The princess ALWAYS gets kidnapped. Damn you Zero Louise for your unexpected kindness…
Let’s get straight to the point. Take the legendary Void mage and try to use her for evil deeds. Why does it feel like the bad guys never learn? But it’s not entirely a bad thing. With a twelve-episode crunch, it’s vital to get rolling and not stall at, let’s say, Saito getting the bad dog treatment because he had a hard time picking between lemons and melons. But seriously, what a choice: one sweet and sour Lemon-chan or an astonishingly bold set of melons?
I like the trio of Kugimiya Rie, Hino Satoshi and Noto Mamiko in this series better their other JC Staff series. There’s something about being colorful and slightly more light-hearted that really grabs my attention. Plus, they get to explore the nature of this obvious misunderstanding in an arousing manner. It would be amusing, though, if Saito somehow did become Tifania’s familiar. I mean, besides his lady-hunting prowess, how else is he supposed to get Zero blasted at her first chance at envy? He already shares a bed with the maid so expand the harem!
Besides the new holy maiden look on Louise and Tifania, everything else about this series seems to be on the mark so far. All the side characters got their cameos, including Agnes’ (Neya Michiko) concern of the kingdom’s defenses, Monmon’s (Takahashi Mikako) continued annoyance at Guiche (Sakurai Takahiro), the wind sprite of Maricorn (Tokita Hikaru) and obviously the big bad incompetent King Joseph (Kosugi Jurota) sharing a smirk or two regarding the elemental use. Throw in some swordplay and Louise’s kidnapping and we got a plot. And a pretty decent one too, extending the previous seasons’ work into the finale.
GO Rating: 3.5/5
Can’t go an episode without a boom. Seriously, Lemon-chan?!
