Seems par the course for this show. It's like the writers feel a surprise would be rude.

It appears to me that the people were suffering under Karl's father, and in a monarchy they had no recourse except...

The idea of a benevolent lord is similar to the idea of a benevolent slave master. No matter how kind and accommodating you are, the power relationship itself is fundamentally corrupt.

That's why...

I don't see how wanting monarchs to be overthrown is reactionary. It's the opposite in fact. What you typically get in high fantasy is the idea that monarchs are these beautiful, kindly, benevolent...

Flashbacks: The Anime.

Anyway, not really feeling the drama here, mainly because I'm finding the characters unrelatable. As for Karl, well, sorry dude but your parents were monarchs and to me...

That's more or less the same basis on which the third years assert their power. Not to say that Charles' thoughts on hierarchy are reasonable, every moral position in this series seems to be reduced...

Morrison is Arnett's limiter, the scrawny blond kid. Ticy's is different, don't know his name though and honestly the chance of any of them becoming relevant suddenly is low.

Not only Chiffon, but without Elizabeth and Andre (we can infer that they won't be back in action any time soon with his injuries) we will be left with an extremely weak cast.

At first I thought I was watching troll subs. So they did that to make her speech pattern seem cruder and more manly?

Looks like it. I don't remember anything in the novel about Alba being there, but whenever Type-Moon does an anime, they tend to add a little bit to canon so who knows.

There is more exposition on the main plot in spin-offs than there is in the main series.

Can't explain that.
