Isekai Cheat Magician (Episode 7) – Taichi Becomes A Summoner

Last episode, a large group of assorted monsters attacked the city. Despite what appeared to be thousands of them being killed, their attack continues!

Also, a pair of twins who were enemies and created an army of orcs with the intent of destorying the town randomly switched sides and joined Taichi after their orb broke.

Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest (Episode 5.5) – Recap + Bunnygirl

Last episode, Hajime learned some ancient magic from the spirit of the maverick that once lived on the labyrinth’s 100th floor. He and Yue then spent some time gearing up and preparing for the next step in their journey – heading back to the surface, via teleportation.

Unfortunately, this is not episode 6, but episode 5.5.
What this means is that the episode is 99% recap, and 1% teaser for the next episode.

And so, I’ll just go over the super short teaser at the end of this recap episode, and we’ll be done here.
