    Road to Legendary

    Legend of the Legendary Heroes

    This is a somewhat review of the anime Legend of the Legendary Heroes. A series that I really like, but not often shows up on Anime Amino – so why not do somewhat of a review on it.

    Plot of Legend of the Legendary Heroes

    The plot of Legend of the Legendary Heroes is debatable. As mentioned the characters and soon to be mentioned animation contributes in my book very good.

    Having that said, of course there’s flaws. If you were to watch this without knowing anything of it, then you’d probably think this series is a comedy to begin with. From comedy to a somewhat gruesome medieval drama-ish. Sure there’s some plotholes and the change in characters can be considered bad – that however shouldn’t stop you from continuing. You can see series getting a 10/10 but even those has flaws in different aspects. Having this said (and hopefully well formulated) the plot is in my book acceptable – if I’m to be picky. Overall a great plot.

    Do keep in mind that there’s two intertwining plotlines which differs.

     

    Characters of Legend of the Legendary Heroes

    Ryner Lute, the main male protagonist. He’s considered the best mage in all of Roland. An awesome character with awesome abilities – holder of Alpha Stigma, a mysterious ocular ability. Often sleepy and pretty much unmotivated.

    Ferris Eris the heroine of this series. A swordsman designated to guard the king of Roland. A really charismatic character. She pretty much babysits Ryner and she loves Dango. She’s self-absorbed over her beauty and can be pretty emotionless sometimes.

    Sion Astal, currently king of Roland and best friends with Ryner. His ideal of a perfect empire is very alluring and he wants the best for the people. The people loves him and he strives for peace. Yet naive since he knows that sacrifices needs to be made to achieve these goals.

    There’s a lot more characters which is one of the strengths in this series. Their journey make you laugh, cry you name it – the core.

     

    The Art of Legend of the Legendary Heroes

    The art of Legend of the Legendary Heroes  is actually not that bad. It’s perfect in humorous and pretty violent scenarios. While the art doesn’t stand out, the animation is pretty well done. I was surprised at how fierce the fights are, and it certainly goes hand in hand with how brutal the setting can get. A stable animation overall.
    Now, I’ve seen it both subbed and dubbed. Sure this is a matter of opinions but the Japanese voice actors were better to be honest. The English ones didn’t quite get to me in different scenarios – couldn’t take it seriously.Is this an anime which is worth your time? Yes, yes it is!

    One Piece: The Greatest Adventure

    What is the meaning of this Shogo?

    One Piece

    If you know me by now, then you should know that I’m a huge, and I mean huge fan of One Piece. It’s as the title says. This however doesn’t mean it’s my favorite – since it’s so freaking hard to rank. Thus I leave out One Piece when it comes to lists – goes for other ‘bigger’ series as well. You can say that this blog is a ‘fanboy blog’ if you want, but I think I’ve earned to let some love out.

    But yes, you can say that One Piece is kinda my favorite.

    The Best Series Ever?

    One Piece

    The ‘big 4 or 5’ whatever comes up often – which I really couldn’t care less about. Aye this be true.

    One piece can and will make you shed tears of joy and sadness. When you watch one piece you get a sense of adventure that no other manga/anime delivers quite as well. You will always find yourself wanting more (This Jikan would back me up on with joy).

     

    One Piece Overall

    One Piece

    The amazing thing about one piece is that its writer found a way to tell a HUGE story that got twist plots and so much glamor while giving the audience a feeling of adventure that will never make you lose interest in the characters or the story. You will be sad when the characters are sad you, will laugh when they laugh and you will cry you eyeballs out when something happen to them.

    The animation seems to bug a lot of people. Why is debatable but as most of the cases – the manga is better. The anime is of course in my eyes still amazing.
