@keyblade master

Probably the power of the runes that was on his left hand had imbedded some power to the sword allowing the sword not to break as easily.

Der-kou's more than just your usual sword.

He talks. And besides that, he's also a magical sword capable of... well... I can't say it even with spoiler tags, so go figure.

You gotta love a smooth talking sword. Or a trash talking book, for that matter.

Well don't forget that Kirshe's sword was a bad one. Remember what the weapon-shop owner thought when he tried to sell it to Louise.

I have the impression the weapon shopkeeper was simply taking advantage of Louise's lack of knowledge about weapons and trying to overcharge her for it. If it is a worthless weapon prone to break in one blow, the shopkeeper would not have been so upset when he realised Kirche exploited his weakness to her sex appeal and made him sell it for only 500.

On a business point of view, it does him no good to sell a shoddy product, especially at an inflated price, since it would only damage his reputation. If he were to only sell it for a low price and it broke, he could simply say "Well, you get what you pay for."

The rather coolstruck Saito, and a rather two-faced Miss Longueville.

Perhaps it was a ceromonial sword?

Those are built with a sharp edge, and can take a few blows, but are not really meant for battlefield conditions and for hitting rock hard golems.

so in retrospect of those fact it could very well be worth what he claim it was, after all louise simpley asked for the "best", even though the Armourer told her to look for a workable and suitable weapon that best match the soldier/fighter's style and skill.

It did look like it was gold-plated, decorated hilt, etc, so it's entirely reasonable that it was worth a lot of money. It's just not a very good weapon. You get what you pay for, in this case that would be the materials, not the craftsmanship.

Yeah I'd hate to see thw swordsman a sword that breaks after one strike would be meant for . Plus he did say it was the sharpest sword in the store. Which kinda got proven to be false. But anyways, that guy is lucky he got only 500 for the thing. Though I can see him having some business trouble when he gets caught for selling faulty merchandise. Anyways forget the swords, I'll take the rocket launcher....of course before it fires it's single shot heh heh.

The sword that Kirche bought was just a prop sword. All those gold plating and gems wouldn't help when Saito tried to attack the Golem with it.

A sword can be both nicely decorated and deadly at the same time. For instance, some Japanese katanas can be considered works of art, and yet at the same time are more than capable of serving its utilitarian purpose. Indeed, the prices of these are nothing short of astronomical.

Since the weapon shopkeeper has the understanding that Louise wants to arm Saito and Louise did mention that he had used a sword before, it makes no sense for him to sell her a prop sword.

Spoiler:
Perhaps there's more to her than we know, i mean Fouquet was surprised when her magic damaged the the wall when her golem couldn't. Seeing how when she tries to cast a spell it results in some destructive effect, maybe that's the only thing she's good(perhaps very good, i guess we'll find out later) at even though it's not intentional ^^;

This was one of the better eps so far, though the "mysterious" Fouquet was totally not a mystery. I felt Louise showed a nice display of that bottled up teen agnst (again foreseeable). Though she did hold up her ideals as a mage well.

Is it just me or there a lot of situation and character to work with, are 13 episodes too few? Dunno, but pretty good show so far.

Regardless of the exact measurements her bust size is pretty close to 0.
yepp we finally been introduced to the antagonist. Finally i got to see Saito in action (Too bad for teh Germanian sword). I liked the part when Louise though the rocket launcher was a wand and swung it like one. ( > < ) I thought that was cute.

this ep was meh. louise/saito/kirche was funny, the golem fight was good but DUH MISS LONGUEVILLE WAS JUST TOO OBVIOUS!

and is it me or when tabitha told louise and saito to get on sylphid, she sounded different?

Saito and Louise dance scene was to cute especially when she said "thank you"
