Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul gives us a set up episode as this third spectacle ends on a big cliffhanger while getting us ready for some awesomeness.
The angels want the “holy child” for themselves because they believe that this kid can help restore humanity’s faith in the gods. What this means is unknown. It could be that instead of being the child of an angel, Mugaro is the kid of some big and famous god. We’ll never know until they reveal who he actually is.
While the angels want him, he is in the custody of Azazel, who will most likely not let go of him that easily after everything the kid went through and after he saved him and all. It will be interesting to see what happens when the angels make contact with Mugaro.
Nina is earning some cash with help from the goose god and her own brawn. People come to arm wrestle her and she beats them with ease. But then this one mysterious handsome man gets provoked by the duck who then comes forward to arm wrestle. He ends up giving Nina quite a tough time, but the dragon girl emerges victorious. This mysterious person doesn’t introduce himself; he just asks Nina’s name and then walks away. The only thing we know about him is that he has a royal ring, or rather had one since he had to give it to the duck because he didn’t have any money on him.
This man looks a lot like King Charioce XVII. Plus, he had a royal ring on him which proves his royalty. Now whether he actually is the king or is only part of the royal family is to be seen.
Nina makes a big revelation by telling that she is here because her teacher told her to, and that her teacher is none other than Favaro. Now it makes sense why Nina was with Bacchus. Her seemingly replacing Favaro adds up too given her link to the afro hero. Now all we have to do is wait for our orange afro to show up.
Elsewhere, Charioce is disappointed with both the Orlean Knights and the Onyx Soldiers for their incompetence. Neither groups have been able to capture the Rag Demon so now his highness himself is stepping in. And this guy doesn’t fear anything. He plans on luring in the Rag Demon by publicly executing a bunch of demons. Azazel can’t possibly ignore this, and this is what Charioce is betting on. Even though Kaiser warns him of a possible large scale rebellion if they go around publicly chopping demon heads off, Charioce is confident that even if such a thing happens, they can silence the opposition easily.
It is also believed by everyone that the Red Dragon and the Rag Demon are related–why else would the dragon appear when the demon was cornered? Charioce hopes that if they lure in the Rag Demon and put him in a tight spot, there is every possibility that the Red Dragon shows up too.
Charioce’s plan goes perfectly as the Rag Demon shows himself right before a demon was about to lose his head. And what’s more is that despite not wanting to get involved with Azazel and his freedom fighting, Nina blasts off at the speed of light to go save him, possibly because she doesn’t want hot guys to die.
Everything is proceeding so smoothly here for Charioce. And it looks like the King himself is going to fight Azazel. It will surely be one difficult fight for this demon as Charioce will probably be equipped with his special technology shield. Along with that, there are dozens of big robots and a big army standing in wait. Azazel will have quite the tough time there. And since Nina is rushing there at full speed, she is also now actively involved in all this mess. She’ll prove to be quite useful to Azazel during the fight.
This episode was very low on the action, but it did its job of getting us excited for the events to follow. We should be expecting a sakuga festival next week as Azazel takes on the king and his men with possible help from a fire-breathing dragon. This should be intense.
