Synopsis

The Celestial Records speak of the existence of the "Seraphim," a race of divine beings who give blessings to humanity and are offered prayers by them in return. Those who are anointed with the ability to interact with these spirits are known as "Shepherds." Hailed as heroes for their prompt appearances in times of crisis, while also being feared for their power, the Shepherds are imprinted in common folklore along with the Seraphim.

Sorey is a young human who has spent his entire life living in harmony alongside the Seraphim in the village of Elysia. Fascinated by the myths of the Celestial Records, he explores some nearby ruins with Mikleo—his childhood Seraphim companion—hoping to enlighten himself about the Seraphims' history with mankind.

Unfortunately, they become trapped in the depths of the historical site during their investigation. While searching for an exit, they come across a mysterious girl who desperately seeks the help of a Shepherd to save the world, which is on the brink of being consumed by darkness. Despite Mikleo's warning about making contact with other humans, Sorey decides to help the stranger, which unknowingly leads him closer to the dream of peaceful coexistence between man and Seraphim.

P.S. I'm not very good at reviews, nor am I very technical when I am reviewing. This is based entirely on my own personal opinion.

Tales of Zestiria the Cross, a video game adaptation that doesn't quite nail what is needed to being a good anime.


Animation / Art / General Visuals - 9/10
-----------------------------------------------

If there's a high point for the show, it's the high production values. Ufotable is known for their high quality art and animations, and this show is no different. The show looks beautiful. The action scenes flashy. Though it is a little dragged down by sub-par build ups and resolutions. Though I'll put that on the weak videogame foundation.


Sound / Music / Voice Acting - 9/10

Heres one of the shortest reviews you’ll read, I wanna make it easy for you to understand.

The whole entire plot line made no sense and I was completely lost. Especially when they tried to tell me about the powers and stuff? Yeah I caught none of that. You’ve gotta be smart to seriously understand what the heck they actually said

Overall enjoyment- 4

Hoped this helped <3 (9/10 chance it didn’t)


The only good thing that I understood is that there are hotties :) Now to be honest, I haven’t watched this show or even finished it for at least a year so my memory of it ...
