Le Chevalier d'Eon takes place in feudal France during the reign of Louis XV, when whispers of revolution float through the country. The story begins with a lonely coffin drifting in the great river Seine into Versailles - one word written upon it: "Psalms". Inside is the perfectly preserved body of Lia de Beaumont, a beautiful French diplomat and the older sister of young knight d'Eon de Beaumont. Torn by his sister death, but sworn to his duties to the king, d'Eon is unable to properly mourn his sister's death. Instead, he continues to work as part of an organization called "Secret du Roi" (The King's Secret), investigating a series of women's disappearances across the country. It revealed that their disappearances are more than what they seem. d'Eon learns that they are linked to his sister's death by the Psalms.

Under orders from the king and accompanied by his four comrades, d'Eon de Beaumont sets out to Russia, the place where his sister was last seen alive, to determine the cause of her death and carry out his sister's work, involving a book containing the "Psalms of the King", in hopes of allowing her wandering soul to rest in peace. As they delve deeper, they discover the shocking truth that lies behind and that the mystical power of the Psalms will determine the future of beloved France forever.

Kukuru's Le Chevalier D'Eon Tv Review

Rated: 9

It's been almost a year since I've watched any anime, never mind something new. Nothing really seemed to catch my interest. I mean sure, I enjoy a good mecha battle or demon battle as much as the next anime lover, even the odd high school-hero romance; but I longed for something different: I just didn't know what.

Then I was channel flicking one day and landed on episode 11 of a new show entitled "Le Chevalier d'Eon" It wasn't a particular fantastic episode; middle episodes generally never are - and yet something about it captured my interest.

To determine whether it was worth watching for the beginning, I hit the net and was met with comments like: 'Fast, Thrilling: Chevalier is a must have' and 'Hands down, one of the best anime to come out of 2007.

Truly a wonderful series by the animation studio, Production IG. I loved the mysterious intrigue of the series and how all the pieces of the puzzle came together by the time the climax of the series came about. I was quite surprised in some parts, especially near the end. I saw the series in the English dub, and the roles were casted well and the voice acting was brilliant, especially David Matranga's performance as D'Eon de Beaumont. Although I wasn't fond of the supernatural stuff in this series and it did take too much liberties concerning the historical figure Maximilien Robespierre in this fictionalized take on pre-French Revolution events that didn't make sense to me.

I was immediately attracted by the fact that here dealt with the historical theme (excluding how plausible it is reflected). Also in the anime very rare events occur in France (Britain and Italy dominated). Mystical touch of history, too, has an effect. True, the ending of the anime fatality for all the characters left the depressive impression :(

It's a serious anime, and it's definitely not for you if you're chasing for something light and amusing.
This series got heavy mysteriousness going on and lots of sadness as well, it got plot and the graphic are good.

I bought this along with Lupin III Episode 0: First Contact at my first anime convention back in May. I've watched episode one on YouTube, and I loved the animation. So since it was only $20 I thought "why not" and bought it. I was a little nervous at first because I thought it was a little boring, but it quickly picked up towards the end of disc 2. I didn't know this until after I finished the show, but the majority of the main characters are based on real people back in that time period. I think the DVDs come with historical background notes, so this information might have been in that bonus feature, I just haven't watched those yet. Anyway, if you're into history at all you might consider watching this show since it's set during Louis XIV's reign.

It's hard to understand anything if you're not paying attention to this series properly.
For me, the plot are great and so are the characters. The artwork, well, it's looks beautiful for me, so no issue there.
There's a lot of sadness in this series, and some of the characters deserve a better ending.
I wasn't expecting the ending, but I think that's the best ending for this series.

It has an interesting storyline, full of misteries and conspiracy. I liked the plot (it's based on real historical figures, during the 18th century, on a pre-Revolutionary France), but I was hopping for a happy ending and got disappointed when I haven't. After thinking on it, I realize that's exactly the end that makes this anime invulgar and worth seeing. "Blind and total loyalty is a grotesque thing" as Guillermo del Toro once said. As a negative point I just have to mention that the character design could be better.

I'm watching the series on TV, it's aired on friday two episodes at times. The art is good and I like the music so much, especially the ending and the opening. I don't have a favorite character but I like D'Eon and Duran ^v^ We've reached episode 16, so I decide if I really like the series after the last episode, for now I'll give it a "8".
EDIT: The serie is finished. The ending was well, so-so? It's not that I didn't like it, but I didn't not like it either. Hard to say.
In the last episodes I liked a little the character of Maximillian. Overall, I think 8 is a good rate for this anime. Oh, and I loved the pairing Maximillian x Lia XD

Gorgeous style, character designs and animation. Story is a little bit weird in spots, and the ending wasn't to my taste. Highly recommended, but don't watch it if you're looking for a happy story, because it isn't happy.

Also, VERY, VERY nicely choreographed fight scenes. A+

A very beautiful anime, I highly recomend it. An interesting historic anime and a unique take on the French Revolution. A little gorey but nothing too bad. The dubbing is very good as well. I also recomend the manga.
