Rokka no Yusha Episode 8 Review

Rating: 4/5 curious clouds Crop_4 CloudsExcited Transparent

Tensions escalate into life and death matches when Adlet runs into Hans back at the temple. Maura suspects Adlet while Flamie decides to play along. Nashetania suspects Hans while Goldof just seems to be apprehensive of anyone not the princess. Chamot is so arrogant in her own swamp abilities that she has no qualms about killing everyone except Maura. Rokka no Yusha Episode 8 (3)When Adlet makes a hard bargain against Hans mid-battle, he nearly loses the wager and his life in attempting to reveal the seventh Brave. I’m quite interested in Hans’s back story. While he seems as calculating as the more rational ones among the Braves, he also seems to hold strictly to his own set of feline assassin ideals…

Flamie and Maura get along well enough during the investigation while Nashetania scolds Goldof for letting his jealousy get the better of him in this dire situation. When Chamot runs into Adlet and Hans, she attacks them and the two pair up against the Saint of Swamps. I’m curious as to what will happen when the others return to the temple. Rokka no Yusha Episode 8 (23)As well, I wonder if any one of the Braves in that group can actually beat Chamot. The series has been stuck in the fog for quite a few episodes now and I get the feeling Rokka no Yusha is aiming for a second season because the issue with the seal and the mystery behind the seventh or possibly eight conspirator is looking gravely over everyone’s heads.

To be honest I’d appreciate more of a focus on the temple combat rather than jumping around to the other Braves who aren’t even directly involved in the conflict but we’re left on a pretty great cliff-hanger for this week’s episode.
