Nowhere seems safe in this show.

The Royal Castle pretty much became a battleground for everyone. And really, that cliffhanger is setting up for the series' finale. I'm going to keep my expectations low. I find it hard to get invested into the characters in this war.

Damn there’s really only one more episode to go :/ they’ve got a lot to wrap up in a week.

The fights between Alfred and his father and Adelheid and hers are going to be really emotional. I’m also glad we finally got Val’s motives fleshed out. It makes sense he’d hate the royals so much. He and his mother had to live in poverty while his father lived a lavish and happy life with his family.

Marius abilities as a bearer seem interesting too, I wonder if they’ll be able to explain that. Looking forward to the finale!

We've come to the inevitable: the overdone cliché and bog-standard fare of Kingdom (Hearts) wars (and yes, that is a stupid pun I've made up). There's just no saving grace left for shows like these at the endgame.

Well, glad to see Balthauser's alive and well. But the rest are just asking for trouble at this point, this war will see sides crumble at the seams in the most generic fantasy way possible from the bane and existence of churches' religious practices and leaders whom are "righteous" in their own ways (case in point, the pope).

Trying to achieve a Dr. Stone resolution of no deaths, this battleground is NOT gonna happen like that. Say goodbye to all the side characters (like Nonnoria), and start the final invasion with the repeat of the events from the very beginning.

The battle for the capital continues, and we got even more zombies this time.

Also the Didier indeed can bleed, i see.

So the pope is the bastard child of the former king.

The moment Adelhied said she sensed something, I just knew she'll face her dead father.

Guess we know why the pope wants revenge.

An unexpected turn of events. The dead have risen from their grave to haunt their own children. Wonder how they will handle it.

Marielle is quite cute/pretty when she lets her hair down and drops the tomboy act. However, Adelheid takes the cake for being hot af. Deflotte is of sound mind and judgment for staking his life to protect her (and they're both spear/polearm users!)

Nonnoria is on a whole different league of cuteness on her own...

The pope's backstory reminds me of Serpico's backstory in Berserk. They were both illegimate children of the king/nobility and their mothers tossed aside.

The princess liberation forces had come to an end path after accomplished the goal to reach the capital and sat down it quickly. However, since the Pope and Didier were always be there forever, the church knight still stood and held the grounds completely. This time, its under Captain Georgg order. The battle inside the capital was inevitable, even Didier finally got off his hand to did a little sparring for those young lads. Unfortunately, the fate has been sealed, because the princess already got a buff. Didier retreated with that bad injury, and the church knight obviously got wiped out after then.

Georgg told the reason to protect his best friend, the Pope, and they justified the reason too behind the Pope dark action toward the Hortensian Kingdom. A revenge toward the petty Hortensia king became a sole reason, even the old man Balthauzer, the immortal hero, couldn't save it for real. However, the past was the past, and lets get back to the reality, shall you all?

In short, they decided to sneak the castle from the underground tunnel to lower the casualties. But its actually the another mistake. Alfred did a promise to Nonnoria, that was actually a sign. Even the later situations with Rugis entering the castle from the other side, and the awakening of a certain undeads, made it clear. The end must not be accomplished without making a little sacrifices. Lets see it be done in the next last episode....

The zombies added a more dramatic ending, but how? Like been 7-8 years and the zombies are looking fresh from the grave.

I hope they twins die next episode, doing their great idea.

Damn, there's still a lot of plot points to get through, there's no way they can answer all that in a single episode without it feeling rushed. Unless you know, there's a season 2.

Good episode, now we know what the motivations of the king are. It's all for revenge on the Hortensia family and probably changing the world in his image because injustice for his mother and all that.

Didn't expect zombies of their dads attacking though, one more episode, let's see what happens.

Can't say I am surprised at the zombie dads due to all the magic thrown around everywhere.

Was surprised at how the beginning of the episode started though. Very abrupt.

Didier sure can bleed a lot but his status as a living and breathing human still isn't confirmed.
I bet he's something from the myths, (re)appeared after that one crazy night in Hortensia that started it all.

Ara, the pope actually has personal revenge with Hortensia royal family.

Can't wait to see what those Camellian would do :)

Alfred is even forced to increase the power of his death flag further and further. He might not make it until the victory of the princess.
