DanMachi Gaiden Episode 5: “POW”erful Red Pecks

We last left our heroes in the midst of a murder mystery when all of a sudden they were ambushed by lots of monstrous flytraps. Were they able to hang on? Let’s find out.

Mystery man choking out Lefiya

Things weren’t looking good.

The mystery man who called the flytraps took advantage of the distraction and tried choking Lefiya to death since she had the orb with the freaky lizard embryo in it. Thankfully, as usual, Ais came in time to stop “him”.

The redhead who murdered the warrior.

The “man” then revealed “his” true identity as the redhead babe who murdered the warrior at the whorehouse. She’s also buff though I’m not sure if she’s ripped. She may be. She proceeded to pwn Ais HARD. She could even reflect Lefiya’s magic. Ais had to use her wind boost to barely keep up with the redhead.

Freaky alraune.

The freaky embryo then broke out of the orb and possessed a dead flytrap becoming a freaky giant alraune.

Serious Loki.

Meanwhile Loki went directly to Uranus’ chamber suspecting him to be involved with the monstrephilia outbreak, especially the flytraps. Uranus of course denied any involvement. She let him go but best believe she ain’t fully convinced.

Fiery counterattack.

Back to the battle the cavalry arrived to help fight the alraune. Riveria and Lefiya used a sweet team combination to weaken the monster and Tiona finished it off though she unfortunately destroyed the gem.

Small but packs a wallop.

On to Ais vs Redhead the latter dominated Ais and as she was about to break her skull the senpai, Bors and Riveria interfered. Bors got to show off why he’s the squad leader on missions forcing the redhead to retreat. Oh and during her battle with redhead she referred to Ais as Aria, which was her mom’s name. After the battle Ais again dreamed about her mom and the “hero” guy.

Lefiya imagining herself feeding Ais.

Ais, despite still kicking ass in dungeons, wasn’t quite right. Riveria told Lefiya to try and feed Ais since she hadn’t eaten since the battle with the redhead. Readers can guess how she responded.

Ais vs dungeon boss.jpg

Ais 1v1 against the dungeon boss.

Ais requested she continued grinding in the dungeon by herself. Riveria convinced Bors to grant her the request. She tagged along with Ais in hopes of figuring out what’s wrong with her since she won’t tell.

Next time Ais will go one on one with the dungeon boss.

    One thing I really like about this compared to the original: Loki is given so much more spotlight. She’s a really interesting character that was sorely underutilized in the original.

    moving forward, I was sad Lefiya couldn’t go with Ais, but I think she really needs to get stronger before trying to be by her side. At least she seems to be overcoming her fear about getting attacked while casting.

    took me till this episode to finally get that one is Tione and the other Tiona xD

  2. Good stuff once more. Cutest useless(ish) lesbian this season, and now a more interesting, serious plot too! What more could I could ask for?

    (Hint: A side-effect of said “more” would make the useless lesbian faint from happiness. Probably.)

      She’s supposed to start off useless.

      • Quite. Though, the “useless” part isn’t really with regard to her abilities, but rather her…reactions to thinking about doing anything concrete about her crush, as it were. Something she might also get better with in time, I hope. (So the “more” I could ask for were to be possible to really come true, for example.)

        Also, this episode left a boat-load of questions behind. How did the mysterious murderer woman know Ais’ mother’s name, and why did she seemingly think Ais was her mother? Did she honestly think so, and just didn’t know Ais had a daughter in the first place, or was she intentionally using the name to rattle Ais? Why is Ais’ mother’s name apparently somewhat of a secret in the first place? Why did the woman consider Ais to be a “prize”, equal to the seed she was killing to kill for? A bounty on her mother’s head? On Ais? If so, why was she willing to kill Ais? A dead or alive bounty? Or just the honour of killing someone she thinks is a hated enemy of her side, with no monetary bounty in the mix? And other questions.

        In due time she will come out of her weak shell and it shall be GLORIOUS.

        That’s a good thing. Now it’s up to the show to answer as many of the big questions as it can, which I’m sure it will.
