Lady Groza heads to the White Kingdom with another message from the King of Darkness. She’s tired but happy that she’ll get to see the Prince again… well, that’s what she thinks anyhow!
Not long after arriving Lady Groza is granted an audience with the Queen of White. Adel and the Prince of Darkness are already there and she can’t help but notice the Prince’s gaze falling on the Queen of White every time she speaks. Adel had just given a speech about how he was going to attempt to convince the King of Darkness to cease the war, but that now seems redundant as the King himself has asked for an extension of the ceasefire. Now, that they’re all friends, the Queen takes them on a tour of the kingdom which consists of her personal gardens. They exchange ideas, clothes, and then food as they get to know one another.
What did you think?
This is the synopsis for this series on MAL and Wikipedia…
In a world consisting of numerous isles, a young hero from the Astora Isle encounters the adventurer Kyle and follows him on an expedition on the isle. They meet a mysterious girl named Iris and a talking white cat, and together they make their way to the isle’s ruins, where they find a flying island. Kyle becomes consumed by darkness there, and the party resolves to travel to the ends of the world on the flying island in order to find the seven “Great Runes,” following Kyle’s words before he disappeared.
This is absolutely not this series. This series is officially boring as hell! Right from the off, we’ve got Lady Groza getting jealous of the Prince of Darkness looking at the White Queen. Come on! This episode can be completely skipped as it does nothing for an already tedious series. The most notable moment was Sheama and Lady Groza swapping outfits which seemed out of place and pretty much unnecessary. They’ve done nothing to make me care about anyone or anything.
What have you learnt?
I’m sure I’ve talked about setting the expectations of the audience and this series has failed to do this in the most incredible way. I feel like the synopsis is for some sort of follow-up series set some time after everything went wrong and the black and white kingdoms are no more. It’s also categorized as action, adventure, fantasy, magic. There’s no adventure and very little action. This series is absolutely a romance (and not a very good one). I feel completely let down by this series and really can’t see it recovering from these first six episodes which have seen it fall to the bottom of my viewing schedule. Oh look! Evil flying black cats… WTF!
