Synopsis

Most people think that ninjas are a thing of the past, but Rekka Hanabishi wishes otherwise. Although he comes from a family that makes fireworks, he likes to think of himself as a self-styled, modern-day ninja. Sounds like fun, right? Maybe not. Rekka ends up in lots of fights because he once made the bold announcement that if someone can defeat him, he will become their servant.

Then one day, Rekka meets Yanagi Sakoshita, a gentle girl with the ability to heal any wound or injury. Their meeting sets off a chain of events, which culminate into a shocking discovery. Rekka is the last surviving member of a legendary ninja clan that was wiped out centuries ago. Even more astonishing than being an actual ninja, he also wields the power to control fire. What does this mean for Rekka? Who are these strange people after him and Yanagi? Find out in Rekka no Honoo!

The most prominent precursor to the ever popular Naruto, Flame of Recca is essentially, Dragon Ball, Rurouni Kenshin, Naruto, and Kaze no Stigma all rolled into one package. Of course, in terms of originality, it deserves a high commendation, but that's about all the praise I can muster for this series.

The story is lethargic. It follows a very formulaic approach. The main protagonist, Recca goes through a sequence of ordeals to realize his true strength and then manages to win over enemies with his never say die attitude. Banal. Seen that a million times. But that doesn't mean it's read more

It only offers a very small fraction of what the manga truly has to offer. It only focuses on 2 or 3 story arcs and I feel that if you’re at all a fan of the original manga, you’re certainly going to be cheated because it only offers a true fraction of what this series truly has to offer. But for this anime as a whole, it covers enough ground to give the viewers an introduction to the characters and offers excellent development. A majority of the main cast starts out as Recca’s rivals such as Domon and Fuuko, but eventually bigger circumstances such as read more

This is your typical shounen anime when it all comes down to it. It was produced by the huge Studio Pierrot and even directed by the same man whom directed Yu Yu Hakusho, Noriyuki Abe. Needless to explain that when it came to shounen anime, this combo does it right.

Even the plot reminds any shounen anime fan of what they could be watching instead. Flame of Recca focuses on the main character by the name of Recca Hanabishi. He is the last living member of a ninja clan famous for their use of crazy weaponry. The weaponry becomes a huge plot point soon enough when read more

Story.
I hate myself for beliving this anime was worth spending my time...And I don't say because it was bad...I say this because the ending left me hanging the cliff wondering what hapened before...I know is not allowed to rage and all that stuff...but...why in the fuck's name the producers left the ending so....plain?!? What hapened with Kurei? Did he ever fighted Recca again? Did he became a good guy? or is still the plain "bad guy" type? Did he go to his time again? Wait...What about Kougane'si Kogan Anki [it was suposed to show us the "legendary cool 6'th form" of his madougu...Never shown to read more
