Apparently getting an anime too

But I care more that the art for the manga is by the author of h-manga Akujo Kousatsu
The main heroine is clearly an Akujo



That Face

I have hype for anime but the manga downward fast-paced confusing to follow.

Isn't it possible it was killed? Though it's also it's possible that it went back to the demon world.

I don't like how Shiruka had to be ordered to form a contract with some bad, perverted guy (just being a pervert isn't bad - he's also been painted in a bad light and it seems like he could be an antagonist or something). Though now I hope she won't get into trouble for forming a contract with Theo instead of him.

Wow, just finished reading the available chapters and I felt this was great. I really like how they've set up the MC, shes manipulative and smart for the right reasons. Shes found an alternative than being married off to a pervert harem loving lord eh.

Creator of Record of Loddoss war ? Loved that Anime (watched both), so I should look foward to this alot. Not surprised I like it already.

Tho, it was a little confusing with the attack in chapter 1. It was like an assassination ? Are we suppose to know why the monster appeared ?

Um, isn't this an LN adaptation? Maybe we'll know the answer to your question if we read the LN. Though I don't know how we could do that.

I don't think being a harem-loving pervert itself is a bad thing per se. It's what kind of person that harem-loving pervert is that matters. If he doesn't care about his women more than as things to have sex with, then he's bad. But not all harem-wanting men are like that. It does seem like the lord Shiruka was being given to is that kind of bad harem-loving pervert, though.

I saw some people at LHTranslation comments section calling Shiruka a b*tch. I don't agree with that, but what do you guys think?

I wouldnt call her a bitch yet. Like I mentioned earlier, shes indeed manipulative, but she had her reasons to it. Too early to judge anything else. But it gave me the impression she was testing his strength, confirming he'd be a better alternative to being married to a bad man. Remember in the first chapter she was on the verge of crying thinking how terrible things have gone. She looked like she realized her life was heading to despair. Plus Your not going to put your faith in a random kid you come across unless he shows some strength are you ? Thats how I perceived it. Shes actually a pretty strong character and I look forward to that. In my opinion of course ^_~ Thats why I am interested so much probably.

Basically at the end of the day, after her seeing his potential, she wasnt going to have him refuse contracting with her, thats why I feel she acted like that. He gave her unintentionally a window of opportunity ^_~

@wuhugm: I haven't read any of this mangaka's other works, so you'll have to be more descriptive.

I've not read this series so can't comment specifically on it, but "akujo" as a character type is something like "vixen", "femme fatale" etc. Literal translation is "wicked girl/woman".

Well this is good and it's from the creator of Record of Lodoss War.
I do like the female lead, she isn't helpless and she knows how to take advantage of her situation to not only escape an unwanted marriage with a noble who isn't interested with fighting the forces of Chaos(Warhammer? lol) but also use her "master" to help her unite the warring factions against their true enemy.

hmm interesting for this kind of theme
I kind of forgot the demon existence at this point

both MC are good
Theo seem to have enough charisma to be a leader with a bit of brain in his head
Shiruka is a serious and manipulative type and prefer more calculating way
she seem like the one who control the flow at first but it will not be an easy job for her anymore due to Theo preferable way lol

Theo, the naive but kind leader.
Shiruka, the serious yet pragmatic tactician.
You know people are making jokes that this series is related to Warhammer since they're fighting creatures of Chaos and their mages use the power of Chaos.

i loled at how Theo was able to tag along with the people itself while in the other hand Shiruka doesn't know much that Theo's way can gain people's trust faster.

Chapter 5
So we meet Shiruka's Cat Familiar, Balgiari, who is tasked to ask for Aishera, an old classmate of Shiruka for help, as a rival Knight prepares to attack Theo's land.
