A violent rebellion in the capital led by Duke Rugis Camellia wreaks havoc on the Kingdom of Hortensia, leaving every member of the royalty either dead or missing. Barely escaping with his life, knight Maurice Baudelaire flees the ensuing chaos after his brother, Fernando Albert, is killed by a werewolf in battle.

To honor his legacy, Maurice treks to Albert's house and delivers his son, Alfred Ober, his father's sword. Despite his grief, Alfred is reminded of a vow he pledged with his father—to become a knight so that he could protect his land, the Albert Dominion.

Under Maurice's tutelage, Alfred hones his combat skills to fulfill his promise. Training alongside him is Marius Casterede, an intriguing boy whose age seems to be more than meets the eye. Elsewhere, Pope Alexi Valdebron delivers the order to capture the missing princess and crowns Charlot D'Hortensia as the new king. Hortensia Saga is a tale of camaraderie and determination as Alfred, Marius, and Maurice work together with friends of past and present to bring forth light amidst Hortensia's dark times.

What does an anime need to be interesting? Well, for some, it is enough to have a universe, characters and a story well combined to work. Animes that are adaptations of games are already expected the minimum of all this, because, because it is something that comes from an interactive material, it is necessary to keep the target audience, right? Hortensia Saga, no matter how hard he tried, managed to be the biggest failure of game adaptations in recent times.

I don't say Hortensia Saga's instruction is bad. In fact, it was surprisingly good to start. Marius is a runaway princess who, after an attack by read more

Hortensia Saga is an odd one. On one hand, it’s yet another generic fantasy gacha adaptation. On the other, it was actually quite enjoyable for me.

I’ll be quick and brief with this one, everyone knows I am easy to please with anime. Story doesn’t have to be top notch or revolutionary, I like good character interactions and waifus. Hortensia has neither. The plot does nothing to actually draw you in and interest you. The characters are all shallow and have no real depth to them, other than the main antagonist whose motivations are still rather generic.

Despite the complaints, I actually did find the read more

Just when you think that game adaptations like these will reach the above-average latency of Granblue Fantasy, it just fell short of its ambition to remit the exact same feelings of such.

For a context, I actually used to play a decent amount of Hortensia Saga, the 2015 mobage developed by f4Samurai and Sega. As is the case for such tactical RPGs of the genre, the story really is nothing special of the realms of claiming kingdomship and defeating evil, pretty bog-standard stuff. Granted, Cygames' mobage Granblue Fantasy launched the year prior in 2014, but to the average Joe, the feeling is mutual. Fast forward to read more

The truth from minute 1 seemed like it was going to be bad, but I'm wrong, it's terrible. I spent my time watching this which cannot be called anime because it is a real rubbish. If you're thinking of seeing this do yourself a favor and don't watch it, it's going to give you cancer. Don't see it.

La verdad desde el minuto 1 parecía que iba a ser malo pero me equivoque es malísimo. Gaste mi tiempo viendo esto que no se puede llamar anime porque es una verdadera basura. Si estas pensando ver esto hacerte un favor y no lo veas, te va read more
