Any mages who would wish to enter the Northern Plateau should undergo the First-Class Mage Exam, and Frieren and Fern are the ones who were eligible to take that exam. So then, at least 57 mages are taking this exam, and they will be splitted into teams of three people.
The first part of their test is to catch Stilles — each party is given a cage, and they put a captured Stille in the cage. It seems that not only they have to capture the Stille in order to pass the test, but the test itself becomes a battleground to find out whose party shall survive.
Fern’s Party are battling against Wirbel’s party, in order to save their captured Stille from getting stolen by them. Meanwhile, Frieren’s party are in a pinch, as they were attacked by Denken’s party in order to steal the Stille from them. With the time running out in order to pass the first part of their exam, who would remain in the position to pass?
Let’s go to the first part. Wirbel is really a cool guy here, and he’s powerful. But then, on the other hand, Fern has become more powerful here. But then, I do really know that strength as a powerful mage isn’t only a key here to win. But luck can really turn the tables around, if you are reckless enough. This what happens when Wirbel was focusing only on one target, in which he didn’t see his other enemies coming. Though in the end that they can’t capture anything, Wirbel was lucky enough to get a Stille on their way. Yep, definitely, luck can turn tables around instantly.
It seems that Frieren’s party are in trouble here, as they are facing more than just a powerful mage who uses powerful magic. It seems that I am encountering more dialogues here than action, as I know that they are elaborating something of their past times, etc. But then, because of these, many minutes had been wasted for such topic. And so, I have to wait for an another week to see if Frieren’s party can win a Stille before the time runs out. Hopefully, but Frieren is already more than a hundred-year-old mage who can wield powerful magic as her hobby.
Overall, this Episode, rather than not, is just only average. Basically, I had been encountering more dialogues about elaboration of the topic, while battling each other out. Of course, Fern has really pumped up than ever here!
My Rating: AVERAGE (3/5)
Review Rating Summary and Breakdown
Story: (3/5) – Slow-paced. But then, it gets more exciting to see what’s gonna happen to Frieren’s party from now on. But then, I hope that I won’t lose patience on the next Episode, once it ended in a bad way.
Animation: (3/5) – Just average. But for the other characters like Wirbel, it shows an example on not just to underestimate your luck.
Insights: (3/5) – Sometimes, luck can be at our side. But then, there are times that we are lucky, and sometimes we are not. Therefore, we should not rely on our own strengths alone. It is because, luck is a factor why a mage, who is the same level of strength as in the other mage, sometimes win without expectation.
