    Spoiler from "Wikia contributor 64.233.173.108" translated from baidu summary to English
    • Miyuki, Tatsuya. Takuma, Saegusa twins and Minami reached the scene. The 10MC Heads were being questioned by the Police. Izumi went and complained about why they were interrogating her father even though he is a victim. Tatsuya went and stopped her. This caught all of the Heads attention, especially that of Kouichi and Gouki.
    • To Tatsuya, being suspected is a minor issues. To him, Maya's health is more important. if anything happens to Maya, he and Miyuki cannot hide in anonymity. Furthermore, his position is not stable. He has only the people from FLT's 3rd Division as allies. Yakumo and Kazama will be neutral and not interfere. He has not met the Sponsors. Maya is one of the strongest Magicians. He has doubts that he would win against her. Despite that, she is still a frail woman and can be killed. He was prepared to use Regrowth.
    • Since there was no chance to talk, he decided to return to school. Then he and Miyuki met Masaki. Masaki has mixed feelings when they greeted him. He noticed Miyuki and Tatsuya are further apart than usual but he feels this is due to them becoming lovers. While Miyuki understands the complicated feelings of Masaki, she is very unhappy with him.
    • After telling Masaki where his father is, he rushed away. Due to being underage, Katsuto finished the questioning earlier and met up with Tatsuya and company. Takuma and Minami introduced themself. Katsuto told them that the Clan Heads are fine and informed them what happened. Kasumi asked why her father is being questioned. He told them they were questioned because they were witnesses. Izumi asked whether they were treated as suspects. He answered that they were not suspected of being an accomplice or the mastermind, but the Police believe that the war between magicians resulted in this suicide attack. Tatsuya feels that it is reason enough about what the anti-magician groups would think of. Miyuki ask whether the Police have Humanist people. Tatsuya feels that the Police are not Humanist members as they would have been even more thorough.
    • Katsuto questioned whether the siblings are really cousins (Since miyuki has been using Onii-sama.) Tatsuya lied and said it is just out of habit since they were siblings not too long ago. Tomozuka arrived and Katsuto leaves to meet with him along with the twins.
    • Tatsuya answered Miyuki that Tomozuka is the half-brother of the twins, having different mothers. Miyuki asked about just now. Tatsuya replied that regarding the Police having anti-magician thoughts, there is nothing to worry about. Miyuki feels that It is an serious issue the thoughts of the Police can be influenced. He says that if there is a part of the police being influenced by anti-magician ideals, just remove them. There is no need to act on to the magicians. If there is information leak, the Police will organize themselves. Miyuki asked what to do if Police decides to oppose the magicians. Tatsuya answered that as long as science is not able to handle magic, to defend against magic, you need a magician. Before the conflict escalates, the Government will step in. Miyuki asked what will happens if they didn't. Tatsuya answered that assuming the police have no extreme thoughts, the idea of 10MC must take responsibility for the terrorists attack is too deeply rooted. If the neutral police think like that, then the average citizens would think like that. Depending on how the media reports, public opinion would change drastically. Regrettably, the majority are reporting that the acts of magician cost the lives of people. The fault of the attack lies on the terrorist. However, there will be people who are swayed by the media into believing that magicians also have the responsibility. However, there are still some pro magician media. Furthermore, 10MC would not standby. Tatsuya decided to leave as there nothing left to do. Takuma decided to stay.
    • Gu Jie feels that the attack is a success. Even though it is a old weapon, it was effective. His magic was not detected. The security is almost the same as in USNA. As predicted, 10MC is not hurt. He wants to tell Japan that in order to survive, magician will abandon them.

    TA added some spoiler

    • Tatsuya calls Maya as "Mother". He nearly calls her "Aunt", but he realizes he is with Takuma and Izumi, so he stops himself from saying "Aunt" and says, "Mother".
    • When Izumi rushes towards a detective and asks him why police is questioning her father and others. No one among 10MC leaders stops Izumi. This is a situation when a parent should scold a child, but besides scolding his child, Saegusa Koichi is amused by Izumi's action. Koichi is making wondrous (神妙) face, but his eye is smiling.
    • Tatsuya stops Izumi and excuses themselves from police. Leaders of 10MC looks at the situation interestingly (興味津). Especially, gazes of Koichi and Gouki holds great interests.
    • If something happens to Maya, it is not good because Tatsuya and Miyuki can no longer hide behind anonymity(匿名性) while their positions are not solidified. Only ally that Tatsuya currently has, is Ushiyama and 3rd Lab. Yakumo and Kazama will most likely stay neutral. In addition, Tatsuya has not confronted "Sponsor".
    • Tatsuya notices Masaki and calls his name. As always, he greets Miyuki by asking a question. Miyuki feels displeasure (不快) from Masaki's action, but she does not hate/loathe him, so it is easy for her to show friendly smile towards Masaki.

    • It's quite likely that Masaki made to get closer to Miyuki is by transferring to First High for a period of a single month.
    • that 3rd high principal is a former military and one year senior of Ichijo, used to break his nose during sparing, so they are old friends, an interesting side character, there will be no problem because Masaki will be learning from the 3rd high material via teleconferencing, (except physic ed. and practical training.) only using the 1st high facility. we are after all talking only a time duration of one month, which of course including valentine's day.
    • After knowing who is the enemy, tatsuya went to Yakuno to counter ghostwalker. That night, he went to a meeting at Katsuto and Mayumi appeared surprisingly. They decided that the meetings are held everyday at a shop near magic university. Gu jie plan worked well. Even Kanon formed enemy with izumi. Takuma looked for Maki for help to stop the media as he feel responsible as a 10MC. Kuroba is able to use aura? To track people. Hence, he abet to a morgue to cast his tracking magic, to track gu Jie. Toshikazu and his partner went to find Kyoko.
    • Tatsuya, Katsuto and Mayumi had their first meeting. Tatsuya arrived at university gate 5 minutes early and mayumi escorted him to the shop. Tatsuya Sat beside mayumi and was opposite Katsuto. At this moment, Tatsuya is wondering whether he had a romantic scenario with mayumi. Tatsuya provided the USNA information. After the meeting, he escorted Mayumi to her ride. It started to snow, and Tatsuya covered mayumi with the umbrella, Mayumi then hold onto his hand all the way to the stop.
    • Kuroba found out Gu Jie place. All of the branch head and Tatsuya went to catch him. They didn't managed to catch him but found out that he was using enhanced people from the military. Toshikazu contacted Kyoko, then found out Inagaki was feeling unwell. Kyoko and 101's currently investigating Zhou incident. Shiba sibling was invited to Kitayama house. Shizuku father asked if they needed help, but was rejected by Tatsuya. If his family is involved, he will act upon it.
    • Koichi met with 上野 congressman and pressure him to stop secretly inciting the public. Masaki arrived at first high, same class as miyuki. Tatsuya then told him about the meeting. After the meeting, he went back home first, questioning whether Miyuki is acting differently recently. Maya called and he explained to her that the military might be hiding Gu Jie and reveal that Mayumi is in the meeting. Miyuki was very jealous.
    • During class, Miyuki was practicing with Masaki. Honoka asked masaki to have lunch together. (Might have the intention to couple up with Miyuki). At the lunch table, Tatsuya ,hearing the conversation, felt that love is like a war. After school, Tatsuya went to 101. He explained to Kazama about the military helping Gu Jie, and told him about Yotsuba attacking a base. He wished Kazama could pick up the pieces. When Tatsuya and Kuroba twins entered the base, they interrupted by USNA. USNA is able to get gu Jie Psion signature to track him down.
    • Valentine day arrived. Tatsuya receive a lot of chocolate. Returned home, miyuki have recently made chocolate for him.(not much)
    • Anti magic movement become bigger. 400-500 people gathered at magic university Gate. Inagaki head aches again, which worries Toshikazu. Under Maki help, Takuma allowed congressman to make an act, preventing the anti magic movement to stop rallying the people. Gu Jie felt anxious. Student started getting attacked. 2nd high girl student was attacked. Miyuki contacted minoru (vice president) to understand what happened.
    • Tatsuya warned Minami to be more alert and change the type of shield to use . Toshikazu met Erika whether she met inagaki. From Kyoko, inagaki headache might be from gu Jie manipulation. Only haruka and toshikazu was there. He just asked whether Erika has met his partner.
    • Minami Miyuki Izumi got attacked by anti magician group with Psion interference, antinite. Both minami and izumi wasn't able to do anything. Toshikazu and inagaki is being manipulated by Gu Jie.
    • Tatsuya still see miyuki as a sister, still unable to respond to her feelings. But during Valentine, there is some "flashes" (scenes that show their love)
    • Tatsuya feels that miyuki might face some danger. However, tatsuya still went and investigate gu jie. He believes that miyuki can handle these people but if something happens. Then the book ended.

