The English-dub voice actor for the character of Mars is Spike Spencer. Spencer later voiced the character of Excellus in the Fire Emblem video game, Fire Emblem: Awakening, for the Nintendo 3DS. See more »
I am one of the few American fans of the Fire Emblem video game series, and those games are unbearably epic (Especially the latest, Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS). This anime is based upon the first game game in the series, only released in Japan for the original NES, but rebooted for the Nintendo DS and released overseas (sub-titled: Shadow Dragon). The story follows the young prince Mars (Called Marth in the game), who had to escape his homeland of Atria(Altea in the game) after it was conquered by an evil wizard commanded by the Shadow Dragon, Medeus (same name as in the game). This is the basic plot at the beginning of the game as well. After escaping, Mars starts a life in a new Kingdom. This was an island called "Talys" in the game,but I don't remember the name in the anime. The story of the two-episodes loosely follows the prologue chapters of the game, and then follows the first, second, and third chapters of the game fairly well. Some of my favorite characters from the beginning of the game appeared in the anime, and the story was well-adapted, I think. Now, there are only there things about this anime that I didn't like: The plasticy hair, some of the voice-acting, and the fact that it was not continued. It ends very abruptly, basically just when the story was getting good. I was very sad that it was not continued, but I will give it nine stars, nonetheless, because it was still well-made and will appeals to all sorts of Fire Emblem fans.
