Episode 6: A Conclusion to This Worthless Fight!
“Why haven’t you visited my castle? You wretched bastard!”
The executive leader of the Demon King Army has appeared at the gate of the town, again, obviously furious.
Megumin confesses that she needs something “big” and “hard” to get satisfied, so, secretively she kept blasting her fire magic at Dullahan’s castle ever since.
The “useless” goddess goes on further and mocks Dullahan, making him roar in palpable rage. A small quarrel quickly turns into a full-on melee between Dullahan and the town’s people.
Dullahan is one of the Demon King’s executive members. His massive power is beyond one’s expectation.
“Foolish beginner adventurers, you shall know the consequences of disobeying the Demon King Army!”
It’s a deadlock. The town faces an unforeseen dire situation.

Review (spoiler alert)
According to Dullahan, even after the last incident, Megumin’s explosive attacks at his castle never stopped, not even a single day. Additionally, he is furious about something else. Nobody cared to visit his castle to rescue Darkness from the death curse that he had cast.
When Aqua scorns him, Dullahan boils in anger. Aqua unleashes her “Undead” magic against Dullahan, who doesn’t look intimidated at all; he declares that amateur traveler’s magic is useless to a high-ranking officer like him. Against his prediction, Aqua’s magic gives quite an impact on Dullahan.
Dullahan staggers at Aqua’s attack, and summons a large number of Undead Knights. Megumin purges them away using her explosion magic.
Watching the power of explosion, Dullahan finally decides to fight on his own. He draws his sword and immediately slashes down five men of the town.
Kazuma quickly realizes that Dullahan’s weak point is water, and rallies all the magic wielders in town to shower Dullahan with “Create Water” magic. Dullahan continues to dodge the showers but eventually, Aqua the goddess of water unleashes her serious water magic at him. A massive flood of water gulps Dullahan and severely weakens his power. Additionally, Kazuma uses his “Steal” magic to rob Dullahan’s head. Without it, Dullahan is next to nothing. In the end, Aqua uses her magic to finish him off.
The next day, Kazuma and the party receive a special bonus reward for having exterminated the executive leader of the Demon King Army. However, the flood created by Aqua has destroyed not only Dullahan but the town structures, too. Compensation for the damage repair cancels off the special bonus, and even worse, Kazuma ends up in carrying a debt to the town’s guild.
I’m sorry for Dullahan, but, he gave to Kazuma’s party members an opportunity to use their skills and shine! For example, Megumin, who is only satisfied with big and hard things, purges all the Undead Knights in one blast, even though she is mocked as “the foolish girl with a weird name.” Darkness fought well with her pervasive mind which dithered Dullahan’s attack. Kazuma’s “Steal” magic and Aqua’s serious power made a very good teamwork.
The real victim of this show is Dullahan. Although he has inflicted no damage to the town and its people, his castle was under explosion attack every single day. Then when he set out to the town to complain, he gets dissed and destroyed. Poor thing. The voice actor did an amazing job, I couldn’t stop laughing! LOL
I wonder if he will come back after getting revived or something.
