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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

Whatever "fighting" they have ...
