I like that マイン learned that the price “drop” she made on the deal with Frida / ギルド長 could have serious consequences for sellers of luxury items on the market. She could’ve messed up the system by having prices all over the place :joy: Now it makes more sense why Benon was so angry, other than missing out on the extra money.

Random thoughts: I wonder how she is perceived by Benon. It’s not until he tells her that the stuff she has made is actually expensive luxury items so she should treat them accordingly regarding their value. Her knowledge doesn’t match up with life in this world so she takes those items for granted because she’s so used to them. Benon probably be like "what’s up with this kid? Already secretly accustomed to luxury? :eyes: nani o: "

Like she said to ルッツ they have to get used to the business perspective of things soon.

Well, he was already wondering about her before when they had a lunch meeting and was surprised she had table manners. Like, where the frick did she learn that.

I liked it when she brought money home and her family was surprised. I wonder how Lutz’s family reacted. Since they hate merchants would they say it’s dirty money and reject it or just the money but still hate them. I like the interaction between Lutz and Mayne. I found it funny when Mayne said she made her bag then Beno remembered what that has caused.

Funny details this is probably the book I can read the most page without thinking about it. Maybe it’s the length of the chapter that is good for me of the level of language but I can easily get absorbed by it without having to look at how many pages left to read. If the chapters are too short and since I like finishing on a chapter it’s always making me look at how many I have read and how much more I want to read.

They hate merchants? o: I thought it was just that his parents were not supportive of the idea of him becoming one :eyes: :sweat_drops: Especially the part with long distance travelling.

They just think it’s a dishonest way to live and are disappointed that Lutz doesn’t want to follow in his father’s footsteps.
