Takaya Ougi is just a typical high school guy who wants nothing more than to protect his best friend and live a normal life. Enter Nobutsuna Naoe, an older man who informs Takaya that he is in fact the reincarnation of Lord Kagetora. Naoe, himself a possessor, awakens Takaya's abilities to exorcise evil spirits and fight the Fuedal Underworld. While most possessors remember their former lives before being reincarnated, Takaya does not. Naoe is thankful for this, considering his passionate and abusive past with his Lord Kagetora. As Takaya improves his abilities, he also begins to remember what Naoe did because of his love for him. Meanwhile the dark forces of the Hojo and Fuma clans begin their attack as the Fuedal Underworld descends upon the living world.

Want to watch some cool bishounen? Check out this story about Takaya Oogi, a regular high school student trying to lead a normal life. I looked at this series with curiosity of how shounen-ai would be used. But, I found the story more interesting beyond what I imagined.

Although everything, in the story, at first seemed peaceful, a major turn in events surprised me. But, once the story unveiled itself after time, the fear of freaky spirits disappeared from my system. I grew interested in finding out what happened with Takaya.

First of all, I want to say that I found the artwork incredibly impressive. I think read more

Let me be honest here. I started watching Mirage of Blaze in my endless search of good shounen ai and yaoi anime. After reading some reviews, I still had no idea what to expect, so I decided to try it out and see for myself.

I will save some of you readers some time now and tell this right away: In my opinion this show is best fit for those viewers who, like me, grave for shounen ai and are desperately trying to find series with even the bare minimum of it. I don't want to mislead anyone to watch Mirage of Blaze as anything else, read more

It wasn't a bad anime. It just wasn't a good anime. But I suppose it is good enough that I manage to watch all 13 episodes within about 3 days.

The animation was weird to me that so many of the characters basically look alike and I kept getting confused as to who was who. I'll cut it some slack. This anime is over a decade old but still the fight scenes were a bit weak and disappointing.

Characters....i'd say the characters were mildly interesting. Surprisingly no one really annoyed me or I flat out hated them. They were tolerable enough but this is one of the read more

So this was playing in the "yaoi" (not really) room at Fanime 2007, and I parked myself and my luggage in there since I did not yet have my badge or a hotel room in which to store my stuff. (Con advice: make sure at least one person from each travel party has a name on the hotel reservation so you can get a key upon arrival.)

Guh. GUH.

Admittedly I was interested in this anime upon seeing the previews. The character designs reminded me of "X" and "Tokyo Babylon" (the main character is a Seishirou ripoff liek whoa), and there was some nice scenery. I have read more
