Managing to fend off the knights, they arrive at Nelpha, entering its ruins inside the forest, filled with booby traps., who have been following the two, mistakes Ryner to be under a spell cast by Ferris, knowing nothing of their mission.

Her only further use to the family name is as the bearer a child, to be fathered by her own father. Lucile protects Ferris by murdering their parents. Sion asks Ryner to accompany him to Estabul, but Ryner declines the offer.
While visiting Arua and Kuku at the Eris residence, he senses a bad vibe coming from the family dojo. There Ryner, showing concern for Ferris, chances upon Lucile, who initiates a mild confrontation. Lucile warns Ryner not to mingle with Ferris, lest he meet his end. Milk later delivers Ryner a letter of invitation to her birthday party being celebrated the following day.

She locates him at an inn and wrecks the place out of anger, questioning of what Lucile said to him that caused him to storm out of town. Tiir, soon appears and subdues both of them, but that shortly is interrupted when Sion leads the army to attack Tiir with arrows. When Ryner and Ferris safely exit the inn, Sion stops the attack. Tiir offers Ryner an escape from a life of struggle, much to Ferris's dismay and Sion's understanding.19'The Directionless Ingrate'(: 行方知れずの恩知らず)November 11, 2010 ( 2010-11-11)November 12, 2010Both Ferris and Sion contemplate their relationships with Ryner.
After Riphal surprisingly asks Kiefer for her hand in marriage, Kuu arrives with a wounded Sui, who mentions the name of Ryner, troubling Kiefer. Gives Claugh a written synopsis of Ryner, explaining how and why he had been sent to train in a military academy regimen.
Tiir takes Ryner to a refuge for children who possess the Iino Doue. Tiir swears vengeance against the heartless humans who murder their kind. Ryner is reminded that although he appears to be monstrous, he is in truth a kindhearted person. However, he still ponders the reasons why he and other like him are born. Ryner later encounters Luke, who was sent to assassinate him.20'A Mind Not Filled With Despair'(: 絶望に埋め尽くされない心)November 18, 2010 ( 2010-11-18)November 19, 2010As Ryner fights for his life against Luke near the hideout, Ferris suddenly intervenes. Lir, who has been tailing Tiir, takes the opportunity to strike at the refugees sleeping in the hideout.

Lir tries to force Ryner to activate the Alpha Stigma using a crystallized eye, but Ryner is able to ward off the overwhelming temptation. Lir leaves when Luke joins forces with Ryner while Tiir takes the refugees to safety. Once Lir retreats, Luke also leaves. Ryner agrees to return to Roland with Ferris, but only under the condition that she is the one who takes his life if he were to lose control of the Alpha Stigma.21'Roland's Darkness'(: ローランドの闇)November 25, 2010 ( 2010-11-25)November 26, 2010After Riphal finds out that she is a spy, he chains Kiefer in an underground dungeon.
Ryner and Ferris return to Roland, only to be locked in Sion's office to help file many stacks of paperwork. Milk finally awakens from Froaude's spell, only to find that her parents, very dear to her, had been murdered. Ryner is very concerned that Sion is overworking himself. Froaude later confronts Sion, wondering why Ryner is still alive.
Sion retaliates by unleashing his full power.22'The Beast Called Alpha'(: αという名の獣)December 2, 2010 ( 2010-12-02)December 3, 2010, claiming to be Ryner's father, sedates Ryner in the garden, but he evades with the body when Lucile appears. Ferris, finding Lieral, fails to save Ryner from this mysterious duke. Trapped in a bizarre inner world, Ryner faces the Alpha, but, claiming to be his mother, temporarily dissolves it through emergence, telling him to pass through a large door, all before she is devoured by the Alpha.
He suddenly yet unexpectedly wakes up in a bed with his longtime companion. Lucile brings Sion into a room where he is to confront his alter ego. Riphal, releasing Kiefer from her cell, orders her to bring Ryner to him, fearing that Sion has already made plans to kill Ryner.23'The Last Day'(: 最後の日)December 9, 2010 ( 2010-12-09)December 10, 2010Ryner works his fingers to the bone for Sion's birthday celebration.
When he later gets the chance to ditch the office, he runs into Milk and remembers that she gave him an invitation for her party days ago. Claugh has an idea to prepare fireworks for the upcoming festival, despite it could take six months to make it happen. When the party begins at night, fireworks burst into the sky, as even Milk has a birthday of her own.
As the party dies down, Ryner and Sion share a moment of reflection in their views of changing the world, but the nostalgia turns into fiery conflict.24'A Distant Day's Promise'(: 遠い日の約束)December 16, 2010 ( 2010-12-16)December 17, 2010Sion is consumed by the spirit of, as he nearly takes Ryner's life. Iluna comes out of Ryner, who has the spirit of within him, to prevent Sion from killing Ryner out of selfish ambition, but Lucile puts Ryner to sleep after Iluna disappears. Sion hesitates to kill Ryner when confronting the mad hero.
When Ryner then finds himself in prison, Ferris helps him narrowly escape peril. Ryner vows to save his friend from the turmoil he endures on the twisted path to achieve his dream.References. DVD (in Japanese). Retrieved September 18, 2010. July 2, 2010.

