Heck, I'm sure they can turn a date night full of incidents into something romantic anyway. See: end of chapter 2.

That proposal scene is still one of the best of the series imo, but all of it is pretty great. Looking forward to how much better the inevitable real proposal will be, though

There will absolutely be a chapter, that will begin with them wanting to kill each other, will consist of them demolishing the neighborhood while fighting each other and will end with them kissing passionately. That's non-negotiable.

Not to say that I think the manga would be better if he was more suspicious of her, it's just a very funny blind spot for this otherwise overcautious super spy to have.

Same for Yor, who completely bought that a car chase with gang of criminal is a completely ordinary event in the life of psychiatrist. I love the implication that them being super spy/super assassin their whole lives, their expectations for physical prowess and general competence of an ordinary person is just completely skewered.

"Yes, of course she kicked that grown man through wall, what's so weird about that, everyone can do it, no?"

Even though this chapter wasn't as packed with gags as usual (not saying there weren't any, or even that there were few), I liked it. We needed a chapter that makes it clear where exactly is Loids and Yors relationship (pretty much nowhere) and sets up a starting line from which it can develop further and this one did it nicely. Also Yor and Yuri are apparently family of superhuman alcoholics and this both amuses and terrifies me.

Anya reacting in the background to thoughts and inner monologues of other characters is one of my favorite running gags.

Anya is a Diclonius and this is actually a canon sequel

Oh my god, extremely embarrassing memories of what edgy teenage me considered great anime came flooding in with that name.

Curse you!

The thing that shocked me the most probably was the fact that Yors wound actually didn't just magically heal with a good night sleep.

Yor... What kind of life have you had up to this point...

Also that looks like a VERY good (future sight) boy!

It actually kinda makes sense - the vast majority of dogs Yor encountered were probably guard dogs of people she was sent to assassinate.

Also people are sleeping on Becky and the fact that she considers pink tank, or pink jet, a suitable presents for her.

I mean Anya DOES know everything about Lloyds mission and is dumb motivated enough to try to finish it on her own.

Ania going "Time to solve this crisis! Oh wait, I am 4-years old, I have no idea how any of this stuff works!" was very powerful.

Bond is extremely competent good boye. Anya is extremely incompetent cutie. I hope Yor will never stop living in her own bizzare fantasy world.

This manga is incredible. I don't think there was a single weak chapter so far.

While Daybreak was the highlight of this chapter, I just want to focus for a bit here on how super wholesome it was for Twilight to not change anything about Anya's scores.

While I recognize that introducing a love rival is super cliché move, the chapter did actually pretty good job in making me like Nightfall and I hope she eventually ends up with the only man fit for her - Daybreak.

I thought it'd have been obvious, what with Yuri's uniform/job, his nation being 'Ostania' and the whole setting being set in a not-Cold War, it was obvious it was Not!East Berlin.

Reminder that Twilight's main target is wealthy businessman as well as leader of a Ostanians nationalistic party and a plot point in one of previous chapters was his company buying out the company of one of Damien's schoolmates. Which doesn't really track to communism, even Soviet-era style communism very well.

She held down a job and lived on her own for years while maintaining her cover. That requires a certain amount of general life skills, even if Yor's domestic skills have more enthusiasm than effectiveness.

You just made me realize that unless she lived her whole live on takeaways and restaurants, Yor had to be able to eat, survive and tolerate her own cooking.

Yeah, I just remembered that we were explicitly shown that she cooked for herself and Yuri when they were kids. Ooof.

Yeees we are finally getting focus on Yor. I'm all here for it.

While it's fun to theorize about it, I think it's far too early to go for Loid vs. Yor showdown. We still don't know basically anything about who is employing Yor, or how, or why, so I assume this will be about the organization (Garden?), the various characters in it and their relationship with Yor. We were already teased about like 3 of her colleagues in this chapter, I assume that at least one of them will be introduced soon.

It's always different than what i expect might happen, and it's always better

Yeah, this. A slow start, perhaps, but I'm really liking the focus they are giving to Olka and her son who might, or might not be an esper. Also of course Yor is bad at the bodyguarding, her whole thing is being a murder savant.
