Synopsis

This world has gone through many Dusks, and is slowly nearing its end. Within this world, in the western reaches of the "Land of Dusk," there was a nation that prospered thanks to its use of alchemy.

There, in order to survive the eventual arrival of the "Dusk End," the people devoted their efforts to rediscover and recreate lost alchemic technologies. Rediscovered technology from the past era was gathered in the alchemy research city known as "Central," where research was conducted on how to halt the advance of the twilight.

One of the heroes is a young man who researched alchemy in Central, the other a girl living in a small town on the frontier. This girl's name is Escha. In the process of using her knowledge of ancient alchemy to help others, she was assigned to the Development Department. The young man's name is Logy. Having learned the newest alchemic techniques in Central, he requested a transfer to this understaffed town to make use of his abilities, and meets Escha when he is assigned to the Development Department as well. The two make a promise to use their alchemy together, and bring success to the Development Department.

The thought of video game adaptations in film or anime usually leads one to imagine the more frequently popularized aspects of video games: Stylish violence and sensuality, high-velocity, no-holds-barred plotlines with worlds that need saving, and iconic, stone-faced heroes and heroines. Atelier Escha & Logy, an adaptation of one installment in a series of well-received roleplaying games, is about as far removed from that generalization as possible—its heroes and heroines are not particularly adept, and its focus drifts towards some of the more humble aspects of gaming, such as navigating the environment, gathering resources, communicating with other characters, and gradually honing skills. The idea is read more

I am not familiar with the game series, so I will not be comparing the show to the game.

Story: 7
For the most part, the episodes were, well, episodic. Until the last few episodes, we had an episode to episode storyline, with some stories continuing from one episode to another. Things didn't really pick up until the last few episodes, although those were pretty enjoyable. I would have liked to see a more cohesive, connected plot in all of the episodes.

Art: 7
The animation for the show was nothing spectacular. I noticed in quite a few of the scenes, the characters had what I like to read more

So everyone knows this is based on game series and yes, it's not that easy to understand the whole thing without playing those games.

Yet it doesn't mean that you won't be able to enjoy this anime at all. Even if you're not familiar with games, there's a certain aura to this anime that you can enjoy it as well as others do.

Story 7/10 - isn't anything too complicated, it's rather easy-going, may feel a little slow-paced but that's just the nature of this anime. There's nothing much to talk about story actually, most of the episodes are concentrated on individual characters. They don't go read more

"Don't give up on your dreams"

That pretty much sums up the moral that the anime teaches in a sense. Although not many reviews or others have really focused on the what anime can teach someone.. but personally I think it is rather important to at least touch on it because it is something that many people overlook. Many people underestimate the power of anime.
Anime is one of the few things that can shed's light on issues that people may not be able to understand, teaches and reminds us of morals and also provide entertainment for all kinds of people (but.. as we all read more

How is this similar with SH? Well it's simple, when I first watched EschaLogy's first episode it made me feel I was playing a videogame and that's the same feeling you get when you watch SH. Digging deeper you'll find that these two series also share a similar RPG action/fantasy story that develops in an old village.
They may not always share the familiarity with economics but both these shows take place in a fantasy setting. And from that setting will be mysteries and discoveries to be unraveled. The two main protagonists shares an unusual yet close relationship with one another. In their world, they discover many innovations and crosses paths with others through a type of journey. There are some animal symbolism and motifs throughout both series although Escha & Logy plays it mostly off as comedy. Spice and Wolf on the other hand has additional elements of romance. I recommend both fantasy series for those who are interested in a exploration and creative thought.
"RPG like flavor" and some sort of naivety... thats what makes this two series alike so far. Though Atelier's first episode lack that random jokes from Campanella...

It might get better with the time, but with such a beginning... you should see that by yourself.
- Both series are adaptation from a game.
- both series focus on understanding the mysteries of their worlds.
While tales of the abyss focus more action and adventure, Escha & Logy no Atelier: Tasogare no Sora no Renkinjutsushi focus more on fullfilling quests just like in a real game.
Strange technology exists in the worlds of both Tales of the Abyss and Escha & Logy. There are innovative concepts involved with certain inventions that are present in their stories. Tales of the Abyss adapts more of an adventurous scenario while Escha & Logy has more creative gimmicks. The main female characters are curious and is eager explore their world to discover its origins. If you're into fantasy stories with a colorful cast of characters in a world with diverse concepts, then give both a try.
Humanity is dwindling and is in desperate need of resources in order to survive in both series. The setting is very similar and and both hold secrets and mysterious places. They both have girls with pink hair and green eyes as the main protagonists who are employed in a position that plays a vital role to the functioning of their town.
