Their only weapon: Asta’s influence is astounding! Not only did he impress Vanessa, but his determination also changed the mind of the cowardly Finral. That says a lot, doesn’t it? Thanks to that, we got to see them apply some awesome tactics: using the power of teamwork and speed to outmaneuver your enemy! What’s even more amazing was the nimble skill that Vanessa and Finral both had in using their magic! I mean, just one misstep, one wrong timing, and it could be lethal for Asta! His senpai are literally supporting him this time, and I couldn’t be more moved with this arrangement. They even successfully injured Vetto! Though the damage wasn’t enough to defeat him, that’s still something! I’m just a bit worried on how long they can keep it up, and how they plan on taking it up a notch.
Themes & Trivia
Mosquito Hum: The buzzing sound that a mosquito makes is very annoying, isn’t it? Especially when they’re close to your ear, but you can’t seem to catch them! No wonder Vanessa had a hard time concentrating and felt like she was going to go crazy. How does a mosquito make that buzzing noise, though? It’s actually the sound that their wings make when they fly! Since they’re very small, they need to fly very fast, so they beat their wings 300 to 600 times per second.
We’re only getting started on the next phase of this battle, and I honestly have no idea how this is gonna go about. What I do hope is that Vanessa and Finral won’t end up like Luck, Magna, Kahono, Kiato, and Gio. That body count should be enough, right? I’m also hoping Yami and the High Priest still manage to get out of their ‘prison’ and teach that cocky spatial magician a lesson! It might make the fight easier, sure, but I just really want to see them all team up against Vetto.
It’s time for a counterattack!
Three powerful mages vs. one berserk beast. Hope vs. despair. Who will win? Anything can happen for sure, and that’s just really worrying. But! We’re on the side of hope, aren’t we? So let’s keep hoping that there’ll be good twists incoming!
