The title for this is not intended to be a meta reference to the sudden change in style, there's an actual meaning behind it in the story. As for how long it's been in-universe since the previous chapter, that will be made clear in the dialogue soon enough. Just don't expect it to be a huge time skip.
Oh hey, we finally get a cover that has Auda as the focus. I think I mistakenly drew Auda a bit bulkier than how I drew her in the cover for volume 3, but oh well. I'll get the hang of this new style as I keep going.
