Fam was one of the Sky Pirates, a group of people who sold the ships they captured for a living. one day, Fam and her friend Giselle came across a battle between the Turan Kingdom and the Ades Federation. they rescued Princess Millia from the Turan Kingdom and gave her a place to stay with the Sky Pirates. losing her family and country, Millia was determine to regain her kingdom with the help from Fam and Giselle.
the storyline was somewhat complicated at first, but soon captured our interest after the battle between Turan and the Federation, where it followed the lives of Fam and Giselle while introducing Princess Millia. a matured plot for some 15-year-old girls. Fam easily outshone the rest of the character for her tomboyish chracter, where Giselle, being a complete opposite, was soft and analytic. as a whole, the story was slightly too packed with information to be straightforward and entertaining at the same time. we were able to understand part of it while ignoring the rest just to be on the right path.
