Yeah, I think the pointy nose thing is a Japanese media trope, but I can't quite remember where it came from...

But y'know, brainwashing yourself for fun and profit, good times.

[ten more pages of stalling]

i think the situation where she submitted her arm as a snack was probably worse than the fingers thing

The story's narrative direction almost got derailed with the preceding overly dramatic events seemingly written just to make Bernadette suffer for personal growth in implausible situations, but it makes a bit of a recovery with these last few pages even though it's still riding the edge there as it maintains its grip on the consistency of the law of the arena. Frankly the expectation that Bernadette should somehow learn street smarts within the span of all these events is a bit much, because there isn't much breathing room in the pacing for her to attain character development in a satisfying way. Between all the major events, nothing has really happened to give her enough opportunity to absorb any useful information that wouldn't also end up pushing her too far in the other direction (or giving conflicting advice) and having it turn out worse than before. The two characters have been able to develop their relationship, but that's about it here, besides getting that chekhov's offhand sword in the process. The longform story format where scenes were slower paced had more of an impact than trying to push the story along without any apparent reason as to why it's necessary.

if they can measure the volume of the room (perhaps by running some tests of flooding the room first), they could easily determine how to do so down to the exact amount of water, preventing most of the accidents that would be caused by initial error. this is, of course, assuming that the room does not automatically drain faster than they can fill it or some other anticheat trickery. there is also the issue that the illusion would easily be able to manipulate such a complex setup to kill the user with slight obfuscation.

note that the person going in would also need a hose to allow the air pocket caused by this arrangement to escape, since otherwise the water would stop rising the moment the entrance becomes completely submerged

you linking back to that also reminds us of the creepy footprints, so that's one loose end tied up

we didn't spend this entire fight wrecking all of these untrained goons on this one moment for it not to demonstrate that he still has the sword

back tracking slightly but

last panel Should the spell not be Extraction, rather than Abstraction?
It's the name of the sword technique/magic, not necessarily describing the action she's performing with it.

My guess is dementia!

also, if the source of the barrier is also maybe the source of the secret of magic, I would suspect that it would be really difficult to cheat it with magic

this new page seems to be implying that maytag has only avoided emotional trauma instead of experiencing it, in order to endure physical trauma

which wouldn't work on a defense mechanism that projects pure emotional trauma

edit: hooray for adversity and character growth! really specific challenging situations for every character!

basically, anything clever that you could think of is probably undone by the room cheating with magic to ensure that you're not cheating with not magic

as if it is some sort of bullshit test created to only allow somebody who is "worthy" of getting in

sounds familiar

she hasn't really considered what kind of things might have happened to the person who got the farthest, eh

She's probably just going to use it to retrieve her without having to step inside.

also it's cooler than just tying a rope around her waist

Since Maytag's usual tactic is to attempt to accept the feeling as part of her own being, she'll probably try that first.

I imagine that there are parallels to the magic test, except that there's no protections on this one preventing it from outright harming the participant.
