Okay, I read the synopsis of this on MAL and on HiDive and to be honest, I still don’t know what the show is actually going to be about given both of those descriptions seem to describe the events of episode 1. So maybe we’re just going to be repeating this for a season? Anyway, Ani is a Princess from a small kingdom and because her father is injured she has to go sign a peace treaty in a neutral Kingdom. There she meets the Princes of neutral Kingdom and the one her Kingdom was at war with and they are both just a little bit strange. Outside of that, I’m not sure what this is about.
This show hadn’t actually been on my radar at all but it came along on HiDive so I gave the first episode a go and found myself kind of enjoying it. It is sill and over the top and the story isn’t very clearly established, but I didn’t feel myself marking time while watching it and by the end I kind of want to know what awaits Ani (and Teo because he is sure to tag along) in the next episode.
Teo and Ani are definitely playing their roles straight making them kind of the least interesting characters we’ve me but it is necessary given every other character we met looks like they are auditioning for the lead role in a high school drama production.
Very little is learned about the characters though some relationships between them have started to be established and there might be some actual intrigue if the show decides to look at some of that, but really what this episode did was bring a group of eccentrics together, let the bounce off one another for awhile and then sent them all home. What happens next is still kind of unknown so the show could end up being quite a fun ride or could just become a tedious slog of poorly repeated jokes.
So on that note I’m firmly putting off making any kind of decision about this one, however I will be watching the next episode.
Thanks for reading.
