not that bad!!!
21 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I'm surprised by the negative feedback I've been reading and hearing about this series. Do not compare it with series like 'Xena' or 'Sinbad', because this is obviously a different attempt for fantasy/adventure. Sure, the story has nothing to do with the real Tell, so what? At least the main character doesn't behave like an invincible hero. I believe that, in a kingdom like Kryll, it's okay to have crystal arrows, wizards, rebels, faeries, and wolf-men... Those of you looking for some kick-ass fighting scenes will be disappointed, because that's not the point of the series. The characters of Aruna and of Leo were very well performed, despite the sometimes thin dialogue. I would say this is not bad, if not compared to other fantasy/adventure series. And the theme song is somewhat appealing.
