  • 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 ...

    Why is this so short?
    While this is not my favorite anime, it was still entertaining while it lasted. The story is similar to other shows you've seen. The story seems rushed in parts but it still has decent flow. It leaves me wondering why it stops at 12 episodes though. There is obviously plenty of story left but from what I can find on the internet, no plans for further episodes. So, definitely worth a watch, but ...

    Good start, really needs another season to make the series though.
    This anime has a good setup, a decent story line and some pretty interesting characters. Unfortunately left the way it is with only 12 episodes it seems unfinished. So much of the story untold and I feel like the viewers really need more to feel satisfied with the ending. If they added more episodes and wrapped up the story line I'd probably give it five stars because I like it overall.

    Expected a better story line
    Seriously, at first I thought this would be an amazing anime to look forward to, but was greatly disappointed. Like another review stated, a bunch of useless characters. Bad guys motive is really dumb and Arata is a weak pansy. Also the stop at episode 12 was not even worth calling a cliff hanger. Hoping the second season has a change in the characters personality, like he suddenly sees everything ...

    Average at best.. some spoilers
    Average anime, good for killing time but nothing special. Somewhat of spoilers ahead.

    No real character progression. I mean, why would the main character still wear his school clothes in an environment where they could do him more harm than good, and none of the other characters think weirdly of his otherworldly attire?
    Bad guys are simply forgiven and become good?
    Also, certainly a spoiler. ...

  • Arata the Legend a unfinished legend
    while i will say that i do like this anime it deals with bullies. it also talks about being able to overcome challenges in your life. it seemed very rushed anime. while i have not read the manga i don't how it ends because i would like to hope their will be a continuation soon. through with so many series coming out it likely it could be lost in the shuffle of things. the story many times seem ...
