This could be longer! Smoothly Axed??

In this case.. the Author was sick and wanted to end the series early instead of leaving it open ended

Why is it the mangas with the really interesting characters always get axed? Are the readers in Japan really that shallow and superficial?

Here's my version of it.
Mawatari Yuzuko pursues strength, getting stronger, winning at all costs. She has abandoned her humanity just to continue fighting and continue getting stronger.

Spoiler
She wants to crush her opponent, every time she speaks or thinks of doing so she feels "sublime". She has never won without doing so throughout the whole story as far as I remember. So she didn't achieve enough strength to achieve ultimate victory, rather it would have been considered a narrow one. Plus if she lets her continue training she'll have someone strong to compete later and will thus have further room for improvement. In such a manner she also spars with Sanae occasionally as shown in the far beggining of the manga.
 
Now perhaps we can hope for further continuation of the manga some day, with the G-Girl tournament for stage, where we will indubitably see Natsuo crushing at least the gold medal wielder.

She slowly descends into more powerful and deadly techniques and learns ansatsuken thus absorbs the satsu no hado and becomes a demon

She didn't throw the match she just got beat. Just look at the timing, she only saw her brother the moment she lost. Sick manga, good to have a different kind of protagonist. Wish there was a little more resolution with the brother but it seems like things just go on which is hella realistic. 

Goodbye Natuso, one my favorite female protags ever.

This was a great manga, but the whole backstory angst thing just didn't click for me.

Whether you found Natsuo's characterisation convincing or not is a different matter, but I'm pretty sure that she didn't "throw" the match. She clearly tried her outmost and still lost, it's just that by losing to a girl as abnormal as Mawatari (who, in real life, would probably be some kind of functional sociopath, the way she's portrayed)  she feels that she "Won at being normal", a.k.a her abnormal talent did in fact have limits to how far it could carry her.

Huh. And with so many uses of the word abnormal, I feel like I'm writing a Medaka Box review. Anyway, that's what her last "I win" means. At least that's my interpretation of it.

so she wanted her brother to care so that's why she threw the fight?

natsuo faked a rear strait and went for a knee when mawatari shot in for a takedown but grazed the knee on purpose to throw the fight on perpose???

someone please explain!

Can anyone explain the whole yuzuko thing? What was she missing / what did Natsuo mean when she said she wasn't like her?

I can't believe I actually seen a very cute chapter, nice final chapter mmm...

Yes! °final chapter° Nooooo! Yes! No.... Yes No Yes... Nooooooo! It's over.... I want more QQ

I'm more think that she is referring to herself. Its more like she feels envious of mawatri and is talking about the part of herself that will not allow her to be like everyone else. I would say it was more like self inflicted punishment. In fact it was she who cornered her brother until he had to lash out the way he did. The thing is that he probably knows this and thus the reason as to why he decided to come. 

 

The whole manga was pretty much her trying to repair her relationship with her brother. So for her, that's the happy ending.

 

It's not really shown but probably she's changed now and is more cognizant of not inadvertently attacking other people as she did.

Yeah this is one of my favourites, thanks for scanlating this!

I love that Natsuo has the personality of Skeletor.

Sometimes it's nice to see a story where the hero ultimately learns nothing.

So that's why the ending felt rushed.  That's too bad, this manga was a favorite.

People were happy that he didn't die in the middle of making last chapters.

Great manga, I hope it gets a sequel.

 

To the translators, thank you very much for bringing this to us. 

damn. I really want to see the G-girl fight. What's up with hyping the east vs west gueen...

 

Probably another case of a manga getting axed or something. Unless the mangaka plans to make a sequel manga or whatever in the future, dunno but I agree, it's a damn shame.

I don't think so. According to 4 chan threads (not really reliable info but oh well) the mangaka has some serious illness and had to finish his script in rush. That's why the ending feels off and there will be no sequel, most probably.

So that's why the ending felt rushed.  That's too bad, this manga was a favorite.

Haha, funsies 

I enjoyed this ride a lot, thanks Author and translators.
