THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well not too shabby Seth. The guy managed to beat up someone his own size and not lose his confidence.

As far as magic goes, there's definitely people stronger than he is so he should watch out. What an ending...!

Honestly, latest episodes were really good, especially the last one. Story is now getting intense and i really want to know how this will end.
A strong 7.5 for this episode imo.

What a fantastic episode. Man they really made a mistake by starting this series with slow comedic filler episodes. It made a lot of people drop this series. I hope the hype continues.

The last two episodes were amazing and if this series can maintain this level of hype, I'm gonna be very very happy

Chapter 26 but chapter 21 to 23 have manga special scenes (discussion between Seth and Piodon) if you want to catch up with the manga

If you want an advice, read the manga since the beginning too. A lot of important scenes of the manga were deleted in the anime, so if you wanna stick with the post Rumble Town chapters, you'd better read the manga since the beginning

The first half got me really hopeful of the chance where Hamelin could travel along with Seth and party but ofc...it had to end on a sad note.
I feel terrible about it *sigh*

This anime is actually great. it took 14 episodes but episode 15 and on have been fantastic. What an ending to that episode, and it looks like Seth is gonna fight Torque based on the preview for next episode, this should be good.

Excellent episode!

Hameline could have joined Seth if she had not sacrificed. :/ I love passing the new ending!

I super love this episode, the BATTLE SCENE, AND THE STORY ON THIS ONE IS GREAT, full of magic and emotional moments between Seth and hameline.

Im just sad that hameline has been killed at the later part...

And well it looks like this one is going to be better as the episode are progressing as for them to use a miracle just to caught seth..... ohhh!!!


Definitely my favorite episode so far...

This series got so good, how unfortunate that so many have dropped it early on because of such a weak start.

Where are the dangers in this series? He's battered up, yet he survives a battle with an experienced sorcerer. It makes the girl look weak as hell cause she doesn't inflict any harm direct harm with her attacks. The wind attacks are basically just harmless gusts of wind cause I didn't see the gusts of wind doing any sort of damage to the characters.

The story definitely got more interesting but everything is just convenient. To be honest, I feel like this series is trying to be like one piece.

It was nice that they made a sacrifice by killing the girl. I hate it when a story makes absolutely no sacrifices. (If the girl is actually alive in the future, then I will probably really hate it.)

It's funny how Seth can't explain why he is saving people that discriminate against him. The characters are just terribly written. All of the people are just "Save me!. . . Now, kill the person that saved me!!" At least let those crowd suffer from cognitive dissonance. Then, we can decide whom we like, and whom we dislike based on the conclusion they reach.

I feel like Grimm's design is subtly changing every episode. I'd rewatch and confirm it, but I really don't want to. lol.

I was planning to drop this if I didn't like this episode as well. Since it wasn't too bad, I guess I won't be dropping it.

Which hype? The series is as dead as it could get, ask the director why he did the filler stuff which aggravated many manga readers and anime onlies who dropped it.

Or why he transformed a mc who was refreshing by his will to not be the best and who don't give a shit about competiton who is also tormented by all the horrors he saw in Rumble Town and who is for the love of god not an umpteenth yeeling dumbass mc into random shonen mc #4385 who want to be the best sorcerer (even if it has not fucking link with the plot) and who is a cliché adorable dumbass mc like Luffy but without all that make luffy good. As you can see, i'm REALLY disapointed and annoyed by the anime and i don't really like it. More to that, they are actually rushing the Rumble Town arc WHICH IS A CANON ARC (they cut the scenes between Pidon and Seth) for putting like 5 shitty fillers episodes, WTF ???

This was a really emotional episode, I love how Seth managed to touch Hameline instead of subjugating her with force. She was killed, but at least in the end she was able to believe in someone else again, to see that the answer she got to wasn't the only one.

But it hurts, as soon as the inquisition appeared the "good" citizens asked them to capture all of those "infected" people, even though three of them were fighting to protect them all along, what Hameline believed completely until she met Seth was pretty accurate after all.

Not really impressed, lots of shouting, crying and cliche Shounen nonsense. You can literally see what's going to happen.

Very few people are still watching at this point, after it finished I expect it will sink without a trace.

Kinda was expecting Hameline to die with a sacrifice as she did, pretty cliché if you tell me. It kinda was cliché for Seth to save her instead of kicking her ass and then the series punished her by giving a noble sacrifice.

Either way this an enjoyable episode even if it had those usual shounen moments.

"Yeah, they're terrible to us and want to kill us, but they need us to protect them from the monsters. If we defeat the source so there are no more monsters and they don't need us anymore, they'll treat us better!"

Flawless logic. What a pile of shit this show is.

Damn, is this really Seth's anime message? the manga speech was more like


Yep, i absolutely quoted a big part of the speech between Hameline and Seth, but it was to show how i find it better written than the anime's speech, if it's really this "Yeah, they're terrible to us and want to kill us, but they need us to protect them from the monsters. If we defeat the source so there are no more monsters and they don't need us anymore, they'll treat us better!" thing like you said. Yeah, like you can see, i (really) don't like the anime, because i find that it really simplifies the manga's message and writing.

so... which side will Seth go now?

He learned about Hameline's story and wanted to become friends.

Only to end in Tragedy cause of the asshole inquisitions.

___ ___ ___

And next episode, he apparently goes mindbreak and awaken his hidden power (like any other shounen MCs) but will most likely get shit on by the inquisitions because we all know the "church" in any series are "all-powerful".

I forsee the Sorcerer country have to randomly step in to save his ass.

That or Grimm also sacrifice himself too to save the MC. Because we all know the series will not kill off the MC, but it WILL kill off any other non-MC related characters.

RIP Hameline. The only serious and, more or less, good written character in the entire show.

The whole fight is very convenient. Seth enduring Hameline's attacks is stupid. The bad guys are no different. Instead of apprehend Seth, they attack Hameline and killed her.

Even Seth's logic makes no sense, the "good" citizens want to capture he sorcerers despite that they saved everyone. They are not different from a generic villain. Yet, Seth thinks that he will change them lmao. Fuck the logic in this shit show.

Hameline finally understood what Seth's path was, and in the end, she technically supported him, and sacrificed herself so he could get away.

It's too bad, because she would've been a great companion. General Torque is the evil that must be stopped.
