Zero no Tsukaima seems to have shed its oppai anime aspirations, for the moment at least, in order to deliver a finale which many fans have been surprised to note is actually rather final.
However, it does not appear many have any serious doubts that there will be a fourth season, and the success and marketability of the series would certainly appear to bear this out.
Many fans also consider this the roughest season so far, though this does not seem to dissuade many from giving it their full attention. It looks as if few can resist high production values and the allure of tsundere queen Rie Kugimiya, whatever their misgivings…
All that remains to ponder is when, or perhaps even if, the next season will air, and whether it will exhibit an increase in quality?
