Anime: La Storia Della Arcana Famiglia – Episode 1 Summary + Review

“I’m gonna be a Mama?!”

(Assassin cheek-pinching attack!)

Studio: J.C.Staff

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama, Romance, Reverse-Harem, Shoujo, Age: All ages

Released: July 1 2012 – onwards

Arcana Familia is about a group of vigilantes that defend their picturesque island from any hooligans that threatens it’s peace.

(Nova stares down his opponents)

This episode starts off with a grapple in the street and the introduction of loads of main characters.

(Liberta is a fool?)

 The premise is that, apart from having great athletic abilities, the characters also have super-powers that they received from making pacts with Tarot cards.

(Pache loves his food!)

(Debito, Luca, Felicita, and Pache)

Felicita made a pact with The Lovers, and can read minds, etc. They went over quite a lot and I only managed to grab a basic understanding.

(Papa and the current Mama)

The second half of the episode is at Felicita’s father’s birthday celebration. He announces a tournament for the entire Arcana family. The last one left will marry Felicita, which Felicita isn’t happy with.

(Nova, Felicitia and Liberta having a midnight discussion)

Nova and Liberta reassure her that if they win, they will let her choose her own future.

Overall, the series is interesting, but is doesn’t have the  most amazing animation or plot.

Rated – 2/5  A good start and I might follow this for a while.

See the next episode!
