Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16 was what I was expecting last week. With Iruma experiencing anger for the first time, he and the rest of the Misfit class head off to take down the magical beasts rampaging through Walter Park. What that means for us is that we finally get to see some action. Not just any action, we get to see some of the stronger characters in the anime show off.
Where can I watch Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16?
As always, this anime is airing over at Crunchyroll. That means you can also see it over at VRV if you have a subscription there. It’s not available over at Funimation if you’re wondering. I actually haven’t been able to find it at any other reputable site. I’m not going to go looking at the illegal sites either.
I would highly recommend staying away from the pirated sites that let you watch for free. Just wait a week and it will be available on Crunchyroll. The security of your device is worth the 7 days. This isn’t one of those anime that you have to see right as it comes out. That might turn you off to it altogether, but it’s true.
How was the story in Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16?
This time we got more than just Kalego’s team fighting the magical beasts. This time, it’s also Opera’s team. We still didn’t get to watch Iruma’s group go up against the big red dragon, but I’m guessing that fight is going to be given more time than the other two. Iruma was in action, he just focused on saving the demon children stuck in the rubble.
With Iruma’s group on a rescue mission, that left us to watch Kalego’s team finally act competently. I guess you could excuse their behavior in episode 15 due to lack of experience, but I was a lot happier to see Jazz, Shax Lied, Caim Kamui and Gaap Goemon put up a good fight. The four boys even managed to knock down the magical beast that was their opponent.
I don’t want to go into too much detail here because I’m going to go into it later, but the four boys had to be saved by their teacher. It was a display of power that was consistent throughout Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16. The characters that you thought were strong going in only proved that they weren’t to be messed with.
What did we see from Opera’s team?
Not to be outdone by Kalego, Opera and Ameri both had their opportunity to shine. Considering how Opera has been presented in comparison to Kalego, it wasn’t that surprising. As for Ameri, her bloodline ability was pretty interesting to watch. Basically, Ameri’s ability allows her to achieve whatever she believes in.
This is limited to her physical body. She can’t activate her ability and then use it to manipulate others. She basically can brainwash herself to achieve feats beyond her normal abilities. It’s an incredibly powerful “mind over matter” type of ability.
It was intriguing enough that Opera allowed Ameri to fight the rat looking magical beast on her own. Ameri’s performance then led to Opera extending her a job offer. She could come work under Opera for Lord Sullivan. This would mean that she would live in the same house as Iruma.
As you’d expect by this point, this job offer causes Ameri to become flustered once she realizes what it entails. It’s still open ended on whether or not she’ll take it so I’m sure it’ll pop up a few times going forward. Ameri will have consistent dreams of her and Iruma getting married.
What did Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16 get right?
We haven’t really talked about Iruma’s group, but their actions in Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16 was enjoyable to watch. Iruma gives a passionate speech about how the destruction of Walter Park has made him feel before running off to save the trapped kids. Iruma’s speech inspires his group into action as well.
It’s not really surprising that Asmodeus is moved by Iruma’s words, but it is interesting that he has such an effect on Sabnock Sabro and the others. I guess they all look up to Iruma in one form or another. Watching their friend get emotional over Walter Park’s destruction is enough to move them as well. I have to say, I was pretty moved by Iruma too.
Anything else that was good?
I loved watching Kalego, Ameri and Opera easily dispatch the magical beasts. I guess you could say that Ameri had somewhat of a fight, but I never sensed that she was in any danger. For me, what happened here in Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16 just sets us up for the fight with the Six Fingers.
Kalego’s fighting debut came at a pretty cliche time, but it still didn’t lose any of its effectiveness. Just when his students are about to be crushed, Kalego intervenes, gives a lecture and crushes the blue bull magical beast. He does this all without breaking a sweat. At the end he even sets up his chair on the defeated beast and resumes reading.
For Ameri and Opera, I got the impression that the whole fight was just an opportunity for Opera to gauge Ameri’s abilities. That’s really what Opera used the fight for even if Ameri took it seriously. I have to admit, it was pretty fun to watch Ameri beat down the magical beast with a dem-dol soundtrack playing in the back.
If that last sentence confuses you, the netherworld has it’s own idol system. It’s similar to the one in Japan, only for demons. One of the girls in the Misfit Class, Crocell Kerori, is one of these idols. She goes by the name of Kuromu. During Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16, she holds an impromptu concert in order to calm everyone down. It just so happens that her performance coincides with Ameri’s fight.
Was there anything wrong with Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16?
Not particularly. At least, there wasn’t anything glaringly wrong with the episode. If I was to have one complaint it would be that I wished we got to see a little more focus on the fights with the magical beasts. That may make you confused, as it’s most of what I’ve talked about, but it’s true. At least that’s the one note that I wrote down while watching episode 16.
Besides that, I don’t really have any complaints on this week’s episode of Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun. We’re working our way towards a showdown with the Six Fingers, which should be interesting.
Is Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 16 worth watching?
I believe it is. If you like this anime, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy this episode. It’s a good mix of everything this anime does right. There’s some good action, humor and real emotion. All of that makes for an enjoyable experience. I still don’t think we’ve see Iruma fully angry but perhaps that will come in the next episode. Speaking of which…
Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun season 2 episode 17 Preview
Iruma’s group is up. It’s their turn to fight the magical beast rampaging in their area. It looks like Asmodeus and Sabnock are going to take the lead in the fight. That is, until Balam steps in. Don’t forget, we learned that Balam is at the same level as Kalego. That means we should be in line to see something pretty amazing.
The title of episode 17 is “The Ultimate Halberd.” What that references is not shown to us in the preview. All I can think is that it’s the weapon that Opera requested from Clara. Who or what it is is unclear. It should be pretty amazing when it does show up.
If I was to take a guess, I’d say that this is one of the last episodes that has to do with the magical beasts. I wouldn’t expect the fight to go any longer than episode 18, if there’s a surprise. I suspect that once this is done we’ll see Kiriwo and Iruma come face-to-face again. We’ll just have to wait and see!
Now go watch some anime!