    Chapter 7

    • It starts from yakumo teaching tatsuya about ghostwalker.(tatsuya requested it) another thing to note is that since he is not a disciple of the temple, yakumo can't teach him any magic. It was noted that modern magic and traditional magic has a lot of similarities
    • There is some explanation of how ghostwalker worked. Then there was some training on how to counter it. After that , he went back to school. During lunch , all of tatsuya friends gathered. there was a news broadcast made by the terrorists. It basically says that they want to release people from magicians, if magicians are not exiled, more sacrifices will be made.
    • Then the reporter criticized magicians that instead of protecting themselves, they should prioritise others more. Then the group make various points to rebut the news report. Right now, politicians blame the terrorists for the most part. But if the anti magicians opinion continues to rise, the anti magician politicians would be happy to follow.
    • Izumi and kanon had a fight. Kanon was complaining that 10mc did not respond to the crisis properly and should have saved civilians. This resulted in people blaming magicians. Izumi defended by saying that 10mc are also civillians and are not different from other civilian.
    • 101 does not participate in the search because they do not want to be seen as a ally to the 10mc because 101 announced to everyone that they will catch gu jie. Thus, anyone who is seen helping them will be seen as an ally

    Chapter 8

    • Miyuki practices with masaki. Quite amusing that masaki underestimated first high curriculum. They are supposed to change the colour of a white ball in order of red, green blue for ten times in 30 sec. The goal is to finish this in exactly 30 sec, with minimal time difference. Masaki was able to end it 0.7 sec before whereas honoka and miyuki was able to end it exactly 30 sec. This practice was to allow the student to learn how to end magic so that they do not over burden themself. Masaki is doing it for the first time so I think him not getting the hang of it is natural. It is noted that third high focus combat more while first high focus more on the small details. He was supposed to learn how to cast magic under a cover in third high.
    • Honoka invited masaki to lunch. They just talked over the lunch table. Miyuki and tatsuya seem ok with him. Tatsuya even praised him for being an excellent magician. The reason why honoka was so that miyuki will be kept busy by masaki while she get closer to tatsuya. They talked about masaki involvement in the search, tease masaki a bit, then talk the class they had just now.
    • About tatsuya talked to kazuma. Tatsuya does not like gu jie as his puppet magic goes against his ideal of stopping magicians to become tools of war. The enhance soldiers were from a training facility that is a joint research with the usna. It is also stated that when those enhanced soilders escape, the 10mc will kill them. This reminded me of the part of yuutosei where the fire guy escaped into the mall. he asked kazuma to take care of the aftermath which implied that he is going to use mist dispersion on ally millitary troops.
    • Also gu jie is near the base and not in the base.
    • Part of the invasion of gu jie hiding place. Ayako, fumiya and yoshimi were there with tatsuya. Ayako and fumiya guard the exit while tatsuya search for gu jie.there is a lot of action. Tatsuya is able to use Psion to control his body and his body is able to maintain the structural information of his body, even if the limit of his body is past, it will not cause burden, harm the body. Just when he almost get gu jie, multiple bullets were coming at him.
    • 3 hours ago , usna reached the base (which had the training facility). He asked for permission to kill fugitives that ran away (The base commander knew about the parasite incident). Back to present, tatsuya is able to dodge and fend off the bullets. If it was jsdf, he would have just used mist dispersion. But he decided to hide his magic. He dismantled the guns, knocked him out, took off his bulletproof vest and regrowth the guns back. He use elemental sight trying to find gu jie and found out the attack on ayako and fumiya.
    • Fumiya reacted to the enemy and disabled him by using direct pain. A smoke grenade was thrown, making the area hard to see. Direct pain require sight on the target for it to work. Usna used casting interference device (introduce noise to the cad), causing problems to fumiya casting magic to blow the smoke away . Fujitsu had to double the Psion output to cast the magic. The smoke cleared and the enemy increased to 5, with 2 people using the device. Fumiya ordered ayako to retreat. The enemy tried to stop her but was flying kicked by fumiya. He was cut by a knife in the same time. Ayako flashbanged a incoming enemy and fumiya disabled him wig magic. In order to protect fumiya from the rifle shooting, ayako has to continous cast barrier. The reason why ayako pseudo teleport out and fumiya unable to hit everyone with direct pain at the same time was due to the casting interference device. When fumiya was going to take down the gunners recklessly, tatsuya appeared and cad noise disappeared.
    • The reason why tatsuya did not go directly to the roof (where ayako and fumiya were) was that he did not want to get hit during mid air and spread sleeping gas in the first and second floor to not let innocent doctors and nurse to be involved. Tatsuya decomposed the device, masking with a sound of gunshot. Bullet was shot at him but he caught with his hand.(same as Yokohama). This caused the soldier to stun. He decomposed a hole in the body of the 5 soldiers. He casted regrowth on fumiya. Tatsuya then shot the 5 guy in the hole to pretend it is a gunshot. Tatsuya wants the enemy to be left behind as it would be troublesome and they give no clues. They brought back the corpse of the 2 generator.
    • Benjamin ordered to collect the corpse after yotsuba left. Usna is tracking gu jie through satellite using his pison signature (this was collected as a precaution for refugee in their country). Following orders, Benjamin wanted to hinder Japan investigation and think of a way to kill gu jie off borders out in the sea.

    Chapter 9

    • Tatsuya was very disappointed with the mission. the investigation of usna and the meeting of katsuto and others was not successful. Masaki felt anxious as he moved for the search. He feel that miyuki and tatsuya are unexpectedly not intimate. On his way to lunch he received chocolate from 7 girls. Shizuku and miyuki saw it and tease him which dealt a blow to him. Honoka invited him for lunch. Erika tease him about the chocolate which make him uneasy. Tatsuya accepted chocolate from honoka after he told her he has a marriage arrangement with miyuki. Shizuku, eimi, subaru and 2 first year student gave him giri chocolate. At home, He felt strange when he was greeted by miyuki. Miyuki did not give masaki giri chocolate. Tatsuya felt sad for honoka when he accepted honoka chocolate. Miyuki felt that he should have rejected it. Miyuki gave tatsuya a chocolate cake.
    • Shizuku gives Tatsuya a bag to transport his chocolates and hide them from Miyuki. Tatsuya thought the bag shizuku gave was for him to put in the chocolate but the bag contain chocolate from shizuku. Amy was going to give some to Tomitsuka as well but he had already left. When Tatsuya gets home, Miyuki presents him with a chocolate cake. Miyuki questions the bag she has seen Tatsuya carrying. He tells her what it is. Then he says "don't worry, I did not receive any from Saegusa-senpai" remembering last year's bitter chocolates. Miyuki feels relieved. Then she says "Saegusa should know better than to do that as a university student now." Miyuki did not give Masaki chocolates this year because if she did it would have a different meaning. Then Tatsuya tells her about accepting Honoka's chocolates but reminding her of the engagement. Miyuki says that he should have turned her down.
    • Erica also wanted to make bets as to the number of chocolates Masaki would receive by the end of the day. Miki tells her to drop the topic but she ignores him. She assured him it would be double digits. He's used to Erica's personality. He also didn't realize it was Valentine's and was confused why random girls are giving him presents and running away. Shizuku tells him it was Valentine's day. Erika keeps wanting to talk about Masaki's chocolate record which only contributes to making him feel worse. Tatsuya and Leo try to make him feel better.

