Plot Summary


A sorcerer who was once the top student of the famous Tower of Fang, now spends his time chasing around his hopeless clients as a moneylender, at least until his client comes up with a plan to make money: marriage fraud. Unwillingly being dragged in to the plan, Orphen encounters a monster who has long been his goal since the day he left the Tower of Fang. Between those who seek to kill the monster and Orphen, giving everything to protect the monster, his lousy but peaceful days end. Trying to turn back his sister, Azalie, back to her true form leads to many more mysteries and the key to the secret to the world.

The first episode is now up on Funimation: https://www.funimation.com/shows/sorcerous-stabber-orphen/a-vestige-of-the-past/?qid=

This is a remake of the original 90's series, so it's not necessary to watch that before watching this.

Episode 1

So it begins with a quick rundown on what happened prior to Orphen taking on his currently identity of Orphen, and he's going around making money and a name for himself after leaving the academy. He takes up a job going into Cleao's place, and she gets attacked by a dragon, who just so happens to be Orpen's foster sister Azalie, who has been transformed into a dragon. Well, that was a passable start as while there were plenty of issues, at least the story could be interesting. I never watched the original series, so I am not in a position to compare things, but nevertheless I'll give it a couple more episodes.

Not bad for the opening song.

Orphen has a personality that I hope I can get used to. They introduced the idea of magic and didn't hold back on some of the fighting scenes in the first episode. Cleao Everlasting is also introduced and she has a tomboyish-like personality. Cute girl.

Pretty much an introductoy episode but it has my interest somewhat for now. I haven't seen the original series either so coming into this anime fresh.

I wish Funimation would just scrap FunimationNow and have a competent streaming service like Hulu run their service for them.

It is hard to root for anybody in this anime. I have no reason to invest any emotion into any of them. 3 episode rule is in effect.

First episode did nothing to quell my surprise at this getting a new adaptation in 2020.

I've already seen the first one so I probably won't be sticking with this.

Am I the only one who finds Orphen's VA to be incredibly annoying? Almost Early Black Clover Asta like.

I'm not even sure WTF is going on at this point.....

That certainly felt very 90s anime.

It always annoys me when you have a medieval fantasy setting but you also have characters running around in modern clothing for some reason. Still, I'm willing to stick with this at least for a little while.
