Synopsis

Ten years after the Great War against the demon-beasts, the empire rules over the world and prosperity relies on the massive use of aer.

Yuri Lowell and Flynn Scifo are two young men who have just enrolled the ranks of the prestigious Imperial Knights. One day, they are sent to the town of Ceazontania, where abnormal aer activity has reportedly caused the proliferation of horribly mutated beasts, with serious threat for the whole region.

Meanwhile, the Knights Supreme Commander Alexei Denoia and the naive Princess Estellise are involved in a behind-the-curtains struggle for power in the capital. The situation in Ceazontania deteriorates as the garrison of Imperial Knights finds that they cannot expect any immediate support from the capital.

Then, Niren Fedrok, commander of the Imperial Knights in Ceazontania, takes an unexpected decision that is going to change Yuri and Flynn's destiny forever.

What are the secrets behind the extraordinary events that are happening around Yuri and Flynn? Will they be able to defend the innocent people of Ceazontania and stay true to their beliefs?

What amazing luck. I happen to complete the game the same week the movie comes out. This caught me completely by surprise, but I was extremely excited. When I initially started the game, I thought it was a bit corny and maybe even childish, but a few hours in and there was incredible character development and storyline threads stretching across, to the point where I even cared for the villains. Truly an exceptional experience from the game.

If you are a fan of the game, then there's no doubt you will love this movie. I went in with no expectations, except knowing that read more

In recent years video games, be they console or PC based, have moved to the forefront of popular entertainment. One of the upshots of this trend has been the a marked increase in the number of adaptations and spinoffs that can be found in manga and anime (and that's without including the doujin market). The major problem though, is that studios, production companies and storytellers are doing nothing more than recycling an existing concept, and while the adaptation may actually be pretty decent in some cases (Tears to Tiara for example), more often than not one is served a big plate of mediocrity (I'm looking read more

"Trust me the feeling is mutual, I still don't get why you even joined the knights at all!"

Tales of Vesperia, the game that is, happens to be a very special game to me - sure, its story isn't its highest selling point and the game really drags towards the end, but overall, I had a blast experiencing the world of Terca Lumiries - especially the characters, Vesperia has one of my favourite video game casts ever, particularly Rita Mordio - who I have a great adoration for, being my favourite female character in any form of media to date. However, until necessary, I won't let read more

After fully completing the game and becoming a big fan, this movie comes out. And I have to say I was suprised and happy at the same time. At first I didn't know what to expect from this movie, but after I was done watching it I was very impressed. I was wondering how well they would do connecting the movie with the game. And they did a pretty good job. They also did a good job letting some of the characters from the game, have some scenes through out the movie.

If you played the game and enjoyed it I think you should defiently give read more

Recommendations

Both are animated entries in the popular RPG series "Tales of". Featuring fantasy, magic, and swordfighting! Both contain exciting action sequences, magic, and evil villains!

Tales of Vesperia is aimed at a slightly older audience than Tales of Symphonia, however.
Similar style , art , atmosphere , and fantasy if you like it you will like the other ...
Very similar theme; a group of soldiers who fought with melee weapons and magic. You'll see many similarities, if you liked one of these, you have to watch other one. Tears to Tiara is respectively longer and have many little chapters before it comes to main goal , but overall it's the same subject.
Show may be different due to it's differences but the main Characters Lelouch and Suzaku's ideals and friendship are similar to Yuri and Flynn where Lelouch and Yuri wants to change from the outside and Suzaku and Flynn wants to change within. Both are awesome where it involves battles, politics, corruption, drama, blood, loss of allies, and friendship.
> People live under shield because the outside world is ruled by fierce beasts ( Titans in Shingeki No Kyojin )
> The Main characters are goverment soliders with different desires
> Both goes very dramatic in the process
> Medieval themed but in a fantasy world
The fights against the evils in a good cause. While Vesperia is more serious and a bit more mature, Eternia has a lot of comedy and side stories to tell. However, when it comes to conclusion, shows can be recommended to watch because it's like another tale in one big fantasy book with "Tales of" in title.
