Idamaria opposes Father Selma's plan to accommodate Kucabara and Bichura at the church, but can't stop the priest from allowing the pair to stay. Why does Idamaria so loathe Kucabara? Is it because he's a demon?
The female exorcist will have to continue sucking it up, partnered as she is with Kucabara in training, Wiki explains in its Defense Devil volume 4 summary. And apparently, Idamaria cooperates long enough to
produce dark matter and fuel Kucabara's powers.
Defense Devil 4 compiles Judgments 6 through 9:
The Key to the Demon World (Parts 3-9),
Night before Departure and
Invitation. In conventional numbers, that translates to chapters 28 to 37. [*NOT Elex Media/Shonen Star chapter titles]
Maya plays Puck in the Tsukikage- and Ikkakuju "Midsummer Night's Dream" joint production. Initially, the stage was to have been the Athena, but Athena's management refused to let the play run, forcing the actors to consider the park next door as their outdoor stage. At Hayami Masumi's suggestion, they decide to perform for charity in the hopes of attracting a bigger audience. Pull in enough viewers, and maybe, just maybe, they will be allowed to move to the Athena theater.

Fukuchi Tsubasa's ping-pong love comedy graduates from Shonen Star serial to tankou.
Before Marunouchi Gaku left his childhood thweetheart Tamano Kako for parts abroad, he promised her that they would date each other when he returned. But when Gaku finally comes home, Japan has already passed the Law of Takkoku, which stipulates that before you can confess your love to another, you must first win a table tennis match against that person.
The thing is, Kako is the number one table tennis athlete in all of Japan and Gaku has never even played ping-pong. What's more, Gaku wants to be the one to confess first.
Can Gaku win a duel against Kako who absolutely refuses to compromise and throw the match?
