Well, of COURSE she looks up to the guy who made summoning magic hammers possible. And yes, this is still moving towards people playing a board game.
I'm not going to go too terribly overboard on anime tropes and memes with this new character (whose name I shall reveal later on), but there was no avoiding "senpai" and "can has". There simply wasn't.
I did adjust her outfit ever so slightly in this comic, in that part of the skirt extends above the belt. I'm not going to claim this makes more sense, as I'm not sure that loose belt actually does anything, but I think it looks better that way.
