What happened in Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Episode #18?
The final episode #18 features Frieren, Fern, and Stark arriving in the magical city of Außerst. Frieren and Fern have both registered to take the First Class Mage certification exam, which is said to be a challenge even for a mage of Frieren’s caliber. The episode also introduced many other contestants such as the murderous magician Übel and rival magicians Lawine and Kanne. The first part of the test pairs Fern with Übel and Frieren with Lawine and Kanne, sending them out to catch an elusive bird. While struggling to find and trap one for most of the day, the episode ends with Frieren seemingly finding a way to catch one.
Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Episode #19 will conclude the first phase of the exam
With the first two days spent on the first phase up and Frieren planning to catch the bird they need, episode #19 will almost certainly end the first phase. However, along the way, other test participants can attack them to eliminate them from the round. This is especially likely with Fern’s partner, Übel, who seems eager to use any excuse to kill the magicians. This could lead to some interesting battles that show off the various abilities of the mages who haven’t had much screen time yet, and could help create some tension going into the second phase of the exam.
With episode #18 serving as more of a setup episode for the overall arc of the First Class Mage Exam, episode #19 hopes to delve deeper into the characters themselves and help viewers care about these new faces. The end of the first phase of the competition could also yield some unexpected results depending on how many teams make it through. Depending on what happens, this could turn out to be the best installment in Frieren’s already excellent fantasy story. This exciting part is just starting so fans of Freeze: Beyond Journey’s End When should you expect it? episode #19 released on Crunchyroll on January 19.
