To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts


Recommended Posts

I watched it as soon as it came out, like I usually do with every New season.

This is something for me, a lot of action and monsters.

I enjoyed the first episode, it wasnt amazing though.

It did seem to move along pretty fast, so my only complaint was the use of exposition to get it right into the meat of the plot. Hopefully that was for sake of trying to fit it into one episode, which they arguably did a fair job of. They could have taken a leaf out of Shield Hero's book and doubled the runtime.

I came across this one initially on Live chart. I’ve been wanting to start it!! Thanks for updating @Wedgy.

I really liked the description this site gives:

The democratic nation of Patria was created on the continent of Patria.

Because of economical disputes, the country split north and south, creating the Northern Union of Patria and the Southern Confederation of Patria and they waged a long civil war. With their numbers dwindling, the North decides to use forbidden technology in order to defeat the South. This technology turns humans into monster-like soldiers, giving them almost godlike powers. And with those powers, the long war came to an end and peace was restored.

Incarnates. They were the heroes who saved the country and were regarded as gods.

Time had passed, leaving the war behind. The people who had given up their human forms to become Incarnates were now feared by the masses due to their overwhelming power and were now called Beasts.

The former captain of the Incarnate squad, Hank, was on a journey to find his former Incarnate comrades who had turned into Beasts and was hunting them down as the Beast Hunter. A young woman named Schaal was on a journey to find the person who killed her Incarnate father. She encounters Hank and decides to go on a journey with him to discover the truth behind her father's death. She eventually finds out that the battle is never truly over, and the existence of the man Hank is looking for who is apparently responsible for letting the Beasts loose into the world.

Where does Hank's path lead him, as he bears the sins for killing his own comrades?

Just finished the first ep and loved it 😁

The production is being handled by Mappa who also did Dororo and Ushio & Tora so I have high expectations

I can't say that I love the premise. Though it does remind me of Claymore a bit, in that the characteristics of the beast gets stronger the more they use their powers, so bonus points for that. I like the idea of these incarnate characters, could have interesting battles to come, but I didnt like the betrayal in ep 1. It was all a bit confusing, and I am such a straightforward person, it makes no sense to me XD 

If I go on to watch more of this, I'll probably be here asking all of you what the heck just happened

I'm hoping (and expecting,) some more context about the 'science' they are using to alter their soldiers. From what I can tell, the only things we know from the get-go is that it's highly controversial, they can't seem to control it even with regular treatments, and the side effects appear to include some form of insanity. I think the anime still has a lot of potential, it just needs to elaborate more on its own world building to get there.

So I’m up to episode 3 now. While I like the idea behind the series and the design of the Incarnate forms, the characters’ personalities  and interactions feel forced  (Cop Craft seems to be doing a better job of growing the relationship between MCs with conflicting personalities/philosophies). It’s highly unlikely I’ll actually drop this series, but it’s becoming increasingly clear it won’t be as good as it could’ve been.

Episode 8

A very sad episode focusing on the Siren, but I wish more episodes had done this good a job of getting it’s emotions across.
