The Siege of the Capital Arc is the third arc of Chronicles of a Mage, and is one of the arcs that make up the Xemen Saga. It centers around Team Sanjo's arrival at the royal city of Crocus; the subsequent attack on the capital, and the events surrounding it. The attack concludes with the abduction of Princess Victoria Fiorenza and Lana Kaen, which spurs the next coming arc, the Lana and Victoria Rescue Arc.

- The chapter title for Or Does It Explode and the final parts of said chapter were influenced by the poem "A Dream Deferred" by Langston Hughes, a famed American poet best known for his work during the Harlem Renaissance . He is also the author's favorite poet, though the author is not a big fan of poetry in general.
