Maybe it was just me, but I was surprised that this episode didn’t really feel like much. This should be the point where the story ramps up, but a lot of the scenes felt wasted and the dialogue was a bit confusing at times (I’ll be more specific below). Also, Zero and Thirteen are supposed to be legendary-tier witches and their battle was just the two of them yelling at each other and crossing streams. Still, it’s nice to finally learn more about the world and feel like the series is actually going somewhere, so I can’t completely discredit this episode.
Now that I think about it, this is really the first time magic in this world has been explained since Zero talked about the difference between magic and sorcery.
Given Mercenary’s heavy prejudice against witches, I’m surprised that this is the first we’re hearing about rogue witches.
Wait, I’m lost. Did the looters steal the magic from the rogue witches by taking the jewels on their collars? Is that what Zero was referring to earlier? Or did the man walking through town do it? It looked like he was disintegrating them, so it doesn’t seem the same.
I actually don’t mind the necklace from that little girl coming into play here. It’s a nice touch. Plus, the dog has been pretty cool so far, so I like giving it a good ending.
Oh, I forgot that they’re looking for that. I guess I just didn’t expect it to be here anyway.
Albus just became their leader? That was…random.
I mean…I probably could have guessed that from the fact that the rogue witches didn’t get disintegrated. The problem is that the episode hasn’t really done anything so far to convince me that the Sorcerors of Zero weren’t the ones that killed the rogue witches. It would have been as simple as saying “the Sorcerors of Zero would never take away a witch’s magic” and I would have been fine with it.
Nice entrance, buddy.
Maybe I’m just being picky, but this scene didn’t really feel like a flashback for a while.
So wait…does this guy just overly worship Zero? I can’t tell whether he hates her or respects her.
Uhh…where have I seen this before?
Throw something at them?
