aww.. my heart aches for Erec-sama. He has such a beautiful and sweet fiancee too. I'm rooting for him and his gal to live happily ever after.

There's a the blond bishie in the OP. I wonder if he's the future husband of the princess.

Yeah, I couldn't get passed that evil expression. Though even without it, you can't exactly look good smashing a rocket hammer into someone's groin....

Damn you DT!

Ouch, ED's life became worse when he encountered DT. He can't even enjoy his future married life in his current state. I am beginning to root for the bad guys instead.

If it makes you feel better, ED could capture DT and transplant DT's "jewels" to himself. That way he can truly be man and be successfully married though I can't be sure if ED's children will be "his".

That would explain the OP song then. DT wanted to lose something.

Makes me wonder if we're going to be sentimental on Marindale since he did got himself breast implants, but still has his balls. Will it be another sad story or another running gag with jokes?

Because we are all men so we can make a connection to ED's situation. He didn't do anything particularly wrong to deserve such a fate. I know it's all joke but still... D:

I actually thought Variation was going to NTR him when I was watching the first half.

Hey speak for yourself, we are not all men in here.

Some of us women feel for ED's situation too and now I can emphasize with his poor fiance too.

Kon is horrible he really ruined two people's lives.

If the name of the hot spring Erec's headed to is anything to go by, he may still have some hope in restoring his jewels.

That is if Kon doesn't decide to smash Erec's "jewels" again.

Do we know how much Magic is in this world? I can see an insanely funny episode with attempting to transfers some Balls from Mariandale to Erec, then all sorts of hijinks breaking out.

Probably ends up with a body transfer accident instead.
What if Kon ends up in Erec's body temporarily. It'll be his biggest nightmare.

It's really weird that no group is going to translate Ixion Saga DT besides Crunchyroll. Guess the series is really bad, but it's bad in a good way. It's the most underrated anime series for this season that seems to make fun of cliches and tropes that we have seen before. ED seems to be immune physically to any bodily harm where his balls are, but not words mentioning them.

Gosh I don't know I think I have been pretty naive about the whole world of gaming.
As someone who played a MMORPG for 4 years straight I can state with confidence that a good 70% of MMORPG players have absolutely no sense of honor and fairness at all. There's just no end to the the new lows that they can reach in order to get that a weapon that deals 579 dmg instead of 578.

The only actually bad thing that he did so far was destroying a city just to make Kon show himself. That apart we don't even know if his intentions are actually evil at all.
It could be that the real villain is the witch that summoned Kon.



Now regarding this episode, I must say that Emilia was absolutely adorable. I already felt a little bad for Erec, but now I feel bad for her, especially considering that she wishes to have a lot of babies with Erec.
Kon really turns out to be a real villain in this anime. Oh he's fun all right and I don't particularly dislike him, but after this episode I like Erec a lot more.

The last part was absolutely hilarious, from "I trained" to "Full metal ballchemist"

Well, remember the circumstances. Erec was trying to kill him.

You know what really impressed me about Erec in this episode? The fact that he wanted to change the terms of the bet before starting the duel.

Normally honorable and noble characters, even more so if villain, tend to be prideful. He could've simply thought "There's no problem Emilia, I'll definitely never lose" and don't worry about the consequence of a loss at all.

Instead he was very responsible and decided to make sure he wouldn't risk to break up with Emilia even if he lost.

I've seen so many MC falling for this, irresponsibly making bets that would cause problems to someone else in case they lost. And Erec turns out to be better than all of them even though he's supposed to be a villain.
That's simply amazing.

From the looks of it the staff definitely succeeded when they said that episode 4 was meant to make the audience see that Erec is a nice guy.

Yeah, we see that he values friendships and loved ones more than his wealth. Maybe he should have been the hero?

I can't wait to see the 2nd part of this, the Tamatsukure onsen. (Balls Creation Hot Spring?)

I thought whenever there is "Tama" inside a word, he will tense up suddenly...?

Kon wants to call that pet "Goemon", but didn't there somebody in another anime who is also called "Goemon"?

*Is ganged up by many guys supporting the boss known as "Goemon"*
