- 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.Read more ›
This anime is pretty good. I like the characters, voice actors, animation, and soundtrack. The story is also really good. The big downfall of this series is that it just sort of stops in what should be the middle of the story. There could easily be another whole season after this. Nothing is resolved, and the world is in more turmoil than it was in the beginning. I could give this anime 5 stars if it didn't just stop where it did. There could be more to come. You never know. But now it reminds me of how Berserk just dropped off in the middle of the story and never finished. Even so, This anime is worth watching. Lets just hope they continue it.
I found fan translations of the novels at baka tsuki... Unfortunately, most of the books remain untranslated, they're in dire need of translators at baka tsuki. I read the 5 translated volumes of Dai Densetsu no yuusha no densetsu and it takes the story much further than what the anime presented. In fact, the anime itself is just the first and second volume of the first series of books Densetsu no yuusha no densetsu... Basically what I'm saying is that that's probably only 5% of what occurs in the books. The amount of detail and plot twists that are presented in these books are just absolutely phenomenal.
I'd come close to call it the harry potter of the east if anything. Honestly if the books were translated and if the anime continued on i'd say it could potentially beat the harry potter series as good as they were. You are truly immersed in this story and there's sooo much that happens and so much that can potentially happen.
Now i'm pending on translations that happen every 4-6 months for one measly chapter or two. At this rate I think I'm better off learning japanese or chinese to just read these series ( and i've thought about it multiple times, unfortunately i don't have the time i used to anymore).
Anyways, if you're looking forward for a fun experience that brings in rich content a ton of mystery and somewhat a more harsh reality in a story as opposed to what the west ussually presents us with, definitely buy these dvds and watch the anime.
However, just keep in mind the series will only give you a glimpse of what the books are about.Read more ›
