Good pickup point at the beginning with Linda being angry at Joan and revealing the reason afterward. What a crushing moment for Nathanial- I feel for him a bit. I'm assuming ch37 happens right after the scene with Linda when he finds out about the bullies and Nathanial. Michael and Joan hung out for a little bit before Tamara appeared with news about the school. The dance seemed to go smoothly until Joan ended up with a man who didn't seem to take no for an answer and then discovered her new ring to be magical. This gives a hint of magic and fantasy at work in this story.
The scene flows smoothly from the previous and I find it believable chronologically so far.
Starts out with a frustrating scene about a situation that happened after the duel Seto won back in Michael's home. Seto learns about this situation. The scene at the dance where Joan experienced danger and how there is the subject of magic in the ring and how the ring responded when a specific person was interacted with.
Since this is just a part of the story and seems like not to the ending then I'll wait on the theme.
Micheal's home where Joan went to sometime after the dinner with her mother.
Joan is the main character in the story. Her relationship with the other men and her family shows equal importance. The two main men characters is the Kaiba brothers.
What I like:
The moment Rebecca apologized to Seto for hacking.
"Joan and Michael lost themselves..." "...until Michael came. He pulled out and lunged for a roll of paper towels..." Ahh is there another Michael or did you mean someone else? Reading further it didn't speak about someone walking in on them. So I'm suspecting a fragment here- the sentence isn't complete. What did Michael come for? (ch38)
Debating if an introduction about where they're at is located before describing the dance, Joan's danger, and how the ring has magic in ch40. Still not sure if it'd be necessary or if it'd be okay as is. The jump seems like a little, brief introductory paragraph might improve my reading experience but just not certain.
No spelling or grammar errors found.
What I don't like:
Nathanial getting bullied at school. (Found out in beginning.)
So far so good in fact. Gah, my longest review ever made too! A couple places I kept looking back too since I couldn't quite figure out exactly what kind of mistake it is but I'm sure it's an easy fix. I'm curious to see what will happen in Japan, I'm sure something will happen. Looking forward to next time and keep up the good work!
