Damn, this may be the angriest I've ever seen Ruti in this show, not that I blame her though.

She didn't hold back her rage at all this episode. Rit had a bit of trouble this episode, which isn't honestly all that surprising. Episode goes to prove more how insane Ares is though. Only one episode left and I guess maybe they'll go for another action packed finale?

After tonnes of 'slow life' episodes. This episode was doped with those action scenes.
YEAAAHHHH!!!!! FINALLY! FINALLY!! FINALLY!!! Red killed that freaking narcissistic Ares.

Ares is still a scumbag through and through and Shisandan's true objective has finally been completed but I think he just wants to die by that real sword since the hero can't kill him using that replica. Great episode, now we wait for another week to get the final episode, can't wait!
It's not that I dislike this genre but... to add unnecessary fan services to/in/for heroines
and ultimately destroys her character and personality; their purity tarnished because of it,
is the only thing I hope to not happen to them. For that sole purity is my fan service.

Yeah not RIP to Ares, though not Ruti is in "hardcore" mode xD so it can be pretty fun to see a fight against her to save her for the finale, though not gonna lie but I kinda hate it when they're doing action episodes like that, they were doing way better with just slice of life, same for the plot.

This episode was just crazy wow, Ruti's reaction were the best, and Ares' facial expression lol.

Yeah finally we see the demise of Ares and the death of shisandan. But we see Ruti turned rouge and is about to kill her own brother because she touched the sword to kill off Shisandan. Overall, a plot twist, stirs up some good tea for the season finale and a good episode. AND YEAH IDC IM HAPPY ARES DIED HE WAS GETTING ON MY NERVES SINCE THE VERY BEGGINING.

What I don't like about the fight was how Gideon didn't even use the bronze sword to beat Ares. It just seemed kinda important since it was Ares who handed him that sword to prove his point back in episode 1...

Tisse was slashed but we have yet to determine her status at the moment.
Wait, if you're asking what happened to Ruti, rewatch the episode again. It is in this ep 12. lmao

I've got what this episode reminds me.
There is a game where different people draw single piece without seeing each other parts. So result is always some kind of stitched abomination.
Same as this sequence of action scenes and story developments they called episode 12.

Yeah these last few episodes have been a bit off putting for me. The show had a better budget for being a slice of life show. Now its trying to be more of an action/drama show. The fight animation is unfortunately stagnate which holds the series back for me. I'm still enjoying it BTW but not as much as the first few episodes.

This has been a prominent season for cheap mustache twirling villians. We had 2 of the worst examples in Takt OP, and Ares kinda makes both pale in comparisson on how cheap and low you can get. His role and power level has been quite contrived, he appeared to be quite useless and weak during most of the series, but now out of plot contrivances he played the role of the miniboss right before the final encounter with the main one.

At least this Frankenstein of a slow life big boobed waifu mixed with edgy slaughter and double crossing in a medieval/futuristic fantasy setting filled with random magic spells and dragons that come out of nowhere is finally over. Wait, there's one more episode? Just let me off this ride already.

Hmm i wonder does Theodora have a crush on Danan i wonder. Ares though was surely born as a snake who went through life learning how to betray his friends. Theodora's assault was surprising but not completely unexpected given her role as crusader. But she more than anything represents the kind of old fashioned thinking that Ruti and Red are trying to break from. Its just sad that that line of thinking is one that literally forces a young girl to shoulder the role that she never wanted until death claims her. The fight against Ares sure was a close one but the spider really came through. In the end the only reward he got was the one that all traitors get which is a quick death. The next fight in the finale will be the hardest fight ever for Gideon and Rit though thats for sure. RIP Tiesse. That evil inventor though was pure gold as comic relief though.

Probably the first episode where there is no fun but serious mood all around, and this ain't all good...

Ares is such a delusional scumbag who still thinks that Ruti is worth his time living and fighting for, together with Shisandan. And the animation really is just barebones subpar when action gets in the way.

Being trapped in all sides doesn't fare well for the little sister, the apothecary and the waifu, but when Ruti goes serious, the non-Hero wannabe can produce some insane power against their allies who've turned their back on them.

In the end, it all came down to Ares misunderstanding everyone, even down to the grave, and good riddance to his death from Red/Gideon's hands. But Tisse protecting Red from Ruti fully being enveloped in the Demon's Blessing, that was an eerie sight, and hopefully she's able to stay alive.

I'm not the only one who feels like the story/plot never did a whole lot to tune the overall show in its original narrative. Definitely the only weakness of the source material.

I'm with you here. Everything just kind of happens here out of nowhere. Like what were those 2 random dragons that just got killed instantly? What's up with these random betrayals suddenly from characters who barely did anything in the season? I can't get invested into any of this stuff at all when it happens at the speed of light with no real build up.

Like i just want to go back to the Slice of Life part.

The only thing i cared about here was Ares finally getting what he deserved and Danan being cool, but that's it. I don't even care for this final sibling confrontation setup they are going for in the last episode. Just get that done with and give me some nice fluff to end this with please.

Wow I was soo sad when I thought Mr Crawly Wally died(that's his name right?)

