|Bishoujo Swordie Ferris and Slacker Mage Ryner: A Perfect Combination.|
|This spell was done with Ryner half awake!|
Another aspect of this anime that drives me is it's satirical and political nature. A new emperor has just been crowned and is trying to change a land filled corruption. That's not a very easy for any leader of a nation.
The title is also explained immediately as the introduction of episode 1. Which is good because after years of watching Bleach and reading the manga, I still have no idea why it was titled that way. Do you?!
|Don't mess with a girl and her balls|
Ryner Lute, who is the bearer of the Alpha Stigma, is an easy going mage who reminds me of Kakashi-Sensei. Sleepy all the time, and eyes that can copy an enemies techniques. He's regarded as the strongest magician in his country at a very young age but is also treated as an outcast since bearers of the Alpha Stigma can go berserk and turn against his allies. That's why every one fears him.
Ferris Eris comes from a clan of swordsmen and is acting as a bodyguard for Ryner while they look for Relics of Legendary Heroes. (I think that would've been a more appropriate title.)
Sion Astal the emperor of Roland Kingdom. He's a very smart fellow and hates corruption like hell. He is young, handsome and... likes Ryner eyes?! *shrugs*
Overall, this anime is something that shouldn't be missed this season. The action, wit, and humor is enough to keep you coming back for more. And since I'm a Suikoden fan, this anime fits right into my top anime to watch list. I just hope they don't mess it up at the end of the season like most good anime do. Know what I mean?
