Oh lord… I wasn’t prepared
This week’s episode opens with boobs girl and Manabro coming back for the town. Manabro stops and starts feeding birds like he’s some kind of Disney Princess.
Shihoru wants to try but she’s like ” ugh oh no I can’t, plz Manato teach me how to feed birds”. She’s also scared of them and falls on the ground when a pigeon lands on her while making squeaky noises like it’s some kind of hentai stuff.
GOD DAMMIT UR AFRAID OF PIGEONS !
NO WONDER UR USELESS, YOU’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO KILL A GOBELIN IF YOU’RE AFRAID OF A HOLY MOTHERFUCKING PIGEON!
BUUUUUT Manato catches her and they both fall on the ground like every crappy shoujo manga ever. I face-palmed at that moment. seriously anime ?
The next day, our loser crew is back to chase gobelins. They all learned new skills. I don’t really feel like explaining them in detail. But! Ranta got his demon that he named Zodiaco, we didn’t see it though.
They’ve become a nice party and are now able to kill 3 gobelins at the time. Since I don’t know, it’s maybe Christmas or something Manato compliments everyone. Like “oooh Yume ur so brave”, “OOh Moguzo ur strong” and “oooh boobs girl you want to help us”.Yeah, he says: “you learned magic because you wanted to help us right ? “
No kidding man, you bet she wanted to help.
I mean, she has to, she sucks at it but at least she’s trying.
That’s funny, Shihoru is the only one who’s compliment didn’t sound as nice as the others, like ” Shihoru .. aaaa… At least you’re trying right ? “. Also, Haruhibro did not receive any compliment… Why ? Maybe because Manato is so gay for Haruhibro that he’s afraid everybody will notice if he starts complimenting him fufufu.
They all finish eating and start leaving the area when Haruhibro spots an enemy before Manabro and saves his ass. However he is touched by arrows twice. Manabro heals him and they try to escape. There’s also random gobelins which start popping all around the place, and they are quite threatening. All the crew manage to escape, Manato is hurt by an arrow but he says he’s fine.
I KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING …
Yeah…Manato collapses in the forest and can’t manage to heal himself. They transport him to his guild so that Gandalf the elf can save him but he can’t cuz Manato is already dead.
THIS ISN’T FAIR
HE DIES SAYING SORRY TO HARUHIBRO
I DON’T ACCEPT IT
IT’S TOO SOOON
WTF EPISODE 4
I HATE YOU
U WERE MANABRO TILL THE END
They have to incinerate him because of some bullshit magical reason and it costs money but Haruhibro wants to pay cuz Manabro is their friend. I don’t usually Yaoi ship but those two were great together. And Manato didn’t even had the chance to compliment Haruhibro… AND AND HARUHIBRO spreads Manabro’s ashes in the wind and there’s birds and there’s music and this is some poetic bullshit but I don’t give a single fuck cuz I’m sitting there crying like the pussy I am, it’s clannad all over again for me. God dammit fuck that shit, I need pizza now. Why did you put sad music ? I’m a sucker for sad music, gosh and they are standing there saying nothing, just crying inside. I swear, I’m gonna die of dehydration. AND everybody is sad, even the Reiji guy and his team, even the pink hair dude from the beginning. I SWEAR I’m cancelling my Gobelin defense movement, fuck them, fuck this world of shit fantasy, GIMME MANATO BACK I’M SO PISSED RIGHT NOW!
Let me get this straight, Manato was the best member of the team, he was the leader and he was so good at it. I don’t even want to imagine how screwed they are now. He was mapping the area, healing them, he was collecting information when they were sleeping, he was managing the money, he was nice to everyone supporting and complimenting them, like the freaking mom of the team. Plus he was fighting along them smashing gobelins with his gay stick instead of staying behind. I don’t really know much about Rpg fighting techniques but it seems that the priest, the healing role has to stay behind right ? At the end he did not have enough strength to heal himself. If it was anybody else they would have been fine by now but for lord sake it had to be Manato…
Don’t get me wrong, I love when there is no plot armor for the characters, when anyone can die just like that, especially in series that want to be realistic. Well, actually, series that want to show realistic things happening in a unrealistic environnement. I absolutely love Shingeki no Kyojin because of that. I love when there is drama, that’s what I meant when I said that I love crying… I really enjoys when a series makes me cry even if that’s not really complicated if you ask me…. Okay, okay, sometimes the drama is a bit forced but I don’t really care.
In this episode’s case, I don’t have the feeling that everything was forced. Shihoru was almost crying in silence, Haruhibro wasn’t understanding what was happening and the other ones were silent. There was no ” MAAAAAAAAAAAAANAAATOOO I WILL AVENGE YOU MY FRIEND GYYYAAAAAAHHH. I WILL KILL ALL THE GOBELINS AAAAAHH” and then he turns into a motherfucking giant gobelin ready to whip their asses. Yeah, no stuff like that.
This scene just felt so real for me. I don’t think they spent too many time grieving Manato. I mean come on, he was a friend! They spent an entire episode about grieving that motherfucking gobelin so it’s just normal for them to cry a friend.
I feel like this show prefers describing the emotions of the protagonists rather than showing us epic fights, and I like that. I want drama so I’m happy with the show right now. If I wanted to see epic fights I’ll go and watch SAO. I don’t care if they’re going to spend 2 episodes talking about Manato’s death cuz you know, that’s a big thing. Everybody should be shocked after seeing a person dying in front of you, especially your friend. Lol I have the impression that I’m repeating the same thing I said about the gobelin in episode 2. BUT I DON’T CARE . IT’S NOT THE SAME THING OKAY ?! IT’S MANABRO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT! Also, I feel quite guilty for doubting him all this time. I mistook the death flags for an “here’s a traitor” sign… I’m such an awful detective.
I’m not blaming anyone in particular for Manato’s death. I feel like it’s everybody’s fault. They were too careless. They fought that they will be okay because they had become stronger so they let their guard down. Too bad there is no re spawn button this time.
Next week : looks like they are going to meet a blue hair girl. Yeah, another girl … uray. I hope she isn’t annoying. If she’s annoying and is in the team to replace Manato I swear I’m not going to go easy on her. That might be unfair but I don’t care, they took Manato away, they have to be prepared.
Here’s my tribute to Manabro, the boss of da game:
