Welcome to the weekly La Storia della Arcana Famiglia report! Last week's episode reveals more about Luca and Jolly's relationship, and this week's episode will reveal why Luca, Debito, and Pace hate Jolly.

Plot

While Felicitá sees Elmo and Jolly and Debito is suffering from headaches, Felicitá asks the others about Luca, Jolly, and Debito's relationship. During a spring cleaning for the church, Felicitá gets her answers when Jolly appears.

What secrets does Jolly hold about Debito, Pace, and Luca?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

They mystery behind the eyepatch is solved!
They mystery behind the eyepatch is solved!
  • We finally learn more Pace, Luca, and Debito's origin story and what is underneath Debito's eyepatch, an amethyst that serves as a restrain on Debito's Arcana Powers.
  • For Debito and Felicitá fans, you get a naughty scene. I'll show you later.
  • Ooh, I was right about Elmo being in the tube in the Piccolino episode. I still wonder what is Jolly's purpose is creating homunculi.

Bad

  • We got some action, and this episode is not devoted 100% to an origin story. It's done well than the last couple of episodes which causes a slow pacing in the anime.

So far, this anime feels like a Slice of Life with the Arcana Duello put on hold. I still wonder how are they going to show us who is the winner, the guy who marries Felicitá. My hopes are high, but I still have doubts.

What you guys and gals feel?

Best Snapshots of the Week

I was debating what is the best default image for the wiki page (episode 8) and weekly report. Usually, I pick the same image for both of them. The ones below are ones I had trouble choosing between.

I chose this one for the wiki page b/c it shows how Debito is a womanizer

I have this weird fascination with guns at people's face who are not fazed

Yeah, I'm a weirdo.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading this report. Please support the anime and the wiki project. I welcome any help. Oh, I just noticed Teshy_Acee added Fel as a nickname to Felicita. Any contributions to the wiki or discussion is really appreciated.

Wiki Progress: Since this episode had a lot of information, I have to update the origin stories for Luca, Debito, and Pace. I finished Ep. 8 page.

It was a interesting ep, we also got a little sample of what Jolly can do as well. I have a feeling that  the Arcana Dello may not hppen this season. I hope I'm wrong though.

@Sonata:

From the next episode preview, I could not believe what Mondo said about the upcoming match. (if I remember correctly)
