The armor transforms into a sword, and a sword that transforms into a staff kind of like a switchaxe?
Ngl, I really like the weapons in this series

is Melua's suit a Kamen Rider reference?

I don't know how to send images but it looks very much like Brave's Level 1 suit

Sometime's other series (Hero-san and Former General-san) references Kamen Rider quite heavily, so it's no surprise that there's a KR-esque suit in this too and the eyes are drawn similarly, so it seems the general appearance here and in the other series is inspired by KR Ex-Aid.

I don't think Melua's suit specifically references KR Brave, though. It's more a result of them sharing a similar motif, in this case, a knight's armour.

Well, that’s one of the less racist portrayals of goblin I’ve seen. Still not super great tho.

Because . . . REAL goblins are much nicer than their portrayals in fiction? Whu?

I think it's more that a lot of fantasy races, or at least the characterizations applied to them, tend to be modelled after extremeley dated stereotypes of ancient civilizations (voodoo tribes and the like).

This looks pretty racist if you ask me…
It’s not the worst I’ve seen but like, it’s pretty bad.

The goblin designs or the graffiti doodle? It just occured to me that we haven't really clarified whether we're arguing about "the goblin designs are racist" or "this is racist towards goblins". Cos design-wise they just seem to be the typical Japanese yankee type.

Most of the goblins seem like parodies of various yankii types, yeah, but the one doing graffiti has Dreadlocks so, that seems specifically targeted at black people to me. combined with manga’s statement that goblins are soulless monsters who must be exterminated, and it’s starts to seem maybe a lil’bit racist?

I understand that the author probably didn’t intend for it to be and the design is probably based more on modern yankii emulating hiphop fashion, but put all together it doesn’t really look good.

Hmm, feels like a stretch to me. Maybe if all the goblins were rocking distinctly PoC-fashion that'd be dubious, but to me they just seem to be taking rebellious hairstyles from all across the board. Not to mention there's a fair few Asians who have worn dreadlocks, such as that "one thousand troops" guy from Konami decades ago. (Whether they should is another story I won't bother touching here.) And tbh, there's no point in getting overanalytical about bog-standard JRPG staples.

Classic goblin depictions tend to involve early medieval technology (swords, axes and such, light to medium armour, metal helmets) combined with a social structure of territorial tribes smaller and less formal than nation-states. The main groups who fit that description would be Germanic and Celtic . . .

I believe the gag here is she has no idea how to use a phone, hence all the typos.
(I too know the pain of a beginner trying to type Japanese text on a smartphone)

Well, Melua certainly had an interesting reaction to Utaho questioning the nature of their amnesia. I wonder if she remembers more than she lets on. That last few pages certainly seem to hint at some differences in how they were discovered.

That's a lot of new characters introduced so suddenly but they do all seem interesting and unique but I don't think I'll be able to remember them all, at least not for a while, so I might also just call them classmate person for the time being. The teacher seems pretty fun too...

Among them, we've also got what's pretty obviously an official couple already!

Really cool to have a yuri pair already while the main one keeps developing and they're the chill x cool type too! on top of that, the cool one has what it seems to be a stalker too in the classroom hahha so not only we have a side couple but they have their own plot going on too.

Every single character's name is a pun.

Also not only the side couple, but it seems Elf is also dating the woman she was texting on the phone, so 2 couples in the same chapter. Needs Yuri tag asap.

The last speech bubble on pg. 29 seems off and I can't tell if she's saying she's already solved the mystery or if she will solve it.
