Is slavery still exist in that country, I thought it's against Japanese law. I guess the King is not following the law.

"Due to severity of the crime she was found innocent of"

What the royal fuck? Since when punishing the innocent is legal?

Several plot points probably got skipped to end the series early

The princess was punished for a crime she did not commit...WTF?

I guess we won't find out what happens to the elf. It still seems odd to me that the god made them implement Japanese Law, but they still had slaves. I'm pretty sure slavery is against the law in Japan.

I'm a little surprised to see it end so quickly, but since most of the plot points have concluded, I think it's a fine place to end the series.

Honestly a lot of the later cases feel incredibly rushed, especially the one with the maid. But it was still a fun ride.

Donatella is easily the best part of the series. Her goal of becoming a useful assistant is endearing, and she achieved it splendidly. Her magic is a spectacle to be sure and ends up being really useful.

The one panel where she grieved for him felt genuine and earned. At least, it felt that way for me, even after not reading this series for months.

Also Maid Princess, sure. I mean the maid case might've just been there to give him a maid, but I didn't expect the last case to give him a maid too. Haha!

What? Where did you get that idea? Didn't I just post "how to gain independence 101"?


How the hell would that be legal.

And what she did was an attack on the government. A spark to create a civil war between the king and the nobility, plus the possibility of an outside invasion. That could have destroyed the kingdom, as several people pointed out.

Would there be a possibility, in such circumstances, for the Elves to carve out a territory for themselves? We don't know enough to know that. It'd have a better chance than "following the law", though.

Peaceful? Who said anything about peace? I meant mass murder never works for getting independence. They still gotta fight.

To gain independence from such powers, you need to inflict violence not on common people (like us peasants) but to use military force to shatter the government and the military of said power so thoroughly that they can not claim authority over you. Then afterward, you need support, resources and legitimacy to rebuild a government. Otherwise you end up with shit holes like Syria where the war drags on for ages with no clear winner and more people showing up to "help"


It ain't easy. There are plenty of morally bankrupt countries that will massacre disobedient citizens. Don't be fooled when countries like China, Turkey or Saudia Arabia say they wouldn't do it. This is the price of disobedience in those countries. In particular, I think a lot of people don't knot that modern China still loves disappearing people and murdering them out of sight. They also love to seize all your official papers so you're essentially unable to even leave your house or get bank accounts.

Too bad it was cancelled.

Thanks for the translation, Waterflame!

I liked it. Pretty decent place to end honestly, if it had kept going I think the shtick would have grown old.

Another reminder that around elves, watch yourselves.

The story always was more on the episodic side so ending it like this is quite sufficient enough.

Thank you Waterflame Scanlations! This was a nice change of pace from the usual isekai fare ?

And when it starts getting interesting... the axe beat the laws! Godammit!
