The Battle Continues!! is the 39th chapter of the UQ Holder! manga written and illustrated by Ken Akamatsu. In this chapter, Touta battles Fate Averruncus while the rest of the numbers are found by their opponents.


Thinking they've defeated Fate, Kirie takes the Instant Mana Poison Pill in order to kill herself and go back with time, however, much to everyone's surprise, Kirie is instead turned into stone and Fate commends the group for their efforts. Asking if this was their last trick, Fate tells Touta to come with him, but Ikkuu finally manages to fire the satellite cannon and faces Tsukuyomi Iwai, a Shinmei-ryū swordswoman.

Meanwhile, Touta heads back to Fate - in spite of Karin's protests - who smiles, stating that it will take him another five minutes to regenerate his shields. That is when Karin is attacked by Shaba Gyurei, a sword-wielding priest and, at the same time, Kuroumaru faces Asura Tu, a swordsman with multiple arms.

Touta then attemps Instant Movement Technique in order to reach Fate, however, the Mage effortlessly defends himself and then proceeds launching a rain of blades, claming that this is the spell that Touta's grandfather dodged without any difficulty. Touta manages to defend himself against the flying swords, albeit somewhat damaged, which Fate comments on, claiming that Touta's grandfather managed to avoid the spell uninjured. Touta smirks, noting that Fate seems to like his grandfather way too much and states that this fight isn't over yet.
