Saito Hiraga and Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière go on the offensive after the events of Zero no Tsukaima: Princesses no Rondo. Together, they face off against King Joseph in the Holy City of Romalia with the help of two others who control the power of the “void”. But in the midst of the many conflicts ahead of them, an ancient evil begins to stir in the shadows.
Will their close bonds blossom into something more or will they be shattered through the ever increasing difficulty of the tasks that they must undertake? Zero no Tsukaima F follows the story of Louise and Saito as they face their final challenges together.
Well, this is my first review, and I don't think I'm good at writing them, but I'll give a try.
I've scored the three previous season to 7, mainly because it was repetitive, and there was not this thing that embraces your mind and take you to an other world.
And then, I've watched this season, the final one. And it is perfect. Louise is becoming more and more mature, even if she keeps her tsundere style which is still funny (although it annoyed me a lot of times, but hey, it's who she is after all). For Saito, it's approximatively the same, he's growing too,
and we really see their relationship evolving...
About the scenes, there is a lot more romantic scenes than before, which is wonderful because their kind of different from the previous season, there is something that makes you feel good, and you're happy for them too in some way.
Since I was also obsessed by the magic scenes with void magic and all that, you should know that there's also a LOT more of these scenes, and I found that they were much more impressive.
I'm also noticing the OST which is just full of epicness (special note for the song "Passion" which I'm listening right now).
I think they did a really good work, this season embraces the whole series, and every episode makes you feel wonderful and the two final episodes are just so much awesome that you can't accept it is already over, and then you see how it was just a nicely dream in which you will go back someday...
Zero no Tsukaima F is the final season of the series and it features a young boy Saito getting abused by his master Louise. Stuff happens, Saito is extremely indecisive about his relationship with Louise, stuff gets fixed. Nothing new is really found in this season and I won't go too much into detail about the summary because hey, you should have seen the previous three seasons before you watch the 4th one, no?
So about the story.. heh. If you have seen the previous seasons, you'll have a pretty good idea what happens. Some stuff happens, maybe some random fanservice here and there, filler episodes
randomly thrown in out of nowhere, a problem occurs and is solved with usually an unrealistic solution that probably has some plot holes. And by plot holes, I don't mean "look very deep into the anime" ones, I mean "wtf how did they just do that it didn't make any sense at all" kind of plot holes. It takes the fantasy genre to a whole new level and again, not in a good way (SPOILER example: Saito stealing a fighter jet from a military base in 2 seconds). Some of it can be attributed to the fact that the majority of the season was rushed but all in all, they really did not need some of the fillers; it was just a waste of time. If you're one of those people that like to have an intricate plot with plenty of BAM moments, this is not the anime for you. The plot is lackluster and very predictable. The ending was a perfect example of this. Personally, I thought the ending was very predictable but it fits the anime. Having said that though, ZnT is NOT about the story. If you have been watching this for the story, then I got news for you, choose something else to watch. The story here is just there to have at least some "meaning" between each episode, nothing special.
Al-right, the characters. The characters are again, nothing special. An abusive tsundere, some boobs, some more boobs, and a loli. This anime throughout the seasons has shown no character development, Louise and Saito were supposedly married at the end of season two but Saito is still an indecisive guy and Louise still blows him up. Usually this would lower the score as dynamic characters are always good but the thing is, it's what the anime is known for. This is why most people have continued to watch though the seasons. Sure, Saito will piss you off every time he ogles some girls breast because he completely lacks self-control or some other stuff that ticks you off. The non-changing character foils that have been constant throughout all four seasons is the selling point of this anime. You don't watch this to see some well thought out strategy like Death Note or the plain awesomeness of Steins;Gate, you watch this too see Saito getting blown up by explosions and the tsundere Louise being her usual self and the relationship between them. I will have to say that it will probably get tiring if you watch this in one go.
The sound doesn't really do much considering most of the BGM is just reused from the previous seasons. In some cases, it certainly does help set the mood and I loved how they reused one of the openings during one of the final episodes. The energetic OP also adds towards the enjoyment of the anime; it fits the mood. Though the EP isn't bad, the usage of it is certainly questionable in some cases. Something some by Rie Kugimiya doesn't really fit certain situations if you know what I mean.
The art wasn't really exceptional and doesn't take away from the anime itself. Not much to comment on this as it doesn't feature any special art style. The battle scenes were too short in my opinion.
I'm a Louise fan so this is probably biased but I really enjoyed the series overall. If I was to use by biased score, this would be a 10/10 just because I'm a huge Louise fan. That's kind of the thing with this anime, either you'll hate the characters (I don't think many people expected much out of the story anyways) or come to love em. The story was really annoying at certain points because of the number of episodes that were just pointless. They could have easily just spent a couple of minutes or not even included certain parts (really didn't need a episode dedicated towards the crowning of a queen) of the anime. The ending however, was probably the saving grace for this anime. I personally value a conclusive ending opposed to some random harem ending. Overall, I think that this season manages to set up the end of the series only leaving some minor plot holes. Watch this with a grain of salt in mind.
Feedback is appreciated as this was my first review.
