Shironeko Project: Zero Chronicle (Episode 10) – The Gentle Song of Darkness

Shironeko Project ZERO Chronicle Title

Darkness is attacking and the Queen of Light is leading the fightback, but her knight commander is off on a quest that she told him not to go on. Meanwhile, the Prince of Darkness has got his hands full!

What happened?

The monster attack on the village was brutal and unforgiving, leaving only one survivor. A black knight who called himself Sheer arrived at the village and found the boy digging a large hole. There was some talk of the Black King of Darkness and how he is not watching over the people of the land. Sheer reveals he had tried to become the king but lost. He believes that the boy may be able to succeed where he failed and gives him his sword and sends him to the capital.

In the sky, the Queen of Light is busy fighting off another wave of attacks from the King of Darkness. The attacks are becoming more frequent and she fears that they may not be able to hold them back for much longer.

Shironeko Project ZERO Chronicle Episode 10 Phious

What did you think?

I know I shouldn’t expect anything else from this series, but come on with the boring cliches. I hate the trope of someone just pushing through and getting what they wanted by being stubborn and not thinking through their actions. Wasn’t this quest supposed to impossible? At least make it seem vaguely impossible. I’m just finding this series to be utterly infuriating. It’s not even funny anymore, it’s boring. At least it has an impressive soundtrack and doesn’t look horrible, but this story is really badly done.

What have you learnt?

This is easily the worst of the seven shows I’m reviewing this season and I had such high hopes too. In general, I’m a big fan of tropes as they let you know what’s coming and if they’re not there the story can feel off, but this series is just using anything it can shoehorn into the show and it isn’t working. On top of that, the characters are all incredibly flat and lifeless, with the exception of Groza who is the only good thing to come out of this series. It feels like this story was developed to fit a game, but it’s not a story as much as a bunch of poorly pieced together moments. I’m not going to miss this one at all.
