with blood oozing from an apparently self-inflicted headshot wound.
an ENEMY princess who was supposedly a WAR GENIUS with many illustrious experiences in warfare, which were EASILY captured by our MC with a flimsy, foolish tactic, and "naive" enough to trust a bizzare information from an enemy, especially by taking into account that her kingdom supposedly had NEVER encountered any demon threat
have now long gone with the old era
especially in flashback)
thoughts per ch 47 :
highly doubt that this kind of things will happen again as the story progress (and the ML an MC might or might not become an op couple), but for now I really love how the author potrays her limited choices. As a little girl of ancient times who "plays" in the snake pit (aka palace), she can't miraculously save everyone. Every choices are risky, with a heavy price rests on each one. Ultimately, her choice might set off unexpected chains of event with unwanted consequences.
I ship the bl path, though seems like the author wouldn't go down with it XD
I believe that Enjou likes her and have some sort of agreement with Yukino so that Reika agrees to go on 'dates' with him (+yukino though, but still...) ! And I'm half convinced that Enjou is actually Takateru's sort-of informant! (disclaimer : these are just my theory)
