The third season of Zero No Tsukaima ended a month ago so this post is very late. Nevertheless with the three seasons still fresh in my mind, let me just pen down some of my thoughts before I delay any further.
I picked up the series three months ago and watched it daily. I have forgotten what exactly influenced me to watch it. Maybe it was the many figures of the pink haired tsundere protagonist or the various blog posts around the anime blogosphere.
I enjoyed the first two seasons more than the third season. Season three seems to be getting repetitive with the whole Saito getting beat up by Louise for looking at big-chested girls, Louise having low self-esteem of her magical ability and worrying that Saito might leave her. I also find that the amount of echiness is more than the first two seasons, which can be rather distracting.
Below is a run-through of the characters that left an impression on me.
A modern day average boy who was summoned by Louise as her familiar. Saito seems to possess a charisma that attracts girls to fall for him.
The princess of Tristain who eventually becomes the Queen. I like her simply because she look so kawaii~.
The captain of the Tristain musketeers who debuts in the second season. I admire strong resolute female characters. Too bad she had very limited screen time in season 3.
A busty innocent elf who rescued Saito at the end of season 2. Doesn’t play a significant part in season 3 other than distract Saito with her assets. Somehow she reminds me of Mikuru. Not sure why.
Short blue hair, megane, doesn’t speak much, talented. She’s the carbon copy of Yuki Nagato! She’s the last person I would expect to fall for Saito but ya it happened.
Another one of my favourite characters in the series. A cheerful and beautiful girl who works as a maid at the magic academy. She has a crush on Saito and believes she will make a better lover as compared to his abusive master, even going as far as resorting to using seduction to win his affection. Why doesn’t this happen to me?
Louise’s seiyu also voices Nena in Gundam 00.
