For Love

Enjoyed this story. Story has some sidesteps to the main storyline that tie everything together.

Fantastic

Almost the game of thrones of anime with a slew of interesting characters mixed with decent animation and touches of love and war.

Interesting concept, poor story
chacham1 July 2019
Pros: Nice graphics and some interesting ideas.

Meh: A lot of cgi.

Con: fighting scenes are ridiculous, story is childish and hard to follow.

The concept of crests in the story is interesting and had me intrigued by the first episode or two, but the story itself is simple and ludicrous, following no obvious order. The graphics are not bad except armies are CGI making an ugly mixture when they show up, and whether someone wins or loses a fight seems to have no basis in "reality".

The real story seems to be the negotiations being made, which indeed has a little interest, but they keep throwing in more details as conveniences to keep the story going. The alliances that are made seem superficial and people are too trusting, it feel as if the story was made for five-year-olds.

I dropped the series at the beginning of the fifth episode because it was becoming a bore. Although it's an interesting concept, the story itself is lacking.

Also left at Episode 5

I was initially interested in a politically complex anime, and I was decently engaged with the alliances, negotiations, and conquering of lands. The Crest system was also pretty cool.

The show does continue to build on its complexities, but unfortunately more characters become involved and there wasn't enough to compel me to continue watching for the original characters.

The main Hero Theo seems initially strong, but is very lukewarm about his main objective. His mage is supposed to help him, but she also has her own motivations, and we're not clear about that either.

By the fifth episode, the show piled on too many characters and too many plot elements, but not enough for me to care.
