In the 16th century, the city of Florence booms with cultural and creative revival in celebration of the Renaissance. Arte, a delightful young lady from an aristocratic family, dreams of being an artist and contributing to the renewal of civilization. However, with her father's death, she ends up losing the only person who believed in her passion for art. Now she is expected to marry a nobleman and live as a refined housewife without disgracing her family name. Reluctant to accept her fate, the headstrong Arte steps into the streets in search of a master artisan to take her on as an apprentice.

In her quest for a mentor, Arte has to face harsh reality when she is completely shunned for being a female artist. No one believes that women are capable of fine craftsmanship, and therefore none are willing to accept her. Luckily, a renowned artisan by the name of Leo is persuaded to take her as his disciple since he has none anyway. And thus, Arte's new life begins, far from the comfort of her noble upbringing. As an apprentice, she must earn her keep while tackling various challenges along the difficult path to becoming a full-fledged, master artisan.

Although I am someone who can like almost any show regardless of the genre as long as the show's itself is good, there are five genres that I prefer more: Drama, Fantasy, Historical, School and Thriller. And when it comes to Historical, I have an extra interest in Italy (especially Venezia) and 20th century Europe. Because of these when I saw Arte's PV for the first time, I get excited too much, but unfortunately this great excitement of mine ended with a great disappointment.

In a Nutshell
Based on the manga by Kei Ohkubo, Arte feels like a shoujo story. 16th century Florence, Italy. Arte is a noblewoman, who dreams of becoming an artist. While it is an impossible career choice for a female born in a noble family, she is even ready to give up on her status only to become an artist. Will her whole-life-dream translate into reality?

Arte is an anime adaptation of the manga based on the era of The Renaissance from the 16th century. It’s not often you get to hear such a premise spelled out so freshly intact about in this era. Arte is not only the titular protagonist but also a woman with a strong will, determination, and thirst to prove herself as an artist. She is here to prove that in a male dominant world, there’s a place for her.

The premise is quite simple. It’s about this 14 year old heiress from Florence who has a passion for painting. After her father passes away, she’s been put read more

Good god where to begin with this flaming pile of garbage otherwise known as Arte? Once in a rare while do you come across something so pointlessly dull and boring that you actually get offended by it, so offended by its poor writing, poor characters, poor shallow attempts at making "commentary", poor genre workings. Everything about this show is poor. After 4 episodes I had a bad feeling, after 7 I had no hope, and now? Now, I'm here to tell you to not bother wasting your time on this trash.

Before we get into the slaughter of Arte I'd like to point out some read more
