This was the quickest episode that I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Like when the end credits rolled. I was in utter shock of the way that this episode played so quickly. Well let’s get into this episode called “The Value of Life”.
Let’s start off with another dialogue between Subaru and Roswaal as their back and forth this season is amazing. As every time they talk we get more and more information about the world and the lore. As this time we get some additional information about what he must say to Beatrice and possibly given ideas for her reason. She will listen to the contract once Beako hears those words from Subaru.
Beako’s Mom Theory
I was having a discussion last week and I am of the belief now that Beako’s mom is one of the witches. Specifically the witch of wrath Minerva. As I feel the gospel that she follows all the time is hers. This episode confirms that she was not a part of the Witches Cult (as long as you believe Roswaal’s word). Mainly her mother being dead and her holding that book so dearly. The reason I picked Minerva is based on the design.
Two “Not” Gospels
But, one thing that interested me what Roswaal said was that the Gospel that Beako had is not really a gospel. But an entirely different book all together. But, that is only two books in the world with one of them being with Beako (mini theory: the other being with Echidna). So that is interesting what we got. Also Subaru is “that person”. Words that Subaru must speak to Beako once they meet again. As it is something that I am really interested in. What does this mean for Subaru in the future?
Well Garf’s trust level is a must. Cause if you don’t have that then people will die. Adding another obstacle that is a must. One thing that caught my mind though is the jewel. Is it something that transforms Garfield or is it something that purleys teleports you. As it took Subaru in an empty land covered by snow.
Death By Bunnies
This has to be Subaru’s worst death. I am thinking back on all of them. Most of them were quick and still painful. But, getting eaten alive bit by bit has to be up there as his worst death. Who caused it is something in on itself. As the compilation keeps adding up at this point.
Stuff Needed To Be Done:
- Return Rem & Crush to Normal
- Free The Villagers
- Pass the Trial
- Obtain Garfield’s Trust
- Obtain Ryuzu Trust
- Protect the Mansion From Elsa
- Protect the Mansion From MaBeast
- Find Out Why He Was In The Snow to Die By Bunnies
- Who Cause The Bunnies
- Talk To Beatrice
- Find out whos side Roswaal is truly on
- Help Emila come over her past
These are the things that I can come off the top of my head. As I really wonder if Subaru can get out of this. As this man had no breaks since episode 15 of season 1. It has just been constant despair over and over again. I really think when we saw that moment of him beating his head over the floor. I really think he gave up at that moment. If Echidna didn’t save him at the moment we don’t know what would have happened. As this anime constantly makes me question how does this man keep his sanity through the series.
This season truly belongs to Echidna alone. As her quirkiness with him and the way the Subaru acts with her is my favorite exchange of dialogue in the series. I like the attention to detail that the drink that she gave him calms his nerves when he is with her. Also when Subaru said he didn’t want to forget her. Then Echidna blushing that was something that I loved.
“I Can Return by Death”
After all of this time. After trying to say it to everyone, that burden that he had to hold. When he finally got to say it. I can understand. Even if you don’t trust her, when he finally didn’t have to speak in a riddle to someone. Someone that he can talk about to anything. That was a very great moment to me. But, I wonder now what their conversation will be with nothing to hold back.
This episode was way too quick for its greatness. I am falling in love with this story more and more as I watch it. I can’t wait to find out what happens next week. So thanks for reading this and Until next time be great my A&M people.
Also I have to admit now that Echidna is indeed the best girl (for this season).
