World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman

Jan 21, 2015

As a rule of thumb, if an anime has panty shots and boys have their faces thrusted into large teenage bosoms within the first ten minutes, then firstly it's for 9 year boys who get titilated by that sort of thing, secondly it will have a tired and over used storyline and thirdly it will be utterly boring! It's the start of a new season of anime and I get all excited by what interesting shows are going to be starting out. Last night after pretty much exhausting every other new series, and let me tell you, it's poor pickings so far, I came accross Seiken Tsukai no World Break. I decided after reading...

I am writing this after binge watching the first 14 episodes. I am quite surprised that Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen hasn't received better reviews, it currently stands at 2.68/5.00. My guess for this is that in the first few episodes it felt quite conflicted whether this was an adult or teenage storyline. It has the depth and subtleness of an adult story, with elements of the futility of war, politics, greed, revenge, power struggles, loss and is an overal intelligent series, but it takes it time to build on it. Where it fails is some of the characters. Jamie and Tokimune are somewhat irritating and I'm... See full review
