this ep wasnt bad but it made literally no sense, the last couple of episodes was about the magic knights training then, this episode talks about something that happened last arc like bruh stop stalling and just show us the dark triad arc
They are to close to the manga. They need fillers so there won’t be a couple months gap in between each episode. These fillers are also watched over by the writer of the manga so it is all canon. If you want them to start the next arc then you will have to wait months before more episodes. Have some patience please!
Like dude wouldn’t it be better of the the build up to that amazing point rather than get it but not appreciate it as much also what they are doing is trying to world build for us we get to see the after effects of the previous arc rather than it just being forgotten and not matter anymore
