anime review: Guin Saga

Promo Pic

I stumbled onto this series by reading Japanator’s recommendation post. While I was in a desperate need for a good fantasy anime, I decided to give this a chance. As I was watching it, my attention’s been sold within the first min of the prologue. Guin is introduced as someone who has no memories of himself and somehow ended up with a leopard head but he’s got the brains to gather an army of his own and super strength to handle anything that’s thrown at him. Geez, where I have seen this before? His character archetype bears a striking similarity towards another fantasy anime that starts with a “U” and ends with an “O”. Anyways, to make this brief, this is a very good show. It’s got interesting characters, expansive storyline, great animation, and music composed by Nobuo Uematsu. There is one catch however, it’s a big one. There is no ending. The final episode will leave you hanging for more. Unfortunately, this problem will never be solved because the author died. The novels ran for more than 120 volumes and the anime series only covered the first 16 according to the fans. The novel remains unfinished though. But for what it is, Guin Saga is still worth the watch.
