That was not easy, what with the revelation that college just got thesis-scary. Many thanks to Efter for all her hard work with the cleaning and editing!

Translator Notes: There were a couple of phrases I struggled with, particularly on page 24. The original Japanese said something along the lines of "insane retaliation, but we'll eat it", which I couldn't make much sense of, so I did my best. In any case, I hope you'll enjoy the chapter, other than that line, everything is business as usual.
*Please don't upload this chapter to a reader, I'll do it myself when I've finished the entire volume! Thanks for understanding!
[Spoilers Beyond This Point!]
If there's something I can't stand in translation, it's jargon. Unfortunately it looks like plenty of this volume is coated in the stuff, so it can't be helped. Thankfully, the material is still as good as ever; I have to say I am a little tired of the "if you're a man, go save your woman" tidbits, but seeing as this is Eureka Seven, I can live, and I still love the manga and the original story to bits. I don't have a whole lot of analysis this time around, mostly because I'm tired and it's a school night, but I did want to point out that Anemone's asphyxiation was pretty interesting; I'd never seen her react that extremely and hopelessly to the cruelties of her situation.
