Meikyuu Black Company Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, Kinji is ambushed by one of the people he owes money to. She warns him that she will kill him unless he hands over 5 million gold in one month. Meanwhile, Shia recalls her father, whose carefree, adventurous lifestyle caused much misery in the lives of her and her mother. She has grown up deciding to be the opposite of her father. This explains why she is such a devoted employee of Raiza‘ha.
The following morning, Kinji goes down to the dungeon with Shia and Wanibe. They kill several monsters, but Kinji soon discovers that the reward they will get for collecting the most precious parts of the monsters’ bodies will not even put a dent in his debt. At Raiza‘ha headquarters, the company prepares for the Death March, which causes all the mined demonite and vanquished monsters to return at once, including a Majin.
Kinji pays off his debt by setting up a Monster Farm. When the Majin appears, Shia realizes that she was placed in this part of the dungeon because her bosses knew that the monster would go after someone with high magic power. She gives a teleportation device to Kinji so he can leave the dungeon, knowing that it can only teleport one person. However, Kinji throws it at the monster, sending it to the surface.
He knows that it will return as it has locked on to Shia. So, with the help of the ants, he and Shia set up several traps. However, it’s ultimately Rimu who saves Kinji. The episode ends as Kinji falls into yet another portal that opens up under his legs. This time he has Rimu with her.
In episode 5, Kinji might find himself back in Japan. He might think that his horrible ordeal is over, but if he turns on the TV, he might discover that Rimu has come to his world with him and wreaking havoc in her dragon form.
