>Crab Guildy is just super fast in the novel and Souji takes him out after a Busou Renkin-style afterimage skit.
>Miharu's chuuni elemera is getting stronger and attracting chunis to her cafe. The scene has a "time traveler" salaryman come in ask what year it is before asking for a drink and leaving right after. Miharu didn't even know the guy and played along perfectly.
>Aika and Twirl heatedly bond/rant over Souji's lack of interest in the female form after the former catches him fondling his twintails early in the morning.
>Mikoto is actually a formidable bodyguard and her maid uniform is specially customized for said purpose.
>She's trained in martial arts, can unleash a flurry of kicks without exposing her underwear and blocked Aika's punch with a cross guard leaving only her left sleeve in pieces
>Twirl was really looking forward to her transfer student scene but the original HR teacher nonchalantly summarized her details before introducing Mikoto as their new PE teacher. She didn't get any of the reactions she wanted out of the class.
>Aika and Souji try the childhood friends eye contact communication trick. He tries to message her not to go berserk if Twirl tries anything but she thinks he's telling her to do whatever it takes to stop her.
>Mikoto's intro scene scares the class into catatonic states cause they're too afraid of getting dragged into her absurdities until she scares the girls into worrying about turning into christmas cakes
>She singles Souji out for staring at her twintails and tries to get him to fill out the marriage registration form but Aika rushes across the room to punch her to which she puts up a cross guard at which point
>The girls cheer her on. Souji doesn't know why.
>The form Mikoto handed to Souji is her 528th copy
>Levia Guildy is a hardboiled motherfucker that was friends with Drag Guildy
>When Swan Guildy admonishes him for insulting his commander, he gutpunches him with his front tentacle. He continues insulting him but his tentacle is doing the angry shaking fist bit.
>Elemarians return to being part of the world after death so they don't get graves. Drag Guildy however has his room filled with his mens' Tail Red figures to serve as one.
>Levia Guidly leaves a breast pad for him and tells him to rest easy and open his eyes to the wonders of cowtits
>Aika instant kills Buffalo Guildy while he's going on about fake cowtits at a swimsuit contest after learning what his elemera was and displays her demonic countenance in front of the tv cameras as she scavenges his dust for his elemera orb.
>Even Souji says she went too far and that they're not fighting for personal gain. He wouldn't have known who was the villain if her didn't know better.
>She's so happy about her spoils that she goes banzai in the air while carrying Souji away from the crowd. Knowing what comes next he poses so that he'd leave the å¤§ character in the asphalt
>Aika keeps trying to jam the cowtits orb into her elemeration slot to the point she's biting down on the orb and smacking it into the slot over and over to get it to work.
>Cowtits reject her completely and she completely depressed by it.
>They've got a bunch of elemera orbs but they can only activate a handful due to their purity and affinity.
>The Rabbit(ears) elemera gives strong legs.
>Miharu debuts her cosplay side and mortifies Souji even further. He's getting stomach ulcers and the mortification factor is more than enough for any son to turn to a life of crime.
>Twirl and Aika are adamant about not roping in more people though it's implied Twirl mainly doesn't want to put more people at risk.
>Souji is completely terrified by how far Aika would go to have larger breasts during the yellow gear's development.
>The guildy meeting between large and small busts play out like on /a/ until news of dark grasper's inspection scares everyone into cooperation
>Krakeguildy is a serious knight type. So far he and Levia Guildy don't get into the rows that their men do.
>Fenrir Guildy, Underwear Elemera, tells his boss that he'll be the new wave of Ultimaguil and that he thinks twintails don't have to be their core target.
>Krakeguildy warns him what he says is heresy, almost drawing his sword at him and he bids adieu in a snaky fashion
>Krakeguildy notices he's suddenly gripping a silky A cup bra in his hand, either as "a token of acquaintance or to serve in place of a dueling glove".
>Aika childishly hyped up at the new tail brace's completion telling Souji to watch her transform
>Twirl offers Souji to try it after Aika fails and he's actually tempted to since it should be a normal girl's body instead of a loli. He'd really like to tone down Tail Red's popularity.
