  • Very "Blah". If you like cowardly characters....
    Basically, you get an awesome character and switch him out for an over-dramatic, weak-willed, cowardly character that gets beat up in school for maybe the stupidest reason ever. He does nothing but look at his enemy with those stupid eyes of his the whole season and relies on his shield sword to stop all the bad things that are coming his way. Then magically he is able to throw energy at people ...

  • Nothing new in this anime really
    Basically this anime is the same as every other anime you've seen with a main character coming from another world...except worse. The protagonist is extremely weak, whiney, and useless and overthinks everything (this alone made me want to drop the anime). The final straw for me though was when the villain of the show comes to the other world to seek out the protagonist. That might not sound ...

  • it's great, couldn't stop watching
    very entertaining, the story has good momentum. although the basis of why there is a dispute may be minuscule to some people, the actual message being portrayed blankets the entire story throughout. you can probably assume what will happen in season 2 but i'm sure there will be twists. 5 stars for endearing feels.

  • Decent show for a 12ep season
    The show itself has a pretty basic story that does grab your attention an makes you look forward to what happens next. Sucks that it just ends but for the die hards out there the manga is available and further ahead (even though it is touch and go on when and if the next chapter will come.).

  • Had potential but was a waste of time...
    I have never written a review but after wasting my time watching this series, I want to warn all who consider watching this or adding it to their queue.

    This show has potential and follows your typical premise of a "chosen" main character from another world/dimension that must save the kingdom. The characters other than the main character from the new world all seem to have great motivations ...

  • Enjoyable series overall
    It's a new story and I think it's a story that can only get better from here on out. Will probably take a long time, but that's what Anime is. Hope there is a second season. I was a little confused with the beginning, but it made sense later. Won't be one of the best Anime's but still a good one to watch in between others that I'm waiting for.

  • Arata the Legend - A Review
    I was rather disappointed with the length of this anime.
    Arata the Legend starts out in a similar manner to Inu Yasha in that the main character is transported to a world where spirits and magical powers exist. That however is the only real similarity between the two.
    The ruling class of this world is chosen by special swords. Of which there are only a handful. Each one has its own abilities and ...

  • Quite possibly the worst bad guy ever.
    So the story starts off pretty decently, although somewhat predictable. This however is not at all the reason this anime falls into the category "abysmal mess".

    Lets get one thing clear, the motive for a bad guy, in anything, must at least be an understandable one. Even stooping as low as "You have it, I want it". Alas, no, this animes reason is not so thought out. If you disagree..... ...

  • Already 2015 and I'm waiting for more.
    It's already 2015. No second season. I finished it without realizing this and it has disappointed me. I wish for another season, but it seems there will never be one. Arata and Kadowaki's past wasn't really explained to me. Is Kadowaki pissed off because his run wasn't fast enough that he now wants to kill Arata? Sounds like a really stupid reason. I need more explanation then what was given. MORE ...
