Before starting my review, I want to say that in my opinion, the high score of this show is not representative of its actual reception in the Western anime community. This can be verified to some extent by comparing S1's amount of MAL ratings (~100k) with that of S2 (~50k). Make of this information what you will.

Having said that, I will now analyze the different aspects of "Tales of Zestiria the X" as a whole:

Story: 3/10
Tales of Zestiria’s main issue is that it came out in 2016. For anybody who has experienced a decent amount of fantasy stories, the whole premise of "a crew with read more

It may sound dull but i enjoyed it because it gives me some enjoyment even though is long and boring and actually killed some time for me to enjoy, even though the story is not really a well written one, the story overall surprised me a bit as it is way interesting than i thought originally, it may have some difference from the game but its normal to me to see this change

Ufotable back at it again with yet another beautifully finished animation that actually gave me interest to the characters and the place

It retains the OST from the game but the OST is not read more

Out of all of the games in the 'Tales of-' series, many people were skeptical at Ufotable's choice at adapting Zestiria, which was understandable given how it had one of the weakest stories in the entire series. And honestly, the skepticism backed itself up very well given the final product.

Story: Continuing with its previous season, Tales of Zestiria brings us back to the world plagued by malevolence where we follow our main protagonist, Sorey, as he fully realizes his power as the Shepherd in order to save the world from humanity's own faults and wrongdoings. At least...that's what I think the show's about? read more

To clear things up, this is a review of Seasons 1 & 2, or better put "Tales of Zestiria the X" as a whole.
This review will not follow a typical format, I think everyone already knows that the art is great and that the sound is probably great too. As such I'll focus on everything wrong with the show.

So lets start by getting this out of the way:

Art: 9/10 , it's ufotable, I gave Fate/Zero a 10 and rated Garden of Sinners equally as high. Zestiria is still up to scratch, or though at times quality fluctuates slightly and just doesn't meet previous standards set read more
