That was a bombshell and a half delivered at the end of the episode. However, prior to that, we get Seiya imparting some important wisdom on the two new additions to his party and some more training. It's pretty funny though not exceptional.
Hey look, the hero actually acted kind of heroically though given he had a planned contingency it kind of makes sense. Still, it was kind of fun watching him take out another heavenly king this week.
Ristarte continues to bemoan her cautious hero and Seiya continues to be obsessed with preparation and mistrustful of literally everyone and yet somehow this manages to work. It is more or less the same set-up and punch line over and over again with slightly different settings however so far I'm finding Shinchou Yuusha entertaining enough and largely that is down to the way the characters bounce off of one another.
While individually both the hero and the goddess aren't exactly great, when played against one another, Cautious Hero manages to actually be kind of funny and honestly I'm enjoying this different approaching to 'heroing' so far. While not great by any means, this one is probably a keeper for the season.
Oh look, another isekai. Right after finishing the wrestling one I move onto this. And we get another gimmick; in this case the hero might be fairly strong starting out but he's also almost pathologically cautious. Will the useless goddess convince him to be a hero or is this world doomed?
