Handyman Saitou is my favorite non-sequel anime of this season by far. I’m a HUGE fan of unique anime/manga and this show falls right into that category.
The previous episode ended with Morlock activating the spell to stop time and defeat the Evil Spirit. However, I’m not sure how he will defeat it without Saitou’s help. Also, I’m wondering what happened to Primasse and Kisirugi. Are they dead? Let’s see what happens.
Defeating The Evil Spirit
After stopping time, Morlock forgot what he was supposed to do and was SHOCKED to see everyone stuck. Fortunately, Saitou had foreseen this happening and wrote something on Morlock’s hand which made him remember everything. Now he knew that he has to defeat the Spirit.
He used a spell to enhance his magic power and attacked the Spirit with Fiery Heat Blast. As soon as he attacked it, Kisirugi’s memories flashed before his eyes. He understood why Kisirugi and Primasse did all of this.
The time-binding spell had a limit of 100 seconds after which time started moving again. Saitou and the others were SHOCKED to see that the Evil Spirit was crumbling. Morlock was also standing beside it, however, one of his hands was missing. He asked Lafa to heal Primasse’s wings as he had somehow managed to save Kisirugi and the others by sacrificing his hand.
Lafa hesitated at first as they were trying to kill them. But, Morlock explained the reason behind their actions and cleared everything up. Ninia was asked to heal Morlock’s hand as Lafa proceeded to heal Primasse.
Demon Lord and The Minister
Kisirugi had a short conversation with Raelza and the others as he asked them to forgive the demons and send them back to the Demon Realm. He was also told that Morlock is the LEGENDARY Magician he has been looking for. As they were talking, the Demon Lord and Minister whom Kisirugi had attacked appeared out of nowhere. They attacked Kisirugi but he was saved by one of his demon friends.
Now, this is where the fun begins. After threatening them, Tahlefon realized that the Demon King was his Uncle Dorg. He also recognized Tahlefon and the dispute was settled. It was also revealed that the INFAMOUS Demon King got defeated by humans TWICE!! Shameful indeed.
Magic To Reverse Time
Following this, Kisirugi asked Morlock if he can reverse time to which Morlock replied by saying that it is IMPOSSIBLE!! According to Morlock, the only magician who can reverse time is the one whom he encountered back in the day. However, no one knows where he is not. Kisirugi was disappointed.
Seeing Kisirugi’s disappointed face, the Minster told them he knows someone who can use Rejuvenation magic, and guess what? It is the KING!! However, this magic requires a human sacrifice.
The Ultimate Sacrifice
Hearing this, Kisirugi immediately volunteered to sacrifice himself. Tahlefon and the others tried to stop him but all in vain. According to him, there was no other way. The minister asked everyone if they agreed to this. No one objected as they believed it was the right choice. Saitou also agreed even though Kisirugi had tried to kill him. In his mind, Kisirugi and he was quite alike as both of them were trying to help someone they cared about.
After sending the demons back to their realm, it was time for Primasse and Kisirugi to part ways with everyone. Before leaving, Kisirugi asked Saitou about his trick. Saitou revealed that he is just an ordinary Handyman. According to Kisirugi, if Saitou was not around, they would’ve won easily.
This episode was pretty EMOTIONAL!! I was not expecting to see Kisirugi and the demons again. The fact that Morlock saved them after witnessing their memories is so damn WHOLESOME!!
This episode also proved that Saitou is more than a handyman as he is the HEARD of his small party. Without him, they would crumble and wouldn’t be able to function properly. I’ll give this episode a SOLID 8/10. What do you guys think about this episode?
