Ignorance is a soft pillow indeed. It's just weird for people knowing the old Reimu to watch her be clueless, is all.
I wanted to note something positive as a counterbalance; but yes, it is as you say. Comparing Reimu from now to then, coupled with her persistent ignorance of certain issues, places her in an notoriously akward position. Conversely however… this is all completely normal for her character to be that way; to be “weird”. Without going into details, the same complaints that were used just recently against her, can be also applied to many points in CoLA and the Bougetsushou series. Bearing that in mind, I’m not so much reminded of how different she has become appart from the past rather… how much she is still ultimately herself. I expect she will only continue be just as she were in the foreseeable future and will be fine regardless.
Speaking of this chapter. I really like that Marisa’s personal flaws of being an avid theif/collector is limelighted. Makes one wonder if any of those buried books will ever opened by her again.
