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

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.

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
