The anime is finally getting interesting and I’m actually pretty hyped. Here I was thinking that all hope for Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu was lost, but nope. Things are about to get spicy. Episdes six and seven had everything and I think that’s what made both episodes very entertaining for me.
We had betrayal, blood and gore. I think we even came face-to-face with the anime’s main antagonist and you know what? I think the antagonist (Caldmellia) seems to be a very interesting individual, she’s like the godmother to some effect pulling the strings behind the scenes, as she employs her followers to fulfill her bidding. Caldmellia reminds me of Maya Yotsuba from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei series or Quinella from SAO: Alicization.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming episodes because I feel like Caldmellia is going to be playing a rather significant role in the latter stages of the anime. It also feel like she can potentially be that person who has Wein up against the ropes, Caldmellia definitely feels like an individual who can match Wein through and through.
I’m very much looking forward to seeing how Wein manages this threat because it looks as though he’s taking this very seriously even if he plays it off as if it’s nothing. Wein as a character is someone that has slowly grown on me as each episode passes. I think episode seven was my favourite episode because Wein understood the implications he was in and understood that even if he doesn’t like it, much of his decision-making also directly effected the countries outside his speech of influence.
I also loved the fact Wein stayed true to his ideals and did not stand for Caldmellia’s request of killing what remained of the Marden’s military, ultimately preferring to go his own route. I also loved the fact that he killed King Ordalasse because he wanted to use the Flahm people as part of his hunting game. For starters, how dare he use the people who gave us Ninym as a means for hunting?! That is outragous and insanely cruel that people outside the Kingdom of Natra see the Flahm people as the lowest of the lows.
I wonder why all these countries outside of Natra have this take, what did the Flahm do? I want to know! I mean it’s nice that Wein is a person who holds them to a high regard in his court, which I assume also translates to Ninym’s people and given how he immediately killed King Ordalasse for trash talking the Flahm people, I assume that this is the case.
I’m definitely looking forward to what the latter half of the anime has to offer, I think it’s going to make for something very interesting. At least that’s the hope.
