While Yukio’s fight this week was a bit strange, Rin’s initial battle against the Impure King with his powers unlocked was pretty cool, even if he was mostly on the defensive. For all of that buildup, the fight against the Impure King ended without too much fanfare. I was honestly expecting more out of that fight. I also wasn’t expecting the fight to be over in this episode. I wonder how they’re going to end this season. The preview makes it look like we’ll get some sort of quiet epilogue episode.
Dude, you had one job.
Apparently, this bad guy is impeded by both fire and water. Make up your mind, buddy.
There’s a point where you overdo the “mysterious observer” role and I think Mephisto passed it long ago.
Just die already, man. I know I’m asking too much, but come on…
This might not necessarily be an incorrect translation, but it was very confusing for me. It sounds like Ucchusma is offering to help Rin in the future, but it looks more like an offer in the present based on the events that follow. Not that I have a problem with Ucchusma working with Rin to fight the Impure King…it’s just that I thought the way the offer sounded was weird.
Going straight from “you just need to work on your confidence” to “you need to bathe the entire mountain in your flames without hurting anyone” seems a bit much, don’t you think?
Meanwhile, on the other side of the mountain, this is happening. Giant Nee turned out to be a bit of a letdown.
Aww, they’re friends now. Remember when they needed to rescue Suguro’s dad? Because I didn’t until right about now.
On the bright side, none of Rin’s friends were there to yell at him. But still, this is power of friendship and really makes me wonder why those lines are only just now helping him with his confidence issue.
Hey, Mephisto. This whole “maniacal laughter” thing you’re doing. Not helping.
Aaaaaand classic Yukio.
