Ratings & Reviews
Don't let her escape again...seriously.
This came out back around the time that .Hack was popular (...I think) and the art style is a pleasant blend of traditional Fantasy but with a really nice "hidden techno" flair.
It's good. Really, really good. It has the traditional "the world hates/fears the chosen one" back story, which at the time, wasn't as common. This show also really twists that plot into character development over "becoming more badass through angst" which is a nice change of pace.
Without spoilers, there's an arc in this series that is absolutely heartbreaking and powerful all at once. Even in light of the overall plot, which isn't very....nice ....to it's characters.
The Magic is convincingly built into the world, and the animation has only a few poor moments. Fanservice is about average for a fantasy show back then.
Great Fantasy Series!

At first I got hooked by the charming characters and the chemistry between them, but I loved that the world has a personality of its own. The magic system stems from how the world is set up. It starts out with swords and magic but later on sprinkles some mecha fights into the mix. That may sound jarring, but it is done in a way that feels natural because of how the world is set up. It totally could’ve expanded into a second season, but you won’t be left feeling unresolved at the end. It’s definitely worth being in your collection.
A gem of a show, it doesn’t get enough attention.
One time I borrowed this gem of a series from my friend while I was in High school. I watched all of it during a weekend. I had that blasted bag piped opening tune memorized. I happen to see that it got a rerelease and I bought it. Again I decided to watch it and I couldn’t take a break. I managed to marathon it all in a span of two days. The story is interesting as well as the characters and the twists that happen. My favorite being Leo. For an advent fan like myself don’t let this fantasy gem pass you by.
A world controlled and reset
This is definitely a great anime, Bandai originally licensed it, thus, it was a Bang Zoom! dub. Either way, the excellent English dub from Bang Zoom! would put this anime on my recommended watch list for those who never usually watch anime.
