Tales of Xillia ~Side;Milla~
Summary and Preview
Based on the PS3 game, "Tales of Xillia".
In the world of Liese Maxia, humans and monsters co-exist with the spirits, who grant their power to humans in exchange for protection. The most basic form of this is the ability to channel mana as Spirit Power, which can be used to power everything from street lamps to magical spells. Two countries vie for supremacy of Liese Maxia: La Schugall, an empire whose extensive use of Spirit Power has granted it incredible prosperity; and A Jule, a developing country whose power comes from the control of monsters.
Jude Mathis is a bright young medical student studying in the capital of La Schugall. When a large number of patients are suddenly admitted to his hospital, he investigates the cause and encounters a mysterious woman called Milla Maxwell. Milla claims to be "Maxwell", the legendary king of the spirits, and has come to investigate a recent wave of spirit deaths within La Schugall. Together, she and Jude discover a conspiracy reaching all the way to the emperor of La Schugall, and are soon forced to flee from the military.
