Did my reading early this week! Curious to see if Orca turns out to be acutally good or still bad! In any case he seems to be quite strong (or overpowered one might say) :rofl:

Not counting the first page, the chapter was fairly easy to read for me. My remaining questions this week:

Grammar/vocab related questions

Page 165

S165_1
I don’t understand the use of negative here. In the previous panel ヘリカ screamingly wants to know why Tousa is now an ally to them. I believe that in the panel shown both speech bubbles belong to Tousa and in the first she is saying: Like I said, I’m not saying! But then she proceeds to tell them anyways (she is doing it to apologize and fix her relationship with umi-chan). That to me seems like a contradiction… That’s why I was wondering, if this is some kind of special use of negative again, where the meaning is actually positive? (then the tranlation would be something like I’ll tell you!, which would make more sense to me…)

Who is talking? Same-kichi? Does he say Don’t stay… If so: Why does he not use imperative form? My other guess is that this is Wadanohara speaking and that she is saying 以内 (inside, within). So basically: (He went) inside. But I’m unsure if 以内 can be used as a stand-alone phrase like that…

Story questions

Page 162


My interpretation of this panel: Meikai (whose spirit is part of/in the staff?) is talking to Orudo and only Orudo hears it. Is that correct?

Page 171-172


Is Fukami slowly but surely loosing his mind because of his jelousy towards Same-kichi? I suppose the sea of death is feeding on negative feelings and increases them? Until the “victims” slowly loose their mind and only dwell in their negative feelings? Is this interpretation somewhat accurate?

Thanks! And a huge thank you again to vocab-sheet contributors! :pray:

Not sure if it helps, but here’s how I like to think about these kind of negatives.
If she were saying “I’m not saying!” it would be:

だから言ってない! => literally ‘That’s why I’m not saying (it)’

Instead, her dialogue is:
だから言っている ではない!
だから言っている => ‘That’s why I’m saying (it)’
ではない => ‘isn’t it?’ Or in this case “am I not?”

In this case “it” refers to the text in the next panel; that she apologized to Umi-chan and they reconciled.

Page 170

Yeah I found this scene pretty confusing too so I’m not sure… it seems to me that Samekichi goes through this door, but the next moment Wadanohara looks through the same door there’s just a void… so I think she’s muttering “いない” as in “he’s gone” or “he’s disappeared”.

Page 162

Not sure either, but my interpretation was that Orudo looks at Wadanohara holding the same staff Meikai used to have, and he internally loses his will to fight her. I thought the 馬鹿馬鹿しい was just him trying to act tough and call the whole situation ridiculous/dumb. In the next panel he acts fed up and leaves.

I am also confused about pages 171-172 …
