Marie en Carlsberg

The charm of this work

Nadia is an unprecedented heroine who stimulates raw emotions to an unpredictable extent from the stereotypical “moe” character view, and in various ways, you can’t take your eyes off her. People who get irritated will be thoroughly irritated, and those who get hooked will be thoroughly hooked. Nadia is the “heroine who cannot be ignored.” In contrast to Nadia’s rawness, the other characters, such as Jean who supports Nadia to the end, and the coolest Nemo and Sanson, are all characters with a refreshing feeling of action principles, and the overall balance is maintained.

It’s a work where all the “This is interesting, isn’t it!” that the creators wanted to do is packed in.
