I also like that 即ち in kanji was used only to be followed up by すなわち in hiragana on the next page??


Finally finished this chapter. I won’t lie, the whole section from Holo’s capture to their reunion was rough. Thankfully I have found my bearing again since then. Never would have though going in I’d have the easiest time with the conversations including her speaking style.


I finally finished chapter 5 last night. I had a hard time too when Holo was captured and it was a lot of Lawrence hypothesizing with Milone Company’s マールハイト. I think I really missed Holo and wanted some action and banter.
