Rin (Konomi Suzuki), an energetic girl who loves to eat, lives in a verdant frontier village. Deep within the royal palace in the bustling capital city, the songstress Finis (Yukari Tamura) spends her days in solitude. Both share a special power no other person has. A miraculous power that can heal wounds, create water and stir the wind -- the power of song. Guided by destiny, the two young women each face an arduous journey with the power of song. The shadow of war looms over the kingdom, tainting even the miraculous songs with the blood of innocents. Loved ones meet their deaths as silent screams echo through a stone prison. As two destinies intersect, will the final song be one of despair, hope or...?

Thoughts on episode 1:
Hmm, I think the first episode is okay. We got a fantasy setting and I think that world has some potential for world building.
We meet a good amount of the main characters already and they seem pretty normal. Still, it looks like tragedy strikes for one of the main girls in this episode and she feels the reality of it. There's music and songs already which plays an important role in this series. (so it has more purpose than just being part of the show)
Not too bothered by the CG stuff but the animation quality feels so-so.

currently watching this, reminded me of the RPG's I used to play back in high school : Lunar Series and Rhapsody.
I find the story actually good, never expected the twist as the story progress.
It's hard to grasp at first, trying to understand the overlapping timeline but I think its interesting that way.
