This anime goes beyond confusing and let's see why:

Story - 2
No matter how much you try to understand the story, you just can't keep up with what's happening at the time, because the continuity of this anime is just the worst. Despising the fact that the main theme of the story is a cliche hero story, they keep jumping from scene to scene in an order that makes you really confused and you end up not knowing what the hell is going on in there.

Art - 6
The art is not the worst, in fact, it is good, which makes it sad, to waste an read more

O pior anime da temporada pelo menos por agora.

A historia é uma das mais genéricas que eu já vi na vida, é a tipica historia de "os protagonista deve selar algo e salvar o mundo", resumindo uma historia datada, clichê e sem graça nenhuma.

A arte em si é OK, mas a animação... é simplesmente sofrível (possivelmente eu cometi um erro de português aqui).

Cheia de bugs e tela estática, personagens que só movem a boca entre outros motivos que dão a arte desse anime uma nota 3 de pobre

O único ponto aceitável desse anime, Nenhuma das musicas é ruim, sendo apenas esquecíveis e genéricas, a OP read more

Well hakyuu houshin engi what a clusterf*ck of emotions this is.I still wonder why im watching it.

the story:
Coeherent storytelling? pfft who needs that, all you need is a bunch of cool looking locales and scenery to tell a story.Seriously the passing of this anime is horrendous, if you advert your eyes for mere seconds you lose any track of where you were since this anime just likes to skip around in places to deviate your attention from the unholy characters this show pretains, introducing new characters basically every episode only to be done with them by the end of such, voiding them of any further read more

My favorite manga of all time adapted into a new anime- you can imagine my excitement!
The manga is 23 volumes long- that's too long to effectively consolidate into 23 episodes, and unfortunately it shows. However, Houshin Engi is such a brilliant story with compelling, love able characters and a deep philosophical message.
No, there is no cheesy love story and the world is so complex and in depth that it takes a while to understand everything, believe me, it's worth it. The manga blew my mind and took over my life for a few months.

I recommend the manga more than anything but the anime isn't read more
