Synopsis

In the year 54 AD, 15-year-old slave fighter Cestvs desires one thing—an escape from his violent life. It is the wish Cestvs' owner has promised to grant him, but only after he wins 100 battles. However, Cestvs quickly comes to terms with the fact that, as a slave, his life is expendable. After the death of his friend, the possibility of freedom is the only thing keeping him going. With a burning ambition to attain it, Cestvs embarks on a journey to earn himself back, even if it means fighting other slaves for the entertainment of the public.

I really liked this anime. The 3d was jarring at first and made me nauseous, but then I got used to it and even liked it because it made the fights and bodies very detailed. Compared to other fighting anime, the fights are realistic and the ones in the second half are thrilling, I was tensed up like it was an action movie. I might have to read the manga because there was a large time jump and I bet there is fun character development that happens.

The characters do have more flat personalities. This did not bother me too much, because it was mostly ...

Mixed Feelings
Cestvs has been an interesting experience for me. I never read the manga and went into this with absolutely no expectations whatsoever. Perhaps it was because of my low expectations, but I actually quite enjoyed this show.

The story is pretty average. The world building is minimal and the story often jumps around the place. As an example, the first scene of the anime only shows up again at the end of the 4th episode. This was supposed to be a smart hook then a slow build up to an interesting reveal. However those of us who were watching this as it came out had ...

Hey everyone! And welcome to “Garbage of the Season [2]!” The series where I discuss the current season's trashy pile of unwatchable monstrosities so that mom can’t say I’m doing nothing with my life.

Today’s garbage is the ever popular Cestvs: The Roman Fighter or as I like to call it, a tragic misfortune. For the premise wasn’t actual dogshit, there was a ...
