Episode 23: Paradrop
It’s the beginning of the end for Zolzal as the SDF decide enough is enough and not only massacre his forces attacking the Jade Palace, but also release the political prisoners, with the exception of one. Someone who remains Zolzal’s trump card as his reign becomes more of an embarrassment than triumph.
Episode Summary (with Commentary)
Tyuule’s dreams of Zolzal’s end may come true. For as she gives him ill-advice on how to handle the SDF as they storm through the west gate to rescue their people, and even free political prisoners, he is at a lost. To the point where it is only a matter of time when her advice gets him killed. All the while, those former political prisoners find themselves with a new, slightly damaged, empire to rule with SDF influence.
Which, as of now, isn’t a problem for the SDF still has good relations with the aristocrats and the people. For as this blitz operation was going on, they escorted people away from the area and it seems no casualty wasn’t a soldier. But while the SDF made great and large gains, unfortunately Princess Pina remains in shackles. Giving Zolzal his last means to slow down the SDF unless they want their champion to be executed. Which, considering their brother is mounting his own army to overthrow Zolzal, would be one of the top 3 stupidest moves he can do.
