Chise turning into a bear was rather unexpected, shes has grown so much since I last remembered, and I presume Ashen eye is more of a sprite or a mage since he finds the magical flowers 'tasty'.

I want an arc focusing on old gods. They are more interesting than elias and chise. ;)


Finally someone said it. Honestly, the only reason I'm following this series is for the world and for Ruth and the other characters. Chise and Elias just pale in comparison.

Plotwise was mildly interesting, some awkward moments in practice, maybe a bit rushed

At about 19:22 when Elias comes out of the water it shows Chise with no leggings on, but in the many other scenes she's wearing black leggings *slightly triggggereddd*&@1312

That possession thing was weird.

I wonder what kind of reaction Chise had at the end there.

Being the only one who remembers his own relative is very scarry and terrifying. The moment when the girl's parents didn't even remembered they have a younger son did creeped me out... I'm glad the girl have her brother back in the end and everything went back to normal :) The sand guy is one troublesome fella, huh >_>;

Cute episode, albeit a little weak imo X)

I always get creeped out whenever someone's memory is distorted and the person's name gets a muffled censor or their face is blurred. Creepy af D: Happens all the time in movies lol *shudders*

Ashen Eye is so mischievous, but in the end, he isn't really doing any harm (so far). He's more of a trololololol type of character, haha xD

That part where Elias possessed Chise to make a bargain with the little girl was so creepy, it's sad that Chise doesn't have the self-confidence to complain (or even comment) about something like that happening to her

Goro kidnapped Ethan
So this episode it's Elias who's under water instead of Chise
Elias's voice doesn't match white hair Chise
Can Chise transform into any animal now? She has a fox skin but turned into a bear?

Ehh, did she turn into a bear and not a fox like last time for some particular reason? Do bears track better?

This self-contained episode is excellent, although this context presented in the plot does not last very long, there are many benefits: it is not a long story, and the story takes a step forward, like the interpersonal bond between Chise and Elias, which now represents the fulcrum of the whole history of the anime. Drawings, backgrounds and animations, excellent. The characters are the icing on the cake this time too, since it is thanks to them that the episode works great.

I never trusted that Ashen Eye dude, his voice alone spells trouble. Didn't know Chise could turn into a bear, I thought only into a fox.

Hmm this really adds more thoughts into your head. But yeah family is important for more than just one thing or another.

I really want to know more about Ashen Eye.. More of a mystery than our bone dady 2.0 Elias.

Behold of my awesomeness~

That Ashen Eye is such a troll on god. Felt a bit like a filler episode but that doesn't mean that it's not good, I had a nice time watching it. Those crystals that were produced by the teddy bear Elias gave Chise for Christmas were not only cute but pretty damn functional too when it counts with basic little things, like negotiating when you need assistance on the move. Glad Chise was able to help Stella and hopefully get some great sweets in the future, and Elias' Chise face was great when he was stuck with Stella's little brother, Ethan.

I don't know why but this ep felt weak and not as good as the previous episodes... however I really like the moral of this ep, words are very powerful indeed so we should always be careful and think before we speak.

Elias in his Chise form looked so cool, especially since he made it look like the white-haired version of her (while the real Chise has red hair.. ice and fire).

I guess the past couple of episodes have been using side stories to indirectly probe deeper into Elias and Chise's relationship: an exploration of forbidden love between Joel and the vampire-like fairy, the bonds between master and apprentice with Renfred and Alice, and most recently, what it means to be a family with Stella and Ethan in this episode.

I don't think the episode was that well done.

Why did Chise have to turn into a bear to track the scent of Elias, when she has a fairy dog right beside her?

And Ashen Eye just uses made up rules. Of course, he can do so because he is powerful, but that's all there is to it. If it where real rules of the fairy world or whatever, Stella would have gone back to her parents, they'd asked "where's your brother?" and she'd be the one confused. She is the one who broke the bond, her parents very much wanted to keep their children. Them being affected and her even remembering her brothers name until after he conventially explained that her forgetting him is the consequence of her choice of words does not fit his explanation. So the whole point of "be careful what you wish for" is moot.

Furthermore, Ethan said "i don't need a nagging older sister" or something like that. He did not wish for her to go away. And even if he did, it was about a nagging older sister, not her in general. I think if you want to play with words, you have to do it right, not just randomly count something, and others not to fit a certain outcome. And real rules would have consequences for Ashen Eyes, too.

I think It's all just made up on the spot by him, because he actually hopes to get something out of it. He'd prefer to get Chise away from Elias, he'd liked to keep Ethan etc. It's not that important to him, and he's got all the time in the world anyways, and actually fighting Elias and maybe other mages would interfere with him having fun along the way, so he poses it "just a little trolling", but that's just a cop out after the fact.
