TL;DR Review

The Legend of the Legendary Heroes revolves around many characters but mainly focuses on Ryner, Ferris, and Sion. I don’t know if the series title is a pun or play on word. It should have gone all the way and called it “The Heroicly Heroic Legend of the Heroic Legendary Heroes”.

The animation is good, but not exceptionally good. The animation is fluid and detail enough, but not something I would rave about. Almost look like your typical bi-shonen style. During the mid-season, one of the fight scenes just completely changed the style and the animation has that distorted motion.

Same with the animation quality, the music is good, but not exceptionally good. Most of the songs do sound a bit similar so unless you hear them back to back, you may still be confused if they were the same songs. Kidding aside, the stand out ending theme is “Truth Of My Destiny” by Ceui. There were some other notable insert songs too.

This fantasy world’s lore and politic are intriguing. It’s not overly deep or overly simple. It gives you enough information to get a sense of how vast it is, but not to the point you become confused and bored.

Individually, the show is at best average on the animation, music, plot, and character development. But combine them all together, you have a great show. This is one of those cases where the quote “The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts” best applied.

The first season feels like it is prepping us for a much more epic second season. Unfortunately, we are unlikely to see another season since it had been over 8 years.

One negative I have with this anime is the comedy is a bit jarring. It tends to be an over the top comedy bits and sometimes repeated over-used gag. I wish they had tone the comedy down a bit.

Though this is my second time watching this series, I still binge and devour the entire season in one sitting. This is one of the lesser talked about series which I highly recommend. The Legend of the Legendary Heroes contains graphic violence and mild suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences.
