In the fantastical land of Amawakumi, a succession ceremony occurs each 30 years to pass control of the kingdom to a female heir of the Hime clan. But three decades ago, the Hime clan was unable to produce a daughter and was warned that if history repeated itself, the entire clan would be purged. Now faced with the same problem in the present, the Hime clan opts to send their disguised son Arata to the ceremony instead, unaware that he’d be sent into a trap where the former princess is murdered and the boy would be framed for the crime. Meanwhile, on Earth, Hinohara suffers a similar sense of betrayal at the hands of his classmates, and after wishing he could just disappear, he and Arata switch bodies. Now, as Arata struggles to find a way to return the two to their own worlds, Hinohara must try to escape capture, clear Arata’s name and fulfill this princess’s last wish by exposing her killers.

Spring 2013 Anime Review - Arata Kangatari - potential, but too cliche - voice acting isn't bad, soundtrack overall is good - really wish this got more money poured into, or a better director - "annoying misunderstanding issue" - 2 pairs of rival dualism is kinda cool - Looks like Naruto has made eye trading a "thing" now -.- I do however like how the iris changes back - Kadowaki broke out of the water prison so late when the spell released itself so long before - LOL wtf, Kotoha climbed the fissure/mountain without help or gear np to hug Arata and so quickly too. Big plot hole. - Got some minor InuYasha-level eye candy out of the show at least. Kadowaki's reasoning to be the villain is almost as bad as Sasuke's though... - The climatic ending was like 5 minutes of footage haha… - If there is another season, I can see it being better but still not all that great... ———————————————————————————————— UPDATE: Anime-Planet has removed the Blog feature where this post was originally published on March 23, 2014. I pulled the scores from my ratings, although this is NOT a formal review. Think of it more as “thoughts on…<anime title>”. I wrote my thoughts out as I progressed through the series, so contradictions may occur as my opinion shifts. To shorten the post I took excerpts from the original. Sorry for any inconvenience and please leave your thoughts below! :) 2013 Spring Anime Reviews: Attack on Titan - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14071 Gargantia - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14072 The Flowers of Evil - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14073 Arata the Legend - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14074 Devil Survivor 2 - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14075 HENNEKO - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14076/ Karneval - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14077/ Photo Kano - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14078 RDG - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14079 Crime Edge - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14080 Valvrave S1 - http://www.anime-planet.com/users/triviper/reviews/14081
