This week we spend most of our time in the modern world with Mitsuki (Yuuto’s childhood friend/crush) as she tries to figure out where he actually is in history. Wondering why it is episode 9 before this happens, but why not?
One of the reasons I ended up following along with this show (other than the absence of obvious competition for my attention this season) was because I was interested in the time shift aspect. It is set up as such a standard harem/isekai story except it seemed that the protagonist was in the past rather than a different world. Then of course we have characters running around with seemingly magic powers and I couldn’t help but wonder where they were going with this.
Turns out Ragnarok isn’t in the title just because someone thought it sounded cool. Seems they intended to actually take a look at some of the Norse myths they’ve kind of referenced even if they are stepping outside of the original stories (you know because stories don’t always stay the same over time so the actual events are allowed to be a bit different). It’s actually a reasonably clever premise and a fairly solid setting for the story. Where I would criticise it is that its taken 9 episodes to even explain this much and a lot of what has happened in the meantime hasn’t really felt like it has contributed a great deal toward some mythological battle between gods.
That said, I was happy the story is finally addressing the premise it set us up with, even if they segue through girls comparing breast sizes because that’s a universal no matter what time period we’re in, at least according to anime.
