Zero no Tsukaima F episode 12

Here it is; the final episode, the end of Zero no Tsukaima. It hasn’t sunk in yet, but I have no regrets. I have been following the series for years and enjoyed every episode, every season and every OVA. I wish there was a slightly better ending though, seeing as I already knew that this would happen.

The episode was a little bit rushed. We still had an evil dragon to finish off, a scene where Saito returns to their world and a ‘happy’ scene at the end. Now I’m not going to beat around the bush, we all knew that Saito was going to return to their world, but I just wished that he did so sooner, so that they would have more time for a romantic scene, or perhaps even an x-amount of years from now scene.

Anyway, everyone, including those mercenaries, set up a barrier to fend of the dragons’ attacks for a short while, until the fleets arrive and such. Well, the fleets did arrive, which is fine, but they couldn’t do much against that dragon with their firepower alone. They barely did some damage, let alone defeat it.

That was when, insert fake surprise face here, Saito shows up in a jet fighter to save the day. The only thing that caught me by surprise was the fact that Delfringer, my favourite character in the show, turned out to be alive inside Saito’s rune. That part I enjoyed, definitely. However, Saito kept firing away his missiles at that thing with all he had, but it just wouldn’t go down. Sure, he damaged it’s barrier pretty badly, but it wasn’t enough to kill it, when suddenly he invites Louise into the cockpit, only to tell her to use her explosion. Saito decided to use the last bit of Liveslatille’s power in order to amplify Louise’s attack, making sure that the evil dragon goes down for good.

It was a pretty epic battle and I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy it, but I feel that they dragged it on a bit too long towards the end. I knew that Saito and Louise were going to make up, kiss and whatnot, but I never imagined that they would get married. Poor Saito, he was a dog in theory, but now…

It’s sad to say when it’s about a show you love, but it’s the end of the line for Zero no Tsukaima. It is quite the accomplishment, to end with four successful seasons. I’m pretty sure that we can expect an OVA or something like that in the future, but this is definitely the end. The only thing that I regret not seeing is something happening between Saito and Tiffania, but that’s alright.

Zero no Tsukaima F episode 12 screencaps

    So is this the end of the story or is there still a continuation for the actual Zero No Tsukaima Novel?.
    I’m reading some of it in the Baka Tsuki website, they translate Japanese Novels to English, too bad dow cause the Zero No Tsukaima section still hasn’t been fully translated yet, anyways is there any possibility of a Harem Ending? LOL!

    I agree the story was rushed, also some unresolved issues such as the ring of anderville being returned to the waterspirit from season 2,and a few eps looking at saitos family, thier reactions to louise, louises reactions to earth, etc etc etc. wouldnt have gone astray. but a great series,really enjoyable and sad to see the end so rushed!!lets hope for a couple of OVA’s to fill the gaps!!!

  3. i think that there will be an ova or too in the future as well, but I doubt that they will fill these holes.

    there are so many things holes in the story that they couldn’t possibly do it all with just one or two ovas.

  6. I loved this series, and the ending was so awesome(it was nice to see a harem anime that didn’t have such an indecisive ending like “Oh I’m gonna leave things as they are, use your imagination to decide who I end up with haha cliffhanger king right here man”) I hate that so much lol all in all this anime was epic.
