the redhead melty's sister
You mean Whore? Since that is her actual name now.
hehehe, that was a good part. I liked that
But yeah you are right that is the reason they use for justifying Fuckboy and co. suddenly acting less fuckboyish, and it makes sense to an extent especially in Ren's case (being as Ren was the least fuckboyish of them all) but just having the queen come in and clean house the way she did... it felt really deus ex machina and I feel like the writers could have handled it better. There was a lot of potential for those episodes immediately following the Queen and Naofumi meeting. Like, she may have suspected from her spies that he was not necissarily as bad as everyone thought he was but why have trust him so completely so quickly just based on that? The theme of the show up to that point had been that Naofumi had to work harder for everyone's trust.
Then after the trial itself all the people of the land just went along with all the Queens reforms despite the show previously making a huge deal about how the Three Hero's Church being around for so long and having such a grip on the people was a major part of why there were so many problems in the first place. I mean, imagine that the actual devil was summoned to the modern world, the devil that people had been indoctrinated for hundreds of years to hate and fear, then some bitch accuses the devil of raping her but fails a lie detector test. Is that really going to make people suddenly cool with the devil now? Oh, then the president decrees that the devil is now to be worshiped equally with god and Jesus (i.e. the Queens's crackdown on the Three Hero's church and replacing them as the official religion). Really think that would fly in the real world? But in this world it did, just because the writers felt they needed to wrap up that story line and move on.
Like I said still a good show, but it stopped being a great show at that point.
