    Me: I’m so jazzed for this volume, I wonder who will end up with the Gesundheit

    Cover: psst

    Me: A meeting with the royals? Surely there’ll be much politicking and shenanigans, I wonder how it will shake out.

    Cover: Hey

    Me: Does Aub Dunkie really stand a chance? Maybe…And surely she won’t give it to Sigi, right? Maggie will vote Trau, but he doesn’t even want to be Zent–

    Cover: LOOK AT ME

    Me: DAMMIT WHY

    I thought that Rozemyne forgot Shuu but as she remembers Benno, I don’t think she forgot her previous life.

    I hope ferdinand will help her remember the Mother from earth.

    The next reunion will be painful. Imagine your daughter / sister was snatched from you by nobles, brainwashed by a goddess and now she doesn’t even recognise you.

    This volume looks like will focus on political consequences of the war. I am looking forward to it.

      I’m quite sure Shuu does not fall in the “more important than reading” category. Urano’s mother though… good question, I’m quite uncertain there.

      Before Tuuli came up in conversation I was half convinced that Mestionora only tempered with Rozemyne’s memories of Ferdinand to mess with him. That she actually can’t remember Tuuli and Effa is a bit of a mild shock to me, in part because of that and in part of how much her family was involved in her making her first book. But I’m sure that this will be sorted out sooner or later. Mestionora surely isn’t so malicious that she’d deal such a cruel blow to essentially her most devout follower in existence.

      I wonder if praying to Mestionora might do the trick. Or it could be so simple, that the moment the last divine mana is out of her system, the memories come back.

      I strongly suspect that was more of a political move, to show their good relations with Dunkelfelger, than actually being impressed with her performance. Not that she didn’t earn it, but this is Ferdinand we’re talking about here. :P

        IMHO Ferdinand is often more impressed than he lets on, he just tends to avoid telling the person.

    I’m surprised Ferdinand hasn’t yet dyed his namestone. Though it would explain why he was so completely unaffected by the divine mana. Previously I thought it was due to also having a Grutrissheit, since Gervasio also appeared only minimally effected by it. But I guess it was Gervasio’s monstrous mana capacity that shielded him, while Ferdinand had the benefit of being kinda-sorta name-sworn to Rozemyne.

    Unless him looking at his namestone had a different meaning…
