Synopsis

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.

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

*WIN
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.

I've been on a streak of positive reviews recently, so to shake things up and prove I still know how to criticize where criticism is due, here are my thoughts on a show so bland I dropped it TWICE.

-Story-

'Hero Tales' is as generic as the name would have you believe. Setting a story in medieval China (or a fantasy look-alike) is as common in East Asian media as setting a Western fantasy in medieval Europe. The basic plot isn't any more original, following seven warriors who are each the reincarnation of various warrior deities, with two (conveniently our protagonist and antagonist) being well-known as the read more

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

This is one of the best plotted bad animes I have seen.

I started watching the show and continued warching because I enjoyed the story and plot in the beginning, and only continued to watch it to see how it developed. Then I noticed a pattern. The main character is actually weak, none intelligent, and weak willed.

I may see it different from others, but it makes no sense that when the main character in hislose control mode still loses. It tries to seem like he has friends that support him but in reality all they do is verbally attack him with no reasoning or read more
