I love Mary....
I reckon Nerdo is a dead man. If they're not getting healed anymore and it is the zaibatsu fellows that are summoning them then it's likely they don't want a heavily wounded person slowing them down.
I think they'll just take everyone. They took Takeshi last time didn't they? The transfer itself will heal Nerdo so that's not a problem.

We don't know for sure that everybody is being summoned. If the giants are in control of Kei2's team, that leaves Nishi, Takeshi, Kei1 and Cherry available to be taken. Oh, and the vampires as well.
I'm still hoping they start taking civilians as well. Specifically, Ryou.
