We get reminded that Iruma is a human living in a world that wants to devour him should his secret get out in Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 10. It’s part of this anime that I, quite frankly, had forgotten about. Iruma has done such a good job at fitting in that the sense of danger surrounding him is gone. That is, until this episode brought it back to be front and center.
What do you think of the story here in season 2 episode 9?
When you look at the core of the story, it’s really not that complex. Balam is an eccentric but misunderstood character. Iruma sees through the misconceptions about his teacher and realizes his true nature. In doing so, Iruma inadvertently spills the beans on his situation.
With the cat out of the bag, awkward situations come one after another as Balam and Iruma figure out what to do next. Thankfully for Iruma, Balam is more fascinated at learning about humans than eating them. That’s about the gist of the story, besides a little bit of studying for end of terminus exams.
Once you understand what’s going on and why, Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 10 goes about how you’d expect it to. I’d rate this episode’s execution of the story as solid. It’s nothing I haven’t seen before, but it’s done well. I’m actually glad that the anime reintroduces the danger that Iruma faces for being a human in the netherworld.
What did Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 10 get right?
As I just mentioned, reminding us that Iruma is in mortal danger living in the netherworld was a highlight. Right when Iruma blurted out that “I’m human” to Balam, I was hit with the realization that he might’ve just doomed himself. It’s a feeling that hasn’t been present since the first season.
I’m glad that Iruma’s dangerous situation has been brought back. We were all getting too comfortable watching Iruma blend in. Well, he’s more than blended it. Iruma has firmly planted himself as an outstanding student at Babyls. He’s quickly made a name for himself.
The other part of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 10 that I really enjoyed was watching the Misfit class work together to study. They’ve really become a cohesive unit. Despite their eccentric personalities, the Misfit class actually appears to be a close knit group. It’s either that or they’re all motivated to enjoy their break from school.
I have a hard time explaining why, but when I see the entire Misfit class working together like this, there’s a sense of happy contentment that comes over me. Perhaps I just like watching Iruma be with a group of characters that actually appreciate him. He certainly didn’t get that with his parents. The Misfit class, along with Sullivan and Opera, have become a family for Iruma and watching their relationship continue to develop is what I like to see.
What did season 2 episode 10 get wrong?
While it is fun to watch Iruma and Balam work out their situation, the anime really seems to slow down here. Balam was a little over the top in his behavior, but that’s not a unique character attribute. Anime is full of outlandish and eccentric personalities. I guess my hope was that this part of the anime would’ve gone faster.
In reality, I just wanted to see how Iruma and friends were going to study for their exams. Balam and Iruma’s relationship was less important. I get what’s going on, but it’s not the main focus for me.
Is Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 10 worth watching?
Yes. Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 10 is worth watching. This isn’t the best episode of this anime. It’s not even the best episode of season 2, but it’s worth watching if you’re a fan of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun. I’m glad I watched it, but I’ll be more interested to see how things go in episode 11.
Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 11 preview
The preview for Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2 episode 11 promises to let us know how the Misfit class does in their end of terminus exams. Will the Misfit class be able to go enjoy all of the fun things the netherworld has to offer? Will they instead be forced to take supplementary classes? We’ll have to wait until next week to find out.
On top of that, there will also be some “girl talk.” What this means I’m not completely sure. It’s not exactly a topic that I’m an expert in. My assumption is that the girls will talk about boys and other topics that interest them. I’m sure that Iruma will be mentioned more than once. I can’t say that this part really excites me but who knows what will happen.
Now go watch some anime!
