Aside from the references, this anime isn't directly connected to the Final Fantasy V game. It takes place many years after the game, and though it is said that Linaly, the main female character, is a descendant of Bartz, this Bartz could very well be some random legendary hero.

There are job classes, though without the particular outfits and there are four crystals as in practically every Final Fantasy. The plot features the quest to protect the wind crystal after the others are stolen by a new enemy, a strange alien with advanced technology whose base is located in the black moon, a natural satellite of read more

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: November 30, 2013. Review #71: Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals


I have played Final Fantasy V before and I didn’t really enjoy that game as much even though many fans of the series thought the fifth installment was a bit underappreciated. What I didn’t like about Final Fantasy V was its story, it just seemed a little disappointing which makes me wonder why there was a continuation of the story in anime form. Which brings me to Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals.

For someone like me that has never played the games before, a lot of this anime's references will be utterly lost, however that doesn't stop it from being a fun and enjoyable anime in its own right.
The story is midly confusing (probably attributable to the short lenght and its links to the games) and moves quite quickly in places which certainly doesn't help those with no game knowledge, but that doesn't really detract from the overall experience.
This OVA is pretty much carried by its characters, which were interesting, varied and utterly insane: from a block-headed protagonist (who nevertheless remains endearing, despite his occasional displays of read more

Before I begin, let me start with a quick disclaimer. I like the Final Fantasy games, for the most part. If I poke fun at the franchise a bit during the course of this review it's not because I just don't like the series, it's because the series has a lot of goofy aspects. I've looked at a few anime adaptations of video games in the past. I've looked at bad ones, Ninja Gaiden being the obvious example. Average ones, Nightstalkers and ones that were pretty good, Tales of Phantasia. This week I'm going to be looking at a selection from one of my favourite read more

Anime: Gensou Jotan Ellcia
Very similar art style, setting, and theme. Vaguely SNES-era fantasy JRPG settings, with airships, pirates, and [possible minor spoiler] co-opting the power of God.

Anime: Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru
Both have the RPG genre in the anime, spells, lots of magic, swords, mistresses to be saved, magical beasts and of course, those funny "You f**ked it up" moments!! 
reportRecommended by Shura-shurato
Anime: Street Fighter II V
Both are related on their famous videogame franchise, although FF is more close to the ealier saga before number 7, but streetfighter stays true to the fans both are very enjoyable to watch! 
reportRecommended by Shura-shurato
Anime: Bakuretsu Hunters
the fantasy-comedy genre is overwhelmly simmilair at both of these, lots of scorcery, swordfights, re-eincarnations and lots of funny moments what can be enjoyed with the whole fammily.
