Ah, I like the character chemistry between Chise and Ruth this episode. The two are getting along fast.

I think it's interesting to note that Chise is happy with her current lifestyle. She doesn't want to go to school or whatever since she wants to be with Elias and her new family.

Really thought this episode adapted the character expressions well. Ruth also bought some interesting points about how she may feel for Elias. Interesting to also see a vampire/Leánnan sídhe this episode. It ties back to the theme of love as the story told from the book has some spiritual connection with her.

Sexy design :P

Nice slice of life episode, pretty much nothing happened. Chise get some shopping and some "life" advice from busty lady.

What a cute little romance between old man and vampire (a tsundere vampire).

Also did i mention that music in this anime is great ?

Great episode.

Glad to see Ruth and Chise getting along nicely with each other, I always enjoy Silkie's cute little gestures.

Elias still struggles with the aftermath of the transformation, we still have no details on his transformation and why he's more aggressive in that form.

Interesting encounter with the vampire and the old man she haunts. Loved the part where Joel was able to see the vampire again even if it was just for a brief moment.

Chise wants Elias to open up to her regarding his situation and who he truly is but looks like Elias isn't ready for it.
Back to the dragon land next episode, this should be fun. I love how the little dragon is all grown up now, that final shot of him looked majestic.

Very nice episode this week. Chise hasn't seen Elias around the house due to him trying to control his appearance and while she's out of the house, she meets Angelica and has a chat about her situation. The little relationship between the leanan sidhe and Joel is pretty cute imo. At least Elias tells Chise within time he'll answer more of her questions that she has about him.

Seems like we'll be seeing more of Lindel next week. Very excited for it!

I'm loving the chemistry between Chise and Ruth. They are getting along well. She got some life lessons from Angelica. Elias is struggling with the aftermath of the transformation. The encounter with the vampire and the old man was interesting. Love is not a word that she deserves to say when all she thinks about is herself. She wants Elias to open up to her, but he's not ready. Looks like they're going to the dragons.

The story about the Leanan Sidhe and the old man was nice, though i feel kinda sad for the two since they can't see each other except for very rare ocasions. Looking into the Leanan Sidhe folklore, it seems that the man that they inspire have their lives shortened dramatically, so maybe that's why she doesn't want to use her powers on Joel. Even if he can't see her, she wants to spend as much time as she can with him, and I find very interesting that other supernatural beings apart from Elias seek love, even in humans.

Also, it looks like we might get some glimpses at Elias' backstory next week. Can't wait.

I liked this episode a lot. Ruth is settling in the new environment and his reactions to a few things were pretty funny. His inclusion to the cast/household is welcomed by me. I feel like he adds a bit of personality to the cast. Silky was pretty funny with that sledgehammer when she was waiting by the door.

That was a pretty decent jump scare when Elias revealed himself to Chise in his room. His form is terrifying in my opinion due to his Naga-like body. I absolutely fear Nagas due to how much the lower half of their bodies reminds me of snakes...which is my biggest fear...fuck I even hate that I'm born on the year of the snake.

Chise is getting more and more interesting each episode and her character evolution is pretty neat. She went from being pretty much a mute to being a little more open with her emotions. I didn't expect her to punch a wall after Angelica pointed out a few things.

That vampire chick is an odd one. I didn't expect her to kiss Chise at all but it's understandable considering vampires (leannan sidhe) are presented as sexual beings. Also, was that Saori Hayami voicing her? She sounds like it though she didn't say much this episode.

Started as a breather episode, then we see Chise snapping maybe for the first time? It was an interesting first part, with her introspection. Then as she came back home she got pushed down by Elias..Silky didn't take it well lol.
Ruth is the pefect familiar for her, not to mention it's nice to see him around.

A nice change of pace from the last episode; a needed break from all the intense events whilst still keeping it interesting.

I love Silky, found it funny when she was stood outside the door with a hammer.

The vampire was cool, the design was lewd but I feel like it fit the way vampires are in this universe.

The tsundere vampire was the highlight of the episode, despite how short her screentime was.

I really want to know more about what Elias is. He has been very criptic so far.

A more apt translation for Leanan Sidhe in this context would be probably Succubus rather than vampire which would explain her sexual design and behavior.

That must be very painful for the leanan sidhe.
In love with a man that she cannot manifest to...because it might cost him his life.
Was very funny to see her denying her love for Mr Garland though. Doesn't reduce the bittersweet aspect of it.

From Wiki p about Leanan sidhe..

The Leanhaun Shee (fairy mistress) seeks the love of mortals. If they refuse, she must be their slave; if they consent, they are hers, and can only escape by finding another to take their place. The fairy lives on their life, and they waste away. Death is no escape from her. She is the Gaelic muse, for she gives inspiration to those she persecutes. The Gaelic poets die young, for she is restless, and will not let them remain long on earth—this malignant phantom.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leanan_s%C3%ADdhe


So, essentially, she cannot get into a relationship with Joel...because either way , it won't end well.

Star crossed lovers.

