Editorial Reviews

Cecily's a blushing knight in shining armor. Unfortunately, it seems most battles end with her as the damsel in distress. Her lack of skill and distaste for violence make her an unlikely heroine - until the brooding blacksmith Luke comes to her aid, using his powerful magic to forge blades of supernatural strength. Cecily wields this sacred steel and charges forth to face a dangerous new threat; a cloaked fiend is unleashing demons upon the land, and though he lurks in shadows, the villain is much closer than Cecily can imagine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but needs a 2nd season December 2, 2010
By NC
Format:DVD
Caught this as it was airing. The setting and characters are rather interesting as well as the fight scenes. The ability for swords to become people and then back again is rather unique along with the sword forging process that the main character does during big fights. There is some light fan service attempts and the series seems to teeter on being either serious or light hearted, but in the end it leaves you hoping for a 2nd season. Really right now thats the only reason I could give for downing this series is that when it ends, the storyline is just picking up and getting good.

"The Sacred Blacksmith" anime series makes its way to the US courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment.

Based on the Japanese light novel series by Isao Miura, with original character designs by Luna, a total of nine volumes have been published by Media Factory under their MF Bunko J label (targeted towards young adult males, the J stands for juvenile). Meanwhile a manga adaptation began its serialization in 2009 in the monthly manga magazine "Monthly Comic Alive" and in October 2009, a 12 episode anime series by Manglobe aired on AT-X through December.

The anime series is directed by Masamitsu Hidaka ("Linebarrls of Iron", "I Dream of Mimi", "Pokemon Advance"), a screenplay adaptation by Masashi Suzuki ("Hell Girl", "Shuffle!", "Akane Maniax") and character design by Jun Nakai ("Tokyo Majin").

"The Sacred Blacksmith" takes place in a land that was once ravaged in the great Valbanill War. During that time, humans sacrificed their bodies to become powerful demons in which they would turn into Demon Contracts (weapons). These weapons have long been banned.

The story begins with a 3rd generation Knight named Cecily Campbell. She has sworn herself to protect the city from harm and corruption but one day, she sees a former Knight that looks out of it and screaming for "salvation". When she goes to apprehend him, he strikes with a huge sword which breaks apart her family sword (that has been part of the Campbell generation for ages).

The Knight nearly kills her but he is stopped by Luke Ainsworth, a mysterious blacksmith who easily beats the Knight with his sword and his sword easily cuts through the Knight's sword with ease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but unfinished. October 18, 2012
By KevinB
Format:DVD
Cecily is a knight. Unfortunately she ends up getting saved more than she ends up saving people. On one such occasion she is saved by the blacksmith, Luke. She becomes friends with Luke and begs him to forge a magic katana for her. An mystery man is unleashing demons on the land. Cecily and Luke must fight to protect their country from the evil demons.

This series is well made. It has good animation, voice actors, and a good soundtrack. There are plenty of good characters, laughs, and action. The story is pretty solid as well. It doesn't finish though. It was released in 2009, so there may be a possibility for a 2nd season. I liked this series and I recommend it to any anime fan. I believe it's worth 4 stars b/c it leaves ya hanging. However, if they finish it it'll probably get 5 stars. I can't give 5 stars to an unfinished work. Even so it's still worth watching.

The Sacred Blacksmith is a medieval fantasy anime with knights, demons, spells, and magic. The main character Cecily Campbell is the daughter of a noble knight who died and thus passed the knighthood to her having no male heirs. Her Oath as a knight and her familys duty is to protect a neutral trade city that stands in the middle of a huge and powerful empire and several other minor countries. She is often praised for having large breast (almost in every episode it happens at least once) but she doesnt have any fighting skills as a knight and even breaks her familys sword that had been passed down through the generations. She is often saved by an EMO, antisocial, Sasuke-like (Naruto Fans anyone) blacksmith called Luke Ainsworth and his assistant Lisa who has the mysterious ability to summon a forge on the battlefield allowing Luke to craft Katana swords on the spot.

The world is filled with magic such as items called Demon Swords that can take the form of humans, Demon contracts that turn humans into demons, and prayer contracts that cure impurity, illness, and disease. This anime had alot of great potential with a very interesting background, catchy music, characters that grow on the viewer, and the potential to expand the main characters skills and journeys to many different areas. Sadly the story is only 12 episodes long (even in Japan) and it leaves all the characters in the beginning stages of their journey, skill level, and leaves the story unfinished.

I would recommend watching this on Netflix if your really interested in watching the series, any serious anime collector would be upset if they purchased an anime with no ending out and nothing planned for the future to create an ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Fantasy Anime But Lacks Any Originality January 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you've seen other series like Slayers, Tower Of Druaga, Magic Knights Of Rayearth an the like than this series will come as no surprise. The three main characters all have similar backgrounds and character angst we've seen with dozen of other hero's, you have the young naive female knight who wishes to bring honor to her dead father and family by proving her resolve and courage in battle but must overcome her own fears of inadequacy about herself and her beliefs, than we have the young mystical blacksmith with his trusted young female demon apprentice who is more a nursemaid to him most of the times but the young blacksmith not only has the great skills of a swordsman that attracts the young female knight but has the magical ability to summon a mystical cauldron to forge profound powerful swords in battle but as the story progresses we see the young blacksmith has his own personal agenda that intersect with the female knights goals too. The series leaves an open end that is obviously meant to allow a possible continuation of the anime series which it hopefully does but even though the series is short it's still enjoyable with enough action, humor, and a touch of fan service to keep us entertained. The box set itself is also reminiscent of past Funimation sets a few years ago, the set comes in two slim dvd cases put into a sturdy cardboard case with a small pamphlet which has pictures of most of the series females but that's pretty much it but still for any fan of fantasy animes or looking for a good action series here's a pretty good one to collect for your home anime library...

This series is fun to watch. It has the craziness that any other anime has, but I feel they ended it too early! They could have made it into two seasons.
