Wait…Can someone please explain to me why, in the manga, Hugo’s True Fire Rune is visible on the back of his hand, but Sasarai’s True Earth Rune isn’t visible on the back of his?
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNFORGIVABLE
I DEMAND AN EXPLANATION
Because in the manga both Sasarai and Luc’s runes are on their chests. You can see in the final volume during Luc’s flashbacks when they were babies. They also both clutch their chests when their runes act up.
The mangaka is pretty consistent about making the true runes visible on Hugo, Chris and Geddoe so this must have been a deliberate choice. I don’t know why. Maybe it indicates their artificial natures, that they were created for the runes rather than being chosen by them? (the runes are at their hearts, so to speak)
