The most dangerous thing...
Hello everyone, pleased to meet you. I'm new in this thread, so please be lenient towards me and my circumstances: I'm in your care now.

That said...

I LOVE THE RECENT DEVELOPMENTS! This is so awesome and dramatic and cute and I just want to hug everyone.
Upon the highest thrones of the world, we are still sitting on our asses.
Yes, this arc is cute and fluffy but if they use it as an excuse to extend the series by not giving Azuki the main role I'm going to get soo mad. Just end it already. It would be perfect that way.

[up]Really, after this, I really don't know where you can go with Azuki's character, and Ashirogi. If it goes back to Status Quo, with them missing out on Azuki getting in, Azuki will become a total Living MacGuffin. And really, if that happens, I may seriously drop the series.

So yeah, new chapter up and all that.

Well, guess that's the end of this whole thing. The big question that remains is "now what?"

Watch her genuinely fail the audition after all that.

At this point I would sincerely prefer to have a final arc and close the manga. It seems a nice point to end. Extending beyond it may be too much.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if this is leading up to the ending. No need to drag the story out forever.

I call bullshit if that happens, because it will feel like a complete Ass Pull, and could have been done without the previous arc. I prefer that this arc will tie up Mashiro and Azuki's relationship plot. The series could work from there, with Azuki becoming more of a regular character, hell, maybe even have an in-universe "Well now what?" from Mashiro, and the final arc being the resolution of Ashirogi and Nizuma's rivalry.

Now that the story has gone mainstream even Satan himself wouldn't turn her down for that part. Publicity for the show, fear of fan backlash, fear of media backlash, internal desire to not be a huge dick... For all that, "talent alone" talk sounding nice, she could go in there with a cold and laryngitis, cough, wheeze, and rasp her way through the audition, and still get the part.
Sometimes the question is not, "Am I being misanthropic?" but rather, "Am I being misanthropic enough?"
The Trope Seeker
[up][up] This. So much this and agreed.

And as long as they don't rely on using another nonesense with Nanamine, everything's gonna be fine from here. The story doesn't need an eyesore like him at this point, even as an excuse to stretch out the story. The resolution should be exactly as he said and that Azuki should have more regular appearances from here.

So, I'm reminded that if people in fiction did the sensible thing, it would be be boring. Probably more Drama Ball than Idiot Ball really, but... Gah!

While it's certainly not the surest way to achieve their dream, it is a pretty clever way to silence the controversy that would exist no matter what which result occurs.
In honor of my 50lb pup
Considering the cercomstances, I have to agree with the producer on this one. By having open aditions, you mitigate the number of people who will be calling to complain about who gets the part. Once people know that it was the public's decision and she is not getting the part because of her connections, most will accept the result.

What Jump should do is give Reversi a color page or two anouncing the part casting. That is likely to get more people to vote and a significaint number of those people would be mostly-impartial to the people auditioning (not everyone who reads manga watches anime).

Not much for "in univerce reactions" from this chapter (because it is not pubicly anounced yet), but I am looking forward to the reactions after the next chapter.

I would agree if not for the fact that the most likely voters are going to be 2chan trolls. If, as mentioned, they can give it a lot of mainstream publicity to dilute the fat bitchy otaku vote, then I can see it.

.....Well, that's rather needlessly dramatic. Oh well, we might be getting some good scenes out of it.

I pray to the gods of Fiction that this will be the Grand Finale, though.

I have a feeling it may not be the Grand Finale that we'd like it to be. I don't know why.

With any luck, we'll see Ririka again as one of the contestants. Perhaps this time wossname, the failed mangaka, will really overplay his hand and be exposed.
Isn't this just some of "filler"? If Azuki will get the gig, so I don't understand why must they drag on for another few chapters. If this turns out to be reason that Azuki doesn't get the gig, then I'm sure there is a massive outcry from the fans that Ohba/Obata are trolling the fans.

I dunno if it was intentional, but good move, Azuki!
