Description: Hatou Manabu (nicknamed Gaku) has a very odd friend at school named Marii Yukari. Yukari has purple eyes and a bizarre way of looking at the world: she sees all living things as robots. This has not always worked out well for Yukari, even costing her a best friend when she was younger. However, Yukari insists that the things she says she sees is true, and her vision seems to give her insight into the abilities of others.

Gaku thinks she's just weird, but she soon realizes that Yukari has unexpected talents. It seems she can fix anything, and even the police come to hear her insights. It turns out that Yukari's purple eyes are not unique in the world! However, there is one important distinction among those who see humans as other objects. Do humans appear as unimportant as objects, or do those objects appear as important as human beings?

why didnt yukari just use her robot everytime she is kidnapped ?

I'm quite interested in how the author thought up of this theory and implemented it in the form of this manga.

Do you know the Schroedinger's cat?

Do you think the cat itself can alter it's own state?

Gaku is inside the box so she can't alter the state of Yukari's death. The solution: get out of the box.

 

She's now an entity only capable of observing, but as she observes, she forces the universe to take a path: she "collapses" the probability.

Nice explanation. Well done putting things in a concise and orderly manor.

 

But I like mine better:

 

Gaku has exceeded reality to become. . . .THE NARRATOR.*fanfare*

Manabu became the universe itself?

Manabu became the universe itself?

I dunno, man. I expected her to either become everything or nothing, but it's kinda like...both? I guess she transcended the universe and she's an outside observer now? She observed everything, then vanished, but what exactly was it that vanished? Her body, her consciousness, what else? I thought the past where Yukari died would be set in stone now, but it was undone instead. I guess the observation of her death was fundamental to meta-Gaku and so it disappeared with her? EDIT: Oh, I like the idea that this is the next universe.

 

Also, I wanna hear more about Yukari's significance to the universe. I find it strange that "seeing living beings as robots" is apparently of bigger significance than painting the theory of everything, but I guess that's the anthropic principle at work. Gaku did say even 1+1=2 was our fault. I'm reminded that robots come up a lot in discussions of free will sometimes, like are we deterministic machines or something more. I have a feeling Yukari's perception is related to that.

Oh, one more thing. I wonder how come Yukari didn't catch on to meta-Gaku earlier? I don't even know what she is right now, yet she recognized her somehow. Why now?

Manabu became the universe itself?

 

I think it's more like this:

 

Spoiler

Wow so she became the narrator?

 

So meta.

guessing since yukari sees things in a mechanical way, looking at it as like a software kind of way, she's able to see/hear the narration 

my brain right now is to fried from this manga to word stuff

Manabu became the universe itself?

Wow. As always, thanks for this release !

 

Although I'll always wonder why Gaku didn't ask Yukari to place many more parts in her, who knows if it wouldn't have had even more effects ?

 

I mean, Yukari told Gaku she was fully moddable, and yet Gaku was satisfied with just one mod. I'm not saying that more is better by principle, but in my eyes it's as if Gaku's particular existence had a purpose and yet she refused do to fulfill it.

 

That is, funnily enough, answered this chapter. "There is nothing wrong with it, so there's no need to modify it." (Referring to the Earth in this case) Which gives a nice perspective on the reason Yukari is willing to modify anything.

 

Also, Manabu didn't recieve a mod, she was "repaired", and because her "parts" were easily interchargable with other parts, Yukari could use her phone to do it. However, the extra functionality is not a mod, but a side-effect.

I'm getting more use out of this picture than I thought possible.

Seems like the author thought the editors were going to cut his series and he just blew up the scenario and said "See? There is no way I can end it quickly now!"
 

 

Its based off a light novel so its the opposite. The editors are probably like when are you going to blow up the plot like in the novel...

Wow. As always, thanks for this release !

She doesn't want to involve Yukari, as it would clues her into what Manabu is doing (especially if she ask for something like weapons) as well as disrupting Yukari's 'normal' life.

 

Also she learned from her loops that even if she tries to protect Yukari directly, it still won't ends well due to her being limited in what she can do alone.

Oh jesus why.

5 chapters left

Good job Manabu. Finally Einstein can rest in peace.

OMG THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

If I recall correctly, there's one more chapter left right? I can't wait.

Wow. As always, thanks for this release !

O_O

 

This chapter

 

That ending

 

Does this count as cliffhanger?

 

My mind is too blown to ponder

WOW! Is the series over?

 

pretty sure no.

WOW! Is the series over? That was an amazing ride, and somehow, that last scene really got to me. Thanks sooo much to the scanlators for finishing this series for us! :D

Wow so she became the narrator?

 

So meta.

Whao.

 

She did it.

wow... the last time I saw this series was last year when the manga blow up my mind about her OP powers and stuff... guess I'll go blow up my mind a bit more now.

...

So I just started.

And..

Well that escalated quickly.
