Hortensia Saga Episode 7 Spoilers

In episode 6, Alfred and company are tasked by Dalmas to investigate the rumors that Princess Mariel has been spotted in Juni Island. The episode opens with Mariyus telling Deflott about a popular island legend involving a princess and a giant. The group discovers that the “princess” they are looking for is predictably fake. She is a local woman named Marie who has been pretending to be Mariel with her childhood friend Jim’s help.

It initially started for them as a way of making each other feel better. But then others mistook her as Mariel, and things quickly went out of hand. Overwhelmed by the Orthodox Church’s taxes and constant attacks from the monsters, the people of the island were looking for a source of hope, and that’s what Marie became.

Mariyus convinces Marie to tell the truth to her ever-growing followers, while Alfred and others make Jim understand that revealing the truth will be the best course of action for Marie. As Marie addresses the crowd, Saria and Elva arrive, having heard the same rumors as Alfred and company, and start attacking the crowd. Saria and Elva take control of a mechanized giant and send it towards Marie and Jim.

Mariyus joins Jim and a few locals as they try to protect Marie from the giant. They manage to topple it, but Mariyus fails to get out of the way in time. Suddenly, the legendary giant appears and saves the disguised princess. In episode 7, the group might visit another ghost town like Petale Village and encounter otherworldly monsters. Here is the trailer for the next episode.
