Romance already? We only just got back!
Sigh…I had forgotten about this.
I can’t tell whether the guards behind Pina are embarrassed for her or scared about the earthquakes themselves. In the next scene, we see some more obviously frightened guards, so I really don’t know what this scene is doing.
The king (or translator) is apparently British.
…and Pina is apparently not. Also, Pina is apparently idiom-impaired.
One of these family members is not like the others.
Didn’t hate Zolzal enough already? Let’s make him bring in a slave girl! And if that doesn’t do it, let’s have a scene where he abuses the girl unnecessarily!
What? We weren’t clear enough that this guy should be hated before? Let’s reinforce the idea with one of the characters!
Okay, this scene is super badass and all, but since when did “fire at will” mean “beat them up with your gun”?
I’m pretty sure this entire scene counts as torture…don’t we have rules against that in the modern world? Don’t we have different interrogation techniques? Good thing we established that this prince is super evil, right? That way, no one can really complain.
Ahh, the “bad guy thinks that love is a weakness, but good guy says it’s a strength” cliche. Power of love is strong!
Casual WWII reference? Also, can I make a joke about the usage of the word “bloody” in this line after what the king just said to Pina?
Even the king is facepalming at Pina’s public speaking skills!
Either this bunny girl has some serious psychological issues or she’s secretly manipulating the prince with an even bigger plan.
So not only did the guy she cares about die in the slave mine, but her parents are also dead? This girl doesn’t seem like the kind of character that just gets thrown away when she returns to the normal world. She’s either going to be a future antagonist trying to get revenge against the fantasy world or she’s going to join the military to fight against them.
Once again, this week’s episode felt like it was missing something. It’s too bad that next week’s episode will bring them back to the foreground with Tuka’s story. That being said, I guess I can be glad that they will get her daddy issues out of the way early, right?
Also, if it looks like I might have glossed over the entire scene where Zolzal talks with that other guy about royal succession, it’s because that scene was really boring and I don’t really care what happens to the royal line in this series…
