On a continent ruled by chaos, the Lords have the power of a holy seal that can calm the chaos and protect the people. However, before anyone realizes it, the rulers cast aside their creed of purifying the chaos, and instead start to fight each other for each other's holy seals to gain dominion over one another. Shiruuka, an isolated mage who scorns the Lords for abandoning their creed, and a wandering knight named Theo, who is on a journey to train to one day liberate his hometown, make an everlasting oath to work together to reform this continent dominated by wars and chaos.
This anime is so good if you want to find a good story or animation anime, but there are some that are making this anime fall.
This story in the Anime world is quite original according to the normal mangas or animes of fantasy. As I said it has a good story line but the anime is going too fast, the episode 3 was like 7 chapters or more From the manga, that's the bad point.
(I have to say that the story is something like the games of Fire Emblems)
The art is sooooooo gooood, if you've seen Fate's series and liked its
animation, I'm sure the animation of this anime will please you. Nothing more to say.
The opening is entertaining and good (If you see or have seen the opening, please, notice that that's not an LGTB flag, is a peace flag), and the ending is quiet and very good, in terms of background music and the rest is pretty good, well, what you would expect from a world of wars and fantasy.
Why do I put 6 characters?
Well, based on the anime, what we have done so far, they have only said a few things about the past of the two protagonists and some secondary, but surely later they'll explain more characters and make them so that we can understand them well.
(I will update it if something appears in the anime)
I have put a 7 practically for the story, and the plans of the heroine to help the hero.
It is very interesting and entertaining to know what will happen next to x plan, because several things happen that you will not wait for, or the one that will happen with the characters when they lose or win.
As for to laugh, I do not think this is an anime with a lot of comedy, it has some moments, but those moments are very small.
The story is so far not a very complicated one. In a medival world where magic exist and can be seen in form of Mages and Crests that grants one the power to be able to rule over land.
Where local lords can fight each other in their alliance over territory. There are two big alliances opposing each other. The pacing is fast, but I guess it all depends on the buget and popularity of a series what can be invested for animation.
I really enjoy the art style and the animation. For bigger fights 3D models are used and fluently intigrated with "classic" drawn animation.
is nothing special, typical and fitting at most times.
As I read just the manga I was a bit dissapointet with the character development, even though it is also fast in the manga, the anime takes it to a whole other level. Everything is rushed really really fast to the point that certain events that are shown in the anime lose their impact as certain minor events where not shown at al. These are critical to understand why the villiagers have a strong bond with their lord....or who the hell the "boss" is.
As a huge fan of medival and fantasy settings ala Fire Emblem. I enjoy it the the most. I could say rather than story and Soundtrack or Character development I enjoy the world in general and how you can imagine the steps inbetween that lead to what is shown in the anime.
It is a fun anime, nothing overwhelming innovative. I do enjoy it myself, but if the genre isn't ones favorite I think one shouldn't really bother to watch it.
