Nice to see the interest from this review. I have enjoyed the series, and can't wait for the next volume.

I'm enjoying the series as well, particularly volume 2; Gregorio had a bit more to him than i expected, and he worked well as a terrifying antagonistic force. There was some real tension there when the hero, not knowing any better, invites him along, while both Ares and the audience know full well how bad it could turn out.

I also enjoyed the character arc of Spica; i think the reviewer is being a bit unfair and not entirely accurate to say she "worships Gregorio." As i read it, her arc begins with her being powerless, aimless, and purposeless, then chosen for the hero for factors entirely out of her control, and then gradually she begins to find her own motivation and become the protagonist of her own story. I saw her spoiler[apprenticing to Gregorio] as just the end result of her trying to take her life into her own hands, misguided though it may be.

All in all a B's completely fair for this series so far; it's an enjoyable parody that does some interesting things.
