「黒竜激突」 (Kokuryuu Gekitotsu)
“Black Dragon Clash”
Oh Isekai Maou, may you never change. Adding boy bunnies to the alternate world harem? Not in the slightest. Although anyone could’ve seen Horn’s true sex given her ever so slightly haughty voice. As for robotic maid servants? Yeah, I think that one came out of left field – although the results are certainly going to be to die for. Just ask Lumachina about the ecstasy of meeting your maker.
As fully predicted at the end of last episode, Diablo survived and helped to once again save the day. Isekai Maou admittedly has no real twist on its basic strategy – i.e. Diablo outright murdering things with the power of
introverted embarrassment max levelled abilities – but I kind of hoped we might’ve got something a little different for the dungeon’s grand finale. A fighting version of last week’s dancing if you will, since god knows there’s a good bit of unexplored potential between Shera, Rem, and Lumachina. Hell, we even had a good chance for it given Diablo’s somewhat chivalrous loss of clothing and staff both. Might just be down to the pacing of this season though; considering how quick many of the dungeon’s floors were swept through, there’s not much time to sit back and smell the roses.
The interesting bit, however, lies in where we’re going from here. Besides one lascivious bull answering how pesky thigh curses will be dealt with for a bit of arc concluding happiness, the main threat of this detour has now properly emerged courtesy of Varakness’ anticipated reappearance. There should be no real shocker here: Diablo will help Fanis with her demon problem, Fanis will let Lumachina indulge in her priestly desires in exchange, and both sides will probably amicably part ways. The Diablo fan club will certainly do their part in helping show who the true demon lord actually is (truly), but it’ll be one fight that I fully expect Diablo to solely conclude yet again. Well, except for whatever Fanis gets up to of course, but I’m not about to speculate on what could possibly be.
After all, given the plentiful visuals on hand of late, some things are better left to surprise.
