They did change the opening to include Mary.
But why is Manato still there?
Are you trying to make me cry with the Opening ?
Gosh, the way he looks at the sky is way too evocative.
Me not liking this.
Yeah, I’m still not over his death, I probably won’t be able to forget him, although I think we’re not supposed too.
But I must say, there were some nice boobs/ass/muscles shots.
The sucker party has decided that they’re going to try to be nicer to Mary. The following day, during their gobelin hunt and despite Shihoru and Yume’s attempts, she’s still cold towards them. They manage to kill 4 gobelins but Ranta and Moguzo get hurt. Ranta
asks orders Mary to heal his little pussy wound but she decides to heal Moguzo’s injury first. Indeed, he was hurt on the head, so I’m guessing that’s not good, also he was bleeding quite a lot. Mary even apologizes for not healing him before when she remarks that the injury was kinda bad.
Haruhibro and the rest of the sucker crew desperately try to communicate with her without any success. She remains quite closed to discussion and doesn’t really want to explain why she fights and behaves this way. Although I have nothing to say about her fighting strategy, it’s true that she could at least explain them some stuff since she seems more knowledgeable about all the fighting thing.
Later on, they all go to the tavern to drink and they see Mary, entering the tavern alone. She sees them and seems to wait for a sign from them. Same thing on Haruhibro’s party side, which was waiting for her to come and sit with them. No one moves so she decides to sit alone at the counter. Like Yume said, she didn’t come but they didn’t tell her to come either. I think that must be hard for her to fit in a new group, even more when she’s replacing a their dead leader that everybody liked. So maybe she feels bad about that too.
During the night, Haruhibro, who might have some serious sleeping problems since he always wakes up during the nights, is sitting alone on a bench, wondering if he should be the new leader of the party. Manato did point him as the new leader but Haruhibro doesn’t really want to… According to him, it’s too much of a burden. However, it appears that he’s going to think about it twice after seeing Manato’s ghost basically asking him to take care of the sucker crew and saying that he trusts him.
God dammit Manato, why do you have to appear…
Do you like crushing my feelings Animu ?
Do you like it ?
Fuck you too Animu.
We were never friends anyway…
During their next gobelin trip Haruhibro notices that it would be more safe for everyone if Moguzo was actually wearing an helmet. Since he’s a warrior he has to attack frontally and therefore he puts himself in danger a lot. A complete armor would protect him from the gobelins’s attacks and then, he would be able to do a better job. Also, an helmet might reduce the risks of taking a fatal blow to the head. So yeah, Helmet= less chances to die… YES! It’s worth mentioning it. You never know with them…
It’s also time for my dear Haruhibro to notice that Mary, by staying at the back was actually protecting Shihoru. Even if she said that her staff wasn’t useful, she’s actually using it to smash the gobelins, like Manato did with his gay stick. The only difference being, she’s not using it in a offensive way but rather in a defensive way. Which is, you know, the role of a priest. When they separate ways, Haruhibro asks her if she wants to eat with them, but she says no. However, she was surprised when he questioned her on her reasons for being so formal with them. Seems to me like she’s starting to open to them.
Haruhibro then, decides to go and see Shinohara from Orion, the dude who was talking to Mary in the tavern, to learn more about her and her past. Shinohara tells them that it’s better to ask Hayashi since he was in the same party as Mary back them.
Basically Hayashi’s story is what happened to Haruhibro’s party. The priest was cheerful and carrying. He was helping everyone, going in the front lane, healing every little injury. The party was winning against weak ennemies so they started being over-confident. One day they weren’t cautious enough so the priest used all his magic and people died. The difference here is that, Mary was able to survive but 3 people in her party died whereas Manato was the only one to die. So Mary was able to learn from her mistakes but she was basically the same as Manato at the beginning.
I really wonder if Haruhibro understood all that, if he was able to make the connection between what happened to Mary and their own tragic experience. I’m also wondering if Mary realized that the sucker party is the same as her old gang. Which could explain why she doesn’t want to get involved with them since she might be afraid of losing some friends again. Well at least she learnt from her mistakes, we can’t say the same thing for the sucker gang. Oh well, I guess by hanging out with her, since they now know her past, they’ll eventually realize where their faults are. At least I hope so. It would really sucks if someone was going to die because of the same mistakes.
