    Generic to say what?
    Okay okay, so I am a snooty PoS when it comes to anime now, I have expectations of writing and portrayal. This is written when the first 4 "episodes" are out of this weird movie format show.

    1.
    This show is released with the clear expectation that you are already invested in the game that the IP is from, it does nothing to teach you about what is this world and just drops you in.

    Perfectly Watchable even without knowing what this is.
    Spectacular fight scenes.
    Crisp, cleananimation.
    Unique and likeable characters.
    Enough information given to know where the story is going and how they got there.

    It is perfectly fine to watch this with no prior knowledge of the franchise.

    This is not a captivating conspiracy or political maneuvering plot-twisting thriller. Its just a pure straight up fantasy fighting action ...

    A super-shiny race to the red light anime
    Chain Chronicle is a hyper-staged example of what I like to call a race to the red light. You may have been driving down a street, and have someone race past you, cut you off, then slam on their brakes as the light was red the entire time. Another example is those morons who stand up the second their plane lands on the tarmac--like they are going to be able to rush to the front of the plane ...

    Quick but satisfying
    WARNING: This anime is not a standalone series.
    It is primarily based on a JP mobile game. Prior to the events of this anime there was a very short animation that follows the events of before the story set here. With that said, I am reviewing this haven't watched the anime set before this one. Here is more information about it: ...

    fantasy geeks will love it!
    As someone who loves fantasy, and I mean bleeds fantasy. This gave me my long missing as far as current anime goes fantasy fix. Now that said its definitely not perfect, story jumps around quite a bit. The characters.... Boy-o-boy does it have a ton of characters, which are basically provided no back story for at all. This leaves you feeling as if this is more of a 50 ep series than a movie imo. ...

    This deserves better ratings!
    Give it time, watch all four episodes. It wont dissappoint. It moves very quickly, there are a lot of characters, and a lot happening at once, yes this is true. But... the story line is exciting, the animation is stunning, I love the characters, particularity Aram and Yuri, however the sages are awesome too. We have magic, mana, awesome fight scenes, elves, fairies, coupled with stellar art and ...

    Not worth it in my opinion.
    The animation and music in Chain Chronicle are both excellent; if only the same could be said for the characters and plot. I'm ordinarily a pretty big fan of fantasy anime, but the show gets too many things wrong for me to feel like it was worth my time to watch it. Chain Chronicle is evidently based on a mobile game and it shows: the abilities used by characters look like power-ups from a ...

    GIVE IT A CHANCE! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED
    Please give this anime a chance. At first I thought of it as something I can kill a bit time with but it quickly drew me in.
    In addition to what the other positive reviewers have said:
    It drops you into the thick of things from the start, something most anime don't do.
    Rather than wait(at times waste) several episodes or an entire season for world building, character development, etc. for the ...

    The show stands on it's own,its well written, good character development , excellent animations
    This is an engaging fantasy with good animations and memorable, well-developed characters. I entirely disagree with the viewpoint that this is not understandable because it starts at the "boss battle" (it does start there). This is clearly not your typical fantasy that moves from point A-->B. Those that don't enjoy the creative license of a well-written tale should stay away from this one. The ...

    High potential, high disappointment
    Pros: Above average animation, HUGE cast of fairly interesting looking characters, unusual bard girl sings a pretty catchy song

    Cons: Boring, predictable story; tropes abound; what few characters get development are infuriating

    Review:
    My wife and I were very excited at the prospect of a new, well animated fantasy anime. Unfortunately, good animation is all this series has going for it. ...
