From her hometown to her daily life on Kurken Island, everything surrounding Reisalin "Ryza" Stout is painfully ordinary. Despite being the daughter of a hardworking farmer, she would rather go on pretend adventures as she explores almost every corner of the island. However, the fact that it is against the local customs to venture off Kurken Island irritates her to no end.

One day, wishing for something interesting to finally happen in her life, Ryza escapes on a boat with her two good friends: the bookworm Tao Mongarten and the aspiring warrior Lent Marslink. Arriving at a nearby forest, the trio stumbles into Klaudia Valentz, the daughter of a visiting merchant who also wandered off into the woods.

As the naive and underprepared group ventures further, they run into dangerous monsters. Thankfully, they are rescued by the alchemist Empel Vollmer and his skilled bodyguard Lila Decyrus. This fateful encounter will lead Ryza to the key that will change her life forever—the creative and wonderful world of alchemy.

Let’s be real, you’re probably here because of Ryza’s thighs. I know I was. But, I stayed because Atelier Ryza is a genuinely fun and cute watch that properly captures the essence of a JRPG in a way few other anime adaptations have.

Japanese Role Playing Games can be hard to transfer to the animated medium. They usually consist of a lot of side quests and character dynamic/bonding moments that really help you connect with the characters and immerse yourself in the world. Most adaptations skip that, instead opting for the big action scenes and set pieces to get you to go out and buy the ...

Mixed Feelings
The feeling of adventuristic fantasy: alchemy, mystery...and thighs, unapologetically THICC, everywhere.

Ask yourself this question: When was the last time that anime had rather good adaptations of video games? And no, I do not mean mobage games like Princess Connect or Uma Musume, I mean, ACTUAL video games like Danganronpa or even the Persona series. The general answer is going to be the majority option, though the lesser will appreciate them quite a fair bit. This then, brings us to the Gust Corporation's Atelier series, specifically Ryza no Atelier: Tokoyami no Joou to Himitsu no Kakurega a.k.a Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout.

Interestingly enough, ...

Out of any JRPG franchise in this generation, the Atelier series has been a bit of a niche title aimed at specific audiences. Despite this, the Atelier Ryza trilogy became one of the most successful collection of games in their franchise history. And no doubt, this anime adaptation was not a matter of if but when. Yet, the anime wore its magic off quickly when we realize it's just a very loose adaptation, one that tries to appeal to the audience, but struggles every step along the way.

First, I want to get the big question out of the way. Do you need to play the ...
