she's just doing it magical girl style :D

 

Befriend

1.To make a friend
2.To beat the crap out of someone. Orignates from the anime seris "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha", where the titular protaginst makes several friends by beating the crap out of them.

 

Spoiler

Onee chan is in a pinch again

I think a certain somebody needs to look up "friend" in the dictionary and read it reeeeeeally slowly, just to let it sink in.

They have been louder than they have been silent. Most of them leaves destruction in their wake. Their weapons of choice are huge and not inconspicuous at all. Some of them have too specific of an assassination style. Water Strider, Centipede. The cricket duo uses muscles and punch/kick through walls. Assassins my arse. Most are simply hired muscles. Imomushi is the closest to becoming an assassin.

Point. Maybe "silently" isn't the word I should've used. But there's also the fact that these agents/mercenaries don't usually fight each other, they rub out ordinary people. I think the battles we've seen so far are loud and crazy because they're fairly even matches between crazy people, and the destruction is more collateral damage than a killing method. Whereas Kamadouma wiped out a yakuza gang without attracting too much attention or breaking too much concrete.

Finally, the Organization is more about silently and efficiently assassinating their targets.

How come none of them uses guns so far?... >.> I'd think most of them would die pretty fast to that. >.> (xcept ofc, the speed-types, but you just need to restrict their movements first. =/

Pretty sure we've seen some guns. Imomushi has one, Alice used one to threaten the bully trio and kill Kumo, and that sniper fellow (Gin Yanma, or dragonfly) was ready to take her out when the latter occured.

 

You also forget that Japan has an anti-weapons law, and even if the Organization is powerful enough to get around it (which they are), a lot of their agents are in high school and can't use them very freely.

 

Finally, the Organization is more about silently and efficiently assassinating their targets. Why use a gun and risk more attention/clean-up when you can snatch people from the ceiling, paralyze them with poison, or whack them with a sock full of junk?

Spoiler

And now this spoiler from some pages ago finally makes sense:

This has SPOILERS from the latest chapter in Japan (55), but I saw it while reading this month's Joker and it's too good to not share. Spoiler warning, NSFW warning, reminder-that-this-is-a-shonen-magazine warning.

And before you object, I'm pretty sure there're some insects that specialize in shooting down their prey, maybe by spitting. >.> Or something.

 

That aside, I'm wondering when we'll see the mosquito, the dragonfly and/or the butterfly. :>

She just wants friends...but oh godscaredplz.gif

Kabutomushi confirmed for best grill.

For those who can't wait for the translations and are interested in an amateur impression of what went down from Chapter 37 up until Chapter 55:

Spoiler

Alright, who here didn't think something along those lines? Seriously, no one is as they seem in this story. In fact I still suspect that other girl isn't as helpless as she seems either.

Crazy stuff.

Well shit... guess I better knuckle down on those translations then.

>> "There's no slaughter without laughter."

Try imagining her with Harime Nui's voice in that scene^^

Sasori...? >.>

 

Also Kabutomushi... >.> Rhinoceros beetles have more than one specie...

 

It's just the author pulling things out of his ass as usual...which is what makes this manga entertaining to read :D

I see she has taken lessons from Nanoha in how to 'befriend' someone.

 

Really like this manga since it satisfies one of my interests, well... maybe two or three of them.

>> "There's no slaughter without laughter."

For how many chapters already it's same day?

wait, it's a south american spider, so why did she speak in thai?... that's a different place, those ants don't even live there.

That girl is Siamese.

Hmm, that attitude kind of reminds me of Harime Nui from Kill la Kill

Always a smile on her face and acting as any really powerful attacks aren't her problem at all. And of course her being a lot stronger than all the ppl who appeared in the story till now. 

 

Spoiler

so who was the sister of that girl who got beaten to death

so basically....she wants a sparring partner

 

Nah, she just learns how to make friend from a certain white devil magical girl.

 

On serious note, given the world they live in a 'friend' who is on par with you would certainly be better than 'friend' who ends up as hostage when someone goes after you.

 

Not to mention you two can 'play' and get better at fighting.

 

Basically a bloodier, insect-er version of this:

Spoiler

This school needs a guidance counselor.

so basically....she wants a sparring partner
