I’m not sure why it was necessary to have so much standing and talking when wyverns are attacking the town, but I guess the children needed to get some background story. On Touya’s side, I wasn’t too surprised how the Odyssey Knights turned out given their initial appearance. I guess death is their own personal drug…always a fun subject.
I’d say the most interesting part was this business with the train, which looks to be the focus of next week’s episode. It seems the focus will shift off the children to Nyanta as he confronts the people on this train. So they’re using an adventurer to summon creatures to house the minds of People of the Land? Based on the way they reacted when Nyanta attacked, are these Nightshades different from the ones that attacked the cathedral at the town? I have no problem with the concept of power leveling, but what is the gain for anyone that’s not the summoner? Seems like a lot of work.
