Stuff happened this episode. Fun stuff, yes, but still just stuff.
We kicked things off with Laika and Flatorte bickering with each other in the morning. It sounded like they’re about to throw down but instead presented Azusa with cookies, asking her to judge which ones are best. Naturally Azusa declared a tie but of course they weren’t satisfied. Our favorite babies discovered the dragon ladies were grumpy because they craved red, juicy, tender, delicious meat. It’d been a while since they last had any. COINCIDENCE of all coincidences the guild receptionist arrived with a quest to take down wild boars. Azusa initially didn’t think much of it but once the receptionist explained the monsters dropped meat chunks for loot the dragon ladies insisted they go boar hunting.
At the forest Rosalie scouted ahead to find the boars. Flatorte raced toward them, forgetting Rosalie’s a ghost who could pass through branches and stuff. Flatorte got stripped but at first wasn’t worried because there didn’t appear to be anyone around. There of course were two ladies, later revealed to be Beelzebub and Fatla. Flatorte put her clothes back on but the boars kept stripping her. She was like “Screw it. Let’s do it bare!”
After some cute carnivore action the dragon ladies revealed there was another reason for their cookie competition. The winner got to sleep with Azusa in bed. Obviously it was the first time she heard about the bet but was like “Come to me, both of you!”. The ladies were both in paradise but couldn’t resist midnight munchies.
Fun first half. On to the other one.
While helping out at Halkara’s factory Azusa overheard the employees talk about the “Witch of the Highlands” performing miracles and stuff, all while not acknowledging said highland witch right there. There was an impostor witch. In their search for clues they found themselves in a pervy masochist bar. They got their food, drinks and “special” service from the sexy bartender who verbally abused them much to their delight. The bartender agreed to help in exchange for Azusa and Laika providing some service of their own. I personally only find lesbian masochists funny nowadays but I admit to chuckling when Laika, who didn’t know how to properly abuse them, got serious and impressed even Azusa who had no problem talking down the dummies.
After the bartender made good on her deal they found the impostor witch. It wasn’t difficult to prove she’s a fake so she tried to escape but failed.
Once caught the witch named Eno led them to her cave laboratory. She pretended to be the “Witch of the Highlands” to get attention and promote her goods. Azusa forgave her because she didn’t do any harm but wondered why she didn’t market her goods as herself. Basically she wanted to become famous…but wasn’t confident enough to do it as herself, hence why she first asked them to help promote her goods. Azusa had an idea.
The episode ended with a convention like scene, featuring Eno cosplaying as a magical girl character to more confidently promote her goods. I imagine some VTubers and people who feel more comfortable communicating as someone else can relate. Something like that I suppose.
Enjoyed the first half more but it was another fun episode overall.
