So we're all in agreement that this MarieXEldermask thing, assuming there isn't more to it, is total bull@#$%?
It's hard for me to judge such things properly because I'm baised due to my open hatred of Eldermask's character (who I continue to insist this series would be better without). But I don't even know how to play devils advocate for this. Basically 306 was a terrible chapter that doesn't even really make sense. I love Magician but this was utter crap.

It just didn't make sense. Marie wants to be with Edermask despite all he put her through. My question delusional or not there's no way he's sick enough to take advantage of such thing and she's just trolling with this "fake relationship". It makes me almost want to drop this in a way. We don't see him for 100s of chapters and this is the crap kim comes up with? I'm hoping it's truly a farce because it is complete utter crap. I can't believe until this fleshes out a bit more in a few chapters.
I mean, splitting people up into groups now.
Is there anyone who wants to read even a single chapter of Marie, Iremi, and Eldermask traveling together? Why is this manhwa doing this to us, for love the god why? It's like something that was designed to make every fan on this forum miserable for some reason or another. I guess the parts focusing on Enzu and Molly might not be too bad but Iremi and Eldermask are certain to dominate screen time and there is just no way that ends up any way but awful.
Could this turn out better than I think it will? Sure, but....

I could care less about said relationships. I wish it was the classic 40+ page chapter though.
Jammin: It's Iremi, Enzu and Edermask; Marie's not travelling with them this time.
I like that Edermask was weakened in the fight with Janus, because it means more growth for Iremi and especially Enzu. I really hope to see them beat Fenelia.
I want to ask: Is Edermask still the main character? I dropped it few months ago as I liked him as the main character but all I wss seeing was that sword boy and Iremi.
i prefer 3 being tohether ,its not edermask and the duo , its the trio
Out of the three, I only trully care about Enzu. He is a good guy, powerful but not too much, nice technique, good design, sad past ... a nice hero for a story.
Iremi is ok but still annoying (a selfish brat is ok ... but now that she looks like an adult, I find some scenes ridiculous).
Edermask is ok but his actions were stupid and incoherent for a guy supposed to be older than almost anything. I know old doesn't mean wise but his actions were really reckless. I have trouble to attach myself to a main character who is almost at the top of the food chain from the very beginning. I always prefer the underdogs as main characters. Being so powerful and being a main character, there is cadis etrama di raizel & the others ...
For some reason in manhwa there are few things more common characters than the older mildly anti-heroic pre-developed dominate fighters. Such as Goomoonryong(Breaker), Lightning Tiger(Veritas), and Munsu(Shin Angyō Onshi). It's not a character type I find overly compelling but if enough color is added to the mix I can be brought to like it. Like say Goomoonryong and the running jokes about him trying to seduce his fellow teacher, stuff like that made it work for me. Eldermask is the most pure embodiment of that with very little else going for him on the side. Which causes me to feel that he's, in general, rather dry and uninteresting.
But I'm of the school of thought that good characters are defined by their flaws more than their strengths.
i liked the story better when Enzu was the central chara ie the first part of season 2. But even if they are together now i doubt it would be the same it would be completely different. Eldermask just got bigtime owned by Janus Enzu and iremy are pretty strong so i think it will be a lot different.
Speaking of that the biggest problem of this story is how come after so many chapters Enzu has had the best character development. Literally no one has evolved like he has. He's become quite the fine young man and has a means to improve himself. I hope sometime they reveal to Iremi who she is but keep it from Edermask. Weakened as he is now I think he'd go to arbitrary means to capture Iremi for himself. I can't explain it but we all know she will be the key to defeating Janus need the end of this story. I just don't like how immature she still acts. Especially around Edermask. I hope he's just being a douche to keep them away but his persona right now really stinks.
