4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Fantasy Anime But Lacks Any Originality, January 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sacred Blacksmith: Complete Series (Limited Edition) (DVD)
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...
