A fun series featuring a pretty knight and her magical sword
13 July 2010 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

This fun series is centred on Cecily Campbell a young night living in a free trade city. At the start of the series she is very determined but also somewhat lacking in ability, her sword is broken in a fight and she is rescued by Luke Ainsworth who is both a skilled swordsman and a master blacksmith. She wants him to make a new sword for him but she can't afford the price, luckily she soon come into possession of a new sword, it isn't a usual sword though. It is a demon sword which has two unusual traits; it has magical properties and can take human form, its human form, Aria, becomes a close friend of Cecily's. Over the course of the series the three of them have several battles, frequently against other people armed with demon swords. As the series concludes some surprising truths are revealed and dangers confronted which left a somewhat open ending conclusion. I've tried to keep the plot description as basic as possible so as not to spoil it for anybody who has yet to see it.

At first I wasn't sure what to make of this series which is populated fairly cute characters which made me think it was probably aimed at a young audience. However the story seemed fun and the characters were likable so I stuck with it. I'm not sure why it has a TV-MA rating on Funimation's YouTube channel as there in nothing in it that would be unsuitable to teenagers; there is some violence but nothing too gory and sexual content is limited to a few comments about the comparatively large size of Cecily's breasts, there is a small amount of nudity but I don't recall seeing anything inappropriate for the younger viewer. The ending did seem a little too open ended, I hope that was just to leave things open for a second series.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
