Rista quite suddenly learns through Aria that Seiya may be in grave danger, as the archery goddess Mitis was exiled to the forest because she’s a nymphomaniac who preys on human men. When she, Mash and Eruru arrive, however, Seiya already has the situation well in hand.
Not only does he decline her taboo offer to copulate like there’s no tomorrow, but he’s able to deliver a five-arrow attack that “satisfies” her anyway. And so Mitis joins SAOA’s Administrator as the second woman antagonist in recent memory to fight a battle while buck naked.
Now that Seiya is perfectly prepared to fight Beel Bub, Cautious Hero takes to the skies, where the bugman has already taken Roselie hostage after she recklessly demanded a fair fight from him. Seiya calls upon Rista to provide a diversion so he can snipe Bub, as well as catch Rose when Bub drops her.
The aerial setting is a nice change of pace for a show that’s already had boss fights on fields and in caves, and as Rista says (or rather is told to say by Seiya), it is a really nice day—especially above the clouds!
After Bub is defeated, Roselie naturally doesn’t show the slightest bit of gratitude, while Seiya is content to “let the dog bark,” as it were. This time, Rose is able to control her temper, and tells him about the sacred legendary armor located in the vilage of Izale.
Seiya assumes it’s sacred legendary cursed armor, but the party heads to Izale to find it anyway, hoping to rest after two consecutive tough battles. What they find instead is an Izale in flames and the armor destroyed by an Adamantoise summoned by the third of the Heavenly Kings, Kilkapul, who has been watching Seiya and is confident he can put him down for good.
