Apart, realistic, romantic, mysterious
31 December 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

A very skilled, but lonely and (too) nice, but clumsy swordsman keeps losing his job until he meets the leader of the "Five Leaves". But there is much hidden from the past of this what-seems-to-be a quiet thief, it seems. And he is not the only one. A plot full of secrets uncovered in different kind-of-hero thievery stories, but with a remaining sense of mystery and doubt. (Just as life usually is?) Are these group of people heroes or lousy thieves, or maybe just people trying to survive? I think everyone watching it would think different. ----- This is not an action movie at all, rather kind of zen with a touch of mischief and melancholy, mixed with a note that would say "the sun will rise again tomorrow" . ----- The drawings and animations are fluid and artistic, rather impressionistic than colored "between the lines". Together with the mostly calm music, this series is a piece of brilliance!