>The gear feelings scene follows though with heartier lines compared to the anime. Actual reason why it won't respond to Aika though...
>Twirl and Aika are moved enough to admit that the former didn't actually intend to follow through on elemera hybridization and initially did it for revenge while the latter straight up admits to planning on killing Twirl in cold blood as soon as she got breasts
>They let bygones be bygones and head out to fight guildies
>To be precise, Aika's plan wasn't to outright kill Twirl after getting breasts but to have her way with her for an extended period of time while keeping her just barely alive enough to keep her heart beating
>Levia and Krake Guildy take a stroll through a plaza for flat and cowtit twintails. This whole encounter was just golden and really should have been adapted.
>More people now sticking around to watch since word got out that guildies try not cause casualties
>Tail Red shakes Levia Guildy's devotion to cowtits
>Krakeguildy drops down on one knee and proposes to Aika, awestruck by her beauty
>He offers his sword to her and calls her the princess of his heart
>Twirl chimes in about Aika being a slut who's weak to flattery and how it's in women's nature to do so and tells Souji accept the disillusionment at this revelation.
>Souji wonders what's left for him to be disillusioned about after all of Aika's and Twirl's exchanges
>"When I swore on my sword to the leader of the mighty Ultimaguil beyond the sacred veil, he said thus to me: "Find yourself a fitting master for your blade for I already have your soul. Go seek out the one you should be wielding it for yourself." At last, the time for the great leader's regards to bear fruit has come my princess!"
>"Err, no. I am grateful for your feelings but we're enemies and there's..."
>"You who bears the most supremely flat chest, my exquisite princess!"
>".................what?" And then Aika was the demon.
>This is where Twirl postulates that Aika's flat chest was too ingrained into her being that cowtits would be impossible for her and says she might as well hook up with her very first fan.
>"Say Twirl. Before we get home, you should take a shower while you wait."
>"Oh jeez Aika-san you kidder. No matter how much reaffirmed our bonds, that's still too much of a step up out of the blue."
>"...don't you want to leave behind a clean body though?"
>"S-s-souji-sama! Please defeat it! That is the enemy! A threat bigger than the elemarians, that will destroy the world itself! You are the only one who can take it down Souji-samaaaa!!"
>"Sorry but I have two formidable ones right in front of me..."
>"...That's just how it is then. These damn elemarians... Oh forget it. I don't really even care. I just feel like letting loose and going wild. Did everyone evacuate already? Will insurance still take care things once I turn the whole place into an empty lot?"
>Souji's internal monologue: It's over... The earth is done for.
>Souji hears a cheer from a little girl in the crowd and internally apologizes to her not being able to stop what's about to happen. He looks for the owner of the voice.
>"It's the prez again!?"
>"Oh crap. If they notice the prez that stupid knight is gonna go after her! After all her chest is even smaller than mine... her chest is smaller than mine!!"
>Leviaguildy: "Hmm. She has some nice twintails over there but those just aren't going to grow into cowtits. There's no way around that."
>Krakeguildy: "They are certainly fine twintails but there's not even the possibility for the Small Bust affinity to sprout forth from her! It's a given that small girls would have small chest! There is no reason for my heart to be aflutter over that!"
>"I see... It's not a given in my case then... haha... hahahahahaha!!"
>Aika gets ready to pounce on Krakeguildy but he unfurls his countless tentacles and shows off his true form to her.
>Aika can't stand the sight and screams hysterically in disgust and breaks down in terror.
>"Why do you tremble so, princess!? This is the manner in which I would court you! It is proof of my boundless love!"
>"Noooooooooooo! I got proposed by tentacleeeeees!!"
>"Waaaaaaah! This is your fault! It's because you didn't do anything at all after all this time... And now my first proposal is that thing!
>I am bewildered as Aika blames lays the blame on me for something I don't remember doing.
>"This is too much! For things to turn out this way!"
>"Calm down! I've been proposed to about 10 times in the past few days too you know!"
