Nice to learn Raphtalias backstory. She is starting to get a little annoying though, I don't know why.
Also the animation is starting to go down hill a little...
Good to finally hear Raphtalia's background. She is humanizing our hero and he starts to have a goal on working in this World, that's nice to see happening.
He won't be able to grow much if tries to avoid the reality and if he doesn't have a clear goal. We saw that on last wave. The episode in itself was not a big deal, but I appreciate what it represents on the big picture.
