I wonder if she's actually a tanuki and they just didn't translate it.
Also the slave market has an amazing theme song.
I wanna see her massive nutsack if she's a tanuki
I wonder how hard it's gonna hit Raphtalia when she gets to know about his masster's backstory…
At least she has the same cute clothes.

Do demi-humans mature very quick or something?>>28588
She'll probably trust that he isn't that kind of person. At least I hope so, I don't want to see her suffering anymore ;-;
>>28593>Do demi-humans mature very quick or something?
Nah this episode skipped forward in time.
It's not explained yet in the show but basically demi-humans mature past childhood by their exp level. It seems that they don't mature after adolescence in that manner, or at least it's reduced to being beyond notice.
It's some retarded shit to swap a loli with a lady at the end of the day so don't bother reading into it.
It skipped forward literally a week though…>>28595
Ah I see.

Boy do I want to see this woman die a horrible death.
She's still just as swayable as everyone else and I'm sure she'll feel at least conflicted. Notice how she was easily charmed by the spear hero and only gathered herself a couple of moments later.
I read the manga of this and it's not very good. I wonder if it's worth two cours and such high production values.
i liked her better as a loli
I don't think they'll be able to keep the quality very high as the anime progresses but we'll see. It will most likely depend on BD sales.

I think I get it now.
The king and his daughter see the shield hero as useless, so they're trying to unlock his cursed form so he powers up (seemingly at the cost of his sanity).
HA! I called it!
Nice to see loli raphtalia again too. So I guess he had always seen her as a kid huh. >>28680
If they are, they sure are being extremely smug about it. My guess is that they're just huge assholes.
Naofumi sure hit the gacha jackpot with this one huh.>>28751
I'm sure he's not in on it and is just a huge idiot.
That voice is the most moe thing I've ever heard.>>28751
He seems to just be having everything his way so he doesn't realise how detached from reality he is. At least the other two heroes are a bit more bearable.
how is babby formed?
The anime raised a red flag for me when the heroes turned out to have some video-gamey HUD all of their own, but I kept watching because of the plot. The last couple of episodes haven't been bad but the anime is devolving into the usual shtick. I'll keep giving it a watch for the time being because I assume they're taking their time and padding episodes with content so they can make it to 24 episodes with something to offer.
Naufumi's "nuclear mode" is really, really bad
I warned you all the way back at the start of the thread
I warned you the source material was dumb
When he goes nuclear all he gets is a shield that burns and loses out on the ability to use any other shields or magic. At his strongest form he still sucks.

The moment they panned to the ninja bitches I knew things were not what they seemed.
Also she shows up right next to the queen in the OP.
I can't say it wasn't satisfying to see Naofumi tell her to go away. She was deceitful from the start.>>29048
Spear hero is the true hero of this story.
I'd have more respect for spear if he didn't play isekai so poorly. He gets transported to a world full of lolis and he still is stuck with a old hag.
Not to mention she informed them she got separated from her family much later after they had already met. She also seemed awfully calm for someone who has just recently been separated from their family and too clean for someone who's been missing for awhile with no cash. >>29051
This fuck-nugget of a hero truly only thinks with his dick. Every minor and major decision is made by Myne and he just goes along with whatever she says.
Being totally fair, isekai as a genre (or rather, harem isekai) is almost completely about thinking with your dick and winning for it.
Pretty shit episode he bought equipment again, called the other heroes idiots again and recruited more party members. They should have just skipped forward to the wave.
Is the author chinese? I don't know much about japanese history, but I remember something about the chinese being very particular about imperial scrolls and the authority they invest upon their wielders.>>29225
They're padding the episodes for sure.
It's just the imperial seal / the king's seal / the royal messenger sort of thing
The author's not Chinese as far as I know
I think decrees and official communication are depicted as scrolls in most fantasy stuff.
>>29296>but they just sit there and watch.
Yeah, I mean they were taking a few swings at monsters while Naofumi was getting on the boat but I don't think they're really doing much lol.
I do think its neat how the rage shield is taking the rage of other things to use too. there's only so much rage Naofumi can generate on his own I guess.

