They’re making a come back!
Jeanne isn’t dead just yet. The Philosopher’s Stone can sustain her as long as her head remains. Still, she’s going to need some healing. The loss of her heart has placed her into a comatose state. Now, legend has it that a mystical sword can be found within Brittany. Using the power of the sword will patch Jeanne right up. However, reviving Jeanne isn’t the only issue going forward. After the devastating blow of the previous battle, they are without a solid front line. A fresh set of troops are a must if Orléans is ever to be secured. Both these tasks at hand are equally important to the war effort, so we’re splitting up! One group shall seek out Escalibor, and Montmorency shall venture back home. It’s time to look back at what Montmorency ran away from.
The house of Montmorency is one of the oldest and most distinguished noble houses of France. During this period it was being led by Montmorency’s grandfather. A grandfather that Montmorency has very little love for. Since Montmorency’s childhood, he was pushed into marrying his cousin for wealth. However, he did not wish to force his cousin into this. Going against his grandfather’s wishes, Montmorency took Catherine on as a little sister. These two became very close until Montmorency locked himself inside the alchemy tower. Regardless of all that time passing, troubles remained at home. Montmorency’s grandfather has the troops to lend out, but only if Montmorency will bed Catherine. This is something Montmorency refuses to do because of his recent oath to Jeanne, yet Catherine isn’t against it. Nevertheless, these two have come to an agreement to fool their grandfather. Just a night of embracing her should do the trick for 2,000 troops.
This week’s episode finally had a long forgotten character return. Nicolas Flamel has shown his face to us once more. His arrival also comes with the explaination of why he called Montmorency the beast of apocalypse. Turns out, Montmorency was born under an unlucky set of stars. He was destined to bring calamity to the world. Flamel pled to Montmorency’s grandfather to kill him, yet there’s no way a grandfather could kill his infant grandson. Believing that there could be another way, Gilles de Rais was allowed to live. His destined fate may not change, although maybe love may lead him astray. Anyhow, it’s time to reinforce the line yet again. Enjoy the night of hand holding!

Hope is out there, now we just have to find it. Stay tuned for the next phase of this war here at, Anime Solution!
I somehow got a feeling that this show won’t be ending well. XD I know it’s too early to tell, but the story development is really a mess.It skipped to next story without a detailed explanation (although we know the history of Jeanne d’Arc but hopefully it won’t be something as sad like that) and some character appearing out of nowhere. Every episode counts, with the remaining episodes to go, hopefully the studio can do something to save this anime.
Yeah, it’s unlikely that this anime will have a solid ending. Seeing as how this is somewhat trying to be historically accurate, well our hero and heroine don’t have a beautiful outlook. Jeanne should be coming back at least, so we got that to look forward to.
