I, of course, already started to have high expectations for Rune Soldier. It is awesome, it's pretty funny, and less serious than it's counterparts. The characters all have unique attitudes of their own, and while the story progression can be a little pointless, *find runes to find treasure* the ending is actually surprising, and makes this Anime an extremely wise purchase. I would recommend Rune Soldier to any Otaku.
To begin with and to get out of the way the most obvious matter, I bought the shows when they came out separately and had to pay much-much more than the amount that people will have to pay for the complete collection.
To the story, it is mainly about three women - one a mercenary, one a priest and sort of white magician and one is a thief - and of course the main character Louie and his female friend. The previous mentioned women are adventurers but in order to succeed they need a powerful magician by their side. Well, imagine who this one will be, exactly no other than Louie. Well, the problem with this magician is that a) instead of studying magic he prefers to drink beer, b) instead of using magic he prefers his fists and kicks -especially when they encounter monsters for the first time I was laughing so much that I had started to cry, c) When he opens his mouth he is full of s..., what will make the viewer crack laughing with what comes out of his mouth...
However, as clumsy as he may appear at the beginning - the main reason why the three other women will "hate" him (during the first episodes, something that changes later on); but are forced to stick with him for the above mentioned reason - proofs itself to be as if the creator of the shows wanted to mislead us. Why am I saying this: Because there will be occasions (especially in the first episodes) when Louie says from time to time something so mature, and his magic from time-to-time proofs to be seriously strong, that the viewer will ask himself/herself, is there something more behind his, in many times, ridiculous and funny behaviour? The answer is yes, as it happened with Vash of Trigun...Read more ›
Man, am I ever glad I did. I was laughing out loud as some of the hijinx in this cartoon and it's rare I ever laugh at loud at anything.
Excellent voice acting, and the animation is very much in the vein of "Record of Lodoss War." A lot of the episodes are two parters, and there is just the right mix of drama and insane comedy. It was so enjoyable I ende dup tracking down the first 4 volumes of the manga.
Complete impulse purchase and I'm very glad I did. For the cost, you can't go wrong, especially when most anime DVD's are $20+ per DISC in this day and age
