|Episode 7 - Ferio in Desperation - A Romance in the Desert|
Umi asks to borrow the wish-granting item that Ferio gave to Fuu, and uses it to wish that she could go back to Tokyo and win the fencing tournament. When Hikaru mentions that it already would've been over by now, Umi is like "What are you talking about? Cephiro is a land of the will. If I wish it, even time will pass slower!"
Then Hikaru wishes that she could see her dog Hikari. Then as they notice the earth shaking again, the subject changes to their duty to become Magic Knights. Mokona sends out another hologram feed of Clef. He says that reviving the Rune-God is required for them to become Magic Knights, and that Mokona knows where the Rune-God is.
Mokona shines a beam of light to show them the direction they need to go, and as they head off, Fuu secretly whispers her wish to the item that Ferio gave her. It turns out that Ferio has another one of these items, and is listening to their messages through it. He thinks Umi and Hikaru's wishes are dumb, and then he hears Fuu's wish.
I hope Ferio is alright.
M-Man, that was stupid...
Then Ferio encounters Ascot, just as he's summoning another monster. He overhears that Ascot is going after the Magic Knights, and he tries to pretend to be on his side to go undercover. Ascot isn't falling for it though.
I'm Ferio, a cheap, little bard. To be able to control such monsters... Could you be a summoner under Lord Zagato?Ascot starts shooting at him.
Please spare me! I'm a boring, little fellow who looks up to Lord Zagato! I'll lure the novice Magic Knights out here for you. So please spare my life.
Don't lie. You can't do that.
Please let me see if I can. Assuming that I can't, it's still no loss to you.
Well, if you put it that way.
If I succeed, I'd like to meet Lord Zagato...
You think Zagato would see someone like you?
Then allow me to be your apprentice.
I'll just spare your life.
Ferio obviously wants to take any opportunity he can to get to Lord Zagato and save the princess... but he's not very competent. He soon encounters the girls at a town, and while they're eating pastries together, they hear about the monster in the desert, and Hikaru wants to go check it out. Seems like they would've been lured into the desert anyway even without Ferio's help.
Ferio goes back to Ascot after he accomplishes his task of luring the girls into Ascot's trap. Now he's got Ascot on his good side and Ascot agrees to make him an apprentice. Ferio looks towards the girls and thinks
Nothing personal, but I'll use you to my advantage. Don't worry. I'll save Princess Emeraude.
Ferio tricks Ascot into telling him the monsters weakness, that it can only move around in the sand and it relies on sound to track its target. Ferio talks to Fuu through their communicator device and tells her the sound weakness, and then he lures the monster away by playing the girls' voice recordings on his device.
Of course, Ascot figures out that Ferio is on their side, and now he's using him as a hostage to force the Magic Knights to come back out to the desert. Hikaru trusts Ferio and wants to save him, but Umi thinks he was acting unnatural and that he tricked them into going into the desert. Fuu is undecided, and suggests they get some sleep before deciding whether to go save Ferio. Then Fuu sneaks out at night to go and try to save him on her own.
Ferio thought that they wouldn't come for him, but then is upset to see that Fuu came. She gets blown away by the sandstorm as soon as she pulls out her sword. Ferio gets thrown out of the monster's grasp, and goes to try and save her. He takes the recording device from her and uses it to lure the monster away just like before... but Fuu doesn't want him to be hurt, so she yells out and calls her sword back to her. Her sword evolved to the next level at that moment, and she takes on the monster with it and wins.
That was badass... Ferio says Fuu was an idiot for what she did there, and Fuu says the same thing back to him. Ferio gives her the communicator device back, and then runs away as Hikaru and Umi catch up to them, because he can't stand Umi.
Umi is mad that Fuu's sword evolved due to her recklessness.
I'm not satisfied with this! It's so unfair! If it grows due to recklessness... all the kamikaze car drivers out there would become Magic Knights! I can't believe this! Really, I can't take this anymore!
