THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Very entertaining episode as usual, I liked the avalanche part and Jil's delusions are quite cool I must say (Fatina with tentacles is a must see !). Semi-serious episodes like this one are far better for a series such as Druaga no To than serious, heroic-fantasy oriented ones I think.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

The avalanche of pressure? Incredibly lame and cheesy gimmick.

I found the episode to be decent altho i didn't like the fact how there wasn't particulary much development. It had a few laughs but to much time was wasted on small talk and such. The next episode looks to be very interesting.

Episodes like this, even though there isn't much plot advancement, are what make this anime so fun to watch. I like that it doesn't have a serious of a tone.

This was a terrible episode. It could have been really funny, but the execution is one of the worst hack jobs I've seen. Including Akikan. Animation was weird. Editing was jerky, pacing totally cut the rhythm for the jokes. I'm really surprised. This episode was just all over the place.

Episode was ok I guess, nothing really to good about it, I just thought Coopa looked hot, damn lolis.
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

Just make sure next time when you walk around, look under your feet. lol.

They used 24's blip sound for the countdown .. haha... and how meruto bribed that business partner with including him as the 132th hero ... that was priceless.

The episode was okay. Some of the jokes in this episode were good, though the countdown and the avalanche of pressure was just lame >.>

Decent episode. Coopa's return was good, but I wish she ditched Melt when she had the chance.

The Sexcretary look can only work with full grown women! With Coopa it just looks... weird....
I wasn't too fond of "obscenely riiich" Melt either. He went from a delightful comic relief to a major dick. Altogether though, I did like the episode.

Meh... I guess it was okay. The first episode was epic and showed how their lives were changed from adventurous climbers to waiters and tour guides. The show is going towards a more comic side but the execution is crappy and cheesy. It's not a bad anime but it could have been thought out a bit more. It's stuck between comedy and action which is a pretty bad combination. Gintama did a great job of that but Druaga seems weak.

The first two episodes were better in my opinion but still pretty good overall. Jil thinking of Fatina and the ropers was pretty good as was the 131 heros explanation.

I see. That alone doesn't make it a reference to one of the greatest movies ever though imho. Still kinda cool.

I loved the comedy in this episode, however Melt just sort of made me mad, really disappointed in him.

Ropers are a blast though.

I mean, they were collecting the dust/dirt in them and litters then off in the courtyard.
But somehow the ropers were obviously showing that they were littering it off in the courtyard other than in the movie where he litters it only through his pants...

Jil's description of how to escape from jail was amusing. I also liked how they spoiled the ending and had a countdown timer, but the avalanche of pressure was a little too cheesy. oh well.
My feelings exactly! ^^

That's the series I was thinking of... I knew there was one hell of a 24 parody somewhere before. Do you remember the episode #?

The avalanche message was annoying, I was even expecting a snowfall avalanche yet..



The old Gilgamesh used to look so heroic, yet he is now a villian.



Next episode is going to be very interesting. Jil will be fighting Druaga again wielding a cheap iron sword while being aided by Fatina and the Silver Knight, as well as Henaro who got dragged into the battle against his/her will. Honestly, I still can't tell whether Henaro is male or female. Looks like a girl but.. Little Kai is powerless.

Edit: I must be exhausted. There is no doubt. Henaro is obviously a girl. Geez..

Druaga now forces WAY too many obvious perverted scenes in. I do like to see them (roper rape, lolz) but seriously, this is just too classic of an example of the growing audience for these kind of things. Sort of sad.

besides that it was still a reasonable episode.
