Very interesting this show is left with poor popularity and couldn't get the sequel.

It's one of the few shows with amazing world building. Mangaka has a vast knowledge of European history, geography, nations, interactions of the nations, and she managed to create a mini version of historic Europe in Istanbul territory with a completely fantastical setting. I find this incredible.

Characters are well ...

Let's start with the good. The only reason why I even started watching ...

Preliminary (23/24 eps)
This absolutely butchers the manga. So many scenes were cut out and shortened down to almost nothing, and plenty of scenes were changed for the worse. Even some characters are cut from the show.

The opening songs are nice and so is the animation, as is the soundtrack and voice acting, but this anime bares little resemblance to the manga it's adapted from.

At the start it wasn't so bad, it had the characters and the scenes, there were some deviations but nothing that was ...
