Is the horse part of the knight succubus?

While I was hoping for some farcille ammo, I'm not mad about the androgynous edgy elf prince lmao (that DEATH on the eyepatch..)

legit unsure if the elf is a guy or a girl...lipstick's throwing me off considering Utena's a thing

Oh thank you, I understand now.
Both scenarios you wrote are very interesting

I get the feeling that Izu is not a human with a cat's soul, but a cat with a human's soul, which is why her actual memories (presumably from gaining human sapience) are only from her hybrid form and not from her cat OR human form.

Also another thing I noticed is the attention called to the fish before Izu finds Senshi; maybe succubi in their base forms are leeches. Author seems to like shapechangers having weird and interesting (nonstandard) basic forms.

What on earth is Senshi attracted to... I have to know.

page 8 : laios goes out to get some milk , probably the milk from the minotaurs that he milked by himself from chapter 46 :

Oh lord this is my first post on mangadex, but by god, this chapter was amazing, I couldn't resist.
Laius running off by himself despite knowing the dangers.
Who knew even the greatest gourmet, Senshi, was not immune to his desires.
Marcielle's dream construct. I thought we might get baited with a Laius (or even his sister given Marcielle's attachment to her). Oof.
Poor Chilchack, these halfling ladies all resemble his wife (presumably in her prime) and whilst he started crying tears of laughter at Marcielle's succubus, the succubi mimicking his wife double teamed him so he was in heaven-hell and continued crying tears of bliss/sorrow.

@Shelly I should have made clear that I consider Izu's situation to be both a curse and a case of two souls, or one-and-a-half or what have you. I'm going by Marcille's speculation that an extra soul is mixed with Izu's, and taking a slight step further to assume that it's bound there by magic. Whatever mechanisms make the second-soul curse resistant to dispelling would also be more resistant to changeling magic than the human soul the curse was attached to. Thus, only her human factor is transformed by changeling magic, and it's not strange that the cat factor remains constant.

Alternate, less-developed speculation:

Marcille being into ultra-cliche 90s bishounen made my day, perfect right down to the eyepatch and pointy chin.

@o8o Thanks to your reminder of how Succubi work, it’s very likely that Izumi is going to be seeing her “birth family she never met” as her deepest desire. It also fits with what Chilchack said about “someone had to have raised you!”


Who wants to bet Marcille will see the teleporter Canary as her “Prince” type? ? His one eye could use an eyepatch after all, and he’s totally scarred enough. Seems plausible

@Metonym
I don't understand how your reply connects to what I wrote. I'm talking about the scenario where we assume it's a fusion of souls rather than a curse. I'm not saying it is one it the other, but "if it was fusion, then:" (and then my question from before).

pages 17 and 20 though lmao

Thank you very much for the translation! Damn, I missed this manga so much last month.
1- Izutsumi's on the spotlight again, huh. She's not my type of character, but I can see her character subtly developing since her introduction, and I appreciate Ryoko sepparating some time in the story to do so;
2- W-What did the monster thots did to Big Dad Senshi, he got SYMPHONED out of his nut vital energy... (I wonder what's Senshi's type, though. Hope we can get his and Laius' perspective next chapter);
3- Laius really invested all his brain cells into monster knowledge. Can't disapprove of that, tbh, monsters are rad.
4- That first succubus' hair was in the realm of legends, holy damn. My man Chilchack knows his women.
5- Marcille's succubus was the cherry on top of this chapter, I laughed way more than I should at this, specially at her little "whew". Also, entering some polemic waters here, people on tumblr seem confident that this somewhat "proves" that Marcille is a lesbian, but honestly I think it does the opposite? They're clearly a male elf because that whole appearance plays on the "bishounen" and the "prince on a white horse" tropes. Elves in this manga are androgenous, so you can't simply tell the gender of one based on their face.

@Shelly One might assume that curses are built to last, since that's the point of a curse. Engineering a curse to be resistant to outside influence seems par for the course.

@Beregorn Going to disagree with the idea of Izu's condition being her fundamental nature, due to the fact that she keeps cat ears across all her changeling transformations, and they're always at the top of her head, regardless of the typical anatomy of the species she becomes. This, compared to everyone else's ears becoming species-typical. This indicates to me that Izu's cat features are the result of a secondary factor resistant to changeling magic, and there seems little reason as yet to believe that this mystery factor is anything but something more akin to a soul-curse than to a natural state of being.
