Oh. Yuuto really is dead.
Well, your writing has gotten better. It's conveyed the emotion more. And the fact that it's told from Claire's point of view... I won't even natter on about the sudden, inconsistent change of POV. As I said, I'd review based on story alone.
Short chapter, eh? Never thought that I see one of those in BladeArc! Although, I suppose that this is more of an intermission. Ah, poor Ennis. Poor Davren. I can't even feel mad towards Leonard, since he let Davren grieve over Yuuto's loss first, which is rather... nice of him.
And that bold text... what could that mean? Is the [Black Reaper] going to come? Or maybe... [Love]?
Will read more... ;D

Aww, what? Serious? Yuuto dies again? Really? Really? Just... *walks out of the room*
First of all, yey for battle! Ah, glad to see that you explained the whole mental link thing. I can see the climax on the horizon! Or maybe this is already the climax? *ponders*
Wow, things went hectic. I didn't expect any less from this chapter titled 'The Battle of Davren'. Yuuto kicking soldiers' butts, and Vivio appearing and summoning a giant Goliath. Just... *applauds*
Fiore sure is powerful from your descriptions. Even though Davren is advancing, Fiore keeps raining them with their troops! Is Leonard pooping soldiers out in a magic factory or something? *is shot*
But hallo! When things seem to be failing, even for a bit, the other nations come! Mu, Camelot, and Blest, was it? Go Tetsu no Otome and Mu's ogres! Fight with your scary Blood Haze! And Kamui joins in the action, too x3
And Camelot comes, along with Blest, was it? A surge of hope for the battle! Davren have to win this!
Yuuto challenges Leonard to a duel to the death. A brave but foolish challenge, and one that I probably wouldn't have made. Leonard has a big sword and maybe a bigger frame. And... and... he ended Yuuto! Even with the latter's belief and determination and promises, he...
Stay alive, you. STAY ALIVE. Ennis... confessed to you.
Because you weren't enough of a man to do it sooner. *is shot*
Will read more suspense... ;D

*checks the rating* Well, T is suitable, *nods* Just checking because of the content. *is shot*
Ah, so the Reaper Guild has gotten some attention, eh? Ennis and Claire both have respective positions, and Yuuto has earned a nickname befitting his abilities and his outlook. It's funny how talented he is in battle, when he's quite simple most of the time xD
Things seem to be looking up. Davren is holding up, and Fiore hasn't won yet. But the other nations haven't responded. Civil wars, maybe?
And of course, the proposal... well, let me say that Finny's proposal was quite ingenious. Cleverly crafted and suavely explained, and yet... yet... Yuuto declined.
*throws confetti* That's Yuuto for you! No deal can shake him! Maybe except for one concerning Ennis, but that's for another time!
Finny... is probably the seductive female I had confused with Vivio. Awkwardness again... *hides behind pillow* I'm just glad that Kamui came along. Yey!
A Davren camp was taken over? Well, go Ennis and Yuuto! Fight Fiore! x3
Members: Yuuto, Ennis, Miya, Kamui, Claire, and Lynn.
Will read more! ;D

Ah, I was wrong on all my speculations. Vivio isn't old, isn't male, and isn't seductive at all. Well. Another failed prediction from me *sweat drop*
But some carnivorous vines, eh? No one could beat it... I sort of felt unsure of this. Like Yuuto said, I was sure that he would at least harm it with that Black Flame he unlocked from that recondition stuff. But he trusts Miya, so I should as well. *wut?*
And Vivio arrives! Powerful, indeed. She seems to strike a studios, composed air about her, and unlike what I mentioned about every female in BladeArc hosting some amiability towards Yuuto, she's... somewhat of an exception. She's a much different character, which is quite relieving, to be honest x3
There's one thing that's bugging me, and that's how she accepted the offer too quickly. I was hoping that the quest would continue for at least another chapter, like if Yuuto and MIya had to retrieve some sort of rare herb for Vivio before the latter could go with them. It felt a little... rushed to me. Maybe it's because I wanted more Yuuto and Miya time, just like with Yuuto and Kamui's quest.
But besides that, nothing else to nitpick on. Vivio accepts, and she shows her awesome powers. Ennis and Yuuto have a moment on the balcony. Another sweet ending.
