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.

Okay, they are no longer in a war. If you missed the joke, all through the second season I felt like the show went out of it's way to constantly remind us that they were fighting a war. So that's done with now.

There's an attempt to shift the status quo by making Saito a proper nobleman because of his war time heroics. Because he's no longer a commoner the super thirsty queen suddenly thinks that's her cue to horn in on her childhood friend's lover, attempting to use royal justification for seducing him away. It'd be more forgivable if she wasn't just the worst. I'd ...

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 ...

The Familiar of Zero: Rondo of Princesses

I thought the quality of the series could hardly go down until I saw the third season. And what was my surprise here? I am actually impressed with myself for getting all 12 episodes through.

All seasons were already just below average, but this season was lacking in every area. Although the first two seasons had at least a solid conclusion, this was not the case here. Fan service has been turned up even further than before.

The point that scares me the most are probably the two protagonists at the time. Louise goes through ...
