Unaware that the Sablum Empire’s Gerot has sent an assassin named Selima to Wind Land, Priecia is shooting a promotional film for the Rosenberg Knight Training School. She draws the line when the director and school principal Kizarob puts her in lingerie, despite his noble recruitment goal for their school in the face of the Sablum threat. Priecia leaves after kicking his perverted face in order to get ready for today’s entrance ceremony. Selima meanwhile enters the city to infiltrate the school and decides to take on the name Bridget. She finds that all across the school are banners celebrating Priecia, and everyone is talking about how she’s a genius in both military arts and academics. Priecia herself gets embarrassed when she sees all these and tries her best to destroy them. It is here that she meets a boy wondering what this genius princess is like. Both of them are late for the ceremony, so he drags her with lightning-fast speed to ceremony hall and introduces himself as Hyaweh along the way. By the time the two of them arrive, they find Bridget on-stage after she had gotten mistaken for Priecia because of her braided hair and her inability to pronounce her own name.
Bridget has been asked to demonstrate her abilities in a mock battle against a bunch of small wood-men for the rest of the students, but she’s unable to handle herself against the onslaught. When Karin has to help her, Bridget finally clears up the misunderstanding over her identity, and she also starts to use her assassin skills to fight more effectively. The two of them nevertheless become overwhelmed by the wood-men, and it’s the real Priecia who ends up jumping in and saving them. However, Priecia doesn’t take kindly to someone using her name, so she turns her sword against Bridget. This causes Bridget to start panicking and apologizing, and to Priecia’s surprise, Hyaweh suddenly steps in and holds Priecia’s sword in place with only two fingers to stop her from doing anything. Priecia thinks that she has to kill Hyaweh now too for getting in her way, but Hyaweh grabs both her hands and tells her that she definitely can’t kill him because rapiers are swords for attacking the enemy. Feeling embarrassed and insulted, Priecia breaks free of his grasp and attacks him.
Well this episode was better than the first one, but I’m still having a hard time getting into it and just basically don’t care for it. This episode serves as an introduction to Selima/Bridget, who is an anime original character, as well as showing how Hyaweh and Priecia met, however aside from the fact that Hyaweh is a lot more powerful than he looks (which I said last time but it bears repeating since this episode chronologically occurs before the first episode), there’s not much more to the story that interests me. I doubt I’ll be sticking around to watch any more of this.
