Following Saito's heroic actions in the War with Albion in season two, Saito & Louise return to Tristain, only to have the runes which bind Saito & Louise disappear. Saito & Louise struggle with a relationship no longer defined as Master & Familiar, as they search for an Elf who has the power to restore the dead to life, and may hold the key to understanding Saito's loss of the Gandalfr's power.

[TV series, 2008, 12+1 episodes, 24 min; the OVA extra episode "Seductive Beach" (to be inserted as episode 6.5) is a fan-service filler where all the girls are tricked into wearing swimsuits believing they perform a religious ceremony]

The "Japanese version" of the series name contains both a Japanese and an English version of the name: "三美姫 の 輪舞" ("san-biki no rinbu") means "three beautiful women's round dance" whereas "プリンセッセの ロンド" (the kana sound pattern for "purinsesse no rondo") omitted the plural element and the number "three".

[Score: 70% = Watch+, weakest of the three seasons]

The third season adds two more unnecessary big boobs girls instead of character development, and the Colbert issue severely damaged the story's credibility. It's as if nothing of importance is actually happening in these 12+1 episodes (the OVA is a fan-service filler, a beach episode with swimsuit parade and a tentacle monster). This was a huge disappointment for me.

Unevaluated Forbin [series:1837#1573]
Analysis : 10 episodes watched.

So far it is better than season 2 but not as good as season 1. Siesta is back to being a normal girl who just wants to marry Saito. (In the last season she became a real witch)

Definitely a better product, still not as good as the 1st season, but while the jokes are STILL about breasts and Saito, this time, (except for one case) he is COMPLETELY innocent but Louise is ready to assume the worst of him. She is like a Tsundere with TSUNDERe (lower case e). She is mostly pissed off but very rarely has a dere side. Of course Saito STILL attracts a gaggle of women some innocent, some not so.

I STILL Don't believe the situation with Colbert Sensei, it was lame.
