While Freezing: Beyond Journey’s End usually a pretty quiet show, episode #9 promises to bring fans another one of those rare but excellent action scenes.

What happened in Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Episode #8?
Episode #8 begins by quickly resolving the cliffhanger from the previous episode and has Frieren easily defeating the demon that tried to kill her in her cell. Then, the conflict between the human leader Granat and the demon envoys soon began, with the demons easily dispatching human guards and taking Granat prisoner. Fern and Stark break into his castle to rescue him while Frieren leaves town. While Fern injures a messenger, they are both chasing after her and Stark while Frieren has a tense confrontation with the powerful demon Aura the Guillotine and her army.
Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Episode #9 will have some great battles
Based on the dramatic ending, episode #9 will likely feature two exciting battles at once. The battle between Fern, Stark, and the demons will likely be more intense because Stark and Fern are weak and the demons will likely ambush them with Lugner’s blood magic. The clash between Frieren and Aura would likely be very different due to how strong the near-immortal Frieren is. Lugner believes that she is a genius who has made many contributions to creating magic to harm demons, so it is possible that she will easily overcome Aura’s army. However, since Frieren himself stated that Aura is very strong, the demon leader could cause her some trouble.
While the show doesn’t typically focus on these bombastic battles, it has repeatedly shown that it can do them well when needed. Since this will be the most action-oriented episode, the show’s creators could go all out and create fights that match or surpass other boundary-pushing anime this season like Jujutsu Kaisen. If they do then Freezing: Beyond Journey’s End episode #9 Could be one of the best of the year
Do not miss Freezing: Beyond Journey’s End episode #9 when it airs on Crunchyroll on November 3, 2023.
