So to continue the Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou research, let's focus on
what episode 11 would be like.
It's apparent Keena is starting to awaken, no doubt her birthday is
already progressing into half a day by now. Speaking of which, these
characters haven't gotten much sleep the past few hours.
With Keena embracing her destiny, it would just about mean Bouchirou
will carry out his plan, which is for some reason to destroy the Maou.
Thinking about it, they've never gone into detail why it is he went
against the previous Maou. As we currently know, that previous Maou
didn't like the system of Title Declaration, so he goes against that
system. Cue the “guy goes on a evil rampage and so we must stop him”
Maybe Bouchirou is being a saint in that he thinks that “if it aint
broke, don't fix it” of today's society. And so he'll carry it upon
himself to safeguard this “system” so as to continue a life without
“war”. At least, this is the kind of motive for him that makes sense
considered what we've seen so far. But, that's never the case now is
it? Apparently, he already had his plan in motion to acquire Keena for
his plan to defeat the Maou, but this doesn't look like the path of a
saint, but rather of someone who has their own agenda.
Granted, not everything in Dai Maou has ever gone according to
history, but what we can only work with is, either the novels or what
the anime has presented to us so far. Now I'm a person who treats
anime separate from their sources, if any. While I could simply look
for novel spoilers somewhere in this world, the fact remains the anime
shows very little detail when you compare a book to 20+ minutes of
audio. Now as it stands, by what's presented to us, Bouchirou has two
sides to his face: his government face, the official face that
everyone knows about but doesn't talk about, and his personal face,
the face that drives his actions into doing what everyone thinks he's
doing. So let's see here, his government face says “I've got to
destroy the Maou before he destroys the world.” While his personal
face most likely says “I'm the only one who can do it, so I've got to
do it no matter what.”
I'm going to go on a limb here and be completely straight up, this
series may very well take the route of Sai being the bad guy here.
Maybe Sai is going about this whole thing the wrong way, in that
violence isn't exactly the answer to everything. and so, perhaps
everyone will attempt to save him before he is lost down the path of
darkness of which he can never return from. Cue Keena carrying out her
promise to save Sai when he needs it.
The other scenario that makes sense is where Sai isn't looking at the
bigger picture. The bigger picture being, Keena, the containment
vessel of the gods that she is, was never fond of Sai going about
killing. So the one here who may need saving might be Keena, after
having absorbed the gods, they (the gods) may not be too happy with
this whole control thing, or rather they probably don't like being
contained. So, to follow Harem Standard Operating Procedure, let's
have everyone support the male lead (Sai) as he races to save Keena
before it's too late. Yeah….okay…
