  • 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 ...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Anime with Shakespeare Elements
    The first episode was definitely an attention grabber but the series does kind of stall as for as plot progression is concerned til about episode 10 ish but that's definitely not a reason you shouldn't watch this anime; The way they tied things together with Shakespeare's "Tempest" and "Hamlet" also makes this above par. The classical compositions in the anime are very nice as well; almost ...

  • 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.

    Been in a three way tie for my all time favorite anime since it came out
    I'm a 26 male in the US and I consider this anime in a tie for my all time favorite, along with From the New World and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

    I recommend this show to older high school age, especially college age, and adult. This is NOT for you if you're in the mood for skill-based fighting competitions to compose a significant part of each episode (it's not like Naruto or Bleach). ...

  • 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!

  • 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 ...
