Synopsis

Six years ago at the magic school known as the Tower of Fang, a grave accident happened involving the magical sword Baltanders and the magic user Azali. Unable to control the sword's power, Azali was transformed into the shape of a great dragon who since that day became known as Bloody August. Krilancelo, a young magician at the Tower who cared greatly for Azali found much to his disgust that the elders of the Tower of Fang were less than willing to save Azali and wanted rather to pretend the accident never happened. Angered by their stand, Krilanceloa swore that he would find a way to return Azali to her former self. Thus he forsook the name Krilancelo and declared himself Orphen, leaving the Tower and his magical studies behind to wander the world...

Orphen is not something that will leave you thinking you just watched one of the greatest animes of all time. It's a good fantasy story presented in a nice way. The opening statement might sound negative but it's better to be blunt about it, it's not.

The story is enjoyable and the best thing about the anime. Some nice changes to pretty common story elements make Orphen get a story that is good and solid. The mix of humorus sceens and action and battle scenes it done very well and in a way that helps the story along and doesn't feel like it has been put read more

A protagonist who gave up his name
Searching for a dragon out of affection
Accompanied by a rich girl and apprentice
Who seek guidance for a better life direction

With two trolls as comic relief
And a organization out to stop the hero
A story of trust and betrayal unfolds
With chances of success being zero

What might sound as a familiar story
One you've heard time and again
Watch and you'll see what a nice story this is
Here is Majutsushi Orphen

i really liked this anime because its full of humor, action and plenty of fantasy. it was fun to watch but i'd personally enjoy it more if it had a little more depth into it. The storyline and ideas behind it, are amazingly well done but i think if they put some more dramatic moments (not the cheesy ones) it'd bring more attention. either way, over all, i'd say an 8 sounds good. the 2 points that are really missing are the lack of character development for cleo and maybe Orphens apprentice. but other than that, i'd recommend this anime to people who arent into read more

This will be my first review. At this moment, I believe that I would have the right eyesight to review and critique an anime considering the amount I have watched. Also, the fact that I was just too lazy to write one. :P Well just bare with me.

Majutsushi Orphen... Hmmm. You can always read the description that MAL gives you but it doesn't do the anime any justice towards its story whatsoever. It has a somewhat deeper demeanor that gives the viewer a new way to view the world around them.

Considering from other anime series, this one is one of the best classic read more