Will read more! ;D
| Razorine chapter 29 . 11/28/2013
First of all, I like how this chapter and all of the other chapters before this could actually be episodes of a BladeArc anime (o-oh, wow, I'm already suggesting an anime, ehe).
An Archmagus? Somehow, SkyRim comes to mind when I hear that xP But well, Vivio seems to be a wild card for any war. I'm intrigued to see her personality, and how she'll react to Yuuto's presence as a Dark Knight (since that class usually interest people so much, especially the guy who attacked Yuuto at the meeting some chapters before). Is she old? Is she a he? Is she a seductive lady? *cocks head like a bird*
And Miya finally has her time with Yuuto! All these quest things are perfect for character development (again. orz). I was quite interested with Miya's backstory since she just seems to be hiding a lot beneath her cheery veneer. She's... too happy. But I guess that just makes her antics with Yuuto much more funny x3
Golems. Got to love those. Maybe they were attacking Miya because they have the Domination Curse on them?
Another accidental pervy moment? This is the problem (but also the highlight!) of harems in anime.
Miya's backstory is pretty sad. And the fact that she has a Domination Mark... I hope Yuuto will find a way to get rid of it. And hallo! Miya confesses! She confesses! Ah, awkwardness like this makes me hide behind my pillow. But Miya's brave, and strong. Plus, her jokey personality shines through! (Mistress, lol xD).
[Love], huh? Fufufufu...
Will read more! ;D
| Razorine chapter 28 . 11/28/2013
Aww, a warm, sweet ending. *WHEN WILL THEY KISS *is shot**
A lot of things have happened! Promises, goals, and recruitment. It's nice to see that Ennis is getting along with Claire, and that they're working together. I suppose Ennis' tsundereness used to render Claire afraid, but now the latter just takes it as a joke! It's serious character relationship-development!
And Lynn will join? I had a sneaky feeling. Her being an Alchemist and a Blacksmith will surely help the rest of the group. And reconditioning your sword gives you new abilities? Very fantasy RPG, but also very BladeArc x3
Ah, the backstories are here. I've been waiting for a detailed paragraph of Yuuto's. So he has a sibling? That's nice to hear, though I empathize with him on the 'unloved' aspect. And Ennis' backstory also moved me quite a bit, since she's a victim of war and all. It takes a strong heart to talk about the wrath of the Iscariots when Claire is her friend. *nods*
Yuuto's new abilities. So awesome! *throws confetti*
Will read more love and action! ;D
| Razorine chapter 27 . 11/28/2013
I knew Yuuto wouldn't die! I suppose my first assumption that [The Reaper] would play a part in his revival was somewhat right x3
[The Reaper] has a soft spot for Yuuto? Well, I suppose the latter has been entertainment to the former for a while, and it's become somewhat of a trope that all females of BladeArc have some sort of amiability with Yuuto, regardless of their personas ;3
Fate... it's a weird thing. And yet, it's interesting that Yuuto is a protagonist who defines his own destiny. I sincerely hope that he won't become that evil [Black Reaper] *nods*
New charrie, eh? Lynn is a Spriggin Alchemist. Interesting, indeed. I had speculated whether any non-combat members would join the Reaper Guild, but after you said that no more would join I just forgot about it altogether. So would Lynn just be in this chapter or will she actually join? Because she would be a good addition, with the way that she just melts in Yuuto's grasp *is shot multiple times*
And Mega Healing Potion. Nice name xD
Ennis and Yuuto are back! And hallo! Yuuto experiences some sort of telepathy! Maybe he and Ennis have that strong a bond...
And that last part. ;3
Will read more! ;D
| Razorine chapter 26 . 11/28/2013
Yuuto can't die. There's no way you'd leave the story like this... could you? *gapes at the last few sentences*
Some Yuuto and Liara time. Glad to see that the princess isn't just for looks *ehe* And Davren has allies now, eh? But wait! Fiore has declared war already!
You wanted thoughts, well, here they are! I think that the character development is a-okay, and pretty much gone to the climax. Yuuto's finally confessed his feelings out loud, even if it wasn't directly at Ennis' conscious face. From the brawl, I can tell that he's stronger, and much, much more determined. Because of that, I realized that he's not just fighting for his chance to defeat Nidhogg, or for Davren, but to protect his guild. Mostly Ennis.
