    Wouldn't Rewatch and only watching this to waste time
    Sadly this isn't on par with Yuu Watase's other works such as Fushigi Yuugi, Alice 19th, and Absolute Boyfriend. Character development was really slow and used cliche scenarios. Perhaps I just got tired of the same stuff. (No way, I was able to go through both Fushigi Yuugi versions). Then again I didn't like the anime version of Fushigi Yuugi and I haven't checked out the manga for Arata so ...

    Poorly structured and paced
    It has the feel of many 50 to 60 episode long shows but with only 12 episodes. What I mean by this is that the story would have been told better if it were considerably longer. Instead we are given drastic character mood swings that seem to be brought on by minor events, useless characters that add nothing to the story, and a villain with what is probably the worst motive I have ever seen. In the ...

  • 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 ...

    One of the Best Animes I have seen so far
    I love this anime, it really pulled me in and as soon as i was hooded it was done. I would like to see another season of this series if there is one out there. The story line of these two boys stuck in another word is amazing. I want to know what happens to them next.

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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.

    Not the Story Yuu Watase Wanted...Go in with an Open Mind..
    Arata isn't completely horrible when you go into it not expecting it to be an actual Watase story. Unfortunately, Watase had many hardships in writing the 22 volume manga which got rectified too late to save the anime.

    Below is a link talking about how editorial harassment ruined Arata's story as well as almost ruined Watase's want to create more manga.

    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 ...
