  • 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!

  • 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, ...

    best show I've seen in a very long time.
    I put off watching this show for some time. When I did go back and watch it though it became obvious I was missing out on something amazing. The art style and writing are executed perfectly. The characters have strong personalities that you're not likely to forget and the show as a whole keeps you screaming for more.This show turned out to be so much more than I imagined it would be and I can ...

    Predictable, But Good
    Very few shows can be this predictable while still being entertaining. The series wraps up very quickly in the last episode or two, and you know pretty much exactly what's going to happen far ahead of time. I don't think that it was their intention to pull any real surprises. However, the show is still entertaining due to decent story telling, good voice acting, and good lead characters. ...

    Fans of action should stay away from this one
    Ok so this anime tries to sell you early on with nice action scenes and great art, but eventually drags its feet over the same issues throughout the entire series. I found myself bored and confused most of the time mainly because there was A LOT of debate, planning and just overall talking. Theres even a fight scene with one of the main characters talking the entire fight, and showing very little ...

    Review for Blast of Tempest
    I finished Blast of Tempest a while ago and really liked it. I know there are a couple of reviews already done, but I would like to express my opinion in regard to this anime as well.

    Blast of Tempest is a fantasy, action, drama, mystery, and in a sense, romantic anime. This anime in my opinion is very Shakespearean styled. What do you mean by that you ask? Well I would go into that in a ...

    What part of this was believable?
    Okay... so first episode left a REALLY good impression with the twists and turns as well as the amazing fight scenes, sadly, those feelings weren't enough to carry me through all the stuff that was about to happen. This show kinda takes the shounen approach of boss battles as well as the ending having all the characters team up to fight the last boss but what disappointed me most was how long ...

    You need to see this!
    Very emotionally complex and psychologically driven characters. The Development of the plot as well as the characters is beyond amazing in this short but sweet series, not to mention the art is so detailed, symbolic and beautiful. Has romance and genuine intensity but that is minor compared to what exactly the story represents, and depicts about the very notion of the world that we all live in. ...

    The Best of Studio Bones
    This is the single greatest thing to come out of Bones. Everything about the show. The pacing of the show is perfect. Every single character in the show is incredibly diverse and each different in their own certain way. Much of the show is centered around Shakespearean plays making it quite unique. Blast of Tempest is a story of revenge Mahiro has swore revenge on his sister Aika Fuwa's killer. ...