    Chapter 10

    • There was a protest at the gate of magic university. Protest got violent with them swinging signboard. Protesters got pushed down, which escalated the situation. Tatsuya and friends were discussing about the protest as it get broadcast. Protesters threw stones and the police. It seemed that there is less people that the anti-war protest. 24 protesters were arrested. Toshikazu was seen at the scene by leo. There was no report of how many people were at the protest. Tatsuya estimated it to be around 500 people. A lawyer criticizing the police for infringement of free speech and assembly which got erika mad.
    • The news footage was edited. There was protestor using blunt object to hurt the police. It was stopped by inagaki with magic. The protester went unconscious. No one reported about the assault as they do not want to not link the assault to the protest. Inagaki got a bruise in the process. he felt a headache when he hears about the police. Toshikazu noticed that inagaki has been touching his head often and is worried for him.
    • There was a debate on the night news. Congressman Kanda (神田, anti-magician congressman) criticized the way the police handled the protest while congressman Ueno (上野, the congressman that koichi talk to, not sure if the name is correct or not) defended the police. Koichi was watching the debate with mayumi. Koichi finds Kanda to be unexpectedly calm and was not extreme. Mayumi thinks by doing that it would weaken his points. Koichi feels that Kanda is a clown and it is common for people to take clown seriously. He thinks that emotional speech only appeals to the mindless crowd but the self-proclaimed academics might find the speech childish and him stupid and so, using these reason makes it easier to handle. Mayumi finds Ueno is lacking in this regard. Koichi wants Ueno to extinguish, but not to ignite, and calm both parties. Mayumi showed a strong sense of dislike of his father's words and asked what is the next step. Koichi wants to wait and see and was surprised that the network was on their side. He thinks that this was because of Maki.
    • Takuma called Maki after the show. He wanted to thank her for inviting congressman Ueno and using a pro-magician host. Maki answered that he does not need ot thank her, since it was not due to his request, but his father wanted to do something different from other stations and it could get favours from Ueno.
    • Gu jie is unhappy and anxious. His objective is to make citizens antagonize the magicians and japan magicians, driven by society, will sacrifice the 10mc. Yotsuba being part of 10mc will be buried by society. However, he thinks that things will calm down before any major change is to happen. He had sworn to take revenge on the ones that humiliated him but it became impossible when yotsuba wiped them. Unable to find a target, he directed his revenge onto yotsuba. The terrorist attack was to deny japanese magicians of their contributions. He wanted to exact revenge before he pass away. The reason why he is able to be so elusive was due to zhou's connection. Not being able to use hlidskjalf was a blow to him but having loyal allies is more reliable. In order to leave the country, he needed to have to get a stronger pawn, someone stronger from japanese military than enhanced magicians. He remembered from one friend that a disciple of a magician family is imprinted. He thought of a plan to use the imprinted disciple to lure out the people from the magician family.
    • There was another protest near the parliament but there was no riot. 2nd high students were attacked by anti-magician people. On his way home, Tatsuya, after hearing the incident, went back to school. The student council was planning to call 2nd high. Minoru, vice-president of 2nd high, picked up the call. Minoru told them what happen during the attack. 6, aged around 20 year old, guys surrounded a first year girl of 2nd high. They started to sprout humanist message. The girl tried to call the police but was stop by one of the guys. Other students heard the commotion and tried to help out. Thus, a fight broke out. One of the girl student used magic to neutralise the guys. The students suffered some major injuries while the guys suffered minor injuries (one of the guys had high blood pressure, the magic cause his heart to beat irregularly). Minoru still do not whether it was excessive self-defense and had to wait for their president to come back. After the call, they were discussing whether this will result in laws of using magic as self-defense, or even worse if magicians have the right of self-defense.


    Afterword:

    • The story has finally reached volume 18. No matter if it is tatsuya and miyuki, they are going to be third year, there is a feeling that the story is closer to the end. Therefore.....actually it is not like that, recently less descriptive plot, missing plot has become more cared for than before. .......no, maybe the cause is actually the finishing line getting closer. Previously decided 2 volumes of master clan conference turn into 3 volume, is also due to "this must be written in", "adding this is better"...... Always non -stop thinking of adding content which was the cause.
    • For example, according to the original plot of volume 18, there was no raymond, but even if there is a small difference in the position between him and the other six, even if it is just a hint of the setting, maybe it is better to mention it a bit. When writing halfway through, there was a same thought again. Kyokou and toshikazu part has increased along the way. Just like that plot is continuously added and so, the total volume has increased at the end. Talking about missing plot that I have cared for more, for example, during steeplechase, the coincidental meeting of Erika and Leo, i have been constantly worrying about it. Although there is no plan for writing side story first before writing the main story,
    • I plan to write next about Leo and Erika side story after finishing master clan conference arc. Even said so, it is not a decision that I can make on my own, the only thing decided is that vol 19 is the last of the master clan conference arc. I will quickly write the next book (master clan conference part 3), so please look forward to it..


    From TA

    Spoiler for Vol.18 Spoilers Correction: I am going through the Mahouka wikia's vol.18 discussion's spoiler page.

    • Gu Jie is not aided by the military. He is just using enhanced soldiers from Jama Base; this facility is operated by both Japanese military and USNA military. This is one of dark secrets that Japanese military wants to hide because this place is the evidence that can prove, the Japanese military supplied Japaneses to USNA for human experimentations.
    • Honoka is not Masaki x Miyuki shipper. Honoka strategically used Masaki to distract Miyuki while Honoka was approaching Tatsuya. The narrator also added his comments on the similarity between war and dating in order to justify Honoka's action.
    • Tatsuya was relieved that Honoka was with Shizuku, but he did not want to spend time with Honoka not because he has a bad feeling towards her. It was mainly because of his mission to catch Gu Jie. Tatsuya is having trouble tracking Gu Jie ever since USNA interfered with him at Jama base.
    • Ono Haruka is not shown in the vol.18. But, she is mentioned in the volume when the narrator explains about Toshikazu's ability to conceal just like Haruka. The narrator mentions, Toshikazu's ability is not as good as Haruka, but his ability is still the first class.


    Spoiler for Vol.18 New Character and additional information on existing Characters:

    • Maeda Chizuru

    Maeda Chizuru is 3rd High School Principal. She also went to the 3rd High School with Ichijou Gouki. She was one year senior. She is very informal for a school principal, but she is hiding her true character while working as a principal. When she attended the 3rd High School, she was excelled in skill test without any equals. Even Gouki got his nose broken by her. ("Breaking nose" is proverb for breaking one's pride. It means, Chizuru may have defeated Gouki with test scores.)

    Chizuru used to work for Japanese Navy Force but she left the Navy due to the trouble with senior officer regarding the group sexual harassment. Her military rank was Lieutenant Junior Grade when she left the Navy.

    • Shinonome Yoshimi

    Shinonome Yoshimi is 21 Years old and a cousin of Kuroba twins. Her father is older brother of Kuroba twins' deceased mother. She never attended Magic high school, and she attended a communication(cyber) high school (通信高等學校; it is a high school program for ones who cannot attend the school physically.) because she has been working on search-type missions.

    Yoshimi always wears the same look: a casquette, a large sunglasses, and a muffler scarf that covers up to the bottom of her nose.

    • Kuroba Ayako

    Ever since Tatsuya's engagement to Miyuki, Ayako has been trying to accept the reality. Ayako is no longer holding herself back towards Tatsuya, so she is more open to Tatsuya, and the distance between Tatsuya and Ayako seems shortened. (The author used the word, 辭讓 (it means restrain, reserve, and holding back))

    • Chiba Toshikazu

    Erika dislikes Toshikazu because when Erika was young and was training with Toshikaze, Toshikaze beat her up until she cannot stand. (whenever they trained together). So, even Toshikaze jokes, it gets on Erika's nerve. In addition, his words also pierce through the deep inside of Erika's mind, so it makes her mad even more.

    • Fujibayashi Kyouko

    Fujibayashi Kyouko makes a scene in this volume. She disappointed that Toshikazu did not know her promotion. She assumes, if he is interested in her, he should be able to register her name into search engine. At the end, she felt lonely after misunderstanding the entire situation. (Toshikazu was simply too busy with dealing aftermath of Yokohama incident and Vampire (parasite) incident).

    • Sawamura Maki

    Sawamura Maki is actually only one year older than Shippo Takuma. ( I am currently double-checking this with the translator.) When Takuma visited Maki, she was planning to treat him well and sent him home. But, after she realizes how much Takuma has changed and was impressed with Takuma, she tried to cross the line regardless of Tatsuya's warning. But, Takuma stopped her by asking for a help. Takuma said, he will do anything for this favor. According to the narrator, Takuma will regret for this favor but will keep his words. He will make a debut on screen as an actor who plays an opposite role of Maki while attending Magic University.

