Anyone watch this yet? I was really impressed by the first episode.

I thought it looked like more of a kids anime, but it's super interesting so far. The premise is there's a deaf prince who everyone kind of looks down on for being deaf and dumb, but he'll eventually have to become a king. There's a cool little shadow creature, lots of potentially interesting characters, and the animation and artstyle are both really striking.

The king is an absolute fucking unit
I like this trope in anime/games where the "normal" size range for humans is exaggerated to complement their personality or abilities

This fight scene was sick
I have to believe that Bebin isn't really dead though, especially since we still don't know what happened with him and Kage, and he was mentioned by the big three headed snake. He got swallowed up by the earth after he collapsed there but after what happened to the king I have no idea what could be going on.

I also like the trope of saving a strange, small, animal and having it grow up to be huge and powerful. Overall this show really nails the storybook feeling while also being heartwarming and cool and interesting

 No.3355

This anime surprised me alot, if it keeps up with the quality it'll be the best of the season for sure.

>>3340
We have 20 more episodes to find out; plus given all the mystery, i think more stuff like that will happen.

>>3341
The snake was so cool, and how she (?) got her scars too. I think we'll get some more back-story for her too.

When he asked Hokuro about blind loyalty i did not think this is what he was talking about, i thought he had someone else who was helping Bojji in the shadows, not (presumably) the Queen ordering murder.

The wilderness king and this big soul monster were my favorite parts of the episode. Things like that and the casual pit to hell are nice bits of worldbuilding that really help sell me on the idea that this takes place in a fantastical storybook world.
>>3364
I think it was Daida who ordered the assassination, the mirror was telling him to. My personal theory right now is that Domas is secretly really cowardly despite being a good person and doesn't know how to do anything other than be loyal. It would kind of fit with how dismissive he was of Bojji's fighting style in the first episode, calling it "not the swordsmanship of a king" etc.

>The wilderness king
Do you think he is one of the former #1 kings that went mad?

I agree with what you said about Domas but i think it was the queen who ordered the assassination because of how she dropped the cup and looked resigned. However it doesn't fit with she healing Bojji and caring a lot about him.

 No.3375

I saw an interesting theory that it was Domas who poisoned Bojji's meat, and the knives were thrown by either Kage or Bebin to protect him. We don't know what Bebin discussed with Kage after catching him and it makes me wonder if he's not less of an antagonist as he seems. There's also the possibility that he "died" to Apeas on purpose or sent a clone or something so as not to have to kill him, since his corpse melted away.
>>3370
Oh shit I didn't consider that about the wild king, that's a neat idea. Wonder if we'll see him again or if he was just shown for some worldbuilding.

 No.3395

And we got a another king now, i wonder how of them there are. Bojji's brother got ranked 70 something, right?

This show man. I guess I was right about Domas just being weak willed but good at heart. Super interesting character.

It was great to see Kage come to the rescue there. Still curious about Bebin and his relationship with the king, and what happened with him and Apeas.

This whole bizarre alchemy sequence was fucking awesome. They really sold the Mirror as being privy to some kind of ancient arcane tradition. It really seems like they're setting up the Mirror as an even bigger antagonist than Daida. I have to wonder if he won't redeem himself somehow with how strong willed he's being against her, but I'd have a hard time forgiving him for trying to kill Bojji

Well I had this question answered for me. Several more have been raised though. I guess I'll just have to wait to figure out what her deal is. She clearly has Apeas by the balls somehow, which I suppose makes sense if his deal is being super loyal to King Bosse. But I have to wonder why Bosse wanted Bojji to succeed him instead of Daida, especially since the mirror said Daida was "precious to her".

The curses he refered to is what i'm most interessed right now. It may be that Bosse got his powers unnaturally, suffered the consequences but also got Bojji cursed too. The shadow clan curse is also a curious idea.

I'm also curious about that statue's face.

You aren't I was just saying that since the king ended up down there the mirror must have had some way to transport him there after he got disappeared by the demon.

Great episode as always. I'm curious to see what kind of secret training Bojji's been doing. The reveal at the end was super cool. It was also nice seeing Kage and Bojji's daily lives living with the trainer dude. I was wary of him at first since he was so greedy and got beat up but he seems to be legit. I appreciate how you can never really tell everything about the characters in this show from just seeing them once, it makes them feel realistic and three-dimensional

Also interesting line from the Mirror about sacrificing "another one of her sons". I wasn't expecting her to be a body stealer.

 No.3445

>>3444

What if it was King Bosse instead of the Mirror that said that?
King Bosse even appeared out of nowhere to save the people from the evil creatures, so he may be just another stolen body as well.
