Historical Fiction The Likes of Which You've Never Seen Before

by

It is very rare to see a historically based anime show whether it's fiction or facts based that is not about Feudal Japan, and that's what makes Le Chevalier D'Eon so special. Other than the distant cousin, The Rose of Versailles, Le Chevalier delves brazenly into European history of 18th century and creates a historical fantasy with supernatural twist that feels so real. I first saw this gem on Netflix and immediately fell in love with the show. Another masterpiece from the makers of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Le Chevalier D'Eon is absolutely amazing and engrossing. A real treat for me to see anime masterfully intertwine history with mysticism, fiction and magic. The writers creatively based the story on historical facts without going over the top. I loved how they took Psalms and turned them into 'dark magic' that only select few could master – poets; it clearly showed the tragedy and irony of how something good could be twisted into evil. The anime has a rich and intense storyline with plenty of action, political games, intrigues, espionage, suspense, mystery, drama, constantly twisting and turning so that I couldn't sit back from the edge of the seat, never knowing what to expect, wanting to know what happens next. The script and dialogues were complex and deep. The series brilliantly showed the opulence of Versailles and its inhabitants, the obliviousness of the royalty and aristocracy of the time to the turbulence going on in the country leading to the decay and destruction of Monarchical France. The clothing, royal palaces and landscapes were amazingly accurate and beautiful detailed. The well-choreographed breathtaking and brilliantly detailed sword fights were artfully done never devolving into something unrealistic or over the top and the magic duels were just as intense and intriguing – a tribute to the limitless possibilities of anime. The characters were complex, introspective and the suspense of not knowing their alliances, loyalties, views, convictions or intentions until the very end just added to the depth of the show. The characters' personalities were perfectly evoked by the voice overs and the music enhanced the mood of the scenes so that I could close my eyes and still feel like I was there. The creators made a good usage of CGI to reproduce the vast, opulent spaces of Versailles as well as other landscapes. The series opening and ending credits music was very beautiful, haunting and heart wrenching. Engaging plot, beautiful art and animation, and absolutely no filler episodes! I definitely recommend these series. Six stars from me!

A beautiful fictionalized telling of a true story.

by -

Though this anime plays very loosely with the story of the real Chevalier D'Eon (and after you watch it, do a little research on this fascinating historical figure. The real story of Le Chevalier is so interesting), it's a wonderful fictionalized story. I was utterly captivated with this anime the first time I saw it several years ago, and it still ranks among my favorite anime series. It mixes historical fact with a story filled with mysticism.

In the series, D'Eon is a knight in service to King Louis XV. His sister, Lia, died mysteriously and he is tasked to find out what happened to cause her death, which matched the deaths of several others. Lia haunts D'Eon as he goes on his journey with his companions across France, Russia, and England to find answers.

This series is definitely good for more than one viewing, and being able to get it at a reasonable price like this is a bonus.