Upcoming Events EventLocationStart05-1805-1905-2005-2105-2105-2205-2405-2505-26A Brief History of07-01.Indicates an official reddit meet-up is taking place at this event. Well, as the title says. I finished the anime, and all I can think is. Fuck.I don't usually do post-anime write ups like this, but in this case I feel such a strong mixture of various emotions, that I can't help it. My apologies if this gets muddled or unclear, though I will try to keep my rambling to a minimum.So, to start.
The beginning of the anime I found completely boring. From Ryner's annoyingly lazy attitude, to his interactions with Ferris with her constantly hitting him or talking about dumplings, I just did not find it enjoyable. But I pressed on anyway, because I have not really finished a single anime in a while, and I felt I couldn't give up on this one, too. And after too many episodes that felt only loosely connected, and where all of the drama or tensions was constantly undercut with ridiculously silly and implausible banter or stilted and repetitive jokes, I finally got to some interesting material.And don't get me wrong, although this post is mainly a rant, the story does pick up steam and start getting very interesting. Particularly in the buildup to the midseason, and then in the second half.
Unfortunately it does this at the expense of going completely off the rails toward the end. Plot points, characters, mystical and mythological references and macguffins are thrown at the viewer with no preparation or explanation. Characters scheme and shift allegiances and then switch back, and speak in vague and ambiguous ways to purposefully taunt the viewer. But despite it all, it is quite interesting, and even now I find myself wanting to know more about the story and what will happen next.And as time goes on, the relationship between Ryner and Ferris improves as well.
I found that in the second half she hit him slightly less, and showed her dere side several times, which helped endear her to me. Still, all things considered, I find that the pacing of the anime made her one of the more unlikable tsundere I've encountered - and I typically love the tsundere archetype.But you know, abusive tsundere, characters that try to gloat to one another about how very smart they are, obscure and poorly explained plot points. I've seen all of these things before, although, admittedly, not very often in this combination.
What really rankled me about this anime is how all of these things occur in the most schizophrenic anime ever. In an anime where the story constantly seesaws back and forth between mass murder, warfare, child abuse and persecution, and silly shenanigans about characters wanting to take naps, have dumplings, and trying to force the king to eat or sleep properly, or plotting birthday parties for him. Nothing feels real or is given appropriate weight, characters simply waltz in to the king's office at any time to disturb him, subordinate officers talk among themselves while being given orders, there's a loose harem plot line, multiple vaguely to fairly rapey scenes that can only be considered some form of fan service, an unbelievably high pitched loli character, etc. It feels like the show constantly wants to be taken seriously and present itself as a real and legitimate fantasy tale, but at the same time throws all of this nonsense and filler garbage at the viewer, ruining most if not all of the dramatic tension it has created.Beneath all of the fluff, there is the skeleton of what could be a great story. I have a feeling that if I read the source material, I would find that it tones down most of the antics and shenanigans, and presents the story in a more coherent manner, one that would not cause me to grasp my hair in frustration. But for whatever reason, the anime did not go in that direction at all.
And considering how it is a 24 episode anime, with what felt like a ton of pointless padding, I can't forgive it for leaving so much unanswered. Ryner's father, Ferris' brother, the whole deal with Sion's multiple personalities, the matter of the Hero and the Goddesses, and the Devil, and all the various other elements that the show haphazardly introduced in the final quarter, only to leave completely unexplained.I'm just.
Really, really, really disappointed. Because it's one thing to watch an obviously trashy show, and get exactly what you expected.
I know I'm late on this answer.To be honest loftlh was probably one of my most favorite animes ever and I LOVE the characters incredibly much.So you can imagine HOW disappointed I was when I finished the anime and realized that I wouldn't find any answers to all the questions because the anime basically ended in the middle of the story. I think, if these idiots (sorry) would've actually made a proper ending for this anime it would have been my absolute favorite anime ever but, in fact, all I feel next to my love for Sion and the other characters, is pure disappointment.I can't understand how anybody feels like this was a good point to end the anime without actually answering ANY questions which came up about eg ferris' brother nor actually give a hint what will happen in the following storyline. 'safe sion' WOW. That helps me so much.Geeez I can only rant about this ending.I still love the anime incredibly much. Lol, no worries, I'm happy to see that even months later someone actually still read my writing and found it to resonate with them!What you're saying makes a lot of sense.
I was initially disappointed with the characters, and the extreme tsundere traits of Ferris, but she and the MC both grew on me after a while, and so did the world in general, as it kept getting more and more interesting and complex rather than more understandable. I like that in a story. But then it just cut right off, with no explanation.
Legend Of The Legendary Heroes Spells
Made everything feel like a prologue, to some larger story that's never coming.So yeah, extremely disappointing, and all the more so because of how good other parts of it were. Haha, really? I found Re:Zero made lots, lots more sense in its storyline and pacing and more or less consistent atmosphere. This was downright schizophrenic, going back and forth in a way that was utterly bewildering.And yeah, the universe did seem very dark and brutal.
That's why it was a shame that it wasn't just prevented from reaching its full potential by how silly the comedy was, but by how no one seemed to ever act like their station, either. On one hand all of these series things are happening, but on the other you have Kings running off to do all kinds of things, people barging into offices, high ranking officials just showing up all over the place with no retinue or followers or assistants, etc. It was like all the characters were firmly aware of being in an anime, and acted accordingly, rather than like real people.And lol at Izuchi. They used that spell a lot, which is kind of a shame. Considering Ryder is the greatest magician in Roland, I would have liked to see him using a lot of different spells, but instead he seemed to have a half dozen or so. Well for a starter the edgyness of rezero is far outclassing the simple gore and D4rk of DnYnD, rezero felt way too exagerated and thus unatural. Rezero's events seems to happen way too concussively and way too conveniently in order.
