The Treaty sought for peace between the Union and the Alliance, but Marrine refuses, insisting to run the Union and the Treaty to the ground. No mention of them was made and nothing was talked about. Romeo and Juliet, the Shakespeare play didn't focus on war as much as the romance, because surprise surprise, it's a romance first and foremost, and another important part is that there's tragedy involved. The Rossini family members frequently call upon their subjects to be enthralled by omerta as a sign of their fealty and Phederico uses it on the group of assassins he sends against Theo at the Lords' Congress. The series chronicles the story of Siluca Meletes and Theo Corano as the two hopes to end the conflict between humanity themselves and defeat the demons.
On the other hand, there are also characters that dedicates themselves to their own devoted duties such as Aishela, Irvin, and Margaret, and Marrine. That's even what made Theo realise that she has a. He attempts to fulfill Salvador's last command to him to defeat Irvin to the letter even after Salvador is dead. Aristocrats are a common sight and stands at the high tier of society. He includes Theo as part of retinue for the major events he hosts in Castle Unicorn, gives him important assignments such as pacifying the Forest of Eternal Darkness, and has him as a significant part of his campaign against the Alliance en route to the Lords' Congress, where he engenders two major plot points by introducing Theo to Phederico Rossini and Alexis Doucet.
Once Emma and Luna are freed, Clara dispatches the two demons Yana had summoned with ease. Once again, there are exceptions, we have seen some good blonde love interests in other anime romance subplots before but not as often as one might expect. Several states are merely ruled by whatever Lord came along and knocked off the previous one, claiming his or her Crest and lands in the process. Milza blocks Irvin's attack and knocks him off his horse by contorting in his saddle such that he's hanging on with one leg and then pulls himself back onto his horse while still running at full gallop. While you could say that these two are perfectly suited for the show, they do make mistakes as well. Even Siluca has her own moments that are sometimes worth quoting despite her personality.
Thankfully, the action is passionately animated. Often choosing a path with the least violence, Theo does engage in fighting if he feels absolutely necessary. A third of the mages are still loyal to the Academy, including Alex's contracted mage: they ask that their contracts with the lords they are serving to be voided, while the remaining mages destroy their wands in a gesture of secession from the Academy, as well as to avoid being tracked and eavesdropped upon by them. He would later become leader of the Altirk Treaty, then ascend as Emperor when the Factory Alliance and the Fantasia Union was unified with the engagement of their leaders. Unfortunately, most of these characters have flaws like the way humans do.
That Alexis is entirely unwilling to affirmatively use his unquestioned popularity and status among the Union Lords to dictate policy doesn't help either. While Marrine does need to build consensus and seek out the support of her fellow Alliance Lords, she wields a great deal of unitary power and is not afraid to utilize it. As the Altirk troops head to Jalucia, the conference site, Forbes and Clovis are two points of passage that they must conquer. Notably, some of the storyboards used for one of the show's cruelest antagonists Milza are suitably moody with alienating points of view constantly hiding him in shadows. Rewatching Grancrest after witnessing how it develops in the second half led me to pick up on many details I had initially ignored. However, Priscilla's Crest did not turn into a Chaos Core, as the Pope had hoped.
Voiced by: Japanese , English Lassic's contracted mage and a former acquaintance of Siluca from the mage academy. Of course they made a couple of good shows but they are more of an exception to the rule. After he defects to the Alliance, he comments contemptuously on the fate of Gallas and Alexis' indecisiveness. Voiced by: A werewolf from the Forest of Eternal Darkness and one of the Werewolf Queen Clara's sons. Seeing what's going on, Theo tries to send back the volunteers back to the castle and prevent casualties, but with Siluca's urging, changes his mind when the volunteers show their willingness to fight.
His stance is ultimately proven to be right, although the Union doesn't take this tack until after Gallas' death. Action scenes are dynamically directed with many different fighting styles used, with different animators hired throughout the series to keep this approach to telling the story refreshing. He can lift a man impaled on his sword with one arm from horseback and later pulls off an especially impressive feat of taking a full-on attack from Aishela, whose Artist abilities allow her to tear apart infantry with ease and is this trope in her own right, and knocking her back while still being fast enough to disable Emma and Luna, who were attempting to attack his unguarded sides. Even after fighting through an entire bridge of enemies, he's still powerful enough to survive an entire volley of Crest bullets from the Waldlind knights, a weapon powerful enough to destroy castle fortifications, and have a conversation with Marrine before kicking the bucket. Nothing wrong with all these, but the question remains.
So it's first episode started off very conveniently in such that Theo appears out of nowhere, beats the Lord after coming out of nowhere, and picks a somewhat scantily clad girl after as mentioned not unlike most other isekai or fantasy anime, but I'm not complaining, nothing wrong with fanservice I say :P , coming out of nowhere. Mages Voiced by: Japanese , English The head of Villar's corps of contracted mages. Enabled also by Alexis, whose peaceful nature, lack of decisiveness, and refusal to fight Marrine allow the peace faction of the Lords' Congress to hold sway. Once again, it's a show about war so it should have a proper description of what battle tactics are right? She's militaristic and pragmatic, preferring force as a straightforward strategy when warranted and during Theo's rise, she holds few compunctions against selling his services to either the Alliance or the Union wherever it might help Theo. Even with Marrine blatantly putting the Alliance on the warpath and making her intentions to conquer the continent all but plain, the majority of the Union Lords are too wedded to the status quo to do anything about it. Another great way the villain is portrayed is through the striking thicker lines and his character design being engulfed in darkness aside from his eye and weapon, perfectly conveying the intimidation meant to be felt by the heroes.
What was supposed to be a joyful occasion that would establish peace between the Fantasia Union and the Factory Alliance, the marriage of Sir Alexis Douse and Lady Marrine Kreische, was instead a tragedy. Bottom line is, A-1 produced so much garbage in recent years I'm weary of titles from them. She immediately marks him as one of her most dangerous enemies. He's defeated and Villar's Crest is recovered by Theo after killing him. Three years later, Theo and Siluca are wed in a double wedding with Alexis and Marrine. At the end of his first major fight on screen, he's crouching in some bushes with his mage, hiding after the Waldlind forces have annihilated his cavalry. This makes his desire to join Milza in his final charge into Theo's ranks an especially poignant moment.
Even though he loves Siluca, he always put his duty first over family. Although on the cliched Shoujo side. He has that intention, anyway, as he now sees Lord Villar as weak. As Milza tries to take the battle to shore, Lord Regalia escapes with his own life after his vanguard was eliminated when King Solon comes to the rescue, at the cost of his defeat at the hands of Lady Marrine's forces. Shown as one of the primary reasons he detests Theo, who embodies the rise of the common people to power, something that Milza, who endorses the rule of great men who will emerge as Lords, cannot condone. She was underused and overblown at the same time.
