So this book is slightly better than My Favorite Song ~The Silver Siren~, the other Cross Infinite Worlds title. By that I mean that Luca isn’t a raging misogynist. That being said it’s still a typical shoujo story where the main character tries to do something, often helping her friends, and gets admonished by the males in the story that she should just be a passive doll for saving where she’ll then feel that it’s all her fault that everyone is in trouble because of her.

Whelp, besides the force “marriage”/bonding of Yuki and Luca where she has no idea what it means to be bonded or even what’s going on, we have many nice scenes where she want to do something to save people and after she save a small boy towards the end ...

I really wanted to like this book more being a shoujo titles, however as usual it’s the shitty shoujo titles with the highly misogynistic men that get localized.

First of all they don’t use the honorifics and in this story it’s highly relied upon. People of the same age aren’t going to call each other “Miss” and ‘-san’ does not equal ‘miss/ms.’ It’s not the same thing no matter how many translators want to scream it is. So of course we get “Lady Leise” instead of Liese-sama and “master Laut” who is only 10.

As for the story itself, this book is really more about Rag and his shitty man quest to be the most asshole character ever...
