Overview (Story)
Falin is now a Chimera created by the Mad Mage.

Laios and Shuro argued each other because of the Black Magic used before to revive Falin. Now, setting aside the argument, they must band together for an another time in order to wipe out the Harpies that are attacking them. However, as they battle, Falin has finally appeared before them, who is now a Chimera that was created by the Mad Mage.

Arguing… ehem… Review time!

An argument with fist fights is really a thing when things go in conflict. When it comes to Falin, Laios becomes more indecisive whether to allow his party to kill her or not. Someone like Laios are the people who could make either good or bad decisions. Whether he can make a good one or not, he is still putting the lives of everyone at risk because he doesn’t want someone, who becomes an evil being, to get hurt at all costs.

“Holy Mom… What did they did to you!?”

Falin’s transformation into a Chimera has reminded me of a video game, where a female character dies along with a horde of monsters, while her allies had left her behind. After she died, she was finally revived, but with a different character or trait, which is different from the form she was. Yep, something like Kerrigan from the StarCraft video game series. But for Falin, for instance, she became evil because the Mad Mage had already controlled her mind and soul, turning into a monster who tries to seek revenge and madness.

For Laios, his approach to Falin never changes. But for me, what if that friend or relative who used to be at your side already turned into evil? What are you going to do when he or she will become like that? And for me, this could be a major conflict for this series — a friend who will instantly turn into an enemy.

The other characters in this Episode are pretty weak and useless, thus they are just like being spanked like kids. The thing is, they already did their parts.

And overall, this Episode is really stressful, yet enjoying. I could really see that Falin used to be a friendly and gentle girl, who is now currently the rampaging enemy against Laios and his party. I can’t wait for them to encounter each other again in the future, distant Episode, to see what are the possible outcomes.

My Rating: AVERAGE (3.7/5)

Review Rating Summary and Breakdown

Story: (3/5) – Story and plot progression is just average to good. From arguing to indecisive thoughts of Laios in killing Falin, this has become a major conflict that it has already shown.
Animation: (4/5) – Blood animation and stuff is good. Not recommended for weak-hearted people who doesn’t like blood and fatalities, especially when they were revived after battle.
Insights: (4/5) – What if that best friend of yours, who is good to you before, has turned evil and is turning against you already? What are you going to do? This is what I call, the “face turn”, where people used to be good will turn evil, and vice versa. This type of character development is really the good to best among with the other character development traits of a character in a story.
