We can all agree that one of the best parts of this episode is Iruma tight as a kid who has been away from her parents for too long Hold onto Asmodeus and Clara? It’s usually pretty middle-of-the-road as wrap-up episodes go, but seeing how much Iruma misses his best friend is the perfect mix of cuteness and warmth. We know how much Azz-Azz and Clara miss him him , but he’s so focused on trying that we don’t see how much he’s missing them . But it’s also important because it reminds us of Orobas’ hallucinations over Iruma. The poor boy had been through more trauma than he deserved, so reassuring himself that it was just a nightmare was a natural extension of his relief after Harvest Festival was over. He found his friends, his grandfather, and his parents. Everything will be fine now. (Yes, I count Opera as Iruma’s parent, although I accept “older brother” too.) and we finally see the backside of the plot! I feel that this Harvest Festival, overall, the real time is four days, because it is really procrastinating. Still, it seems worth it for the Misfit Class, at least half of which (Purson notwithstanding) made it to the new class. Kalego is right that Asmodeus is happy not to have been promoted from dalet since he and Iruma are now twins of the same rank, but that’s not a problem either, since as Asmodeus himself points out, he’s already reached the rank required to retain Royal One . I’m sad that Clara didn’t level up, because she does seem to be trying hard, but maybe it’s because she’s just doing her usual stuff, while Elizabetta is trying new things, which brings her up to par. However, I do think Allocer was robbed – he and Jazz made a complex plan and executed it under everyone’s noses, and while Jazz can’t be ranked because he lost his eligibility, Allocer deserves more recognition.

As far as the overall plot is concerned, see Come on we were right to be skeptical about Ojo. Orobas’ confusion last week was actually because he didn’t remember Ocho, who may have the ability to mend people’s memories. Considering how he is in this episode, it’s clear Orobus isn’t himself during the Harvest Festival. He’s ambitious and has issues with Misfit Class, but he’s not cruel. It seems unlikely that he would deliberately harm the Misfits with such obvious intent to harm them, especially since, as Keroli’s victory demonstrates, magical beasts are smart enough that his powers are likely to have an effect on them. Callego also clearly suspects that something is wrong, probably because despite his tantrums, he does care about the students, and he may have sensed that Orobas’s behavior was out of character. He may not have spotted Ocho, but he strongly suspects he’s there, and “illegally attending school activities” he won’t let go, although from the preview it looks like he’s going to take on his Robin.

As for bringing endless arcs In the end, it’s a nice approach. It wasn’t a standout episode, but it had enough good moments to help us overlook the fact that not much happened, and a lot of its segments felt just because fans would love them, from Ameri to fluffy Kalego. Now we can look forward to seeing Robin’s hidden badass side next week, when we figure out Ocho’s true intentions.
