So Hiro now has the perfect chance to finally drop the game and never look back...but then it turns out by killing Martin and getting his ghost to pass on, he's somehow found a better chance to survive the mercenary route in Ted? How? Is Alicia going to save him somehow? Is Martin's ghost going to inspire him or something ?

As harsh as Kamui is, it seems like he's...begrudgingly respecting Hiro's play choices now? At least to the extent where he wants to see if Hiro can clear a hard route only Kamui was able to. He still thinks Hiro's trash though .

It's nice to see Hiro trying to work to repair his relationship with Kaede. I think they still have a ways to go, but this is the first step .

So what's the mystery of Ted? Is it what's driving the goblin's to attack? Does it have anything to do with that moaning Hiro heard? Is there more going on here than we know ?

Well, I guess the merc job isn't all bad if it lets you get a hug from the beautiful Queen Govern voiced by Shizuka Itou .

I would say the fact that Reona doesn't care about seeing Hiro strip because there isn't much there as a clear indicator she doesn't really see him as a romantic interest, but I'm sure her teasing will still have the desired effect on Hiro .

Cathy seems really cute and genuinely nice. And is that Kanae Itou I hear voicing her? She kind of feels like the love interest of this specific path (and Bob the best friend character?), but knowing this series I expect something is going to happen to her because she's too nice and conventional compared to the other girls in Hiro's life. That and she isn't in the Opening .

Oh great, Hiro's trainer is the guard who arrested him. It's bad enough that he's a high schooler trying to learn swordsmanship and combat from square one, but his teacher hates his guts too .

"You've been made fun of enough!" Says the girl who is probably making fun of him the most .

Hiro's getting beaten up and bullied in the game again, to the point where he's once again questioning why he's even bothering, but I guess him finding the will to overcome the mercs here will allow him to finally move on from his bullies in real life? We hope .

Amos used Taunt.
It's very effective.

As for the swordfight...
Take it as baseless bragging, but I would have done better. Not saying I would have won against Amos, but Hrio screwed it up right from the beginning by letting himself get taunted.

That being said, I wouldn't have killed Martin either.

As for Hiro's general skills... Let me say it in the words of a certain walkthrough... "Use a goddamn shield, l0053R"

Of course, even the strangely familiar looking girl suddenly decides he isn't worth the bother... Actually where have I seen her before... Uhm Danganronpa?
At least she is actually trying to teach him later. She and the other guy are probably the recruitable NPCs for this Story arc.

Oh btw...
Reona....
Worst...Tutorial fairy...EVER.

The only thing Hiro really has going for him is his speed. That's what he should be emphasizing at this point.

He could have done way better if he had had a shield, but for some reason anime characters with swords seems to be unable to use shields.
It's frankly the same issue as with Eris vs Rudy in Jobless Reincarnation.

Rudy could have actually won that just by having a shield. The same goes to Hrio here.

Boobs played a big part, but his little sister's fit seems to be a large reason Hiro's still playing the game when anyone else would have dropped it by now. If his sister knew all the details though, she'd probably tell him to quit...

There is no scenario there Rudy could win though.

And here it's game, you can't equip something you don't have. Last time I checked, Hiro didn't have exactly lot of money to buy equipment.

The equipment came from the guard, so it's their failure to not provide one, and Hiro's to not ask for one.

I didn't see any written agreement they are obliged to provide any and every equipment he ask for.

No, but they have to provide proper equipment that's suitable to keep him alive, and it's rather clear from Hiro's physique that he needs to compensate for his lack of muscles.

None of them has shields btw. which is dumb to begin with, if you consider how these goblins would even give Goblin Slayer a run for his money.

I disagree with first argument, but your second one is good. I can't reasonably argue Hiro lack of shield is tied to his financial situation when noone else have it either.

Yea, I think if I were him I'd tell her to leave me alone or see if I can swat her with the sword, lol. She's more of an annoyance than anything.

Well, the next episode title implies Reona will finally do something useful (other than poke eyes).

Well that poking eye literally saved Hiro's virtual life, she also give some pretty good advices along the way.

Well, occasionally. I guess sometimes she's right that he should be a little more careful and tells him what a likely next step is (even if it doesn't really turn out well anyways).

That's not bad advice, that's just Hiro being stupid in using them.

I think it's more mean-spirited on her part than just simple banter.

It's more like it keeps not kicking in for Hiro that this doesn't work like a game .
