So Leona is gathering the remaining leaders to form an alliance against the Dark Army while Dai and his friends are gathering materials for Lon Berks to make a new sword for Dai in Popps hometown. I always knew that the Grand Master was disguised as a ghost because it was similar to how Master Roshi from Dragon Ball would go in as Jackie Chun in the World Martial Art Tournament. Meanwhile, Mystvearn is making a move to attack Papnica.

I doubt these details will have any effect on future episodes

It will, even lots of! especially the case of Lon Berk, below are some examples with spoilers:
> This and this
hinted that Lon Berk is very strong and with these hints, you won't be so surprised when

> This hinted that

...
and do you know why the demon army knew that human are holding a world summit? that's king bengarna's fault
...
The debut of a character is important! Lon Berk, one of the most important character, I can even say he is
but they treat him like a random character in this episode, cut out all his debut brutally lol

I think it was already hinted that Lon Berk is strong since the Larhart battle. And one can think of the possibility that he is a demon so he could side with them or something by themselves, not everything needs to be explicitly said.

Not going to read the spoilers but thanks anyway, but like I said they can always add any kind of necessary scenes later, it's not uncommon in anime.

Regarding "King Bengarna's fault", pretty sure it will be shown in the next episode, you can even see him and his general in the preview so they will probably mention it somewhere

I think until now the anime only has mentioned Lon Berk as a legendary blacksmith, no mention of his power at all. Cutting out all hints above will make fans "wtf? why? how? it's non-sense, he's just a blacksmith!" when he shows his true power lol
If you know the storyline, you will find that it's nearly impossible to add these details later
Anyway, this episode is too rushed! It doesn't deserve a tiny single excuse lol

I agree.
All the scenes that have been cut seems to be not important but they are creating an ambiance.
they did it on purpose so the next episode will finish with a cliffhanger

and the next next episode will be full fight.


But IMO it's a mistake because we loose some subtile deepness.

Maam X Hyunckel will likely be the ending romantic ship anyway so Popp X Merle might happen

Hadlar will give up his immortal body to become the perfect Superior Being eh

And the meeting of the fathers of Popp, And it looks like there really are going to be new enemies going forward with the lost sword must have something interesting behind it all.

Never a dull moment, love these kinds of scenes where a master of a certain trade loses interest but then goes all out to utilize their skills to the limits. Love the jelly feelings as well from Merle.

Behold of my awesomeness~
controversial and/or sensitive topics likely devolve into the same repetitive, derogatory, abusive, and harassing comments can no longer be posted.
But my feels.

Worst episode for me so far because they cut A LOT of things, like other people said. The problem is that they went out of their way to do the "recap" episode, it would have been better making 2 episodes with the missing details
