Major Events


By order of appearance:




  • Saten's expression when she was shielding Uiharu (having stopped Uiharu from shielding her) and about to be hit by the feather is similar to the expression Honoka made during the escape from the lab after kicking Kimi away and just before being shot to death.[1]


  • The scene where Kimi put some of her blood in Uiharu's mouth is shown when she explains how a person needs to have some of her blood inside them for her dragon's feather to control them, otherwise the salt in their body would just go out of control, which happened when Saten was hit by one while shielding Uiharu.[2]

Unanswered Questions

  • Uiharu's appearance changes towards the end of the chapter due to her hatred against Kimi. Is this merely an artistic effect, is it related to the effects of Kimi's ability or is it connected to her own power?
