Season 2 episode 1... argh!!! its Fairy Tail season 2 new animation feelings again. Sure hope this gets better illustration wise the sharp corners on the characters are distracting. Tho 1st seasons style was something to get used to as well.
So its a meta game solution to a rent problem. Many mmoprgs have money sinks. Things to burn your hard earned gold an plat on. Housing in some games is so not worth that kind of money sink. But the in game buildings they control are important to their towns well being. While I do like the gold to the reborn souls in game lore, ok I like that a lot, its a story hook thats unheard of. Well least by me. Its kind of rob the game to pay the game type thing. Go after the source that gives the reborn souls coin.
Tho the end seemed odd they both died an we did not see it? Flashback flag right their for the next episode.
