Tenpou Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi

Ghost Slayers Ayashi / 天保異聞 妖奇士
The series starts out a little episodic (monster of the week, if you will). However, it comes off very well in blending fantasy into real history. The plot starts to pick up near the middle, but feels a little rushed near the end due to the fact that the series was originally planned for a 50 episode run. Being cut in half due to the unsatisfactory ratings required of a “primetime” show really hurt this area. It still is pretty enjoyable, though I felt it would have been much better given a few more episodes. If you are interested in Japanese calligraphy/word study, this series will appeal even more to you. Ryuudou can draw “Ayagami” from people and youi, which are basically their names and depending on their meanings (current, and original meaning of the word), he is able to magically create weapons & armor. I found myself enjoying this show quite a bit. If you enjoy a little history or Japanese mixed into your anime, then you might wanna check this one out. But if the premise of the shows doesn’t interest you, then you might want to save your time and watch something else.
