Oh yay it’s a battle… what on earth am I gonna write about?
It’s finally time for the final battle, oh thank the lord, it was about damn time. The king’s brother or whatever stands above his unreasonably large army and has some sort of discussion style monologue with the guy with the goatee, talking about how they are going to crush Taichi (they won’t) and how they have a special plan for him (it will fail). On the other side of the warzone, the king is pumping people and Taichi is mentally preparing for the battle. The animation budget is literally close to zero.
While the battle breaks and we get the most basic battle montage of all time, Taichi has some sort of boring flashback, then wears some sort wind monocle provided by Aery (is this new?) and performs a huge jump that allows him to land straight into enemy territory. Somewhere else, the super bad wizard guy is still chatting shit to yet another evil character that nobody cares about.
Back to the battlefield, Rin has to face some barbarian muscular woman who seems… strong? And Myura is being hit on by some lame-ass blonde douche from the enemy troupes. Lemiya is using her magical magic skills to tie people’s hands together… lol. A wizard shows up and challenges her to a battle. The wizard is super cringe. So now, Taichi’s gone off to fight like a man, while his girls are staying behind to engage in petty individual battles with some new character lamos. Taichi infiltrates the enemy grounds and demands a meeting with the king’s brother to offer peace on behalf of the king. His arguments are full of love and fuzzy feelings. He even offers them immunity. The rebel seems interested, but his evil goatee advisor wizard dude inserts himself in the mouths of some soldiers and…? What is that supposed to do?
Meanwhile, Lemiya -naturally- destroys the useless wizard she was fighting and turns him into roast potatoes. Myura is still fighting that blonde wuss and now her sword is on FIRE, how exciting. Please kill him and get it over with? She does. She gets rid of her sword and stabs him in the neck with a dagger. Taichi is trying still. He’s actually arguing with the rebel on whether he should become a dictator or not (it’s still not interesting and I’m just waiting for the creepy wizard to do something). Rebel goes off to another monologue. Aery finally notices the goatee guy has been building zombies the whole time but it’s too late now innit.
Rin is STILL fighting with the barbarian woman who I am guessing is gonna be dying soon? I mean, Myura and Lemiya killed their opponents… Nah, it looks like they’re gonna fight zombies together. The rebel is not impressed by the zombie plan, but by now they’re pretty much everywhere. The guy with a goatee takes a couple of minutes to have his own little monologue and of course, he’s some sort of traitor, oh my god, WHEN WILL THIS EPISODE BE OVER. Oh wait, it is. Bless.
How can somebody make a show where literally, NOTHING, like, NOTHING interesting happens?