Last week's episode was good enough up until the end. There was a sense of progression and some obvious and not-so-obvious foreshadowing (such as the blacksmith bro about to say something about demi-human supremacist SHIELDfreeden being interrupted by Filo) and it felt competent.Then came Melty.This character baffles me. The author of this work is at least capable enough to add some intelligent bits to this story, but Melty will either put him above average for me or deal critical damage to my appreciation of his work. She's mostly calm and collected, obviously a schemer and has aa pretty good poker face. She dropped her facade when she reached the capital and got flat-out rejected. Now here she is again, now throwing a tantrum more fitting of the character she put up when she met Naofumi for the first time. Is this another act or is it being played straight? The build-up leans towards the former but I keep being haunted by >>28977 's statements.Then the soldiers.Naofumi is 100% correct about it stinking of set-up. But I can't stop myself from reading too much into it. Why would the soldier try to kill Melty with a sword, so close to the hero everyone had just hesitated attacking in a group when he was in the castle? Is the bow hero the only person in this world who knows how to use one? What about magic? Is it just another layer to Melty's possible scheme, to make Naofumi show he cares about Melty, or at least lead him into eventually thinking that way? Or maybe the soldiers are part of some freedom-fighting faction that thought Naofumi would be their ally in getting rid of the royal family? Why else would they attack her so flagrantly in front of him?Or maybe it's all just very dumb. It will be even dumber if all my worries about the story come true and on top of that Naofumi immediately sides with Melty.This week's episode will tell whether Melty is a good or awful character. She might be better characterized in the LNs but in the anime she's all over the place. I'm looking forward to it and not for the best reasons, as I'm focusing on the meta rather than the actual story.
>>29473 >Why would the soldier try to kill Melty with a sword
Naofumi's party uses a sword and bird to kill stuff so killing with something else wouldn't really make sense. Other than that though it is pretty silly.
new OP reminds me of Bleach or something

Well, the resolution made sense in a dumb way. Sure, it explains why the guy is attacking Melty right in front of Naofumi but the reasoning makes no sense.Myne: infiltrate my younger sister's personal guard!Soldier: I get it! Then we kill her!Myne: no, you fool! We must implicate the shield hero! Take her on a carriage to the outskirts of town!Soldier: I get it! Then we kill her and doctor the images in the crystal ball to make the killer look like the shield hero!Myne: …Myne: daddy this soldier raped me!Why drive her all the way to Naofumi and then film him fighting soldiers to doctor the footage if you can DOCTOR THE FOOTAGE IN THE FIRST PLACE AND AVOID ALL OF THIS? You get the other heroes irrevocably turned against Naofumi, the entire nation (queen included) turned against him AND YOU'RE GUARANTEED THE THRONE.Don't get me wrong, it's still an entertaining anime, but not one meant to think about.Meanwhile, Melty feels like a completely different character and Naofumi got to trust her way too easily in my opinion. She hasn't even offered a single explanation about that extremely suspicious way of meeting them that she concocted.Then episode 15, pic relatedThis felt so hypocritical, coming from the guy who unlocked the cursed shield. Later he drops a line about how Raphtalia restored his faith in people and while he does treat her and a select few others with trust, everyone else is still locked out. I'd go so far as to say the only special relationship he has formed is with the spear hero (real hero of this story and don't you forget it). He's the one with who Naofumi has the most organic interactions and it's obvious Naofumi gets a kick out of being his tsukkomi.
I hope Naofumi kills her single-handedly.
Don't worry, I've read most of this and there are actually more heroes
and some of them are from their own isekai and trying to destroy this isekai.

At this point I'm only watching this for glimpses of The Righteous Adventures of the Spear Hero.
I don't see how this could ever get a satisfactory ending
I know right?
This makes what? 3 episodes with them stuck in that dumb crater?
At least its over now lol.
And yeah, the queen is hot.
Why has 'mature' become a euphemism for being a hag? People are pretty 'mature' by the time they're 25ish.
25 is way past old hag territory though
Jokes aside I think it's because people with an honest to god fetish for women much older than them use that term rather than "old women" kinda like how people who are into fat girls use words like Curvy.
>kinda like how people who are into fat girls use words like Curvy.
now it's "mya-nee"
I assumed it didn't have a shield mode because it's a weapon from the church of the _three_ heroes.
Isn't the whole point that it doesn't include the shield hero or am I missing something
Oh so it was made by the church. I just didn't register that. I thought it was a weapon made by someone else to emulate the heroes weapons then the church took it and "lost" it.

