Overview (Story)
They are almost near to the Red Dragon.

Laios and others are reaching finally to the fifth floor of the dungeon. But then, as they pass through, they encountered a lot of obstacles along the way, which would include tentacles and giant frogs. They were able to traverse them at the end. Finally, they had reached the deeper floor of the dungeon, wherein they are in an underground abandoned town. It is about time that they had prepared themselves to battle the Red Dragon, by just making plans, had eaten a good meal, and had their motivations boosted.

Review time! Are they finally meeting with the Red Dragon again?

Seemingly, it has reminded me of an RPG game, where you will, before fighting a boss, have to pass through with many traps and obstacles, that can block or damage you before you can reach the boss. The tentacles and frogs can be eaten, as usual, by our heroes. I would never know that these frog skins can be used to shield against those moving tentacles!

The mid-part of the Episode is basically an another set of cast where they had talked about on their experiences within the dungeon, as well as centering with Namari a bit. This part is somehow redundant, but relevant to the plot, somehow.

The first part of the Episode seemed to be boring from the start, but it gets exciting when it has finally reached the last part (after the talking part with Namari and other parties). This is really where they planned on how to get to fight and defeat the Red Dragon. But of course, they need some preparations to do it, though!

Overall, this Episode is kind of average to me. Maybe it is because of that redundant plot? But then, I do really like the part where they had used the giant frog skin as their hoodies to avoid the tentacles along the way!

My Rating: AVERAGE (3/5)

Review Rating Summary and Breakdown

Story: (3/5) – Story plot is just right, but there is on a middle part of the Episode where there’s a redundant plot — where it is somehow relevant to the plot, after all.
Animation: (3/5) – Just average. No changes in character development here.
Insights: (3/5) – Not much to learn. But then, on every boss encounters (or problems), we should be preparing ourselves for the coming conflict. It can be done by either celebrations, or anything joyful — something like the calm before the storm, that is!
