The plot of Madan no Ou to Vanadis starts to develop very quickly with the first seconds of the premiere episode. One of the few survivors of the epic battle, a young warrior named Tigre, decides to shoot an enemy princess – busty lady who kills all his comrades – with his bow:
But the mysterious beauty is much harder to shoot that she looks. Our redheaded protagonist was captured after having spent all his arrows. But his imprisonment turned out to be not as bad as it could be.
Yes, the boy was awakened by a sword in his mouth, but then… After seeing his skills Ellen (the very same busty enemy princess) decided to spare his life and even invited him to join her army.
So, during the day Tigre ate and drank, walked around the castle and even managed to catch his temporary mistress in the “shower”.
The show looks like your standard fantasy harem at first with a brutal protagonist and a gorgeous beauty which he needs to conquer (in all senses), but then it turns out that Madan no Ou to Vanadis has a few aces up its sleeve (the awakening of the hero at the beginning of the episode was definitely one of them). Of course, it’s still the traditional harem, with tsundere and loli included, but look how beautiful it’s done! The first episode is the creators’ undeniable success, so let’s see what awaits us next week.
