  • Great anime! A must watch!
    I liked this anime a lot. The story gets your attention from the start and you just get hooked. The story is very interesting and different and the characters are great. Is beatutiful, touching, funny, and it has a lot of great action scenes, in other words it has everything. I just happened to read a little of the description and I had this anime in my queue list for a while, honestly I never ...

  • Already one of my favorites
    After watching the first episode, I already knew that this show would be awesome. It left me with so many questions to answer, an awesome looking plot, and a unique story that i had to continue to watch. Not only is Blast of Tempest mysterious, but it has a hint of romance, well developed characters, and plenty of twists & turns that'll force you to watch it all in a day. Also, this show gave me ...

  • BEST ANIME YOU WILL EVER WATCH
    This anime has all the elements of a modern American TV Drama. I was afraid that all the elements to the story would get confusing but the story line was wonderful and so was the art! I wish there was more to this series, a sequel or something!

  • A nice little mystery
    This anime is a nice little mystery with a good dose of tragedy and romance and action thrown in. I'm a sucker with anything related to shakespeare, but that also makes me a bit tougher of a critic on it. Overall worth the watch.

  • An unexpected plot with engaging characters
    Sometimes, you find an anime that right from the start has you at that crossroads of confused and engaged that you MUST know more. Sometimes, you come across a character that is just so consumed by a goal, you have to wonder why. And sometimes, you find out nothing goes anything like how you expected.

    Blast of Tempest is one of those few gems.

  • Quite what you expect from the trailer.
    It started out slow and steady and then BAM! They give you what to expect through the rest of the season. Not what i really expected for an anime with magic, but it wasn't disappointed either. It was brilliantly made and amazingly made use of shakespear's work. It's a little hard for a younger or non reader audience so i would only reccomend if you love suspence and have experience in literature.

  • Breath of fresh air.
    Good show. It tugs on the emotions of frustration, but it leaves you satisfied. The dialogue is stimulating. Good art quality. Just the right amount of episodes. It flows consistently with few to no lulls in the plot.

  • Tempest or Hamlet (A review written on the intent not to spoil)
    Story: This is a story of revenge, however, will the ending will be like Hamlet? Or will it end as the Tempest? This is the beautiful and amazing question that the show asks. The story revolves around Fuwa Aika, a philosophy obsessed picture of perfection, and her brother (Fuwa Mahiro) and his best friend (Yoshino Takigawa). (I do not consider this a spoiler since it happens in the first few ...

  • 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 ...
