Zero no Tsukaima: Princess no Rondo

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 no change and is the same melodramatic crying habit and chews the same thing over and over again. Even if you add sad music to it, the scene doesn't get more emotional. The characters have no real depth, nor are their dialogues well written. In the last episode alone they just talked in the sand for almost 4 minutes.

And then there is the protagonist Saito. Not only that he has already confessed his love to Louise 10-20 times, no. He lets every woman close to him running forward, starts everybody on the breasts, feels aroused as soon as any girl jumps in, and doesn't get rid of here. But in retrospect, he wonders why the two pro episodes have a relationship crash twice. And honestly, we used the scene in the Louis explosion or both of them bitch, we've already had countless times. Individuality is a foreign word here.

Certainly, as long as you reduce your demands FAR, you can be satisfied with the work. He also has one or the other highlight moment when I thought "Ok, that was actually amusing / cleverly written" but these moments are in a massive minority.



No lie, the plot is still there. But it has been pushed into the background so fragmented. 90% of all scenes are balanced either by comedy or by fan service. The plot amounts to 5% per season. And one cannot speak of a great plot so far anyway. However, there is at least potential behind it.


Animation/pictures Nothing changed since season 2 and stayed mostly dull. You still go to great lengths to animate your breasts like excellent jelly. I can still see where the budget is going.


The new character is also superior to the protagonist duo. Basically, each supporting character is a much more interesting character than the two actual protagonists. And it was the same with the new elf. However, nothing has changed in terms of the characters, it's the same result as before.


The Osts stayed the same. The intro was very weak this time. The first two seasons had a slightly more individual intro.



Below-average performance no matter how I look at it. You can watch this title, but you shouldn't have any expectations in characters, story, or romance.
