When the trailer of “The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent” came out, expectations were not too high. But, it seems this anime series is going to be a sleeper-hit of this season. There are many isekai out there with plot that are either good or complete garbage, but very rare with a fantastic plot. I think we can say that “The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent” stands between Good and Great. Unlike most isekai series, our Saint, Sei is not overpowered(not yet) and also never shows-off. And, that’s what makes the series a great watch. After watching the 5th episode, I think it’s worth it to watch the upcoming episodes and also the previously missed ones.
Episode 5 Discussion
The feeling Sei had in the beginning of this episode is the same feeling we all got when our final examination results came out. After showing her miraculous healing power, everybody was surprised by her insane magical prowess.
But, as the old saying goes, “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility,” and Sei also has to go through the same experience. Being appraised by the most powerful mage the Kingdom has is not everyone’s cup of tea.
If we go through the speculations that started coming after episode 4 end, many people were saying that, “The grand mage will appraise Sei, and the result will be that she is far more powerful than any mage the Kingdom had ever seen.”
And, it seems the speculations were completely wrong. Sei is so powerful that even the Grand Mage failed to appraise her. That was enough to decide for them that she is The Saint the Kingdom wanted.
Unfortunately, the King’s son is still not ready to accept the fact and is fixated on the other girl, Aira, who although has magic power, but nothing in comparison to what Sei has. Yes, she excels in something that even Sei cannot beat her. Aira learns pretty quickly. If you ask me, the best combination would be to mix Sei and Aira.
Well, after this episode, it seems that Sei has got everything she wanted after landing in this unknown world, and surprise, surprise, her teacher who will teach her more advanced magic is none other than the Grand Mage.
Sei really has hit the Goldmine with this one.
“The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent” releases every Tuesdays. Episode 6 will release on May 11th, 2021. After the honor she received in this episode, it’s sure that Sei’s new journey will begin where she will learn about new magic tricks.