>"You got proposed to by a beautiful maid! But I... I got proposed to by tentacleeees!"
>Understanding there's no point proceeding this way, a dissatisfied Levia Guildy drags Krake Guildy away by the shoulder telling Souji to make sure to wipe away his partners tears till their next battle. Souji gets that the guy was doing it for their sakes and wanted an even fight.
>Krake Guildy cries out to Aika but as he gets dragged through the portal gate he shoots out a tentacle towards her in the way a pair of lover about to be unwillingly parted would.
>He traces out something in the palm of her right hand.
>"A. O... Q"
>Aika says the alphabet-like sounds aloud and passes out. I haven't got faintest idea what they mean.
>Aika's body glows as she does meaning her transformation's about to cancel out.
>Souji fires off an aura pillar to distract the onlookers and quickly carries Aika's body into an alley.
>Souji talks with Twirl about it and undoes his own transformation but Twirl informs him too late as he does so in front of Erina who's at standing at the alley's entrance.
>She faints at the revelation and Twirl instructs him to quickly undress her and take blackmail photos to keep her quiet. Souji objects obviously.
>Mikoto shows up and promises to keep quiet and help so long as he explains things.
>They head off to Miharu's cafe with the unconcious girls.
>Souji finds the shop closed early and objects to his mom about leaving the self-proclaimed time travelling salaryman outside in the dusk.
>They take the elevator down to the lair.
>Souji's been carrying Aika piggyback and tried to wake her up by shaking her but she's still out. He's a bit embarassed by the heat of her thighs on his fingertips.
>He asks Miharu to help wake her up but she just grins and cranes her neck.
>"Mfufu~ I really love that part of you Aika-chan~"
>"I just said she's still knocked out didn't I?"
>"Oh yes~ She should continue to stay knocked out properly then~ Keep at it Sou-chan, you are a boy after all."
>Just now I felt Aika's twintails shake... Must have imagined it. Aika wouldn't like how I'm carrying her so childishly like this when she wakes up. Still... Aika was this light... When I was watching building demolition footage before, I wondered to myself how long it'd take Aika to do the same and it turns out that same Aika was such a slender girl.
>Once they're at the console room Twirl goes up to them.
>"Wake up already Aika-san! You're getting piggybacked even though you don't have anything to press down on him with! There's no merit to it that way! It's just hard labor carrying around a load like this!"
>"Good morning Twirl. I hope you've already taken that shower..."
>Like a monster that got mowed down by a hail of bullets and upon being approach as somebody asks "Did we get it?", Aika suddenly wakes up. Awakening with such perfect timing, Twirl gets attacked.
>Erina wakes up and they explain things to the newcomers.
>Souji offers her the new Tail Brace. Mikoto thinks he meant her but she can't transform with it at this point.
>Erina says some unintentionally lewd lines that impress Twirl and asks Souji to put the brace onto her her hand.
>When Erina mutters to herself that it's just like an engagement ring, Aika snatches up the brace from Souji and puts it on Erina's wrist herself.
>Erina doesn't test out her brace there as she lets out a yawn. It's 8 o'clock and her bedtime s in an hour so they have to leave.
>Aika sulks and calls Souji an idiot since he said it'd be the two of them fighting out there together.
>He tires to point out the pros of Erina's inclusion but Aika tells him that's not what she meant and storms off.
>"I... I'm afraid of tentacles, okay!!" she says as she proceeds to glare at him before leaving with a "hmph!".
>Miharu and Twirl are roleplaying evil organization in the background with the former having changed into her general costume. Twirl pleads for another chance and Miharu tells her if she keeps on failing she's going to lose her place.
>Sparrow Guildy informs Fenrir Guildy that Dark Grasper wants to see him.
>He takes it to mean they've recognized his worth. Sparrow Guildy knows better and just watches him walk away.
>He finds himself in a brightly colored room that would burn at his eyes.
>He sees Isuna sitting on an evil throne-like chair playing eroge.