    (If Mahouka ends with the high school, at least we know Tatsuya will not blow the world to kingdom come.


    • When Katsuto was released from police questioning, the narrator provided interesting details regarding the Mahouka world. According to the narrator, the legal age for being adult was lowered to 18 years old, but it was increased to 20 years old in 2070s because many young people were enlisted to the army during the 20 years war, and they increased the legal age in the form of repent. Increasing legal age has been a global trend. In an extreme case, legal age for being adult dropped down to 16 years old and increased to 25 years.
    • Members and related people from other families could be seen, but the butler, Hanabishi (#3)'s men were trying to hide in order to avoid getting attention.
    • Miyuki asked about Saegusa Tomozuka (Tomokazu) because when Saegusa twins called their half-brother, Kasumi called him as "Aniki", and Izumi "Oniisan". And, they expresses some awkwardness while saying those words.
    • At the end of discussion about Miyuki's fear on police being influenced by Humanist faction, everyone decided to depart except Takuma. Before Tatsuya left the place, Takuma was about to share an opinion on the subject that Tatsuya and Miyuki were discussing, but Takuma restrained himself from sharing his opinion.
    • At the end of the chapter, Gu Jie was watching the tragic terror attack. He was at the mansion located in Odawara. It is located 9 km East from 10MC meeting place.


    • The first color page with Masaki and shocked Miyuki, Honoka, and Shizuku. Masaki: "I am Ichijou Masaki from 3rd High School. I will be studying together with you due to strong friendship (情, sentiment, heart, affection can be used.). It is short one month, but I am looking forward to it. (Direct translation of the last sentence is "Please look after me".)

    • Tatsuya visited Kazama and asked for a permission because he was planning to use mist dispersion on soldiers who may get in his way when Tatsuya goes after Gu Jie nearby Jama base. These soldiers from Jama base are enhanced soldiers, and for some reasons, enhanced soldiers hate 10MC. Tatsuya worries about the possibility of a situation where enhanced soldiers get incited to go after Tatsuya and Yotsuba pursuers. Tatsuya is planning to erase everything with mist dispersion if a skirmish happens between Tatsuya's group (Kuroba twins) and enhanced soldiers.
    • From my perspective, Tatsuya only went to Kazama because enhanced soldiers are still members of Japanese military, and getting a permission to use mist dispersion is the same as getting a permission to kill enhanced soldiers.

    • Tatsuya came back to the house, only to sees Miyuki in a bad mood. Just before he asked her what happened. Maya, called on the phone, she confirmed that Gu Jie has been aided by the military (?). Tatsuya told Miyuki that Mayumi will join the hunting team, he noticed Miyuki is extremely jealous after she learned that
    • Honoka is confirmed a Masaki x Miyuki shipper (lol), she invited Masaki to have lunch with her and Miyuki which led to Tatsuya's facepalm.
    • On Valentine day, Honoka called Tatsuya to give him her valentine chocolate gift. He heard Honoka's voice from behind, Tatsuta feels relieved when he saw her with the Shizuku because " he doesn't want to spend time alone with her this day" (R.i.p Honoka ship)
    • Honoka wants Tatsuya to accept her gift, he is not refused. He thanked but he reminded her that she doesn't need to do it because he is already engaged to Miyuki .
    • Honoka told him she doesn't mind, so Tatsuya was reluctant to accept her gift.
    • Toshikazu approached Erika and Haruka and with their help confirming Inagaki is missing, he searched and found Inagaki lying on the floor at puppeteer's home and then he were knocked unconscious. (Hata AS correction)

    • Mayumi chose the seat that was next to Tatsuya and, diagonally in front of Katsuto. It should be noted that there was not particular meaning to it. Because Tatsuya and Mayumi came to this table side by side, it was probably only after they settled down in the position relations (without changing it) that Tatsuya decided to think about that.
    • 摩利に呼び出され、聞かされた話は、まだ達也の記憶に新しい。その所為かどうか、真由美 のことを全く意識していないと言えば嘘になる。だが真由美をそういう対象として見ることができる力というと それも否だった。
    • He was called by Mari, and the story that he was told was still fresh in Tatsuya's mind. Whether or not that was the case, it will be a lie if he said that he wasn’t indeed conscious of Mayumi. However, It was not even the case that he had the capacity to be able to view Mayumi like that (as a partner).
    • 達也は深雪の気持ちを受け止めて、彼女の婚約者となった。だが、深雪の想いを受け容れた わけではなかった。

    • The base of operations is in Tokyo because Saegusa and Juumonji are taking the lead/coordinating the search. Tokyo area is under their jurisdiction. That is why he has to go to 1st high because his father says he is sending his son on behalf of his clan and Maya says she sends Tatsuya on behalf of Yotsuba. After the attack, all the branch heads take a helicopter ride to the Kanto Magic Association HQ to discuss strategy. After Maya and Gouki say they will send Tatsuya and Masaki, Futatsugi head, older lady, says that they should think about the boys' school despite the crisis, maybe being absent so long is frowned upon. Maya says that Tatsuya has achieved so much in school it is no problem. Gouki says she has a point but their duty to investigate takes precedence.
    • After the meeting, Gouki and Masaki return to Kanazawa. Gouki tells him he's telling his school he will be excused for the rest of the school year. Principal of 3rd high convinces Gouki that he should let his son transfer instead to 1st high since it is in the area and let him finish the year. There's only one month left of the school year. Katsuto, Mayumi and Tatsuya have their 1st meeting at Magic Uni cafe. After Masaki gets to 1st high, Tatsuya tells him the plan and about their meetings, he is not there for the 1st meeting.

    • Finished reading the book and wasnt sure what to think about it I mean the last volume ended with a bang quite literally and thought it will continue to this volume but majority of it is spent on the school part, well there is Tatsuya hunting with Yoshimi(?).
    • Ayako and Fumiyas cousin is a welcome scene for me but not really the main focus. I read in previous post about Miyuki having doubts about her engagement with Tatsuya but I havent read that in the book, the thing that is bothering Miyuki is how to act properly with Tatsuya now that they are engaged, miyuki is thinking before even if she acts all jealous or anything Tatsuya wouldnt leave her and she has the greatest shield she is his sister but now that they are engaged she was afraid that if she still acts or show her jealousy.
    • Tatsuya might not like it and cancel their engagement which scares the living daylights out of her that is why she doesnt show or suppressed her jealousy a good example would be during a video conversation between Tatsuya,Miyuki and Maya, Maya asks about how is the meeting that Tatsuya is taking part on , and reminded Tatsuya that it is fine to get along with them(Katsuto,Mayumi,Masaki)but not too well because the only reason that Mayumi is included in the meeting is proposed by Koichi and not Katsuto so that Mayumi and Tatsuya could meet and according to Maya so that the two of them could date. Before if Miyuki heard anything like that she will immediately burst but now she not acting up, although Tatsuya could see that she is just bearing with it, Tatsuya thought that it is a sign that Miyuki is growing up.


    Volume 19 Preview~Confirmed

    Together with Katsuto, Mayumi, Masaki and Tatsuya they were going to search for Gu Jie whereabouts. However, an unexpected opponent hinders Tatsuya who was caught in the trail.

    This enrages Tatsuya because of the unexpected appearance. Saegusa Mayumi and Juumonji Katsuto went to search, while Ichijou Masaki is fighting. Major Benjamin Canopus, No.2 of Stars, takes part in the war.

    Various people waver, the worst case that shouldn't happen will happen because of Gu Jie who has "magic that manipulates dead bodies".

    • Only Tatsuya and Erika are aware that Masaki loves Miyuki because they are perceptive about things like that. Miyuki can probably guess that he's into her at least. There's a conversation between Erika, Leo and Miki about Masaki and she points out that he's really into Miyuki. Miki and Leo seem a little shocked or surprised by him transferring. It's like the three of them are watching a drama and having popcorn about everything. Masaki interacts with them later.

He was supposed to learn how to cast magic under a cover in third high.

      Izumi and kanon had a fight. Kanon was complaining that 10mc did not respond to the crisis properly  and should have saved civilians. This resulted in people blaming magicians. Izumi defended by saying that 10mc are also civillians and are not different from other civilian.

