Episode 2 of The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and Genius Young Lady has aired and it was unexpectedly wholesome from start to finish. I say unexpectedly because the first one concluded rather dramatically. We last left off with Anisphia saving Euphyllia from the crowd after the latter was embarrassed by her former fiancé. Due to Algard’s actions, Euphyllia’s image to the public is now ruined.
To solve this mess, Anisphia had a brilliant solution in mind to restore the genius lady’s reputation – make Euphyllia her assistant in magicology. Magicology is a unique magical theory developed by Anisphia based on memories from her past life. Basically, she’s using the magic in this world that she was reincarnated in to invent useful technology from her previous world. And believe it or not, the stuff she creates can be quite a handful as seen in the episode where her father used the kettle she made to make hot tea instantly. As such, being her assistant will not just make Euphyllia learn the ways of magicology but she can be the face of it by showcasing to the world this authentic technology that can reshape the lives of everyone. If she succeeds, Euphyllia’s image and reputation will drastically shift to good terms with the people. Not a bad plan coming from the frisky reincarnated princess.
But before all of this was decided, first they had to consult their fathers. Coincidentally, both their fathers were together in the king’s office and they both seem to be good friends. The king, Anisphia’s father, can be difficult because he is tired of her shenanigans. I mean, if you’re wreaking havoc all day in the kingdom you’re supposed to rule in the future, you surely don’t want to discuss something absurd with your father.
Anisphia still goes through with it and it was hilarious to see her approach her father at first as she carried the Euphyllia on her back. It’s actually funny how both fathers also share the same energy with their daughters. King Orphans is very loud and doesn’t hesitate to scold his daughter, which is a given due to Anisphia’s chaotic personality. On the other hand, Grantz Magenta, Euphyllia’s father, is calmer when talking to his own daughter. Even though Grantz has this gentler voice, Euphyllia at times feels scared whenever he opens his mouth or lifts his hand, implying that she must’ve always been disciplined violently by her father. Of course, this is all just speculation but in the end, her father seemed reformed and even took a bow before her daughter to apologize for his shortcomings.
It was also revealed in the episode that Anisphia never wanted to marry a man. According to her, if she were to fall in love with someone, it would have to be a woman, because she doesn’t want to bear any children. No matter what excuse she has though, it’s clear that Anisphia doesn’t want a man in her life. She may have shown signs of affection for Euphyllia, but it was still murky, until that scene at the end of the pisode which set the final nail in the coffin.
After everything was settled, the two began living together under the supervision of Ilia. Anisphia is excited to live together with Euphyllia, but Euphyllia is still bothered because all of these are taking place so fast. Getting abandoned by your fiancéand now living with his sister to research a contentious theory all happening in one night must be exhausting. Clearly, she still has a lot to process. Anisphia once again saved the day by showing how much of an empath she is and proving that her love for Euphyllia isn’t just for the talents she possesses but for who she really is. She is truly understanding of the genius lady’s feelings. The way she just smoothly cheers up Euphyllia, expressing how brilliant and lovely the genius young lady is, all while acknowledging her hard work, is truly admirable.
Anisphia may be perceived as this weirdo who is trying to give up all privileges in life and as someone who does not care about anyone but herself. However, deep down, she’s an understanding and thoughtful person who wants to serve her people, worthy of a princess just like this show was worthy to be crowned best anime of the week.
