Like I said before, resorting to destroy the city was the only outright evil action that he took so far.
Everything else that you mentioned are just speculations based on the assumption that he is evil, and ep4 strongly suggests he isn't.

The title for the upcoming beach episode has been revealed, and it's...

BL



.....

...

No not the BL you were all thinking of, it stands for Beautiful Life.

Going by the synopsis, our dear Marian is not only a good guard, she's also an excellent cook, musician and has medicinal knowledge. We'll be learning more about her sad yet beautiful past.

Oh and something about one of the Golden Bomber members being a guest VA, but who cares? Marian-neeeeesaaaaan!!

I would throw in my two cents; one could have a career that necessitates performing evil acts, but not be evil to those of his peers and family.

ED is no less a villain than any other. What is different is we see that he is sociable and caring to those he is closed to. And that his body mutilation has harmed his life and made those who love him very sad.

Very rarely are career villains evil both on and off the clock. It is more often than not that even murderous psychopaths are okay people when they know you personally.

ED is a villain by career but not a truly evil person. He might not even think what he is doing is wrong. For the record we don't even know why he is after the princess. Perhaps he has good intentions or believes his intentions to be good.

It doesn't matter either way. The fact is one does not need to be evil to be an enemy. ED was injured in a duel in two separate occasions, that is all. He does not deserve sympathy when he instigated both battles.

You can't say he deserved better when he knew the risks.

I am pretty sure we are meant to see the villain as the honorable one and the protagonist as the dishonorable one who used dirty methods to win.

This entire series is a parody. I am not exactly being serious in this thread...I don't think anyone is.

That being said I am being serious that I prefer ED to DT...so I am on his side whether that's Fair or not.

Down with DT!

Even if she is a trap, she looks good.

I think the anime staff officially apologized to Capcom for turning it into such a show, does anyone have a link or so?

He doesn't. He outright stated in EP1 that is doing that for the greater good.
Everyone that is around him seem to think that they are on the good side.

You are forgetting that ED is merciful with his enemies which is definitely not something that you normally see in a Villain.

Apart from the fact that he didn't kill and not even seriously harmed the main party in EP1, he could have easily killed Limpus after all that he tried to do, he had all the reasons to.

-He pimped his own sister onto him to make him break with Emilia for the sole purpose of getting his money
-When that failed he still accused him to have violated his sister, causing distress to Emilia and tarnishing his honor.
-He blatantly played dirty by summoning several goons and even a monster in the duel.

After all that ED simply asked Limpus to take back all of his accuastions. They were supposed to duel he could have killed him if he wanted, and that guy did try to do that on him even putting into danger Emilia for that.
Basically Limpus did all that... and ED didn't even think about a single punishment.
If it ended there he wouldn't have payed anything at all for his misdeeds.

And yet Limpus didn't show any gratitude at all and once again ED's mercy was rewarded with a sudden attack to his privates, except this time he didn't have any ball left to lose.

So what was Limpus comeuppanace? A punch. A single punch, that's it.

I'll be damned if I can consider this "no less a villain than any other". This is light years away from "I find your lack of faith disturbing" and I've seen "heroes" in comics that were by far more evil than this.

It goes without saying that you don't need to be "evil" to be an "enemy". In the end who is an enemy is relative, even "Kon" is an enemy.
Just because Erec is Kon's enemy it doesn't mean that he is evil nor that he is a villain.

I don't know if you've seen Utawarerumono, but there's a good example there: Benawi. He is absolutely a good and honorable person, but in the beginning he fights against the MC working under an evil tyrant.
Another example is Fate Testarossa from Nanoha.
You can find examples like that everywhere.

And lastly just because ED is fighting against the MC it doesn't even mean that he is on the wrong side. There's been several stories in the past where it turned out that the MC was unknowingly working for the true villain, and that his enemy was actually on the good side.
Though I doubt this will be the case with this show, I have the strong feeling that the real villain has yet to appear.

I thought Erec said he want to stop the princess from marrying her fiance(prince from his kingdom?) or something.

Still waiting for Flora..............

Well, last weeks episode was better (ED ftw), but this one isn't bad.
Did Kon lose his DT, the most important question of this week

Next one about the princess, she sure has an appetite for her size.

I thought this episode was ok. As most of the episode focused on a fake story. The twist was the story was fake but the story itself wasn't very funny.

That being said Marian's stubble Actually the real Marian (not the fake male version) is awesome.

I am also kind of disappointed we aren't getting ED in the hot springs episode next week. Why did they tease me like that! I want that episode.
