Nice conclusion but the end is rather abrupt. I expected Howzer to propose to escort them since he knows Percival's tittle. But he lets them go like this?

Percival has two swords now. Dual wielding incoming?
Maybe it's Sin's orders (so Meliodas') to let him travel and grow by himself while trying to find the others. Knowing that the last one, and probably strongest one, will be waiting them at Liones

What that chubby bird suppose to mean? I’m genuinely confused…
No I understand that someone spying on our heroes, with it… But why it’s so chunky?
I think maybe it’s connected to the next 4KotA we will meet.

Also, Percival now has “Meliodas’s first sword” but now not broken? I see it as MC crown, of sorts.

Two swords? Can you remind me of the first one

You think they'll find the other knights in the mountain ranges?

That was a pretty good ending to the arc. I'm a bit disappointed that the baby dragon didn't join the party and that the mama dragon couldn't even scratch Howzer, but oh well. Edlin going back to being Howzer's apprentice was expected and it means we'll most likely see him again later down the line. Based on the title of the next chapter the gang is going to start crossing the mountains next week. Howzer's warning about Arthur's knights seeking the dragon handle coupled with the suspicious bird at the end pretty much guarantee that they are going to be coming after Percival soon. Logically it would make sense for Howzer to escort Percival to Liones, but that would screw up the power balance of the party. Then again if even Ironside failed to take down Percival it would make sense for the Knights of Chaos to send in a real powerhouse this time. Howzer could be used to keep that guy busy while the rest of the party deal with the weaker enemies.

Percival inheriting the sword handle from Meliodas is a nice touch especially since Meliodas only ever used it when it was broken. It does make Howzer look a little careless though since the handle can apparently turn the tables on the whole war, presumably by sealing Meliodas. It's not something you should leave in the hands of some kids, but it makes for such a nice parallel that I'm willing to overlook it. Even more so if Howzer temporarily joins the party as well. There was that one time when Meliodas used the sword handle to manifest some sort of a ghostly dragon to scare Oslo away which was never explained in any way. Hopefully Percival manages to activate whatever ability that was, presumably something related to the Chaos Dragon that the handle is supposed to represent. Will be interesting to see what happens to Percival's other sword since this one is way more iconic and actually important to the plot.

Nice and wholesome conclusion, the ending was obvious as soon as Howzer came to help them, they were lucky this time.

I liked that Percival got that Dragon sword.

He has now that Ouroboros magic sword gifted by Arthur to his Grampa and Meliodas's broken iconic sword, it helps that he looks like a younger version of Mel as well.

Again with the sword handle plot? "It has the power to turn the entire war against Arthur" pleaaaaseee even if they could bring the 10C back to life it wouldn't matter. You mean to tell me Meliodas discarded such a powerful sword (allegedly) after the 10C were unsealed? Let's not talk about how Nakaba just completely recycled his previous MC in terms of appearance now.
P.S. The dragon plot was disappointing as hell.

I wonder if that's the Chaos Dragons soul trapped in the handle.

The handle itself is just a part of the CoD. I don't think it can do anything else.

I thought it meant that if Arthur get a hold in the handle he'll finally get ride of Meliodas(and probably Zel) his greatest obstacle and threat right now.
The handle alone is worthless I believe

10C aren't coming back, they wouldn't be powerful enough anyway. I think it's going to be used to seal Meliodas and possibly the other Sins.

Well he didn't get the sword back after Hendrickson used it to open the seal.

Changed the poll. Same as the Japanese quiz!

I didn't add Escanor since he is dead but should I? Maybe he appearing via flashback would count but I doubt it.

Well this chapter was a nice conclusion. Loved the interaction between Percy and Howzer. Didn't much care for the Edlin stuff, but I guess it could have a point down the line. Like others, I was surprised that Howzer wasn't sticking with the group, but I suppose with him around, they wouldn't really have anything to do. It's nice to see Percy get an actual sword, and I can imagine him and Tristen butting heads over it.

something i thought about When Percy goes to train to be a knight in liones because nasiens likes potions,meds and poisons etc that he could learn under hendi because hendi has a potions school in liones so it would give him something to do and be cute to see him train with hendi

Meh ending really. Expected more from a literal dragon fighting what is, a top tier human warrior.

Also Howzer just giving Percival the sword is dumb. If its so dangerous to Liones... then just take it back with you instead of giving it to a child who is in danger of Camelot coming after him?

It doesn't even make sense. What does Arthur need the sword for? To seal Liones or Meliodas away? Does Arthur forget he's the literal incarnation of a Super God? Why does he need some relic to do it?

I can't take this series seriously just yet when

A) Many of the new characters are clearly ripped off versions of the sins or etc. Percival? Clearly a Mel clone. Anne? Elizabeth clone. Nasiens? It's so Merlin it's funny. Sin? Budget Hawk.

I know this is a sequel but it's feels far too similar to me. The looks, personality and even the powers of some.

B) How am I supposed to take any of the conflict in this series serious when the supposedly villain is a literal super God who could, with a single whim, wipe Liones off the face of the earth, but yet needs some ancient relic to do it?

C) bruh it's nakaba I don't trust him.
