The main character is Cecily a strong female knight who wants to *better* herself. She realises her flaws and wants to improve, and at the same time protect those around her. She encounters Luke a blacksmith and demands he make her a sword, Luke is assisted by a young girl with the name Lisa).
Sacred Blacksmith explores a lot of things, such as Drama, Romance, Action and Adventure, the fun point of this series is the relationship between Luke and Cecily, they at first come accross as rather shy/angst around one another but open up to the point of perhaps romance?(You will have to judge).
There is a lot of Drama here with various characters that come into conflict with Luke and Cecily and the areas they live in, there's a main bad guy, even if his backstory is weak.
Worth noting, this series does not have an ending. The Japanese studio who made didn't think to adapt more of this series, not to worry though, if you don't mind an open ended anime, this is good for you.
Contains some nudity(Cecily loses her chest plate thus her boobs get exposed, they're big anyway and shes of legal age).
I liked this series, and I fully reccomend to those looking for a decent fantasy/adventure/drama show to watch. The dub is good too, contains English/Japanese Audio + Subtitles.
The storyline doesn't have that complete 'internal logic' that the best animes possess, where, within the confines of the story everything makes sense.. there are too many loose ends here and unexplained elements. Now maybe I expect too much from a cartoon, but having seen so many brilliant anime series I've learned to be discriminating.
The graphics in this series are not of a very high standard either to my eye, there are a lot of much better examples elsewhere so I was a bit disappointed with the quality of artwork, which seemed rather clumsy in it's execution to me.. I was reminded a bit of another series 'Walkure Romanze' because of the armour etc, though WR was more fun.
Overall, although I was happy to watch 'The Sacred Blacksmith' I wouldn't be bothered to see it again as there are much better series out there. I'm gonna say only 2 stars from me, by which I mean it's pretty much average.. i've decided to be harder on star ratings cos there's a lot of 5 star product out there but this, by comparison with say Magi or SAO and other great stories, is way down the ladder of achievement. It was okay for a one-time-watch but I certainly wouldn't bother buying it.. not a keeper! 2 Star.. Px :))x
For the most part the series story is well written and interesting with a good sense of humour, even if the show ends up being nothing particularly special or deep. The central fantasy-style theme is well used, but covers little new ground in the genre. The episode structure is made up of several mini arcs, most containing themes that run throughout the entire series. At times the pacing of these episodes can feel rather slow, such as the arc dealing with Charlotte E. Firobisher and her team, but most hold interest. Many will find the conclusion disappoint due to how open ended it is and how little we know of the enemies at hand, but I think it was done for the idea of a second series (Will that happen? Nothing yet...) and from a character point of view the conclusion worked rather well as a conclusion.
Cecily is an enduring main character; you really do sympathise with her and will her on in her attempts to get stronger and prove herself. Luke is a bit different from your usual male lead, he ends up being not as annoying a character as you would first think and fascinates with a dark backstory.Read more ›
Based on a series of light novels, `The Sacred Blacksmith' is an entertaining series with some nice action, comedy and drama. Although I haven't read the light novels yet, I have read some chapters of the manga and although it does a reasonable job, I still think I prefer the manga. Much of the anime seems to follow what I remember from the manga, with a few changes here and there, but it does start to deviate towards the end of the series. The action and animation of the series are both well done while the characters and setting are interesting and quite funny in places. The series does have some nudity here and there but most of the fanservice seems to centre on everyone's obsession with Cecily's breasts.
On the downside the series is quite short, with the twelve episodes of here being all there is to the series, and it does take a few episodes to get good. Once it does get going though, the series is quite entertaining and well worth around four stars.
