This week's content

As expected no one saw no one. Sad for Masamune though. He prob thinks everyone ditched him.
Seems like the different timeline theory is making more sense. And why none of them still hasn’t gotten each other contact yet? Like just get their contact and try to meet up somewhere. Or just call each other when they are not at the castle.
My thought was to write a journal about what happened in the castle in case their memories got erased. Maybe the journal won’t be erased.
Ì’m still resisting reading ahead. Only 2 months left and no one tried to stay after 5. The castle mechanics seems so underused. Everything will unfold at the end I guess.

Yes, that’s a good point. It’s not uncommon for kids to keep a journal, so how would that work, indeed.

I guess they would just remember day dreaming about the castle instead. It would definitely help, though.

Or else they’d go mad wondering how all this stuff they don’t remember writing got into their journal. :joy:

Meh, those kids seem very good at ignoring stuff. They’d just not think about it :joy:
