    With King Kou\'s secret revealed, he is enraged and tries to finish his job. But Kourin appears with shi-tsudou. King Kou charges at Youko with his sword, but Kourin absorbs the blow, and gets taken away by her shirei for them to feast. With that issue over, they still need to retrieve the Kingdom of Kei from the false queen. Though Youko is still undecided whether or not she is worthy for the throne. Rakushun does his best to make her feel comfortable. The next morning, King En and Youko lead a charge against Kei. Youko infiltrates all the way to the chamber that\'s imprisoning Keiki. The next couple months, the fake queen is defeated, and Youko captures the throne she\'s going to be set on. After the Kei conspiracy, Keiki finally sends Sugimoto back home. There, she overhears conversations revolving around a boy who disappeared for a year, and reappeared a year later. Sugimoto wants to know what\'s up.



    I actually didn\'t like how this Magnificat arc ended. The Twelve Kingdoms isn\'t an action or shounen, but they could have at least a couple episodes chronicling Youko\'s take over of Kei rather than zooming through the whole thing. Youko mourns the deaths of all those who had fight by her side. If there were an episode where we had the chance to meet these people, that moment would have been something. Instead it\'s almost nothing since no emotions were built up. It\'s great how Sugimoto has finally changed, and will finally going back to Japan with that new personality of hers. Though overall, up until now, The Twelve Kingdoms did a good job of presenting every episode at a stable and steady pace without either rushing or dragging. But this is sort of rushed. Other than that, it was a good episode.moreless
