    Talking No Jutsu- Arata Version
    If you guys thought Naruto's Lecture-no-jutsu was bad, this guys talking-no-jutsu is even stronger. It pretty much makes up the bulk of all the fights.

    Now, back to the anime:
    Bad pacing. Jumps between plot, and inconsistent pacing.
    Psychotic characters. They change quite often for no reason.
    Stupid Motives. Yeah, its lame. Watch it, and you will cringe. I guarantee it.
    Okay fighting. Yeah ...

    Interesting Premise, Poor Execution
    From the previews, this seemed like the type of show I would love - elemental swords, magic, and some great character designs. The actual show was definitely a disappointment. The pacing felt off; the ending didn't feel like it resolved anything, and the main character had the Naruto-like ability to end fights not by fighting but by talking and convincing his opponent to join him. While I don't ...

    Good anime... if you haven't read the manga.
    I know it's not Yuu Watase's fault for how this anime turned out, so it really sucks it got crammed into 12 episodes and didn't resolve everything. I haven't read the manga yet so I'm sure all of these issues will get resolved but it would've been nice to have it done in the show as well. Overall though I liked it!

    I still don't get the hate?!?
    After watching this I still don't understand why Arata was being picked on. I didn't get it at all. Looks like some big race happened and he won and it cause a downward spiral for his friend. That's like if I passed gas and aimed it at the person next to me then we would become enemies for life. There is no expiation as to why Arata is hated and that made me want to hate everyone else for no ...

    Fish out of water anime
    Yes the main character is very whiny in the beginning. But I promise you he is getting braver. After 5 episodes this show is starting to show some life. My opinion is the show's main theme is trust. I am a fan of normal people going to distant worlds ala El Hazard. PERHAPS at the end the show will be just as good. I intend to watch to see if it does.

  • So much potential, weak execution
    There was so much potential for a fun anime in this but the villain was so crappy. His entire reason for being "evil" and fighting the protagonist is so childish and whiny it becomes cringe worthy each time he says anything. If you can stomach a weak villain and poor scripting of the overall good and evil fight there are still some elements to this. Would not recommend watching unless you are just ...

  • Arata the Legend of poor execution
    While the animation and music score are very pleasing to see and hear, 'Arata the Legend' pales in comparison to the original source material. The first episode is hastily rushed leaving no time for the viewers to get to know the characters, and their back story's are hardly explained. Character development is painfully slow, much slower then it was in the manga, while others have no development ...

  • Like The Twelve Kingdoms, only bad.
    The Arata anime was clearly written as the first season of a much longer series, in which the hero experiences profound character growth and explores relations with other heroes and villains who are deep and well-realized characters in their own right. Unfortunately, the production company evidently got the news around episode 6 that they'd only get 12 episodes, and they compressed the remaining ...

  • A review on arata the legend
    This anime series has a very catch plot yet the episodes produced was very short if there would be more episode it would garner a lot of interested people. The plot involves two different kinds of worlds that would put interest to the viewer. It is really amazing to see a regular student like Arata himself would switched place with another Arata in another world. You can also manage to observe ...

    Had potential to be good
    If this had many more episodes (maybe around 40-60), it'd do the characters and plot justice. As it is, character development (and most everything else) was really rushed. I guess they had to make that sacrifice in order to tell as much of the story as they did, which was a shame, since this did have a lot of potential. It's certainly interesting. One of the more important flaws was the reason for ...
