The Arcana Famiglia was an organization that kept peace on the trading island of Regalo. Arcana had mystical powers they were derived from tarot cards. the current leader was Mondo, who wished to choose a successor through a tournament. as an incentive, the winner will marry Felicita, his daughter. Liberta and Nova were keen on protecting Felicita's freedom. together the trio defended each other. Felicita had an ability to read minds, she discovered more about Liberta's violent past and Nova's troubled family history.
despite the promising plot, La storia della Arcana Famiglia (2012) came short. even though the first episode shown true potential, the remaining episodes tend to lack the enthusiasm. the hidden powers however, continued to be interesting to watch until the very end. the love story between Felicita, Liberta and Nova never did advance to the next level. most episodes showed only the rivalry between Liberta and Nova, yet nothing towards the romance with Felicita. instead of building these 3 characters for us, the series focused more on introducing their backgrounds and abilities. thus in the end, i was still unable to feel connected to any of the characters.
