well..since he can't really mention the details of his problem, is it his pride as a merchant?

although I find "cargo" a pretty good term compared to say, money or "belongings"

Lol, an interesting point of view...

He needs his cargo to maintain his very lifestyle after all.
Yeah, okay. That whole speech just made my heart melt. <3

...

Are we watching the same show? Because I don't think you're watching what I'm watching.

I agree it was a really nice speech from Lawrence. Best way for a merchant like himself to describe just how important Horo is. No matter what he has to go through he'll do everything he can to keep travelling with her. He'll also need to say something pretty good when he talks to Horo again so we should be able to look forward to that.

Am I the only one who thinks that it is likewise knightly of Lawrence to try and push the cart out of the mud in the pouring rain rather than ask Horo to even bother stepping off furing that moment, knowing she'd get muddy and wet if she did?

I just assumed someone had to control the horse, and that her weight is negligible anyway.

Oddly enough, she could have wolf-form pulled it out no problem. So next episode ends vol 3, then onto parts of vol4? I heard they were skipping it but I recognize one scene from the opening as being vol4 I think.

And the feathers Horo is wearing look very similar to the ones Diane has, which might be another reason Lawrence is shocked.) Of course, Mark is so godly helpful that Lawrence can get it anyway, or so I'm given to understand.

Regarding the feathers, my suspicion is:

I'd say Horo has something up her sleeves.

It's really his fault for trying to steal someone else's girlfriend.

I think it be really amusing if Deanne turned out to be a raven incarnation.

so I read last part of volume three...and it's quite interesting, albeit confusing. I must have missed something or the translation is wrong.

Oh my god... I spent 10 minutes typing out my thoughts on a mobile device and somehow got transported to the Naruto thread, of all things. Anyway, I hope Horo has something planned, or I'm gonna be very disappointed. I'll explain why she's kinda irking me tomorrow. B-but! I still love you Horo!

It'd be if Horo'd told him she was Lawrence's girlfriend. Instead of merely his debtor.

But thats the way it was perceived even in novels where

Spoiler for novels:


So yeah, even by others around it is understood that Horo is Lawrences woman/girlfriend.

Yes, the third parties were more lucid than Amati. Even so, I don't really blame him for being mistaken.

For all we know Horo already has a plot to secretly screw Amati.

And when I say screw, I mean "screw" in a very, VERY symbolic sense.

I don't think he gives a damn about Amati, as he seems to realise as he talks about it with Deanne.

It's just that Horo sent him a crystal clear message. "Winner takes all".

Very good episode. I liked it.

Deanna is awesome. I've got a liking to her. She's that kind of mysterious women I like. And she's pretty, furthermore.

Lawrence seems to have finally realized the worth of his companion. But I still wonder why he didn't go back and try talking with Horo. He could have at least tried it rather than sleeping on ground of local market. He's acting a bit stupid recently.

The sales and market talk was great, same as last episode. Sometimes it's a bit hard to comprehend all of that business talk. You have to be either knowledgeable in that area, or smart enough to understand it from what they say.

Amati seems to be about to act, judging from the end of this episode. What's going to avert the bad ending for Lawrence, I wonder.
