This is a tale of swords and sorcery as the young warrior-woman Tia Allbright and her hapless assistant, Luke, battle demon assassins in a fantasy land.

Tia arrives on the island of Marcleida with her trusted sword 'Grandeek,' which holds a spirit within that helps her on her quests. She is soon turned away however. Determined to get on the island, Tia searches for a way past the fences that guard the entrance, as another stranger arrives on the island to take on a mysterious job. Someone has been killing the inhabitants of the island and has the ability to appear and disappear at will. Seems the sword 'Aihorn' has been stolen and the spirit that resides within it seeks vengenance on those who killed its master 50 years before.

As Tia makes her way inside the island, it becomes clear that both she, and the stranger, are after the sword Aihorn, hoping to bring to an end its bloody goal. But the sword has the ability to possess the person who wields it - putting Tia and the stranger at a great disadvantage.

Based on the manga by Kohime Ohse, Tia and Grandeek will have to face their most difficult challenge yet...

Grundig? The German domestic appliance manufacturer? Ohh! Grandeek, that is right! Glad to see we will not stray too far from the animation topic. You may as well regard this title as a loose portemanteau of Grandiloquent. "If you reach and seize the hilt... then, you will be able to grasp the suffering etched within the weapon"

Lines like these make a fantasy anime's introduction grand-sounding and yet so vacuous. Indeed, Tia, the heroine, does not even need to grab the cursed sword Aihorn (whose name sounds awfully as an Engrish slang for penis, by the way) to casually interact with it, thus making her ...

Grandeek – SS Overview

(Short and Salty Overview)

I have no prior knowledge about Grandeek and have never read the manga, this was just something I had backlogged in my anime folder. So this came out in 2000 huh? Yeah I guess the animation is a bit dated even for an OVA but its okay.

I can say I can’t make much sense from the story as it seems to just throw you in at a random point in the manga, like I said I can’t say that’s fact as I haven’t read the manga but it feels like that. You follow a girl who speaks to ...
