I love the Houshin Engi manga, so when I saw it was going to receive another anime, I was hopeful this one would cover the whole story and do a decent job on its adaptation. Sadly, I was wrong. The first episode already shows, for the worse, big differences between the two. The story is badly told, you can't understand much if you don't know it already.

I still recommend the manga, but this anime shouldn't exist.
Ah, the opening song is good, at least.

The characters are probably the weakest link, with all of them fulfilling roles in which they stay within a certain margin. The hero is a hero, the villain is diabolical - so on and so forth. I feel this approach is ok though, because (imo) read more
