Helmed by Japanese director Fumihiko Sori, this tells the swashbuckling story of a young heroine named Cassandra, whose bravery is put to the test, when she is caught between the battling forces of templars, mages and dragons alike. Now, let me start off by saying that I haven't played any of the Dragon Age games, so consider this review the unbiased low-down of someone who is completely unfamiliar with said fantasy realm. Even so, I quite enjoyed this animated adventure. The story is rather formulaic and employs all the standard elements of the genre, with themes of gallantry, betrayal and classic good vs. evil fare. So nothing new there. What makes it worthy of your time though, is the good voice acting and overall well-paced and enjoyable plot. The animation per se, albeit stiff at times and a bit on the budget side, is pretty well-done and agreeable to the eyes. Particularily with its implementation of the technique known as "cell-shading", which was a very nice touch. A decent and straightforward sword-and-sorcery flick, that despite a commonplace setup, entertains, excites and holds your interest throughout. So not to worry if you're a stranger to the Dragon Age games, because this is accessible to anyone with a taste for adventure!
Anime about a group of dragon hunters. I couldn't get into it. I didn't think it was horrible, maybe it was the anime (nothing special). The characters were blah. It just felt stale.
