FANTASTIC.

The beginning put me off a bit. First, Battler’s appearance at the beginning really threw me off. And then, I saw…

Yeah. I saw this earlier on the internet, but I had assumed that it was fake… Turns out Ryukishi07 really did recycle the faces… But anyway, soon enough, the story was so intriguing that I didn’t care anymore. The romance, the tragedy, the madness, the irony, oh, it was completely delicious. Of course, as you can see from the picture, I also ship Lion and Willard! Yes, there was only a couple lines of character development for them, but it’s adorable enough to not matter~ The tension was very well crafted in this chapter, especially in the tea party, and the revelations of the truth are fantastic, like always.

What goes on at the end, however, worries me. Battler’s promise of a complete ending without tragedies seems too good to be true, especially with Trollkastel and her declaration that there is no happy ending.

Aren’t they cute together? For those of you who don’t know, one of these two characters may or may not be female. Ryukishi07 has tried very hard to keep it vague~ That in itself is just amusing, but coupled with the reaction from the internet, it’s quite fantastic.

On a non-related note, Ayumu from Hoshikaka is completely adorable. From what I can tell, he has a larger internet following than any of the girls. Oh, the irony.
