Synopsis

Freed from the rule of samurai 150 years ago, the people of Hinomoto live peaceful lives and revere their liberators—demons whose true forms remain elusive—as gods. Fated to mine rocks for the demons to feast on, Musashi knows the grim truth: humanity is enslaved by these otherworldly beings and the samurai are the last bastion fighting for freedom. Hiding his true opinion from his peers and growing distant from his childhood friend Kojirou Kanemaki, Musashi lives in angst until the day of his graduation.

When the fresh graduates arrive at the mine, they are horrified to see the inhumane treatment of miners and the uncanny physical appearance of their overseers. However, Musashi manages to endure thanks to Kojirou's help. As the demon leader wreaks havoc on the quarry, Musashi is saved once more from certain death by the Takeda samurai clan. Recovering from humiliation and yearning for adventure, Musashi embarks on a journey to become a samurai and form his own clan!

If I have to sum Orient in one sentence, it would be this: A prolific mangaka's fall from grace, and what worse than karma to make a horrible adaptation out of it.

If you have absolutely no idea who mangaka Shinobu Ohtaka is, go do yourself a service to read and watch Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic series. For anyone whom has even heard and/or seen Magi (yours truly included), most of them would consider the series to be the her crème de la crème, pièce de résistance of a work, and to think that it has been almost 10 years (as of this review) with ...

It was 8,98 for me with my own aspects of review.

Story; 9,12
At first I thought this anime was quite unclear because it seemed that many plot holes were left behind, including the power system that people often talk about. But in my opinion, the execution of the last few episodes managed to change things, from Plot Hole to Cliffhanger which will keep you glued to see what happens next, and I think this is a good thing.

Characterization; 8,97
The MC attitude that not everyone thinks about, but worth it and manages to make a good first impression. Finally came the MC whose problem was not whether ...

Once upon a time, we were graced by the mind of Shinobu Ohtaka. She introduced us to the world of Magi, a fantasy adventure filled with mystery, personality, and of course magic. Flashforward several years later and here we are with her new work, Orient. It's another fantasy adventure taking place in a historical period.

Even if you're not familiar with the author's works, Orient should hit no different for its elements of fantasy and adventure. We are dropped into a world where the lands is ruled by supernatural demons, known more commonly as Oni. Soon, we meet Musashi, a young boy who vows to ...
