It's usually called "manslaughter", but the innocent devils have it as a reflex and don't care about it.

I have no idea what Sensei wants to do though. A society made out of innocent devils would be ungovernable and no one wants to live near someone who can kill them without thinking about it.

Sensei doesn't "want" anything. She is simply obsessed with innocent devils and considers regular people boring compared to her "research subjects". In a way, she is even less human than the devils.

Can't see this working out for professor since her pet is starting to get jealous now.

This reminds me a lot of the manga about the girl who was attracted to serial killers/people who had the potential to become one.

It was just as campy, and had mostly the same artstyle.

Took me a while to warm up to this manga because I couldn't notice the difference between 'devils' and regular psychopaths. Silly me since the manga spells it out for the reader.

Still, now I kinda understand the 'supernatural' tag. Killing without the intent to kill seems pretty absurd.

glad that there's a boy innocent devil even if it's a shota

"the strongest shota" made me literally rofl for some reason

I have yet to understand if Kyouka (or whatever the secretary with big tits is named) is an innocent devil as well, or if she's 'only' a sadomasochistic psychopath.

Akane's jelly~ LOL, so she does have emotions~!

A mental condition doesn't give you super powers.

That probably explains the "supernatural" tag then, doesn't it?

Trying to utilize super-human psychopaths seems like one of the dumbest ideas humanly possible.

Seems like they'd be useful if you wanted a lot of people killed, and that's a large and growing industry, which has been consistently well-funded throughout history.

That isn't what Kamijou is thinking though. It sounds like she had a revelation and is on mission based on faith alone, rather than following some kind of rational plan.

I guess it's a nice way of saying "we want to sell them as super soldiers, assassins or whatever dirty business comes to mind".

Also, rodent extermination. You really need Innocent Devils for that icky job.

How do you even pioneer new industries with innocent devils. What of commercial value could they have that doesnt exist already. .
Doesnt make sense.

Is she just not going to face repercussions for stabbing a child?

Never underestimate the ability of the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry to sweep inconvenient murders under the rug.

Is she just not going to face repercussions for stabbing a child?

 

Given that the kid was basically collateral damage to a battle that the government doesn't want the public to know? Yes.

 

If anything they probably went in with possibility of collateral damage in mind already, especially knowing that devils will do ANYTHING to survive, others' lives be damned.

Spoiler

Is she just not going to face repercussions for stabbing a child?

OK, now I see the difference between "them" and psychopaths...

Aren't these innocent devils basically psychopaths (ie incapable of feeling emotion) ?

from the little that was shown until now it's a type of psychopathy, the kind that's normally not a sociopath and only kills as the means, not the end. And they have feelings, but kind of different and can prioritize, of sorts. Of course normally it's not that ease to weaponize it as shown in here, if it's really "just" psychopathy, but hey, manga. (I'm not a psychologist, neurologist or anything like that, just have a friend that is one and is a nightmare to his therapist)

will batoto ever get a "crazy bitch" tag?

this work here really needs it and Its almost a genre apart from psychological horror.

...Well, that escalated fast.

The tone of this is absolutely atrocious. It's like it wants to appeal to the lowest common denominator with the lol so random loli sensei and big titty psychopath, and then it suddenly wants to be dark and psychological in the blink of an eye. Settle for one or the other, don't do this awful attempt at mixing the two, because it just doesn't work.

I think the schizophrenic approach lends the story a certain charm.

The work is highly stylized, prioritizing narration over realism. This can detract from the reader's emotional investment - Akane's flashbacks feel so out of place that they just do nothing to elicit sympathy, but they do effectively highlight what an unstable and broken person she is.

On the other hand, the little domestic scenes between her and Kamijou do make me feel something for them as characters. They draw heavily on stereotype, but in a way that serves their personalities. Kamijou looks like a child, but there are no silly gags where she's mistaken for a kid. Instead, her appearance ties in with her anxious and excitable nature (there are silly gags, but those more often reference the stereotype of the distracted professor, lost in her research and out of touch with societal norms). Akane is adept at manipulating people, but she's not a stereotypical sociopath. She feels sad, and she genuinely cares for Kamijou.

Overall, I'm still not sure what (if anything) the author is trying to say. This might just be a pulpy slasher story with a veneer of psychological analysis. I think it's trying to be more, but even if that's all there is, it's still a lot of fun.
