Just caught up with this series and it's been really wholesome despite the initial premise. I am curious to know what the deal is with Honjou. Something is up there, but the story has only teased stuff so far.

I didn't mention it in my post, but the animation work during that gargoyle fight sequence was something else. They got real stylized and wacky with it in the best way possible.

I liked the pictures of cats at the end. My cat loves to lay in the shrimp position all the time.

Sirius almost awakened something there for a sec. That would have been a whole different set of tags...

I just binged everything available for this series and it was remarkably wholesome and cute. I was expecting something spicier based on the premise and opening chapters, but it is actually a comfy romance with just a dash of magic.

I almost got a jump scare at the end. I was not expecting him to be the one behind the camera.

On a side note, looks like there is going to be a short hiatus and then the story is entering its final arc.

Laios's perception of Kabru cracked me up this episode. Laios really doesn't understand people at all.

Does that chapter end mean that there is going to be direct continuation next chapter? That happens so rarely in this series that I almost don't believe it.

Something that I really like about the conversation they had on the trolley is that it brought some things full circle:

  • The series started out with losing Falin and wanting to go back and get her. So, what better way to have a finale than to have Laios talk about how he started adventuring with Falin to begin with. Also, that he made a promise to himself to never abandon her ever again.
  • The initial fight against the red dragon was lost in part due to not having eaten, leading to losing Falin. So, let's talk about all the times that Falin actually wanted to sit down and eat together with Marcille.
  • Eating monsters was once seen as taboo and a very transgressive thought when the show started and only done out of necessity. Now, however, the group is realizing that it could be the solution staring them right in the face and they are actively trying to think of ways to increase the amount of ~~people~~ mouths they could bring to bear on the draconic parts of Falin.
  • Finally, the group decides to cook and eat something together as the screen fades to black and the season ends. The one thing that they could have done, but skipped, leading to the problems at the beginning of episode 1.

Also, RIP half-foot Marcy. She was too cute to be allowed to exist any longer.

I feel like the credits pages for this series are just about the only thing keeping me going with it. They are almost always excellent.

Ugh...back to disappointing form. What happened to stuco prez? She was running off for help a couple chapters ago. This resolution to things feels so anticlimactic and uninspired.

@[email protected] I was trying to crosspost this to [email protected] and it seems like crossposting might be broken in the 0.19.4 lemmy-ui. When I select the community to crosspost to, it erases all the content that I was crossposting.

I was able to do it from the photon frontend though (my first time trying it out).