Interesting episode. Chise finally has some developments and realises how dependent she is.
The only thing I dont like about this episode is the chibi art, it just didn't fit the atmosphere at all.

Pretty sure that's Hayami Saori, her voice is so unique that it's hard to get it wrong XD She used an "energetic" voice in the first part so it might be hard to regconise but after that, it was easy as she used her usual "calm" voice.

I love how this episode went out of its way to mention the possibility of Chise leading a normal everyday life, it served as excellent build-up to her emotional breakdown scene and further highlighted just how much of a broken mess of a person she really is.

God i love Chise so much, that's how you do characterisation. The payoff for all those so called "slower episodes" is amazing, and the funny thing is, the best is yet to come.

There's still a lot of mystery surrounding Elias but it looks like next episode should explain some things.

Also, I really liked that moment when the old man and the Leanan Sidhe briefly made eye contact.

Gotta love how diverse this world is! Always meeting new characters and new stories, which are very diverse, and i love it!

I expected Chise to at least be a little surprised when Elias pounced on her. Seeing something that frightening close in on you and you having little reaction to it feels odd...Chise knows it's Elias, but still...

And speaking of reactions, the chibi comedy moments weren't doing any good in this episode.

There are Leanan Sidhes in this world too? I'm actually more interested in the creatures of this world rather than the main characters at the moment...

This was an interesting episode except "you know what/who". I'll rant about that later.
Anyways, Ruth was so cute this episode and now he is fully the OVA!Ruth. Angelica is back! It was nice to see her again. Chise needs a bit of "normal" in her life but I don't think school would be all that helpful yet. She's still adjusting to this new world and country. Forcing her to go to school in a country she's never been to before and then learn english (not sure if she is fluent) and how the school system works and homework, etc. That would be adding way to much on an already stressfully full plate. Though it was nice to see Chise have a normal day out. She is opening up more and having emotional outbursts but I do worry that they might be rushing her progress. She is obviously attached to Elias because he "saved" her, gave her a home and brought new meaning to her life but I hope they don't mean romantic love. To soon for that. Besides, I see it more like how Ruth loves Chise, familial/friendship. It's sweet how Elias is learning emotions by reading Chise's expressions. She use to be so blank, so these changes must be a little exciting and probably one of the highlights of his day.

We now know what was wrong with Elias' back and how much that transformation effected him. He looked so freaken cool though but was he different? Did he look serpentine before? Anyways, his body is so odd. He had a six pack under ribs(?) and were those gills on his ribs? Then he has a feathered mane that has furry hooves attached to it (1 in back & another in front) with long boney but muscular arms and his skull head with added curved boney protrusions. So much going on there. Now for the creepy part, was he going to eat her or maybe it had something to do with her memories? All that drool too, ick. She was so unfazed. Also, that dream. Did her mom really try to choke her or was that because of Elias. Hmmm...I guess we'll eventually find out.

Sigh, now for the rant. Ahem, so the Ass!Fairy turned out to be far far far worse then I originally thought from last episodes preview. She's actually a freaken T&A!Fairy who barely wears clothes that actually fit. For F sake, her tits look like they would fall out if her "bra" wasn't glued on. Her "panties" that looked like it wanted to be a thong didn't even make it past her ass crack. To top it off she drapes herself around the old man like she's freaking scarf. She poses in the most dumbest ways AND she does one of my most hated pet peeves (along with everything else) of forcing kisses on people without consent. Ugh!
They even WANT you to like her and see her cuddling the old man as "cute" but it comes off as ridiculously stupid because you can't take her f'ing seriously, at all. It's frustrating and sad because it could have been a nice scene if she wasn't a walking boner.
Oh and that scene with Angelica where that side view camera pans up Angie's chest to Chise's face. What the F was that? A zoomed out version of that scene wasn't good enough? It wasn't impactful enough? A zoomed in version of Angie's chest is better how?! If this shit keeps up then this shows quality will be dropping fast. Apparently, pandering BS is seemingly more important in a show that doesn't F'ing need it!!!
That whole TnA Fairy story could have been cut/omitted and nothing of value would have been lost. /rant over

I was thinking about that, and I think that Chise's heart is so covered with old scars that she naturally only focuses on that it Is Elias. They took what could have easily been a nightmare-ish scene and turned it into something beautiful, with Chise spending the night with Elias and no hint of anything sexual in it. And then poor Chise waking up alone and with just a note-- C'mon Elias, you have to treat your lady better than that! :)

Pretty good episode. Elias is still reeling from the aftermath of that battle against that white haired sorcerer.

The mystery in this show is dialed up to an 11 because it makes us want to know more about what/who Elias is.

Really nice episode. we could see here that many characters' personality has developed well. Chise started to realize her feelings toward Elias. Angelica really always be that straight-forward type woman. Even without talking, that silky-maid showed us her care to Elias and Chise. And also, Elias seems not that strong, i mean, everyone has their own weakness hasn't it?

Plus.... that slice romance tho. I really want Joel at least, could see and live with that sexy vampire.

really2 nice episode even without magic things.

now, i want to see interest things happen next in the dragon's nest.
