La Storia della Arcana Famiglia


The town of Regalo is protected by the organization, Arcana Famiglia, whose powers are drawn from contracts with cards.  The head of the family announces the Arcana Duello to which the victor will succeed him and wins the hand of his daughter, Felicita, for marriage.

 I had very high hopes with the first episode. The premise is action-packed with very cool and dark character designs. Bad boy types in dark suits plus the girl literally kicks ass. My favorite bishies are Debito and Luca. I also love their Italian names and phrases. It's a breath of fresh air from all the reverse harems. Surprisingly, the reverse harem set up is neatly divided into 3 by generations and the trio of Felicita-Nova-Liberta reminds me of Tohru-Kyo-Yuki. I really love the catchy opening song too which for some reason reminds me of old animes.

But man, they stretched out 11 episodes with character background and fillers. It's okay to have random episodes if not for the fact that the characters have cool powers and all the preparation has build up the excitement for major fight show. But I'm not giving up on Arcana. In fact, I'm still praying for some sort of miracle that can save it from it the disappointing finale.
