Whoops, missed this! Sorry. Thanks for the feedback. <3 People have been pinging me on social media about this story, but my favorite place for discussion is the forums. Feels so organized~.

Re: Kado progressing vs showing his true colors, this isn't a spoiler, but you're right that it's both. Kado's development arc is a very long one, and he's a very severe guy, so his reaction to a challenge is to either cower/hide or leap headfirst. So we're seeing a little bit of that here, in him making an extreme decision and following through...but I also wanted to give him more of the narrative now that the audience knows some of what he was hiding, because a lot of his real personality was hidden under lying and manipulation. I was honestly kinda worried that stuff would get lost in the books proper, plus Sachi getting an orgasm makes the readership happy, so boom! Cherry Bomb was the perfect answer.

(Yeah, the Cherry Bomb Collections are kinda confusing, since they're bind-ups of stuff to a certain date, and then we have stuff rolling out until we have enough for another bind-up. We should probably clarify that better!)
