First Episode(s) Review for: Blade and Soul
A silent killer on the run from an empire is hired to defend a village under threat from same said empire, she performs her duty perfectly but will her presence bring down the wrath of the empires own army of Killers? (the answer is Yes)
Slightly odd animation, excellent detail and glorious fight scenes, with sharp character design against near watercolour backgrounds and for some reason CGI flags.
I have not played the game that the anime is based off but it seems to be giving them plenty of plot to go with and it is moving along fast even on the first episode, it’s rare that I cant treat a game based anime as background but there is simply too much plot (a good thing)
Tribal fight music, nothing notable and I cant remember any lyrics, suitable but not outstanding
Reminds me of:
Even before the opening credits it was obvious that this came from either an RPG or a computer game (just too many huge pairs of boobs), but it flows well and if it was not for the slightly suspect number of scantly clad ladies with swords there is nothing that stops it being a full blown plot filled series, I will be watching with interest.
