Also Emilia and Megumin talked to each other this week in Quartet.

So how is the new season of Quartet?

Haven't seen it (1st season did nothing from me) but from everything I read they included the Shield Hero and then they literally put him in a different class that doesn't interact with the rest of the cast at all. Which sounds hilariously stupid.

How much do the new additions matter? I was familiar with the four original IPs in Quartet but I never watched any of the ones added at the end of the season.

Not much. They barely appear in the season.

Shield Hero is the only new one and he's gotten a little focus in the first episode and basically a cameo in the 2nd, no appearance in the 3rd. It's actually impressive how little the show seems to care about what originally seemed like the hook for the 2nd season.

Maybe the writers realized a character without a personality and whose only gimmick is being uninterested in things going around him wouldn't work for the format.

Everyone however should go watch Memory Snow, as I just did.

It's cute, it's fluffy, it gives us a glimpse of Emilia's character, and has subtle foreshadowing for arcs 3 and 4.

And is highly gifable.

Memory Snow reminded me why it's one of my favorites.

Also I've only seen the show so roughly where are the arcs separated? Is it every time he gets a new save point? Or is it more arbitrary based on where each novel ends?

Sorta/Sorta not? I admit that I haven't read the novels, but basically with Arcs 1 and 2 (the first 12/13 episodes) that holds true, whereas in Arc 3 there are at least 2, if not 3 save points.

Conspiratiorist

They're separated by "situation" they're dealing with, which often coincides with Subaru dying and discovering he's got a new save point.

Arc 1: Subaru's initial arrival, saving Emilia.
Arc 2: Roswaal mansion, dealing with the shaman controlling the demon beasts.
Arc 3: the entire stretch from returning to the capital and the introduction of the royal candidates, to defeating Petelgeuse for good and an epilogue that got skipped by the anime.

Notably, Arc 3 begins several days before Subaru gets his first save point, and also has his save point updated twice over the course of it.

I am happy that so far isekai quartet has pretty much ignored the shield hero cast outside of the first episode.

I think seeing the shorts and Isekai Quartet more recently is what made me forget how brutal these episodes were as well as how broken Subaru gets in this period.

During the original run my feelings were that the show had been decent up to this point, but from the stuff in this big episode onwards I was hooked.

This is something I can't remember if it gets addressed in the show or if I missed it, but where are Lord Roswaal and Betty during the cult attack on the mansion? Even if it was a surprise attack, I feel like either of the two of them would be pretty capable of defending things.

Conspiratiorist

Roswaal wasn't around (his whereabouts are addressed in the following story arc), and Betty is limited to protecting the library.

yeah ram states earlier in the show that she thinks she can take betty 1v1 when they're a little ways away from the manor, and ram is Extremely Dead from the cult invasion. even assuming betty is probably substantially stronger at the actual mansion grounds, the drop off in power is steep enough that her effective defense radius is actually probably pretty small vs that level of threat.

also puck would've been there during the attack and he's some kind of freaky elemental god. while they obviously didn't kill puck, they killed everyone else. the cult's attack was no joke

Okay that clears things up, thanks! I forgot Betty's power is directly tied to the library.

The attack happens overnight so Pack couldn't have acted due to his contract restrictions. Emilia could've forcefully manifested Pack's complete form and he'd have easily annihilated the cult, but that'd have killed everyone but her.

If it was just surviving they could've done so in a number of ways just like that, but they tried to protect the village, too. The first time Subaru reaches the mansion, what he witnesses is I believe Rem and Ram's last stand trying to protect the children and getting a mortally wounded Emilia to the library (Rem is in the courtyard close to the shed where many are hiding, Ram died with Petra in her arms, and from them a trail of blood leads down a secret passage in Roswaal's study where Pack has just woken up and is starting to freeze things over).

Finally got around to watching the Director's Cut up to episodes 13 + 14 and Memory Snow.

So a few things as we roll onto the decisive final episode of S1 Director's Cut:

1) It's airing on Subaru's birthday (April Fools!)
2) There is absolutely, absolutely, going to be new content at the very end of this episode. Content I have been waiting for the last 4 years. Content every LN/WN reader knows.
3) With that being said, how do we handle Wednesday's spoilers?
4) And can someone PM the threads on 4chan that morning as it begins?

Get ready everyone
