i just rewatched this episode and I think the bath piece wasn't so much trope or service but as to have a place where everyone is just at ease with nothing pressing but to sit and talk. It illustrated the concerns that Shin's grandparents had for him. ALSO, it further illustrates that Shin is using knowledge from his prior life at home.
The FIRST instance we saw was the bidet toilet. Some said it was unnecessary service....I'm not so sure now after seeing Shin also made his granny a treadmill machine....and THEN they talk about the amount of fat lost to exercise in women and that too much exercise could cause a woman's breasts to shrink...

HOW...the...FRELL....would Shin know that???? We, the audience know, but his contemporaries are stumped.

Also, I'm thinking this show isn't about Shin's journey, but about how he affects the lives of the people around him and the changes THEY go through because of him. I mean, we finally got to see action and plot development apart from Shin, but instead of his enemies, it's his allies.

Lyn is one reckless chick!! Bosou Mahou Shoujo indeed!! "Uhh, I don't think I can control this...." POOF!! mini mushroom cloud!!

Shin has leveled his classmates up to the point that they all are beyond the current court magicians...and now he, and BOTH his grandparents are gonna teach them at a training camp?????......HOOOOOOCHIEEEEMAMA!!!!!

Bring back last week's ED... it was more entertaining than this episode.




The whole teasing Shin and Sicily about being a couple has gotten old really fast...



As has the incessant adulation of shin and his "grandparents's" powers.

Add to that Shin's apparent ability to train newbs to unheard of levels of magical prowess out of nowhere (oh yeah... visualisation)

The only hope for this show in my eyes is a good dose of hubris, but I can't see it happening.

After watching the episode last week, I was going to reply to a comment in this thread about the power gap between the protagonist and everyone else, how they would no doubt crank up the power level of the rest of the cast. Without doing that, they would only serve as a gallery chirping up "He's so powerful" all the time. So the moment they made a bunch of powerful bad guys, well, it was inevitable the power level of his entire group of friends would be cranked up so they could do something useful. And now, an episode later, they're already doing it.

And of course, to keep the cast of kids special, they're not training everyone, despite the huge threat they are facing, because they're worried about it starting a war (yeah, people are going to attack the most powerful nation) or something.

Anyway, this is also a show that makes me wonder, "Why isekai?" I mean, okay, you can sort of explain why he thinks in a different way, that that's why his magic is so powerful, but you wouldn't bat an eye at that just if he had some more innate potential than others and due to being raised by Merlin. It doesn't really serve a purpose. If he used his knowledge of the previous world to do something like introduce gunpowder to help fight against demons, that would be one thing, but he's not doing that. So why is he reborn? Are we going to find out the main bad guy is from Japan as well?
