I really don’t remember this battle being quite this dramatic when I was proofreading it in the manga. Anyway, this week’s episode introduces us to just how overpowered Bell is as a character. Even if he has hyper scaling, this level of growth just seemed insane to me. I didn’t really get far enough in the manga to figure out whether this ends up being a problem. I did have one key problem with the knife, though. It was introduced as a weapon that grows with the user, so it should have theoretically started out pretty weak. I guess the argument is that the status update in battle gave it the initial stats, but doesn’t that just seem too thin and convenient?
Anyway, next week’s episode introduces the concept of the supporter in the dungeon. It’s also the point where I stopped proofreading for the manga (it wasn’t the manga content’s fault…I just got tired of doing it). Something I’d be interested to see in the coming episodes is the concept of a main enemy for Bell. I honestly don’t think Freya counts yet. Where is the final boss for this series? If there isn’t one, the show honestly just becomes harem building, which is infinitely less entertaining. I guess we’ll see.
