Dreams begin to haunt Lady Sheru -- dreams of her past life as Pirotesse. Her love, Ashram, is being tormented at the hands of the soul of Barbas posing as their former king, Beld of Marmo. Interpreting this as a plea for help, Sheru searches for a way to save him by entering the chaos realm using the Chaos Ring. Meanwhile, Redon and his friends are called to arms again as ancient creatures begin to appear after being sealed away for centuries. Both their paths will cross once again, and on their shoulders will the fate of Crystania lie.
This is my first review and I'm glad I'm starting with this anime. I really enjoyed watching this, I didn't expect it to be so good.
First, the story is really interesting, there are many unpredictable events that made me love it. The art was also great too, there's so much fantasy in it, the towns, the valleys, the dragons, everything was very well-made. The sound is one of the best parts of this anime. I really love these epic orchestral sounds which fit best to this kind of anime and created an epic atmosphere. Most characters were really cool,such as Asthram, although I think
the main character could be made a bit better.
There's a unique feel to this and I think it's one of the best animes of this genre.If you are a fan of RPG games, then I highly recommend this anime to you, that's why I also enjoyed watching this very much.
This is your typical fantasy story. It checks all of the boxes for a typical fantasy tale. The most lacking areas are the artwork/animation and the sound. This did come out in the late 90's so if you don't like older animation then this isn't for you. That being said, it wasn't bad, and it does have a pretty good story.
It is filled with some decent characters. There isn't a lot of humor because it is mostly a serious story. It takes place in a different realm/universe and a couple characters visit a dream world that is referred to as the "chaos realm" a couple
of times. There is a group trying to revive their evil master, and then there is another group trying to stop them. It has magical beasts, dragons, and magical warriors. It is more or less midieval themed to be a little more specific. It's not super complicated, but again, it does check all of the boxes for your typical fantasy story.
All in all it wasn't great, but it was worth watching. I did like it but it is sitting at a low 7 for me. To compare to something else I would liken it to the old fantasy movies from the late 80's early 90's (The Conan movies, Willow, etc.) for tone. To compare animation, it's like Heavy Metal without the boobs. It isn't super cheesy, but it does have it's cheese quality. It's better than a lot I have seen, but I have seen better.
If you're into serious and slightly cheesy fantasy movies then you should check this OVA series out. If not, then no need to watch it.
It's as bad as the motion picture. I give it the same review. Cheap violence, predictable story, boring plot, and not fun to watch. This one belongs at the bottom of the barrel with Kimera, Guyver, Violence Jack, and Excel Saga. Wait, maybe not Violence Jack. That was at least so bad and cheesy, it was at least funny.
