Since the arc seems to be in its peak, I just wish that they would also conclude Kiki's proposal duel. I mean, the end is really close. Izana's willing to give Wilant to Zen, Shirayuki's close to finishing her research, and now this arc that's going to likely develop Kiki and Mitsuhide. At the very least, if the author wants to extend the story, don't make it a teaser type, but more of a post-epilogue after story where everyone finally gets their shit sorted through.

 

 

Also, Obi arc should exist. It SHOULD. An arc where he understands that Zen treasures him as not just his knight and trusted bodyguard for Shirayuki, but also as a good friend. I always see those two's relationships as kinda rocky but Obi has his loyalty w/ Zen and Zen has his trust with Obi so I like their relationship.

I got hit in the feels! Medic!

 

Seriously, for him to come out and say

means it's the last resort for them. I want them to be heads of their family so they can be an example of how to do it right, and be decent human beings.

 

Also, to think we were lead to believe

Well played Author, well played.

The opening page for chapter 82 is beautiful. <3

Spoiler

I'm very happy with this chapter, this twin-business seems to finally be getting to it's finale! ^^ Might I also mention how I still adore the main five? Because I do.

 

As for the argument held in the comment section here, it seems mislocated?

(More on my thoughts in spoilers, it turned out a little a long :'D)

Spoiler

 

I could go on but this is already quite an essay. xD So I'll just finish with the usual, but all the more important THANK YOU FOR THE SCANLATORS. <3 This is my favorite shôjo-genre manga so far and as it has no official translation as of yet, there's no way I would've been able to read it without you. Truly, thank you. ^^

OMG ZEN esta en peligro, vamos Kiki, Obi regresen a proteger a su alteza!!!

I agree with everything you said.
Zen is the true passive horn in the real world.

No one in good conscience would do what he did (allow the Obi to continue to follow with Shirayuki), this is ridiculous.
The mangaka (I do not care if it's a man or a woman) must have some feitiche for horns, maybe change your mind if you ever suffer a betrayal.

Love triangles are just ridiculous, and manga like to embellish these attitudes, and put them as "good", "cool" and "cute", that's a great shit.
Obi's role in this story is one, to cause division among the readers of the manga, he was placed next to Shirayuki to be a lover, that's the point.
The mangaka could well have put a female character to be Shirayuki's mate and squire, but the mentally ill person prefers a man for it, that is, things are pretty obvious.
These little moments between them, he probably spends more time near her than the Zen itself, the mangaka has created a monster that can not be controlled.

And most likely there will be some kissing or any other romantic moment obvious to the 2 at some point in the series, it's a lot of disappointment.

I'll wait, throw some more volumes before reading (I stopped in chapter 59), to see how the snowball continues.

Sorry for English errors, I'm Brazilian.

You and rozzak are in the wrong genre. You both know you're reading shoujo with slice-of-life elements but yet are complaining about it lol. I read plenty of harem series (shounen) like High School DxD and harem series that are more serious in nature like Madan no Ou to Vanadis (seinen). This, however, is a shoujo with slice-of-life elements series and aimed more towards girls. Therefore they expect good looking guys, fluffy situations between the prince charming and the heroine, honorably princes and male characters, typically monogamy, and more. You can't just expect the female readers to like the prince, an object of affection to the heroine, to be practicing polygamy do you? You don't go in watching Sesame Street and complain that it does not tackle serious world issues like world poverty, hunger, and social inequality do you? Or going into harem series but instead of harem, you end up getting netorare. Sure, if that's your thing... but then it would not be a harem genre anymore now would it?

Anyway about Obi, while I would cringe at what Zen did (if this was the real world), this is an ideal world and setting. Zen believes that since Obi loves Shirayuki, Obi would be one of the better people to protect her. Zen is confident in himself and Shirayuki that they stay true. Considering how Shirayuki is, Zen has high trusts in her just like Izana, Mitsuhide, Kiki, and Obi does. Zen also shows that he's willing to put all of his trusts in those he cares about and have time to know. This very trust is why Mitsuhilde and Kiki follows him so much. He fully respects and trusts them. Obi has already fell for that as well and it is one reason why he followed Zen as well (of course, Shirayuki also has a role in this). Of course, in the real world, people can't really be trusted. But we are in a shoujo with slice-of-life elements series with an ideal world where people are inherently good! Hell, in this series, Shirayuki basically rejects Tanburn's prince and did not get herself killed! A commoner resisting a royal family member! Instead, here in this shoujo with slice-of-life elements series, in an ideal world, Shirayuki changed the prince to be a better person!

Plus, Zen is NOT going to be a king. Izana is. And Izana definitely has shown that he does not trust people as easily. Fitting for the crowned prince who is a future king. Talking about the crowned prince, how many time in history does the crown prince gets along with his siblings? Historically, they try to kill each other to be king. Once again, this is a shoujo with slice-of-life elements series.

