Farewell and Remember the Souvenirs
If It’s For My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord Episode 10
What do you even say about an episode like this? If It’s for My Daughter I’d Even Defeat the Demon Lord gives us an episode where we essentially say farewell to everyone and retrace the journey all the way back to Kreuz and as a direct result it kind of feels like nothing is happening except that we now see the characters a little bit older and more settled than they were a few months ago when they set out.
Don’t get me wrong. If you’ve been enjoying Uchi no Musume up until this point, episode 10 gives you pretty much what you would expect in terms of tone and character and is a very enjoyable watch. However, there’s not really one new thing to be found. Latina gets new ribbons and a name from Dale’s grandmother which apparently means she can return whenever she wants (though given her attachment to Dale – and the distance – I doubt she’ll be visiting any time soon).
We say goodbye to the magic flying puppies but find out their fur can scare off less intelligent monsters. We also learn their fur is woven into Latina’s new ribbons. Dale gets his new coat. We visit Joseph again. Stop by the town near the water and eat clams and go shopping. And then we’re back at the tavern in Kreuz and it is like nothing changed.
Episodes like these can either be calming or dull depending on your frame of mind. I kind of found this a relaxing watch but I certainly wouldn’t blame someone else for finding it a bit empty. I would really like to find out more about Latina’s past but with only two episodes left I get the distinct impression this one is going to end without really any kind of resolution. It was still a cute watch but a bit of a shame the story didn’t progress a bit further.