    • ^ But Kazama's superior(Saeki) doesn't like 10MC system in which the military still rely heavily on influential and powerful families. She just made a preferential agreement one time with Maya because it also helped to reduce Retsu's military influences.

      In Yokohama arc, fighting the same threathened enemy doesn't signify that they are an ally. It's just a mutual benefit and both of them lives under Japan's sovereignty so it is no surprised that they can help to repel the enemy together.

      Not in the book, I think the difference between Yokohama and now is that this is a 10mc mission while Yokohama is involved everyone.

    • ^ Whether or not the victims from bombing are from 10MC, they are still Japan's citizens. 10 MC might take it upon themselves however 101 which is also part of Japan's magic defense line should more or less play a significant role in apprehending Gu Jie. Hence, it is irrelevant regardless the hostility b/n 101 and 10MC.

    • It is not that they are victims or not. It is that they announced to everyone that they will catch gu jie. Thus, anyone who is seen helping them will be seen as an ally. I agree that they should put aside their political stand  but 101 is actually helping the police indirectly by giving information to toshikazu.

    • Just read the first part of the invasion of gu jie hiding place. Ayako, fumiya and yoshimi were there with tatsuya. Ayako and fumiya guard the exit while tatsuya search for gu jie.there is a lot of action. Tatsuya is able to use Psion to control his body and his body is able to maintain the structural information of his body, even if the limit of his body is past, it will not cause burden, harm the body. Just when he almost get gu jie, multiple bullets were coming at him.

    • 3 hours ago , usna reached the base (which had the training facility). He asked for permission to kill fugitives that ran away  (The base commander knew about the parasite incident). Back to present,  tatsiya is able to dodge and fend off the bullets. If it was jsdf, he would have just used mist dispersion. But he decided to hide his magic. He dismantled the guns, knocked him out, took off his bulletproof vest and regrowth the guns back. He use elemental sight trying to find gu jie and found out the attack on ayako and fumiya.

    • Sorry for the wait. I was busy

      Fumiya reacted to the enemy and disabled him by using direct pain. A smoke grenade was thrown, making the area hard to see. Direct pain  require sight on the target for it to work. Usna used casting interference device (introduce noise to the cad), causing problems to fumiya casting magic to blow the smoke away . Fujitsu had to double the Psion output to cast the magic. The smoke cleared and the enemy increased to 5, with 2 people using the device. Fumiya ordered ayako to retreat. The enemy tried to stop her but was flying kicked by fumiya. He was cut by a knife in the same time. Ayako flashbanged a incoming enemy and fumiya disabled him wig magic. In order to protect fumiya from the rifle shooting, ayako has to continous cast barrier. The reason why ayako pseudo teleport out and fumiya unable to hit everyone with direct pain at the same time  was due to the casting interference device. When fumiya was going to take down the gunners recklessly, tatsuya appeared and cad noise disappeared. 

      The reason why tatsuya did not go directly to the roof (where ayako and fumiya were) was that he did not want to get hit during mid air and spread sleeping gas in the first and second floor to not let innocent doctors and nurse to be involved. Tatsuya decomposed the device, masking with a sound of gunshot. Bullet was shot at him but he caught with his hand.(same as Yokohama). This caused the soldier to stun. He decomposed a hole in the body of the 5 soldiers. He casted regrowth on fumiya. Tatsuya then shot the 5 guy in the hole to pretend it is a gunshot. Tatsuya wants the enemy to be left behind as it would be troublesome and they give no clues. They brought back the corpse of the 2 generator. 

      Benjamin ordered to collect the corpse after yotsuba left. Usna is tracking gu jie through satellite using his pison signature (this was collected as a precaution for refugee in their country). Following orders, Benjamin wanted to hinder Japan investigation and think of a way to kill gu jie off borders out in the sea.

    • So does anyone know about Mayumi's overall intentions regarding tatsuya?

      Last i heard, she admitted to Mari that her farther wanted to her to marry Tatsuya, but even though she fantasised about winning Tatsuya it still seemed like she was against it overall. Then in the current volume, according to translations, she behaved indifferently to Tatsuya during the meeting while he pondered the thought of Mayumi until Tatsuya put an umbrella over her and she started acting all giddy.

      so does she actually intend to do anything, or is she accepting whatever happens will happen and just lost herself with the umbrella moment?

      She is in conflict,  She teased him, but when Tasuya want to escorted her to Saegusa house, she refused and warned him about her father. She likes Tatsuya, but rarely took advantage of him or go along with someone's scheme, which make her unique than the rest. 

      One note : there was a pararaph in vol 18, chap 7, at the meeting. It pointed out that Mayumi still doesn't know about her feeling, just like Tatsuya. it stated both of them are in same situation.

      He did, but I still think TatsuyaxMiyuki is how it will end. I honestly can't think of any ending for Miyuki that could be considered a happy ending that doesn't involve her ending up with Tatsuya. Miyuki's character is very heavily tied to Tatsuya, while Mayumi's is not. It would be much more believable for Mayumi to end up with someone besides Tatsuya than if Miyuki did. Also we are assuming that the happy ending he talked about has to do with romance.

      "Happy ending" doesn't tell you much, it could mean just happy she graduates and enters university and things calm down politically without more invasions. Either Miyuki or Mayumi can be very happyif they find love or peace, be it alone, with Tatsuya or anyone else. It might not even refer to much. All we can take from it is probably nobody of note dies.

    • No. 

      My attempt at translating the afterword:

      The story has finally reached volume 18. No matter if it is tatsuya and miyuki, they are going to be third year, there is a feeling that the story is closer to the end. Therefore.....actually it is not like that, recently less descriptive plot, missing plot has become more cared for than before. .......no, maybe the cause is actually the finishing line getting closer. Previously decided 2 volumes of master clan conference turn into 3 volume, is also due to "this must be written in",  "adding this is better"...... Always non -stop thinking of adding content which was the cause. For example, according to the original plot of volume 18, there was no raymond, but even if there is a small difference in the position between him and the other six, even if it is just a hint of the setting, maybe it is better to mention it a bit. When writing halfway through, there was a same thought again. Kyokou and toshikazu part has increased along the way. Just like that plot is continuously added and so, the total volume has increased at the end. Talking about missing plot that I have cared for more, for example, during steeplechase, the coincidental meeting of Erika and Leo, i have been constantly worrying about it. Although there is no plan for writing side story first before writing the main story, I plan to write next about Leo and Erika side story after finishing master clan conference arc. Even said so, it is not a decision that I can make on my own, the only thing decided is that vol 19 is the last of the master clan conference arc. I will quickly write the next book (master clan conferenc part 3), so please look forward to it.

      He said that he does notice her, but he will never think of her as a parthner. He had receive miyuki love but he had not accepted it. To tatsuya, miyuki is still a sister. Taking care of miyuki love is already something he can barely handle. If he were to care for mayumi, it will hinder his work.

    • Yeah, Tatsuya and Miyuki are still in their second year so the series has plenty of time to develop their relationship. I think that having it gradually change is more believable than Tatsuya immediately changing how he feels about Miyuki. Plus they have a lot that they have to figure out, Miyuki is paranoid that she'll make a mistake and Tatsuya will call off the engagement and due to his upbringing Tatsuya is ill-prepared to be in a romantic relationship.

      He may be develops romantic feelings or he maybe not. We just dont know. It takes 16 volumes for Miyuki to confess her love... and nothing has changed except Tatsuya said that he will try. Even in vol 18, he still only sees her as his sister, he is still strugling to change his view, and there are not many volumes left. If Satou wants to solve this problem fast, he would have been closed all other possible routes already. But Mayumi is still in doubts about her feelings.  Tatsuya considered the current situation is good, there even has a romantic teasing scene between her and Tatsuya in this volume.  Satou could let Masaki outright confessed his love to Miyuki, and of course she would reject him (we all know this)  ended his fragile chance . Isn't that the fastest way to sink his ship ?. But he did not. Therefore, if in the next volume, the author still not find a way solves all of this problem, I doubt there will be a clear answer  . It could be a status quo at the end . As this 166.137.244.118 said, there is no need to involve a romantic resolution to have a happy ending, it could be other way around,  Tatsuya could live happily with Miyuki in a brother and sister relationship. The engagement, after all, is a thing Maya planned and commited alll by  herself .

    • So I just read chapter 9. 

