  • 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 ...

    Don't waste your time.
    Main villain is just a whiny high-schooler who hates the main character because he thinks the main character purposely slowed down in a foot race they were having at school. TERRIBLE motive that can not, in any possible way, justify the amount of hate and contempt he holds. And that alone just kills the show for me. All of the characters have half baked personalities. The show doesn't have any ...

  • Liked more than I thought I would...
    I watched all my current top choices, and while I didn't plan on watching this, I found myself enjoying this more than I thought I would.
    Though, in my opinion it was nothing too special (I mean there is a ton of anime out there), I continued to go to the next episode until completed in a very short amount of time (a day or two).
    At any rate, if you choose to watch it...enjoy.

  • 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 ...
