Forty-four years ago, the surviving nations of the Valbanil War declared peace and forbade the use of the devastating demon contracts that ravaged the land. Now, inexperienced knight Cecily Cambell is eager to follow the example of her family and protect the people of the city using the sword she inherited from her father.

Her first challenge arises in the market. A crazed swordsman wreaks havoc upon civilians and Cecily jumps into action to restore order. Overwhelmed, her weapon shatters, but a skilled stranger wielding a strange-looking sword intervenes. With the situation diffused, Cecily heads to a local blacksmith in an effort to restore her family heirloom. However, she finds out that her savior—the blacksmith Luke Ainsworth—may be the only person capable of such intricate repairs. Determined to have her treasured sword repaired, she seeks out the man who rescued her.

However, a group of bandits suddenly attack a convoy headed for the city. The assailants look inhuman, and an ice demon appears. Luke suspects the use of a demon contract and calls upon a sacred power to defeat them. Meanwhile, a shadowy hooded figure lurks, watching from a distance. Who is this mysterious evildoer, and what does his appearance mean for the pair?

This is pretty meh, not gonna lie. I was debating a 6 or a 7, but I decided a 7 because of some of the characters. The story itself is fairly generic, a clumsy, weak knight who needs someone to save her all the time. The main character, Cecily (don't worry she says who she is like before every fight I probably will never forget her name) grew on me at times. She started off annoyingly weak, but got stronger (?) (sometimes). She tended to kind of be in everyone's business, but she did it with good intentions, and I respect that. She has an ...

Um...uh? I suppose that I can give it credit for being 13 years old at this point. Battles kind of draw out and the lead is transformed way too fast at the end. There was no growth. She spent more time not doing then she was doing. Typical incompetent female lead, weak woman "in a man's place"on concept. Men certainly still show the power, although you have to consider the time it was shot for. On the whole, there's still a total lack of proper transformation. Visuals are so so and almost every character is easily forgettable. I think the side characters alone are enough ...

“The Sacred Blacksmith” is what happens when You create something that should be mentioned in the Britannica Dictionary under “subpar”.

If there ever was an anime that has little to no originality, uses cheat tricks to force an emotional reaction in a viewer and has barely any logical sense plot wise… this is it.

Apart from very few exceptions we witness the plot from the perspective of Cecily Cambell - a young, a bit naive, idealistic and energetic knight. Despite having the heart to protect people of the city she lacks the skills and mental fortitude (at least in the beginning) to make difficult decisions. After losing ...
