New entries on the bottom.

    open/close all folders 

    Paula's guns 

  • Where does Paula keep her guns? She's not shown wearing holsters, nor do we see any other place to store guns in that outfit.
    • A shot of her doing a flip show them strapped to her cape. It doesn't explain why the cape is still so light and flexible enough to flap in the wind, but at least we see where they are.

    Holiday timings 
  • Why was there a Christmas story in February, followed by a New Years story in March? Is Naoshi Komi working with a two-month delay without knowing it?
    • Standard practice is that chapters are written 2-3 weeks ahead of time. As for the rest of the time, I can't account for it.
      • It probably just happened that the author decided to have that sort of story in February, and the one about New Years in March was a natural follow-up (it would be weird to get a story about the mid-December festivities and then suddenly get a story about, for example, Golden Week, would it not?).

    Security 

  • Why is school security so lax? Paula brings grenades into school and openly reveals them, and no trouble starts.

     Mrs. Onodera 

  • Mrs. Onodera casually mentions Kosaki's feelings for Raku in front of him. How does he still not know about Kosaki's feelings for him? Or alternatively, how is it that such a massive plot point causes no reaction?
    • Perhaps he just assumes that the mother is trying to get them together, to get him to inherit the family business.
    • In retrospect, Raku is aware that Kosaki has a key and that they knew each other ten years ago. As awkward as they are around each other, they are both aware of each other's feelings.
    • He probably just wrote it off as a joke, considering the kind of person her mother is.

     "Zawsze in love." 
  • Where did Chitoge learn the word "Zawsze?" It seems a bit strange for a half-Japanese/half-American girl to be learning Polish vocabulary at age 5.
    • As recent chapters reveal, the words are present in a story that she used to read.

     English class 
  • Why is Chitoge even taking an English class at Bonyari High? As a native speaker, one would expect she could test out of it with ease, considering that an 11th grade foreign language class is roughly the equivalent of a 4th grade class for native speakers.
    • the easy A. it's not uncommon for people to take a language class that they know already to boost their grades.
      • Actually, she does not have a choice, in Japan (and some other places in the world actually) you do not choose your classes, but rather you are assigned to a class and different teachers go to that class to teach. Every student in the class sees the same subjects, she can't opt out of it.
