I had enough gaps in my busy schedule to edit chapters this week. (And this chapter is exciting enough to give me motivation to work on it.)
The horrible truth is that it's translated up to ch.47 I just need to edit all those translations.
Times are hard indeed...
Please take care of yourself and thanks for the chapters as always.
The one who decides who gets the sword is the god, Sylph. So far the sword had always been inherited by people from the royal family, but this time the god picked a nun instead of the queen. I hope we get a proper answer as to why. Did Natalia lack some qualification? I want to know.
I don't think that's it. The exact phrasing Sara used in chapter 1 was "The real sword is here rooted in me" and not something like "I had been granted the sword" or similar. If I had to guess it's a ploy by Slyph to give Natalia someone she can rely on and keep by her side.
This is only a guess of course, but if it's correct it's definitely working.
Wasn't there a moment earlier where they mentioned that Yurika had crushed on Himawari, but Himawari rejected her? She seems to be VERY into her here. I dunno maybe I'm reading it wrong? Maybe the implication is Himawari rejected her for other reasons, or maybe the implication is that she's just pissed because someone else is getting that crush-energy now and she liked being the center of attention but didn't want to actually date?? Curious how that'll turn out.
On a reread it doesn't sound like she rejected her at all, now while it could be translation but the word choice sounds like Himawari never answered her feelings in the first place. Maybe she was still trying to figure out her own feelings for Yurika and I do think she cares a lot about her well-being but in the end all she did was hurt the both of them.
Don't know if this has been suggested already but:
I don't suppose we can get letter index navigation in addition to page numbers on all the directory pages? While its not exactly the biggest problem in the world some of those directory categories are quite large and difficult to navigate if you can't use the search bar to find exactly what you're looking for.
I think Shiori might not actually want to eat Hinako, and is actually in love with her. It's all just a ruse to get close to her and try and help her.
"I want to kill you" usually is a poor ruse for getting close to people...
To be fair, when the person in question is full on "I have a suicidal death wish" it might not be the worst idea to be "I'm going to be the one that kills you, but not yet, only when I've decided you're worth killing." Gives them a reason to let you stick around.
