One thing I didn't like in the episode and it applies to both seasons is that
none of your choices really matter in the grand scheme of things. You can save a character from being killed but all you are doing is delaying the inevitable. If a character had the option of being killed don't expect them to live to the next season.
I am also playing Ragnarok Odyssey Ace. It is fun enough but I think Monster Hunter has spoiled me.
