|Episode 11 - The Legend of the Rune-Gods - In Cephiro, Another World|
So now, Mokona's flying platform is sending the Magic Knights toward the flying mountain where Princess Emeraude is imprisoned. Umi thinks that now that they have the Rune-God, they can just go in and save the princess and be done with it so they can get back to Tokyo. But then as they approach the mountain, they are met by a giant hologram of Zagato, and he tries to zap them with lightning, but then they are teleported somewhere.
Zagato talks to Princess Emeraude:
You saved the Magic Knights.
Stop this... Stop this already! I don't want anyone else to be sacrificed!
Meanwhile, Ferio is going around fighting off a bunch of monsters while trying to make his way to Zagato, and suddenly Princess Emeraude contacts Ferio through his communicator device. Ferio asks her where she is so he can come and save her, but instead she tells him where the Magic Knights are.
At the lake on the outskirts of Peerless Village... Please save the Magic Knights! Please, save those girls from another world!He finds them just as they are teleported away from the flying mountain.
Some pink haired minion of Zagato is intimidating the townsfolk for some reason, accusing them of stockpiling weapons to use against Zagato even though they clearly need them to defend against all the monsters. Then she sees the Magic Knights walking around with Ferio, and commands the townspeople to go and murder those girls... she uses threatening tactics and makes the mayor kill himself to get everyone to obey. I think this woman is Caldina, because she says she wants to get back at the Magic Knights for bullying Ascot.
Ferio is the one to inform the girls that they actually need more than one Rune-God.
So how many did you find?
There's more than one Rune-God?
Didn't Clef tell you?
No, we didn't have time to talk when we first met.
When Cephiro faces crisis, Magic Knights will appear from another world. Wielding swords of escudo, and reviving the three Rune-Gods... they will become the Magic Knights.
It's a legend in Cephiro from way, way back.
Knowing this, they now realize it's foolish to go against Zagato right now.
Ferio catches one of the townspeople trying to poison the girls, and calls him out on it, and then all the other townspeople come and attack them. Ferio already knows that these people aren't actually Zagato's minions, so instead of fighting them he takes one of them hostage, and gets them to explain the situation. They say that Caldina is forcing them to kill the Magic Knights in exchange for their lives. Ferio says he has a plan to save both the villagers and the Magic Knights.
Fuu asks him why he's going so far to save them.
Because Princess Emeraude asked me to. But also... because I fell in love with you.
Wow... Ferio sure is confident... and his plan is genius. He figured out from the villagers that Caldina really likes money... so he went up to her with a bag of money and challenged her to a game of cards. They got really into the game, and when the villagers started banging on Caldina's door, Ferio convinced her to ignore it and continue playing... Then when the villagers busted in, they told her that the girls they were ordered to kill had managed to run away.
Why didn't you tell me earlier?
We've been banging on the door to let you know all this time...
It seems like Caldina would've probably figured out that Ferio tricked her and would've killed him right there, but then a villager goes and stabs Ferio himself, leaving Caldina stunned... Caldina then decides to just take his money and leave. After she leaves, Ferio stands up.
I told you it'd go well.
Thank you very much.
That was great, this entire episode gave Ferio a lot more of the spotlight, and made him out to be a really competent hero character worthy of fighting alongside the Legendary Magic Knights.
Ascot is living with Caldina now, and she's trying to help redeem his reputation so that he can go back to Zagato's castle... but Ascot says he doesn't want to do this anymore.
No, no. A talented kid like you shouldn't waste your life like this.
The Magic Knights realize that they're gonna have to keep fighting off Zagato and getting stronger, until they're strong enough to defeat him... lol Zagato sure is making it easy for them to level up, by sending in his weakest minions first instead of going after them himself.
Fuu gets a call from Ferio on her communicator device, telling her that he's okay, and also says:
Give me a heads-up now and then. If you call only when you need help, it's kinda sad. Later.Making Fuu blush like crazy.
