Ikta finally woke up and figured out a plan to get around the unsleeping guy and that was nearly anti-climatic in the end. Not because turning the tables mid-battle with words alone (after a show of force) isn’t impressive, but the fact that it happened mid-episode followed by a stilted and awkward conversation between the two (with a wonderful barrier of fire separating them) just kind of made it all seem kind of blah. The rest follows Ikta and the Princess reuniting and her very odd request that makes a really bizarre amount of sense given the context.
“You will lose the war in the right way.”
That said, now I do want this show to continue because while watching these characters and this conflict I’ve kind of become invested in where things will go and while it is tied up enough that we could leave it here, I’d really like to see more. Time will tell, I guess.
I still firmly recommend checking this out and Alderamin is available on Crunchyroll.
