CyanideBlizzard's Seiken no Blacksmith Tv Review

Rated: 6

Unfortunately, The Sacred Blacksmith is a mess when it comes to presentation. Having not read the manga or novels, I cannot say if the story is done the same as it was in the anime. However, I can definitely say the anime is almost unwatchable if you absolutely hate plot holes and useless filler. While the first act of the series is brilliantly constructed, it does run somewhat slow. Despite this, there is no lack of depth or plot progression. Sadly, during episodes 6-9, we are introduced to Charlotte E. Firobisher and her three servants/bodyguards; Doris, Margot and Penelope. These episodes would best be described as filler at its absolute worst. What's worse is in the 9th episode, there is a scene that the viewer is forced to view that left me completely boggled and dumbfounded.

The story takes place after an abominable war that foisted a "devil's contract" upon a land. Cecily Campbell, a former noble's daughter who joined a knighthood, encounters a man who dispatches some hoodlums with one sweep of a mysterious sword. The man possesses the power of the same "devil's contract" that has become taboo, now that peace has been restored. Cecily has been searching for a blacksmith who can repair an old sword she inherited from her father, and that mysterious young man happens to be blacksmith named Luke. This encounter launches their adventures together.

The three filler episodes killed the show for me and I could tell the ending was rushed. I really wanted to enjoy this, and in the beginning I did, but by the end I was left feeling disappointed and confused.

Not in awhile have I ever been so frustrated by a scene in an anime series before. While the series picks up steam once again for the remainder, a lot of critical plot elements are left out and the show is left on a cliff-hanger. This is especially noticed during the final two episodes, as certain events that happen will have you scratching your head wondering, "Why is this happening?" When you have a show that short and you waste a good portion of it on filler, it just kills the series and I hate when shows do that. That very thing happened here. Since there is no future plans, for a second season, we are left feeling betrayed, and frankly since the ending felt so rushed I'm not sure I would be happy at the thought of a sequel.

relationships between characters not explained well. the purpose of the main male not explained well. the feelings between the pairs not clear enough. some characters just jumped out from nowhere and left swiftly thereafter. ending was abrupt, many questions remain in story. If only there's a second season. seiyuu ok, felt like the whole thing was in a rush.

The Storyline Is Indeed My Style xD I Love The Concept Of Medieval Age And Magic Together, Really Gives Off A Fairytale Feel x3 The Only Thing Is That The Ending Is Not As Satisfying, They Could've Done Better And Made The Battles More Intense. Would Love To See A Season Two Where Luke Gets His Own Demon Sword xD That Would Be Awesome ~

There still quite a bit of mystery about the plot, even though they are 11 episodes into the series I still feel as though we have a long way to go before we actually get to the main antagonist. Regardless however, the most recent episodes gave us huge insight into what appears to be an actual plot! So far though, the characters are pretty interesting and the animation is pretty high quality stuff...even though you do notice it dips during combat.
