Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho Episode 3: Something about clothes


Okay, I think I've been approaching this series incorrectly. In the first episode, I didn't want to say that I got the feeling that this series was a lot like Spice and Wolf because I wasn't sure yet, but I think the combination of the first three episodes has convinced me enough. It's a similar concept where there's a clear goal in mind for the two main characters and they travel together to reach it, but each episode doesn't really give you much of a sense that they're making progress. Instead, the series focuses more on what's going on in the places they visit, except in this case it's more socially-focused rather than economically-focused. I don't think it's necessarily bad, but it's different than what I expected. In fact, it's arguably a good sign if I'm getting the same sense.

Uh huh, sure. So is this episode Mercenary-focused or are these introductions just random?

An entire introduction about the beastfallen and no mention that there are types. Or is this guy asking about the species of animal? If so, he's too blind to be doing his job.

I'm actually going to side with Zero on this one. Claiming that the witches are Mercenary's slaves saves them on the admission cost, so it's a practical idea. It's kinda messed up that Mercernary hits her for it later.

Aww...Mercenary's such a good guy. In case you haven't already figured it out. I'm not sure this was needed.

Goal!

I was completely expecting there to be some hidden value in the old outfit or something. This guy's thirst was a bit too suspicious...but it turns out he was just being horny. Go figure.

Surprisingly, Zero answers "yes" to this. I'm assuming it's meant to highlight her intense naivety because the alternative is that this is put here just to tell the audience about this beastfallen attribute. And they wouldn't do that, right? Of course, this conversation is immediately followed by a scene showing a beastfallen that looked a lot like he was going to eat a human, so who knows?

Sorry, I have to nitpick here. While this is a funny gag and all, it's clearly here just to be a gag. It's barely dark in the scene before this and the next scene is the group going down to eat dinner. If they had forced Albus to eat while tied up, then it might have had some continuity, but as it stands, it makes no sense to tie him up at this time.

This is new.

While I don't doubt that someone who hates witches as much as Mercenary does would know how to identify a witch, I'm curious how that works. What are the identifiers of a witch? I kinda doubt we'll get any explanation, but I'm still curious.

I honestly expected more from this fight given how much they hyped it up. When you break it down, Mercenary mostly stood still while the other guy was quipping.

Okay, I'm guessing that this face just means that Zero will sleep on Mercenary again, but holy crap that face looks really dangerous.

Bit of an overreaction, don't you think?
