Nobody allowed to know the boss' identity can reveal it. This is an ironclad rule.

The only one who can shit on all the rules is the boss.

Pretty weak writing, but it does telegraph "I am big bad boss" like no tomorrow.


Weak writing or not, now it's pretty obvious that Suzumebachi wasn't killed to protect the boss's identity, but for other reasons.

So what's the point of killing a character that is just about to reveal who The Boss is, if the The Boss is just going to reveal themselves right after?

Oh and it looks like the spoiler from kuraiaku posted on Dec 21 is real after all, so the ending is even worse than this boss plot.  Oh goodie.

LOL I didn't expect someone still remember my old spoiler for the ending.

Yeah it's a fake spoiler, the true ending is

Spoiler

This last chapter tied up the story very nicely, I liked it!

I don't even know what to say.

 

The manga started out decently strong with neat insect trivia, and now its just basically making up magic powers and stupid retarded asspull plots.

Fuck you, author of this manga.  Children's books are better written than this shit, learn how to fucking write a story you asshole.  Give me my hopeful expectations back.  This makes Bleach's plot and ending look good by comparison.

IMO

this manga story is quite good, the immortality thingy is so so...(if it irritate you then I advise you to not read Murasaki iro no Quoria) but the Insect thingy..well...the author know his stuff

 

Guess he/she did a lot of research...although several things in insect information is not up to date or...not quite accurate.

Back to topic:

I guess its never cross Alice mind that her greatest enemy will propose to her  Hahahahaha

If she accept, will she become seme or uke? LOL

"There must always be.....A Suzumebachi!" *vanishes into thin air*

I wonder if the far right sent death threats to the author after this?

 

Why would they?

So what's the point of killing a character that is just about to reveal who The Boss is, if the The Boss is just going to reveal themselves right after?

There can only be one Suzume-bachi at a time, the guy would still die anyway. For all the bad decisions along the way, this one was actually not bad at all.

There's also this possibility:

Being revealed and revealing yourself are two different things, or rather the person who learns the truth will react differently to each situation.

If wasp guy had revealed her identity too early, Alice would probably see her in a more negative manner, as an enemy.

By revealing herself she made Alice become surprised instead, making it easier for her to listen and/or accept whatever proposition you might offer.

It's also comes with pseudo-immortality, not entirely a bad deal if you want to be a shadow leader for a multiple span of generation.

Good point, It really comes down to what you would use the ability for that determines whether it's superior to you or not IMO, and I happen to appreciate the Army Ant ability more.

Huh, everyone's complaining, but I'm actually enjoying this and am on board with this ending direction. I think probably because I never really took the story seriously to begin with, so it being pretty arbitrary doesn't really bother me.

 

Also, weirdly, I'd actually be okay with protagonist accepting the position. It'd be kinda cool?

bamboozled again

I just don't get why the whole "conquer the world through force" is always the idea these shadow leaders decide on. I mean for fucks sake you have UNLIMITED TIME couldn't you just manipulate things slowly to the point of converting everyone to one single "religion" where you reign as eternal goddess? Taking time and again to move things subtly so eventually it all comes under your control in the end. The world leaders answer to you because you have dirt on every last one of them. Making the masses comforted and complacent so they don't bother fighting for control. Finally, ensuring that no matter what happens if you go.. the world goes with you regardless preventing some uppity leaders from trying to "force you out" I mean.. really TIME is something she had a ton of.. and she pisses it away on wars? It's a trope that needs to stop because it's just NOT LOGICAL.

Saying that Japan was secretly okay with getting two atomic bombs in the face is quite bold, even for fiction. I wonder if the far right sent death threats to the author after this?

Does anyone else think her power is a much shittier version of the Army Ant ability? I mean the only advantage it has over the Army Ant as far as I can see, is that it lets them retain their memories and act like a human being around others.

I think we all should've learned by now that writing isn't this author's strong point.

This latest development isn't just an asspull   it feels lazy.  The author decided to repeat the same trick, but in a way that completely invalidates the deaths of two central characters. 

No. JUST. NO.

 

I can understand insect-themed people, but the Boss...NO.

Well if you read back, although kind of an ass pull, it explains why she wasn't able to kill her during her rehersal, why she felt sick, threw up and lost all focus but couldn't understand why it was happening to begin with. 

No. JUST. NO.

Christ I thought it couldn't get any dumber after the whole HEART ARMOR bit. What's next what could possibly happen next that will make this shit look normal in comparison. 

That cliff was just wrong on so many levels..................

Arachnid: the only manga where you get tits AND learn new stuff about insects! your mind blows up when you realize this series is part educational lol
