    This is the coolest episode in this serie! Youko and Keiki are so cool! Poor Koushou, he looked so dumbfound when he found out that she is the queen. Well, you can say that after a long proloque for this Arc, everything turns out well. Youko became a queen she supposed to be in stead of being a puppet for the miniters. Shoukei and Suzu grew up and let go of their anger and envy over " The Empress of Kei". Bad guys were captured, good guys were back to the court acting as close Youko's court officers. Youko finally found minister whom she could trust in order to lead the country to the new era.moreless
  • What an astonishing finish to a fantastic arc.

    Youko decides to finally make a move as a Queen in order to completely obliterate the true rebellion that resides within the court itself. Queen Kei confronted the generals of the royal army, who were ordered to capture Gahou and bring him to Kinpa palace. Seikyou and Shoukou were also put under trial. Youko continues to apologize to the rebels she fought with for being incompetent, and grants the leaders a wish. Later, they visited Asano's death bed, mourning over there loss. They then discussed what they will do next. Youko invited them to be officials within her court. They think about it. She also invites Enho, and he immediately accepts the position. After a long absence within her court, she returns with a stronger presence than when she first arrived. She made a ton of adjustments to the court itself, switching positions around, and made her first ordinance; to not make bowing mandatory no matter the status.



    I was actually all pumped up for a grand battle, but it wouldn't have worked out with the story. At first I thought that this arc might have ended a little disappointly like the previous two, but it ends strongly. It was sad seeing Asano dead like that, dying when it wasn't unncessary. The conversation between the three main characters, Suzu, Shoukei, and Youko, was played out great. Just about every minute of this episode was not put to waste. In fact, two more minutes were added in the end as well! I really liked the philosophical message when Youko made her first ordinance regarding bowing. She spoke with such strength and energy. What made this episode feel even more special was how it ended. I'm not a big fan of endings that literally end. I always love the ones that are open to speculation for the future of its cast, though it also makes way for horrible fanfiction.moreless
