Iruma Suzuki knows that thorough preparation and patience are strength and the key to surviving the harvest festival season in episode 6 of season 3.
Welcome to Iruma-kun Demon School! continued to deliver compelling, dramatic episodes in the fall 2022 anime season, giving monstrous students plenty of challenges at the harvest festival event at Babyls. So far, this unusual class has stood the test and surpassed Plus Ultra with their skills, and in Episode 6, Iruma Suzuki reveals another weapon in her arsenal that takes viewers by surprise.
Iruma has many weapons that are truly powerful, and he himself has the patience and wisdom to prepare for survival in the forest, which sets him apart from other demon students. Iruma’s long-term strategy paid off in Episode 6, and he’s going to need that crucial advantage against so much competition around him.
The first half of episode 6 focuses almost entirely on Iruma, who only has the blonde Team Leader to accompany him deep in the forest. Neither Iruma nor Lead is particularly strong or talented compared to the Alice/Sabnock fighting duo or the clever Jazz/Allocer pair, but the humble Iruma has a unique advantage: his human-like patience that. Unlike most demons, who like to act quickly and take reckless risks, Iruma is always concerned with survival and long-term planning. He spent 14 years working for his parents on Earth, learning to take care of himself and avoid danger to see another day. Iruma put that to practice here in the forest, gathering ingredients not for points but for serving his and Lead’s meals. If they don’t eat and recharge, they won’t be able to gather more materials later.
Iruma, unlike most demons, knows how to delay gratification and plan ahead. Lead followed Iruma’s lead and spent time acclimatizing to the forest, acclimatizing himself, and learning to think like a wild beast. That, combined with a delicious meal and leftovers, meant the two boys were playing by the rules of the jungle rather than the rules of the devil. Humans are the weakest creature in the jungle, on Earth or in the Underworld, so they must use their unique advantages and outlast everyone and everything else. While Iruma and Lead prepared for the battle ahead, the other demons fought in that battle, and there was bound to be a loser. Then, Iruma and Lead, in their own right, can rejoin the race and wipe out the others.
Iruma’s jungle survival plan is just one of a number of examples of how Iruma thinks and acts here in the Netherworld. He has the ENFJ personality type, meaning he’s people-oriented and emotionally sensitive, but he’s also a skilled planner with principles, so he’s not reckless or short-sighted. close to what I do. Iruma has its own spiritual manual, with every strategy tested by seasoned experience. He will gladly help others and make friends with them, but he has to be careful and deliberate about that. Iruma can’t afford to do everything as he goes, and he can’t rely on demonic powers either because he doesn’t have one. His intellect is his best weapon.
Iruma waited until the last moment to challenge that monster at Walter Park with his ring, making sure he had the right strategy and timing to win. He then trains with Bachiko, spending time figuring out why he’s so hungry to win. Iruma needed clear principles and goals to motivate him, and when he had the answers, he finally formed his true bow. Now, in Episode 6, Iruma once again uses her extroverted but calculating mind, overturns the Underworld and fights not now but later. No other demon will see it coming, and it will surely pay off in the long run. That said, he must not let his guard down against strong opponents like Oroboas Coco or the Ichiro/Niro pair. Iruma may have an unexpected advantage, but the battle has only just begun.
