The Facts are These:

Discoveries:

The Legend of the Legendary Heroes is an interesting series. The shows main protagonist Ryner Lute is different from the ordinary extremely powerful hero. Instead he is a slacker, but has reasons for why he lives the way he lives. To the point where he preferred to be locked away in jail than to hurt someone by accident. The series is fantasy all the way through and it is fun. The story is good the characters are fun and overall you want more after the series is over.

A Brief View of the World:

The series takes place on the continent of Menoris, mainly in the countries of Roland, Nelpha, Runa, and Estabul. The series is a fantasy show that has a large focus on magic and the history of the world they live in. In the show the heroes look for artifacts known as Rule Fragments or Hero Relics. Items that possess great power, examples of this power would be summoning dragons or or freezing anything it comes into contact with. In the world certain people are born with abilities called stigmas, each stigma gives the wearer a different ability the most common stigma is the Alpha Stigma.

Enjoyment:

This series is enjoyable with a great story and cast. Though the show feels unfinished, with a vague conclusion making you want to know what happens next. That is a shame because I enjoyed the show, but it is hard to recommend.

Rewatchability:

The series is rewatchable with 26 episodes, though there is no real reason to watch the show a second time with there being no second season in sight.

Rating:

7/10

Recommendations:
