Haqua of the Rebellion


I’m still skeptical with Dokuro’s actions and intetions. If anything, this might even be a plot to tail Haqua and grant Vintage free access to corner Keima. But let’s try to read the mood a bit and invigorate ourselves with these turn of events.

Ever since Haqua’s involvement, all we saw are her failures. There’s nothing special to her ever since she sided with Keima yet in this chapter, Section Chief Dokuro became the proof of how good Haqua truly is. Never mind her dojikko moments with Keima, let’s go deeper back to how she was back in the academy.

A girl with no talent nor lineage rising among the ranks and graduating as class Valedictorian. While the thought may even be held as a joke, probably amplified by her recent screw ups, this chapter simply reminded us of Haqua’s potential and if anything, the misfortunes that she experienced so far may even be due to a “bad start”. Now that the series is reaching what I would think to be its climax, it is refreshing to see Haqua differently. With her celestial robe gone and her scythe as her only weapon, I expect Haqua to draw out miracles that would be able to overcome her current situation as well as Keima’s and the Goddess’ battle against Vintage.

    Will see what Haqua can do. I’m still skeptical about her ability to live up to her potential at the moment.

    There were lots of funny statements Dokurou made about Haqua. Listing her faults and failures, but also highlighted her achievements and potential. Dokurou’s depth in knowledge about Haqua and Dokurou’s position in the squad (potentially gives her the ability to spy or access to spies) makes me wonder if Dokurou might already know everything that is going on (including what is going on with Keima, Vintage and what else have you).

    I don’t really see Dokurou having any hidden agenda, except maybe to get Haqua to live Dokurou’s dream? I mean, if all Dokurou wanted to was getting Haqua to lead Dokurou to whoever was working with Haqua, there were lots of more straightforward, easier and much more effective ways to do it. Getting Haqua to cast doubt through the torture, then set her free, would seems like choosing the hard way to do it for no good reason, other than setting things up for the fan service in this chapter.

    Well, she no longer has her garment right? That instantly makes her 10x less useful.

    Haha, well jokes aside, Haqua has proven to be a lot more useful than Elsie, and having someone who’s in tune with Hell is probably very important for Keima. Keima’s in sort of a bind right now, so he’ll need all the help he can get.

    I guess I do have my suspicions of Dokurou, but considering how he(she?) tried to give the airheaded Elsie a prestigious medal in an earlier chapter, Dokurou can’t be too bad right? Or so I’d hope :/

    that’s quite harsh tsuki but… it does make sense. after all, Haqua’s manipulation of her robe benefited Keima in so many ways. with it gone, I wonder how Keima will be able to create his scenarios. Let’s face it, Keima has become quite reliant with that item in creating flags =|

    Well, Elsie isn’t too bad with her robe either. Even though she isn’t good enough for more advanced usage. For the moment at least, Keima will have to do without the help of either Elsie or Haqua. The next few chapters should be interesting assuming that Haqua won’t be back so soon. I also that even without that robe, a demon should still have some abilities of her own.

    The new chapter 162 is out, Keima is back in action 🙂
