The Legend of the Legendary Hero (Anime) Impression

The Legend of the Legendary Hero (Densetsu no Yusha no Densetsu) (2010)
Format: TV Series, 26 X 22 minutes
Studio: Zexcs
Potential: 1-2 stars
Summary: While I can see it improving, right now it is just utterly boring. Its attempt at humour fails to impress on what is supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek homage to epic hero stories.

Our hero (who happens to have some mysterious power) is searching for lost relics of Legendary Heroes.

At times like this, I don't even know where to begin. There's nothing truly bad about this show, but there isn't a single good point either.Some might mildly enjoy it, but no one will ever say they like this series.

Zexcs is extremely hit or miss. Chrome Shelled Regios started off with a very impressive first episode, but ended up like crap. In the middle ground we have Macademi Wasshoi! and Chu-Bra!!, both of which were mindless ecchi shows that weren't completely crap, but not any good either. All the way on the other end, we have Ichigo Mashimaro, Kamichu!, Mushi-shi, and Speed Grapher; all of which were excellent shows in their own ways. Some might be "wow-ed" by the production quality of this first episode, but I felt that it was just a lot of fancy effects with no real animation talent.

Sorry Zexcs, but this is definitely one of your worst.
