I do not own this manga, so I will be reading fan translations online. I am going to be doing shorthand descriptions on each chapter. These descriptions are really more of a reminder to myself about what all I have been able to read so far. Sorry if this bothers anyone! I will do a full description on the final review page of each series I read.
Every post past this point will be a spoiler, so please read ahead with caution!
ch25: the golem has a soul wavelength. Sou’s been using enchanter techniques to encode his memory genetically for 800 years; he’s lived for 30 lifetimes O.O also he’s a demon weapon, specifically “Evil Demon Weapon and Puppet Engineer, Giriko”. Maka offers 15 pieces of candy to Ragnarok to get him to join the fight. “The Heretic” witch, Arachne (the oldest of the 3 Gorgon sisters) dispersed her body as spiders 800 years ago and hid her soul in the golem in order to hide from Shibusen. Witch Arachne made the first demon weapon by using a witch’s soul. Lord Shinigami dispatched Justin Law as backup to Maka’s group. Chrona vows to protect Maka who can’t move because of being touched by Arachne’s spiderweb wavelength
ch26: Arachne is Medusa’s older sister and thus Chrona’s aunt. Justin Law arrives! 4 years ago, when he was 13, he became the youngest death scythe in history; he did it without a technician (he’s now 17). He can also read lips xD Arachne withdraws and Justin defeats the golem. Soul’s hard on himself for being unable to fight despite being the “same type of weapon” as Justin and Giriko (but he’s kinda’ not?). Maka has to ride back to Shibusen in the coffin attached to Justin’s bike xD Chrona gives her flowers for the coffin xD Arachne’s butler, Mosquito, meets her and Giriko in the forest with a limo and champagne; they arrive at their castle and their awaiting organization, Arachnophobia.
ch27: at Baba Yaga’s castle which is 2,000 meters underground; that’s Arachne’s castle apparently. she’s developing a machine called “the demon tool – morality manipulation machine”; it’s almost completed. Arachne has employed Mifune the Sword God to guard Mosquito while that machine is finished. we meet Sid’s partner, Mira Nygus, who is the interim doctor (Shibusen goes through a lot of doctors/nurses; this makes 3 so far?). Black Star signs Maka’s face because she can’t move xD he also offers to get something she dislikes to put next to her (I think he’s trying to help?). Black Star overhears Sid and Nygus planning to go after Arachnophobia; he vows to join the attack because they’re on enemy of Maka (such a sweet & reckless friend). Soul continues to resist the black blood. Sid and Nygus breach Arachnophobia. Black Star triggers the alarm at the entrance.
ch28: Black Star VS Mifune. Sid places explosives around the machine. Tsubaki’s clan is the one that Arachne made. after Mifune cuts down Black Star, Tsubaki invites him to be a teacher at Shibusen; he def likes the idea, but he couldn’t protect Angela there. we learn about Mifune’s past: he was a bodyguard for the Deniro family, but when they sent him after the witch Angela, he saved her and ran away. Mosquito threatens Angela’s safety if Mifune doesn’t kill Black Star; Mosquito gets shot by Azusa -wielded by Sid. Mifune compliments Tsubaki as a good sword, and she blushes a lot xD he also gives some candy to Black Star to give to Maka. Then he vanishes. Black Star delivers the candy (I love that the characters change outfits in this series! Black Star with a hat was super unexpected to me xD ), but it’s seaweed flavored.
ch29: Medusa’s snake gets into a dog, then a little girl named Rachel. the morality manipulation machine was part of Eibon’s book. Medusa (as Rachel) goes missing. Maka returns the class. Black Star’s been dueling (with witnesses as required) more often; it made him late for class, so Stein made him stand in the hall; he’s won all 10 duels without using Tsubaki, and even when he’s in the hall, he uses it as strength training -balancing on only 2 fingers. Stein’s going to be teaching Duel Arts/Opposition Studies to help combat Arachnophobia. Stein gets Ox & Harvar, Maka & Soul, and Black Star to try Team Soul Wavelength; they fail miserably xD Medusa arrives at Baba Yaga castle
ch30: Medusa only survived the fight with Stein because the Kishin was revived; she was also the one who betrayed Arachne to Shinigami-sama. Medusa already has Erika, the Mizunes, and Free in Arachne’s organization, looking for Eibon’s book. Kid’s house is called Gallows Mansion. Liz tries to hook up with a cute guy at the party, but Patty and Black Star pretend to be her kids so she strikes out xD everyone reiterates to Chrona that they’re friends ❤ Kidd, Liz, and Patty have to leave the party; Shinigami-sama gave them a mission: retrieve the demon tool in the the Runaway Express before Arachnophobia gets it; they’re going to the Sahara; the Runaway Express runs at 500KM/H, so no one but this group can catch it. Kidd can’t be burned by the sun and because of his repellent constitution, he rejects poison and apparently hair dye; he can’t fix his hair even though he wants to; this is all because he’s a shinigami. Kidd and co find the train, but Arachnophobia’s Fisher King is already on the train; also, one of the Mizune sisters is going after it!
