    Somehow? He said Bojje's power was stolen from him. He was probably also meant to be a giant, but they took his size and strength. And possibly also his hearing.

    He said "Kage also was cursed somehow".

    The somehow doesn't apply to Boj.

    Spunky.

    I wonder if they'd return hearing/talking to Boji, if it's indeed curse-based. Would kinda ruin the show for deaf people watching it ('see, it's a happy end because he's no longer deaf!!1'), so i hope he won't. But I don't think they will. Maybe Boji learns about it, but when given the choice, he gives up on it in favor of helping someone else - that'd be fitting of his nature.


    As for 'we found out Bosse was an actual giant' - duh ...

    I would also be dissapointed if Boji regained hearing and speech with some kind of magic plot. That would be the end of his character's roots.
    I wonder about Kage's curse. Maybe something to do with how everyone he cares for he gets to lose ?

    Well, sometimes in anime, characters are just big for no reason.

    Episode 6:

    I forgot: Who ordered the killing of Boji? Was it the mirror or Daida?

    Anyway, another great episode. This really feels like such a nice conglomeration of Zelda, Ghibli and shounen. I've love to play a video game based on this franchise.

    It was implied to be Daida, but the show didn't actually show him giving the order. Daida was all "You voted against my brother? You can't be trusted. I have something you must do for me in order for me to accept you again." but then it cuts away, and Doumas tries to kill Bojji, so you're to assume that's what Daida ordered. But it might be a misdirect.

    That's what I meant. Because Daida appears to be another "deeper than thought" character (all of them are, kinda, lol) and him ordering to kill his brother doesn't quite fit what we saw in these past episodes.

    episode 7:

    this is so fun. Real nice, classic fantasy training arc. And I can't wait to see the results of Boji's training. I figured he'd be using some lightweight-swing weapon, but I have no idea what he could have used to split a giant rock. Woohoo.

    And damn, Daida seems to be gone, now taken over by the spirit of Bosse's. That makes me really sad.

    Now I don't know if that food in EP4 that Boji's thumbed up to Dhomas was really worth the five yelp stars!

    My guess is the 'weapon' is something that somehow stores energy, perhaps via dodging, and unleashes it later as a single hit.

    Cute that Kage is cool with doing chores while Boji trains. I also like that the trainer is pretty, but not stereotypically effeminate. That's a nice subversion of expectation.

    New ep


    So Boji lost almost everything to his father because of that pact.
    It's strange he was not stillborn.

    I'm probably wrong but for some reason I feel like Boji got that rock spliting move the moment Bosse stole Daida's body.
    I'm getting that idea from Bosse's power boost right when Boji was born.
    But I wonder why that demon would let some power leak. Probably some hidden rules, eventually we'll get some explanation later.

    I guess the true end is Boji ruling after he breaks Bosse's pact and saves Daida.

    Why the heck should Daida be saved? He tried to assassinate Bojji, while Bosse created a kingdom for Bojji.

    Spunky.

    So Bosse is gonna have sex with his wife in the body of their son, huh? ;>

    Aaanyway, I'm pretty sure that Daida never ordered Boji to be assassinated. That must have been Kagami/mirror, it totally suits her character.

    I'm just glad that Daida still exists in some way, so there's hope he'll return.

    Making us wait another week to find out about Boji's new skills is torture, though >_< Assuming it's not complete bs outta nowhere, I assume his skills are related to his swiftness and speed, something that he can build up momentum with. like a chain and ball-weapon. Or he got a magic glove that lets him store power until he chooses to release all the stored power at once, considering he's skilled enough to hit his opponents, just too weak to make an impact with a single hit. A magic glove could store the hit power from every little punch and accumulate it to some enormous power. I'm trying to remember what anime/videogame hat something similar, because this is not my original idea, lol. Didn't Knuckle from HXH have something like that, where every little hit would remove some of his opponents nen and when all nen is gone, the opponent collapses?

    Bosse is kinda of the most evil guy atm though, isn't he. Stealing his son's powers. Now stealing Daida's body, even though he told the devil "I didn't plan on living long anyway". And he wants to kill Hiling, too. The only character I'm curious about now is Kagami, because so far she has been one-dimensional evil, but this show has proven that no character is what he/she appears to be at first glance. Hm.

    Mirror woman is the one who wants to kill Healing. There's probably a good reason for it too, like Healing's family doing something to her and her own.

    It was confirmed that Daida was the one who ordered Bojji's assassination. Jaime said so this episode. Even if it was the mirror telling him to do it, it's pretty evil to just do it anyway, especially because he refused to drink the potion, something the mirror also told him to do.

    Spunky.

    After seeing the state of his child, Bosse decided to make a kingdom so he'd live without want. Whether that was in service of his paternal affection, pity, or as a means to prepare his next vessel (and how much control of Bosse is ceded to the demon at the time) is up for debate.

    For the Mirror to call Boji the most powerful in the world is suspect at best. The mechanism at play is obscured. Since it cannot be physical strength, I presume it means the general 'formidability' that anime often uses "strength" as a surrogate for, but the jump is too quick for me to buy it. That scene was necessary to inform the characters that Boji is still alive, but there's no tension in this reveal yet without Boji having a clear next step or goal. I'm surprised that wasn't touched on in this episode, instead focusing on the Bosse kingdom storylines.

    Glad Bebin is still with us.

    Daida's posessor calls himself Bosse, but I don't know enough about the character of Bosse to determine if what we have now is a full copy of his personality/soul, a compromised revenant, or some demon-infused variant, but it seems at least somewhat evil and territorial (ordered Domas to destroy the demon keep under the castle).

    I'll welcome Hokuro into the big four. The more training arcs, the better!

    Doubtful. He's planning to have her killed, after all.

    Episode 9:




    Bosse looks pretty whole to me, with complete memories and everything.

    Healing is great. She seems to be the typical queen villain but also shows unexpected courage, tenacity, and love.

    Looks like Bosse expects Bojji to come back and beat him in order for Mirror's plans to finally come to a halt. I believe his ties with Mirror were already there even before he made that pact with the red devil, so he can't simply stop at this point, yet at the same time he has affection for his wife and children holding him back from simply rushing toward his goal.

    Spunky.

    I have no idea what's Bosse's plan. He makes a calm, mindful impression, yet he also sends killer monsters to his wife and takes over his son's body. Either he is unexpectedly cowards and simply cannot decide who to side with, or Mirror is more powerful than we've seen and Bosse simply can't openly go against her. Or there's a connetion to the devil thing.
