Episode 1 (Beginning of the War) and 2 (Scars and Gunfire)

Izetta: The Last Witch Episodes 1 And 2: A Nazi By Any Other Name…

Izetta: The Last Witch has begun its run on Crunchyroll. In the first two episodes (Beginning of the War and Scars and Gunfire), we met Ortfiné (Finé) Fredericka von Eylstadt, princess of Eylstadt, as she journeyed to a neutral country. She’s seeking allies to help defend her people against Germanian invasion. We also meet some of the Germanians who are trying to stop her, and we discover who was imprisoned in the large metal tube that Finé discovered on the train. Furthermore, we witness Izetta as she awakens and frees Finé from the Germanians; we see what a White Witch can do against Germanian air power; and we see what Izetta is willing to do to protect princess Finé. Which is a lot.
