    Episode 1

    Alchemy will save the world.

    This is pretty much introductions as Montmorency had big dreams of becoming an alchemist that can put an end to this war. But of course, things don't go as planned as he was just failing at alchemy, all while the academy was closed down after the English forces reach the place. At least he had some good friends. So for seven years, Montmorency had been studying. Interesting start here, but it didn't say much about the direction of this show moving forward.

    So I'll give it some more episodes here as this was just introductory stuff and the real test comes next when Montmorency and Jeanne meet.

      Episode 2

      There are bigger things than boobs.

      So after an episode to introduce Montmorency, this one introduces Jeanne, and she's all too worried about her flat chest when there are bigger things to worry about like the English soldiers who were killing fairies left and right, all while there's La Hire, whose boobs make Jeanne so envious. Just when she was about to bite the dust, in comes the Philosopher's Stone that not only saves her life, but makes her a killing machine for three minutes. Pretty much, this was what I was afraid would happen after seeing the promo posters, but at least the story has some appeal.

        Episode 3

        Purity at stake.

        So Jeanne gets invited to the palace to see the queen, but all of this is a trap by Montmorency's stepbrother La Tremoille, who is after the Philosopher's Stone inside Jeanne. As such, Montmorency is thrown into the dungeon where Richemont happens to be, and Jeanne transforms into Ulysses mode once again. Well, that was just way too disjointed to make sense of things as it's pretty clear that it's not trying to be as serious as it should be.

        So I will give it one more episode just to see Jeanne's transformation into the warrior she became in history, but it's pretty clear that this show is a storytelling mess. At least it's nowhere near as bad as Conception is as it actually makes an attempt at crafting a story, just doing a really bad job at it.
