Following his brave sacrifice in the war against Albion, Saito Hiraga is knighted and treated as an aristocrat, something that proves difficult for Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière. With their relationship no longer defined as the mighty Void mage and clueless familiar, she wonders what exactly this means for them.

While venturing to a castle, Louise is ambushed by a powerful mage named Sheffield. Battling alone, the young mage nearly faces defeat until Saito makes his appearance. The mystical and unknown nature of Void magic seems to be at work in the battle, and Louise begins to believe in the possibility of another Void user. Moreover, she realizes that Saito's magical rune is fading, and so a new adventure begins as they search for the elf who revived Saito in the past. The relationship between former master and servant faces a new challenge as they work to restore the runes and redefine the bond which holds them together.

This season at last gives the solution to the long-standing puzzle of Saito's fate, though we have to wait a bit to get it. This season of the show has a different vibe than the previous season. It is a mixture of adventure in season 1, with a sprinkle of risqué element in season 2, and topped with a slice-of-life theme. The show does not have a major overarching narrative, instead, we see the lives of the characters on a daily basis, with hints of a bigger story for future seasons.

The supporting characters who were the side characters in Season 2 take the limelight more ...

Mixed Feelings
Big expectations after a decent second season and big disappointment after watching Princesses no Rondo caused me to write this review.

Zero no Tsukaima: Princesses no Rondo is probably the most boring season of this anime. After a really enjoyable first two seasons, we are getting the same, repeatable plot, that gets really weird as the season progresses and absolutely no character development. I really liked the Zero no Tsukaima series, because of the characters, but repeating over and over the same behaviors is just frustrating and gives nothing to the plot.

Basically: Louise is still a despotic princess, unhealthy jealous of the Saito, despite everything ...

This season continues the steep decline of the [initially] decent story.

The love story between Saito and Louise still has some remnants of that endearing dynamic between a really innocent and feisty adolescent and her loyal and caring companion who is also an adolescent but more mature, however this is ruined due to the constant barrage of sexual situations Saito finds himself in, where he either acts confused instead of stepping away or he directly cheats on her and then acts innocent... Which I kind of understand because Louise at this point has opened up about her feelings yet still refuses to be anything but ...
