Zektbach is the pseudonym for a bloke who makes fantasy themed electronica music. The music all comes together as part of a story of sorts in the forms of character CD's and so on. To expect a story of any real quality from these is perhaps asking too much. And, to be fair, the music is pretty cool, which is what he's selling. Lots of ladies doing chanting and all that. But still, the anime based of it is awful.

The story is about a woman with a magical sword who lazily swings it against hordes of heavily armoured grunts on CGI horses with terrible aiming read more

Story 5/10
At first, with the interesting opening, typical narrator voice zoom, and awesome war scene introduction, this would seem to be a high rating anime/ova. However, after the intro the main action dies down, it awkwardly turns into some type of mystery and mass murder anime. As I'll say later in my analysis of the characters, the characters start to act like idiots (somewhat justifiably) in a way that emphatically annoys the viewer. It basically just leaves one irritatedly wondering "..." (see below).

Art 7/10

Overall this OVA was pretty boring, nonetheless the storyline was kind messed up and your gonna say "WTH just happened?"

The only good part of this OVA was the character design and that's all I have to say about it.

So,I would not recommend this to anyone because your just gonna waste 30 minutes of your life over it. ( I just did.)

Overall the anime wasn't bad for a short story. The character designs lacked originality as all the main women were nearly naked with large breasts and not dressed for the battlefield at all.

Where it shines though is past that, as the story is about a sword that is cursed or curses the wielder. It's a reminder about too much power in battle and not learning when you've been utterly defeated.

The strengths are the original plot dealing with a cursed sword, even though this sword seems to tap into the matrix. The idea of a dancing sword style and the fact that a strong woman read more
