View Full Version : Mirage of Blaze: Worth picking up?
02-02-2006, 04:02 PM
I was looking through the Anime section of my local Best Buy the other day, and I saw the boxset of Mirage of Blaze. My questions are this:
Is the show worth getting?
Is the show explicitly shounen-ai, or is it more implied?
Are there bishies in the show?
Is the Rebels of the River Edge DVD included in the boxset?
Thanks in advance. /images/graemlins/catgirl0.gif

1) Depends on your tastes. It's not bad, but you'll find it dull if you aren't inclined to appreciate complicated historical feuds and angsty bishounen.
2) There's no explicit physical stuff shown, if that's what you mean. It's definitely a boys' love series, but that's not really the main element of the story, and the romance angle is kind of depressing overall. It's a complex relationship with a lot of bitterness, resentment and power struggles. I actually love that kind of thing, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. And the historical/action stuff is a bigger part of the show, anyway.

I might just end getting this series after all. The bishie factor is certainly tempting. Thanks for the info Dagger. /images/graemlins/sdsmiley.gif

The guy are gorgeous in the show!!!
But remember, its more action and historical. They go into a lot of details.
Its a nice show.
If you pick up the box, you can pick up the OVA as well.

Checkout your local Bestbuy store! They have it under $25 for the box set (4 DVDs) if you are not sure for the price just ask whoever work on games & movies department for price check! /images/graemlins/wink.gif
