Hagure Yuusha no Estetica episode 11
It turned out to be a predictable, yet amusing episode. It kind of makes me curious about how it’s going to end. There is only one episode left, yet Akatsuki is still fighting Phil. I was so looking forward to a matchup between Akatsuki and the student council president, but I don’t think that’ll happen anymore.
Anyway, it was pretty much as I expected. Phil transformed into a monster and terrorized the school and its students once more. Even I have to admit that that dragon looks pretty good, but I don’t agree with the name “Zahaal”. I somehow get that strange feeling that the name “Zahaal” does not belong here in this particular anime, but maybe that’s just me.
Now, I may have made a slight mistake in my calculations last week. I was under the impression that Akatsuki would fight Phil in that state before his friends came to help him out. It was actually his friends that fought him whilst he was recovering from last week’s poisonous encounter with Phil. It’s a minor detail, I suppose, but still very important.
The one thing I like most about this episode was that Miu finally accepted her place in this world by Akatsuki’s side. Akatsuki made it very clear to her that she’s always welcome and that her friends care about her wellbeing. It’s nice to know that we don’t have to be bothered by her suicidal nonsense during the last episode.
There’s only one thing that I would like to see at this point, as the rest has pretty much been shown already; I want Akatsuki to prove, once and for all, that there are stronger things out there than magic. Well, that and the fact that he’s stronger than the student council. They have been bothering him for so long, so I think it would be nice to see him come out on top. Perhaps that’s just me though?
