Arata Kangatari

Every 30 years, a new princess is chosen from the Hime family to serve the Hayagami. The time has come again, but over these past years, records state not a single female has been born, save for one, the 15-year-old Arata. The only problem is, Arata is actually a male! Forced to disguise himself and take the place of the princess candidate until a formal one can be found, he attends the festival only to witness the current princess, Kokuri-hime, murdered, and his own life is forfeit as well, by the hands of the princess' personal guard, the 12 Shinshou. As he runs for his life, Kannagi of the 12 convinces everyone that Arata is the one who has murdered the princess instead, and now everyone in the Imperial Court is after his head!

    First couple of episodes are not so bad but....

The anime was doing pretty good at first but they skipped all the funny and good parts, nothing in this anime makes sense after a couple of episodes! Why? Because they skipped so much of the manga and tampered with the story. It goes wayy to fast. 

     When i first watched it, things just didn't make sense to me. The anime turned me away from the original manga work because i thought it would be as terrible as this as well. But it WASN'T!!. I urge you to read the manga instead because oh my gosh just so freaking epic! It's amazing and has great potential. I was really upset on why it didn't show up in the anime, it would certainly get more viewers and be just pure epicness!      This needs to be remade or a new season to fix this anime up. I'm not going to mention what characters and tearful situations were skipped due to spoilers but read the manga and find out for yourself, when you become addicted and love this work, you should come back and watch this anime as a loyal fan. I'm sure then you'll understand my disappointment and anger. 

Don't  get me wrong the animation and soundtracks are amazing and opening as well but the script been really tampered with! I hate when anime does this, It could end up either good or bad. 

This work is for the ones who can relate to being bullied,betrayed,what's a true friend? even romance and action.  

     The main character Arata changes to a new school after being bullied however at first things seem great but his old friend Kadowaki fallowed him to his new school to bullied again. Not knowing their friendship got ruined due to a misunderstanding. Having only family for support, primarily his mother and little sister. Wanting to escape to a different place he gets transported to a different world and switches places. They both do their best to try return to their original worlds while trying to save there perspective worlds.

     Full Review (Characters, Plot and Themes!) Long Summary!

Firstly i have read quite a bit of these summaries and before you think that im going to talk about theirs, im not!

First of all im going to talk about the plot! The plot is somewhat exciting and it also tries out new things! This anime especially keeps me edgy and makes me wonder about the producers intentions. Im not trying to sound all big because lets face it, im not. Im just saying this anime keeps you interested. I agree with some of the summaries saying its too undeveloped because the episodes don't look like they are going to last very long but i expect it to last a good long 50+ episodes! Another thing is that the summary DOES tell of the whole first episode and although the first episode DID make people want to re-watch it or continue the anime, i thought it was top notch and hit all the good anime points! (if they exist) The plot does has its good comedy points and also stupid points but over all it would get a star from me, only because of its exciting use of unlimited measures.


The character's have a low development rate. You would think that the main character would have been powered up after watching three episodes of him being a complete coward, but no... not in this anime. The producers or what not have decided to keep us waiting to see him turn into a completely secluded character! (Earth Arata) 

The other Arata has a complete different persona and makes you ant him to think he should be the original *Sho*. Not much about him has been given to us as viewers as we are kept in bay about him but all we know is that he is a pretty strong guy and can kick an athlete in the mouth...

The girls are all but disappointing. The princess is portrayed as a god and just ruins the anime in parts but also makes you wonder what else she is capable of!  over all the characters need to seriously looked into and developed. I as a viewer think that a viewer should develop a bond with an anime character. We don't want to watch a guy's life without knowing anything about him.

Over all it receives all but a four starts which makes it one star! Tricky me! :P


Finally the theme! The theme is seriously boring! The trust issues get boring later in the anime as Arata makes new friends which are a obviously willing their life for him but he still worried! Worried about you ask? Watch the anime and you might found out!

The theme of betrayal is common in all animes, however this one is shown in every single episode! Personally not a fan of it but it does keep me edgy and excited in this anime as i never know who turns on who! This is a top notch usage of betrayal. I think this deserves a star too!

 A total of three stars is what i award for the anime itself and the idea and presentation would receive a star too. I wouldn't be watching it if it was somewhat similar to hat i have seen in the anime! It is slowly produced and i can keep rack of the animes graphics! Not in a stupid way but i just realise the extra detail put into some parts!

question:is there going be more then just 5 episodes?,since it kinda would suck if they ended it with just 5 episodes plus it wouldn't be much a anime series if they did that it starting to look interesting.

   Incredibly average

First off, I'm gonna spoil the premise of the first episode, which is espected, the summary already gives that away, which isn't a bad thing, but the summary is supposed to just point out points, but the entire first episode is basically the summary, that's not anyone's fault at the site, it's the anime's, the first, second, and third episode is basically one scene to the next, with little to no context, back story, or character development, which basically BREAKS any meaningful connection to this anime.  It's like going "HERE'S THE IDEA OF THE ANIME, OKAY NOW LOOK AT IT AND LIKE IT"; It shoehorns a ton of side story's, without much explanation and goes along with it, it expects you to know these character's and what's happened, and it takes awhile for some real connections to be made with the side characters or the lore itself. 

Onto the actual characters both Arata's are actually kind of cool when presenting them the first time, but their other traits kinda put them off, such as the Earth Arata's self-loathing is constantly reoccurring within each episode, the other Arata is cliche in his "Self-Righteous Hero" persona, although he is amusing to watch, putting in some comic relief once in awhile.  

 All in all, it's something I'll drop if it's a 12-episode anime, and knowing my laziness, I won't search to find out if it is.  

I don't think it belongs in the big-three, if anything "The Severing Crime Edge" should be there, there's some real characterization if you were looking for some of that, also just throwing out the anime "Daily life of Highschool Boys", unrelated to this review, but if you want to laugh, watch it.

     Arata Kangatari

I have watched this since it first came out a few weeks ago. I find it fascinating however, for someone who doesn't like old style drawings, I do find it a little outdated. I quite like the story though and also the characters. It has quite little action in it at the moment, on the other hand, the story picks that up, it does keep you on edge. This is a story of betrayal and trust. If you like the old style of drawings then I'm sure you'll like this.
