How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω episode 6 reminds us that sometimes it’s more fun to watch complete domination than a good fight. Diablo hasn’t really had an opportunity this season to show off his superiority. This accomplishes that about as quickly as possible.
When the credits started to roll I was a little surprised. It felt like the episode really just got started. Before I knew what was happening everything was all over. I guess you can say that I got so involved in what was going on that I lost track of time. Not too bad from an anime that I’ve been mainly critical of.
What were the good parts of episode 6?
I can’t start this section without saying that I think the fanservice was kept to a more acceptable level, and it showed. How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω episode 6 was much more palatable because it wasn’t pushing the boundaries into porn. There was fanservice during the episode, it just wasn’t excessive.
What that meant was I could watch the action without being overly cautious about what was coming next. This was just a good old-fashioned knight in shining armor rescue. Sometimes that’s all you need.
I think my favorite part of episode 6 was what caused Diablo to lose his cool and destroy Varakness. This is where the fanservice actually helped out the story. When confronting Varakness Diablo is taken aback by Varakness’s harem. Diablo notices them starting to get it on while on the battlefield.
Diablo, being the shut in gamer that he is, can’t stand the sight of someone else doing something like this while in combat. Frankly I think he’s jealous. In this jealous rage he downs a large handful of potions and goes on to wreck Varakness and his wives. It’s just a funny, satisfying moment.
Were there any parts of How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω Episode 6 that you didn’t like?
I can’t really think of anything off the top of my head that was really annoying or bad. The story played out pretty much how you’d expect it to. I think How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω would have a pretty normal story if it weren’t for all of the fanservice that litters the anime. When that’s kept to a minimum then you really get to see what the anime looks like. I actually prefer what we were shown here.
I guess if I was to complain about something it would be the inconsistency of abilities that we’ve been shown. If you remember, Diablo, Battuta and Laminitus were shown to be similar is ability levels a few episodes ago. Diablo even had a close battle with Battuta.
Why couldn’t Laminitus put up more of a fight against Varakness then? I understand that Diablo had just pilfered his dungeon and put on his best equipment, but still. Varakness was not very well equipped so Laminitus should’ve been able to put on a better show.
Is How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω Episode 6 Worth Watching?
I actually think that How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω episode 6 is worth watching. I at least had more fun watching this episode than the other five so far. It’s amazing what can happen when more focus is put on what’s going on in the story. You don’t have to try to appeal to the lowest common denominator. I hope this becomes a trend with this anime.
