The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady is an isekai yuri (girls’ love) story about two young girls from a certain kingdom. One of them is reincarnated as a princess, who loved magic more than anyone else but whom magic did not love in return, and the other is a noble lady, born with everything but having nothing.
This winter’s 2023 anime premiered on January 4, 2023. It was written by Wataru Watari and directed by Shingo Tamaki from the Diomedea Studio. This anime is an adaptation of the manga, which was published by ASCII Media Works in July 2020 and consists of four volumes as of August 2022.
The main character is Anisphia Wynn Palettia (Anis), who is a reincarnated princess in the kingdom of Palettia, where using magical powers is a common thing. She remembers her past life when she was a child as a normal being, but she was always fascinated of flying; now she wanted to learn to fly even if she lacked magic through magical items.
The other main character Euphyllia Magenta (Euphie) is a born royal in this kingdom, gifted with magic, and, being a noble, she was pre-destined to marry prince Algard Von Palettia (Anis’s brother), as decided by his father. But on their graduation day, Algard broke off, claiming that she allegedly bullied a commoner (his love interest) and was simply using him to be the queen.
But then, during their ceremony, Anis crashed landed with her flying broomstick, which she was learning, and intervened Algard and carried Euphie on her broom. When she was broken and defeated, Anis offered her a hand, and the two girls’ story began. Anis also wanted to learn magic from her because she was a genius at it.
The character of Algard is portrayed as an antagonist because he is constantly envious of her sister Anis, who is always one step ahead of him and steals his spotlight. Because of Anis’ rebellious character, their family suffers embarrassment.
The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady Episode 4 Recap: Spoilers
So far, the story has been a slow progression, with each character taking their time to develop, and in this episode, we see Euphie developing affection for Anis, like when she woke up from a good nap in Euphie’s lap. Ilia (her maid) arrives and compares her to a stray dog since she is unconcerned about her personal grooming.
Anis doesn’t like to be treated as royalty, and that’s why Ilia can tease her like a normal person without being disrespectful. Ilia looks after her, and their relationship is more like that of sisters than a servant-master relationship.
Later, Euphie admitted to being envious of her since she is a free bird who does whatever she wants, whereas Euphie can never be like her. She was very frank about her feelings for Anis. She couldn’t find a purpose for her future and asked her what she could do for her now that she was with her and had the freedom that she never had before. Anis, however, urges her to take the time she requires.
Following there came a brief conversation between Ilia and Euphie in which Ilia explains how Anis was trained by the Royal Knights but most of her skills were honed in battle. Later, Euphie followed Ilia since she was having difficulty doing things outside of her assigned role.
Euphie discovers that Anis is a gold-rank adventurer from the adventurers’ guild, and she needs to leave immediately since a stampede is approaching. She does this to collect resources from the monsters and fund herself, but it’s risky, and Euphie is worried about her and attempts to stop her.

So his father, Orfans II Palettia, declared Algard, the new king, but his father was also aware that Anis had abdicated her throne and acted foolishly for the sake of her brother. When they were younger, the siblings were always close, but as Anis discovered the path of Magicology, Algard began to despise his sister.
She wanted to make it apparent that she was not fit to sit on the throne. However, rumors began to circulate that Algard lacks the ability to shine, and Anis may be the only one to fill that position. Nonetheless, Orfans proclaimed his son the king. So now we must wait and watch to see what happens to Algard and whether he is truly worthy of the title.
Furthermore, the king’s daughter did something silly yet again, taking Euphie with her to the Black Forest because she wanted to go with her and support her in some way. So we’ll have to wait till the next episode to see how Euphie battles with her.
