The synopsis for this anime really does it no justice, there is much more going on then them just searching for relics. Honestly, the relic searching did not really last all that long. One thing that stood out to me in this anime is it was actually very funny, there should have been a comedy genre added, however, comedy was not the only thing that caught my attention.
The premise of the story could seem a bit cliche, there are quite a few other anime where the main has an incredible power and has to overcome the effects of a past that held many hardships due to this power, but nonetheless this anime was still pretty great. It was enjoyable to see the hardships that Ryner had endured throughout his life and how he was able to overcome them. Also, they put quite a bit of back story on the other characters, such as Sion and Ferris, which was nice to see. That backstory adds a better connection to the characters as they face the conflicts together. Now onto my specific review points.
As I stated above, it does seem at first glance to be a cliche of sorts, but the synopsis is quite under-developed. There is more than just them searching for relics, much of it is based on the power that Ryner has and the hardships that came and are to come from it. Also, the comical parts in this story were quite enjoyable as well, whether it be the constant whining or witty remarks of Ryner about his naps, or Ferris' constant belittling of Ryner with her large imagination of perversion.
The art was not anything spectacular, although it was well done and they did not use many shortcuts. They had a good amount of detail as well. The gore scenes usually had some sort of shade above them not making them easy to see, but it was still good drawn overall.
The sound was ok. Nothing really struck me as really bad, or really good, it matched fine, but it did lack in some respects. The English voice acting was pretty good, the main characters seemed to match well with the voice actors. I have no speculation on the Japanese voice actors, as I have not watched the subbed.
I liked the fact they gave lots of back-ground information on the other main characters and didn't just focus of Ryner. The flash backs and the information on Ryner was very tragic and gave a lot of meaning to the story.
The story was great. I loved the way the characters were portayed, being that Ryner is a lazy guy that has witty remarks, and Ferris having the very funny imagination. The comedy in this anime was very funny, even though there was not a comedy tag. Also, being that Ryner was so powerful, it was cool to see how he progressed with his power, and how he gave it meaning.
I really enjoyed this anime. There were many aspects I did not plan to see, such as the comedy, and the small amount of romance. Many people may see it as cliche and boring, but the synopsis really does it no justice. So give this anime a try, and maybe you too, will find it to be a great watch. 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 for now), a strong leader among the student of the academy themselves (Loss, Shion). The latter series has aired only 2 episodes yet, so I cannot really tell, but I suppose that if you like one, you might like (or at least check out) the other. ^^
Same director and both have strong leads who dislike fighting and an unknown past.
The character design is very similar to DNYND, and both the main character don't really like to show off their powers. Also, in the same way that Alfon Alseif is being manipulated by the President there, Kalian Ross, Reiner Lute from DNYND is also being manipulated by the king, Sion Astal, to find the Hero relics.
Both are very good shows, although the ending of DNYND suggests that the series hasn't ended yet.
First of all Both main characters would rather not use their power, and secondly both animes contain slightly supernatural fighting. Legend has more us of powers though, but either way if you can make it through the first 3 episodes of legends or chrome shelled regios you'll be addicted.
-Both main charecters are very OP (overpowered)
Legend is more sad, while chrome is more of a fun action with a less deep story.
overall both are a good 8-9/10 anime if you can get into them maybe even a 10.
Same studio, similar art and character design
CSR and DenYuuDen are similar due to the fact that both main characters have a dark past and they try to hide it, Both are Action,Comedy and adventure along with strong main characters. If you liked one, try the other.
Both protagonists are very powerful people Ryner Lute(Alpha Stigma bearer) Layfon Alseif(One of the heavenly sword weilders). Both want nothing to do with fighting and want to be left alone. Both have a friend that has high status in CSR (chairman) in DYD (king). Both have a girl that is likes them but won't admit it. Both have good OP songs.
Both are packed with loads of action and cool fighting scenes.
Huge display of power from both protagonists and other characters.
Both boy protagonists are very strong. Instead of making use of that power, they decide to live an easy life where you dont need to fight to survive. They both get forced to join the fight platoons where they will be fighting strong beasts/magic users. They are both relaxing/interesting anime, I highly recommend it.
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.
both of them (main protaginists) are great "magicans" in a sense,
they both have a swordsman girl as a comrade/ally
they both have special eye powers that are rare.
they both have a laid-back attitude but there still super strong
both of them are "alone"
The relationship between the two main characters are almost identical. In both the animes the girl is hotheaded and always seems to be angry at the protagonist but actually likes him. Both protagonists are ridiculously strong and both the girls weild swords.
Both of these have a strong protagonist right from the start of the anime. Both protagonists have a dark/sad history. Both also anime have magic involved. Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu has a medieval fantasy setting while Kaze no Stigma has a modern setting.
These series spawned off of light novels, and have a lot of fighting but not like really boring fighting, you know? I usually get bored when battles drag out for around 3 episodes. They kept my attention. They have a good story line and both of the protags (Ryner and Kazuma) are suffering from their past (so many feels!) I found both of these animes so good because they're so comedic. They both have supernatural and romance going on, I strongly suggest you watch them even if you don't like fighting anime because they are more about adventure, tragedy, romance, and comedy.
Kaze no Stigma is very similar to Denetsu in that they both have strong male leads whom use magic and fight side by side with a female main character, they both are at time reluctant to fight and ostracized by the populous for their amazing strength
While based in different timelines (Kaze in modern, Denetsu in ancient) they both have a similar feel to them
Both protagonists have very laid-back personality and are very powerful, also both are outcasts and have very dark/ painful history's. The main girl in both is hot headed and uses a sword. Both have a very similar feel to them and are great to watch.
