Gyokuen kissed Hakuryuu.
She freaking/fucking/bloody KISSED HIM.
On a more serious note, I would like to say something about her. I know that she did terrible things, but I don’t want her to die. I might be too optimistic, but I want her to be changed. To realise that her obsession with Illah would give her nothing in the end.
If Aladdin could make the loving mother figure that she was, come back, I think it would be a fitting end. After all, the protagonists ( And especially Aladdin) tries to avoid any form of violence or death. I think that he (Aladdin) would try to help Arba/Gyokuen, just like he wants to save Judal or saved Mogamett .
But still, I am worried about Hakuryuu now. I have this feeling that there’s something that we aren’t being told about him. But we’ll see in the next chapter !