And HOLY crap, I was not expecting the Demon to die so easily, but when he got Ruti to hold the sword I was prepared for her to turn bad and end up fighting Gideon but the way they twisted it to have Tisse jump in the way I was BLOWN away. Tisse is definitely the MVP of the episode with this and with the part with the Spider webs. But man I was soo sad, she is SUCH a great character, human being, and friend. I never expected to like her as much as I do now, I really really hope she's not dead.

This was the best episode of the season for me, although I seriously don't understand how that girl who turned on Ruti was able to hang with THE Hero who's like the strongest person in the world. And Rit is definitely a super powerful character and she got reduced to trash and was useless in an instant. I really love her character too and it bummed me out how they did her in this episode, her speech was epic though.

I feel that the moment when Ares stepped on the spidey was the most evil act I've ever seen in an anime. Truly despicable and I'm glad Red took care of the situation.

From a 6 to a 4, they did a great job turning the whole story and happy life of Rit and Red with the Hero fighting for the safety of humanity with other 3 cool mates, into a boring typical nonsense situation with the most basic fighting animation ever.

I couldn't hold myself from laughing sometimes at how mediocre and clichee some scenes were, even though the anime was already a big clichee from the start, it had a slightly wholesome story at least. Such a pity.

Great episode! Ruti was extremely angry this episode. Ares got outsmarted by Mr Crawly Wawly and gets killed by a sword strike from Red. Ruti finally killed Shisandan! Why can't people just let Ruti live how she wants to? Unfortunately, she touched one of the sacred avengers...

Looking forward to the next episode!

This episode took off really quick, even to the point that I was a bit lost on who is on who's side for a bit.

So much action everywhere. Not the best in the animation department, but still enjoyable. Danan surprised me by breaking that demon's swords by just touching them, pretty impressive, even if it almost cost him his life.

FINALLY, that Ares is no more... Killed by Red no less, good riddance. I honestly wanted to have Tisse to go absolutely berserk after Ares stepped on her adorable spider companion. Ruti also killed the demon, but sadly touched the Avenger Sword and now went after Red, but Tisse stepped in just in time.. Please let her survive!!

Ayo, what happened to this slice of life story? I don't really mind too much though.

The story continues so of course the ending is not going to close every plot point there is.
However I do feel like the power of (brotherly) love will bring back the berserk Ruti to her senses.

For Shin No Nakama, this was a pretty good episode. I think Ares' character was stretched a bit too extreme, going from "You're not needed on this team because you're weak" to "Ruti is MINE and only I am worthy to be at her side".

What an episode this was, very action packed, this was pretty much the plot boiling up and exploding in one episode, but I really liked it. Ares was finally dealt with, he was so far gone there was no saving him honestly, and I love that the spider was the one that ultimately did him in lol, and I honestly think Theodora turning for a bit there was silly, that seemed out of nowhere to me, but I’m glad she didn’t die. The production when Ruti was fighting Shisandan was really good too. And sadly, all of Ruti’s progress done on becoming a normal girl was undone with the sword Shisandan planned to have her use. The final episode is gonna be wild. Also there were quite a few nice fanservice shots in this serious episode lol.

And since we’re a week away from the end, I want to say this has been a pretty unique Isekai imo, from the blessing system to the mix of SoL, plot and action, it’s a different one for sure. I would have definitely preferred this to have gone full SoL romance but I am enjoying what we have, at least Rit’s booba has been consistent lol. I do hope the final episode can deliver some nice SoL after the Ruti stuff is dealt with.

The whole thing with blessings, really do be interesting for me. Great episode!

The audacity of this bitch Ares, first the bed, and now, stomping on Mr. Crawly Wawly. Ares got what he deserved, good job Red. Blessings are really fucked though, even a Demon thinks the Almighty is fucked up lmao. So the sage blessings urges is to assist the hero in saving the world no matter the cost. Theodora wanted to make Ruti the hero again, but for a more noble cause, can't really blame her. Ruti is making a selfish decision, but she has the right to do so.

Danan is a real bro though. Also, respect to the drug man, he might be a drug dealer, but he has principles lmao. Mr. Crawly Wawly got stomped, but he pulled through by fucking over Ares.

Ruti vs Shisandan was pretty dope though, I hope they're able to undo Ruti's urges and we get a wholesome happy ending for the last episode.

Anyone else watch the "Iron wall"-cube scene and go wtf? How did Red n Rit get into the elevator? That was weird - I watched it twice and still didn't get what happened...
Surprised, but glad there's another aspect to the crusader - she could've just been another Danon-clone - interesting to see other values and aspects of this world.
Roll on Finale - Hope it's more relaxed - I'm dreading when R&R come back to their shredded bedroom :(

Ares quite strong but crossed too many lines, Crawly not for stepping.
Some great fights esp Danan's gar shoryuken and Ruti vs Shisandan.
Lancer also too stubborn with her god blessing, how she lives with her own blessing fine, but she's forcing Ruti.
Lots of questions with the elve tech, Shisandan's motive why he's restoring the hero blessing etc.

Yeah I think by the next weeks eps they might find some way to bring Ruti back to normal and reestablish the slow life (or maybe I'm just hoping, my favourite part of this anime was the slow life after all).
