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).

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.

*sigh*

I like my Sci Fi 1. Hard, 2. Epic and 3. Dramatic.

This series was Epic, the fate of humanity is in the balance
This series was Dramatic, maybe too dramatic in fact, it was pretty pretentious at times.

But Hard? This was hard like a marshmallow. It was a shame, because they did have some epic battles and technology, but the main plot point revolves around some "people" who turn into monsters and bash each other and their enemy fleets to pulp. It was like watching 2 old guys in a boxing match punch each other in the face for hours on end with no resolution too. They did a fair job attempting to explain where they came from and why they fought but it falls flat.

It was clean, you can watch this with your kids (though violent for the very young crowd, maybe 11 - 12 and up).
It had an ending, so you don't need to worry about another season that either exists and carries on or will never be made. The ending didn't thrill me, but they did try to make some sense of it all.
Some of the characters were memorable, but not many and most were wooden.
Its inexpensive so its not a big payout.

If you've got teenagers, and you want them to watch something a bit more mature, but avoid the fan service and gratuitous violence, this is not a bad series, but by the end of the story, I barely cared what happened to the characters at all.
