Re: [1591] there's no way...

If he really is based on the protagonist from the manga "Please don't bully me, Nagatoro!" then he is in fact anti-magic. In Warhammer 40K terms, he's a Blank - his very presence would cause magic to fail because he is the epitome of the mundane. So... that's why the concealment spell just failed.

Re: [1588] things left behind

I would expect there has been a lot of talk off-camera. We simply do not know what the state of their relationship is, and commitment does not necessarily have to be spelled out to be understood. Given Piro's declaration "I don't want it to be easy, I want it to be right" [931] I think there is a re...

Re: [1587] problem multiplication

I'm pretty sure Dom and Ed are still single :shock: True, but I hardly think either of them "scores high in empathy", let alone any loyalty to TPCD. (Oops, missed a page - I'm with Roamer on that one) For my money she hasn't noticed. Someone at the Foxhole will. Problems will continue to multiply.

Hmm. I'm not sure about that. Simply living in MegaTokyo appears to be a course of action that may result in becoming an organ donor or an experimental test subject.

I could see either (grand ^n -)parental suppression, or naturally hidden development being the explanation for the non-manifesta(il)tion, but I'm not buying the idea of the loneliness curse without some strong on-comic evidence. On another note, I hope Fred decides to count threat assessment as this...

Navarone. I should probably have put it in katakana.
