Overview (Story)
When your paths crossed, and there’s trouble, your only choice was to fight together.

Laios’ party has escaped from the Undine, with Marcille injured. The scent of their cooked meal has lured an unknown party, and has appeared before them. They found out that it was their former ally in the party. When their meeting has spawned a lot of quarrels, their only choice was to work together again, in order to defeat the Undine that blocks in their way.

Review time! This is how rivals and friends work together when they take down their one, common enemy!

Meet the tough, buffed girl Namari. She’s a former ally of Laios’ party, after she abandoned them during their battle with the Red Dragon. So then, she meets with Laios’ and others by chance — got attracted by the scent of the meat that Laios’ party are cooking!

I really hate that Gnome man who used Namari as a bait for the Undine, and I thought that Namari died. Of course, he is a creature who is requiring tasks for you to complete, in order to do that task for you. Yep, that’s a principle of give and take!

Speaking of tentacles… Nope, this is not something that you can see from any lewd media that you are seeing. This time, it is now obvious that tentacles are dangerous — even touching them can make you stunned. But hey, I am seeing some weirdness here, like these tentacles can be also turned into something like a peeled banana. Of course, comedy like these would be present, and I was entertained.

Also, the scene where they do battle against the Undine… Yep, and the impossible has been achieved! They had never used the cooking cover handle in order to prevent them from getting their hands burned. But then, it is really a part of the comedy where they did intentionally touch the top sides of the cooking pan cover, and their hands are hurting in burns! I am laughing on that one, though!

It is sad that Laios didn’t do anything this time around on the second part. But then, when he does, he is always ended up in a situation where he is always beaten up (Like those stings in his face). Overall, this Episode is funny and… warm.

Good thing that the plot flow has been resolved at due time, because the scenes execution here can be quite compact and tight. But overall, it is great.

More insights can be found in this Episode, wherein, we should really work together, especially when we face one common enemy.

My Rating: AVERAGE (3.7/5)

Review Rating Summary and Breakdown

Story: (4/5) – Story pacing is just right, making the plot to be resolved in due time.
Animation: (4/5) – Oh, the blood animations are looking three-dimensional here — most likely, they are just shaded gradients or any kind.
Insights: (3/5) – When there are times that your paths crossed for an another time, and there’s trouble, your only choice was to work together. And then, after that, you can settle your arguments later on.
