He’s one of my favorites too! He’s really inspirational. Though when he came back I wasn’t crying (well a little bit maybe...) but screaming!!!!

Honestly I just really love that family of Leona, Fuego and Leo. Laughably better than the Silvas.
(Hell even moreso if you add Mimosa and Kirsch)
Hell yeah they are awesome. Can't wait to see more of them

Yo Silfer, you were right in hyping me on Noelle. Damn, that Valkyrie form!

And it might be kinda cliche having the older siblings being dicks to you and then starting to respect you, but that was really cool and felt earned. Really liked the explanation of her having the potential of a royal and the training of a pleb to achieve greatness. The overall fight was quite smart (I particularly loved how she filled the whole place with water to drown the enemy).

Also, I never felt much regarding Fuegoleon. Sure, he had a cool design and all, but it was too short of a time for me to actually care. Now, that was another great double spread, though. Really excited about the character now. And the stuff with Salamander (and the other spirits) is really cool, dying to see more of them.

This arc is good, son.

PS: I'm sad that I'm getting close to a weekly release, so I'm thinking of rereading this. Doesn't seem like the anime is worth it, sadly?

Any suggestions for a cover image (1000 x 600)?
Otherwise will default and use a YunoAsta one ^_^
How about doing something with this? https://i.imgur.com/EnB9rsc.jpg
From the popularity poll. It's only thing I could think of with characters lined up like that in color.

Valkyrie form is so hype. Made especially cool by having shown her mother like that before.
And it made me appreciate the way people gain spells in this series more because when I started it, the idea that the grimoire would just get new stuff whenever was concerning to me because it felt like it could lead to characters magically getting unearned trump cards. But turns out the grimoire doesn't just give them spells to save them but rather when they're in a particular situation and have accomplished specific objectives beforehand. Like in this case the manga calls attention to the fact that Noelle trained a lot, which is rare for royals (and when they do, they become monsters like Mereoleona), had developed mana skin in an earlier arc and the enemy's compass thing made it so Noelle could only control magic that was very close to her body. And so all that combines into a water armor/spear spell and I can just buy into it more easily.

You mean BACK-TO-BACK double spreads!! (Real talk, I'm a sucker for when this manga does that lol)
But yeah his comeback with Salamander makes me very excited to see more of him. He will not lose a second time!!

Yeah I've been loving this arc, glad you're enjoying it too. And no, I wouldn't recommend the anime if you want to go through this stuff again unless you're really just curious about it. Even since the anime's been airing, I just re-read the manga. I do recommend checking out Episode 35 (Yami vs Licht) and Episode 49 (End of the Vetto fight).
But the anime's been doing the Witch Forest arc and I've been liking that more than usual so maybe in the future I'll feel better about recommending the anime.

Yeah, at first I was like "I've seen this before" lol. That was a hint that I need a reread, as it took me a few seconds to remember her mother.

Honestly, the whole fighting system in the manga has so many concepts I love: everybody focusing on magic (which makes them disregard their physicality barring a few characters), the nobles having the bigger share of talent (with cool things like the concept of them not really pushing themselves), the Grimoires themselves, mana skin, anti-magic... It helps that fights are easy to follow, really well drawn and not long at all.

Loved that fight.

Yeah, I was a bit sleepy when reading, so I wasn't paying that much attention and then bam, that spread. One has to wonder (and I assume you guys have talked about this before) that the Water Spirit is going to have some link to Noelle in some way: be it her acquiring it, fighting an enemy that has it or whatever.

Shame about the anime! Will check those episodes out, though. And I will probably do like with One Piece and watch particular moments (or even full chapters) I liked in the manga.

Yeah it's been brought up here since Fuego showed up again. I lean towards her fighting whoever has the spirit (both in terms of what I want and what I expect) because I think that would make for a cool fight where it's the same element but she's at a disadvantage on paper. And also the Clover kingdom already has half of the spirits now, can't stack it too much lol.

Nice chapter today. Just as last week I liked how Sally deduced she could just ask for an exit, I like how Elf-Dorothy can just seal them lol. The simplicity of this OP as hell dream world is pretty cool. Luck coming up with the plan surprised me but then I remembered he was the one to come up with the plan way back in the first dungeon arc when they fought that Diamond smoke guy Lotus so him doing the same here again is nice. I lost it when I saw the Dorothy silhouette. The way the plan combined the efforts and magic of every one present is excellent and Luck's understanding of being possessed being the key is just great. And of course it just works because that dream world is beautifully simple and now we have a coherent way for them to win. This is why I love these fights lol.

Real Dorothy...I did not expect her to be like this at all lol. I expected some lazy, grumpy person who'd complain about wanting to sleep but she's really energetic (I wonder if the line about finally meeting someone like her means she's just really bored otherwise and that's why she's always sleeping. Probably be digging too much into it). But with how serious and mad everyone is in this arc, I'll take this energy anytime I can.

Yo Tabata letting loose with those spreads again. Back-to-back-to-back lmao. The one with the two Dorothys clashing is especially fun and is a good way to show how ridiculously OP they are (flame tigers are my favorite of the various summons). And then that Lightning/Flame Style: Combo Rasengan is just the cherry on top.
Man writing about this chapter...turns out I love it more than I initially realized lol. One of my favorite battles I think. Cool magic, nice environment, fun displays of personality, great teamwork.
