Check out our previous episode review here.
I am growing more impressed with this show after each episode.
Okay so, we got the confirmation that King Bosse definitely did make a pact with a demon for a living blood relatives’ strength, and that happened to be Bojji.
I was wrong in last week’s review when I speculated that Bosse might have had another firstborn son, and was using his body. Turns out Bojji is the first, and Bosse ended up building the kingdom the day he was born.
Did King Bosse Reincarnate in his Son Daida’s Body?
It seems there was a grand scheme afoot, where Daida was forced to drink the resurrection elixir after being tricked by Miranjo. This allowed King Bosse to come back to life – or rather possess his youngest son’s body for a second life.
Apparently, this is nothing new for the former giant king.
With the demon’s help (and the shady Miranjo’s influence), it seems Bosse rose in the Ranking of King’s quite quickly. Now if he meant to come back to claim the throne again in another life, or if it was all unintentional remains a mystery.
After all, Bosse really did intend to leave the entire kingdom behind for his firstborn, Bojji.
Bojji was always meant to inherit the throne, as Bosse seemed to experience extreme guilt over the outcome of his demonic pact. He wanted Bojji’s life to be as easy as possible – building a great (and safe) kingdom for the small boy to grow up in.
Now whether or not the demon was laughing before because Bojji was meant to be his next host, or due to witnessing just how tiny he was after being cursed is another story…
I’m just really excited to see what happens next.
Bosse nonchalantly agreed to Miranjo’s plan to murder Hiling, but then goes down to ‘test the strength’ of the monsters intended to kill her.
Bosse tests the strength of Hiling’s Queens Guard Dorshe randomly, before whispering sweet nothings into the ears of his loyal subjects.
It’s clear he has a plan – and that plan does not directly involve Miranjo, or Apeas for that matter.
I’m not sure where the magic mirror lady came from, or why the path to the underworld beneath the castle needs to be destroyed…but no doubt it’s all connected.
Also, sorry this review is a bit shorter than usual.
I watched the episode on time, then got distracted before I finished writing this. Now days later, I’m coming back with a slightly different train of thought and have no desire to rewatch the episode and notice even more things worthy of conversation.
So, I’m going to end it here and proceed to the next installment of the best show this fall anime season has to offer. ☺
But, tell me your thoughts.
Does King Bosse have an ulterior motive?
Where did Miranjo really come from?
