Rokka no Yuusha, or Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers follows the story of Adlet Mayer when the demon Majin awakes from the depths of darkness. The deity of fate then selects six heroes giving them the power to save world from the evil. While Adlet thinks he’s the strongest man in the world, 7 potential heroes gather with the same marking set by the deity, however the seventh is now known as the impostor.
So regarding the whole concept and everything, I loved how the series began, it gathered all the members and thus went on ahead to defeat the demon. I was surprised but how good the series was, and when there were 7 instead of the normal 6 within “Braves”, everyone quickly thought it was Adlet, who then had to prove himself that he wasn’t the one who trapped them and set the traps.
I honestly would have loved to learn more about the demon and how it all interacts and all the nitty-gritty behind the whole concept. However, stepping back and looking at what I initially expected from the show wasn’t really satisfied. Even if the show slowed down quite a bit and introduced a mystery, wasn’t that bad at all.
The anime itself did a brilliant job of building up the suspense in it between the main characters, I personally knew or had some sort of idea who the Seventh was, but throughout the show, I also had the idea that this time there would be Seven Braves and none are fakes. Well, I don’t really want to spoil it for anyone but the show does a decent job of showing everyone’s point of view where it somewhat hides who it is.
The art, well the reason why I love most anime’s is usually the art. I am attracted by great art, and if it’s good with good animation and artwork then I love it. The anime production was done by Studio Passione, who did a fantastic job of creating a brilliant atmosphere.
The anime is definitely good looking, and the characters are definitely designed really well, even some scenes which involves CGI looks a little weird but is done quite well, in my opinion at least. Further to this, a lot of the art at the start of the show shines really well, it’s done fantastically, but begins to drop halfway through, but it is something that most people I think won’t notice.
Along with this, the sound to fit relatively well with the show and suspense which is built up in most of the episodes. But anyways, it’s something that others may find to be different in comparison.
So the characters, well there are 7 different ones who all are different and considered as Braves, with one of them being a fake. They have their own unique personality which I think are portrayed well enough to enjoy the show. So did I enjoy yet? Yes, the show is great, but…
Well there is one think which annoyed me, and this was right at the end of the show. The show ends in the Seventh fake being found out. However, right as it ends, it seems that there is another seventh, whereby one of the other Braves might actually be a fake. This pisses me off so much that I could have rated this show an 8 or 9 even if it began slow, however I’d like to rate this show an:
6.5 out of 10
