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. =)

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

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime

So, it seems like everyone in the Soma Familiar are addicts and they can’t get enough of that wine. It does make me think of people who get high on drugs but here they’re getting high on wine. That’s why they’re materialistic, as is Lili, to some extent. The difference here is that Lili wants to get enough money so she can leave the Soma Familiar once and for all. I knew there was a genuine reason why Lili was being deceitful and I didn’t have it in me to dislike her. Neither, it seemed, did Bell.

I did get the impression that Lili did not bear any bad feelings towards Bell she was really desperate to leave her Familiar. When her familiar abandoned her I was eagerly waiting for Bell to come and rescue her, and he did just in time. I was pleased about that. His new Firebolt magic has really come in handy, and he used it just in time to save her.

Of course, she was feeling incredibly guilty and judged Bell for treating her nicely. I get the impression that Bell didn’t really have a reason for saving Lili, except that he wanted to. But when he was questioned he just gave her answers just for the sake of it. Sometimes people do thing for no apparent reason, and Bell just saved her just because he wanted to. It was rather emotional seeing Lili pour her heart out like that. I wonder if Hestia will allow her into her own Familiar and allow her to be Bell’s Supporter. In my opinion, she will accept her into her Familiar, albeit reluctantly as she will probably see Lili as competition. Haha.

It’s great seeing Aiz. Loki teased her about her “man running off.” I don’t imagine Aiz being the vocal type so I imagine Loki could foresaw Bell rolling away when she was “upgrading” Aiz’s level status. I’m really certain that Aiz does harbour some sort of affection for Bell and did seem insensitive over the prospect that he’s avoiding her. It was great when she helped Bell out with those Orcs and it appeared that she found Bell’s arm protector and knife on the floor.

It looks like the next episode is going to be about Aiz. I really don’t think she’ll meet Bell again anytime soon, I think they’ll meet right at the end of this series. I predict that we’ll probably get a small background and learn more about Aiz and how she earned the nickname, “Sword Princess.”

Then again… Aiz still needs to give Bell back his Hestia Knife and the arm guard he got from Eina. Perhaps Aiz will give it to him in person. However, I personally think that she’ll give it to Riveria or someone like Syr to give it to Bell instead. Who knows what will happen but I do know that I’m enjoying this anime a lot and it’s a shame that the episodes have to end so quickly.

My guess on Hestia working part-time for Hephaistos was right. This way she could pay her back quicker. She really suits the maid outfit.

Eina looks rather dashing but still dignified in her casual outfit. I can’t help but think that she looks completely different without her glasses. Subtle changes like that can be quite amazing. =) She was a little playful too. I didn’t think she had in her to be flirtatious. Perhaps being around Bell has brought this side out of her. I didn’t know she was 19, Bell made it sound like she was older than she appears.  It was nice of Eina to invite Bell to the Blacksmith department.  I really like the look of his armour, and that special present that Eina gave him looks especially important.

I wasn’t sure what to make of Lili. In the last episode she was treated badly by that dude, but she was actually smiling. Did she enjoy getting ill treatment? The same sort of thing did happen in this episode. But then, it seems like everything was a plot on her part. She deliberately did a bad job for the man until a better offer came along, and that better offer was Bell. She wanted to become his supporter so she could try and nab his knife and pawn it off. She couldn’t pawn it off as that knife can only be used by Bell.

Bell did not show any signs of suspicion or distrust towards Lili, and he didn’t hesitate to share the profit that the two of them earned. Lili was naturally surprised. I have a theory that she probably knew of Bell for some time and thought that she could take advantage of his good nature. In a way, she has. But Bell is genuinely sharing the profit with her without knowing her real intentions. That’s the kind of good guy he is.

I do wonder if the Soma Familiar as at the back of Bell’s mind. Eina brought to his attention that those from the Soma Familiar tend to be “desperate” for something. It does make me wonder why they are so money grabbing and quick to pawn off goods. Are they financially unstable? Is Soma, the God or Goddess, money grabbing? Is he materialistic? It’s all guessing games at the minute but I do have a feeling that Lili is not going to keep the money that Bell shared with her to herself. It’s either going to be taken away from her forcefully by this Soma God/Goddess or something else.

I think already Lili is warming up to Bell. He seems to attract girls without even trying. The stern looking Ryu has even stepped up and stopped the dude from fighting Bell. It was rather cool how she was able to detect that Lili was carrying the Hestia Knife without losing her cool. It was even cooler when she knocked Lili off balance with a single coin throw. Haha. I think it’s more than appropriate to say that I wouldn’t want to meet her in a dark alley. She demonstrated what she’s capable of!

Did Syr show a face a jealously when Bell shock Ryu’s hands? Speaking of Syr, I think she needs more air time. One can never get enough of her. Hestia is my favourite female from the show, but Syr provides a strong competition for first place. As does Aiz.

Back on subject-

How many ladies is Bell going to attract? Freya seems to be on the move again. I thought she was going to cool off for a while so she wouldn’t arouse suspicion. I guess she’s either too strong to not worry or couldn’t care less. It was rather cute but very, very humorous when Hestia called Bell a cheater after she saw him holding hands with Lili.

I would have liked to have seen more of Aiz in action. It looks as though she’s going to take down a boss level creature with her fellow familiar buddy, Riveria.

Bell and Aiz Artwork Endcard

I’m slightly gutted as I got the Volume Two Light Novel on pre-order on amazon and it was due to be released last week. However, it’s been back-ordered and is due to be released on 16th May. I’m not sure I should wait as I owe it to myself to read it asap. That and I just wanted to get ahead of the anime. Haha.

Thanks for reading. =)
