Now, normally with reviews I start off by saying some brief thoughts and then proceed to then talk about the episode. This time it will be a bit different. Normally I don’t like to talk about the time length between reviews and whatnot. But, for once I am. It has been a month since I did a review for this show, and the show now ended. I will be covering the next six episodes in one maybe two posts, then the final episode. This is just to get the series completed. As for what caused me to get this behind on reviews, I will cover in an update post that is forthcoming. Without further ado, let’s get right into it.

The Plot:

Things turn back to normal after the previous case that involved Waver. He is back to be the teacher to the students that adore and annoy him a bit too much. Either way, life is rather calm.

Yet something troubles Gray, she knows something is bothering his sensei. So, she asks his little sister about the Holy Grail War he took apart of. Which turns into Gray doing her a favor and being dressed in adorable clothing for twenty minutes.

But, after being dressed up, the sister and her run into Luvia. It turns out with how the last case ended, Luvia now owns the store and did a bit of magic to enhance the inner shopaholic in people to spend more money there.

After getting a moment of piece from Luvia, Gray is told about the Holy Grail War. That is until the three of them are thrown into an alternate space where they may not leave.

This prompts the three of them to try to figure out how to get out of the situation, which ultimately has them thinking how Waver would do things. The three of them being in there, well, excluding Gray everyone has a reason to target the other two. But, Luvia thinks it has something to do with the enchantment that she put on the place.

After a wrestling match against security the three are freed.

But the episode does not end there. It turns out something valuable to Waver was taken by the Rail Zepplin, a fragment that he kept from Rider. Thus, he asks Gray to help him get it back to end the episode.

Overall Thoughts:

This episode certainly was a nice way to set up the second half of the series. It gave more motive for Gray to go and search for answers on her own, and really throw more weight on her shoulders of keeping her mentor safe. It also created a problem that had three characters that haven’t had too much screen time together be together to solve an issue. Plus seeing Luvia wrestle things into oblivion is always interesting to see.

But the mystery this week was weak. Although perhaps there was not really a mystery, it was mostly a means to an end. This episode felt more filler like, and while being enjoyable not much of it holds too much weight to the series besides giving some character development and setting up the plot.

Overall this episode was okay, it certainly was rather enjoying though.

Overall Enjoyment 80/100

As always, feel free to comment your thoughts on the episode or series, just keep in mind of spoilers for the series, and spin-offs too, even though I sort of do that already.

As always I hope you enjoyed.
