Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Thirteen Thoughts

Hestia Endcard

I must say that I am impressed with the final episode. Usually the final episodes are either a hit or a miss. For me, this was a hit. It was really exciting as it was full of intense fights and action. I do wonder though, was that the same Monster Rex that Aiz beat by herself? Ryu estimated it to be a level five boss so it could very well be the same one. My thoughts will probably be answered in the books, but it’s not really that important. The important thing is that it was beaten.

I think the Monster Rex and the other dungeon monsters brought the best out of everyone. My wishes came true when we got a glimpse of just how cool and strong Ryu really is. She did extremely well and held her own not just against a monster rex, but a level five monster rex.

The ones that mattered the most I think were the most impressive. Welf swallowed his pride and used his own magic item sword to attack that monster rex. It looked like it managed to do some damage too. I really liked Ryu’s wind magic and I’m amazed that she was able to stand after using her spell and taking some damage. I especially liked Mikoto’s technique. It was as if she was using a samurai sword in form of magic to slice through that floor boss and covered that magic glow around that floor boss. She managed to keep him at bay for a good while as well. Good for her. I wonder what level she is. Level 2? Level 3 maybe? I need to make a big shout out to Asif. I liked the wings on her back. I’m guessing she’s as strong as Ryu.

All those adventurers played a humongous part as it led to Bell powering-up and eventual victory. His powered-up Firebolt was impressive and I think it aggravated the Monster Rex which made it focus on Bell instead of Ryu and Asfi. However, after Hestia and Lili’s encouragement and remembering his Grandpa’s words he woke up, refreshed. It looks as if he used a sword from the Loki Familia. Whether one of the Loki fighters left it behind or not, I’m not sure, but I’m pretty certain that Bell used it. He wielded that sword pretty well and he managed to cut the Monster’s top half of the body.

Ultimately he destroyed the rest of the body using the Hestia Knife. To me, that was a great way to beat a floor boss. I expected him to faint afterwards but luckily he managed to stay conscious. He must be close to Level 3 now.

What Hermes said at the end was quite interesting. This Zeus person that he mentioned… it’s implied that this Zeus is Bell’s Granddad. Does that mean that Zeus, a God, actually has his own familia and is related to Bell? If that’s the case then it would make a lot of sense. I wonder if that means that Bell belongs to two familias? One familiar led by Zeus, the other, by Hestia. I think it also makes a lot of sense of the fact that in Greek myth Zeus has many, many children with many Goddesses due to his reputation being intimate with women. Haha. In Greek myth Zeus and Hestia are also siblings. Demeter is also Zeus’ sister. In this show he’s very much into women and has encouraged Bell to be affectionate when it comes to the ladies. However, his scenes were a regular part of Bell’s flashbacks and thoughts.

I could be way off the mark here but I personally believe that this could be the case. =)

I’m glad the Loki familia didn’t come back to help Bell as I wanted everyone in his party to show off their abilities. I’m also glad that Bell saved those who have mistreated him in the Labyrinth Utopia. His attitude is really what sets him apart from the other adventurers. He reminds me of Edward the Blue Engine. He’s kind to others, even if they mistreat him badly. That’s the kind of dude Bell is.

I am glad that Bell, Hestia and his party joined Aiz and the rest of the Loki Familia at the Mistress of Abundance. It was nice to see them all having a meal together. I reckon it will be only a matter of time before Bell’s party works together with Aiz’s party. That will be fun to watch.

Bell sleeping on Hestia’s lap was a nice way to end the series.

Thanks for Reading. =)

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Twelve Thoughts

Episode 12 Endcard

Ah, it’s those nasty men from the bar. They were part of the dramatic scene that happened in this episode. I knew Hermes would be involved but I didn’t think those guys in particular would be involved. I was worried that something bad was going to happen to Hestia, and it sort of did. But, luckily, she was untied from that tree thanks to Lili. Nothing bad was really going to happen to her, she’s a Goddess after all.

Still, I knew Hermes was shady ever since he made his introduction. I was in two minds on whether he was in cahoots with Freya or was competing against her. It seems as though he wants to toughen Bell up indirectly. In that regard he’s similar to Freya. Luckily, Bell managed to grasp that guy’s fighting style and counter-attacked, even if he was invisible. They stopped as soon as Hestia used her divine power. Good for her. However, I think by using her power it invoked that very same Monster Rex that Aiz beat from many episodes ago.

Actually, is that right? In the books Aiz beat that same Monster Rex on Level 30+. I might have misunderstood something. But whatever the case we’re in for a showdown in the last episode.

I cringed at the bath scene. I knew Hermes was going to cause Bell trouble but as soon as he climbed that tree I knew immediately that was going to be where the girls had their bath. I had it on paused for several minutes to gear myself up to watch it. It was humorous before when Hestia was asking Bell about whether he disliked ‘sweaty girls’ and Aiz was sniffing her top in the background. Haha.

