WMMP: OKAY, just a minute here…

I love that Lilian York, on at least three separate occasions, used Felix as a wall/shield. And the look on her face–like, “Augh. I want to go home. I’m tired.” Is just so hilarious to me. Like, she’s not hanging out with other women, nor men–she literally came to these parties for some reason (like an obligation, maybe?) and just decided to hang out with Felix whenever … Continue reading WMMP: OKAY, just a minute here…

The Obelian Royal Family: The Heir

theanimeview: I was thinking about Chapter 7 of “Suddenly I Became a Princess One Day,” particularly this scene:   and it got me thinking about The Obelian Royal Family and heirs to the throne. By all indication (that I hear) of the novel, and in our telling thus far, Athanasia seems to have a secure spot as future Emperor (rather, Empress) of the empire. I’m not going to … Continue reading The Obelian Royal Family: The Heir

Chapter 77: Who Made Me a Princess – WHAT?! Let’s Discuss the World Tree and Lucas

Alright. There are so many things going on right now with Athanasia that I don’t even know where to begin–particularly with her magic.  Lucas (who is, it appears, coming to terms with his growing crush on Athanasia or at least interest beyond the surface level) has brought to our attention that something becomes shattered about Athanasia’s mana when she starts thinking about her past life and … Continue reading Chapter 77: Who Made Me a Princess – WHAT?!

The Obelian Royal Family: Claude and Athanasia, Revisited

If you’re reading this, you might have already read some of my many other posts on Who Made Me A Princess, particularly the post I made on Claude and Athanasia’s father-daughter dynamic. In this analysis, I want to discuss how their relationship is shifting in the opening chapters of Season 2.  Last time, I said that I thought Claude’s personality was appearing in Athanasia, “This aside, … Continue reading The Obelian Royal Family: Claude and Athanasia, Revisited

Chapter 47

Okay, holy smokes. I just read chapter 47 and how shocking!  Claude is suddenly acting all cold like he was in the book, and I wonder if it’s because he lost a good amount of magic or because of some curse that has been hinted to earlier. It might be a while before we find out completely, but–in the meantime–let’s look at the imagery of … Continue reading Chapter 47

Revisited: Gold, Art, and Storytelling

I talked about this before, but I think it is worth repeating as the gold and yellow have remained a consistent aspect of storytelling within the series.  Previously, I stated that the dull yellow we see attached to Athy in earlier chapters seems to represent caution, decay, sickness, jealousy, instability and fear while the gold, sparkling yellow seen throughout the work, signifies success, wealth, and cheerful feelings. … Continue reading Revisited: Gold, Art, and Storytelling

The Obelian Royal Family: Claude and Athanasia

I’ve been rereading the webcomic in preparation for new chapters coming soon (I hope) and I have begun to wonder about how Claude view’s Athanasia in relation to her bloodline. Let me explain:   Athanasia’s grandfather was “a tyrant obsessed with riches” while Claude is more attuned to leisure and pleasure than his predecessor. Athanasia, as we know, is obsessed with gold (for her run-away fund), … Continue reading The Obelian Royal Family: Claude and Athanasia
