The Flag Retakes the symbols and colors of the flag of Genoa, which dates back to the 11th century and adds the golden crown which represents the standing royal family. The design was presented by a young girl from the region of Britannia.

Britannia is the most important city in Albion, the Royal Family resides there, along with the head of the church. The city is inhabited mostly by wealthy individuals and nobility, most knights and paladins are also trained here, which makes it the center of power for the church, the military and the monarchy, truly a city only for the elite. it is also the main center of research and development in the entire nation.
OTHER IMPORTANT REGIONS

WW3 AND THE SECOND REINASSANCE The Country of Albion was swiftly founded as an outcome of WW3, Ireland was left devastated after the war and the survivors had to relocate towards Scotland and Wales, the military formed a new social class but it was quickly overthrown by the people who had the ars magi tech in their power, the Heroes of this rebellion then came to be hailed by everyone as saviors and later on, royalty.
THE RESURGENCE Some generations later the royal bloodline still lives on, the resurgence took many by surprise but it was still embraced by everyone since old powerful forms of magic arose and both dragons and corrigans (fairies) came back to the land. The king managed to achieve peace with both races by sharing the land and then took the name of Arthur, as to remember the great king of old. for many years the doors to the country of Albion remained closed just to protect these secrets.
THE GODSENDS Nobody expected yet another unnatural event after the resurgence, yet it came to happen. on that day stardust and crystals fell all over Albion. those who acquired them quickly became part of the nobility. these gifts from the sky were taken as a signal from god to finally open itself to the world.
GOVERNMENT The kingdom of Albion is a Monarchy, the social pyramid is structured like this:
-King: Absolute authority and lone monarch of Albion -Dukes: 3 dukes, one for each race, hold different authority and rule over land appointed by the king -Marquess and Earl: have the highest military rank and protect the country (two for the interior, two for the border)
The People in Albion are engaged in a system that rewards effort. it is a complete meritocracy, most lower class citizens can reach the higher scales of society trough hard work and dedication. both education and healthcare are granted to all the citizens as long as they pay their taxes and there is a lot of specialization in the cities, Dragons and Corrigans hold their own social structures but still live among humans.
-HUMANS most of the population is caucasian, the upper classes all know how to use AM tech and have high military training. the average height is 180cm
-CORRIGANS These type of fairies found in Albion possess extremely high levels of magic power but very low levels of physical strenght, they age until they turn to stone, giving them a lifespan of thousands of years. Size
-DRAGONS dragons excel in both physical and mental prowess, they can use AM tech and also posses innate magic of their own. there arent many but they are all formidable. Albion dragons do not age, so they have an indefinite lifespan.
BASIC TIERS AND EQUIPMENT
When common citizens enroll in the military they start at the rank of recruit. they get enrolled in a military school and after some years they join the ranks.
when nobles enroll they start at the rank of page, most lower nobility has been trained for this purpose since birth and they have advanced military knowledge by the time they join the ranks.
These soldiers wield fire arms and very light armor capable of withstanding low caliber gunfire and lower tier magic., they also comprise the air forces and man the tanks, mechs and submarines of Albion.
HIGH TIERS AND EQUIPMENT
knights are usually the sons of higher nobility and they are the elite combat class in Albion in terms of ground combat and h2h, most of them don powerful armors reinforced by AM tech and ancient Bound circles (runes) made by corrigans (and sustained by them too) these upgrades are translated as higher durability, speed and force fields, since the armor is entirely manufactured by the noble's family all armors have different traits and abilities.
adding to that, knights are equipped with AM high frequency blades, the type of blade is usually a claymore or a Zweihander, knights have some basic ranged weapons but they rarely use them.
knights and upper tiers rarely ever show their face, and are mostly recognized due to their armor.
Paladins are a special Division of Knights, they fight alongside dragons and corrigans, always in groups of 3 (paladin mounts dragon and corrigan rides /flies at shoulder height of the paladdin), and have the very best of both tech and magic available to them, they are often very well known for their combat prowess and some are even regarded as heroes. being members of the round table, paladins are very rare and only directly deployed by the king.
Paladins have two familiars at all times, and they use a bound circle which shifts from leader between the 3 depending on the situation, some of these paladins even posses what people know as godsends, these weapons are granted directly by the king.

So, do you have any plans for Ireland? If you don't and nobody else does, I have an idea for underground colonies of survivors who only recently surfaced, no longer quite human from their need to survive.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
