Synopsis

Once upon a time, there was a tragic war, in which the power of the devils was involved. After the war, the devils' power was banned and the world was restored to peace. Cecily Campbell is a knight, who has been looking for a blacksmith to repair her old sword given by her father. One day, she saw a man fighting with a ruffian who used the tabooed devil's power. The man defeated him with one blow of his weirdly shaped sword. The man turned out to be a blacksmith called Luke. The fateful encounter was the beginning of the adventure.

What it's really about:
A big-chested clumsy knight gets involved with a demon problem, as well as handsome blacksmith and his mysterious past.

The Good:
- Excellent production value
- The relationship between the blacksmith and the knight is cute
- The episodes that don't directly further the plot are still very interesting
- The setting has an intriguing history

The Bad:
- The knight can be viewed by many as "annoying."
- Those expecting a Lord of the Rings experience will be sorely disappointed.

Conclusion:
I think the reason this anime got so many below average reviews is because of the reviewers' preconceptions of what the anime should have been. If you can manage read more

I find this anime pretty interesting, it's rare to find animes where the main protagonist is not almost an "all-mighty-god" who kicks everyone's butt in less than a second, this makes the anime more interesting to me due to the fact that I want to see that character's progression.

This is a very laughably bad show. Probably the most enjoyment I get from this show is pointing out everything that is just outright terrible about it. The production looks alright, with decent enough music, sounds, and artwork, but after that the quality of everything else goes down the drain.

For starters, the main character is simply awful. Cecily Campbell is perhaps one of the weakest protagonists I have ever seen in anime. She's clumsy and useless at doing anything without the help of other characters, and largely demonstrates very weak initiative throughout series as up til now.

The show largely focuses on sex read more

The Sacred Blacksmith is a really mixed bag. This could have been good, with the underlying story being highly interesting. The whole excecution of the story is unfortunately, horrific.

The flaws in the storyline mainly lie with the protagonist. Cecily as the main lead has shown growth but this is unfortunately obscured by her annoying personality. The way her "talk" sequences were done was extremely off-putting, and her jarring voice made things even worse. This links to the lack of a logical flow to the storyline whenever it involves Cecily. One evening, she's in a life-threatening battle, the next day read more
