OP Theme: Soshite Boku wa… by Sakakibara Yui [Youtube] – This was placed at the end of this episode however it is obvious that it is the opening scene. I am very pleased to say that this was a brilliant song which was both high paced and had alot of good animation. I cannot really say anything bad about this!
Summary: We are thrown right into a battle scene that is to be fought soon. A girl named Priecia and a boy named Hyaweh (I know… weird names) are discussing the battle and discussing tactics to win. They both discuss Hyaweh’s ambitions to become a knight and protect his kingdom. After a little bit of flirting between the two, a strange lady attacks the two of them who calls herself Sister Hell (Can’t say she is the scariest character I have seen). The two are overpowered until their party members Kagura, Fel and Karin arrive and use their special skills against her.
Sister Hell summons a giant demon which forces one of its claws down upon the group until a barrier is created, tempoarily protecting the group from harm. Kagura, who summoned the barrier starts getting nervous which weakens the barrier until it can no longer hold out the force. They are all prepared for this however and Fel and Kagura cast their magic on it to both cover him with ice and then cast fire to burn it. Hyaweh and Priecia attack it with their swords and when all hope is lost, Hyaweh grabs hold of Priecia and uses his special move which causes the sword to rise up quickly and do a combo attack which manages to destroy the creature. This episode ends with Hyaweh and Priecia having a kiss
Story 2: There are flashbacks (Let me warn you now, there are alot of them so I will put the whole story of the flashback here) about a young boy named Meistel who ran into two siblings named Princea (I assume that is how you spell her name) and Hans (*Sigh*). All three all got along very well however their time together was cut short and the two had to leave for their kingdom again. While saying goodbye to them (Running Beside the Carridge) he told them that he would train to become a knight and would meet Hans again after he also became a knight. Princea gave Meistel a pocketwatch. However a year or so later, Hans ended up dying and Princea took over his mission of becoming a knight. The two managed to meet each other again in a hot springs.
Review: I am unsure about this series. The graphics are great, the music is great however the storyline seems to be very confusing and I had to rewatch this episode quite a number of times to write this review. I wish there was more linkage between the flashbacks as they just seemed to pop out of nowhere, and not only that, didn’t involve any of the characters in the battle we were witnessing. I will need to see another episode of this before I can decided whether or not to continue this.
