There is a third episode. That alone is pretty mind-blowing.
Beautiful fields of lush green grass are laid before Taichi. That little childish voice he keeps hearing is echoing in his ears. He is obviously dreaming. He wakes up in his sweaty bed, now a full-blown adventurer paying for his stay at an inn. During a completely inanimate flashback, we are being told that Rin and himself have registered as adventurers and are now performing minor tasks to earn their living.
As they’re having breakfast, Rin keeps learning about the ways of this new world they’ve found themselves in; most information is about how magical everything and everyone is. The waitress comes to the table to bring Taichi’s breakfast and informs the two of them that they’ve been summoned to the guild. Once there, the dwarf that is their master asks them to complete a quest: spying on the bartender at some bar in the local slums. Apparently, stolen goods seems to be going that way and the guild needs to investigate. His face doesn’t move an inch during the whole conversation. Rin notices that the quest has failed twice, and they have a completely pointless conversation on what class of what heroes is able to take up quests. It is so uninteresting. The two of them accept. As they’re walking down the street discussing things that are not important, Rin runs off to buy some fruit, only to find out that they are ridiculously expensive. An ominous music plays in the background, signaling how important the price of fruit is. I’m not feeling it. The grocer explains that there are no goods being delivered to this town as of late, probably because the merchants bringing them in are being attacked by monsters before the get there safe. That may be a WILD guess, but it seems like this has something to do with Taichi and Rin’s quest. Just a hint. As a sign of genius, the two of them seem to be aware of this.
At night, the two of them enter the bar with more confidence that they should have had. Instead of spying, they try to lure the culprits in by offering them money for any good. That instead, leads to a fight, which they easily win. The people who attacked them seems very keen on spilling the beans, so I’m not sure why this quest was considered so difficult by the guild. They just had to beat up a couple of drunk people, and it didn’t even need to be animated. Instead, we got a shot of a cat screaming in an alleyway.
The barman promptly kicks them out and refuses their money. As they swallow their defeat, they hear wolves screaming nearby and think that this is probably related to their quest. As they run towards the screaming, they face with three very obviously female warriors, who don’t seem very friendly. Despite the fact that they’re complete noobs, they manage to kick a couple of them out. Taichi apologizes to his opponents then kicks the shit out of them. What a gentleman. Two of the assassins escape, but they manage to capture one of them. They take her straight to the guild, where she is imprisoned, but none thinks of having her mask removed (lol).
The next morning, Myura shows up. She seems well informed on what’s been going on, and asks them to form a party to go north of town and harvest some melila fruits to feed the town. Once there, they meet some random farmers and a standard-white-haired anime guy that is obviously somehow not a farmer. As they’re climbing the mountains being shown how melilas are grown, Rin’s staff starts shining. Someone is coming. And he looks really really hairy. It’s an OGRE! And it has all sorts of mini monsters with it as well. Taichi, shining with big dick energy, tells Myura to take on the small monsters, while he deals with the ogre. Myura obeys without questioning, even though she’s obviously a lot more experienced that the two kids she’s dragging around with her. She easily takes the monsters out and Taichi is left to jump around the ogre. He easily wins. I don’t think I can deal with so much suspense. Ogres are not supposed to be wondering about fruit plantations, so Myura seems certain that something is up.
In the meantime, some psycho we’re going to see in the next episode is killing more helpless bunnies in the woods.
Too much excitement
I would say I can’t wait to see what happens in the next episode, but that would be a lie.
