Happy New Year guys!! It is now officially 2021, and with a new year (hopefully) comes new goals and aspirations! As for us at D&A Anime Blog and D&A Studios, we’ve got some upcoming grand news too, but right now we’re going to wrap up the remaining episodes from our Anime REvisited pick; Danmachi season one. Episode nine begins now!
It’s official; Bell is now a Level 2 adventurer! With that comes a boost in his stats as well as a new skill called “Argonaut” which has a backstory about a boy who wanted to become an adventurer. It is also in this episode that we meet a new member of the Hestia familia known as Welf Crozo; whose family is famous for making magic swords but no longer does. Not a lot is told about how the Crozo name became tarnished and worthless, but an event happened (sometime off screen and before the start of the series) that caused Welf’s name to end up that way; worthless and tarnished.
In spite of Welf’s reputation Bell liked his work when it came to armor and gear, so in exchange for becoming a member of the Hestia familia, Welf used the Minotaur horn that Bell got from defeating the Minotaur in the previous episode to make him a new weapon.
So in a nutshell; this episode was pretty much an introduction to Welf Crozo. He did make a cameo appearance in the very first episode, but you really don’t hear much about him until episode nine. As a blacksmith Welf is skilled with a sword himself, as he journey’s with Bell and Lily to the thirteenth floor of the dungeon at the end of the episode. Although he may not look like it judging by his personality and Jiraiya-like mannerisms (minus the pervert-ness), Welf gets along well with Bell and Lily during combat; although it might take a little while for her to warm up to him. What’s next for Bell, Lily, and Welf? That’s on the next review! Until then, stay safe and stay nerdy my friends! 😉
