HEH, Nonnoria finally made it into the anime. She was so fond in the game.

A village where children reside, and memories of monsters (which has Marius having flashbacks), that's generally not a good sign.

Saving a kid who ran to the labyrinth of Tron Cavern that houses monsters, that is not good. And really, does it have to be the "damsel in distress" tactic for Alfred to save Nonnoria and Conny. But the werewolf certainly has rekindled the harsh memories of both Alfred and Marius when it had slained the king...and it turns out that the cavern resides a lake that reimagines their worst nightmares, and the werewolf was a fake. One of many myths that stands true in the land of Hortensia.

No wonder it was a memory that could not be forgotten.

so the princess was actually the prince? damn, I knew that he looked like a girl. that "moru" monster thing is annoying asf. We got to see a bit more lore on Magonia, I'm liking Marius/Mariel's character a lot.

Some good old fashioned monster hunting in our fantasy anime. Alfred, Maurice, and Marius going around making sure these newly rampaging monsters don't hurt anyone. Always helps to have some monster bashing in a fantasy setting just to make it more badass. Enjoyed this episode showing not as kuch action as the premiere but more emotional depth with Marius having to deal with the emotions of losing her father to the werewolf and having to reconcile with seeing that shape shifting monster in the cave turn into one. We got some more scenes of back when that happened and Maurice carried her away to safety. I liked seeing those moments of Marius having to cut her hair to assume a new identity in hiding, leaving her brother behind, learning about the pope being a schemer. Her conversations with the main Nonorria were sweet. I like the bond between those two, Nonorria trying to find that boy who ran into the cavern then for Alfred and Marius to come save her. Lot of reconciling with the past in thus episode from both Alfred and Marius.

No the prince is her brother, who is now ruling the kingdom while she is in hiding cuz the hot pope is doing some mumbo jumbo stuff.

This continues to be really, really boring. There's some goblins. Timmy went to the goblin hole. Eek! Goblins. Oh wait, the protagonist is already here. And now, flashbacks. Yes, I'm being more than a little flippant. I'm being extremely flippant. You could make a decent episode out of that sarcastic summary if you bothered to put some effort into the action scene, or made the maid a compelling character instead of a brainless damsel in distress, or the flashbacks weren't just a rehash of the already bland origin story we spent most of last week on.

We do none of those things though, and thus remain firmly Generic Low Effort Fantasy and almost certainly the last look I give this. This is where a little desperation sex might've spiced up the story and characters a little bit instead of being a nakedly transparent attempt to shock and inflame *wink *wink. The jury's still out on whether any of them have gone through puberty at all, and I'm including the 60 year old dude with a beard and children.

Pretty nice episode, things are starting to make sense now with the whole Pope controlling the king. That's why Charlot's eyes look dead as fuck, well probably also because his father is dead and his sister is missing.

Pretty sure Alfred's sister is alive and well. Might even come back as a brainwashed enemy someday.

Dumb kid and Maid got lost and thnx to that they found the cave which creates illusion of the things they hate most. Marius almost drowned but I'm glad she's allright. Also the maid likes Alfred too it seems.

Maid is annoying again. And with MAL listing it only with 12 episodes ... there is not too much hope I guess. Unless they progress a lot faster. I guess another adventuring-type episode was necessary. And it explained the backgrounds of the princess. (Whe she had to hide.)

But the OP showed them like they were living happily in that village. I just fear it might take a lot of episodes until the plot really starts to grow.

Agree, although it might be because I entirely hear Daichi and see Ciel in Alfred.

I'm curious if Alfred genuinely doesn't know that Marius is the princess. The pieces are there; also almost expected them to undress her to find her true identity under the veil of "getting hypothermia". Maybe he's playing along, because like -- it's less complicated that way? I peep that he didn't refer to Marius as family, or to be more careful either although as a reigning lord, maybe it isn't "professional" to be too endearing of your squire. I peep last episode though that he was really worried for her though; and while it's totally normal to not want your allies to die, I'm really split on if he might know her true identity. After all, if his dad protected her then like maybe he wants to honor his legacy of keeping her alive. Shoot idk.

Same she just bolted into the cave to look for the retarded kid who went missing like are you stupid girl, you have no way of defending yourself but you keep believing the main character will always come your aid this is dumb, she knows the main character is out killing monsters what if he has his hands full nah the director 🤔looking kind of bad already im going to see who is in charge of this anime cuz I found these scenes dumb also the main character saved her not even one word of why did you go out on your own its like these characters are all bland no personality at all

Ah, this episode explained my doubt at the previous episode. Thats good. Marius was really an escape princess at disguised, in order to deceived the Pope. Oh, well, Pope manipulation. Idk why, but felt familiar with those plot, and its explained why those Duke and his man decided to retreated as soon as the uprising already reach the conclusion. Pope already found his true puppet.

In the end, Maurice chose Fernando dominion land as his believed safety place. Then, its true, nothing happened again after those incidents, after these current time. But Alfred was such a dumb for not recognising Marius obvious hint as a girl. Lmao. Whatever. Sooner or later, he might've acknowledge it.

This episode also dumped more info about Magonia, the floating island, and its magical lore, whose summoned a dangerous legendary monsters. The reason was still unknown. At least, Nonnoria showed her role to not even be a usual maid. Thats good. Even though i still don't believed its silly saving the kid plot. However, its fine enough to concluded the memories of the former princess, Marius.

What else next? Ah, another new character unlocked!

I'm pleased that I wasn't an idiot for assuming that marius was the princess instantly in ep 1, just the short hair and characters saying she was a guy threw me off for a while. The whole thing around this series is starting to make me think a little bit of the series chain chronicles, just without the magic and the dark king. It's pretty neat though. I'm hoping for some cool legends to start becoming reality. I'm also wondering when he'll learn her identity, since that obviously has to happen at some point.

I assumed right away that he would know it's the princess but would play along, to surprise the audience. If you live together it's impossible not to know.

We got some more backstory on what exactly happened that night when the werewolf attacked the king. All these monsters come out of folk tale and suddenly appeared. The Tron Cavern is the place where more monsters live and that monster which can apparently read your mind and take form of your enemy you hate the most. Marius was also blacking out a lot this episode.

Was hoping the goblins were the rapy kind. Wanted to see the maid get f****d up. Maybe then the anime wouldn't be as boring. Right now this is a 4 or 3/10. Hope it gets better soon, I don't like giving low scores.

This has got to be one of the worst episodes of any anime I've ever seen! It's like wtf?! This entire enterprise is ffucked up beyond words/repair.

Like the maid, the mc the "esquire" the kid, the pet, everything is totally off! One of the worst anime I've seen and I'm only <-> this deep into it!

The mc voice doesn't fit the character, the maid voice actress, argghh please shut the fudge up! That pet thing, wtf is it? And why is it here for? C'mon no one can see what we all can see? You know something about a certain character? C'mon how dumb can you be?

How long can they hide certain things from the rest of the world? Sooner or later certain body parts will develop and pop out and, and ffuck this silly asf anime.

I knew Alfred was going to die, i mean, it would be too stupid if he as weak AF survived. All his oponents were too strong. Animation was ok and storyline was good, its just if there were no magic power this anime it would be a great anime. I guess if there is going to be a Season2, Alfred will finaly be able to fight back, now that he is revived
I dont know about the game that ppl are talking about but didnt like the anime. Everybody think different so this is just my opinion. I finished the anime but it was hard to watch i was thinking to quit at episode 4 or 5 but magane to finish it
