Have you ever wondered about Greek Gods & Myths and how they came about??
This Korean Anime will go a bit of the way to give you the basics.
I know a lot of people struggle to listen to Chinese/Korean or anything other than Japanese, do not let that put you off.
There are some Great Korean Anime out there if you look hard enough, you will get used to the voices in no time.
Art is not the best but it fits with the storyline.
The characters (are the best part in this ) will be well known to many of you as they are even famous today.
Hades, Medusa, Icarus, Hercules, Perseus, Pegasus, Narcissus, Eros, Hermes, who has not heard of at least a couple of these.
Zeus is the leader of the Gods and with many others appears frequently in these Tales, his wife Hera is the one trying to keep him in check.
I did not think Echo or Midas had anything to do with Greek Gods until i watched this, also Pandora is featured here.
These are actually probably aimed at a younger audience who have no knowledge before this, it's like a watered down version of the real thing.
I really did enjoy most of the 39 episodes and learned a few new things i did not know before.
What they do not tell you is most of the Greek Gods were Womanizers, Kidnappers, Rapists & Murderers. If you said no to Zeus he would Kidnap you, Rape you and Murder anyone who tried to rescue you, in this he takes you away happily.
That aside, you will enjoy these if you are even the slightest bit interested in Greek Mythology, I did.
