Magnolia Chapter 9

It's been a busy past few days.  First a planned real-life thing happened and then an unplanned family emergency happened.  Fortunately, all is well and life is back to normal.  Anyhow, here is "Magnolia" chapter 9.  There's a nice little flashback in the beginning that confirms many of our suspicions and then we get on to fun with Hollier.  Hopefully those people who were initially put off by Hollier will warm up to her by the end of this chapter.  She's good girl with good intentions.  And now the links:

Spoiler Alert!  Spoilers Ahead!
My Thoughts on the Chapter:

Hugo seriously needs to change his tactics regardless of his goal.  I don't think uncontrollably pouncing upon Ayato is scoring any points.  A little self-restraint would be nice.  He is a soldier after all.  Perhaps he should try talking to Ayato over lunch or something.  Talking is good.  It helps to build a trust relationship.  If Hugo continues down this path, Ayato will be on the look out and won't go anywhere near him.

Hollier!  She's a sweetheart, but I fear she's destined for a broken heart along with Nagi.  I hope all the Hollier-haters will give her character a second chance after this chapter.  Hollier's cute!

Nagi!  Fight, Nagi! Fight!  I want to huggles him so much!  What an awful position to be put into!  I hope he explains the situation to Ayato and that Ayato understands and is gentle to poor Nagi.  Nagi...T_T

Next up is "Yukarism" chapter 4.

A reminder about J+K:  Shouoto-sensei is talking a month off from J+K, so chapter 10 will not be released in Japanese until late May.  Because chapter 9 has a nasty cliffhanger and chapter 8 does not, I've decided to do a double release of Chapter 9 and 10 during late May/early June to save us all the pain of waiting two months after a nasty cliff hanger.
