Seth is an aspiring sorcerer from the Pompo Hills area. Like all wizards, he is an "infected," one of the few living beings who survived the contact of the Nemesis—creatures fallen from the sky that contaminate and decimate all those they touch. Being immune to them, Seth wants to become a Hunter and fight the Nemesis. But more than that, Seth wants to engage in a quest that goes beyond the simple hunt for monsters. He wants to find the Radiant, their presumed cradle. Aided by a faction of fellow sorcerers, he travels the world in search of the Radiant, under the harsh scrutiny of the Inquisition.

Oh no, Radiant isn’t a perfect adaptation! What has the world come to?!

We get it. This isn’t one of those anime that will meet our expectations by adaptation standards. From the beginning, I’ve heard of comments about how the anime changed the tone of the story and even the way the main protagonist has been adapted into it. For the sake of this review, it will be based from an anime viewer’s perspective. I’m not going to go into the French series to look and compare every episode to see what was wrong with it.

Now with that mushy stuff out of the way, you may read more

In this season nothing for the most part happens. We have two real arcs and that's about it. However it is still something worth watching.

The whole premise of the show is for Seth to find Radiant to destroy it and save the world. Sounds fun let's go and save the world, but why. One thing I like about this anime is how they deal with the discrimination against sorcerers. In the arc were the go to Rumble Town Seth is forced to really understand what he is trying to do and who is he trying to save. I very much like this because even read more

Radiant is the spiritual successor to Black Clover. I say this because the same strengths/issues I have with that series are present here.

Story (5/10):

The story is about a cursed boy named Seth who becomes a sorcerer and goes out on a quest to find Radiant in order to defeat the Nemesis which inhabit this world. It’s pretty much your typical shounen premise where Seth yells he’s going to find Radiant and become the Wizard King/Hokage!

You know how important first impressions are? Well the first 10 episodes leave a lot to be desired considering they’re more or less filler content. Radiant only starts to get read more
