Gods once lived on earth, and two siblings, Oceanus - God of Water, and Hyperia - Goddess of Fire, lived in peace and dearly loved each other. However, the God of Wind, Algaroc, become jealous of the pair's happiness, and spread lies and deceit between them until their hatred for each other brought about war.

Finally, Algaroc was imprisoned by the King of Gods, but after that time, the brother and sister still despised each other, so the Children of Fire and Water forever remained apart. But, then Prince Syrius of the Water and Princess Malta of the Fire meet and fall in love. The love of Syrius and Malta may not be enough to surpass their parents' hatred. Whether they can stay together forever may be impossible

Hey this is my second review for a show that hasn't gotten any recognition.

Story-Well its the Romeo Juliet esque plot line with two sets of parents and or families in which despise each other. The introductory part of the story tells how the Water god and Fire god came into conflict.The sea prince is the son of the Water god at first he shows a trait for running away on his escapades. Conversingly the fire princess and or fire child is dutiful to her mother at first( guarding the flame etc..). After the two main characters encounter each other is less friendly with an exchange read more

Legend of Sirius is a Dis­ney Movie. OK, it’s not by Dis­ney or by any of the staff from Dis­ney, but not a single aspect of it makes me feel like it ori­gin­ated from Japan, obvi­ously helped by watch­ing the dub. It’s a re ima­gin­ing of the clas­sic Romeo and Juliet tale except this time set in a myth­ical land between Fire People and Water People. Because if there’s ever two things that don’t get along, fire vs water is only beaten by light vs dark and moe fans vs mecha fans. So much of this is clas­sic Dis­ney. The main char­ac­ter has a wise-cracking read more

The story is pretty much a Romeo and Juliet style with elemental gods instead of humans. This makes me have mixed feelings. While the story is so old and pretty much exactly what you would expect of the tale, I do like the gods a bit. Sadly, it was not enough to save the story as it felt bland in both voice acting and artwork. It just doesn’t pop at all and I felt myself becoming bored while watching it as there was no surprise, no special meaning behind any of it.

The artwork is pretty beautiful but it is far from perfect. While the watercolors read more

Basically it's a Romeo and Juliet style story, right down to the not-so-happily-ever-after ending.

Sanrio is a funny little company - known for their overwhelming cuteness overload with Hello Kitty and friends, and yet earlier in their existence they were also known for making movies with stories that are not exactly kiddie-friendly. Like Bell of Chirin.

In this case, you have a little bit of nudity, and (as mentioned above) non-Disney-everybody-happy ending. Its a tragic tale of forbidden love between two people who must forever be kept apart; but the real tragedy is there is hope read more
