Synopsis

The story follows Elk, a bounty hunter in some strange futuristic world. On this world archaic but advanced technology exists side by side with primitive attitudes, beasts and magic. In other words it's got a bit of everything. It also has an evil conspiracy who are able to produce powerful monsters called chimera, who can also appear as human. Naturally it is not long before Elk has rescued a young female beast-master and gained himself some serious enemies.

Arc the Lad, the adventure show that's just a touch darker then others of its type.

Story

The story follows a young hunter named Elk and his quest for revenge against the infamous Arc. Although it starts off simply, things gradually grow more complex as soon as our so called antagonist enter the picture. Still the main point of this series is to show the growth of Elk and the heroine Lieza as characters. What can revenge do to a person, what can being overwhelmed by hatred hope to accomplish? Though these may be questions that other shows have presented as well, it's executed well read more

Ive never played the game, so...


this anime had a good story, and decent characters.

I thought the first food episodes were good, and that a young girl with some kind of demon beast thing as a companion was nice, but the happiness of the anime slowly withered away with man eating black tar things, evil science experiments like turning people into monsters.

KIND OF A SPOILER, BUT ITS GIVEN LATER
Me not liking sad anime, the scene wear a little girl the main character hadent seen since he was 13 or so was a green naked girl that was used to produce the enemy that people were read more
