Asahi is leading the humans to war against the Draconians, all under the banner of saving a kidnapped Ruri. The fight is over before it begins thanks to the overwhelming strength of the Draconian fighters. Ruri still hasn’t confessed her true identity to the king, so Asahi’s repetitive accusation of kidnapping a human named Ruri bewilders most of the dragon court. After a botched attempt to escape the castle, Asahi starts to see what the world is like without her magic charming everyone, but she still doesn’t understand why people aren’t falling over themselves to help her. Ruri finally gets a moment of sweet closure by lecturing Asahi about her gullibility, but it may take several years of hard labor on Draconia’s prolific farm to sort everything out.
This series is still adorable, but this volume gets a little heavier as Ruri confronts her former school mates who were captured with Asahi but are now no longer enthralled by her. The overfairies are also adorable, having both found bodies that are cute and fluffy like Ruri likes. The author's note at the end lets us know that we were waiting so long for this volume (it's been almost two years!) specifically because the illustrations for the war sequence took so long, so hopefully we don't have more delays like that! We still didn't get to the moment of the king finding out about Ruri, so that tension is growing, and this volume added a bit of hilarity to it as the audience knew what Asahi's frustration was all about.
