… Well, that’s ominous.
So I was spot-on when I thought that Leon was probably acting cold purposely towards Milhiore in order to protect her.
First, some context. This week it was revealed that the locals have an advanced form of astrology using mirrors that allow them to divine things and see events from other times and worlds, etc. etc. Turns out Milhiore already chose Shinku before she summoned him, so he wasn’t randomly chosen by a dog that thought he was impressive because he leapt from the 2nd floor. Ah well, it makes more sense now at least.
So… anyways, seems that Leon must possess a strong talent in that field because she apparently managed to divine up that vision of Milhiore dying (or ‘losing her virginity’ as Aroduc calls it) along with Shinku and has been desperately trying to change it… without much success. Irony here is that it seems she’s managing to make it worse too.
If I’m reading this right too, there’s even a 30 day time limit left before it happens and that seems to be driving Leon nuts enough for her to go unseal some really ominous magical weapon and then declare all-out war on the neighbouring countries too.
I hope this means we’ll get to see some real action from her like in episode 2 again. God knows we needed more of that.
Otherwise, this was a pretty slow episode, focusing on Shinku getting used to life in Biscotti etc. etc. Surprisingly enough, Biscotti does seem to have a banner of real, proper knights of their own! I wonder why haven’t seen them in the first episode’s battle…
Oh, and D’Arquien’s chocobo is fucking huge. Like 4x the normal ones. Pretty wtf really.
