This is the story of how you will beat me one day
The main role is played by Yuu, the daughter of a deceased hero. He once defeated a dragon by cutting off its horn and breaking its power. This put an end to the Dragon King’s reign, but he lived on and even made friends with the hero. When the hero was injured and dying, he asked the dragon to take care of his daughter.
The dragon saw new meaning in this task. Yuu grew up with the dragon and soon wanted to become a heroine like her father himself. The dragon tells her the hero stories every night. However, the dragon did not tell her that he was ever the evil that overcame her father. “This is the story of how one day you will beat me…”
Anyone who knows The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince will easily see that Sayaka Oda is behind this title. Once again, Oda’s work captivates with its beautiful graphic style. It is also worth turning up the volume a bit, because then you hear Akiko Shikata. The singer is known for, among other things, Ar Tonelico.
