Reading progress update: I've read 172 out of 200 pages.

Dawn of the Arcana, Vol. 02 - Rei Tōma

STOP PLOTTING TO KILL MY ANGEL. INSTEAD, SIT DOWN AND TRY TO KEEP THE PEACE BETWEEN YOUR KINGDOMS ALIVE FOR MORE THAN THREE DAYS, WILL YOU?!

 

You don't marry into another royal family in the name of peace and then immediately start plotting to tear everything apart - especially when your homeland's king knows nothing about it and your kingdom has been losing the war for a long time. You'll essentially be condemning all of your people to death.

 

I just keep reading this and thinking of Hawksong, and how beautifully laid out it was. And somehow that thought makes this manga even more backward and senseless.
