Overview (Story)
When you do a solo decision, the greatest damage is the loss of trust from your friends.

Laios’ party has finally encountered the Red Dragon, and they were ready to fight it. Fighting it only gives them several dangers and wounds. Somehow, their efforts had defeated the Red Dragon, and they should need to get Falin out from it.

Laios found out that Falin is dead, and her bones only left covered with blood. Resurrection can be the only way, but will it be just enough to save her completely?

Okay, Review time.

To make it more exciting, I just reviewed two Episodes in one post, so that I won’t fall short in my words again.

In the 11th Episode, it really shows on how did the party do their efforts in defeating the Red Dragon by figuring out its weakness. Basically, Laios had really cut himself with his leg in order to defeat it by just exploiting the Red Dragon’s weakness. And I was really shocked at the end that somehow, they didn’t save Falin here on time. Well, I do really expected that from the beginning.

My thoughts of it is that it really surprised me that no matter what efforts you had made, it will just make you sad at the end when nobody tries to notice you at first — in the sense that it will just fail or flop. So then, it is really a sense that simply doing your best is just really not enough.

In the 12th Episode, a failure has resulted when they were really late. But then, they had really tried their best. In the line of fiction, some miracles do really happen. At the time that you have really lost, there is something that would eventually happen in order to make the tables to turn around. This is what happened when Marcille attempted to use this “forbidden” method of reviving Falin from the bones. But then, this resurrecting method, I believe, can be done only on fiction — just like eating those fictitious dungeon food!

Chilchuck’s a good drinker, ya know?

My thoughts really in that Episode is that my feelings are bit mixed. Somehow, bad things might happen on the next Episode, as an another character is being foreshadowed here at the end. But then, I had learned something here as an insight! And when you read that quote before the Story Overview, that’s the insight!

Overall, the two Episodes here can be both exciting and… heartbreaking. But when you watch them separately (as in waiting for a week for the other to come out), the first can be heartbreaking, while the other is joyful. And judging it by rating, it’s just right and good.

My Rating: GOOD (4/5)

Review Rating Summary and Breakdown

Story: (4/5) – Like I said, the two Episodes can be both heartbreaking and joyful. Watching them separately makes you feel incomplete.
Animation: (4/5) – Blood animation is basically deep-red, which is totally the typical true color of a human blood. Of course, the Red Dragon color is basically lighter in red. Blood animation is not really good for people who are sensitive in fatality animations, like piercing the eye of the Red Dragon.
Insights: (4/5) – If you go solo, make sure that you can make right decisions. Basically, going alone without others finding out is really a great damage to your trust rating.
