The Familiar Of Zero F: Complete Collection Season 4 (2009/Sentai Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes: A-

It's the final season of Familiar of Zero, Saito has constantly saved and protected the kingdom (and Louise) from danger and trouble. As Louise learns more about her Void powers she soon learns she is not alone. An ancient evil awakens, and they must find the other legendary Void Mages to help save the world.

Saito was an ordinary boy until he was summoned by Louise to be her familiar. Louise, his 'master' is a spoiled noble, more often than not her pride/actions getting her into trouble and needing to be rescued by Saito afterwards. Eventually, Louise realizes how much she cares and needs Saito and falls in love with him, but between saving the world from one disaster to the next, Louis has some tough competition for Saito... including Siesta, Saito's personal maid. Tiffa a well endowed elf. Tabetha, Louise's classmate and also future Queen of Galia. And Queen Henreitta, Louise's childhood friend.

This was one of the better longer continuing anime series. It is mainly comedy romance where the main male protagonist ends up saving the world (and winning the hearts of the girls he saved). Most of the comedy comes from the main female protagonist when sees others girls (specially those who are more well endowed than her) flirting with our hero (and then punishing him for it). As the series comes to a close the girls eventually compete openly for the protagonist's affections.

The playback performance of the set mirrors the previous seasons we covered elsewhere on this site: The 1080p 1.78 X 1 image is great and holds up, especially for its age, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mixes are as good as it can get, especially for the show being much older than most of late. Extras include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.

The final episodes here are...

Louise of the Holy Land - Saito and Louise travel to Romania the holy land.

Priestess in Aquileia - Louise gets kidnapped ...again.
