Kyou Kara Maou Season 3 – 02 (ep 80)
Episode 2 – The Qualifications of a Maou
Key Issues of this ep
– Last episode we were left wondering why Wolfram was going to be the next king, or why they were even deciding on a next king. This episode we find out why. – The qualification ceremony for Yuuri being the Maou. – And more problems to come
The qualification ceremony starts off with Yuuri having a battle with a sand panda in a close cage and having to defeat it. The next part of the qualification ceremony is for him to write -something- (he does a terrible job at it) on a huge canvas with a huge brush. haha Followed by a game of baseball. (seems like a very random bunch of activities. lol. love it!) And finally, a meeting with the heads of the different lands in Shin Makoku and declaring whether he will continue as the next Maou and showing his resolve.
The only part of the episode that was light hearted or relaxing was the beginning, because from then on, many new issues were addressed.
Yuuri had overheard the servants saying that Wolfram was suppose to be the next Maou. Confused and all, Konrad spoke to Yuuri and explain what the whole situation was about. (read spoilers section bellow if you wanna know) After that, Yuuri is basically contemplating whether he was wanted or not and stuff, though he does not whine about it (which is good and mature). A visit from Shin-ou and a talk later. Yuuri makes his decision. We also hear Gwendal and Gunter speaking about new problems that might occur. (refer to spoilers)
– Alright, who is the guy that looks like Wolfram? if i did not hear wrongly, he is Wolframs uncle and he was the one who actually decided to nominate Wolfram as the next Maou. And the relationship between Wolfram and his uncle is not all that good. Wolfram does not want to be the next Maou (cos of Yuuri) and he confronts his uncle only to be told to start preparing to be the next king. – The whole issue with the next Maou is basically a result of what happened in the 2nd season. When Yuuri had left and was not suppose to be able to come back they had to decide on a new king. But of course when Yuuri did return they did not continue that discussion/topic any longer. – Yuuri’s decision? He pushes forth and decides to continue being the Maou. (This is with the help of Shin-ou) – Gwendal had actually said something about having a bad feeling about someone (I have no idea who, might need to rewatch to find out). Thus the hint that there will be more problems. And if that is not enough. – Wolfram leaves, cancelling the wedding ceremony.
End of Spoilers
Okay, this was a really good episode. No time wasted. The animation was the usual KKM animation, (nice colors). And I am eager to watch the next episiode. I do wonder about Wolfram and what he is thinking. His attitude seemed to have changed, gotten quieter and less clingy to Yuuri, and it looks as though he has a few issues to handle. This looks to be a big plot building ep! BTW, is it me or does everything seem gloomy this ep? Next episode – Resolve of the Maou. oooooo…. can’t wait! heh
