Diablo starts the night by facing off against Keera’s unbeatable summons! Even if Diablo can win, there are more dangers lurking in the shadows.
When Shera finally told Keera that she had no interest in going back with him, he lost his cool (seriously, though this guy is a lip-licking anime villain so it’s not surprising) and unleashed a secret summons with the potential to destroy the world. If he can’t have Shera, no one can!
But then, he hadn’t counted on having to face off against Diablo, who to be frank, makes quick work of this so-called unstoppable monster. Having defeated the beast, Diablo is about to take care of Keera when Shera asks him to spare his life. He agrees, but then someone else finishes Keera off. Galford and an army of knights appear before them and reveal their sinister plan!
For the most part, this episode was light on the ecchi content, but we did have two pretty cool fights to make up for it. Firstly, Diablo versus the Hydra. Having recently seen a pretty terrible looking CGI Hydra in Arifureta, it was a pleasure to see a standard animation one and have it look far more terrifying. Sure, Diablo beat it pretty easily, but then he is a Demon Lord from another world.
Next, we had the fight with Galford, who looked like the first person in this world to really give Diablo a challenge. In the end, it looked like Diablo may have won, but also blagged it a little, which is one of the great things about his edgy demon lord persona.
Finally, once all the action was done with, Sylvie, the Guild Master paid Diablo a visit to celebrate. It turns out Diablo can’t hold his booze and Sylvie looks a little like a body pillow! All in, it was a fun episode with lots of action and it neatly wraps up the Shera arc, so now, we can move on to Rem’s arc.
Diablo versus the Hydra!
Diablo versus Galford!
Diablo versus Booze!
