Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! - Chapter 11: Between the sword and the wall ?! It's a joke?!
In Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! Chapter 11, Wendelin knows the royal plan thanks to the conversation he had with Brantag. Knowing that he is a mere puppet of the palace, that he was sent with the aim of making Kurt explode against him, Wendelin decides to find a path that is best for everyone.
Still unsure of how to get anyone hurt, Wendelin can't help but think of Amelie's children. Since none of the possible paths will bring happiness for everyone. So he decides to speak directly to Kurt about his idea to develop the Baumeister domain. Wendelin will give him the resources to make it happen, in exchange he will have access to the Forest of Evil. Something Kurt disagrees with.
Once Wendelin decided the path to follow, a separate one that the palace wanted him to follow. It is launched with the help of Roderich. Proposing a deal to Kurt's allies so that his businesses have a chance in the capital, quickly leaving him alone. In addition to looking for a place where Amelie and her children can live in peace, as well as one where Kurt can be alive.
A human puppet
In Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! - Chapter 11, Wendelin discovers that he was always a human puppet, controlled by the palace for his own benefit. A puppet who followed orders without thinking much about them. A human puppet of which Sasori (Naruto shippuden) would be proud to own.
At the end of previous episode, a hint had already been given that Wendelin was being used by royalty. However, with the confirmation of this in this chapter, Wendelin begins to think more actively about what he wants to do. Trying to find a way in which nobody gets hurt. Showing unnecessary compassion, and in turn disbelief for believing (and waiting) there is such a way.
Honestly, from early in the plot, I already doubted royalty. Everything from the event with the undead dragon. Whom Wendelin had to defeat as a mere 12-year-old boy. Which did not make me have a good opinion of a kingdom that was unable to cope with such an event no matter when it happened. Although the kingdom has great magicians like Brantag or Armstrong, they are not capable of using sacred magic. So if that event had happened before Wendelin's appearance, who would have taken care of it? They previously had Alfred, who also owned and used sacred magic. However, taking into account the time elapsed since his death in the ‘Forest of Evil‘And Wendelin's age currently, Alfred died before Wendelin was born.
Wendelin's kindness only make him a target to be used by other people. Even Amelie herself has tried. Although his motive is much purer, wanting to maintain a good life for his children, even if that means being on the less loved side of the people.
That's why Wendelin's personality frustrates me right now. Well, it is when I most hope to make your own decisions, but keep doubting constantly. Something that in other Isekai does not happen, mainly due to the fact that the reborn / summoned uses his experiences from his previous life to see the situation in more detail and thus make a decision. However, Wendelin from the beginning has not shown to be overly attached and used of his past experiences. Taking this new life as such, to the point of trying to be the "true" Wendelin, the one who was born in that world.
Although he has used his knowledge of his past life for some things, especially in food, such as with mayonnaise in Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! - Chapter 11. But, other than that, he has not done it with something that is not edible. Maintaining the typical yearning of an Isekai protagonist for the food of Japan, primarily.
Still don't understand the nobles
Although this phrase was said by Brantag to Wendelin, I think Kurt's jacket is also left. Neither brother fully understands what it means to be a noble, one for earning a degree at a very young age, the other for not thinking that there would be consequences for their actions.
As I said before, Kurt's actions could have helped the development of Baumeister domains, the way to demand it is not the correct one. What not only caused the people to begin to despise him as their next lord, but also other noblemen and even royalty for the problems that will bring with them when they seek to develop the surrounding areas, such as the ‘Forest of Evil‘.
Both sides took action on the matter. The villagers are on the verge of provoking a rebellion against Kurt, even though he is not yet their lord. For its part, the palace has been pulling the strings for a long time to completely get rid of it. To the point of seeking anger and attack his brother, an envoy by royalty, which would bring great consequences. Among them death, due to its problematic personality.
In any case, my opinion of Kurt remains the same. It's scum I'd like to see your head roll on. It may be very extreme, but that's how I feel every time I see it appear on screen.
By the way, just as he imagined and expected, Kurt's personality would make him try to get rid of his little younger brother himself. Without hiring any "murderer" to do it for him.
Details of Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! - Chapter 11
Something very noticeable compared to past episodes, is the quality of animation. Which improved a lot in Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! - Chapter 11. At least the one shown in the aesthetic details of the characters and in the setting of the scenes. Maintaining great quality. Of course, with the absence of combat scenes in this episode, I can't say that all the animation is going to get better, however the next episode is the ending. So I hope it shows a great animation quality, both in the aesthetic details, and in fluidity of movements. That, after all, there will be at least one battle in that episode.
Unfortunately, the improvement in animation quality did not come until we are on the verge of completion. However, I am grateful at least for this improvement. Well it really is nice to see a good quality along with an arch as much with as much plot and drama as this is.
Speaking of the battle, which involves a magical artifact. I don't think it's much of a problem for Wendelin and his group, after all, the artifact is the Dragon Tamer Flute, and Wendelin and his group are known for taking on those magical beasts. Naming your group "Dragon slayers"If I remember correctly. Furthermore, Vilma single-handedly defeated an undead Wyvern. The battle I think will be more complicated by the fact that they will be preventing other people or structures from suffering any damage, than by the danger of the dragon.
With a magical artifact involved, I think Auditor Luckner will no longer escape. Since he was already suspicious in itself thanks to the rumor around him, and magic artifacts are not cheap at all. Besides that, of course, the Baumeister family that Kurt belongs to is very poor.
I admit that I'm loving the ending that he's going for Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou!, with an arc completely focused on history. Maintaining its focus on political issues involved and / or related to the nobility. Although, as I have already said on more than one occasion, there are parts in which, had I been the protagonist, I would have taken different paths from a very early point in history.
