Review: ‘World Break’ EP 6 teaches valuable lesson of effective teamwork

Episode six of World Break: Aria of a Curse for a Holy Swordsman, titled “We Are The Swords of Salvation,” is currently streaming on Crunchyroll and FUNimation for paid members. Free members can watch this same episode six days from now on February 22nd.

The training vacation is interrupted when a “Fortress Class” metaphysical has appeared out of nowhere.

It sucks for the students because they are ordered to not engage the enemy, but it sucks even more because the Six Heads are at odds on what to do. The others subdue Ando as a means to force Moroha to prove himself worthy of being an S-class student.

I understand that much, but I look at Vasilisa of the Six Heads and scratch my head.

This reminds me of a recurring theme in Japanese anime, where Russian women are often portrayed as having blonde hair.

Why do the Japanese often portray Russian women in anime as having blonde hair? I guess that is something I will never find out. This kind of borders on fetishism.

Blonde-headed Russian women aside, I was great to see the “Swords of Salvation” prepare to beat the metaphysical’s @$$ into the next world. It was funny to see Tokiko use this opportunity to sexually harass Moroha when she can.

This is a major fight that I have been waiting to see in the anime series.

I loved watching Kammie distract the monster with firecrackers only to freak out at the last minute when they stare each other in the face. I have the feeling that Kammie is the recurring comic relief in World Break.

The fight scene with the large metaphysical becomes squeamish because of the smaller insects that come out of its body. It makes me shudder just thinking about it. I wouldn’t recommend watching this episode if one has a phobia of insects.

I was surprised that Tokiko is still angry that she did not get to do the “grown-up lotion” stuff with Moroha in the last episode. It was funny to see Tokiko take out her sexual frustration by obliterating all the insect-like creatures headed her way.

That is a clever innuendo to imply that Tokiko wanted to have sex with Moroha and for him to pull out and orgasm all over her. It is a very common ending to many pornographic movies. In layman speak, Tokiko gave the implication she wanted Moroha to ejaculate all over body.

You probably wouldn’t get that innuendo unless your mind is in the gutter.

I guess I can compare and contrast World Break with The Testament of Sister New Devil because the sexual fanservice is implied in the former and is out in the open in the latter.

Putting aside the pornographic sex implication by Tokiko, this episode was pretty exciting to watch because Moroha really f—ked up that metaphysical and scorched it to pieces. Moroha could not have done it without the help of his friends, which emphasizes the importance of teamwork and the best use of individual skills.

Even though Moroha is able to use battle magic and dark magic, he is still getting used to his powers.

It took effective teamwork to systematically slow down and critically hurt that giant metaphysical so that Moroha could kill it. This episode also taught a valuable lesson of reaching into your soul for that extra boost.
