The second short story was unrelated to Nora.  It was called “The Severer,” and was hilariously terrible.  The dialogue was so bad that I suspect the person doing the adaptation had a lot of fun punching it up with lame-but-still-awesome English phrases.

The conclusion to Nora absolutely crushed me.  I like this series quite a bit, and I was hoping that with an extra-long ending we’d get to see a lot of wrapup with Kazuma and Nora, but there’s one last conflict, and the story ends abruptly on what seems like a cliffhanger.  Literally, the final chapter just cuts off in the middle of an action scene, with no resolution.  It’s totally unfair.  There’s a sequel series called SUREBREC: Nora the 2nd, but it hasn’t been licensed in English yet.  Tragic.  I hope this was popular enough to warrant releasing the sequel.

As I’ve said before, I have a ridiculous fondness for this series, which has a lot to do with Kazuma and Nora being great characters that work together quite humorously.  The plot was only average, but that was easy for me to overlook since I tend to like demon-oriented series.  Nora and Kazuma more than made up for any weaknesses in the plot, though.  There were some really cool plot twists along the way, to be fair, and I was more-or-less highly entertained until I got to the end.  This was probably one of my favorite shounen series from last year, and while it seems like a mediocre offering, it’s definitely worth reading from the beginning.

Nora is a rebellious demon, and despite being a member of the Under World's official police force (Dark Liege's army) he has a tendency not to listen to orders. So one day, when he goes too far (AKA: calls her "ugly" one too many times) Dark Liege decides to send Nora to the human world to be taught to be obedient.

Enter Kazuma; a cool-as-ice straight-A student. As president of his school's student council, he discusses with his friends the problems involving the people collapsing and sometimes even dying. Ominously, the fact that one person even claimed that a monster was the culprit comes up. He hears a cell phone ringing from inside the hallway and decides to answer it. Dark Liege comes on with an over-enthusiastic "HI!" After Kazuma refuses to hear her measurements she explains that Kazuma was chosen to be given a great power. Suddenly, a strange pentagram -like object appears on his hand, and Nora appears!
