Disclaimer: I don’t feel like pretending I don’t know what is going to happen, and writing a section without spoilers and then one with them, as I’ve played the game. This post will contain massive spoilers to the whole plot. If you don’t want to be spoiled, then don’t read on. I won’t spoil anything simply for the sake of spoiling it, no needless spoilers, but they will be there. Final warning.

This episode was alright. Right now more than anything I’m concerned about the pacing that the anime has. I’m not sure if it’s good or bad but overall that would be my concern for a series like this. There were so many moments in the game that really weren’t all that important for overall plot, which I personally found great. However there were also a lot of moments that weren’t plot related but just focused on a character. Not even mentioning the H scenes, there were some important character development moments. Now either they try and include these moments and are rushed to do the real plot, which won’t turn out as well, or they try and focus on the plot and don’t get the characters. Either way I don’t think it’s going to end up being the full content you would find in the game just because they are small innocent moments that would be hard to make fit well into the anime.

I am curious as to if Morgan is going to “jump” Arawn on the boat in the next episode, as the preview does show them on the boat. I have a feeling that the anime is going to shy away from anything even hinting at it. I don’t expect them to show it, but I’m guessing they are also going to go the route saying it didn’t happen, which is too bad because I quite like Morgan. Still, seriously though it’s at this point that she declares herself “Wife #2” Her being his wife is actually VERY important later on in the story. Because she is his wife, she breaks Arthur’s arm in the forest, and because of the arm being broken Taliesin doesn’t fight Arthur. Arthur does this on purpose for a reason, so they still have to have Morgan kind of declare herself his wife.
