Overall, this was a pretty interesting episode. I think the series has a lot more to offer when it talks more about the mechanics of everything. I still think some of the dialogue is a bit out-of-place, but I enjoyed watching the investigation process of what the creator can actually do. Also, I like how the series weaves in the references to the complexity of the real world as compared to a “created” world, like the coffee scene this week, but I would like to see more non-food references.
The big question from here is what is Souta doing? It feels strange that a character with so little contribution and presence in the series is being left alone, with Selesia and Meteora moving out. I guess they’re going to find some new and crazy way to drag him back next week?
Oh look, another new character. The sound effect that horse makes when she pulls the reins sounds a lot like an engine revving up.
Wait, I feel like we skipped a step. When did they figure out that their character descriptions determined what power they had? Did the new guy tell them?
This may be translation error, but I’m not sure I understand this particular part of the conversation. So because he didn’t create the cage of his world, he sees no reason to try and change it? Creator knows best?
Yeah, why not do this? They bring this up in conversation, talk around it for a while, and then go straight into experimentation. You’d expect them to try something at the moment…like trying to have the creator describe a change or something.
Does it really?
I’m guessing this was mostly just a gag, but given that the writer probably doesn’t care and the illustrator clearly has no idea about the stitching, what causes that detail to exist? I’m sure it’s some “the world has a mind of its own” situation, but it feels weird that the illustrator would be surprised by this.
There’s a “the LN is better than the anime” joke in here somewhere…I’m struggling to find it. It’s funny that this is how it works, though.
It brings up an unasked question too. This girl here is the light novel’s illustrator, right? If Selesia comes from the anime, how much power does she have to update Selesia’s character description?
I was going to say that I feel like it’s too early in the series for Selesia to have a line like this, but she’s technically the character from a completed anime, so it makes sense that she recently heard that line.
Wait, what? Since when? Maybe this line should have been “you’re the god of your own world”. That would have made more sense given the conversation.
Okay, that was pretty funny. Man, I never expected a Sawano song to get cut off like that.
There’s a message about readers and writers working together to create a good story in here somewhere. Seems a little heavy-handed.
Hmm, so she was recognizing Souta in particular. It would be too easy if he was her creator, right? It has to be more than that. Also, is she talking to a ghost?
