I’m having the hardest time figuring out why I enjoy watching this series. I think I just consistently agree with how the episode progresses, rather than making my usual complaints. But anyway, this episode was a nice introduction to Willem’s past as well as setting up Ctholly for her battle. That being said, my main conflict in this series is balancing what I’ve heard about how tragic this series is with how early it is to actually implement the tragedy. The preview for next week’s episode has Willem looking really crestfallen, which would indicate that the death flags in this episode might have some weight. But it’s so early…what am I supposed to think?
What is Willem trying to learn? How likely the girls are to die in battle? Because he’s being pretty nonchalant about it if that’s case.
I guess it’s about time this guy showed off. Although, I kinda get the sense that he’s just saying he doesn’t need to fully activate the sword to use it.
I was curious why Ctholly was so resistant to Willem’s attempts to save her. Other leprechauns have died doing what Ctholly does, so it makes sense that she would be unwilling to accept so easily that they didn’t have to die.
I’m curious what this mock fight accomplishes, though. At the end, it seems mostly like Willem was just trying to gauge Ctholly’s proficiency, but he ends the fight by saying he’s confident that she’s strong enough to complete her mission without self-destructing. Is it just because he told her the theory behind the sword she’s wielding? She didn’t seem to be listening when he mentioned it.
Hmm…I don’t mind this use of the flashback. Willem doesn’t jump straight into telling us what we just saw, but suggests that there’s a link. We quickly establish Willem’s physical state while somewhat building on his past…multi-tasking?
Wait, she’s the one who found Willem? That certainly explains her obsession with him. And this explanation of Willem’s past actually makes sense given that the kids presumably overheard the two talking about his “battle scars” and asked about Willem’s injury.
It’s the little things. This is the same girl who was lagging behind in the earlier scene.
This is new.
Eh, I would agree with this. Both are cases of deciding on something and sticking with it. The terms only really differ on how you feel about the decision you made, whether your settling or affirming. Either way, I was totally expecting this guy to be evil…seems fine so far.
Based on this conversation, it really seems like this kind of “maintenance” is new to Ctholly, but she still seems pretty calm about it. Still, it’s an interesting explanation of how the swords work, with the combination of multiple talismans having drastically different properties than each individual. It’s not unheard of, given what we’ve seen in nature.
Is this the natural progression after someone has asked you to kiss them? I’m surprised that Willem is the one saying this.
She just had to make a promise with Willem about what they would do after the big battle, did she?
