Junketsu no Maria Episode 5: Duel

[HorribleSubs] Maria the Virgin Witch - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.09_[2015.02.11_06.42.25]

I’m not actually too sure what I was supposed to get from this week’s episode. It seemed like a simple case of an affair…I guess the only question I would have is why the church is the one to decide that a duel is sufficient to settle the matter. There’s also the matter of why the church didn’t care about the deathblow that the knight was trying to make, but was pretty quick to stop Galfa from beating the knight with his sword (after having already taken his own beating).

There’s also a bit of irony in the fact that the church tried to stop the fight to save the knight, which would eventually condemn him if my memory about the Christian god and his view on suicide are correct. Maybe the duel’s point was to make Maria start questioning herself? Or maybe just to get Joseph and Maria closer to each other? They look like they’ll be spending some more quality time together next week. It really is starting to look like Maria will abandon her powers for love…
