Here we are once again with yet another episode review from our Anime REvisited pick of 2020; Danmachi season one! We’re only an episode away from the halfway point of the season, so without further delay let’s get it on!
In the beginning of the episode you’ll notice that Lily is telling the viewer through her POV, as to why she hated adventurers. No matter where she went or what she did, her abusive familia always knew where she was. It was also at this time that she insisted that Bell was no different from any of the other adventurers that Lily encountered; which explains why she tried to steal his special knife from him in the previous episode. It seems like everyone else knew that something was up with Lily and the way she’s been acting, but maybe Bell sees something in her that the others may not.
Midway through the episode Bell and Lily head down to the tenth floor of the dungeon, as they face the monsters on that particular floor. Even though they were tougher than any of the previous monsters on the earlier floors, Bell was able to hold his own that’s to a sword that Lily gave him; as well as his Hestia knife. As more ogres show up Bell looks around for Lily; only to find out she stole his weapons and accessories and took off out of the dungeon. She unfortunately ran into her familia who took the accessories from her, as Lily’s familia found several giant demon ants (who killed one of the members of her familia) and used her as a decoy while they made their escape.
Just as the girl was about to be devoured Bell uses his new Fire Bolt skill and blasts several of the ants to ashes. After killing another horde of them Bell rescues Lily, but was upset that she didn’t leave her like the other adventurers did. Throughout her rant about all of the bad things she did to Bell, his response was that she (Lily) was the reason why he saved her. Hestia knew that there was something special about Bell…and he just proved it.
At the very end of the episode Bell reintroduced himself to Lily; stating that he’s looking for a supporter to travel with him to the dungeon. To that Lily responded with tears of joy, as the two of them were now OFFICIALY partners (now adding a new member to the Hestia Familia, of course). It appears things from this point on are about to get a little more interesting, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out!
Until our next review, stay safe and stay nerdy! 🙂
