The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Episode 6 Review- This Won’t Go Well For Anyone
This show doesn’t look like it plans on taking a break day anytime soon. Not even an episode ago was Wein planning to implicate an entire nation for revolting against an empire and all that because his friend asked him to. Now that that is dealt with, he again finds himself in the middle of a conflict between two nations, and the situation isn’t as simple as the last time. This time around, God himself might have a say in what is going to happen in the show.
To be blunt, this was perhaps the weakest episode of the show so far. While that would be a bad thing for an inconsistent show such as Platinum End, that statement doesn’t hold as much power for a show as consistently fantastic as Genius Prince. This may well have been the weakest outing so far, but it was still a great episode in a series that has yet to have a bad one in its short lifetime. Genius Prince Episode 6 was a setup episode, so it was already operating at a disadvantage.
A setup episode is only as good as the future possibilities and promises it sets up, and by that metric, this was a fantastic outing. Not only did it establish the conflict between the two kingdoms, but it was also successful in introducing several new characters and giving meaningful roles to a few old ones. This was a surprisingly busy episode, filled to the brim with meaningful exposition and character moments that seemed important in the long run.
The world of this show feels alive and bustling now, owing to the multiple kingdoms making their presence felt in each episode, alongside their differing customs and policies. The show takes great care in its diplomacy to make every interaction between kingdoms and royals sound as realistic and cordial as possible, something that a lesser show might not pay attention to consistently. The animation also looks great, especially when the scenery is concerned.
The relationship that Wein and Ninym share remains the most important part of every episode, and it is always a delight to see the duo interact. They are both extremely well designed and well-written characters, and it makes sense that the writers have chosen to make them the focal point for the series. The Genius Prince’s Guide Episode 6 was a slightly complicated and crammed info dump that could have been better if it was spread across multiple episodes, but it was still a good episode nonetheless.
The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt Episode 6 was a slightly messy and convoluted outing that was still entertaining and told a good story. Just a small missed step for a generally fantastic series.
