Editorial Reviews

Long ago, the advanced Tribe of Gold vanished from the vast universe. In the void left by their departure, the tyrannical Tribe of Silver ascended to rule, forcing mankind – the Iron Tribe – to the brink of extinction.

Now humanity wanders the cosmos in search of a savior. Prophesy has foretold of one who will labor for their freedoms, and on a planet of ruin, a champion is found. A feral boy named Age holds the destiny of their species in his hands and the untold power of the Tribe of Hero within.

Having just watched the full series of Heroic Age in its Blu-ray incarnation (it was only just released this month), I must give it a very strong recommendation. Set in a world that essentially unites elements of Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and with explicit influence from Greek mythology, the show is an obvious choice for fans of sci-fi spectacle. Action fans will enjoy heavy-hitting, subwoofer friendly battles of often entertainingly absurd scale. If planets and even galaxies could run and hide, they'd be advised to in Heroic Age. But the show is also more than just bang and boom.

Political intrigue and emotional underpinnings of the battles are never far from mind. Many of the important players in the show are desperately looking for a way out of the violence and chaos, not reveling in it. Two of four primary tribes (species) in the series have been set to battle each other, many confused by the meaning of contractual obligations (Labors) set before them, or rather to individual powerful beings "assigned" to them. These two are the technologically sophisticated but blindly arrogant Silver Tribe, and the space-faring upstarts the Iron Tribe, our human race. The Golden tribe is the one each aspires to find but which has also set them into galactic conflict. The Bronze tribe is an insect-like tribe that works at the behest of whichever tribe has been granted control over them. In this case, that would be the Silver tribe which uses them as front-line fodder against the Iron Tribe.

Last but not in the slightest least, there are five dominant beings formerly of the Heroic tribe. Four of them are under the thumb of the Silver tribe due either to contract or threats against their related homeworlds. The fifth is within our titular hero, Age.

My wife was streaming this series from the Funimation site last week. It was a little blocky and the sound was not high fidelity, but it reminded me how much I liked it when I saw it a few years ago. Was a little hesitant buying it since I had now watched it twice -- very glad I did.

First nothing beats a professional translation; things that were murky in the first version I saw were crystal in this one.

Second the video is gorgeous. I was thinking HD was wasted on an abstract medium like anime. I was wrong, it matters.

Third the audio has impact. The 5.1 soundtrack is impressive. My subwoofer kicked-in a lot. The strong beat really helps with the emotional impact of the scene. It was like being deaf before. The score gets a little repetitious, but that could be due to having watched it three times.

Fourth the plot is good. It is like David Brin's Uplift Saga meets Gundam.

Fifth the dub, I normally prefer subtitles, but this time I liked the dub better. One of the voice actors was also in my favorite series (Irresponsible Captain Tylor).

Sixth the price, this is ridiculously cheap for a 26 episode series on blue-ray.

Much like Claymore and D. Gray-man, this is a fairly recent series I loved watching on rented DVDs, but held off on buying on the off-chance it would arrive on blu-ray. And here we are. The animation for this series is stunning, and I love the story. It's not without problems; sometimes the battles between the Nodos get a little redundant and tedious, and some of the main characters are downright unlikable. Even so, it adds some unique ideas to the space opera genre, and ends far more conclusively than some other series I could name. Recommended (though try a couple episodes before you drop the dough on the whole collection).

This is one amazing space anime. It reminded me of Battlestar Galactia. Story is great and pace is great not too fast or slow. There is no romance or fan service (only 2 women with big boobs/cleavage), but there is chemistry between a few characters. I would recommend this to those space mech fans or anyone who wants a good story. Also, I saw the dub and it was great plus that addition of 5.1 surround is amazing.

Only Con about this is lack of special features such how they dub it etc, or commentary or creating this anime. The only extras on the third disc are trailers and textless songs opening and closing.
Also, for some reason I open this and the case broke, like the bottom clip thingy so it only closes the top part of the case :(

If I was reviewing the series itself the rating would be five stars.
This review concerns the Blu-ray box set itself.
The region coding information on the box states that the Blu-rays are coded for regions A,B and C making the set region free, this is not true. The Blu-rays are in fact coded region A, a fact that is stated on the discs themselves. I have contacted Funimation about this discrepancy and to date they have yet to answer any of my e-mails, the first of which were sent on the 25th of August.
In short, if you have a region A player buy this box (great series), if your have a region B or C player don't bother with this box set.

Heroic age is one of the best animes I've seen. It was originally made by Xebec studio, as a television series. The series was then picked up by a Manga Magazine. The series is not rated, as many anime aren't, but if it did have a rating it would be PG, at worse.

I'm a big fan of Japanese anime because of the visual imagery, but also because of the deep-seeded meaning behind their stories. They can be quirky, action-packed, dramatic, or any other type of genre, but there is almost always a deep philosophy shared. Sometimes it's hard to find, but it is usually there. Heroic Age is riddled with it.

The very characters are based on Greek mythology. Age, the protagonist, is loosely based on Hercules, and the twelve labors he had to perform. Even the title Heroic Age refers to the heroic age of the Greek heroes. The tribes come from the Greek poet Hesiod, and his five ages of mankind. The Golden Tribe is the Golden Age of immortals, or the gods. The Silver Tribe is after the Silver Age of men, or those ruled under the god Zeus. They always squabbled and lived short lives. They refused to worship Zeus, so he destroyed them. The Bronze Tribe was patterned after the Bronze Age where Zeus supposedly made men out of ash tree. They had armor made of bronze, as were their tools and weapons. They were violent, and unworthy, so they died and were sent to live with Hades. The Heroic Tribe is patterned after the Heroic Age. This age was not compared to any metal. Men were made from the bones of the earth. Men lived with demigods and heroes. The men from this age made a name for themselves and their names were jotted down to be remembered for all times. Most of the heroes from Greek Mythology come from this age.
