Ep 17 – “A Lazy, Cowardly Princess” / “Taida de Okubyō na Himegimi” (怠惰で臆病な姫君)

Minori manages to convince Naotsugu and Nyanta to let her group begin a surprise attack against the goblin forces. Meanwhile, the Estal Lords hold their own private conference to discuss Yamato’s current predicament and possible battle strategies. Lenessia eventually overhears this information as well as their intention to use the adventurers. In the meantime, Shiroe prepares specific roles with Krusty and Michitaka for their talks with the Estal Lords until they are finally summoned. Having predicted that the Lords would try to gather more information from them, Shiroe uses the same tactic, prompting an outburst from Lord Kiliva stating that the adventurers have a responsibility to act. However, Michitaka violently retorts that they deserve more respect than what the League has shown them. At this time, Lenessia reluctantly makes a sudden appearance and notes the League’s error in negotiating with the adventurers and instead proposes that she go to Akihabara to respectfully recruit volunteers to aid the People. Afterwards, as Minori’s party continue fighting, Shiroe, Akatsuki, Krusty and Lenessia make their way to Akihabara and Shiroe remarks that Lenessia may be the one to change the cities of Estal.
