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.

I must say, the concept of an anime using a wuxia context really intrigued me. But in the end, it was yes and no everything that I could expect. The very bad news is, it’s about 90% of your typical shounen anime. Such characterizations and development is present, but it’s already stuff you’ve seen before in typical shounen anime. The good news is, it’s in a completely different context and it makes those qualities feel fresher. But what I personally was expecting was a balanced mixed of the qualities of anime and wuxia. Taitou is your typical big hearted and small-brained overly righteous teenage hero read more

Review: Hero Tales
Could have been good, but turned out bad. It had potential, but it was wasted unfortunately.

Started off with a good idea/plot.
~but then turned it into something completely stupid with out of proportion power and not much logical understanding or explanation behind the back-story and background of the story.
(Ex. Karma of the stars) (Ex. over exaggerated read more

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 read more

There were so many negative reviews I felt compelled to leave a positive one because I actually quite liked it.

The anime itself I feel isn't as bad as others are making it out to be. I feel the reason it leaves a bad taste in people's mouth is because they try to over complicate things.

The story is a straight forward good vs evil fantasy set in a fictional ancient empire. It's the classic save the world from an overpowered evil power hell bent on wreaking havoc. The plot is somewhat predictable and the characters lack depth but that isn't necessarily a bad thing for an read more
