Ten years ago, a massive invasion by the Erebonian Empire almost shattered the Kingdom of Liberl, piercing to the heart of Capital City before being driven back by a determined counteroffensive led by Cassius Bright. Now, as the invaders pace behind the northern borders, coveting the small kingdom's magic and high technology, Liberl slowly rebuilds with the aid of the Bracer's Guild, whose mystical use of "Craft" is even more intrinsic to the nation's defense than its own army. For young Estelle Bright, daughter of Cassius, this is all just ancient history that she and her adopted brother Joshua learned as kids. But history has a way of repeating itself, and as they prepare to join the Bracers Guild themselves, sinister forces are preparing to thrust them into the familiar family situation of being in the worst possible place when mayhem breaks out. Because when their father's airship goes suddenly missing, of course it only makes sense to two green, but extraordinarily capable, young teenagers to strike out on a rescue mission of their own!

Video game adaptations are not easy to execute, and for good reason. Taking something from one medium to the other, especially mediums like video games or visual novels (in some cases, even manga) is difficult, because whatever has been written is written, well, for that medium.

For example:

1)- There's the interactive elements which simply have to be removed or done in a way that doesn't feel forced (if you've seen many video game or visual novel adaptations, you know what I'm talking about). Say, people randomly stumbling across the main character and talking one by one, or it being too easy to tell the important read more

Anime based on a game. Anime adaptation from a video game. Anyway, whatever it's called, my expectations are USUALLY low whenever a video game gets an adaptation, whether its a live-action movie(or simply just movie) or an anime. And to no one's surprise, Eiyuu Densetsu is no different. So for this, Eiyuu Densetsu Sora no Kiseki or Legend of Heroes : Trails in the Sky The Animation gets an anime. One note though, Nihon Falcom is one company which makes one of my favourite RPG game series - Ys.

Getting straight to the point - Overall, Eiyuu Densetsu is just so-so. Story is so read more

This OVA really god choice for short watching as a movie, it gets you instantly hooked and holds to the end, but being and short have a lot of downsides that you can find after watching Legend of the Heroes: Trails in the Sky.

First of all short anime equals short story and here you can see one of strange way of telling it: they cut beginning and ending of it (full story can be found while playing the game) and i think it makes more time for pure action. Other than what is good beside few unexplained things that you have to figure read more

Being a very passionate JRPG gamer, i`m always excited about anime representations of my favourite games. There are many instances where it works as a nice addition to the source material, even if it basically retells the games storyline or only alters it to some degree (Persona 4, Tales of the Abyss), someteimes it`s a big disappointment and puts shame to an amazing game (Xenosaga). Sadly the Sora no Kiseky OVA falls to the latter cathegory.

Even though the Eiyuu Densetsu games by japanese developer Falcom are
quite popular in their home country, the JRPG series only became somewhat known in the west through its 6th read more
