Hello ! This is my first time posting here and I know that my english isn't really good, so be indulgent please !
I was re-reading chapter 55 and wondering about the front picture... I want your opinions ! Symbole time !
So, first I find it really beautiful (useless but always good to say), and find it really confusing too ! Maybe am I just stupid.
So we can see Break, standing in a cage, with his hand on his chest (on his heart I think) and with a white rose who winds (?) on the metal. Does the rose symbolize Reim ? Because he's in a way the "innocent" character (white rose), he was really close to Break (really, really, really, really close, so...okay I shut my mouth. XD)(so the rose is on his heart), young (the young flower) and he's well... dead (the petal who fall off). Or am I wrong ? And so Break is the only one standing up in the cage, with Gilbert free outside. Does that symbolize thet fact that he's alone, prisonner of his sorrow ?
And since I'm re-reading the chapter (better for you, if you're interested, to read it again), I'm having a few more questions. In the frst page, there is a flash-back of Break, telling the young Gilbert to remember his priorities, if there is someone that he wants to protect etc. This is obviously for the transition with Gil's POV, but I'm wondering if it isn't also a reminder of Break's relationship with Reim... Because he's obviously (surprisingly for him ?) angry about his death.
And a last one, that really DISTURBS me. In this chapter, from page 29 to 31, Break apologies to Reim : "Sorry Reim, looks like I failed once again... but at least I'll get rid of the two of them !", to the Will of the Abyss : "I couldn't grant your wish either, forgive me" and finally says this : "Well... I don't really care.. either way."
I say... WHAT ? >___<''
So... I can understand that Break doesn't care anymore of the wish of the Will, since he's going to die in the chapter (remember his suicidal thoughts)(so romantic !!! dying after his revenge ! *shot*), but why is he saying "either way" ??? He's extremely angry about Reim's death (we just have to see his reactions in this chapter and in the previous one), so why does he says something like "You're dead, I coulnd't save you, but I don't care." ? Am I misunderstanding the meaning of this "either way" ? Is it the translation ? My unperfect english ? Because I personnaly understand the "Sorry Reim, looks like I failed once again..." as an apologies for not have been able the save him, or for a promise that they've made together (others details made me thinks that but that's not the point.).
So... now I've talked, my grammar is probably horrible, but I want to know your opinions
