These days we often misuse words in ways that sometimes don't make sense. Take "epic" for example, and think about all of the occasions where the term has been applied as a colloquialism that simply means "I enjoyed it" , "it was very good", or some other sentiment along those lines. It's actually surprising how many people don't know the meaning or usage of the word, but rather than comment on the failure of education systems, let's have a look at how "epic" applies to an anime like Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (or The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, whatever floats your boat).

The unique (and corny) name is what got my interest in this anime. I read the description looking forward to a great plot that contained fantasy and adventure, but it ended up with trite comedy, disappointment and magic tricks.

Story: 6/10

General Scenario:

The beginning (first two episodes) was dare I say, terrible? It's most likely to turn viewers off leaving them to think "I'll pass". It jumps around, confusing the viewer instead of being intriguing. The story contains Ryner Lute being a lazy student and Ryner as well as Ferris searching for relics. It's much more than that but unfortunately it doesn't evolve everything it introduces.

I often think that as long as I know what to expect from a show, it couldn’t disappoint me. First impressions from the title alone gave a sense it was trying too hard to be epic, but that didn’t matter since I expected “Legend of the Legendary Heroes” to be a fun, clichéd romp. But instead of creating a brainless fantasy flick for dumb people like myself, the show adopts a taste for complexities with writing that leaves a bad taste.

The story opens with two of the three main characters, the wizard Ryner and the knight Ferris, as they journey across the continent of Menoris read more

I implore anyone that is wanting to watch this to really decide if 12 hours of your life are worth it, because here you'll have wasted your time greatly, the story doesn't end at the last episode it leaves you with not quite a huge cliffhanger but it doesn't finish it for you either. I feel the ending makes it seem like there should be a second season, but there isn't, i don't know if the light novel finishes this or not but i strongly recommend not watching it if you don't like to use your imagination on someone else's fantasy world like myself.

Both in "Chrome Shelled Regios" and in "Densetsu no yuusha no densetsu", the hero is a boy, who, in the beginning, is trying to hide his past and exceptional abilities (tenken-user, alpha stigma) playing the dumb, pretending to be unintrested, slow and unskilled. Other similarities seem to be the fantastic setting, the presence of the fantastic itself (the mysterious regious and their spirits and monsters the student-soldiers are fighting against, magic), organizations of selected fighters (tenken-users, orphanage training soldier-magicians) and smaller groups of friends of the hero who are operating together, and finally (there might be more, but I will just leave it at that  read more 
It has Jun Fukuyama voicing the protagonist, a boy who has a great power in his eyes and that sometimes goes berserk. The plot is about war and revenge between Royalty, the purpose of the one of the protagonists is to build a better world by becoming king, no matter what sacrifices he must do. Also contains Best friends turning into enemies.  
There are many similiarities between Denyuden and Berserk like both are set in past with monsters and stuff. There are character similarities as well like Sion and Griffith. Both series are not afraid to show blood and are very dark(though Denyuden does have humor in it). On top of that, both series conclude in a similar way. 
The art is similar, and the plot involves people with special powers. The main girl uses a magical sword to fight and is always teasing and fighting with the main guy. The main guy had a painful childhood where he was despised and bullied by everyone, and also, he lost his first love. He also has a huge power inside him, and if that power stays out of control, he becomes evil. The symbol of that power is on his eyes. 
They are both fantasy and action shounen about magic.

i think they are the same. magic, heroes, and the main character, Sai Akuto and Ryner, sometimes can be a monster that can destroy world. there are comedy too.
