I’ll be the first to say that I’m not the most difficult person to please when it comes to my anime. If you want to rehash a cool concept and use it again and again, I’m usually pretty cool with that as long as it’s well written with some interesting characters. However, every so often I, like most people, hypothesise on what would make for a great story and it was when I was watching Tales of Zestiria the X that an idea last crossed my mind.
Without turning this into a review of the two cour series, suffice it to say, Tales of Zestiria is a 24 episode series that follows the journey of Sorey from country bumpkin to saviour of the world. It’s an emotionally charged, action packed coming-of-age tale with some beautiful animation and a colourful palette that makes for generally enjoyable viewing.
