First of all things do not get fooled by the low score that this show has on mal, it should be over 8. Second don't believe those rumors about this show being bland or boring I assure that's not the case at all, this anime is great from the first minute of episode one and filled with great stuff until the end. Finally read what i wrote in this review if you are planning to watch this show and you are hesitant about some stuff.

Shoukoku no Altair is a historical fiction centered around the young Mahmut Tuğrul as he struggles with his desires for peace while simultaneously having to get himself deeper in the war that is raging between the two major powers of the Türkiye Stratocracy and the Balt-Rhein Empire.

I’m a sucker for historical-based fantasy, so Altair should’ve been the highlight of the year - but it ended up falling flat. While it did some interesting things, it ran into speed bumps that shows why anime rarely attempts epic scale fantasy stories.

The political in Altair interplay is on a level most anime don’t come near touching. The countries all feel unique and like a good deal of thought went behind their creation. The leaders and military commanders have refreshingly realistic stances that usually make sense and don’t feel like they were contrived to create drama or follow an oversimplified black/white, good/evil paradigm. However, read more
