Ep 4 – “Escape” / “Dasshutsu” (脱出)

Finally arriving in Susukino, Shiroe and co. enter the district wary of an ambush by Brigandia. Shiroe meets up with Serara and Nyanta at a secret location, and discovers that his old friend Nyanta had been the one protecting Serara. Shiroe then devises a plan and prepares to leave the district. After having waited patiently for them to exit the district, Shiroe, Nyanta and Serara are surrounded by the Brigandia guild and Shiroe taunts Demiquas into a duel with Nyanta. Nyanta’s swashbuckler sub-class inflicts severe status ailments on Demiquas, who crudely calls in his guild members for aid but Naotsugu quickly intercepts them. Both Naotsugu and Nyanta’s health soon drop to dangerous levels and Shiroe has Serara heal them. With the healing having seemingly little effect, Naotsugu forces the Brigandia members to focus on him and buys enough delay time for Shiroe to ensnare Demiquas and allow Nyanta to defeat him. While taking down Brigandia’s remaining healers Akatsuki marvels at their incredible teamwork, with Serara delivering the finishing blow to Demiquas to protect Shiroe. With their mission successful, Shiroe, Naotsugu and Nyanta summon three griffons and make their way back to Akihabara.
