In order to prevent the catastrophe called the Grand Fall, Rid Hershel and his companions Farah, Keel and Meredy have obtained the three Greater Spirits ("Craymels" in the game version) of Inferia. En route to Mount Farlos, Rid is kidnapped by the bounty hunter Marone Blucarno, and the party is compelled to head to Belcarnu, an archipelago far from the major cities of Inferia. A series of adventures forces them to remain on the islands, where a more immediate threat to Inferia sleeps.

Most people would watch something titled "Tales of" because of the famous video game franchise by Namco. Others randomly come across unique titles such as these. While the video game Tales of Eternia for the Playstation was great, and sold wildly throughout Japan, the anime based off of it is most certainly not.

The plot isn't even based off the game, but just has the group of four: Rid, Farah, Meredy, and Keel residing in a town. The story actually starts off while they're ON their journey, basically like a filler. It has nothing to do with the actual story of the game.

Tales of Eternia revolves around the island of Belcarnu, a peaceful and prosperous island nation. The lives of our heroes would be in danger because of a secret organization aiming to destroy Inferia.

What makes this series disappointing was the fact that they could have the whole plot in a single one-our-thirty-minute movie. Instead, they just had to stretch it into thirteen episodes.

The anime had its saving graces, too. The characters have stuck to their original personalities and the animation is very clear as well.

Tales of Eternia is a good watch for all.

This is not a masterwork of anime by far, but it is a fair anime. The show is short, sweet and the most enjoyable part is seeing the game characters more alive.

I am a huge fan of tales of eternia for Playstation and i only wished the game was longer once i beat it then i found out they made this anime. Tho the two are unrelated and this is more like a side story to the game, i still just liked seeing the characters so animated. The animations from the game were always to short so i never got a real feel for how read more

I started watching this after absolutely loving the Tales of the Abyss anime and, frankly, it started out alright. It was pretty unfortunate, though, that a certain character was useless enough to ruin the entire show for me and I couldn't actually get through it.

I'd recommend this anime if you can get past Farah, the most useless and hypocritical character to ever exist. No, seriously. At least the first five episodes are composed largely of her yelling at other characters for being lazy / not doing what they're supposed to / failing in general and shortly followed by her getting into a situation in which read more
