Subaru continues to support Emilia in her campaign to become the new Queen of Lugunica. But another candidate shows up, and it's the last person Subaru expected!
The last volume left us on kind of a cliffhanger and we dive straight in with this volume. It's Emilia's turn to speak before the Council, unfortunately she's reviled for being half elf and resembling someone shady from the past which provides an interesting tidbit that may or may not be expanded upon in future volumes.
The selection kicks off in earnest, but Subaru is parted from Emilia and left on his own with Rem at Crusch's home. While there he decides it's time to learn to fight and we could be about to see him develop and grow some more and become a stronger character. He's kind of been left to his own devices and left on his own so it's going to be interesting to see what he does.
Meanwhile the story diverges as our two characters part way because while Subaru is off taking part in his own little version of Fight Club with one of Crusch's people, Emilia is about to undergo her first trial in the selection....and it's certainly going to be interesting. The middle of this volume was a bit slow with not much happening, but we pick up again towards the end of the volume. I'm intrigued to see how things are going to progress as our characters have their own missions to fulfil.
