Am I crazy or does this show seem to focus on the weirdest things? For some reason, I remember the chest size battle between Loki and Hestia being shorter and I remember the conversation between Loki and Freya being longer. This adaptation seems to be going through the manga story pretty quickly, which kinda bodes well for me, since it means we’ll get to content I haven’t seen before fairly soon. As a side note, I honestly thought that the “dogeza” thing with Hephaestus and Hestia went much longer in the manga than it did in this anime…maybe because coming up with good ways to localize a conversation about “prostrating” is ridiculously difficult.
Anyway, back to the story. One of the biggest problems I had with this scene involving the escaped monster that attacks Hestia is simple: throughout the entire fight, Hestia is literally holding a knife made by Hephaestus…why not just give it to Bell? Anyway, next week Bell will finally get the knife from Hestia…if I remember correctly, it has some sort of ramping ability suited for Bell’s status as a newbie.
