By story 2 and 3 I suppose you meant イルザお菓子のレせピ and ベンノ、カトルカーレの試食会 right? I don’t know if it’s only me but these short stories are harder to understand than the main one. Maybe because the point of view is different.
A nice little cooking chapter in which I tried to follow cooking stuff then gave up. I know what they were saying but did not bother looking at all the cooking techniques or names of ingredients. These cooking chapters are killing me. Mayne found her new personal cook. I love the Frida/Mayne interaction.
I knew Beno wouldn’t like that Mayne traded information. At least she made them pay for it. Beno wanting to fight on a cooking business. When I think about it Beno’s business is getting more and more relying on Mayne. If she ever dies, Beno will be in trouble because he can expand his shop but without news idea he won’t be able to keep up on all front right? Maybe he will be well-established enough. Just thought about it for some reason.
I had one question
Beno(i think) says : なあ、ルッツ。アイツは何で命のかかった状況で騙されてまだ笑顔で付き合えるんだ.。He is asking why アイツ (which is suppose is Mayne) is still smiling when she was about to die.(the situation with the church previously.) Is it correct?
I just love Lutz’s answer after it. “There is no way I’d know I just don’t like Frida that much.” I suppose the question had something to do with Frida then…
Lutz being direct. I do understand Lutz since Frida does everything to get him away from Mayne.
Btw @Naphthalene Even Beno think Lutz might like Mayne. He remembers his young day when he was in love. Lutz Mayne = Best ship.(Yes I will say it every time because ship war is one of the most important things.)
Beno says that he never spoke to Mayne about why he hates the guild leader but he did once right? She he was holding Mayne in his arm he talked about it no?
Why when Beno said he make a magic contract Mayne looked surprised? She knew about it though. Was she surprise he revealed it?
It was more than one question but only one was about grammar so… NO COUNT.
He is wondering why, after being screwed over while she was in a life-or-death situation (when the head of the guild lied about the price of the magic item, hoping to get to “buy” her if she didn’t have enough money), she can still interact with them (the head of the guild and his family) with a smile.
About the other questions, I need to check the context/actual sentences.
It’s hard to have a ship war if you are missing so much information.
