Inori-D Station strives to give spoiler-free Episode Reviews and Impressions in this post.
Rein and his party had successfully rescued Runa, Sora’s sister, from the Shadow Knight within the deep lost woods. Not only they had obtained the Shield of Truth, but they also managed to make the fairy sisters to join them finally.
At the time when Rein has completed the quest, he confronted Arios and his Hero Party again. So then, Rein is having second thoughts whether he is going to rejoin back Arios’ party, only to be betrayed again for the second time.
Alright, though it’s late, it’s better to have it published than never! Let’s review with style!
First and mostly, the characters. Especially when it comes to the fairy twin sisters, Sora and Runa, they are really adorable and unseparable! Sora, I think, came from the word “Sol” which means Sun, and Runa means “Moon”, from the word, “Luna”. What a naming convention, though that they are almost sounded alike!
It seems that I am getting foreshadowed with some characters here, in which they have mutual characteristics from some other Anime series that I had seen or watched so far. A brave/kind girl, a tsundere girl, a twin-sister loli-type girls, and… What could be the fourth? I think the fourth one, for me, shall be the cool and gentle type — someone like a girl with big breasts or something, in my opinion! So far, Rein isn’t aware of the girls’ emotions — one after another, he is having interaction most of the time with that girl, and then the other in the other week or time. And that is very common with some harem Anime shows, right?
Limit Break. Let’s go with the story! Seemingly, the story is about 70% dedicated for Episode 7. While the rest, it is just a briefing on what are some things that happened in their previous adventures, just after they had wrapped everything on what has happened during this Episode. It seems that they had literally “fast-forwarded” the action, especially the battle against Shadow Knight. Yeah, basically, Shadow Knight is strong-looking (anti-magic user), but is actually a wimp. They had mentioned the term, “Limit Break”, where it is used when upgrading or enhancing the stats of a character, when he or she is in the peril of danger — usually present in some common RPG games! The 30% of the Episode is just literally “recaps”, to mention again, of some previous Episodes, while revealing Rein’s past here. Actually, they are just foreshadowing us on what’s going to happen next! However, I can’t say anything more about story efficiency, since they had properly ended this Episode without additional conflicts. Something like “Quest Complete”, and then you rest, isn’t it?
And at the end, there is a part there where Rein has encountered Arios and his Hero Party once again. Whenever you are expelled from your group without even thinking that you had done anything wrong, what will you ask in yourself? Basically, what could be something that makes you never be fit to their group anymore? And then, you had finally found and formed your own group, which are really mutual and suitable to your likings. What I have really learned is that it is really important that we should be really in a group of people, while having their interests and favorites, which are almost the same and mutual as us. And to move on is the only way in order to free yourself from doubts and other problems. Sometimes, we can never always go back on something that has let us down before.
