Apologies for the lateness. Now let’s do this.
So, I can’t say I was a fan of the early introspection of this ep.
There are ways of doing it right, but we're kind of leaning towards the boring side here. Akatsuki’s personal conflict has occupied a long time. In a way, it has overstayed its welcome.
I mean, there is also her bond with Lenessia but I haven’t felt that one enough to really care.
Anyway, the final moral of the story is “You can’t take on everything by yourself”.
That’s right Akatsuki. You have friends. You can all depend on each other and all that warm and fuzzy stuff.
Not sure how to feel about that. I mean yeah teamwork and all that.
But don’t dis the path of the solo, you know?
Anyway, we also have some other stuff going on.
The world is changing.
Elder Tales was already a weird, fantasy world, but it seems to be undergoing changes on top of that.
For one, people who do not have the chef subclass can cook now.
And the world is getting bigger.
And flavor text is no longer just flavor.
Which kind of bites Crusty in the ass when his guild mate’s scythe starts acting out and… disappears him.
That’s going to be a thing.
I mean, Crusty is kind of a big deal. Not only is he the leader of one of the biggest guilds, he’s also one of the most capable members of the Round Table.
Not a guy you want to lose.