      Tatsuya was very disappointed with the mission. the investigation of usna and the meeting of kastuto and others was not successful. Masaki felt anxious as he moved for the search. He feel that miyuki and tatsuya are unexpectedly not intimate. On his way to lunch he received chocolate from 7 girls. Shizuku and miyuki saw it and tease him which dealt a blow to him. Honoka invited him for lunch. Erika tease him about the chocolate which make him uneasy. Tatsuya accepted chocolate from honoka after he told her he has a marriage arrangement with miyuki. Shizuku, eimi, subaru and 2 first year student gave him giri chocolate. At home, He felt strange when he was greeted by miyuki. Miyuki did not give masaki giri chocolate. Tatsuya felt sad for honoka when he accepted honoka chocolate. Miyuki felt that he should have rejected it. Miyuki gave tatsuya a chocolate cake.

As this 166.137.244.118 said, there is no need to involve a romantic resolution to have a happy ending, it could be other way around,  Tatsuya could live happily with Miyuki in a brother and sister relationship. The engagement, after all, is a thing Maya planned and commited alll by  herself .

      I feel like Masaki confessing outright wouldn't fit his character. Vol 15 described him as being on the shy side and interferring in the engagement is more his father's idea than it is his own.

      He may be develops romantic feelings or he maybe not. We just dont know. It takes 16 volumes for Miyuki to confess her love... and nothing has changed except Tatsuya said that he will try. Even in vol 18, he still only sees her as his sister, he is still strugling to change his view, and there are not many volumes left. If Satou wants to solve this problem fast, he would have been closed all other possible routes already. But Mayumi is still in doubts about her feelings.  Tatsuya considered the current situation is good, there even has a romantic teasing scene between her and Tatsuya in this volume.  Satou could let Masaki outright confessed his love to Miyuki, and of course she would reject him (we all know this)  ended his fragile chance .

      It would be stupid for Tatsuya go from 0 to 100 in one volume. You have to consider plot and character development. That's a very rudimentary view you have of storytelling. You don't write a novel with the intent of what's the fastest way of achieving a certain thing, you have to think about how that character would naturally act in that situation, and what's a reasonable way of making a development.

      Most likely, 99%, what will happen is that Tatsuya will realize he either loves or can love Miyuki in a romantic way. Unless something huge happens to take down the Japanese magician system, there will be no status quo ending. Magicians of Tatsuya's and Miyuki's talent are forced to marry early.

      And about closing other routes, the 10MC arc is actually doing exactly that. Lina, Ayako are out, and Honoka and Mayumi are being set up with Shippou and Katsuto. There are actually many more Katsuto/Mayumi hints in this volume than you think. And Tatsuya hardly rejected Mayumi both in this volume and the last one. About Masaki, he was never really in the game, just like Ayako, but Satou is setting even him up for rejection. This is all happening in this arc. Why do you think that is?

      There even not a single flag between her and Katsuto in this volume , their relationship is stricly business. After the meeting, Katsuto invited Mayumi and Tatsuya to have a meal with him. Tatsuya refused his offer , Mayumi is showed a little sorry in her tone because she just missed the chance to spend time with Tatsuya, then he suggested Tatsuya to escort Mayumi cause he has a next meeting. If anything, i think he is more likely a Tatsuya and Mayumi shipper

      I don't think you can compare Honoka and Mayumi in this situation. Honoka has confessed and told Tatsuya that she has no intention of giving up even though he is engaged. Mayumi hasn't confessed and Tatsuya thinks that she is being pressured by her father.

      He might thought about it, but it did not show Tatsuya thinks Mayumi is being pressured by her father when he escorted her or in the entire volume. There was thought of him, at their meeting, that : based on Mari's tone at them time they had conversation, Mayumi must have been being heavy influenced or encouraged by her, even if she doesn't hold romantic feelings for him, when someone closed to her keeps saying it, it still affects her appraisal, even at the slightest level.

      1. You forgot to mention a couple of amusing things. Shizuku gives Tatsuya a bag to transport his chocolates and hide them from Miyuki. Amy was going to give some to Tomitsuka as well but he had already left. When Tatsuya gets home, Miyuki presents him with a chocolate cake. Miyuki questions the bag she has seen Tatsuya carrying. He tells her what it is. Then he says "don't worry, I did not receive any from Saegusa-senpai" remembering last year's bitter chocolates. Miyuki feels relieved. Then she says "Saegusa should know better than to do that as a university student now." Miyuki did not give Masaki chocolates this year because if she did it would have a different meaning. Then Tatsuya tells her about accepting Honoka's chocolates but reminding her of the engagement. Miyuki says that he should have turned her down.
      2. Erica also wanted to make bets as to the number of chocolates Masaki would receive by the end of the day. Miki tells her to drop the topic but she ignores him. She assured him it would be double digits. He's used to Erica's personality. He also didn't realize it was Valentine's and was confused why random girls are giving him presents and running away. Shizuku tells him it was Valentine's day. Erika keeps wanting to talk about Masaki's chocolate record which only contributes to making him feel worse. Tatsuya and Leo try to make him feel better.

    • On the topic of Tatsuya's and Miyuki's relationship ... personally I belive that Tatsuya is going to find a way to love Miyuki.

      After all ... Tatsuya's only remaining emotion is his love for Miyuki ... and while it's currently on the level of 'brotherly love' ... personally I think that it might eventually evlove into a difrennt kind of love ... once Tatsuya gathers enough 'reference materials' to understand his own emotions toward  Miyuki.

      After all ... I don't think that any information regarding Tatsuya's 'emotions' that come from the Yotsuba family can be considering trustworthy ... considering the fact that it was already revealed that they kept Tatsuya and Miyuki in the dark about Miyuki's 'true' origins...

      So, based on that ... I wouldn't be suprised if they kept Tatsuya in the dark ... about his actual emotional state, after he underwent the artificial MCA operation....

      Basically just how Miyuki was 'born' to be Tatsuya's 'life partner' for their entire lives ... Tatsuya's emotions might have been 'adjusted' so that the only 'partner' that he could have would be ... Miyuki.

      Well you should keep in mind that Tatsuya is a very conservative man, he thought that Kanon and Isori slept with each other before the marriage is indencent. With his current situation as an engaged man, he shouldn't have been let Mayumi hangs around with him, let alone touching his hand or snuggling to him, something a man like him would not allowed.

      He probably doesn't know that Mayumi may have feelings for him. He told Honoka that he didn't figure out how she felt about him until the day that she confessed and he was caught completely off guard by Miyuki's confession, plus Mayumi herself isn't sure whether or not she has romantic feelings for Tatsuya. I feel like Mayumi and Tatsuya will be important in each others lives, but that Mayumi will ultimately decide that her feelings aren't romantic.

    • Tatsuya's special treatment to Mayumi - It just might be because, she also when as Student Council President showed special attention. It was also due to her efforts that many other students, not only his friends, started looking at Tatsuya differently and not just as a Course 2 student. Like recommending him to Public Morals Committee, backing him up for the Engineer's position in NSC, etc. She also trusts him a lot, like when she allowed him and Miyuki to accompany her, when she never allowed anyone else not even her friends, during the Elections, or like when she asked Tatsuya to help her in investigating Nakura's murder. In all these things, Tatsuya sure did not want to get involved, but she did drag him into all this and brought upon him much unneeded attention towards him, but the end result was better, at least it was what Miyuki wanted - elevating his status from a mere Course 2.

      I know he doesn' have strong emotions, what kind of a person would he be if he couldn't even be thankful or grateful for all the help and support. There sure were advantages to becoming a Member of Public Morals Committee (not for him but for Miyuki in changing his status). If he wouldn't have been with the NSC Auxiliary team. He might not be at the location when Miyuki was targetted during the Mirage Bat event. Because he was her engineer, he was able to put a lid on the attack before it hurt Miyuki.

      Do Tatsuya Mayumi love each other or not, it's at least not for me to decide. Let Tatsuya and Mayumi realize it on their own (XD Lol). Tatsuya may or may not love anyone or someone specific, but at least he cares for his friends at least a little and all the other people who are nice to him. At least that's what I think.

      In Volumn 16, Chapter 7 Miyuki says the following to Tatsuya:

      Tatsuya was about to protest when he hinted at Hayama for something.
      However, Hayama was smiling as if he was watching his grandchild,
      Maya, who had regressed and acted like a child.


