This was certainly one of the toughest confrontations that Diablo has had to face since arriving in this world. I’d say his status as OP protagonist has been brought down a bit. In some ways it reminds me of Nanatsu no Taizai. You start off with really powerful protagonists but either quickly bring in powerful enemies or limit the main character in some way. He’s not starting from level 1 here, but he’s starting to find enemies that are either crafty or powerful enough to give him a challenge. And I’m fine with that. He’s gotten his feet wet in terms of getting used to this situation, so now he can handle being legitimately challenged. Thankfully for him this body doesn’t feel pain nearly as severely as his normal body would. Otherwise I’d say the pain of getting his arm removed or his heart stabbed would be too much.
