Well, like I said, perhaps I'm just a pansy, but Saya's growing propensity for sadism & abject cruelty as it manifests throughout the novel, really shattered the image I'd had of her. That being, a kind, gentle (well mostly gentle, given her diet), somewhat mischievous & misunderstood creature who simply wanted to be loved and whom would never hurt anyone, at least not intentionally. As a result, I could somewhat forgive what she did to Suzumi, given how naively ignorant & misguided her actions were to a certain extent and that even she herself suffered the repercussions from them, perhaps learning her lesson in the process. What she did to Yoh later on however? What she did with such premeditated, merciless cruelty? Why Saya? You were supposed to be better than this. Now you're just as monstrous & barbaric as the dirtiest of normalfags. Just as cruel & heartless as the most demonic of females. You were supposed to be different. I wanted you to be different. I mean, honestly, the way she just casually suggests that Fuminori should test out his axe on poor, little Yoh quivering in the corner. The fact she's already wracked with such constant pain, due to Saya's botched mutation of her, and that she would then go on to utter such a horrible, horrible thing. That hurts me Saya. That hurts me so much. By comparison, her "blooming", as it were, and dooming the world to an eldritch induced apocalypse, seemed tame by comparison. Anyway, like I said before, I'm a very gentle hearted wizard. Saya, despite her unassuming form, just felt so very coarse & jagged to me past a certain point. Like the pedals of a bashful, little flower, Saya's true face & heart, stomped the little flower of a Wizard I am flat. Again, all the horrible things she both says aloud & does and all the malevolence & sadism she delights in was simply too much for my delicate constitution. I suppose one could say Ryoko was also quite cruel in her own way, but even she seems mild by comparison. Why does everybody have to be so mean? I just wanted Saya to be my gentle wiz wife, not a cruel monster, taken after normalfags.
