Greetings nerds and nerdettes! We’re back with another episode review from our Anime REvisited Special title; The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter! Noir finally has the money he needs to get into the Hero Academy, but what happens after that? We’ll tell you!
Picking up right where the previous episode left off, Noir and Emma paid their entrance fee for the Hero Academy and are now full-fledged students. After noticing the Duke’s daughter walk by him and Emma, Noir noticed that there was something dark – a curse known as the 16th Death Curse was placed on her; meaning that on her 16th birthday the curse would kill her. With that thought etched in his mind Noir and Emma entered into their classroom with their ranking pinned on the right side of their chest. When it comes to cliques and social groups (especially when it comes to social class), Baronets are at the bottom of the barrel. In Noir’s case; he was treated like crap the moment he set foot in class.
After all of the greetings were in order, the class along with Emma and Noir were outside in what looked to be the school’s courtyard where their teacher; Ms. Elna, was waiting. At first glance you can already tell she’s got a bit of Yandere/Sadistic side with a touch of cockiness only an anime teacher can give you. Ms. Elna called Noir out first as part of the class’ first lesson; the back-step technique. At Lv. 236 Noir already knew she was a powerhouse, but with his ‘Get Creative’ skill anything was possible. Noir was knocked around at first but then Elna told him that if he used the back-step technique, she’ll give him a prize. We’re not telling you what the ‘prize’ is, so you’ll have to watch that part of the episode to find out.
After class was over Noir and Emma meet up with Lola; who disappeared on-sight as soon as she spotted Noir because she didn’t have a lot of makeup on, even though he thinks she looks pretty without it. He talks to her about the situation going on with the Duke’s daughter and her 16th year curse, and offers up a way that might work. Noir would need the help of a Cleric who specializes in removing curse-based spells, and even though Lola told him that this decision would come with its own set of challenges, Noir was determined to meet her Cleric friend and rid the daughter’s evil curse.
There’s a quick post-credits scene where Ms. Elna appears to be working on some papers when Noir walks in and notices her shoulder is bothering her. He offers to give her a message but only if he can ‘satisfy’ her. What follows afterwards would cause Emma’s face to turn beet red with embarrassment, and for others to assume that some ‘risky business’ is happening behind closed doors.
Welp, that wraps up this episode review! We’ve got more content coming later this week so stay tuned! 😉
