Le Chevalier D’Eon
Alex: Le Chevalier D’Eon is a story based on a true tale.
It revolves around knights of France, corruption,the workings of government and politics, kings and queens and noblemen, dark cults, and magic.
If any bone in your body is excited by the possibility of a tale reaching into the depths of history,then you should definitely give this anime a try.
I won’t talk about the tale itself, because it’s written like a book, perfectly unraveling bit by bit, dragging the viewer deeper and deeper into the world of France.It may start a little slowly, but there’s more than enough to get you interested and as it gets better and better, your interest doesn’t flicker in the slightest.I think this could be the fastest i’ve ever marathoned a series, to be honest.
The utter attention to detail is astounding. The characters may not be as well designed as several of these modern ones,but the animation and background detail is stunning. Absolutly stunning. There are several swordfights throughout,and the choreography throughout is astounding.The characters dance along with the swords, and the fights look like something amazingly realistic. Moving onto the background art, it really feels like you travel from France, to Russia, to England, and then back to France.
I’m unlikely to forget the brilliant characters anytime soon, either. The dashing Durand, who would be akin to a gentleman, following orders and protecting his friends. The loyal Teillagory, a knight of old.The Young Robin, greatly looking up to Lia and D’Eon, and finally, D’Eon himself. An instantly likeable character on a journey to find the truth behind his sister’s strange death. And then there are the other characters involved throughout the whole series; non of them feeling old or dull or clichéd ,all of them helping the amazing tale to progress perfectly.
The end…was uh…different to what I expected. I will say that. But it was a really fitting ending to a tale, even though it may be a slightly f’d up ending, if you’ll pardon my language. It really, really did suit the tale, and that’s all that counts, I suppose. It’s nice how they closed the tale in a way that remained true to history.
