YMMV: The Sacred Blacksmith
  • Base Breaker: Between Luke and Cecily. Although an insensitive Jerkass with something of a heart of gold later on fans (particularly Western fans) support Luke over Cecily due to her violent Tsundere tendencies. This is not helped by the fact that the anime version (which many fans are more familiar with) portrays her as inept and weak compared to her original light novel and manga versions where she is far more competent and morally sound than Luke. However many fans of the anime nonetheless support Cecily for her more heroic traits alongside fans familiar with the manga and light novels.
  • Better on DVD: There will be nudity.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Siegfried's utterly brutal beatdown on Cecily.
  • Tear Jerker: During Siegfried's assault, Cecily, in desperation and terror, flat-out screams for Luke. But there is no Big Damn Heroes moment. Luke does not come to save her. Cecily is brutally beaten, mocked about her helplessness, and left naked and traumatized on the dirty floor of a barn. After Siegfried leaves, she's so sickened and shaken that she vomits. It's a horrific scene and utterly heart-wrenching.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Cecily takes Aria and Lisa out to dinner where they try to keep her well watered with mead.