>He's shocked to see the true nature of Dark Grasper and is put into a cold sweat as she shows off her superb eroge related skills i.e. unboxing, disk inserting, loading and smiling creepily with no consideration to her observers
>She riles him up calling him a child that immediately sets the text speed to the highest setting whenever starting a new eroge and that the idea of him wanting to lead his own corps makes her laugh.
>He tries to attack her but cuts his sword in half and sends him off to a dimension where filled with sweating men in their underwear
>You can have loose lips. You can clown around. You can even have your preferences. We'll even overlook your ambitions. As a part of Ultimaguil however, make light of the Twintails affinity and you commit a crime that would disallow your very existence...
>She cancels her transformation back into regular old meek Isuna and unreservedly continues playing eroge so she can study how to be worthy of "that person" i.e. Twirl
>Erina tries out her tailgear at the twintails club after school and gets into various tokuisms like transformation poses
>Aika tries to get Erina to swap gears when she sees what it does to her breasts
>Souji slips up and says "Twirl's Boobs" in discussion. Twirl reaffirms what he said and sets it to be her new ringtone. She's been recording people apparently.
>Said recording comes into use quickly as the elemarian alarm sounds off and they head out to fight
>Bull Guildy is trolling a middle school for flat middle school girls
>Aika objects to it and asks why when his boss wouldn't be interested in them. He simply says that they're in his strike zone age-wise.
>Due to Aika's remarks about breasts, Souji wonders if borrowing breasts is a ragular thing girls talk about.
>Erina brings out weapon after weapon to use on the Ultiroids but none of them are very effective.
>It gets to the point where they're confused at how they're not being blown away and one of them taking pity on her and acting like he got hit real bad like the way a dad would when playing with his son.
>Souji watches Erina falls to her knees and tells Aika to take care of Bull Guildy while he takes care of the Ultiroids.
>Aika just casually tells him she already defeated him and holds out his elemera orb. Souji now considers her a God of Destruction to all things relating to breasts.
>Erina tries to give up the tail brace due to her pathetic debut but Souji tries to reason with her
>She comes cleans about her actually hating twintails since they're childish and that they're just tradition in her family
>Souji goes through a brief existential crisis at the idea that someone could actually hate twintails at all
>He then gets into some seriously hotblooded persuasion about her not actually hating twintails.
>A notable remark is that saving the world is the secondary priority to his prime objective which is to save twintails.
>Things proceed to the point where he's dropping niceties and grabbing hold of her triggering her M tendencies
>It caps off with Souji saying that her twintails lit up.
>This makes someone ask what the hell he was saying. Souji himself wondered that as well.
>They head off to train in a quarry.
>Twirl suggests they lob boulders at Erina to get her going.
>Souji pep talks her up and says he wants to see the real her.
>He notices it's suddenly oddly dark even though it's not sundown yet.
>He looks around to find Aika singlehandedly carrying 60metre sized boulder large enough to block the sun out from them as if it were a volleyball.
>He simply asks "...Aika, what are you doing?" without showing his shock.
>She's just trying out the Bloomers elemera which turns to give simple gravity manipulation.
>Aika wants to repay Erina for never demonizing her like everyone else does and looking up to her as a hero. She lobs the boulder at her like the universe class meathead that she is.
>Souji follows Twirl's instructions and commands Erina to show herself to him.
>She blasts it away and quickly dives deep into her M side blasting everything else
>Souji tries to stop her but alas a reporter gets footage of her lewd berserker ways
>Back at base they watch the news featuring Erina followed by the nation's leaders squabbling away about calling them twintails
>The girls have a group hug as Aika bonds with Erina over becoming a dark hero
>Souji considers becoming a dark hero himself as he watches the pandemonium unravelling on the news show
>Meanwhile at the Ultimaguil base, Levia and Krake Guildy resolve themselves to the final fight with the twintails and put aside their differences
>They go into the meeting hall and shut down their respective PCs
>As they head out, Levia Guildy tells Swan Guildy that he is a warrior that he looks forward to seeing in the future.
