The seventh episode of DanMachi was wonderful to watch. It explained a lot and plenty of interesting events took place. The story is moving forward and I’m hoping for a phenomenal arc, full of twists and revelations. Allow me to elaborate more about the recent happenings!
Everything happened as it should: Hestia is scolding Bell for visiting City Of Lust, attempting to learn if her baby boy is still pure. Sadly, that’s pretty much all we’ll see of her in this episode and I have to admit that I miss her bubbling personality. Can’t wait to see her in action again! Meanwhile, Ishtar is getting even scarier and decides to send her elite team in order to… pick up Bell in the Dungeon. We finally get to learn Haruhime’s secret ability and I’m quite impressed with it. I’m curious to see its effects on monstrous Phryne!
Once again, Bell tries to avoid trouble but fails, since emotionally unstable people always have a thing for him… Poor thing!
Phryne: This frog is here to stay and haunt my dreams… I honestly find it unbearable to look at her and hear her ‘Ka ka’ laugh. Hope poor Bell doesn’t end up in her hands…
Syr: Syr has to receive a medal for being the most badass girl in the series. This cute waitress terrified a God only by looking at him and smiling.
Themes & Trivia
Freya & Syr: Freya, in Norse mythology, Freyja is a goddess associated with war, death, love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, and seiðr. Freyja is the owner of the necklace Brísingamen, rides a chariot pulled by two cats, is accompanied by the boar Hildisvíni, and possesses a cloak of falcon feathers. She had plenty of different names, such as Gefn, Mardöll, Thröng, Valfreyja, Skjálf, and Sýr. Yeap, Sýr! My mind just blown and I can’t wait to see the kawaii waitress’s and the provocative Goddess’s connection…
This arc is more dark and alluring than the previous one. Considering Ishtar’s influence to… well, almost everything. It’s hard to imagine how Bell will make it out of this dangerous, uncomfortable situation. Moving forward though, I enjoyed this episode’s pace, since it was smooth and exactly as it should have been. Everything was unambiguous and I’ve always been a fan of touching flashbacks. I am crossing my fingers for the rest of the adaptation to maintain the same quality, both in visuals and writing! Though I would like to learn more about the two opponent Goddesses, since half of the fun is knowing how terrifying the villain is.
‘She was so pure…’
What is your opinion on Ishtar’s actions? I’m curious to see if she’ll be able to make it out -almost- clear once again. Can’t wait to read your comments here, in MANGA.TOKYO!
