Let not the cover art fool you, Amon Saga is from 1986 so the animation is very basic (yet typical of that time) and might not appeal to most audiences accustomed to modern illustration styles. Having said that, the sequences are fluid but do occassionally seem to stall with frames where animation was done against still background shots. This anime does not show much attention to image detail or definition but this is probably due to budget constraints. It seems evident that Amon Saga did not recieve a digital remastering when issued into its DVD format leaving the images blurry and the colours read more

I give a better rating for this movie, and although there are flaws left and right with some animation drops, i like it, Time consuming in this today´s rushed world or not i like it. Not the most Original anime story from 1986 and not the best one , but its enjoyable enough without the digitalized anime, all of it ws handdrwan ofc and have sort of slight ´a la vampire hunter D scent´ with the medevil fantasy background and mystical monsters. >The development and designs for our heroe´s and villians is shoddy compared to todays standarts LIKE I CARE, but could do read more

Amon Saga is a surprisingly rare example of pure fantasy anime in the 80s, a period where cannon bristling mecha and cosmos faring starships will muscle their way into any action/adventure anime; regardless of genre. One of the few other anime I can think of is Arion, released the same year but based more on Greek mythology than swords and sorcery type stuff.

This anime also reminds me alot of Eiyuu Gaiden Mozaicka with the vengeance seeking stoic bishounen warrior banding together an array of colourful personalities to take down an imposing masked villain bent on conquest. I'd call this anime extremely generic fantasy; in read more

Amon Saga is a ridiculous OVA from 1986. Yoshitaka Amano worked on the script and character design which was enough to pique my interest; he’s a great artist and I recommend you check out his work. Except maybe Amon Saga; I recommend you stay as far away from Amon Saga as possible. This thing is capital L Lame. A lot of anime from this time period has been derided for being unnecessarily violent, having questionable animation, and telling piss poor stories. Unfortunately Amon Saga fits the bill pretty well in all of these categories.

The film in a nutshell: Amon is involved in an epic saga. read more
