Shit starts to hit the fan this episode. Margery attempts to pull Silver out from Yuuji gets interrupted by Konoe, and Hecate joins in the fray as well, after retrieving Konoe, her fake vessel. Johann makes an appearance and briefly reunites with Pheles, before disappearing again. At the end of the battle, Pheles sets off for another journey, with a purpose that she can’t tell the rest of the gang.
Wow. I was completely speechless throughout the whole episode and a good 5 minutes after it. It was just that awesome, especially the action scenes. This episode probably had more action than the past 14 episodes combined, not to mention the quality of the fights were so high as well. The production team can really be awesome when they want to be.
With the main plot fully set in to motion here, I sure hope they can sustain this pace for the rest of the series. That being said, Yuuji is being rather useless throughout all this, and I really can’t help but to think of him as the token damsel-of-distress here, lol. Roughly 60% of his lines in the past 3 episodes have consisted of him screaming.
Also, I want a side-story arc or OVA of Pheles and Wilhelmina’s past together. The yuri vibes from them both are just so irresistible, especially since it’s a one-sided love of Wilhelmina there it seems.
