Which is why we had that Yor got a bullet in her butt chapter after showing the end result of her job at the start of sid chapter because showing Yor killing dozens of people and coming home with a smile is not as "wholesome" as Anya being angry at Damien, then reading his thoughts and doing something that makes the tsundere Scion fall even harder for her or Twilight surviving the crazy stuff happening at his work, like in this case an insane underground tennis tournament which was great.
These are all things the author should have thought about when planning the series. Now the damage is done and the result is one of the supposedly three main characters hardly getting any focus.

That been said, this latest chapter was good. It was just so satisfying to see Yoru completely destroy Nightfall's pride. It also goes to show that when it comes to physical prowess, Yoru is unmatched. She's on a whole different level, even from Loyd. Which is more of a shame she usually doesn't get any focus.
