Blade and Soul

I am loving this so far. So what if I get distracted by a couple of wobbling breasts every now and then? It’s so graphic and violent… It’s hard-core, man! I think Attack on Titan was the last anime I’ve seen that was as graphic as this. It also reminds me a bit of Zetman, another masterpiece to member.

Blade and SoulThe artwork is very good. You can clearly tell that they put a lot of work into it. It’s by no means a budget production and I have high hopes for it. I pretty much like all of the characters so far. A lot of unique features and very interesting personalities.

The story, well… It’s nothing special. I’m sure it’s been done a lot. A powerful warrior runs away after supposedly killing someone important, causing many powerful people to chase after said warrior until either party is dead. So maybe it’s not all that unique… Who cares?

I do recommend this. Look past the breasts. Look past the erotic-style comedy. Look at the big picture here, which would be a great piece with a lot of action. It’s the kind of show that allows for many great twists. I’m looking forward to it!

Plot Summary: Alka is an assassin for the Clan of the Sword. She’s on a journey to find the woman Jin Valel, who killed her master Hon. Jin is a demon-like woman who controls the Energy of Chaos and kills without feeling – not unlike how Alka has learned to kill in her work as an assassin. On her journey, Alka encounters three strange women, each great warriors in their own right, and grapples with her slain master’s wish that she leave the life of an assassin behind.
