You know I have lost a lot of interest in this season of The Devil is a Part-Timer and the upside to that is that it makes the posts a lot quicker to write. And who knows, maybe it will be an awesome finale!
The cliffhanger bear from the last episode turned out to be nothing. Basically, it was well a cliffhanger last episode although we all knew it was nothing. These characters fight demons and angels on a regular basis, a bear is not going to be a big deal.
As predicted, Emilia took care of it in the opening scene. Then it was used as a bear-slayer “joke” that went over my head and Emilia freaked out a bunch. Was she that cartoonishly tsundere last season? I don’t remember her having that many mood swings. But that could just be a faulty memory issue. And we also saw her less last episode so she didn’t have as many opportunities.
Then it turned into a produce and equipment thief storyline. For a second I thought that someone in Chiho’s family might be involved and I thought that was cool but actually, it was people we don’t know and, that was taken care of in one scene as well. It was an opportunity for the accidental chest grab “joke”. I haven’t seen that one in a long long time.
Admittedly I’m not paying super close attention to the season but I do find that they are getting powers whenever they need them. Emilia’s magic boots. We saw them before but they sure are useful. Alas turning into a sword. Sorry, I mean Alas Ramus. And Maou getting his Satan form whenever. I am glad they kind of addressed it in the closing scene although not really.
And that is the end of the farm filler arc. With only 3 episodes to go, it’s the perfect time to go back to the main plot and introduce a new character I’m kidding, it’s usually a very weak move to introduce a new character in the last episodes. I think Part-Timer did this in season 1 as well and it wasn’t great then either.
