「A Bordo! – La Battaglia Finale」
“On Board! – The Final Battle”
There is a lot going on in today’s action filled episode of La storia della Arcana Famiglia. Last week’s issue with Nova’s father remains and it turns out that Nova unintentionally put his father to sleep. He’s still conflicted about the whole situation but the reason why his father is in coma is that Nova’s power went out of control. So how do you make sure that doesn’t happen again? – Disguise yourself as a pirate and attack the person wielding the unstable power!
Dante’s plan was clever. Not only did it bring the trio together emotionally, it also helped the boys develop their powers. I’m a bit surprised Libertá fought the masked man. While he did appear as a villain to our trio this week, he’s still Libertá’s hero, also, I thought he’d figured it out that Dante was the masked man. I think it’d be more normal to question the man before attacking him. That issue aside, the battle was very intense and interesting. It looks like Libertá’s training has paid off as he performed very well in the fight. Unfortunately the boys weren’t strong enough to stay awake after using their Arcana powers. I’m a bit surprised Felicitá just stood there as the mast fell towards her. It looked like she had time to run, or just step one meter aside… Oh well, all’s well that ends well!
Last week, I feared that Jolly would do something bad to our trio but it seems like I was wrong, although, he is still quite mysterious, and scary too – I mean, that uncanny beverage that was served in the omake… Personally, I think it’d be more fun if Nova would be punished instead of Libertá as he is more calm, and less expressive. Libertá already expressed his carnal emotions throughout the episode – loud enough to make everyone run into the hands of trouble. I hope Jolly concocts another potion just for Nova, or maybe Luca; that would be priceless!
And speaking of Luca – it looks like next week’s episode will focus on him and Debito. I’m a bit surprised at how long it took for this anime reach the conclusions for Nova and Libertá’s stories. Next week, the second half of this anime will begin but only one third of the characters have been properly introduced. If La storia della Arcana Famiglia doesn’t get a second season, I’ll be very surprised. Anyway, let’s look forward to next week’s episode where we’ll have a look at Luca’s secret base. I wonder what that could be…
