Summary: Set in a future dystopian United States, the town of Santa Olivia is a desert war zone where citizens have no rights. Loup Garron is the daughter of a genetically modified father who was bred by the US military as a weapon, who her powers to avenge the town, masquerading as their patron saint, Santa Olivia.
Thoughts: This is your typical dystopian, genetically-modified werewolf boxing story about a lesbian Latina boxer and her bi girlfriend. It starts a little slow, but the plot picks up towards the middle when Loup and Pilar start to fall for each other and Loup’s boxing career begins.
Warnings: Proceed with caution ⚠️
Forcible rape tw, consensual m/f and f/f sex scenes (*details and spoilers below)
New investigator gets introduced. Her name is Ihei Hairu.
Shirazu gets his new Quinque, it’s a chimera quinque. What Nutcracker said when she died still haunts him until today. Haise offers him a drink, “Quinque. A good number of people feel uneasy about it.”
Chie and Kanae talk about what to do for Tsukiyama’s sake which leads to Kanae shouting, “If it’s not Shuu-sama, then there is no point!”
Hirako Squad makes an appearance too but Hirako is nowhere to be found. Haise asks why Hirako isn’t around and Kuramoto just says, “Just some personnel affair.” One of them congratulate Mutsuki for making Rank 1.
Rereading Chapter 33 reminded me of the latest chapter’s scene where Yabuki and Naedoko are mistaken as a “cute” couple by passers-by. I wonder if Tsujita-sensei is a closet shipper of Yabuki x Kanoko. <3
That’s actually my favorite scene from ch.34! We’ve seen people dismissing the idea of Tsubaki and her dating from the second they see them for 33 chapters and suddenly she’s sitting next to Yabuki and people comment on how they cute they look? Come on Tsujita, don’t play with my heart ;o;
Fura: Ihei was in Batch 74 at the age of 16 so she’s three batches ahead of you all.
Fura: …Explains the old man who’s randomly passing through.
Haise: She was part of Arima-san’s Squad during the ‘Subjugation of Owl’ Operation. Fura-san, thank you for the explanation.
Ihei: It’s true so that’s why everyone around are all older than me so…
First Class Investigator
Ihei: I was hoping that we could all get along like we’re classmates!
Shirazu: Y-yeah! But you’re our superior right…?
Urie: (In the frontlines of that battle…)
