Every anime seems to have a bath/beach episode, and this was theirs. Hermes tricked Bell into spying on the girls while they were bathing and he fell into the waters with them. Fortunately for Bell, many of the girls accepted his presence or were surprisingly pleased by it. It's times like these that I wish the words, "Anime is life," were true.
Bell stumbled upon Ryu-san also bathing, and was almost killed by a splash of water. She's crazy strong! She told Bell about her past and how she lost her familia, and it was pretty tragic. I'm thinking there's definitely room for a cute and powerful elf in Hestia's group. Must I say, "Pretty please"?
Hestia was abducted by adventurers envious of Bell's newfound acclaim. They forced him into a duel to rescue his goddess, claiming they'd take all of his equipment if he lost. The confrontation seemed to be partially instigated by the god Hermes, who wanted to teach Bell the lesson that "Haters gon' hate," which I think is a good lesson to learn.
Bell's friends ran up to the plateau to join the fight. Liliruca had rescued Hestia, so his whole team was there. They shouted, "Started from the bottom now we're here," to which Bell responded, "Started from the bottom now my whole f&^%$#@ team here!" and the fight was over.
Hestia used her divine power of Kaio-ken and made everyone back the eff up off of Bell, then a big ol' skeletor looking thing fell from the sky and the episode ended. What was that all about?