>They wait for the twintails at an abandoned construction site without back up
>Only Souji and Aika are there and they agree to take on Krake and Levia Guildy respectively
>Aika thinks she'll be okay until Levia Guildy reveals his expanding front tentacle to be his spear
>He rushes her into the defensive until Souji rushes to take a blow for her, crashing into her as he does
>Krake Guildy disconnects two tentacles to tie him up
>Aika is fidgeting on the ground about Souji having touched her chest
>Souji thought he crashed into her back
>Souji senses twintails nearby and spots Erina hiding away at the construction site's entrance
>He realizes that she's anxiously waiting for the perfect time to rescue them just like in her superhero shows. He feels like he wasn't supposed to see that.
>He guesses correctly that she's waiting for a certain line
>"It's over Tail Red!"
>Erina blasts him
>"Tail Red! I won't hesi-"
>Twirl cuts her off as she shows up as Kamen Twintail
>She mocks their love of breasts and shakes them to their core as their appreciation of them is hollow as they'd never know what having them is really like
>Aika comes to her senses during the breasts ham-off. They pissed her off to the point where her eyes were completely bloodshot
>Twirl disappears when she notices that
>Krake Guildy goes on talking up her flat chest and Aika leaps after him
>Levia Guildy takes the blow for him the way Souji did for Aika earlier
>Limiters off, Aika proceeds to pummel him into the ground with her fists over and over until she blacks out next to him
>Levia guildy tells Krake Guildy some parting words lamenting the dissonance of flat chests and cowtits
>Erina pops back in
>"I won't hesitate anymore..."
>Souji tsukkomis away at her insistence on setting up hero cliches
>She faces off against Krake Guildy by closing in on him as questions her battle qualifications
>After getting distance, Krake Guildy launches all of his tentacles at her
>She stands her ground blasting them off
>She's almost overwhelmed but wills her twintails into anchoring themselves into the ground to support her
>At the end of it Krake Guildy has only his sword left and Erina's purged all of her armor
>He asks her if that's all she had and they face off for their final moves
>He charges at her with his sword but she strikes the ground and leaps high into the air
>Her armor parts follow suit behind her as the form the unite weapon and she performs her brake release rider kick
>Here her twintails anchor her back to he ground once she lands unlike in the anime
>Krake Guildy's body collapse and the tentacles binding Souji release him
>However things aren't done yet as they head towards Levia Guildy's body and attach themselves to his head as makeshift twintails
>Souji faces off against LeviaKrakeGuildy's three tentacles which manage to stop his sword and break it
>He questions their squabbling about small and large breasts when he loves any and every kind of twintails and how their pettiness prevented them from winning if they had just worked together from the start
>"After fighting Drag Guildy you should have realized the truth of the world! How easily you're manipulated by our hands, how we plant the seed and also how we steal away that affinity away! You should know how fleeting it is and yet you fight, little girl!!"
>"I know! That's why I fight! It's fleeting so I have to protect it! Even if it's not perfect I'll make the world bloom twintails! That's my mission!!"
>"Even if that's so, we don't understand! Unlike we who live off elemera, you can still survive once you've lost your elemera can't you? So why do you fight? Why do you put your life up on the scales and choose to fight to protect elemera!?"
>"You just don't get it at all! There was no need to balance the scales to begin with!"
>"It's always been weighing down on them! There's nothing to compare!"
>"My Twintails are my life!!"
>He aura pillars up a path to them and leaps past the tentacles and pierces them with the blade burning them to a crisp
>"Very well... Our howling hearts will shine on, whether truly or not, we will turn into stars and watch over you! Untainted and pure, push forward with your love of twintails! We will continue to look over you till its end comes for you!"
>"As long as you love twintails, you'll always be watching."
>Until the moment my life is completely exhausted, my twintail affinity will never fade away.
>Afterwards, all that remained was of the Blazer Blade. They pierced into the ground almost as if they were a pair of grave markers.
>Cue epilogue and the first meeting with Dark Grasper like in the anime
