In Quantity 4 of Unnamed Reminiscence, we entered into a brand new timeline with characters we knew and cherished, however whose lives had been subtly modified after the occasions of Quantity 3. Nonetheless, as a lot as issues could have modified, the bond between King Oscar and Tinasha is the one ever-lasting aspect and their love brings them collectively, it doesn’t matter what their circumstances dictate.
Once we reunite with the solid in Quantity 5, we discover Tinasha speeding to interrupt the curse on Oscar and making ready for her coronation because the chief of Tuldarr. Simply as within the first timeline, Tinasha manages to interrupt Oscar’s curse which is nice information for all concerned however means she now not has a purpose to stay round within the Kingdom of Farsas. Oscar is unhappy to see her go, however as two leaders of completely completely different (and highly effective) nations, he acknowledges that politically he can’t pursue her romantically.
Then the coronation is held and Tinasha shocks everybody when she broadcasts that she’s solely going to take the throne for a brief interval, lengthy sufficient to determine a working authorities to rule alongside the royal lineage. With this out of the way in which, it leaves her free to do no matter she desires, and Oscar wastes no time in asking for her hand in marriage, one thing she readily accepts.
Past Oscar’s proposal, this quantity is essentially spent transferring alongside a subplot, one that when extra threatens to overturn the entire world as we all know it. It’s alluded to that sure characters are conscious of the actual fact the timeline has modified and that this has precipitated cracks to look on the earth; some issues have modified an excessive amount of as no matter bond Oscar and Tinasha have has pulled them again collectively towards all odds. Mentioned characters wish to make the most of this and start to place a plan in movement to get their fingers on the small orbs sealed away in Tuldarr and Farsas’ treasure vaults. These are the identical orbs that despatched Oscar again in time on the finish of Quantity 3, thereby altering the longer term for Quantity 4 onwards.
The opposite main occasion is that we lastly meet the witch who cursed Oscar, one thing that by no means occurred within the unique timeline. This brings that specific aspect to a satisfying conclusion after we’ve waited so lengthy, which makes me blissful since I’d anticipated to not have this specific encounter till the tip of the collection.
On the entire, the remainder of this ebook is kind of according to the books which have come earlier than.

Within the afterword, the writer Kuji Furumiya says that this ebook is a “transient second of tranquillity” and I suppose contemplating we get to see Oscar and Tinasha blissful, that is sensible. However from a narrative perspective, it’s something however tranquil as issues start to stack up earlier than the conclusion. A number of the troubles our two most important characters discover themselves wrapped in all through the ebook are additionally something however peaceable, significantly when one includes youngsters being kidnapped and killed! It does make me worry for what’s in retailer for our duo within the remaining instalment, however hopefully, we’ll get a contented ending even when our duo are put by way of the wringer to get there…
