Since I’ve missed a day and I’ll compensate it today for a double daily post, but sadly, I’ll not be around in the next few days. What?! Well, I have to go into some vacation. But I’ll try to do my daily doses as much as possible. 😀
For today, let’s have Zetsuen no Tempest. It’s a bit underrated anime, but it’s a good one. 😉
One day, a sorceress princess was stuffed into a barrel and banished.
One day, a single girl was suddenly murdered, and the culprit still runs free.
And one day, a battle spanning time and space over magic and revenge began!
Sanity and madness, sense and intelligence, self-confidence and convictions.
The tragic tale of this irrational world starts now.
The Kusaribe family is a family of sorcerers under the protection of the “Tree of Origins”. Their princess, Hakaze Kusaribe, was the greatest sorceress of their family. But Samon Kusaribe, a member of their family seeking to resurrect the “Tree of World’s End”, a tree that opposes the “Tree of Origins” and controls the power of destruction, stuffs her into a barrel, and banishes her to a deserted island. From the deserted island, she sends a message out to sea, which is picked up by Mahiro Fuwa, a young boy who’s sworn vengeance upon the criminal who killed his little sister, Aika. Mahiro agrees to help Hakaze under the condition that she find Aika’s killer with her magic. But once Mahiro’s best friend and Aika’s lover, Yoshino Takigawa is rescued from danger, he too gets dragged into this tale of revenge. (Source: MyAnimeList.net)

At first, I’m a bit bored of it because I feel it’s a typical heroes and villains struggling to solve a mystery, but it changed my outlook of it when Yoshino started to show his way of things and manage to outwit Samon. I also liked how it revealed the way of the story. Surprising the connection of Aika, not just a love interest, but something more shocking. All in all I liked how the story goes, like the art and the characters.
