Inori-D Station strives to give spoiler-free Episode Reviews and Impressions in this post.
Rein and his party have completed a lot of quests, and getting stronger at the same time. Tania suggested him to get a nice, powerful weapons and equipment. They visited a weaponry shop, and they met an old blacksmith named Gantz. Rein wanted to get a powerful weapon from him, and he asked him to make one. However, Gantz told them that he has run out of refinery materials for weapon making, especially the mithril ore which is usually used. So, Gantz wanted Rein to check out on what’s happening on the mine caves — about on how did these mithril ores disappear instantly.
And so, they had accepted the quest, and they went to the mine caves to investigate and search.
Review time! Oh, and that minified censorship while taking bath!
It looks like the girls did their showoff here, without having their identities revealed. And look! Along the way, there is an extra scene where they had done the “usual thing” which is princial in most Anime — bathing in onsen or lakes, or other equivalent! Of course, the occasional “peeping tom” shall never be left behind at the end.
Someone like Gantz the old blacksmith? Anyway, they were somehow always present in almost any kinds of RPG games or series ever. You know, talking about older men, they were usually the “specialists” when it comes to any arsenal or whatsoever kinds of equipment ever. They were not just specialists, but I literally call them as “veterans” in making weapons. So then, they were usually short and has some while long beards. Reminded me of some other video games where older men are usually rescued from those baddies. Yep, they had benefits, too, aside from just being a minor or extra character. So then, I am just thinking that Gantz might be just a reference from a certain video game character that has the same style and elements as being an old blacksmith — something like a Viking wearing helmets without any horns?
And I am just having some thoughts and impression with the fairy sisters, Sora and Runa. Runa is just being loud here and bossy, while Sora is being shy, or otherwise being the opposite. Whose the sister, for me, is the best? I can call them equal, but for me, I want the calm and shy, who is Sora. And then, Rein is very unaware on what’s really happening, especially when he approaches the girls. And some laughing here, the children call the sisters as “wives” of Rein here. I don’t know why, but I am really liking Sora more here than Runa, as twins.
Story, as mentioned in my previous Episode Reviews of this series, is just like playing an RPG genre video game. And the fact that Rein wanted to accept the quest from the blacksmith is basically he is brave, and he never hesitates. Also, it shows that how important is to have help from somebody, without involving any monetary transactions. Of course, we are born equal and the same.
I have learned that we can be strong in all situations. But then, what thing should we need in order to control or to traverse our limitless strength? We have our attacks maxed out, but there is something indeed missing! The answer is that we must need some equipment where we need some defense, in order to withstand the attacks of our enemies!
Also, to learn something, we can always help people or somebody whenever we can. Are we willing enough to accept the request of a person who needs something? Of course, we would never reject it, and we know that there is a reward that awaits us when we completed it!
My Rating for this Episode: AVERAGE (3.5/5)
