I thought this is gonna like Seirei Gensuki, where the ending was actually not the ending since there's part two in a few months for SG. But, IT'S ACTUALLY HAVE ONE EPISODE LEFT?
I don't read past Vol 1 of the novel, but I can tell you guys the novel actually quite chill, just like the title says the series is a slow life series. Heck, the anime even skip the story from the demon lord perspective regarding the so called "The War" was a weird to me. Well, unless they include that at the end of episode 13, so that we can get Part 2 or second season for this series, to end this "Blessing" dilemma of [What's a Hero], [What's a Blessing] thing.

There are many things bothering me about what's happening here despite considering it a really good episode.
First off, (and I'll ignore the needless visual antagonization of Ares) wasn't the premise that humanity is endangered by the demon lord, even if Ruti wants to just live a peaceful life, there's no point in even trying if everyone's going to be killed. She says she has to fight for those whose face she has never seen (which I think is in of itself good enough) but she is also defending everyone she cares about by being the hero. Rit's rebuttal to Theodora's beliefs just dissects her simplistic thinking of equating a person to their Blessing, it doesn't speak to the real problem here. The god is foolish for giving the power to someone who doesn't want it? Maybe, but you should still be grateful you have the means to fight back, equating humanity's fate to a single human's wishes is selfish and arbitrary but if that's the stance she wants to take that's fine, what I'm worried about is how the storyline doesn't actually seem to even think about the implications of refusing the Hero's duties and forcing this incoherent idea of not having to follow one's already set "destiny" in a setting where there is quite literally no other choice.

『 The truth has power because it’s the truth.
And because it is the truth, that makes it just.
It’s persuasive, isn’t it? Don’t you want truth like that? 』

this is why i've given up on isekai's because they're all so fucking shit and full of plotholes. that demon literally said she wouldn't awaken the first hero if gideon didn't die but look at her now. and why did the demon even know how to unlock the fucking sacred avenger or whatever. why does this piece of shit show even have an action plot in the first place. this is exactly why i like isekai's with op mc's because there's no unnecessary drama and its just annoying to watch something like this. why the fuck do so many 12 episode shows have to end with some drama boss shitty fight its so fucking stupid and it ruins the entire experience when a slice of life turns into shitty drama. and why the actual fuck did he save that crusader bitch when she literally helped kill him. i hope this series burns in hell fucking stupid retards

Oh snap, this episode was pretty good in terms of fighting stuff. I like the last animation for the fight tho, I dunno about the others tho, they were alright tho at least.

I like the philosophy here too. Although it is just touched upon instead of being expanded into absurdity, it is still something I found noteworthy, I don't see a lot of anime do something similar as such so it is cool that in a "generic isekai" something as such is done.

This thread has some interesting responses tho, makes me think a little about what I saw. Really, this anime is super good.

Why would Shisandan want Ruti to develop the true Hero form? To have his enemy strongest than ever?? :_D This is too messy, some characters switched faction with no valid reason, I would have preferred this to be more SoL and less action packed.

Damn, why are we only getting action from Danan the Tank now :D mf went Hokuto no Ken on Shisandan and Ares with only a left arm.

well... missed the slow life parts esp RedRit dailies XD.
somehow this become more action packed to move the plot. The ruin seems like a Post Apocalyptic sites, this made me even more curious about the background of this, reminding me of Tales of Arises setup.

Somehow Theodora turns against Ruti, some fights happen. Danan spirits was really dope tho, Red & Rit still showed some guts too.

Most satisfying things here is to see Ares get slashed to die by Red. Pretty satisfying by choping his hands first to remove his ability to cast a magic and end his misery with final slash XD. and OFC not forgetting Mrs. Crawly Rawly spotlight in this fight.

It seems demon blessing that affecting Ruti made her became even more stronger at her demon blessing side even though weakening her hero blessing side. Her enraged face as she beat the shit of Shinsandan out was good too, too bad he got a chance to let her hold the cursed weapon and getting her possesed.

As She getting possessed by the sword, she even tried to kill Red and ended up slashing Tisse who protecting Red....that ended up in cliffhanger. I hope she'll be fine :3...

Finally, really Excited for the final episode, can't wait to see it..

Game over, Ares!~ It could've been a lot worse, but I gotta hand it to ya, you failed at your goal and you had enough life in you to see that

Man, action really isn't the strong point of this series. Starting with the lack of impact in Danan's punches at the beginning and then how it was hard to follow the action in the big fight.

That dragon getting randomly beheaded by Ruti's whirlwind was hilarious.

I can't believe it took me until this last couple of episode to realize that Ruti is voiced by Naomi Oozora ha. I guess I needed a couple of episodes where she talked more.

I love how Godwin is a villain with principles haha.

Theodora wtf! I mean, I get her point but it was so sudden.

Danan best bro!

They finally shut Ares' mouth (and removed a pair of hands)! My god that was satisfying, what an insufferable villain.

Tisse nooooooooooooooo

No! Not Tisse!

At least that damn Ares is finally dead.

The episode was intense. Only one episode left.

Stepping on Mr Crawly Wawly definitely raised 'certain death' flag for Ares, glad to see that delusional trash has been put to an end.

1.touch the sword
2.lose Gideon (which she thought she did when ares made room or lift fall )

This episode sucked. Ares is probably one of the most uninspiring and stupidest villains I have seen in anime. Can we go back to Rit and Gideon's romance please?

Danan just punching the shit out of the demon lmao
Godwin being goofy AF trying to help lol

I hate spiders but Ares just smoothing him. Mannnn this guy. Glad he's dead. But it also shows how bad these blessings are combined with the teachings and thoughts of fate and following the paths set for you.
