Hey there guys. Just watched episode seven, and I liked it.
The way it started off kind of made me wonder if a different video was accidentally uploaded for the first few seconds, but in the end I was really glad that they added that flashback scene. It really fleshed out Diablo’s trauma which isn’t really explained all that well in the light novel, in my opinion. It gave a more “tangible” (yes, I know that this is probably the wrong word to use) feel for his trauma with people rather than just saying that he wasn’t used to people.
Then that potion making scene. Gotta love that camera angle from within Shera’s shirt. And the scene was just hilarious as usual. Oh, but I hate how they used “Combiner” as the name for his subclass. It just sounds stupid to me. I prefer my “Compounder”. At least that sounds a bit more like a fantasy job subclass.
It was after the potion making scene that I realized “oh crap, they didn’t include the scene where Kiira was alone with Shera to implant the overwrite magic in the last episode”. I had that feeling the last episode, but I guess I thought that it would still happen later, but forgot that there wasn’t enough time for that. But still, I guess it kind of works without that scene. Would have had a stronger basis for how Shera was affected by the flute, but it kind of works without it if you don’t already know about it. I’ll just think of it as a setup that was replaced with the trauma setup from the beginning of the episode.
That crying scene after Shera left though. It really helps show how Rem and Shera figure out Diablo’s true character in a way that can’t really be described in the light novel.
Kind of wish that they talked about how Diablo felt that a mind controlling item couldn’t exist, but I guess it wasn’t all that important anyway.
As for the slime scene, it wasn’t all that erotic. I mean, sure, it’s pretty much a rape scene, but still, the tentacles could have at least tried to make it a bit sexier. Maybe some more close ups as it climbed up. Oh, and unrelated to sexiness, I only thought about it now, but where did her extra clothes come from after this? I mean, her clothes were a super rare item right? I didn’t think about it before but do they have an auto-repair feature? It’s been a while and I tend to forget things, so maybe they do. But meh, an unimportant thought I guess.
I really like how they dramatized the order/confession scene. I love how it displayed a sort of fight between the power of the collar and the power of the flute.
Finally, the Force Dragon kind of looks stupid in my opinion. No particular reason. Just think it kind of looks stupid. It might be that their necks are way to thick for my taste in comparison to their heads.
Oh well, those were my impressions. It was a good episode in my book.
Now then, onto the chapter parts. Today’s donation part is thanks to Ryo (overflow from last time), moff starfox, Joseph, and William. Thank you very much for the donations. And with that, I am all caught up with the donations. Also, with these two parts, that is it for chapter 3. Up next is an interlude. But for now, I hope you enjoy the rest of chapter 3.
