I just made one short note on this part (I was reading as fast as I could)
page 493 So happy my guess was right
I don’t even remember what I was talking about. Probably the time travel thing?

I don’t have much to comment on either. Basically, there weren’t many surprises in this section because of all the speculations we had already had in the threads :smile:. In certain sense, it would have been more exciting if you had been wrong :wink:. The only thing that I did find surprising is that the kids still got some time together before they are banished from the castle.

I guessed that, too! But I missed my chance to gloat. And my guess about the order of people was way off-- except I did think Ureshino was in the future. Now I wonder if bleaching your hair was a particularly 90’s thing to do in Japan?

I somehow managed to miss the start of the new chapter (I guess I was naively expecting a 四月? And my brain not very awake) and at some point I thought it was weird that this week was taking me so long… until I realized but was so close to the end I just finished. Woops. Will wait for further threads to comment I guess. :see_no_evil:

Side note: I was looking for this thread in the Reading section as usual and very confused that I couldn’t find it until I saw the new Book Clubs section :exploding_head:
