Fun fact: the game held a poll asking which event the fans most wanted to see become an anime. This won.

I liked the show but what you point out isn't wrong. Initially I was happy to see a fantasy show focusing on one central couple instead of a massive harem, but there wasn't much payoff. Then again the narration did say that the Prince fell for the Queen, not that she reciprocates. I really like Iris's design though.

I don't know anything about the game other than the player character (the guy on the beach) and the main heroine are reincarnations of the Prince and Iris. I processed the show as a whole by comparing it to the Argonaut event from the Danmachi game. That too is a prequel set thousands of years before the main story when the world was completely different and the new characters have obvious connections to the main cast. It reveals details about an important piece of lore that made the world what it is in the present.

We can all agree that the show had a banger of an opening.

Maybe all the budget went into that opening, to be fair.

It's not often you see an anime title consisting entirely of stereotypical anime-title-bingo buzzwords. And from the sound of things, it's quite fitting--looks decent at first glance, but lacking substance.
