Halfway through the episode I got to wondering, why do these soldiers think they can fight Naofumi? It’s actually comical. They have swords, while he has a mystical weapon. Like when the guy pulled out a whip, like he was about to fight them. I don’t think they understand just how strong Naofumi is yet. I keep hoping he will finally show the world his strength.
Other than that, it was a so-so episode. The most important thing is Raphtalia confronting her fears and overcoming her past. This will be good character development for her and will allow her to grow. I want her to kill the guy, but this is anime. I know, and you know, that she will let him live.
