Ires and his father, Leglight are peddlers. Near Gramnoa,they met a genius "tempest", Yuan. Yuan thinks they are bandits, and began to fight. Leglight wields his mystic weapon, and beats him back. However, right after that, he is swallowed into black light leaving the weapon, a "device", and a message, “Visit Oldman in Gramnoa”. To look for his father, he leaves for Gramnoa.
So, what do we have?
Well, it starts out with a narrator introducing to us the world where the story is about to take place.
And then we see a someone finding a wounded boy...and again the narrator explaining that years passes and that Ires and Ledlight (the two characters we saw before...but seriously, how are we supposed to know it since no one introduced them to us. To me they were just random characters 1 and 2)...did nothing interesting during some years, and then there's a fight with...heck, I don't care any more!
The battle ends just like it begun, leaving us completely clueless...and the narrator starts speaking again...and again...and again.
Man, why don't you shut up, no one is watching anyway!
Basically, this OVA is just a patchwork of scenes that you don't understand, linked between them by a sloppy narrator, and showing characters which names you don't even know! Great!
And actually this whole OVA seems to be the summary of a video game!
Well, I don't get it: why would you want to create that?
You can't promote the video game with it: it just spoils the entire story, and when you finish it, you will more likely puke on yourself than buy the game.
This anime should not exist.
Seriously, don't watch it, even if there's a gun aimed to your head, just don't watch it! (I wish I could go back to before I randomly downloaded and watched this...) read more
Well, this is a weird one. I've never played any of the Rebirth games that this OVA was based on, so taken out of context, none of these scenes make much sense to me.
The story is presented in a really haphazard manner. Each scene is broken up by a narrator accompanied by a screen full of text, making them all seem disconnected from each other. This also makes the story difficult to follow, and it seems more like a collection of animated cutscenes that could have probably been in the game.
The audio is well done, but didn't blow me away, voice actors deliver their lines fine, and sound effects sound good enough. The soundtrack didn't stand out, though.
The animation is pretty nice to look at, which is a plus. However, that's not enough to make this anime any good.read more
