He awakens in the dark forest of a mythical land with some type of leopard mask that he cannot remove. The only thing he remembers is his name—Guin—and that he is a warrior of unimaginable power. And when the two twins of Parros, innocent victims of a civil war arrive, Guin knows what he must do.

But the journey to save the children means much more than just slaughtering a few hundred well-trained Mongoul soldiers. Victory means he must battle magical desert tribes, assemble forces that have fought each other for hundreds of hears, and divine a mysterious plan that he is central to.

Prepare for a sweeping anime epic of mystery and magic! Of violent clashes and dark double-crosses. Ready yourself for the battle with Guin Saga.

This review is dedicated to Imaoka Sumiyo, better known as Kurimoto Kaoru, the author of Guin Saga, who passed away in May 2009. Few can come close to matching what you have achieved as a writer and author.

As a fan of science fiction and fantasy, I'm always on the lookout for enjoyable stories, and this is one of the reasons why I'm such a fan of anime. Imagine my surprise then, when I learned that a series that I've only ever managed to read parts of (and small sections they were too), and that I have tried on numerous occasions to find in English, was ...

Amazing Story. Amazing Characters. But the voices make me cringe. Don't rewatch it. If you've never watched it, It's worth giving a try. I watched it a while back and I liked it so I decided to rewatch it I started watching the first episode after 5 minutes of the horrible voices I couldn't stand it. If you decide to watch it I suggest watching subbed not dubbed. A problem with the story is that it's mainly violence and boring stuff but there are several episodes that I loved I don't want to get into details or I'll spoil it for you. The show is ...

Well my first review, so bare with me. I decided to write this review because all of the other reviews for this series are positive ones, but this is really a mediocre show at least it turned out to be. This review is for people who have not seen it yet and are thinking giving it a chance.

This is a pathetic show, with very minimal enjoyment and even less value. It started pretty good. It was a tail of adventure of Guin, a mysterious warrior and his search for his identity (yes, amnesia). The first part of the series is the presentation of the characters ...

Ten English Dubbed Anime So Terrible You Can Never Unhear Them

Ten English Dubbed Anime So Terrible You Can Never Unhear Them

In the argument of subs vs dubs, everyone is entitled to their own opinion (even if you are a filthy dub-loving anime fan). Hopefully these are ten English dubbed anime that we can all agree are horrible - no matter what your persuasion.
