For citizens of the Ken Empire, justice is a myth. Lord Keiro, the deranged Shogun of the Imperial Army, blazes a trail of terror across the countryside in search of the sacred sword that will make him a god. Standing in his way is Taito, an omnipotent star reborn in human form—a young hero who vows to use his celestial strength to avenge those slaughtered by the villainous Shogun.

Taito's mystical powers steer him toward a violent showdown with Keiro, and if used recklessly, his newfound abilities could shred the very fabric of his being. To master the art of control and become a heroic martial artist, Taito must seek the guidance of others like him: the seven star-born warriors with the strength to shatter a corrupt empire.

Taitou is your typical big hearted and small-brained overly righteous teenage hero ...

Mixed Feelings
The storyline of Hero Tales isn't really anything special. A used-to-be nobody kid named Taitou finds out that he's actually the incarnation of a star. When he gets too angry he gets out of control and only his sister can stop him from destroying himself. I don't really want to explain it here I'm too lazy but I'll just say it disappointed me coming from Hiromu.

Taitou gets really obnoxious around the middle of the series and is so whiny it made me want to stop watching. I almost did stop but I had to keep watching to see if it got better. It did for ...

Review: Hero Tales
