I do wonder if Junko will be more prominently featured than in Book 2. Still unsure of the power gap between them and the MC, the one opponent I’m unsure my MC can defeat, even though I very much desire to end Junko’s life.
Still hypothetically even if the MC does somehow manage to kill them, I have a feeling it would still be a kind of victory for Junko unless they were defeated through attunement.
Alternatively maybe it would be better to redeem Junko (a little similar to Prodigal’s arc in Herofall), since they were once the MC’s first love, not that I’ve ever been able to feel sentimental regarding them.
All I personally want is to reclaim Sensei’s katana (I’m sentimental about it, even in Junko deserves it) and protect the MC’s nakama (never thought I’d ever use that word).
Do you think the drama between the MC and Junko will be a series long arc?
