Madan no Ou to Vanadis Episode #13

It’s time for the finale in Madan no Ou to Vanadis, and Tigre got his groove back after what happened to Bertrand. I’m gonna miss that old guy…

Heck, even Titta is sad that he’s gone up to heaven! Don’t worry, Sir Bertrand will be given a funeral service after this.

Moving onto this episode, Prime Minister Pierre Badouin has arrived to deliver a news regarding the King of Brune.

It was revealed that the king was poisoned by Duke Ganelon. Although the king has recovered, his body won’t last long. Good job poisoning the Brune king and get away with it, Ganelon!

With one bastard duke gone but got away scot-free unfortunately, the only antagonist left that poses a threat to Tigre and his army is Duke Thenadier.

And so, the final battle commenced with Princess Regin acting as the supreme commander. Of course, her role is limited to a figurehead for moral support, just like Princess Raynesia from Log Horizon where she rally the adventurers for her cause.

As for Duke Felix Aaron Thenardier, he’s gonna settle his score with Count Tigrevurmud Vorn. I’m sure that he’s pissed of having his bastard son getting killed by a marksman.

But seriously, his son almost raped Titta if it wasn’t for Tigre and Eleonora saving her purity, and I have to say that Zion deserved to die in a horrible manner!

With that said, Tigrevurmud Vorn made a good shot into Thenadier’s forehead. Even though the arrow didn’t pass through Felix’s skull, it’s fatal enough to bring that warmongering duke down!

Well, that ended quickly without any emotional build-up. Even though one bad duke escaped the carnage, why do it have to end this final battle anti-climatically, Satelight?

But that’s about it for Madan no Ou to Vanadis as Tigre and his Silver Meteor Army claim victory over Thenadier and his tyranny. Oh, and Princess Regin was recognized by her people as the heir to the throne.

On the other hand, Tigre sitting beside the princess felt so uncomfortable for him…

As for Eleonora and Ludmilla, they’re getting jealous that they couldn’t sit beside in front of Tigre. Sorry ladies, but that seat is reserved to Princes Regin and Tigre’s maid Titta. Oh, and I forgot to mention that Tigre beat Duke Thenadier with just his power alone, so I feel sorry for you two being side-lined on this last episode.

By the way, the last war maiden didn’t show up in the end, let alone a speaking cameo appearance. Then again, that last war maiden will appear on the second season instead, which would not happen in the future as Kadokawa told Satelight to rush this adaptation just for gaining interest on the original light novels.

Despite being told to rush the adaptation, Satelight should have made more effort on Madan no Ou to Vanadis as the presentation is so average that it leaves the impression very lacking. C’mon, they could just made this series into a 24-episode anime series for goodness sake!

Oh, and one last thing before I finish this post. Here’s King Faron of Brune making his only appearance on this final episode. I’m sure that he’s happy on seeing his daughter Regin back as well as recognizing Tigre as a hero before passing away.

With that said, it’s finally over for this anime series!
