|Episode 16 - The Trial of Pohjola|
The Shiny Rod is already hinting towards the 4th word's awakening... Ursula tells Akko she's missing something that is required to awaken this next word.
If you want to breathe life into the words, you need to grow by your own power.
Lotte takes Akko and Sucy over to visit her family... things start to get really serious when a rare disease breaks out from their neighbor's cooking, and Lotte's parents get covered in moss and become immobilized... Lotte and Akko start looking for the ingredients needed to make the antidote, and then Sucy and Lotte get infected as well... Now it's all up to Akko to make the antidote and save them before they crumble. Akko kept being impatient and not waiting for the ingredients to fall naturally, but now that she's on her own and has her friends' lives at stake, she's starting to learn to use patience.
Akko helps a Yeti get his confidence back in order to make the last ingredient... but the deer that brought her there left and she has to walk back, and she starts getting mossy herself... Then she gets saved by the deer's owner and is getting more and more mossy as she gets back and starts cooking the potion... Then as she's using the shiny rod to stir the pot, she sees the rod light up... She remembers the 4th word's meaning.
To see it through... Patience is important!
This was a fantastic episode...
