A war between bordering lands Roland and Estabul has begun. At the King of Roland’s command, Ryner Lute,a bearer of a cursed. Extremely lethal power called the Alpha Stigma, and his beautiful comrade Ferris set out on a search for the Heroic Relics—artifacts that contain enormous supernatural powers and can be devastating if placed in the wrong hands. War tactics, bloody magical battles, and political intrigue plot twists ensue.
The broadcast series The Legend of the Legendary Heroes (2010) is based on a series of light novels by Takaya Kagami, which have also been adapted to manga and video games. Ryner Lute ranks as the least impressive student at the national military academy: all he wants to do is nap. But he's actually an eclipsingly powerful Alpha Stigma, a warrior who can counter any magical weapon and hurl it back at his foe. Sion, the noble king of Roland, pairs him with hot-tempered blonde Ferris and sends the mismatched pair out to find magical relics. While Ryner and Ferris fight and fuss their way from one scrape to another, Sion and his advisers try to turn Roland into a just and peaceful kingdom, despite the opposition of the crude, grasping nobility. Any number of supernatural anime comedy-adventures have pitted a violent, hot-tempered girl against a passive doofus. But Legendary Heroes suffers from a void at its center. Ryner wants to spend his life sleeping because he's afraid of his formidable powers. Vash in Trigun lives in terror of the power of his Angel Arm, but his concern for others gives him an appealing warmth; Ryner remains a nonentity. Ferris fusses endlessly and pointlessly, and the shtick of her demanding dango (rice-flour dumpling) quickly wears out its welcome. Legendary Heroes also suffers from both too much story and too little. The complicated geopolitics of the imaginary world are frequently invoked, but never adequately explained. Yet director Itsuro Kawasaki and his crew waste the viewer's time with filler scenes that only make the narrative feel needlessly choppy and talky.

|Part 1&2 as seperate sets??||
Legendary Heroes is 24-episodes long, so I'd surmise that Funimation has split the series into 2-parts to maximize profits. This has been their trend with most of their releases as of late.
The same day release for both parts can be due to the fact that Legendary Heroes aired in Japan in... Read More
