Social status

Like all anime that includes a noble title, Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei touched on this “cliché point”. This is something that I think becomes essential to the plot in the vast majority of cases, as it offers an opportunity to add drama/suspense to the story. at the beginning of Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumeiwith the "Sentence" To euphie, the prince took advantage of his higher social status. Even without evidence Algard He had the advantage because his social status allowed him, since being so young and inexperienced, those present would not take action against the royal family.

Now in Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei - Chapter 8, anise is held by Moritz. This made me wonder why in this case none of those present supported her? Despite everything, she is also a member of the royal family and holds the title princess, one in particular present. Except that the guards obviously supported it Arcane Ministry, it didn't seem like all the nobles present did. Even if the other nobles had less status than the son of the Arcane MinisterI think "supporting" the royal family is advantageous enough in this case.

Personally, this whole scene seemed pretty weak to me in terms of plot. While I can understand what I think they were trying to demonstrate, I feel there was a lack of depth in being in a position of differing social status. Basically, I think the contribution of the "audience" is essential for the scene.

For the same reason I won't deny it, this part irritated me a bit. For me it was a perfect opportunity to deepen the plot. Although I don't know if this was something from the adaptation or the same thing happening in one of the sources.

The puppet that doesn't recognize it

As already predicted, the villain of Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei was that Arcane Ministry. And of course that too Algard he was used as a puppet. However, I accept that I was surprised to see that flashback from layman And Algard. After all, in this case it seemed to me that the character of Algard it was very well laid out.

Since his sister did not want the title, he was forced to accept the position of heir and began to see the world with his own eyes. Noticing how the nobles paid more attention to the princess, who cannot use magic, than to themselves. the prince Heritage. While he himself accepts that he has no talent, I don't think that's necessarily his fault anise.

I assumed he grew up under constant pressure and with a title he never wanted. He ended up in the cage in his own way and at such a young age he was the perfect object to be manipulated like a puppet. While I think the character has a suitable background and potentially great future development, that doesn't mean he's slow for important things. even his own Pinocchio I knew it was apuppet“. By that I mean that at this point Algard He thinks he's shaped his own personality and perspective on how the world works, but he doesn't notice odd little details, like the fact that the Arcane Minister could have "visited" him even though he was under house arrest or known to be so layman had a Magicit. Ah, indeed Algard Did you think that information of this importance could be known to everyone and shared?

So far the character is the the prince Algard I seemed annoyed with the way he was showing himself. However, I can't deny that I felt the character had a lot to prove. And I'm glad to have seen how the background that forged the character was shown a bit.

Frankly, the beginning saw a development in character that would lead him to evangelization, realizing his flaws and losing his social status to become a more complete one commoner. Start a new life and learn about the real world. At this point, however, it seems to me that the character should die. And not because I find it annoying, but because I feel that the weight it has in the plot would lead it to a fateful ending for proper development. Both the story and the character.

By the way the Algard he would embed himself Magicit in your body is another "tightrope walk". Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei. aslant And anise They had knowledge that could make them achieve it the way they did, but,Algard just bury it in his chest and absorb it completely? So easy? Even if it was necessary for the suspense of the moment, the fact that it didn't leave a single visible trace seems very strange to everything that is shown in it previous episodes.

Overall I really liked it Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei – Chapter 8 because of the pace he carried. A roller coaster of emotions for me. Tension first arises with the attack on the manor house anise, all so that they cut it off at a good point. Something that really frustrated me and that continued with the scene as well Moritz. But he got me excited again with the possible confrontation anise against Algard. And frustrated once again because I gave it up for the next episode. So I expect a lot of action from the next chapter and not a fight that will be decided in a matter of seconds. I would also like to see what happened to me aslant and the Arcane Minister.
