A Failure to Communicate

Is becoming the bane of our heroine.



From episode 5 of Ascendance of a Bookworm in which our heroine discovers the cost of ink and has her most cunning plans embezzled in good faith.



Anyway, minimalist animation aside, I'm still enjoying this show.

1 We were thinking #1 or #2.  My wife recalled (I drink too much to recall) the opening of the series where a priest/alchemist puts a circlet onto Main to recall* her memories. 
The colored-eye thing happens in emotional distress, not despair.  If the writers are on their game, that's a point. 
*If they are erasing her memories** for bring "a witch" I shall resist the urge to fly to Japan and crucify the writers.
**I know japs see "the person" distinct from "their memories."  I not only find this alien but disgusting.  Not my blog, not my post to carry on.  Still love this show.  So far.

2 No on #3, and Otto is very, very devoted to his wife, as will soon become clear. Also no need to smuggle nails into Japan; at the current pace, I don't think she'll even meet the priest this cour. There's a lot of ground to cover.

3 I figure the eye-thing is a manifestation of some innate magical talent that's responding to her emotional distress. We know there's magic, based on the priest from the first episode.