      “Onii-sama. Tatsuya-san, I also want to see.”

      For some reason, Miyuki decided to piggyback in this ruckus.
      It was a perfect coalition.

      No idea if that form of address continued in 17.

      There was a protest at the gate of magic university. Protest got violent with them swinging signboard. Protesters got pushed down, which escalated the situation. Tatsuya and friends were discussing about the protest as it get broadcast. Protesters threw stones and the police. It seemed that there is less people that the anti-war protest. 24 protesters were arrested. Toshikazu was seen at the scene by leo. There was no report of how many people were at the protest. Tatsuya estimated it to be around 500 people. A lawyer critisizing the police for infringement of free speech and assembly which got erika mad.

      The news footage was edited. There was protestor using blunt object to hurt the police. It was stopped by inagaki with magic. The protester went unconscious. No one reported about the assault as they do not want to not link the assault to the protest. Inagaki got a bruise in the process. he felt a headache when he hears about the police. Toshikazu noticed that inagaki has been touching his head often and is worried for him.

    • There was a debate on the night news. Congressman Kanda (神田, anti-magician congressman) criticized the way the police handled the protest while congressman Ueno (上野, the congressman that koichi talk to, not sure if the name is correct or not) defended the police. Koichi was watching the debate with mayumi. Koichi finds Kanda to be unexpectedly calm and was not extreme. Mayumi thinks by doing that it would weaken his points. Koichi feels that Kanda is a clown and it is common for people to take clown seriously. He thinks that emotional speech only appeals to the mindless crowd but the self-proclaimed academics might find the speech childish and him stupid and so, using these reason makes it easier to handle. Mayumi finds Ueno is lacking in this regard. Koichi wants Ueno to extinguish, but not to ignite, and calm both parties. Mayumi showed a strong sense of dislike of his father's words and asked what is the next step. Koichi wants to wait and see and was surprised that the network was on their side. He thinks that this was because of Maki.

      Takuma called Maki after the show. He wanted to thank her for inviting congressman Ueno and using a pro-magician host. Maki answered that he does not need ot thank her, since it was not due to his request, but his father wanted to do something different from other stations and it could get favours from Ueno.

    • Gu jie is unhappy and anxious. His objective is to make citizens antagonize the magicians and japan magicians, driven by society, will sacrifice the 10mc. Yotsuba being part of 10mc will be buried by society. However, he thinks that things will calm down before any major change is to happen. He had sworn to take revenge on the ones that humiliated him but it became impossible when yotsuba wiped them. Unable to find a target, he directed his revenge onto yotsuba. The terrorist attack was to deny japanese magicians of their contributions. He wanted to exact revenge before he pass away. The reason why he is able to be so elusive was due to zhou's connection. Not being able to use hlidskjalf was a blow to him but having loyal allies is more reliable. In order to leave the country, he needed to have to get a stronger pawn, someone stronger from japanese military than enhanced magicians. He remembered from one friend that a disciple of a magician family is imprinted. He thought of a plan to use the imprinted disciple to lure out the people from the magician family.
      There was another protest near the parliament but there was no riot. 2nd high students were attacked by anti-magician people. On his way home, Tatsuya, after hearing the incident, went back to school. The student council was planning to call 2nd high. Minoru, vice-president of 2nd high, picked up the call. Minoru told them what happen during the attack. 6, aged around 20 year old, guys surrounded a first year girl of 2nd high. They started to sprout humanist message. The girl tried to call the police but was stop by one of the guys. Other students heard the commotion and tried to help out. Thus, a fight broke out. One of the girl student used magic to neutralise the guys. The students suffered some major injuries while the guys suffered minor injuries (one of the guys had high blood pressure, the magic cause his heart to beat irregularly). Minoru still do not whether it was excessive self-defense and had to wait for their president to come back. After the call, they were discussing whether this will result in laws of using magic as self-defense, or even worse if magicians have the right of self-defense.

      They are allowed to use magic at their discretion. But right now, they are thinking of whether to have a stricter restriction on magic.

    • So they are thinking of  robbing magicians rights  even more.

      I know this is the plan of the black sage, but in case of an accident or natural disaster, if magicians need permision to use thier magic, the delay will cause tons of deaths. if I remember correctly almost all magicians are military, police, or public safety(firefither, medics, etc). I will not talk in the case of terrorism or all out war.

    • Do you think Major Canopus will end up getting in Tatsuya's way or even fight with him, or do you think they will come to some sort of an agreement and work together to hunt down Gu Jie?? You would think Lina would have told Canopus that she ended up being friends/rivals with Tatsuya & Miyuki when she was in Japan last year. At the start of Vol. 09, it implied that they are both really close, and that Canopus treats Lina almost like a daughter and Lina thinks of Canopus like a 2nd father.

      Since Lina trusts Tatsuya you would think that Canopus would at least entertain the idea of making some kind of an arrangement to work together. For example, Tatsuya can't take Gu Jie back alive, so they will work together to kill him. That way they both will technically fulfill the mission that was assigned to each of them. From what I understood from the spoilers of Vol. 17-18 Canopus mission is to kill Gu Jie, and prevent Japan from capturing Gu Jie alive. Tatsuya's mission is to capture, or at least kill Gu Jie, just so long as he's no longer a threat.

      I think that Tatsuya would be willing to share info back and forth between Canopus and the USNA. I would even bet that Tatsuya would be willing to work with them when they go to kill him. In Tatsuya's mind I bet he would think that working together has a better chance of killing him, than everyone trying to do their own thing and get in each other's way. What does everyone else think about Tatsuya and Canopus working together??

      No. They have different goals. Benjamin wants to kill gu jie without Japan knowing and they have the upper hand in knowing gu jie location.

      The USNA are in Japan withouth Japan's permission, and I can't imagine the Japanese government would be thrilled about the Yotsuba allying itself with a foreign military. They'd probably get kicked out of the 10MC if they got caught working with STARS. Also Tatsuya did kill a bunch of their soldiers after his fight with Lina. Tatsuya and STARS are enemies, even if he and Lina are on good terms. And the USNA government were the ones that supplied Gu Jie with the explosives he used in the terrorist attack. The USNA and Japan might not be openly hostile towards each other like Japan and the GAA, but they aren't allies either. The USNA did send a team to Japan to kill or capture their SC magician following Scorched Halloween after all.

      That would be less entertaining, and as far as I feel, not according to the author's style of writing. I expexct the story to be complicated with some twists and turns. I think that way willbe more authentic /realistic.

    • I do not see Tatsuya or  Maya agreeing with Stars or Canopus. They will not miss such a suculent source of blackmail material to the USNA. They could even use it to naturalize Lina into Japan.

      Sure Before letting Gu jie escape Tatsuya will kill him, but if he can capture him alive he will do so. Also, if you capture him alive he will use him as a scapegoat and the mastermind behind the anti-magician propaganda. Do you imagine the news?

      -Captured mastermind behind the recent terrorist atacks. His name is Gu Jie, former Dahan citizen, Leader of the international  anti-magician movement Blanche.

      -During investigation it was discovered that he was involved with members of the anti-magician party and exerted pressure on the media to foment magicians disdain in the non magical comunity.

      -After this news. the leader of the Anti-magician party has presented his resignation. Right wing party has presented charges for treason and cooperation with foreign spies.

    • During bolume 12, he was the one ordering Zhou to pressure the media.

      Completely the opposite of the utterly revolting voice, the phrases and tone emitted by the corpse were both modern and commonplace. This proved that the one speaking through the corpse’s mouth was no spirit but a living, breathing human being. 

      '“It is as the Great One has surmised.” 

      Zhou respectfully bowed. Though the corpse doll had no gift of sight, it was still able to convey the atmosphere here. At the very least, Zhou’s attitude was not supplicating.  

      “Their mission was merely complementary. The project with the media is proceeding smoothly.” 

      “What is your progress?” 

      “Approximately 40% with televised media and 30% with the press.” 

      “Once you reach 50% with the televised media, begin operations at once. Continue until the politicians beholden to the voters are forced to act.” 

      “As you command.” 

      Zhou bowed deeply and the doll emitted a satisfied aura.

