Synopsis

The ancient kingdom of Parros has been invaded by the armies of Mongaul, and its king and queen have been slain. But the "twin pearls of Parros," the princess Rinda and the prince Remus, escape using a strange device hidden in the palace. Lost in Roodwood, they are rescued from Mongaul soldiers by a strange leopard-headed man, who has no memories except for the words "Aurra" and "Guin," which he believes to be his name.

As a fan of science fiction and fantasy, I'm always on the lookout for enjoyable stories, and this is one of the reasons why I'm such a fan of anime. Imagine my surprise then, when I learned that a series that I've only ever managed to read parts of (and small sections they were too), and that I have tried on numerous occasions to find in English, was read more

Considering 2009 was the first year i really started to notice that fewer shows were getting released year on year, it is truly surprising this project got the go ahead at all. Guin Saga is truly a faithful depiction of classic Fantasy/Adventure story telling, for better and for worst.

"Utawarerumono" is one of the many other works of Japanese fantasy to have been inspired by the "Guin Saga". The similarities are obvious ^^

Both set in a world full of conflict, unlike our own and following the rise and fall of nations. Lots of Medieval / Ancient Chinese Fantasy world themes.

Opening Theme

"Guin no Theme" by Nobuo Uematsu

Ending Theme

"Saga ~ This is my road" by Kanon
