Phew…that was a hell of an episode. This second half of the series has really been a completely different series if you compare it to the first half. I was definitely not expecting the Shiny Chariot reveal to play out like this. I take back every complaint I made about Ursula’s reluctance to tell Akko her secret. This reveal does such a great job of explaining so many elements of the series, like Akko’s lack of magical skill and the general disdain for Shiny Chariot in the magical world. It even explains why Diana lost her magic as a child. I’m glad that this series was hiding such an interesting underlying story. I’m definitely curious where this goes, because I’m guessing Chariot had a reason for using the Dream Fuel Spirit. Croix’s not completely off the hook yet.
You sure about that? There are still three episodes left? You probably don’t want to rush it.
I’m sure that Croix has a hand in all of this, but it’s still pretty silly that countries are going to war over the outcome of a soccer game. That would definitely never happen in real life…right? Plus, the whole “goal/no goal” thing makes it sound like it was a dispute about a decision that the game officials made. Why would it spark enmity between nations?
Am I the only person who’s a little too suspicious about the fact that Ursula says “almost” here?
I would get mad, but they showed us Diana in the scene right before this one. It was practically a given that she would intrude on this meeting right as Ursula was about to tell Akko about Shiny Chariot. We have to save that for the climax, right?
The “almost” strikes! Nice to see that last week’s episode didn’t magically fix everything.
They’re friends now!
Using youtube videos to spark controversy? Where have I seen this before?
While I don’t disagree with Croix’s statement that the anger comes from within the citizens, I’m pretty sure we’ve already seen evidence that she was provoking them. Anger is a normal thing, but she threw gas on the fire.
I’m kinda curious about what the master plan is. You gather a bunch of magic and do what with it?
