Synopsis

Prince Alexander, son of King Philip, and heir to the Macedonian empire, must fend off political saboteurs, assassins, and the jealousy of his own father to ascend to the position of king. Once there, he begins his quest to conquer all nations and become known as the Great King, though an ancient prophecy foretells that he will be the destroyer of the world and forever remembered as the Devil King.

Every once in a while, an anime tries to break the mold with their approach and art style. Sometimes, this works out swimmingly, and you get a great, fresh anime like Kaiba. Other times, an anime tries to break the mold but comes out worse for it. Reign is not only a complete dud but something that manages to fail on almost every single level of basic entertainment.

The first thing people can't help but notice is the show's art style. The art is not very Japanese at all, and somewhat reminiscent of Aeon Flux. I might've been able to tolerate it, had they used it read more

This is a steampunk version of the life of Alexander the Great. Being Greek myself, I really need to mention how it feels like having your culture’s historical figures turning into amusement.

ART SECTION: 7/10 [Macedonians in tight bikinis!]
Analysis: General Artwork 2/2, Character Figures 1/2, Backgrounds 2/2, Animation 1/2, Visual Effects 1/2

- Very unusual artwork. Makes it feel almost like it’s not an anime. The faces, the body figures and the machinery are very distinctive and just for that, they deserve a good notice. I simply get tired of watching series with identical looks. In this case, the world is a grim, dark-colored, steampunk version of read more

Overview:

Today, I am reviewing the worst anime ever to make it stateside on to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim! Yes, it is worse than Super Milk Chan. Don't even ask. Someone...Someone out there actually thought that this steaming pile of goat shit would be a success. Adult Swim passed on airing shows like Spice and Wolf, Mushishi, Baccano, and Higurashi. What did we get? Fucking Alexander Senki! Although it was realeased in the US under the laughably cheesy title: Reign the Conquerer.

Plot and characters:

This show takes the epic battles of ancient Greece and tries to recreate them into a gritty action comic with very little focus read more

Just came across _Reign: The Conqueror_ in a list of bad anime - didn't recognize it until suddenly the awful memories flooded in. The fundamental problem with _Reign_ was that it was bad enough to be bad, but the makers didn't push it up the 2 or 3 notches that would have made it interesting enough to compensate (think something like _Gurren Lagann_: if it wimped out partway through, it'd be awful, but because it pushed through to the extremes, it winds up being great). That leaves _Reign_ as just mind-breakingly awful.

Recommendations

In both animes the protagonists begin to be princes who want arrevatarle his kingdom, and they face even his father.
The two go through adventures that include battles. Arslan seeks recovery of the Kingdom of Pars, while Alexander Senki seek to broaden the Macedonian empire.
they both have a fantasy approach to history, with a futuristic and oriental taste
Both are historical animes about great kings/military commanders--Cao Cao for Souten Kouro and Alexander The Great for Reign.
Two brutal period dramas, with supernatural themes. Both stories follow charismatic male leads, Griffith and Alexander, whom command armies during times of war and upheaval within the monarchy. Both explore issues such as betrayal and religious conflict. Two incisive, engaging sagas.

Opening Theme

"Anata no Kiss wo Oshiemasho ~You Were Mine~" by Yuki Koyanagi [Japanese Version]
"Worthy of Your Soul" by DJ Milky and b-nCHANt-d featuring Rachel Pollack [U.S.. Version]