Basically, this is a shoujo series with slice-of-life elements. Expect shoujo. Expect slice-of-life.

Zen allowing Obi to be with Shirayuki unsupervised is literal retard behavior. It's like he wants to be a cuckold. It's like giving you best friend and girlfriend an all expenses paid 1 year vacation to Italy and expecting them NOT to fuck.

Obviously it won't happen in this manga, but if Zen's judgment is any indication of his intelligence, he's clearly unfit to run a country (let alone a relationship). Back in those times you'd get your thumbs ripped off for even looking at the prince's woman. Zen is seriously pretty pathetic. Most royalty have a peasant mistress or two. But Zen is monogamous and Shirayuki (his "peasant mistress") has her own manstress.

I know it's a shoujo, so the feMC needs her reverse harem. But let's just acknowledge that the reverse would never happen. No way Zen would be spending inordinate amounts of time with a girl openly infatuated with him and Shirayuki just "trusts" them. Zen is totally okay with Shirayuki having a backup boyfriend for if he gets a tragedy ending.

You have to brakes it like [ spoiler] then [/spoiler ] but no spaces

Thank you.

Also, PLOT TWIST for the 2 Bergatt brothers.

Well, well.  Things begin to come clear.

About time we got some clarity in this mess. ^^;

 

Also, anyone else loving the author's use of "head jewellery", that is, earrings, tiara-style things and hair ornaments instead of some heavy crowns or pendants, to show status? Because that is just lovely to me. <3

Well, well.  Things begin to come clear.

This is all I could think of.

Zen be like, "our ninja's better"

I'm pretty confused by this current plot line so I look forward to when we see more info on what dynamics are actually in play here. And concretely about who is doing what,and why.


Back in those times you'd get your thumbs ripped off for even looking at the prince's woman. Zen is seriously pretty pathetic. Most royalty have a peasant mistress or two. But Zen is monogamous and Shirayuki (his "peasant mistress") has her own manstress.
 

 

Ok, you do realize this is a fantasy setting, not a historical one? There is no "Back in those times.." because this is not set in our world. The castle staff treated her pretty rudely and flat out said since she was  a mistress she should just wait quietly in some bedroom for her man. Obviously that's not the relationship either wants.

 

 

Fuck. Even the other characters think that Shirayuki and Obi are an item. That already demonstrates a level of intimacy 1 step too close.

 

Um, those that actually know them both know they're not. Anyone else is just looking for gossip. People who think any relationship that isn't for gain is just for fucks. Or that men and women can't have a relationship and not have sexual tension. Oh, wait, that probably isn't the characters in this manga, I'm transferring....

 

If you think this story is stupid please just go away and not posting things that ruin the enjoyment of the characters' interactions and love. Many of us love this story and don't want to see it slandered like that.

Well you should expect them NOT to fuck because you should trust in your best friend and girlfriend not to destroy their relationships with you. The beauty of this manga is the loyalty and trust between the characters, and how much they value their relationships

 

Obi wouldn't tell Zen about his feelings for his girl if that was true. He'd bottle them up and not even admit them to himself. Blind loyalty and trust is what leads to cuckolding. So it's an awful idea.

Well you should expect them NOT to fuck because you should trust in your best friend and girlfriend not to destroy their relationships with you. The beauty of this manga is the loyalty and trust between the characters, and how much they value their relationships. Zen and Shirayuki have doubts sometimes, but they always trust in each other in the strength of their bond (ex: when zen had that "date" with kiki). Moreover, Obi has always been honest and forward towards Zen and has repeatedly stated that even though he likes Shirayuki, his loyalty towards Zen would never let him harm Zen and Shirayuki's relationship. Ultimately, Obi wants to see Zen and Shirayuki together. And because Zen is aware of this, he allows Obi to guard over Shirayuki (and also, he knows that Obi is the best protector of Shirayuki because of his feelings).

 

As for Zen's leadership, he doesn't need to be "fit to run the country" because he's only second prince. His role, and his own personal goal, is to be the best complement to his brother, the King. We have seen several times the analytical methods of Izana to rule the kingdom well. Zen's strength lies in his ability to judge others and his charisma that compels loyalty from his subjects, which in my opinion, is also a great way to run the country. He also doesn't slack off in terms of legal stuff and paperwork, and constantly strives to find the real state of his country. 

 

Also, it takes different skills to manage a relationship well vs managing a country well. I doubt you would use the same method to have a job vs having a gf/bf.

Feels so weird to reread the old chapters as they get here... :P Since right now, the locations and certain actions cross. xD I'm reading it and this kind of thought line keeps repeating: "Oh yeah, this already happened > Oh, but what about that noble scirmish? > Wait, Obi was sent there... wasn't he? When is this? What? [repeat]" Gawd I'm stupid... : P


I have had to reread the series so many times because of everything I've forgotten.

It's Zen as a kid!! Omg, so cute ><
