Set in the land of Yuguto, the people thought that the land they live is the size of the world, but it's actually divided into several areas, each with a respective king. Even though there were small wars among areas, the kings had roundtable meetings to maintain peace and balance. It was until a dark group of dark monsters appeared...

Okay let me say first that i really enjoyed this show so i'm obviously biased but who cares if i'm biased?

The story is simple and philosophically deep but lacking at the same time, that's probably the only weak point of this show for me. I really do wish they do more on the story department but given the source material, there really wasn't much.

The "Black King" starts with the concept that "the world will end one day". Which is true, we know everything and everyone dies. Even the Sun that can lives for billions of years will die one day. *Everything is destine to ends* read more

Chain chronicles deserves the epithet mediocre. For a show to have a decent art and characters yet have this awful story and voice acting in perfect balance is pretty extraordinary. The story basically revolves down to good vs bad and does not develop on this in any way. You are thrown into a scene what feels like mid-season and the whole thing is basically a kafuffle of story points and character backgrounds that don’t really interconnect. Unsurprising when like many other anime, it’s based on a mediocre tower defence game.

The characters despite them in the game being shitty little chibi sprites are pretty well thought read more

Mobile game adaptations are few and far in between, and they all fall into one of two categories. Either they're of average quality yet manage to garner a huge amount of popularity due to its characters (Kancolle/Love Live), or no one gives two shits about them because they're so bad no one cares (Girlfriend Kari). So, how does Chain Chronicle, the lovechild between Alim and Sega that no longer has any global servers on the west coast because fuck you westerners, fare in all of this?

Story: Alright, because the anime doesn't give any context, and various synopsis' beyond "This is an adaptation of read more

Chain Chronicle is an adaptation of a mobile game of the very same name. the mobile game has been adapted into a short ova and a movie trilogy, and that movie trilogy has now been broken down into a 12 ep anime (or maybe is what the other way around). anyway coming into this i wasn't sure how to approach it either by the movies or the tv series, so i choose the slow burner method and picked the tv series.

the beginning of the show puts you immediately in the thick of a large battle which i believe for the characters is the final grand read more
