Arata Kangatari

Arata: The Legend (アラタカンガタリ 〜革神語〜), a Japanese manga written by Yuu Watase that began serialization in the manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Sunday in 2008. The first volume of the series was released in Japan on January 16, 2009. The series has twenty-three volumes and is still serialized in Shōnen Sunday.The series is Watase’s first shōnen series. An anime TV series adaptation produced by Satelight and Korean studio JM Animation began airing on April 9, 2013.

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!

Story is pretty much cliche, which I find to be one of the “bad parts”. It is a typical shounen “I wanna save the world” storyline, so nothing new. Some powers do seem refreshing and there is some character growth (I believe especially when it comes to Kannagi), but overall the idea is pretty much already used up in countless of similar shows which air every season. I do like the setting and the intersection of two worlds (even though this is deja vu also), so I can’t say that I am a total hater of the story-line. It is not refreshing or innovative, but it is not boring either.
