Thunderbolt Fantasy, episode 7. We have spent the previous six episodes gathering the people with the skills necessary to reach the bad guy’s tower. Finally it is time to put those skills to use. So of course… they hide on the sidelines and let our hero take on the impossible challenges all by himself.
First he has to fight hordes of undead warriors all by himself.
Then he single-handedly takes down an enormous golem, all while his “friends” pretend they’re screwing up from the sidelines.
It was hilarious, I was dying of laughter. Only in Thunderbolt Fantasy would they spend multiple episodes building up to this punchline.
