a female lead/love interest decides to allow herself to be given to a bad guy to save her friends, she doesnt bother to do anything to save them except meekly surrender. This weak, submissive persona was totally different in my opinion to the girl she was up to this point. She was a scaredy cat but had pride, will and intellect. These all are abandoned in this part of the story.
She also treats the MC horribly repeatedly during this time of her betrayal of him, and after as well although he has once again put his own life at risk to save her. She basically went from comical lighthearted tsundere character to full on contemptible thot.
Eventually she realizes how much of a s*upid bit*h shes being and saves MC in the nick of time, but for me, the ship had already sailed and there should be no forgiveness or redemption for her (honestly, I think the author even having her do those things was totally f*cked up).
If she died redeeming herself that would be one thing, but the author just has everything go back to normal after her horrible choices/behavior. I cant stand that myself, but I know that others will be more tolerant. If it wasnt for these events, which are pretty serious to me, I’d give this a 5 star rating.