    • Forget about using Toshikazu as a deterrent coz Tat won't even bat an eyelid to kill him if he acted hostile. Implying from Gu Jie's monologue in the spoilers, he has no more another plan to cause havoc and is trying to escape by gainning the assistance from high ranking military officers which resulted in kidnapping Toshikazu.

      The rest of the arc should be the competition b/n USNA(Canopus) and Tat in hunting Gu Jie. Apart from his henchmen and brainwashed victims which might post a threat, i dont think Gu Jie has enough resources to escape either from USNA or 10mc.

      Yes. They were doing some stuff for the student council. Ten plus man surrounded them after recognizing izumi. They sprouted some religious nonsense and some argument happened. Minami shielded while miyuki called the police. They used antinite and broke free of the shield. Then, the book ended.

    • So basically they were just some random protesters who dont even relate to Gu Jie? Then there is no way in hell Miyuki and her cohort will succumb to such minor characters. Perhaps there might be someone who received direct order from Gu jie hidden behind and waiting for an opportunity to strike? But from the context u have said, it seems like they just randomely attacked Miyuki&cos by chance due to Izumi's face being recognized.

      Alternatively, Gu Jie might use a diversion. The sudden appearance of a police to break off the fight might be a ploy to lure Miyuki to let down her guard because there is a possiblity that the police could be Toshikazu who was already under Gu Jie's spell otherwise i can't think of this fight as anything more than a little skirmish to show off Miyuki's maturity.

    • Another thing. For being a military resource, so far the only military personel to use antinite were those JSDF traitors in Vol 8.

It was even written that he can't see the future yet... implying that he'll get the ability in the future. 

      I remember in the remembrance arc that it was written that Miya, or any strong mental interference magician have  very good intuition, which was theorized as being strongly connected to the akashic record.. Maybe tatsuya has an innate mental interference magic, though its probably unlikely..

      But seems like tatsuya will be even more godlike than he is now... dammm

Dammm i feel srri for those mfkers messing with miyuki.

      Overall, my judgment is that Gu Jie is probably not going to be the villain he was hyped up to be. He seems more like the first domino that gets everything rolling (magician hate, etc.) Kind of like the anti-mutant sentiment in X-men. He wants revenge on the Yotsuba for.. i guess taking away his opportunity to get back at Dahan for exiling him. But it's not like the typical revenge of their destruction. He doesn't necessarily want their blood. He wants to lower their status, make them suffer humiliation and have to live sorry lives. He knows that he's going to die soon, but he wants to accomplish his revenge as his last deed.

      Right now, Gu Jie is already practically in the hands of the USNA (they're tracking him through his psion signal). It seems like it's a matter of time before he either dies to USNA or captured by the Japanese.

    • It is kind of funny watching people mess with Miyuki because they don't realize they are like a person waving a match in a dark room filled with dynamite. Even the Branch Families of the Yotsuba don't understand how insane it is to even think about injuring Miyuki. The Shiibata head said it is not necessary to injure Miyuki which means he did consider it. Yotsuba Maya is loving watching Gu Jie and the Humanists dance closer to the edge of destruction and they don't even realize they are doing so.

    • I also found it ironic that Miyuki is so in love with tatsuya (and therefore in fear of him breaking off the engagement) that she tones down her bro-con tendencies. This is to the point of Masaki thinking he has a chance (lol). Like when he received chocolates, he thought Miyuki was getting irritated. Or that he perceived Tatsuya's relationship with Miyuki to more like an escort, than a couple. 

      I laughed my ass off when the Crimson Prince is played for a fool basically by tatsuya's friends. They all know that Miyuki's #1 is Tatsuya, yet nobody breaks it to the poor fellow. We even have Honoka using him as a pawn to distract Miyuki. 

      It was also funny when after Masaki barely passed the test (10 sets of changing the color of the balls in exactly 30 sec), they were at the cafeteria and then Mizuki tells everyone that Tatsuya passed it on his first try.

      Yea, but the source i gave just have a first part of it.

      First part is Dream Game, second part is Dream Game -Crossover- and last part is Versus II


      There is Dream Game crossover, which has been translated and there's Dream Game. Side stories written by the author and which were released with the DVDs. The stories are different. This is what Tatsuya was thinking about in the crossover with SAO.

      I don't know what it says, but the image of the pages look legit. The only thing I can tell is that it's something about MKNR Vol.19. It doesn't look like a doujinshi, or some other kind of fan oriented adaptation. The style of the characters drawn also look like the original artists works. Maybe somebody on the wiki can make out the Japanese characters in the image, and then translate it.

    • Is Satou Tsutomu trying to make me hate every female character or something because it is nearly mission complete. The only female chracters I do not hate right now is Miyuki, Mizuki and Erika.

      I especially hate Honoka, Mayumi, Shizuku and Mari. Miyuki and Tatsuya are the only OTP I will accept, they are engaged and both of them are willing so WHY is everyone trying to get in between them.

      I mean come on why is Mayumi always trying to hit on him and dress slutty when he clearly not responding and why is Honoka trying to get between them and even using Masaki to do it and why are their BFFs encouraging them to get between an engaged couple.

      They of all people should know of the relationship between Miyuki and Tatsuya is love and deep care. I mean I understand Masaki not understanding because he barely knows them but they are their "so called friends" so they should understand.

    • Miyuki and Tatsuya only having feelings for each other and no one else so they should be together. I mean he did say he will eliminate anyone that wants to hurt Miyuki without a second thought, I am assuming physically and mentally. He will always put her before anyone else no matter who.

    • First of all, tatsuya emotional state is not known to everyone. Second, shizuku does not want honoka to continue. Third, Tatsuya does not love her like a couple, only cares for her like a sister. Fourth, when did mayumi dressed slutty in vol 18. If you are talking about the hotel scene in vol 15, then it is way before they were engaged, and was said to be cousins.

    • Honoka knew about Tat's emotional handicap(not in details though) from love confession in v5 but she might choose to believe otherwise. Anyway, considering her character as well as her "element gene" her obstinacy is still understandable. On the other hand, Mayumi... well her character do help to paint the story more vibrant. However, i personally dislike the fact that she likes to play coy and flirt with others for instance Hattori despite knowing his feeling and his serious personality, she still lead him on. Not to mention the way she acted in v15, she really fell me big time. Btw, i do not remember she used to dress like a slut though?

      Nevertheless, it is getting on my nerve that instead of focusing on deepening plots, Satrol chose to write about the MC's love interest and highschool love drama. Hence the story became stagnant and boring. Don't get me wrong i do love reading the interaction b/n characters and their subsequent pursuing love but not in every chapters in the volume.

      My thoughts exactly.

    • There is always a possibility that the current events in the story are nessecary for the future events in the story to make sense for the readers. 

      For example the whole events related with Miyuki'a and Tatsuya's engagment could provide the impact / fuel that causes the rest of the Ten Master clans to unite against the Yotsuba clan in order to try to weaken their power ... through some other means.

      Or it could be the last, more or less peacful moment that the MC are going to have....

      Basically we don;t know what Satoui's mind has thought up , when it comes to the rest of the story and how the events of the current arc are going to relate to thiat.

    • Mayumi lead on Ta-kun by letting him undress her in vol 15, that transcends the realm of slutyness in this LN, which implies a “marriage before sex” culture at least among mages. I am sure Ta-kun never even undress his sister before and if she fought out about this back then, Ta-kun would be frozen and placed neatly in her closet now.

      I honestly don’t like this PG-13 romance epically in this type of culture, come on man Ta-kun was a killing machine at 6 years old and have killed over ten thousand people before turning 18. The guy is a mass murder with little to no emotion. Why is the focus on PG-13 romance and not the plot, I could understand a little NTR(or even alot) but PG 13 romance when this book is mainly sold to young adults? I guess that why SAO is number 1 cause the romantic culture and the story setting fits together well.

    • Can anybody who has read Vol.18 write the chapter summaries, on the Vol.18 page?? It will probably be a long while until Vol.18 is translated, so I was hoping that I could read the chapter summaries. I read the chapter summaries for Vol.16 & 17, and they gave me a good idea of what the volume was about.

      • Spoiler*

      Toshikazu might be brainwashed by Hiegu, or even worse, turned into a "corpse doll".

      At the very last of vol. 18

      Mizuki is engaged by humanist near their school.

    • Links to the fan translation are not allowed in this forum because this series is licensed by Yen Press. Summary are still fine but not full translations of a book.
