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...

I'm a fan of the mobile game, and still play the Japanese version after Scumi shut down the English server. The story in-game was more generic and unmemorable.

But this movie was different. The story takes a different route where the Hero doesn't defeat the Dark Overlord and instead gets cancer and PTSD. It was an interesting and darker twist; and definitely has more potential than the story that the game had. The animation was stellar.

It's no surprise the anime had an overload of characters, but the designs of them all were great. Most side characters have one or two quirks, but the main ones read more

This review will contain spoilers. You have been warned.

Chain Chronicles was a game before it was adapted into anime/movie format. I have not played the game, so I have no past connection nor nostalgia with it. Every bit of this review is based on the anime.

Story: 6/10

The story began with a twist; the hero, Yuri, lost against the Black King in the Imperial Capital.

Medieval adventure is one of my favorite genres of anime. Not just anime, actually; also movies, books, etc... So, Chain Chronicle was very fun to watch because of it, but it has some problems that kind of messed up my immersion in the world that's presented.

The main problem was the story. It's about a group of people that, in order to restore peace and save the world, go fight a dark army that has taken command of the world. Even though it's ordinary, it ain't bad. The main problem there is the story telling. It's like if the story begins in the half of it read more
