    I wonder if Ariane's mother could quite comprehend Arc's true power only with that duel she completely dominated. All things considered, Arc only probably used 5% of his true power, or rather even less. But then again, she's over 200 years old, pardon me, 170 years, so she ought to have enough wisdom to understand Arc took the duel as a pure swordsmanship thing. She should be able to understand more than Ariane. In the end Ariane hasn't seen anything yet, either, though she does know Arc is versatile.

    This did show the difference between hacking and slashing in a game and true skills with a sword. It's surprisingly something not too many isekai bother to address. But then again, if you have the typical cheat skills of an isekai MC, it doesn't really matter.

    Despite having the body is a skeleton, Arc must still be able to feel things; the bath didn't look like only a spiritual experience for him.

    The point was that, even with Arc's massive speed and strengh, he still swings a sword like his player.

    Yeah. But since he has all kinds of game skills, spells, and power attacks, he's still overpowering. It was a good sign he'd like to learn real swordsmanship on top of the game swordsmanship he currently possesses. Of course it makes sense since he is pretty careful and doesn't like to underestimate opponents. He doesn't even know just how powerful he is in that world. He knows he's much above ordinary thugs and guards and knows what a young elf warrior is capable of. He also has some idea of the close combat skills of an older elf warrior, but little else. Yeah, and he knows he can beat some random monsters no problem. He has no idea of the dragon lord, though.

    I actually have no idea what other skills Arc has. In that spar, he only used dimension move once, and retaliated with his poor swordsmanship afterwards. Realistically, if he just didn't want to get hit, he could just spam dimension move like he did when fighting the basilisk. Maybe he has a ton of other magic spells that could just AOE pawn the elf mom, but there wouldn't be a point in using those in a sword spar.

    Spunky.

    Yeah, we don't know what he has and it's possible he doesn't quite know that himself. He was quite baffled when he figured out he's basically a fusion class (warrior, knight, monk, priest, summoner, magician, sorcerer). Since it's a high level character (actually max level if you check the first ep), it has to have a whole bunch of skills and powers. What kind of game would it have been otherwise? He already knows he can use priest, knight, and magician class powers. In fact it's fairly interesting that despite being max level holy knight, he can't somehow natively fight with a sword like a real pro. It feels like magic is more forgiving for an isekaied person than physical skills.

    I wonder what's the deal with Big Sis's betrothal? Is that set up to be some scumbag to save her from, or some off-hand characterization to introduce her with?

    Also, always dry off your spirit animals properly after giving them a bath to prevent hypothermia.

    Arc's fights so far have been spamming Blood Hound Step and Moonveil to great effect. Skills aside, we saw the difference in reaction between Arc's reaction to a surprise rear attack vs the mum's reaction.

    Not sure, but it's setting the trend of strong female elves marrying and settling down while the trainees go save captured comrades..

    Seemingly, "dark elves" are just pink haired elves.

    Episode 7


    - - - - - -



    At least Arc, by chance, resurrected a good member of royalty, not a rotten one. By the looks of it, the odds were against that.

    I feel like Arc has been artificially nerfed by his own attitude. Sure, he's not 100% accustomed to his body and the idea of living in that world, but considering he does have a lot of power, to the point of undoubtedly being OP at least to a certain degree (right in this episode a spell he could spam multiple times was viewed as a divine miracle by a princess), it would make sense he would still get things done, even if he went too far. So, his sudden "I don't know what to do and how to use my powers" stance is annoying and worrisome. It would make more sense that he would cause a lot of unnecessary damage to the surroundings by using too much power. Since it's power he can use freely.

    He is clearly OP. The reason he "lost" to the elf mom was because it was a training session. Her attacks did NOTHING to his armor, just like those wolves. He was doing kendo, and he naturally lost to a better swordsman due to points on hits.

    But actual life or death fights are another story. Honestly, I don't even know if he can be killed. He is a fucken skeleton...

    Regeneration resurrecting people is a truly dumb skill name.

    Loli Ninja is back!

    Spunky.

    I wasn't talking about the bout with the elf mama anymore. I already addressed that earlier. I had no particular problem with that friendly match. I was talking about the fight against the wolves. He was faring worse than Ariane. And later the fight against the assassins and noting several of them escaped, despite the pack of wolves getting involved as well. He has shown signs of this earlier as well, but it's fair to say he just wasn't so used to the world and it didn't matter so much back then. Now it mattered, though. Especially with the assassins. He decided to save the princess but let a portion of the killers escape, possibly to try again later or at least make a report on the interference to their employer.

    For whatever reason, Arc is being super cautious (despite wolves hanging off his armour etc), when it seems like he can just facetank everything.

    His weakness is that he's a noob to fighting. Things like controlling space, movement, terrain advantage, baiting, controlling his own body etc. He's an over-levelled character as opposed instead of being Jackie Chan.

    I found it funny that the wolves were bled and hung when all she seemed to be after was the tails. It'd make more sense to at least show the rest of the skinned pelts to visually confirm that she made use of the whole wolf.

    The uncurse thing vs Skeleton is logically inconsistent but I doubt it's significant to the story. By logically inconsistent, imagine this - What'd happen Arc uncursed his chest while Ponta was resting inside? Is he truly a skeleton, or a human? Or is he 100% one, then 100% the other depending on the status of Uncurse?

    It's indeed pretty weird. Considering he eats and drinks just fine, I reckon he also needs to eat and drink to live. We know he's not an undead. So, it's indeed a skeleton avatar/skin applied on top of the normal human one. It's like he's a normal human, but everything in his body, apart from the bones, is invisible and incorporeal. So, all the flesh, organs, and skin is there, but you can't see or touch them. When he uses the anti-curse spell, it temporarily makes the flesh visible, possibly also corporeal. I suppose it makes sense for that world, which is real, not a game anymore, to treat the avatar/skin issue like that, as a curse. It might be funny in a game, but if you had to live your life like that, it would indeed be a curse.

    What's actually funny is the mechanics of him trying to have sex. How fast can you spam uncurse Arc?!

    He needs some kind of Uncurse Field or Uncurse Pool or something.

    He doesn't need to worry about that at all because this is a shounen series! The strongest fundamental force in a shounen universe is the inability of the MC to have sex.

    This is a light novel adaptation though. That POS Arifureta proves that that's not always the case. That's a shonen light novel adaptation, and that guy totally fucks the loli in, like, the first arc.

    A good point. Maybe it gets a special privilege by being an edgelord series?
