@takashichea: Yeah all the flags were there for it. Extra camera time. Wishing for him . The happy ending option. Out of place villain with a out of place hero showing up. it all kind of adds up. Odds were she would perish before the hero reborn sub arc would finish. But this is anime an wild cards are dealt more often than we think.
Oh the head fake with the fathers love interest maybe dieing because of a horror I did give that as a option. A double tragedy would have fit the over all story of the knights. But it was the not this one but that one option the story went with.
Not sure if I ever had a hawks sight. Some friends would claim I hada crows, an a want for a ravens sight. My eye sight actually is getting bad an need new glasses hopefully soon. Dam snow preventing that atm. Then maybe can get back to drawing things other than story plot conclusions.
