The Legend of the Legendary Heroes is partially about the misadventures of Ryner (magician) and Ferris (swordswoman). I say partially because despite their pictures on the Blu-ray boxart, there are episodes where they're nearly absent for other characters and storylines. The bulk of the main and mini-stories does gravitate around Ryner and Ferris however.

Legendary Heroes is a political drama at its heart; dealing with the kingdom of Roland and its neighboring nations. There is a lot of conversations between different characters, laced with flashy action sequences and the occasional slapstick humor. Composition wise, I'd say 50% drama, 30% action, and 20% comedy.

What stands out in this show for me, is that most of the characters are a little rough around the edges. There is no morally high ground character who only accomplishes good deeds. Everyone has varying levels of selfishness, and to me, makes for a show with some friction that mirrors reality. I guess in simpler terms, most of the characters have depth, and do not simply play an archtype.

Another theme I enjoyed about Legendary Heroes is that even seemingly 'evil' characters have their uses, and sometimes ally themselves with the supposedly 'good' characters to accomplish a common goal. There are only a few clear cut instances of actual good vs evil.

Other Legendary Heroes keynotes:

- Ryner is the focus of physical abuse. Mostly by Ferris.
- The mood of the show is primarily brooding. This trend is broken on occasions with humor at the expense of Ryner.
- There is no outright romance. Though there are hints of romantic tension between certain characters.
- The action sequences are fun to watch, comprised of magic and sword users.
- Death is prominent.

This review covers the whole series (Part I and II) and contains no spoilers.

- Introduction -

These 24 episodes are a prelude. A prologue. This anime is an adaptation of the light novel series. It is an excellent series nevertheless, in anime or light novel format.

Unfortunately the light novels which cover the story after these 24 episodes, as of now, remain largely untranslated. The story gets so juicy after 24 episodes. But. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me start from the beginning.

Ryner Lute and his friend Sion go to a military school for the poor and the orphaned. They train for war as tools for the nobels. The setting is much like Europe, multiple nations, multiple war fronts, and tension between all kingdoms/nations.

The school is sent out on a mission. I won't say how it ends, for it would be a spoiler but it's not too interesting. In fact, it is rather predictable. The anxiety and constant fear of the red headed main female character gives it away.

Ryner is arrested after the battle and is tortured for being an Alpha Stigma, a powerful magician-berserker. Sion is chosen to be the hero of the battle and the red headed female is released in exchange for Ryner's freedom. (The red headed female is such a minor character I can't recall her name.)

Ryner spends years writing a thesis in regard to legendary relics of power. Sion, now king, discovers this thesis and spares Ryner from the death penalty (given automatically to Alpha Stigmas).

From here Ryner meets Ferris, a bishoujo that is a demon with the sword -- and dango consumption.

I think that's enough summarizing. Let's get into why this anime is so good.

I loved this series.
I didn't know what to expect when I started the series. The main story revolves around Reiner. However, this anime has a huge cast and is not always focused on Reiner.

The story starts off light, but as more and more characters are introduced, you see that the anime is much darker. Political undertones, action, comedy, and light romantic hints.

I originally watched this anime online and loved the story. I decided to purchase the blu-ray version to see the anime in all it's glory. The blu-ray version does not disappoint. You can watch it dubbed or subbed with the original Japanese track. The first blu-ray disc has two episodes with commentary. I do wish there were more extras. But I can't complain as the main reason to get this was to watch this fine series with blu-ray clarity.

After all of the episodes, the anime is a bit unfinished in the grand story. Hopefully they will do a continuation in the near future.

Ryner Lute would like nothing more than to sleep the days away in peace. Unfortunately, he has a strange and unrivaled magical power sleeping within him. His old friend Sion, who is now the King, pairs him up with a beautiful yet overbearing girl named Ferris. Ferris is an excellent warrior that fights for the right to enjoy sweets. The unlikely pair is on a mission to find relics of a Legendary Hero. These relics will ensure that the Kingdom will remain powerful and rule over the land with justice.

This anime surprised the heck out of me. It has excellent animation, voice acting, and a great soundtrack. There are lots of cool characters, an involved story, plenty of comedy, action, and drama. It has it all. The title is kind of generic and lazy, so I didn't expect much. That goes to show you that you can't judge a book by it's cover. If you've seen shows like Berserk, Record of Lodoss War, or Ragnarok; and liked them, you'll probably like this series. Personally, I think it's better than all of the titles that I mentioned before. I believe that there is something here for every anime fan. Definitley give The Legend Of Legendary Heroes a chance.
