See also: TimelineA Story Arc is a term used to classify groups of Episodes and Chapters. A Story Arc relates and continues from the previous Chapter or Episode. This is useful in presenting information as it pinpoints which part of the storyline it is talking about.
This list takes into account the filler anime for the arc dialing. The dialing on each arc page is based on the manga story arcs.
Note that the author never provided names (except based on the title of a few chapters) for her story arcs nor delimitations. As a consequence, the story arcs are almost purely fandom delimitations and naming to facilitate the understanding and figuration of the story.