Some people's voices have a more nasal tone. Other voices come from the throat. People who can project their voice tend to use their diaphragm.
This woman's voice, though. It comes straight from the womb.

Haha, I saw this coming as soon as the queen mentioned what she was going to do. At least he made it so they have to suffer for a while lol
meh, I think it's cringe imo. exile or prison
would have been more convincing.
Yeah you're right, but they were both pretty prideful so I'm sure it stings still.
Cheesy as hell but hopefully we won't have to see them anymore.
Yeah hopefully being stripped of all their power will render them a non issue in the future.
Seems like they've made it to another country already too by how the episode began so that'll be neat to see.
>>30417>Why has 'mature' become a euphemism for being a hag? People are pretty 'mature' by the time they're 25ish.
A hag is someone who's gone over the hill. As in, the prime of her youth and beauty. After that, there's another hill to conquer. Women who manage to stay hot or reinvent their hotness are bestowed the title of 熟女. Those who don't become hags.>>30545>>30547
Don't count on it. They've kept the king's reason to hate the shield hero pretty vague. The author is at least clever enough to tie loose ends.
Only on episode 15 right now but I feel like the rage shield gimmick is the worst way to use the "edgy angry powerup" trope, whatever you could call that.
He simply just starts burning whatever is a couple feet in front of him and screams while doing it. Its fucking embarrassing.

How does Raphtalia go from this >>28531
I'm more and more convinced this anime can't handle characterization. That portion felt very out of character for the queen.
Then you have the scythe guy and jewel Hayami Saori who reek of scammers, but the anime isn't selling them as such. Naofumi has the shield stuck to his arm, does all matter of things that shouldn't be natural for a shield to do, all three other heroes are on the ship and everyone in it know it and the scythe guy pretty much made use of the good old "you can't be X because you're oh such a good pal" trick to warm up Naofumi and the rest of the party to him. Someone as social as scythe dude seems to be should know who's on the ship.
At least Melty is out of the way.
Mind your use of quoting.

It won't happen again…
I completely forgot index is airing. Thanks for the reminder.
>>30707>Index is airing
Did they get a season 4
It does seem weird, especially since Naofumi's face was projected all over the place when he was framed for kidnapping Melty. I dunno. Scythe seems a bit sketchy but he also doesnt seem like a bad dude. Maybe he was just partying up with him to gauge Naofumis combat style? I cant really see him doing anything to screw him over colossally at this point.
It seems like something's gonna happen next episode between them anyways judging by how scythe didn't want to party up again.
>>30702>At least Melty is out of the way.
maybe he meant that he forgot to finish it while it was on or the accelerator anime that's on the way
A bit late considering it's episode 24
Yeah, there's only one episode left…
Why are the other heroes so shit anyways? How are they so weak when they got all the good shit pretty much handed to them?
>>30782>why are other heroes so shit anyway
Because how else is the writer supposed to emphasize how cool and heroic and badass the shield hero is?
is it really "interesting" if its just an OMFG STRONG enemies introduced at the last second?
I don't even ask questions anymore.
Like "if the point of the heroes from the other world is to kill the cardinal heroes, why not dispatch Spear, Sword and Bow while they're still weak?"
Because the author isn't concerned enough and so I shouldn't be either. Or he'll pull some half-assed reason somewhere in however many volumes the LN has ("they need to be strong before being killed because the exp gained heals the other world better"; "they're so weak even if they live they won't be able to deal with the waves without shield").
or maybe it's just a dumb isekai and you're overthinking it
File: gee thanks.jpg (151.52 KB, 1920x1080) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
25 episodes and no real conclusion
hoping this gets a S2
it's probably the best isekai anime I've ever watched
(not that it was particularly good)
