    Anime's back! With...a recap episode, of course.

    Pretty predictable and completely disregards all the actions of the reporter that come off like a total prick. But hey, new OP and ED are both good!

    Merlin was a brilliant girl hundreds of years ago who somehow swindled gifts from both the Demon King and Divine Goddess, and got her city destroyed as retribution.

    I've read the first three, but the back-to-back brutal endings of the 2nd and 3rd books put me off them for a bit. They're dense enough that it's been tough to get into the fourth much.
