The plot swings into high gear as Reina faces her fiancé.
The conversation between Daisy and Morizono is pretty one-sided until Morizono reveals an interesting tidbit about M’s Testament. Reina is feeling down thanks to her unfortunate engagement, so the gang cheers her up with a rousing snowball fight after which she decides to call off the engagement and ends overhearing Morizono’s plan to auction off the virus during his and Reina’s engagement party.
Morizono finds Reina at his door and slaps her into silence when she tries to blackmail him out of the engagement. Teru and friends later receive a mail from her saying she has no intention of coming back and is happily in love with her fiancé, which they know to be bogus. Trapped in a hotel room, Reina musters her strength and writes a secret message in lemon juice on a letter to her friends explaining the situation, asking for help.
I’ve got to say, Dengeki Daisy’s plot has never been better. With the revelation of M’s Testament, the program Teru’s brother, Souichirou, was decrypting before he died, and Morizono’s dastardly plan, the stakes are incredibly high. Another admirable detail is that even with all this intense plot going on, the story never forgets its true intentions, to be a hilarious romantic comedy with friendship and feelings and whatnot. Once again, comedy is deftly woven in with serious moments and characters find their inner strength. Sure, the snowball fight scene was decently irrelevant, but it was so lighthearted that it makes the reader forget what the story is about to deal with some serious business. All in all, I couldn’t be more excited for the next chapter.
