Surprise appearance: I thought Asta was going to either get recruited or killed! But HOT DIGGITY DANG, the Wizard King’s surprise appearance completely caught me off-guard!! And it was just the BEST!! At first, I thought he was in league with the enemy because how could he have found out about their secret lair and be there all by himself, right? But the enemies were also surprised! Then he just suddenly vaporized two of them, and captured the rest with minor effort! I yelled so loud!! Finally, seeing THE Wizard King in action, it was so cool, but also super scary!!! The way he looked at them all, his smile never leaving his face, I didn’t want to be in the opposing side’s shoes!! You could really see why he’s the best of the best!
Information: Aha! I had a feeling the enemies who attacked Saussy Village and the ones who ravaged the royal capital were connected! So, which one of them was the Golden Dawn knight we saw back then? And who was the new baddie that appeared? Could he be their big boss? Or maybe even the one who attacked Fuegoleon? It’s a good thing Julius is the one facing this problem now, though we still can’t be too sure!
Themes & Trivia
Time Master: No wonder his surname had the word time in it, as Julius’ magic really is connected with time! I have to wonder though, what does time magic have to do with incinerating your opponents, or switching appearances? I guess we just have to see his coolness some more!
Playing with Syringes: Well, aside from the fact that Sally really did have a huge syringe magic item, her obsession with experimenting on Asta and dissecting him afterward fits this trope quite well! Add to that her looking like a mad scientist, or maybe a crazy sorceress to be more specific?
Man, I thought it couldn’t get any more exciting than the ones we’ve been seeing before. To be honest, my attention was starting to drop during the first half. Then Asta got abducted, making me so scared, and then Julius. Julius happened, and I just went out of my mind! His fight scene wasn’t even much, but they still made it look so badass!! It’s definitely one of the most memorable scenes in this show for me. With that, he just gained a lot more points on my favorites list.
Also, they ended the episode in yet another cliffhanger, but it feels like the most important cliffhanger of all! It just got me even more excited for what’s to come, especially the revelation of who that mysterious new guy is!
Saved by your role model!
A completely new and unknown foe, making sure the minions don’t get away, and keeping your wounded subordinate safe – Julius has a lot on his hands! Let’s hope all these are nothing for the Wizard King!
