Synopsis

Long ago, the king of Orvelia, Kyle, defeated the demon king Angmund and brought peace to the world. However, one hundred years later, demons have been sighted in the forests, threatening humanity once more. A scouting expedition is sent to verify the claim but only one member returns. Meanwhile, Riheet, the leader of a dark elf mercenary group, plots to take over Orvelia to exact revenge against the humans who forsook their race a century ago.

The knight apprentice Kasel, accompanied by the priestess Frey, sets out to rescue Clause, an old friend who went missing in the tragic mission. However, along the way, Kasel discovers that he is the son of the revered King Kyle and the only one who can wield the Holy Sword Aea—the same sword that slew the demon king. To fulfill this destiny, the young knight must embark on a perilous quest, unseal the sword, and end the fear instilled by demons. As Kasel's journey to bring hope to humanity and Riheet's vow for vengeance intertwine, what fate could possibly await them?

At this point, I think only a few of us actually got through all 26 episodes of King’s Raid. I for one, don’t regret a single moment of it.

Yes, King’s Raid is a pretty generic fantasy gacha game adaptation that does absolutely nothing game changing or innovative. Yes, there’s plenty of better shows out there. No, that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. In fact, I loved King’s Raid. It is a slow burn over the 2-cours span that it runs, but once it gets going, I found it to be very entertaining. For context, when I watch anime, I usually multi-task by farming read more

Ah...King's Raid, one of the most popular indie mobage games in South Korea, such a good game that's amassed with the huge popularity in its home country. The anime version which features a different story from the game's plot, frankly, I can sum in one word: TRASH.

As with every other game adaptation, it's nothing more than the marketing ploy of tactics to get people to play the original game, and that by every aspect, has succeeded one way or another without going into the specifics of numbers. But the way that King's Raid was planned with the anime adaptation, I have no idea what the read more

Recommendation: You can probably skip this one unless you're desperate for a new fantasy series to watch. It's not that it's bad exactly, more that it's inessential, and everything that's good about it is done better by other shows.

King's Raid is a series that is basically fine, but is absolutely crying out for something to make it unique. If you can imagine a completely generic and predictable fantasy anime in your head, this is basically that series. The main plot has basically two tracks, and the main one is as straightforward as it gets. Kasel is searching for the Holy Sword read more

King's Raid is a show that starts off very much like your typical Game story adaptation that's as RPG as it can get. You have a hero with brown hair who is special in some way that makes him chosen for the role of saving the world.

If I were playing a game, this might be a fine role. However, this is an anime.

The show actually has a decent story to tell and a good amount of worldbuilding of the history and events leading up to the start of the plot. However, it's biggest problem is that its writers chose probably the most boring point of read more
