Tsukimichi introduced the bi- ahem, the heroes… which was great, but the episode overall kind of sucked I think.
They spent a full episode going over the summoning of both the other heroes and assembling their parties so the pacing was a little slow.
Don’t get me wrong, I completely appreciate world building, but this felt like a lazy way to handle it. It’s clear that this was episode 2 instead of episode 1 because they wanted to lead with the protagonist as well.
The one thing they got right though was conveying the female heroes complete sense of entitlement to success, I hated her way of thinking in the novel. At least playboy hero was more a victim of circumstance.
