Product Description

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.

Like Lina Inverse in Slayers, Cecily Campbell, the heroine of The Sacred Blacksmith, is a klutzy, loud-mouthed, red-haired knight who always comes through in the end. Unlike Lina, Cecily is built like a brick sushi bar, and most of the humor involves comments about the size of her chest. Isao Miura's series of light novels began appearing in manga form in March 2009; the anime version followed in October. The descendant of a noble clan of warriors, Cecily longs to follow in their footsteps, but her skills with a sword leave a lot to be desired. Her clumsiness earns her the scorn of Luke, a blacksmith who works with mysterious but cute assistant Lisa to forge powerful katana (Japanese long swords). His insults and her punches quickly turn into a typically fractious anime courtship. The convoluted plot teeters along unsteadily, like Cecily when she tries to wear high heels. The quarrelsome twosome has to cope with Demon Swords (some of which assume human form), demons, the malevolent god Valbanil, and a sinister cabal involving the emissary of a remote emperor. All ends happily, if inconclusively, with sequels likely to follow. Adolescent boys will delight in the mixture of chivalric daring-do and fan service shots. The special edition comes with a 32-page art booklet and pinup poster. (Rated TV MA; suitable for ages 16 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, nudity, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

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.

Lets keep this simple, you have probably already read summaries of the plot so im skipping that.
Some things you need to know going in:
a general rule of thumb with any anime is think of it as "game logic". Lots of people have complained that luke cut through another persons sword with his katana. Is it unrealistic? sure. but so are the demons and the setting and the people. lets not be so closed-minded okay? The way the official review describes this youd think it was clunky and kinda stupid. It isn't. the plot doesn't have a whole lot of time to develop (i mean come on, the whole series so far is only 12 episodes) But what you do see, in my case, wants me to come back for more. And it's not because of the fanservice, (which really isn't excessive, or even very present actually...) it is because for the first time in a long time i actually gave a crap about what happened to these people, i cared. not to mention the action is great, the dialogue (at least in japanese) is fun and entertaining or informative when it needs to be. My one complaint is that the bad guy is rather obvious. you take one look and you think "thats him." which kinda ruins the revealing of said bad guy. It is also necessary to point out that the reason it is so short is that the manga it is based off of is ongoing. So, where this story ends is about halfway through the existing manga. Just FYI.
Overall i really like this anime. thats why i bought it. I recommend scoping out anything you are interested in on a website like [...], where you can watch the whole series free, before purchasing anything.

Fun show.. It saddly has a few cliches that have been done several times before... Also seems to focus to much on the main characters breasts. Oh quick warning there is some nudity, all but one scene was pointless and were there just for nudities sake. Only 4 or so scenes like that so don't let it hurt your purchase. The one that worked though was funny so I let it slide even though it could be removed and nothing would really be left out. Also before I go on... I don't know how many of you noticed but the lead is the only female member of the knights guard with breast cups in her chest plate.

The show has a good plot with good characters. Its short comings come from the cliches. Like the jerk who the lead falls in love with, I think this is rectified a bit simply by how they explain his general behavior but he takes a while to become likeable.
Waaaay to much talking about the leads boob size... Seriously it is annoying at times but other times it can be funny... Oddly every time a male character refers to them it's actually funny or acceptable. It's probably because it is less common and doesn't feel forced.
Katana worship... Yeah... Lots of that. The funny thing is that the show writers seemed to put some research into the making of a katana but failed to do any on the other swords in the show. Katanas are neat swords but they are not as great as this show makes them out to be.
Bathhouse scene with 5 girls... Yeah goes about the same route any other would minus the pervert guys. Seriously there is only one perverted male in this show and he's only in the first episode the girls are the real perverts in this one.
