Han's high court general Kashin (何進) was forced to swallow a cursed pill from Chou Jou. The effect is slowly turning her into a cat, which she dislikes. Chou Jou also made use of the emperor's name to dispose her from the Han court as a traitor.
She met Kada during her escape while Kada brought her to the Touka village, whom he believes they would help her.
This is the third and final series that comprises the whole Koihime†Musou franchise. And, once again it did not let me down. Storywise is is really great, and not a lot of brainwork is involved to watch it, because it is light and fluffy with the occasional serious moments.
I like the change to chibi mode when things need to taken with many pinches of salt. And the series does climax in the final two episodes and it finishes off with everybody living happily ever after.
That catchy ending song is there, and everybody who has appeared in the series makes an appearence.
real gripe is that there were too many characters and often it was not easy to tell who was who. But, it also has the biggest collection of cute anime girls in any one place at one time. If you like boobies then this one is for you, and if you enjoy a lot of laughs and a mildish plot you may enjoy it as well. But, if like me you were just looking to have some enjoyment and to pass the time then I do recommend all 3 series.
Would a 4th season work? no. But I would like to see some sort of closure episode where everybody goes home.
Characters to watch? there are just so many, but Mouki Bachou, Gentoku Ryuubi, Shiryuu Chouu, and Unchou Kan'u stood out from the herd. And, if you look at it rationally, the story is really about a group of 3 girls who go out on a journey to find themselves and to kick bandit ass!
The 3rd Koihime Musou series continues where the second leads off; about some dreaded magic book, and its owner, that needed to be dealt with. A new enemy appears along with the 2nd season's enemy...
But you know. If you wanted to REALLY learn about China's "3 Kingdoms" era, you won't get it from the Koihime Musou franchise. As a matter of fact, you'll get more of the same: cute girls being cute, fanservice (which I don't have a problem with), and guys being dealt with in horrible ways.
I still think it's a horrible trade: Having some poor guy get beaten up just to
look up women's skirts or see them naked. It ain't like men beat up women for seeing them naked, right? Or did Wapan program their male population to be such pussies that they can't handle the opposite sex?
