Yeah, tbh I'm up to ep 4 and it still isn't really going anywhere, just keep getting infodumped on. I enjoyed ep. 3 with the redhaired guy, his twintailed assistant, and the island's private military. But ep. 4 they go back to one of the small islands to teach mc-kun more about leylines and dragons and stuff.
Unfortunately, crippling alcoholism-kun appears to be the primary supporting character of the story. Personally I find him annoying.
