    From the creators of Rage of Bahamut comes a show set at a school where humans, gods, and demons all coexist, which has quite a different feel from the Rage of Bahamut series where these three races all fought and set the world ablaze.

    Airs: Sunday, January 20, 2019

    Mysteria Academy is a prestigious magic school that teaches magic without discrimination to the three factions (men, gods, demons), who usually are engaged in battle with each other. Two of the academy's students are Anne, a princess and honor student, and Grea, a princess born from a dragon and a human.

    Episode 1

    Princess, meet half-dragon.

    The setting sure feels just like in Rage of Bahamut, except that it's much more peaceful as everybody is learning as equals, at least in this school. The scenery is definitely the same, all while there are the humans, the gods, and the demons that are all getting along well here. Pretty much, this is all introductions here as Anne is a princess, Grea is a half-dragon that she quickly makes friends with, and Owen is a knight who protects Anne, and perhaps realizes that he takes his job a bit too seriously. A nice start here as the animation quality is pretty good for a short, all while the characters are an interesting bunch. It's great to see episodes being half-length seeing that it was originally supposed to be 1/3 length before problems forced the production to be suspended, but at the same time it's only going to be 10 episodes long. And I'm not exactly sure what the deal is with having Owen's story after the credits as it just feels awkward, and I have to think that it was just something tacked on at the end with the extra run time it got.

      In this episode, we learn that Anne likes destroying libraries (which seems to have become a regular occurrence) and she really, really Grea's tail sheddings. And she's a stupid girlfriend.

        So Anne definitely has her interests much to Grea's charging. Also Grea leveled up in terms of chest, tail and even hair.

          Re: Episode 2

          Time to shed some skin.

          All of the sudden, Grea is not feeling to hot, and Anne was scrambling to fix whatever ails her going as far as to seek the forbidden library. But in the end, it was just her molting, which happens naturally for a dragon. Quite a dramatic way for things to turn out what ultimately was nothing close to being life-threatening. But it's all good as now Anne realizes she has some valuable materials for alchemy in her shed scales. Lots of exaggeration going on here between that, and Grea's perceived weight problem.

            Have some fashion sense.

            That was a nice episode there where Anne and Grea go on a shopping trip where it is revealed that Miranda is a fashionista specializing in otaku culture outfits. That was pretty cute seeing those two dressing up there, and that ending there goes to show how into fashion Miranda is. Too bad Grea got dragged into this knowing full well that she's not exactly well-versed in fashion as putting on clothes is just too much trouble.

              It's better as a duet.

              It's exam time, and Anne has no problem with them as after all, she is there to hit the books so that she can become the queen someday. And between studying, she goes up to some desolate place to play the piano. Of course, she just isn't feeling it playing in front of nobody, but in comes Grea to play along with her, and the mood there improves by leaps and bounds. Just an beautiful way to describe the situation there as there wasn't much dialogue here going to show that exams and piano require silence. And of course, her test results are amazing seeing that not only did she get a perfect score, but she plowed through it quickly.
