Not exactly. Her situation is more along the lines of someone who has a frail constitution. She can get easily exhausted, injured, or sick due to doing magical stuff. If she behaves herself, and if the flows of magic within and without of her are properly regulated, she could survive perfectly well. That's what Elias and Angelica and even Linden have been trying to do with her. That's what the Fae healer advised her to do.

Chise's big problem is that she simply does not care about herself. The idea of protecting herself and taking care of her own health doesn't even occur to her. At the moment, she's her own worst enemy.

Her problems are exacerbated by her behavior, but Elias also said whatever treatment he'd give her would be experimental. And without it, or if it doesn't work, she's predicted to die young.

If it does work, she'll be a powerful witch, and they can live millenias.

Yeah, it's not something that can be solved by healthy lifestyle. As she is she has maybe fifteen years at most. With her current behavior much less.

Chapter updated. The fact that no one finds it strange that she knows how to get in contact with a black market dealer says a lot, but I'm glad for more information on the college and their arrangement with the warden.

Everyone in that room knows she was sold, so why would they be surprised?

^ I agree. We also don't know what this new character at the end of the chapter will introduce.

Hmm. Chise digging her own grave has become a tad repetitive. But it seems she's decided that she's dug enough.

For me I thought the chapter was both touching and heart breaking at the same time. Chise definitely did "dig her own grave" again, but I do not feel it is repetetive or something not in her favor or the like.

Rather, for me it is remarkably consistent with who Chise has grown to be. It often is the nature of our behaviors to have both good and bad things intermixed with why, how and when we have recourse to them consciously and especially when we "just act". Sure we can grow out of them and strive to change them or even "re-build" the underlying structure beneath the actions or habits themselves, but these sort of things don't happen overnight for most people.

The comment from Chise to Elias that most humans don't fully know why they act the way they do and Elias' response were both very telling for me and serve to illustrate this point for me.

For me the mere fact that Chise is bcoming more aware of the things that move her, matter to her and the like is in and of itself a beautiful thing to see. At the same time it is very sad to see the events and encounters she goes through, but some people are dealt those kind of hands in their lives.

This may be unnecessary to point out, and may already be known to most. If one were to boil down my response to the past few chapters it would be: "This is a beautiful, extremely sad and mysterious thing we are seeing here ... and one that rings true to life for me". Of course it will not ring true or feel the same to everyone....

I knew there was a prequel/ ova / movie but not a series.

New chapter is out. There's a lot of Charm Person magic going around in the chapter. That witch was shady, but I didn't see Cartaphilus involvement at the end.

The manga updated online. A lot of things were revealed. Including some dirty foreshadowing at the end there.
