Anime DifferencesEdit

  • Most of the discussion about the battle against the Witch Cult at Roswaal's territory is cut, including the part where Wilhelm mentions the witches.
  • Subaru and Julius' apology to each other is moved to during their trip to Roswaal's territory instead of soon after meeting each other. In addition, Julius and Wilhelm's explanation of Petelgeuse, Kurgan, and Regulus is cut.
  • Conversation between Emilia and Puck is added.
  • Parts of Subaru and Petelgeuse's conversation is cut, including the part where Subaru claims he is pride and Petelgeuse's explanation of their plan.
  • Subaru's flashback of explaining Petelgeuse's abilities to the rest of the group is cut. Also, Wilhelm decapitating Petelgeuse after bisecting him is cut.
  • The sloth-man was given dialog where as in the Light Novel, the fox-man was given dialog.
  • Felix and Ricardo's conversation is cut.
  • The scenes covering the finger kills is modified to have Petelguese's Unseen Hand ambush appear early. And because of that, the scene where Subaru and other members revisit Petelguese's corpse, Petelguese kills four members of the Fang of Iron and the introduction of Rajan is cut. Also, Petelgeuse's Unseen Hand crushed its victims rather than gouging out their throats.
  • Wilhelm and the female finger's fight is shortened and she is killed by Wilhelm's slash rather than being stabbed through. Also, Mimi and Tivey's attack is added to create the earth rain instead of Wilhelm doing it himself.
  • Julius and Ferris regroup with them and discuss Petelgeuse's abilities at the female finger's body rather than at the spot where they were fighting the Witch Cult members.
  • Ferris' report about the fingers is cut.
  • The conversation between Felix and Subaru on their way to Irlam Village is shortened.
  • The white robed person is clearly shown to be Ram rather than being unknown until they defeat her.


  • The second verse of Stay Alive was used as the ending theme for this episode instead of the first verse.
