Isekai Cheat Magician is back with another episode. Things go pretty much as expected.
Taichi and Rin are found out to be incredibly strong by the local chief Magician, Lemiya. Naturally, Taichi’s strength is incredibly to say the least. He is super keen on learning how to wield his power, and Lemiya is quick to explain that if he reaches his full potential, he will be able to single-handedly destroy entire countries. She also makes sure to explain that doing so, he can build his own nation, and indulge in all the riches and women he desires. I’m sure that this is something every woman would encourage him to do. Cause ultimate wealth and sex slaves are fun, and have never hurt anyone. I wonder what demographic this show is targeting.
Later, the characters are having dinner and Lemiya explains how magic works. It is incredibly mundane and nonsensical. The whole world is really actually built on the concept that this is a video game. Character have magic points and a very straightforward system on how to use spirits and spells. I’m not entirely sure what purpose that serves in a non-interactive story. They go on and on talking about how Rin is actually a magician who thanks to her extremely rare skill can use all four natural elements, and Taichi is a sorcerer who just operates in a completely different way all together (????) by not using the power of the elements’ spirits but the spirits themselves. Taichi, after hearing all this information immediately says that’s he’s not interested in government or politics, and that he doesn’t understand any of that. Thankfully, in an unexpected display of rationality, Lemiya explains to him that this is not an appropriate thing to say.
And then starts the training. Taichi doesn’t even bother to change clothes and is exhausted within minutes. Just as he’s about to give up, some spirit shows up and wishes him luck. Myura, on the other hand, is training Rin, who quickly masters everything and is as dedicated as she is polite. She masters her first fire spell immediately, and Myura is impressed. She is even able to go as far as changing her spell to her liking, based on her knowledge of chemistry. Good stuff. In the meantime, Taichi is exhausted. Both of them don’t seem at all concerned that they’ll probably never be able to go back home ever again. With Rin’s support and thanks to that spirit that’s been stalking him, Taichi finally manages to channel his energy. Lemiya rewards him with food, but doesn’t cut him any slack and emphasizes on how much work he still has to do in order to become a sorcerer.
Later, on their own, Lemiya and Myura are discussing the kids’ potential. Lemiya seems to think that there is war coming and wants to train Taichi and Rin to stand their ground as soon as possible, so they can protect themselves, and avoid having their power falling into the wrong hands.
Fast forward to a point where they have successfully trained, and Taichi is killing a wolf. The animation is, of course, abominable, but let’s not linger on that. A bit further, Rin is attacking some innocent bunnies that were minding their own business. Their teachers are proud, and it even seems like Myura is attracted to Rin. After a battle with the demon horse from the previous episode, Taichi and Rin graduate. And get immediately kicked out. They are told that they’ve probably been summoned here by someone and that they should go find that person.
Well yeah. That was a training episode.
I mean nothing unexpected happened. At least the characters now have a target.
