“Oh, did you meet Excalibur? . . . Looks like it.”
– the Fairy
Soul wakes up from a nightmare and Maka panics. Later on, Medusa’s seen gloating because Soul’s a very good test subject. Soul tells a gloomy Maka not to worry much. Once outside the clinic, Maka’s father invites her to the rooftop.
In the library, Sid orders Black Star to clean and organize the library because even after completing their remedial lessons, they still have zero souls collected. After Sid left, Black Star pursued reading manga instead of doing his duty. Kid drops by to look for a book called, Excalibur. He explains the story to Black Star, and both end up dreaming of pulling the sword. Stein arrives and tells them that THE Excalibur does exist.
Back on the rooftop, Death Scythe’s isn’t making any progress with his daughter. Oho. Maka’s reading a book because she’s bored with his dad. Maka finally asks him what he thinks of her mom.
On some weird mountain, Kid asks Black Star to carry him since he’ll get wet if he stepped on the river. They see a fairy on their way and ask her if she’d seen the holy sword. She makes a face and leaves.
Once they see Excalibur, Kid couldn’t hide his glee – that is until Black Star pulls it out with ease. Kid, in all seriousness, asks him to do it again since it didn’t count. Kid wipes the handle first (OCD, again), before pulling the sword from the stone. They hear a voice and th sword transforms into – a weird, pure-white, penguin-like creature wearing a top hat and a shirt.
Oh, there’s still no progress with Death Scythe. Maka asks him about Ragnarok. Her father tells her that a weapon that takes the souls of humans lose their own soul, even if they become very powerful. Sid arrives to see the Library clean thanks to Tsubaki. Stein tells him that
Black Star has gone to acquire Excalibur, which prompts Sid not to punish Black Star over since meeting Excalibur is punishment enough. Back inside the mountain, Black Star and Kid muffle their laugh at the sword’s true appearance. Excalibur bores the duo with his story to the point of annoyance. Stein tells Tsubaki about Excalibur’s drawbacks.
Excalibur gives the two a list of one thousand clauses they should adhere to before transforming back into a sword. Black Star and Kid put the sword back into the stone with gusto. The fairy from before asks them if they met Excalibur. The duo grimace.
Back in Shibusen, Kid and Black Star shake hands. Maka and Soul pass by and Kid notices that they’re being laughed at. Maka tells them to come inside the classroom. Inside is Excalibur’s very colorful (and flowery) message: he’ll eternally wait for Black Star and Kid.
Complete waste of episode. Nothing really happens here – except finally meeting the annoying Excalibur.
