Log Horizon Season 3 Episode 8 Spoilers

In episode 7, Misa and Rieze continue to tell Krusty’s story through their puppet show. Kanami and her party find Krusty. The episode offers some glimpses of Krusty’s childhood in the real world through flashbacks. We learn that Krusty’s birth was the result of an affair that his father had. He grew up inconspicuous and secluded. When Kanami tells Krusty that he seems much more relaxed since the last time they saw each other, Krusty reflects that it is because now he knows that he doesn’t have to go back to his childhood home.

Yourei attacks Kanami’s party and Krusty with a mind-controlled Elias and a Raid Boss. Leonardo takes on Elias by himself while Krusty fights Yourei. After the Lelang Wolf Cavalry Guild arrives, they help Kanami’s party in defeating the Raid Boss. While battling Yourei, who is actually the Genius Papus, Krusty suddenly recalls that the Genius Bucaphi cursed him for his refusal to serve Bucaphi. Krusty lets go of some of his memories to increase his abilities and eventually wins against Papus.

Meanwhile, Leonardo tells Elias that the latter’s fans in the real world don’t see his inability to kill other living beings as a curse. They believe that it’s part of what makes Elias a hero. Overwhelmed by emotions, Elias breaks free of Papus’ control.

Krusty joins Kanami’s group as they make their way to Kamato. When the puppet show concludes, Shiroe figures out that the Geniuses originally come from the Moon Server. In episode 8, we might learn more about the Ancients and how they came into existence.
