This chapter confuses me quite a bit, but I wonder if I'm the only who found it a bit inconsistent with past chapters in the stories. This is the biggest problem I'm having:
Soooo... without spoiling what comes ahead. I'll just say, "WTF, Vincent?" Anyhow, I'm very scared about the possibility this chapter opens, and hope it won't go down the typical shoujo route because it would negate too much of the previous story, the fundamental mechanic of the "Magnolia", and be untrue to the characters as laid out so far -- mainly it makes the King looks very uncool. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping the story will proceed logically. I REALLY DO NOT LIKE story inconsistencies.
