  • Possibly the best of its season
    Blast of Tempest drew me in with the art style; at first, the story is not that compelling or intriguing, and it is set up like a fairly standard "something bad is happening -> defeat an enemy to fix it" shonen adventure formula. The character designs are cool, but their personalities don't bring anything new to the table. For the first few episodes, although wider themes are alluded to, nothing ...

    The means vs the end
    The show started off excellent. The artwork is unlike most of the mainstream-styles, and the animation is smooth and action packed, at least at the start. What may seem to be another shounen-action show, later becomes completely centered around romance with loads of philosophical banter. The first few episodes of action reeled in an action-audience for a romance show of eighteen-some episodes that ...

  • Absolute Masterpiece of an Anime
    Blast of Tempest is an anime with a riveting and engaging story that just keeps you entranced the entire way. Biggest factor to point out are the huge Shakespeare themes that the story revolves around. This adds the elegance and pace of the anime to masterpiece levels as is expected from the themes of Shakespeare.

    For me, I have anime that are recommended, and then I have anime that are ...

  • A good thought-provoking anime
    This was a good series. Very thought-provoking and interesting. Lots of Shakespeare references yet it all fits. It has several plot twists and very enjoyable characters. There is a lot of talking and debating which means if you love constant action you might be a little disappointed. However, it does have a lot of action scenes as well. I definitely recommend it.

  • Ingenuity at it's finest *:・゚✧*:・゚✧
    I've got to be honest here - unlike most people, I wasn't hooked the minute I watched this. In fact, I watched about 10 minutes and gave up - my past self's lack of patience and unwillingness to let the plot unfold pretty much sealed the deal.

    I find myself flabbergasted, 6 months later, at the mere fact that I could ever over look such a masterpiece.

    An ingenious plot, great character ...

  • Le Sigh...Shakespeare and Love there's nothing better.
    I cannot tell you how I tried to delegate out the episode for this series just to make it last a little bit longer...now that I've seen it to the end I don't know if I'm truly sad or content.

    Aiwa's character was probably my most and least favorite character. I under estimated her importance however in the end she was quite beautiful. Her dedication to her staged character was so desperate, ...

  • So much fun to watch
    A fantastic show. I wish the second half could have had as much action as the first half, but the show manages to meld Shakespeare, fate, human relationships, magic, explosions, strong characters and excellent animation. Each episode made me want to watch more, and it closed out strong. (Though not as strong as the first half, alas).
    Best part: lots of great plot twists!

  • the greatest anime I've ever seen
    literally the greatest anime I've seen so far (and probably will see). it is unpredictable and the main characters with the exception of the mage of exodus (i forgot his name), are geniuses! If you are a fan of supernatural qualities with a hint of romance, this is the perfect anime. I don't think that there will be a continuation which makes me incredibly depressed. the writers did such a ...

  • Good Anime its only fault...
    is that from time to is that it knows it.

    But I'll get back to that in a bit lets go though the formalizes first:

    Animation: Great

    This is made by Bones I need say nothing else.

    Soundtrack: Good

    Nothing that had me looking it up on Youtube to have it repeat over and over but the music is fitting for where its played.

    Characters: Good

    All the important ones are fleshed out ...

  • A very compelling and unpredictable series
    This series I would have to say is a work of art. It seems to have a little bit of everything and you never really know the truth or whats going to happen next until they finally decide to lay it all out. The characters are finely developed as well; I really enjoyed this series.