He still has to confess for real, right?
Which is why I don't want him to die. [Reaper], help Yuuto! Or maybe Claire! Yes! That's way more probable! x3
| DemmiiLee-Ann chapter 1 . 11/28/2013
This is awesome. I will defintly like this.
| Razorine chapter 25 . 11/19/2013
Ah, amidst the sinister of the arena, you still manage to make me smile. N-Not in a perverted way! I was merely amused at the awkwardness of the situation... *sadistic! is shot*
As always, I applaud you for your ability to keep the story going. Your fast-paced chapters weren't my cup of tea at first, but when I see the progression of BladeArc from this chapter, I can't help but smile ;D
Yuuto is a fantastic guy as always, with an unintentionally-pervy attitude. It was funny and entertaining how those ogres just confessed right in front of EACH OTHER. I suppose they're like fangirls? xD
Ah, another finish to a quest! I hope to see more development on the plot, though, especially a quest regarding the Nidhogg. I'm just concerned that you may have lingered on the progression part for too long.
But that's just me! xP
Will read more soon! ;D
| Razorine chapter 24 . 11/19/2013
Ooh, interesting name! Iron Maidens- sounds like something from an anime!
Well, things might take a turn for the worse. Honestly, I'm rather excited by the concept of gladiatorial arenas. Something about them rouses an interest within me... orz
Still, it's nice that you've implemented some Japanese through one of the cultures in BladeArc, that being the ogres. The diversity of these races is commendable, and adds to that spicy fantasy feel!
I truly hope that Kamui and Yuuto bond in a sort of sister-brother way. I picture their relationship like that x3
I'm wondering if you'll do separate quests where Yuuto goes with each of the guild members. It provides a sort of character development feel, I think. *me with the development again! ;S*
Will read the next chapter, then that will be all today. Hope I can finish tomorrow! ;D
| Razorine chapter 23 . 11/19/2013
My god, things are getting more awesomer by the minute. Yuuto has his promises! He can't break them! ;S
But well, what a surprise! Leonard was the one who ordered Liara's assassination! Ah, that king resembles the very concept of politics itself. Glory seeker does fit him, indeed.
And Ludd was the spy! Unexpected! Keep loading up the twists and surprises, they're messing up my usually detective-like mind!
Ah, Yuuto. I hope- I sincerely hope- that you won't fall to the Dark Side *is quoting Star Wars*
Will read more! ;D
| Razorine chapter 22 . 11/19/2013
I.. I am speechless.
First of all, nice job on quickly making the girls forgive Yuuto. It was quite nice to see them make up x3
And secondly, THE TRIAL! I FORGOT! Wow, things are really going to be different. So Yuuto has fallen to the darkness in the future? Well, in one of the futures? That's... scary. Only because I can't imagine a sarcastic and kindhearted guy like him to become a [Reaper] who bleeds on his left eye ;S
But yes, this is quite the surprise. So Yuuto's trial is to define his own destiny, and not let destiny define him. Hum! Interesting! I'm personally going for the former x3
And kudos for that comparison the the Festival of Love guy!
Will read more! ;D
| Razorine chapter 21 . 11/19/2013
First of all, it was a bit inconsistent at the start. But the rest was fine x3
Ah, love the POV changes and how each Yuuto felt what the previous was feeling through the mental link. Quite funny and entertaining!
Good to see that their relationships grow. Nice to see that Yuuto is enjoying himself with each of the girls (weird sentence...) though the part with Miya's tickling was quite... well, she had good intentions I guess. *sweat drop*
Nice to see that Claire is more reserved than the others. Good call on discussing the detective stuff, which by the way is already intriguing me...
And the ending... *applauds*
Will read more! ;D
| Razorine chapter 20 . 11/19/2013
Oh god. This is... quite the surprise.
Don't get me wrong, this is really cool. Like a refreshment after the action from the last chapter! Besides, I have to admit that while Yuuto is an idiot in this, I have to applaud his resilience x3
Ah Qwinn, what a saviour! Although, the fact that she wants a Yuuto Clone for herself is quite unnerving... *shudders*
I'm excited to see how this goes. I'm sure that Yuuto will stuff this up immensely! xD
Will read more! ;D (WUT? Only 15 more chapters until I'm up to date?!)
