Gate 2 episode 06
Another hectic episode that makes you want to pull your hair out. I don’t mind building up suspense or making a villain look particularly evil at certain points, but at least try to make these things less obvious and less predictable.
The author should’ve done it like he/she does it when introducing new characters. I mean, they introduced a new character when we weren’t expecting it at all. To think that our beloved blue-haired mage had a big sister… I would never have guessed. That’s where they shine. But then they kind of drop the ball when it comes to dramatic scenes because you can already see what’s coming. We all know that the prince’s slave will be discovered soon and she will pay for it with her life. I’m pretty certain that it’s going to be the JSDF that will solve it.
It was painfully obvious. The king holds some kind of ceremony where all sorts of influential figures show up and where they discuss and celebrate all sorts of things. And what happens? A toast of course. The possibility of his drink being poisoned was painfully obvious. It could go either way here; the king dies and a new king will be crowned or the JSDF will save the king’s life with their modern medicine.
I am inclined to bet on the latter. I doubt it’ll be that easy for that slave and her henchmen to kill a king. In fact; I am kind of hoping that the JSDF will save his life so that he’ll be in their debt. I just don’t want to see that cocky, insane prince being crowned a king. That will ultimately lead to their destruction at the hands of the mighty JSDF.
