Things are happeningっっ…!Whats 玉緒 doing with all that 殺意!?

小夜 is super read to trust strangers - I thought so when she met 大郎 and 鈴, and now she just shares all this delicate Information with some other stranger she only knows through aforementioned first strangers she maybe spent a few weeks with. Maybe it’s because of her gift - and the absence of a bad impression means they’re trustworthy…?

I thought the same thing. You could say it’s because of her gift. You could also say it’s just bad writing.


In any case, it is nice that the plot is finally moving a bit. Hopefully the rest of the book moves at a faster pace.

This week had a sentence that sounded really strange to me (and others) in the read-aloud session:

「あちゃちゃ。なんてことを…。そんなことをしたんじゃ、せっかくの守護の術がだいなしだよ。まあ、わらべがやりそうなことだのに、守護の破れ目ができたことに気づかなかったなんて、大朗さんらしからぬ落ち度だねぇ」

Does anyone know why this is だのに and not なのに? It actually has a dictionary entry, saying:

前述の事柄を受けて、それと相反する内容を導く。なのに。それなのに。

So it does seem to be the same thing as なのに. I’ve just never seen it before.
