Is she, though? The only reference I can find to her age is that she's in high school, but I turned 18 when I was still in high school so it's certainly possible she is. Masumi does mention being "an adult" and calls Satoko a kid but that could just be how she views their relationship rather than being literal. The age of consent where they live might be lower than 18 anyway.
Didn't expect Nia to basically go straight to sexual assault. "Erika actually enjoyed it" doesn't make it any better, she still believes she sexually assaulted her friend and seems to have no bad feelings about it just because she thinks she's the only one who knows. Not a fan.
Plot twist : she really was hypnotised and was made to believe she choose to let herself be molested, and the end indicates she is still being influenced.
Not really a plot twist; that's more or less how real hypnotism actually works. But I guess this is magic so the rules can be anything.
I'm a little surprised at how popular this ship is. It's a great ship of course, but I think most yuri fans probably didn't choose Golden Deer since it's the only house without any gay options, and Hilda can't even be recruited on Crimson Flower where you need to go for BylethxEdelgard.
The only answer is that even non-yuri fans see the gay here.
"Why don't they just, you know, talk to each other, seems like that would solve their problems really quickly."
"So the manga can happen, oh and also they're dumb teenagers."
"Right, that makes sense."
Friend: "How's the gay stuff going, you homosexual lesbian?
Some things are really good about this, like the depiction of a sexual harassment and the results of coming forward about it, and Takase's character writing in general over the course of things. I relate to her more strongly than I'd like to admit (the personality in general, not the sexual harassment).
Then some things were really not good, like the random coincidence of the one person you want most finding you on the street in your time of need out of nowhere and "Oops, I fell and accidentally kissed you."
