Review of the First Episode of “Reincarnated as a Sword”
An unidentified man is a victim of a car accident that results in his immediate death. Later on, however, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear, he winds up being reincarnated in a different universe as a sword. As he gains more knowledge about his new environment, he comes to the realization that he can improve his skills and acquire new abilities by eliminating the monsters that populate it.
Therefore, he begins to use this information to his advantage, and as a result, he gradually gains more power on a daily basis. He finds that the distance he travels from the location where he was reincarnated in correlates directly with the strength of the monsters he encounters. However, this also provides him with an additional advantage to contend with dangerous adversaries in order to acquire more powerful powers. The magical sword makes the most of this opportunity by venturing into uncharted territories and growing more formidable as a result of its travels.
However, when he reaches the Wilted Forest and tries to take a break, he discovers that he is unable to use any of his abilities because he has become mired in the mud and cannot free himself. In another part of the world, there is a young cat-girl who is forced to live a miserable existence because she is forced to work for humans who have enslaved her people. In spite of the fact that they are dehumanized on a daily basis, they are unable to do much because the slave contract and the neckband render them incapable of standing up for themselves. They are unable to refuse any orders that are given to them, regardless of how unreasonable the orders may be.
How Does The Enslaved Cat Girl Survive The Attack By The Two-Headed Bear?
Carriages that carry the humans’ belongings as well as the enslaved cat-people are used by the humans to travel through the Wilted Forest on a typical evening. When they realize that a bloodthirsty two-headed bear is following them, the weather, which is not particularly pleasant, becomes the least of their concerns. In fact, it becomes the least of their worries. The beast is able to easily toss the carriage aside by utilizing his brute strength, which compels the people to step out of the vehicle.
The humans who are in control of the slaves give them orders to stay in their place so that they can escape while the beast is busy hunting down others. This allows the humans to escape while the beast is busy hunting down others. The cat people are unable to disobey their owners because the neckband prevents them from doing so. As a result, they are unable to move from their current location. However, when the human who gave them their orders attempts to flee, he ends up getting caught in the chaos that was started by the bear with two heads. Because he is unable to react in time to avoid being crushed by the body of one of the cat-people, the monster simply stomps on him and kills him there and then.
As soon as he passed away, the command he had given to his slaves lost all of its significance, and now the cat-people are free to flee for their lives. Sadly, it is already too late for the majority of them because the bear with two heads is now too close and can easily begin to kill them one after the other. Fortunately, the courageous cat-girl who had previously attempted to stand up for her people notices the magical sword that is stuck in the mud right in front of her.
She doesn’t waste any time in getting in touch with him. When this occurs, both she and the magical sword come to the realization that they are able to communicate with one another through telepathy as soon as they come into physical contact. The latter urges the cat-girl to rescue him from the muck and put him to use in the battle against her attackers. When the two-headed beast is only a few feet away from her, the magical sword uses its telekinetic abilities to whisk her away, safely out of the monster’s reach.
Through the process of skill sharing, the young cat girl was able to acquire abilities such as Sword Magic, Sword Art, and Fire Power. She then used these abilities to fight against the two-headed bear while wielding the magic sword. The fight is decisively won by the duo, who are able to kill the beast with relative ease in the end.
Is She Willing to Retain Control Over Him?
After dispatching the two-headed bear, the young cat-girl offers her thanks and is about to return the magical sword to the location where she first discovered it. On the other hand, the second individual expresses his desire to accompany the girl. However, before she could come to a conclusion, one of the humans who had evaded capture during the chaos and arrived at the location they were hiding in. When he sees the cat-girl holding the sword, he demands that she hand him over to the guards.
He then issues her an order to demonstrate that he is in control of her regardless of what she chooses to do in response to her refusal. He then proceeds to boast about the slave contract that they have and shows it to her as a way of reminding her that she is bound to obey his orders at all times. The mystical sword, which has been listening to their conversation up until this point, employs telekinesis and firepower to burn the contract itself, which immediately frees the cat girl from her life of servitude and sets her free from the life of enslavement she had been living. It turns out that the girl’s name is Fran, and after discovering that the magic sword does not actually have a name, she begins to refer to it as Shishou. In addition to this, she consents to his request that she take over as the true wielder of his weapon beginning on that very day.
