Fire Emblem is a featherweight entry into the crowded mid-nineties field of "Dungeons and Dragons" anime that swept through Japan. Based on a popular role playing game by Nintendo of the same game, it purports to create a world and story similar to the grand epics of Toliken. But it falls far short.There is no one element that fails but an overall level of mediocrity that is downfall of Fire Emblem. The story is straightforward, so you already know that by the end the boy will save the world and get the girl.

Additionally, the designs by Yuji Moriyama, consisting primarily of large doe-like eyes, jewel colored hair, and rubber band mouths, just feels out of place in this historical fantasy epic. Toss in some warmed-over synthesizer background music and you have Fire Emblem.Overall, unless you are either a great fan of the genre or the game or have a strange compulsion to collect Yuji Moriyama works, you are not missing anything by passing up on this video.

Volume 1: "Fire Emblem" Plot Summary:

The plot of Fire Emblem is very straightforward. A small but noble country, Aritia, has been overthrown by a dark sorcerer called Garnev. The only member of the Aritia royal family to survive is Mars, the young prince, who has fled with his remaining knights to the nearby country of Talis.

In Talis, the princess Sheida has developed a crush on Mars and they live happily until events bring danger down on Talis. It is now time for Mars to embark on a great quest to locate his legacy, the enchanted sword Falcion, slay the evil Garnev and free the enslaved Aritia.

But will a teenage boy, a girl on a winged horse, and a handful of knights are enough to defeat the armies of an entire continent?
