Queen of the Kingdom of Moon Orchid:

Everyone, if you flipped to the epilogue before reading the story, then Yu Wo would like to remind you at this point that this time, story content is mentioned in the epilogue. Therefore, please go read the story first, and then look at the epilogue afterwards. Thank you.
In this volume I, Yu Wo, did something extremely outrageous… I made the main character, Sun, blind.
However, the most important thing is, I only properly told everyone that Sun had really become blind at the end of the story.
Actually, in the story, after he resurrected Leaf and woke up from losing consciousness, he never fully regained his sight. This made describing things in the story extremely difficult. However, though it was difficult I, Yu Wo, was very happy while I was writing. As I wrote, I wondered whether the readers could tell that Sun had actually become blind?
There are actually many places where one can tell that Sun is unable to see anything. Since the story is from a first-person perspective, everyone can infer from Sun’s last words how much effort he had put into learning how to use his sensing ability, and thus find the clues hidden in the narration.
Hehe, I’m really very curious. Just how many readers had already guessed that Sun had truly gone blind even before reading the confession from Sun at the end that he was blind?
Everyone, why don’t you come to my website to express your opinions?
Next, I am going to talk about the most important part — the results of the household popularity poll of the characters that have just been decided!
I have especially invited an artist, ASH, for a guest appearance to draw the characters that are ranked in the top five. Thanks to ASH for her warm support.
First place: Grisia Sun
(Yu Wo’s comments: The main character is the main character alright. If the main character in a story written in a first-person perspective didn’t manage to take first place, I think he might as well ascend to heaven and repent in front of the God of Light.)
Second place: Lesus Judgment
(Yu Wo’s comments: Cool, handsome, intelligent, and is also in charge of explaining (exposing) Sun’s crafty schemes. Even the author loves you.)
Third place: Roland Hell
(Yu Wo’s comments: Although he’s dead, love doesn’t distinguish between living and dead people.)
Fourth place: Ice Knight
(Yu Wo’s comments: What? I’m eating blueberry pie, hold on!)
Fifth place: Adair
(Yu Wo’s comments: Being utterly loyal definitely has its rewards. Even if he were to die of overwork in the future, now that he has a memorial arch, he would be able to die in peace.)
Artist ASH’s words:
I’m very happy to be able to make a guest appearance in the Legend of Sun Knight Volume 3 OxO!! At this point, I would first of all like to thank the editor and owner of ChunTian (Spring).
I’ve reread the Legend of Sun Knight volumes 1 and 2 countless times. No matter which knight, they all have such interesting characters that can make people burst into laughter.
Thus, after reading the second volume, I immediately decided to draw the top five characters from the online popularity poll.
While I was doing the drafts, I discovered that Ice and Adair had actually kicked the cute Storm out of the top five! O口O!! (Shock) — Actually I really want to draw Storm. (Covers face)
Adair did have a certain image in my mind at the very least, but his appearance was still changed three times. (In the end I gave him a hairstyle that conformed to the norms of society.) As for Ice, he didn’t have many scenes to begin with, and he only specialized in giving Grisia cookies to feed him and keep him full. Everyone seems to have a particularly good impression of him as a “virtuous wife,” but I couldn’t think of any ideas for his outer appearance. Therefore, I drew two completely different versions. However, no matter what it’s still a work in progress, so let’s wait until Ice has a more definite appearance in the story before considering this again. ^_^
Speaking of which, why is Ice’s posture so strange? It’s because I had originally wanted to insert him in the double spread too, so…
Hopefully it looks like an exaggeratedly comical action. He appears to be pulling out a sword but is actually holding cookies. Just like how Grisia is actually making his facial mask. (laugh)
So then, I hope to have another chance to draw the other characters, and also that everyone will like them XD.
