Aiz Wallenstein makes the best grand entrance possible. Flash of the boots, flash of the hair, and then that cold disinterested look back.
The star of the show is Aiz, of course. The quiet girl without much expression, but still interested in cute people. Bell wasn't the only one she was worried about! Her story takes place concurrently with the original show from two years ago. They didn't show that cute pout of hers back then because we followed "Tomato" Bell as he ran away.
Tiona and Tione.
I had been looking forward to seeing these two sisters again! I don't know if they're twins, but their similar names had me make up a mnemonic device to remember the difference. TionA is for A cup (appeals to the flat is justice crowd) and TioNE is for "Oppai, Ne?" (for all the rest of right thinking hornballs). They're both melee fighters, and both tan and fit. I like them a lot.
Tione has a big crush on their party leader Finn. She also has a Berserker split personality. Lucky for her, the party has a whole bunch of healing potions.
Tiona, Lefiya, and even Hestia.
Hestia made a cameo. The focus of the episode was on building up Lefiya as a confident fire mage. Tiona, as the genki girl of the party, will surely help.
