What’s the show? The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar, Episode 6.
So, last week you were hoping for something different from this show other than hastily put-together battle sequences, does this episode deliver? Oh it delivers something all right…
Oh? Oh… it’s going to be something perverted isn’t it? Ding! Ding! Ding! It’s a hot springs episode!
*face palm* I should’ve known… wait, so Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs a literal hot springs set anime didn’t have a hot springs scene this week but the fantasy series set in an almost medieval setting does?! I feel like I’m taking crazy pills… It is what it is. And it is very good!
I’d be more surprised if there was fan-service that you didn’t like so yeah— Don’t be so hasty, there’s plenty of ecchi series where I’ve not liked the fan-service—it’s just I don’t tend to talk about them. But that’s a topic for another day. So the girls and Yuuto go on a break to reward him for being just a really good leader and advancing civilization along more than anyone could have expected given the short period of time and it’s just a lot of light-hearted fun and harem shenanigans, what’s there to complain about?
Oh but there will be complaints, you know that to be true. Of course, but whatever, everyone’s entitled to their own opinions—no matter how wrong they are…
Excuse me?! You can’t say that about your fellow bloggers! Listen, they knew what they were getting into when they signed up for a harem Isekai series with a cast that’s 90% high-school aged anime girls, why complain about something you’re not the target audience for, hmm?
Have you been drinking again? Is this another trademark “drunk review”? First of all don’t trademark that, I don’t own that. Secondly, so what if I have? It’s been a tough week—so many fan service-y episodes, so many people complaining, so many missing the point of it all.
Oh yeah? Well care to enlighten me—no us to the nascent “point” of it all you belligerently obnoxious pervert? I think if you watch a show and solely hone in on whatever fan service is presented and thus equate it to something negative not only does it entertain a negative notion that sexuality is something to be shunned or demeaned but it also minimises authorial autonomy and suggests that catering to your ideals is important in a work of art than freedom of expression.
People are allowed to like and dislike what they want you know… I’m not disputing that, I just think it’s a bit narrow-minded to expect a show to curtail to your specific expectations when it’s a show not targeted to your proclivities. I don’t watch Free! or Idolish7 or whatever other show is flicking beans across the world and expect them to tone down the man-service and gratuitous hot boys. Why should ‘Silly Isekai Harem #426’ be expected to do the same!
I see your point. Can we just move on now please? Your rants give me heartburn… Fine…
So what happens in the rest of the episode? Not all hot springs shenanigans I assume? Indeed. Though we aren’t afforded much in the way of forward plot momentum—at least toward an end-goal for Yuuto returning home we get some ~interesting~ developments in regard to the society Yuuto is cultivating for when he eventually leaves. Wealth through superior advancements (in this case, glass is the main money-maker) and using that wealth to educate the young masses for free so everyone can speak the language and thus make a better world! He’s like the Elon Musk of anime, except you know, not a loud-mouthed c**t with too much time on his hands.
Apologies to Mr. Musk, please don’t launch us into the sun. So, uh, good episode then? Yeah, I mean it was a lot of fun, even excluding the hot springs part—I like that they developed the character of ‘slave girl’—Yuuto’s honestly a nice guy and I think that’s something that’s kind of endearing in our current political climate, a leader that’s an actual human being. Not like the clown they’ve got running the—
End of review! Jeez, we’ve already made enough enemies with your drunken madness. Apologies to everyone who suffered through this review!
