Review in No. 39595498
A little character analysis on Silver Spoon. Something she does is misinterpreted as a good action and this makes her wonder if she's made the right decisions in life.
I like the story, but I don't think it's that good, despite having good ideas in it. It's a bit too meandering. We open with a school scene. Then we're following Silver Spoon back home. Some random thoughts about Diamond Tiara, Filthy Rich, her own parents. Then she buys a record she heard the CMC mention. Goes home to listen to it. The lyrics make he feels he has made a bad call.
That's a lot to cover in under 3k words. I feel they're good ideas, but there's never something to connect them beyond "Should Silver Spoon really have become Diamond's lackey?"
Engaging, but pretty meh, overall.
