Grancrest War #03 — Know Your Place

Get back in the kitchen and learn some white magic.

Impressions:

What a mess. This episode couldn't seem to figure out what the hell it was, and most of its flailing was just plain bad. Special credit goes out to Siluca, who was reduced to a weak-kneed little schoolgirl with a crush simply by our sack of flour protagonist standing a little too close and being told that she was overshadowing him. Of course, she learned her lesson that he was the true hero by the way he sacrificed himself to protect her. Note that no actual sacrificing happened. She passed out, and then declared that he had done so, and in the next scene, wounds appeared on him. Probably so that she could do what women are supposed to do, take care of her man.

At this point, they dropped all that entirely and had a random fight with some random dude. Why? Who knows! He's Some Dude. So why the hell not? For as many beheadings and blood geysers as there were, and how idiotically good-natured Theo is, you'd think they'd have wanted to find some reason to go slaughter a few hundred fellow humans. And make no mistake, it was a slaughter where I don't think a single person on Team Good Guy got so much as a scuffed knee until, once again, they cut to the next scene and our heroic protagonist got a little red splashed on him. Also, they shoved some random white mage in the opening segment and then totally forgot she existed for all but 30 seconds of the rest of the episode.

    This episode was extremely fast. I understand is an adaptation but wasn’t going this to be 24 episodes?

    I hope blondie has an ulterior motive and betrays that idiot of male lead at some point, that would be good. I commend this for keep showing beheads and action so far, that’s good keep it up show.
