Editorial Reviews

Co-written by the creator of Full Metal Alchemist, this twenty-six episode collection is perfect for anime fans in search of action-packed revenge sagas with a side of camp!

His village was burned. His friends were murdered. And a mustachioed madman stole the sacred sword of power that rightfully belonged to him. Seeking justice, young Taito embarks upon a mission of vengeance that brings him face to face with cutthroat bandits, lethal ninjas, and zombie foot soldiers! Aided in his quest by new comrades with mysterious powers, Taito stays true to his goal: destroying Lord Keiro, the man with the malevolent mustache. As the final showdown approaches, the young hero's emerging powers allow him to seek revenge against the man who destroyed his world. Only one warrior can emerge victorious in the series that DVD File calls, ''one part Lupin III, one part GI Joe and one part Avatar: The Last Airbender.''

A would say Hero Tales is a safe buy for kids, but once you pass the age of 12, products like this appear uninspiring, generic and dull. This was co-written by the creator of Full Metal Alchemist and that is enough of a desperate selling point that it's branded on the front of the box.

This product resembles nothing of FMA with the exception of the characters faces somewhat modeling after the look of FMA. The animation is subpar, the fights are poorly blocked and employ 2 frame movements and animation-saving director's gimmicks. The colors are washed out and don't jive well with the backgrounds, CG is integrated poorly, and a lack of shading has the characters looking like cutouts.

I don't wanna to crap too hard on the story. Just because a story is simple, doesn't make it bad. The plot to Hero Tales is as paper-thin as the average kung fu movie. There's some mild revenge, youthful angst and a generic quest packed with redundant formula. Stories like these can survive, but only with interesting characters, lots of growth, or at least stunning animation.

In summation, this is a great product if you have young kids that you're hoping to indoctrinate into anime. As an artistic product among of sea of quality anime, it offers little to nothing. It's a shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not great October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
The storyline was alright, the animation was great. I feel the show jumped the shark in Part 2 as there's some things that happened that felt... out of place. As in, the actions some of the characters took didn't really match up with their personalities or how they'd been built up to that point.

It was alright for an anime, but I was a little let down by the second half.
