I don’t think this show knows how to not be cute. How evil is Mahoutsukai No Yome episode 11?
We got more on Elias, this episode. Lindel is pretty chatty when he wants to be. He continued the story about young Elias, but this part of the story got a little darker. He and Elias had been starving so they traveled to a town to trade healing for food. Elias had a less than friendly appearance and hid in Lindel’s shadow to avoid being spotted. Sounds good, right? The only problem was that a shadow with red eyes still stands out.The villagers promptly drove them out of town without giving them food.
After all that, Elias tells Lindel he thinks he’s eaten humans before. As you can imagine, this alarms Chise. Chise ask Lindle how he responded to that unsettling news and Lindle continues the story. In the story, Lindel quickly changes the subject by telling Elias that if he tries different foods he’ll forget the taste of humans. Okay, that part wasn’t cute, but keep reading. He then eats some soup Elias made. He later reveals after tasting the soup he was no longer afraid. The soup was horrible which is why Elias never cooks. Chise had the best response to this news.
After the story had finally ended It was back to wand-building for Chise. Turns out wand-building is a long process. Chise mostly carved a piece of wood this entire episode. Lindel also cut her hair to use for the core of her wand. At this point, I just want to see how this thing is going to look. Chise is only starting the wand. Lindel is supposed to finish it. It’s one of their traditions or something like that.
I’m still wondering what she’ll be able to do with this wand. We saw here cleanse a giant blob with a temporary wand before. Will this be more powerful than that? If it is, what on earth will they be going up against?
I would say this episode was about as evil as a Super Villain! This show is one of the better ones this season. If you like cute anime, why don’t you check out Chris’s reviews for Konohana Kitan? It sounds like it’s adorable from what he tells me. Though this is apparently the superior series in terms of storytelling.
Well, That’s all I have for you today. Thank’s for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
