This is a god damned perfect job of bringing old school HnK back into the early age of 3D repurposing of older franchises. Some may hate it for being a shitty 6 minute long 3D video. If you can't get past that, Legend of Heroes isn't for you. It's for the HnK diehards who loved the original series down to its core. All that bad animation is redone perfectly in 3D. It's everything you would expect and hope a bad 3D short straight out of the 80's when HnK hype was at its peak. I personally think the presentation couldn't be better. It knows it
doesn't need to be longer than it should be. It's just one badass fight sequence straight out of classic HnK with all the spirit that made it great. The fact that you get to see everything happen in bad 3D is what makes is beautiful. This is just one scene of classic HnK badassery that would have you standing up and yelling at the TV, not out of anger but of pure hype. You can watch it once or you can watch it 20 times in a row. The aesthetic is perfect. You can imagine the producers watching it over and over and yelling the whole time about how hyped they were. It's a beautiful thing. You need to go into it with the right mindset though. You can't expect a masterpiece of plot. It's just one fight, andit is god damned beautiful.
