“I know what a king is. But even so, it still doesn’t change who I am. I’m still me. And to me, everyone is equal.”
While he’s on an errand, Arthur hears that the Choosing Ceremony is to take place and he goes to see who the new king will be. All of his excitement drops to dread when he, in a try to save his cousin, by accident draws the holy sword Excalibur out of the anvil.
In shock and disbelief, he’s brought into the castle, his relatively safe life turning to a life of hard decisions, vicious nobles and assassination attempts left and right. Will Arthur crumble before his life as king truly begins, or get killed before it happens?
SPOILER WARNING! If you haven’t listened to episodes 1-3, this review will spoil things for you, even in the thought section where I try to avoid them. I suggest reading the previous Madou Soshi reviewfirst.

Important note! All names, including the title, are in Japanese! For those who have read the novel or comic, or watched the animated or live action series, I’ve put a list of names after the summaries to minimise confusion. Madou Soshi is the Japanese reading title of Mo Dao Zu Shi, and not me bullshitting some random title because I can’t read Chinese much anymore. Also! Usually I write Given name Family name on characters. This is reversed this time because it just sound better. I drop family names unless I need to use them after writing it once though.
During the first year, peace remained…
During the second year as well, peace remained…
And during the thirteenth year as well, peace still remained…
Gi Musen (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) wakes up one day, several years after his death. He realises he was called for a reason, the person sacrificing themselves for something, but they missed a part in the summoning and he’s just offered the body.

“They’re not like psychopaths or anything, are they?”
“No, they’re not.” Sawyer’s face blushed bright red. If Luke wasn’t mistaken, he looked embarrassed. “They can be worse than that.”
Luke’s eyebrows shot up his forehead. “What could be worse than psychopaths?”
Luke’s crush Sawyer asks him out after the final exams are over. Which was for the better, because Luke couldn’t get the courage to do so himself. And over the first few months of them being boyfriends, Luke truly falls in love with his boyfriend. But there’s always something gnawing in the back of Luke’s mind and the meeting with Sawyer’s parents might just be what makes it clear what it is.
