A military strategy and mind-game fueled show that follows in the steps of the Legend of Galactic Heroes just in a “southeastern-feeling” fantasy world. Unfortunately, the anime itself feels more like a prologue to a far grander story that might never even reach us.
Alderamin is nonetheless a show with the most potential I’ve seen in years, and if it continues, I would not be that surprised to see it attain a 5/5 rating by the end, but now, I feel just like after watching a very cool trailer.
|Pretty cool animation||Feels more like a prologue or a long trailer than a full fledged show|
|A vast, fascinating setting with a southeastern vibe||Some characters, especially the smaller villains are very one dimensional|
|Interesting, mature leading characters||A few contrived situations here and there, but nothing too upsetting|
|The writer understands military strategy|
|Good, relatively fast pace|
|Some pretty effective dramatic scenes|
|Thought-provoking on war in general|
