I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 8 Review- Old Memories And Future Actions
Ex-hero Leo’s character is now clearer than ever in I’m Quitting Heroing, after many rollercoasters of secrets and emotions. Our ex-hero has gone through and assisted all of the demon army generals since the previous episode. He’s developed a strong bond with them, and Queen Echidna appears to be calling for Black Knight Onyx once more. Leo appears to be more determined than ever to finally reveal his secrets to the Queen.
Shutina, the demon general, warned Leo about his impending meeting with the Queen in Yuusha Yamemasu Episode 8. In this episode, we take a break from the usual office-themed plot and are treated to a flashback of Leo and the imp Eibrad. Throughout the episode, their interactions provide a thoughtful and emotionally engaging reconstruction of the ultimate human weapon’s past, which was not so bloodthirsty, as well as the demon invasion.
Surprisingly, this episode took a step back from the main plot to focus on a side character and his interactions with Leo. Eibrad’s introduction gave us a glimpse into the past of our ex-hero and how he must have felt when he was first introduced to this world. How years of survival changed his outlook, and how he eventually ended up at the demon army’s doorstep. I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 8 was mostly talk, but it made us feel sorry for our protagonist’s situation.
Given the amount of dialogue in the episode, the animation was not its strongest suit. To avoid the detailed backgrounds, many frames were enlarged and the majority of them were slowed down. Despite this, this episode’s writing is the best the series has seen thus far. Time flies in I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 8 as information and emotions are delivered at their highest levels.
The Demon Queen remained an under-appreciated character. Despite being the story’s main female protagonist, she still doesn’t get much screen time. The new ending theme song is the highlight of this episode of Yuusha Yamem, and it appears to finally change the screentime of the Queen, who is the only character in the song along with Leo. The song presents an ominous future for the story with crisp graphics and dark music.
Despite the lacklustre animations, I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 8 featured excellent plot and character writing, as well as a new great ending theme song!
