[US DVD] Hero Tales Part 2 Review
Review by Chris Beveridge
Mania Grade: C
Hero Tales has a lot going for it with the people behind the original manga but it comes across as such a mediocre at best effort with the story and rather bland animation to back it up. Everything has a by the numbers feel to it and nothing stands out as really exciting. The character designs are decent though they lack any serious detail to them and we're stuck with the same outfits for the most part throughout. The characters have very little in the way of depth but at least the action has some decent fun to it. Hero Tales works with plenty of familiar elements from Chinese style series but it isn't able to get past that and become its own work. I went into the show with little knowledge or expectations but it quickly became a show that felt more like a chore than a work that brought something new and interesting as it progresses.
Anime is not a right. It is a privilege, a consumer product, art, work for hire, a luxury, a hobby, entertainment.
