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?!

THEORY: Athanasia’s Past Lives (Chapter 70)

So… chapter 70 hit me like a brick wall. Anyone else? But it gave me a really interesting idea/theory as to what Lucas is talking about for Athanasia. What if Athanasia’s past lives or story is similar to Elise’s in Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady with the Lamp? As in, what if Athanasia lived her life as Athanasia before and then came to another world (“our” world) … Continue reading THEORY: Athanasia’s Past Lives (Chapter 70)

THEORY: Anastasios Is Changing

theanimeview: Remember how Claude changed after spending time with Athanasia? Having a child and spending time with them is known to change people and I think that might be happening with Anastasios, particularly after he reacts to Jennette words regarding family in Chapter 62: His reaction is not the same disgust or disappointment he held when he saw Claude’s behavior around Athanasia. It’s almost like, … Continue reading THEORY: Anastasios Is Changing

ANALYSIS: Gold, Art, and Storytelling Re-revisited

OMG, so many things about chapter 62. I already posted about Anastasios possibly changing, but now it’s time to talk (again) about ART, particularly the mirror images we see between Claude meeting Athanasia and him meeting Jennette.  When Claude meets Athanasia, look at the hues behind them–both are surrounded by yellow, which we’ve talked about before (Part 1 Link – Part 2 Link). The chapter … Continue reading ANALYSIS: Gold, Art, and Storytelling Re-revisited

Theory: Athanasia’s Curse

In Chapter 41, the old bookstore owner tells Athanasia that she’s cursed. This is before she has the ribbon that Jennette gives her, which is being purchased earlier in the same chapter. The old man maybe an unreliable source, but I’m going to assume he’s right in this instance until proven otherwise. My theory is that her curse is something carried over from what I … Continue reading Theory: Athanasia’s Curse
