Mixed Feelings
Hortensia Saga is an odd one. On one hand, it’s yet another generic fantasy gacha adaptation. On the other, it was actually quite enjoyable for me.

I’ll be quick and brief with this one, everyone knows I am easy to please with anime. Story doesn’t have to be top notch or revolutionary, I like good character interactions and waifus. Hortensia has neither. The plot does nothing to actually draw you in and interest you. The characters are all shallow and have no real depth to them, other than the main antagonist whose motivations are still rather generic.

Despite the complaints, I actually did find the show to be fun to watch. It’s one of those situations where you know something isn’t good, but yet still like it. I definitely would not recommend this show to most people.

The CG in the show is pretty damn bad at times. When the fight sequences stay 2D, they’re decent. But, often times monsters and fights went with the CG style, probably to save the staff time and effort, but it just didn’t look right at all. The still art is really good, though. Backgrounds are bright and colourful and I do like the character style.

If you’re looking for a fantasy gacha adaptation to watch, try Priconne or King’s Raid. Hortensia Saga is painfully average and will most likely be a chore to sit through. Hortensia Saga gets 6 out of 10.