Zero no Tsukaima F
I thought that i was going to hate this season just like as the third season, but surprisingly this is the best season of the entire anime, everything is improved and i finally enjoyed a lot a season of this anime and for once i didn't found pointless and annoying Louise and Saito's realationship
The story is very good, it was improved on this season, there's just two stories to follow, the mission that the queen Henrietta gave both of the two to see the pope and see what the Pope wants with them and the other story is the finally growing relationship
between Louise and Saito, finally there's not hate-love between them, but more love, more romantic and that was great, finally something that i wanted the producers to make, and both stories are well paced; The story to make all the void magic users to be reunited because there's is a profecy that a big Dragon will destroy the world and only the four void users can stop him, but it's interrupted because one of the Void users is the enemy and will not help them, the things get complicated... meanwhile Louise and Saito's bond gets stronger and stronger and will have a pleasant ending for them, but not for me, because finally they were really close to eachother and i wanted to see that since the beginning.
Art & Animation
The art and animations really improved, it was colorful and brighter, and smooth, it was the best of the four seasons, the overall was very good.
The sound was the same, with little changes but still was good.
Finally they developed Louise and Saito, and it was a big improvement, the other characters weren't behind on improvement neither, finally we get to know more a lot of their background, overall it was very good.
The only season that i enjoyed a lot and wanted every season to be like this, because i felt like they restarted and improved everything on a good way, the ending left me wanting more, because they finally are together and trusth eachother and i liked how Louise changed from being the kind of tsundere that i hate to a calm tsundere like Taiga when she was with Ryuuji.
Zero no Tsunami F is the final and last sequel to "Familiar of Zero" series.
I am very excited to review this show as this was also a pathway for me to enjoy and love anime. Please start with season one.
Zero no Tsunami F and it's prequel may be your classic harem with a Tsusendere and a average boy as your main character with lots of girls surrounding him but this is worth the watch. Giving this show a 8 was a solid score surrounding this series as a whole but could have exceeded my expectations even more.
When looking at the 2 main
character which are Louise and Saito. You can really say that there relationship is funny, cute and overdramatic at certain times. When the manga was being adapted into an anime I was surprised that it lasted so long with four seasons completed. Tbh I think everyone had a thrilling ride watching this show.
Knowing this was a romantic comedy with a magic theme that had been included gave it a refreshing feeling to the viewer as each sometimes episode contained a element of randomness which gave us a comedic and light refreshing feel towards the show.
The anime begins by continuing to describe the adventures that follow the "Hero" Hiraga, Saito and the "unique women" called Le Blanc de La Vallière, Louise Francoise Better known as (Zero Louise) whom has a funny but cute relationship. Reference to the first season is where Saito appears from the human world to Tristein Academy.
This anime includes other genres such as comedy and drama that is centred around the main characters. The magic and dramatic elements are given at unexpected moments but that builds up the enjoyment. This however creates a very unique and always different situations between the main characters, but when we observe this situation we can a new picture that is created when a new cloud always get painted over the old. When watching the show you know these characters have a sense of little or no maturity at all (Really pushing it Louise there) and gives them the ability to tackle new challenges with awesome but hilarious methods. This type of lifestyle gives a pretty accurate description of the whole anime and it is pretty different from your usual romantic comedy that we occasionally see from time to time.
I find the pacing of the show to be slow/moderate in the viewers point but I am not judge. It tells us a story in a suitable manner that is executed with minor or no flaws at all. This allows the viewer to be entertained with none or little mood swings. If the series was any slower or faster I might have to change my thoughts on the shows progression.
Being a romantic comedy anime, It all comes down to Familiar of Zero being able to give us comedic and straight in the face lines. The interactions between different characters gives us different moments in were we just laugh hysterically or cry. You can relate to the characters emotions shown by facial expressions and the uneasy movement they might produce. Being a comedic anime I am certain it will make you laugh and give dramatic moments where you will not feel at ease.
Zero no Tsukami is a good way to enter a romantic comedy where you will be laugh away. When the audience try's to understand the characters I think they will judge them by there personality and how they interact and develop new bonds and feelings which tighten the show all together. This gives the audience a small feeling of the characters current emotions.
The comedy and drama may not seem new to most but with the addition of random twists and characters gives light to a whole new drama. on Classical comedy being one of them, It depends if the viewer has enjoyed it in which it has altered the opinion of the viewer towards the series. However having some magic included will also draw the audience closer and will have a significant influence on there overall opinion of the show.
Again having not read the manga I wouldn't presume that the anime is way off from its paper counterpart.
Having magic integrated into the show gives it a new light.
The anime try to tackle the development of relationships between characters through dramatic or random situations and through interactions and actions done by the characters which little by little develops more and more. The difference this show has compared to others of the same genre is how the characters are portrayed and overly influenced. We see the story from the main 2 characters however there is parts that give the views of the other characters as they encounter new challenges and develop new feelings towards them and others.
Thus telling us Zero no Tsukami gives us an enjoyable watch to take in and remember.
The design of the characters is well based given the date for this show and its prequel with little or some difference in facial features and expression.
The setting is wonderful and gives us a magical theme by the use of different light schemes and scenery. The colour used is simplistic and elegant giving a bright view of the setting.
Concluding this review. Zero no Tsukami was giving a different feel compared to its recommendations. I did not know wether I was gonna enjoy it or be completely bored and mad but I am glad I am safe as this turned to be an very good show whom anyone can enjoy no matter your age.