I especially cringed when Bell fell in the water. I was prepared for Bell to get a humongous battering. However, the complete opposite happened. They all literally welcomed him with open arms. In a way, it’s lucky for him as he wouldn’t need to peek but actually join them in the future. Haha.

I was sad to learn about Ryu’s past. I never knew that it was possible for Familiar families to hate one another. Now, both Familiar members are wiped out with the exception of Ryu. She looked cool when she dealt with those nasty men in one blow. I wonder which Familiar Ryu belonged to. It started to make sense when she said that she is blacklisted. In the previous episode she told Bell to keep her voice down and in this episode she bathed alone. She needs to keep her identity a secret in the dungeon. Otherwise she will get in trouble with the guild.

For next week’s episode. I reckon everyone, apart from the Gods, are going to fight together against that Monster Rex but the stars will be Bell, Ryu, Mikoto and Welf. I think one of two things will happen… Either Loki Familiar come back down and back Bell up, or, Freya sends recruitments so Bell doesn’t die. She might be evil but she loves Bell to the point of obsession and I wouldn’t be surprised if she gets involved somehow.

Lili Endcard

I’m sad that next week is the final episode. Even worse, it’s actually on my birthday. I usually put everything to one side to celebrate it with my family. However, next week, I may just have to postpone watching the final episode for a little while. That will be ok but the anticipation just may get the better of me so I won’t plan to watch this next week, I’ll just see how I feel when the time comes. =)

Thanks for reading. =)

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Eleven Thoughts

Bell and Hestia Endcard

I was a little nervous as I really didn’t know what was going to happen. Bell and his party looked like they were in pretty bad shape. Still, I’m glad they managed to reach the eighteenth floor and even managed to get past that Goliath. I wonder how that Goliath was able to respawn so quickly. Perhaps a lot of time passed between the last episode and this one? Or maybe it respawned through special circumstances. Hopefully, Freya is not involved and that is just a coincidence.

I really like the look of the eighteenth floor, the Labyrinth Utopia. The tree and the crystal ceilings are beautiful. I was just as surprised as Bell to learn that this floor also has a town. It makes sense as this designated area is actually a safe point. It’s pretty handy.

It seems that the Loki Familiar have finished their expedition. I’m going to assume that they managed to complete the 59th floor. Many congratulations to them. I bet it’s going to be big news when they go back to the surface as it is a big deal. I’m glad that Bell got to see Aiz again. I must say that I didn’t think that the Loki Familiar would appear again so quickly. I’m glad they did as it meant that we get to see Aiz again.

I knew Mikoto would be the one that would do the Dogeza pose. I think Bell forgave Mikoto and her party as he didn’t seem as angry or as unforgiving as Lili and Welf. I did expect that though. I think something is up with that Mikoto girl and I think Bell is sensing that something is up with her. I just think she looks sad all the time, then again, it could be just the way that she’s been drawn. Haha.

Bell and Hestia’s reunion was touching and almost perfect- until Lili dragged Hestia off of Bell. Haha. I sort of feel bad as I thought it was funny with the way that Hestia was rolling down that mountain. XD It was also funny when she interrupted Bell’s and Aiz’s moment when Aiz invited him out to town. Technically, Hestia is wrong here. Bell didn’t invite Aiz out, Aiz invited Bell out. So, Hestia could still be the first one for Bell to ask out to town. Well, Hestia was Bell’s first ever date, depending on how you look at it. Lili was there too, albeit, we only hear her rather than see her.

Does Aiz not know what a date is? I can’t really decide if she was annoyed at those Amazon twins for making a fuss over Bell or if she was a little jealous. She is a very pure lady so she wouldn’t flirt with Bell in the way they did as she shows affection through less physical means. I know she will willingly give Bell lap pillows but I don’t think that counts as flirting.

Hestia is right to be suspicious of Hermes as I am as well. Who told Hermes to take a look at Bell? Oh dear, don’t tell me he’s in cahoots with Freya. In the previous episode I had a theory that Hermes and Freya could be at war with each other and both would want to take Bell away from Hestia. But what if they were actually working together?

They’re two episodes left and the season needs to finish strongly with a dramatic twist. What if a bunch of Minotaurs venture down to the eighteenth floor whilst the Loki Familiar battle Goliath? It has already been shown that the monsters can go onto different floors with a push in the right direction, mostly from Freya. Something is going to happen I reckon and I wouldn’t be surprised if Hermes spearheads that operation against Bell and co.

That and it looks like Welf gets a new weapon from Hephaistos. He doesn’t look happy about it. If that is a new weapon and not a blacksmith tool then he will need to show what he can do in the dramatic ending battle. And I really would want to see more of Ryu in action. It was only brief but she certainly knows how to take the monsters down. =)

One final note, Argonaut is a good name for Bell.
