Front Line in Distant Waters (絶海のフロントライン, Zekkai no furonto rain) is the ninth episode of the Unlimited Fafnir anime series. It premiered on March 5, 2015.
Meanwhile, the Counter-Dragon Squad finally arrives at the volcanic island that will become the sight of their battle against Basilisk. Upon disembarking, Firill gives Yuu a one-day ticket for the exclusive use of the island's hot springs as a means of thanking him for his help regarding the matter between Lisa and Mitsuki. Yuu visits the hot springs the same night, but is shocked when the rest of the girls also come in, forcing him to hide. Firill discovers him and explains that she wished to further reward him by allowing him to see the naked bodies of girls. Yuu is almost discovered, but is saved by a timely emergency call. Mitsuki then informs everyone that NIFL's operation against Basilisk will begin tomorrow.
The next morning, everyone gathers together at the briefing room, where Major General Dylan explains Basilisk's ability and NIFL's plan against to destroy it by dropping a mithril-coated bomb, Mistilteinn, on it. The plan is put into action the same night and, intially, Basilisk seems incapable of destroying the bomb with its Catastrophe. However, Basilisk proceeds to fire an even stronger version of Catastrophe from a third eye hidden in its back, evaporating Mistilteinn. At the same time, Tear's dragon mark heats up, causing her to collapse in pain.
Differences between Light Novel and Anime Edit
- In the light novel, Yuu was almost discovered in the hot spring due to Tear stumbling upon him and raising her voice at Firill.
- Major General Dylan's doting on Tear is omitted from the anime.
