Yes...I know what they want, and their reasoning is asinine and stupid.....the entire point of that city is for sorcerers to have a safe place to live, free of prejudice....

I wonder why they just don't take any average sorcerer regardless of their curse.

I'm gonna give the sorcerer knights the benefit of the doubt that they're good until proven otherwise. If a sorcerer proves to be talented or powerful, they'll take them as an applicant if they're serious about fighting nemesises.

Well, that is complete non sequitur

She said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about how talented the sorcerer was....







She said he couldn't become a Knight-Sorcerer because of how he looks...she said his look would scare people because he is conspicuously cursed...yet the entire fact that the Knights are sorcerers, means that anyone knows they are cursed....

Wait...if you are a sorcerer, then you've been cursed by a nemesis....but in this city full of sorcerers, you can't be a sorcerer knight if it's obvious you are cursed....huh? How does that even make sense?


Yeah I thought that was pretty dumb too. Especially since it was specifically pointed out that people with very obvious curses were walking around and interacting with everyone else and no one was bothered by it. It would only make sense to me if the knight sorcerers had to leave the area and interact with people who would be more prejudiced against sorcerers, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

They are not trying to hide the fact that they are sorcerers. You'd think with what they call themselves and their uniforms that would apparent. They obviously care about their appearance or public image to some degree. How much is the question. Perhaps there's a stigma in the culture about visible curses like horns or purple snot.

She's a desk lady, not the commander of the sorcerer knights nor the leader of the city. There's plenty of people who can override anything she says. One might think they would take a powerful sorcerer regardless of how visible their curse is. All that has to happen is they witness it by chance... wink wink There's plenty of instances in anime where exceptions were made to a rule or "the desk clerk" got overwritten by a higher ranked person.

All this depends on much the appearance of sorcerers matter to them. We will see in the upcoming episodes.

Ep 5. Such a tender sceen between Seth and Mélie. And damn if Seth couldn't be bothered to comfort her just a little bit.

Probably had no clue what to do after the way she reacted to him.

That was a really well done scene. I feel like this season has been a step up from the last one so far.

Melie was being kinda a shit this episode. All that talk she gave and yet she couldn't realize that she herself should know EXACTLY how Seth feels? There is also one huge difference between the two.

Melie's alternate self, is still in control of HERSELF. Sure she has a temper and maybe shes doesn't take into account her entire surroundings, but when Seth loses control, he directly attacks to harm/kill those around him. Hes a violent unthinking berserker basically. Those are entirely 2 different things and not the same situation.

There is also the fact of Seth not really having friends before, how this is all new to him also and that there should be a little understanding that leaving a note like that was not the best way to handle it. It took Grim last episode to clue him in a little that its not the best thing.

Lol, Melie thinks changing personality and having a short temper is somehow comparable to losing complete control of yourself, gaining immense power and acting to kill anything and anyone around you?

Beserk Seth knocked down a flipping Thaumaturge and he's inexperienced. Of course he'd want to stay away. What you go through is completely different.

The scene was really well done, but if her backstory doesn't equal that her other personality outright killed one of her friends, she's stupid for her reaction.

She was kind of giving a vibe of "I don't care what you have to say anymore, get lost"

He'd already said it in his letter and actions and goodbye. What more was there for him to say?

At the beginning of the scene Mélie said that it must be nice he could leave so easily. Even though the magnitude of their individual curses may be on different levels, it's no less scary and ostracizing for her. Living with sudden and violent Jekyll-and-Hyde isn't easy, and rather lonely. She envied his ability to push past that suffering and continue to walk alone.

Yeah, but you said he should have been comforting her....which it seemed he was trying to do by apologizing to her, but she didn't seem to want to hear his apology.

Seems to me that both of them have legitimate reasons for feeling the way they feel.

Apologizing for being able to walk away so easily? Yeah, I wouldn't want that either.

Comfort could've come from him simply acknowledging her feelings as she cried.

That final chasm created between them – Seth's silence as tears fell, the distance they stood apart – was well composed by the episode director.
