Wow, the anime is very detailed like the Light Novel. Most anime these days have 1 volume in two or 3 episodes. It is kind of a second nature when watching anime base off Light Novel to see how much anime producers change or leave out stuff due to budgets. You kind of always ask the question, okay how does it compare to the original source? I usually read all volumes of the Light Novel that would be soon to be air on T.V. to compare (though couldn't with this one since it is not translated yet). Usually the ones I enjoy gives off the same feeling as the Light Novel.

^Well, pretty much same here. I could just actually go to baidu and read the LN by myself but i just don't want to spoil myself (At least until the anime finishes). Oh, just how many times already i curse some people who carelessly spoil things from manga on this thread?

I keep the spoilers to myself so I don't offend people. My philosophy for watching anime base off Light Novel is almost the same as reading a storybook or Light Novel for me is skip the entire thing and read the ending. Then start reading the book or Light Novel. When the anime hasn't started yet, I read the entire Light Novel of what is translated.

To sum it up, to me a great story isn't how it goes during the duration of the story then eventually knowing the ending, it is about the interest of how the story progress once you know the ending so you pick up greater interest to see how the author's methods to reaches the story's ending. In my experience if you reading the story normally, by the time of half the Novel or story already read, you pretty much predict the ending and you seek no longer to finish it.

I have some mixed feelings after watching this episode, but overall, I enjoyed it very much. The comedy can't be called stellar but very fun to watch, probably because I've always enjoyed this sort of manzai jabs and comebacks, rather than harem antics. It's a good resolution to v1 (according to some posters) with a number of questions resolved. And looks like we will not depart completely from the serious side of things given that stuff is happening on Ente Isla. Nice hook.

That's a pretty good episode. They mixed well action & humour in this episode. Action scenes weren't as impressive as the first episode ones but it still was good. They brought back the WHITE FOX regulars from the first episode (Atsushi Ikariya, Kazuhisa Nakamura, Taro Ikegami, Satoshi Mori), Mori probably did effects and I suspect Atsushi Ikariya doing Emi's transformation (that's kinda fun since it feels so Saber-ish and Ikariya worked on Fate/Zero). Ashiya was fun as usual (his cape ) and Satan was badass (dat last punch).
The opening is sweet.

Same. That painful sound.

Are you sure about that? Emi said herself that was just power she was had been saving incase Maou went back to his old ways.

That's the kind of mistake a B-grade movie villain would make.
I just hope it's not a common occurrence.

It's really not that unusual for production stuff to rearranged things from source material for better flow in a TV show. It's sort of thing you should expect.

Her friend did gave Emi the hint by saying that humans could become angels or humans depending on their actions.
She also had a monologue in the bath and when she thought about the warmth of the human heart, her hands slightly glowed, which was her getting some magic.
You may have missed that because of all that steam in that scene.

Okay, that's nice catch.

Unlike with Demons the plot seem make point about how sacred power was limited in comparison though.

I think it's basing on the fact that sincere, positive emotion are much scarcer than stress, despair, fear etc negative emotion among human, in this world at least.

Lucifer, Maou, Orba and Emilia.
Looks like good old fashioned human hunger for power is here as well.
Orba and Lucifer vs Maou and Emilia. Those are really weird pairs.
Guess Maou isn't the real villain of this story.
It was fun watching the transform and fight.
Awesome episode!! Just epic!

..........Because no one does that? Maou and Alsiel became human, not younger.

Well, in terms of age, they are younger since Maou is 300 and Alsiel is 1500. I guess it'd be impossible to be human and be at those ages.

That was an epic episode! For an anime with so much humour, it had me grinning the whole time with the action scenes and the epicness that radiated off Maou and Alsiel (Emi not so much )

I was trying to find gifs on the internet of both Maou and Asiel that could be used as Avatars and Signatures, I found one where Maou and Lucifer were face to face, but I can't really find any of Asiel at the moment which is a shame

Emi didn't do enough level grinding. She should be able to solo a mid-boss like Lucifer even if she is low on MP.

Emi didn't like the story much, so she didn't bother to do any side missions, which made the final fight doable (and shaved off 25 hours getting there), but when the Final, Final Boss appeared, she actually didn't have any MP left and had to switch out to other party members to survive.

I've played too many RPGs.
