Seiken Tsukai no World Break takes place at Akane Private Academy where students who possess memories of their previous lives are being trained to use Ancestral Arts so that they can serve as defenders against monsters, called Metaphysicals, who randomly attack. Known as saviors, the students are broken up into two categories: the kurogane who are able to use their prana to summon offensive weapons and the kuroma who are able to use magic. The story begins six months prior to the major climax of the series during the opening ceremonies on the first day of the school year. After the ceremony is over, the main character, Moroha Haimura, meets a girl named Satsuki Ranjou who reveals that she was Moroha’s little sister in a past life where Moroha was a heroic prince capable of slaying entire armies with his sword skills. Soon afterwards he meets another girl, Shizuno Urushibara, who eventually reveals that she also knew Moroha in an entirely different past life where he was a dark lord capable of using destructive magic but saved her from a life of slavery. Can those whose minds live in both the present and the past truly reach a bright future? Delve into the complex world of Seiken Tsukai no World Break to find out! – My Anime List
Based on 8 review scores:
There seem to be a lot of magical fighting series coming out at the moment and the characters and plots seem to be fairly interchangeable. At least now the series is complete it is possible to watch it without mixing it up with other series! Moroha is a fairly standard shonen lead; initially appearing weak but within a couple of episodes he is very powerful and acquiring a harem of female friends. The series does have some good points; the way characters must write out their spells is original and the battles are fairly exciting. Overall I’d only really recommend this to fans of the genre.
My Anime List
It was a fine anime that I enjoyed throughout the weeks that it aired, however near the end even I could see how much potential story the writers tried to cram in the last few episodes. In my eyes, this could have easily been a 10 for me but due to the lack of budget and patience the writers had, this anime didn’t get the 24 episodes that it deserved.
So….The idea of past lives isn’t a bad concept, it was why I thought I would have a look but Diomedea didn’t grow on the idea and give it depth, which is disappointing. I have watched two other productions by them; Gingitsune and Mondai-Ji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? which were pretty good. Though the later was also very sexualised towards the prepubescent mind, but the story was original. I am obviously not the target audience for Seiken Tsukai no World Break and someone else may give this anime a glowing review and I will enjoy reading it.
The story is unfolding and turning out to be a pretty nice one. There seems to be some deeper information that they’ll tell as the story progresses. Although it is definitely interesting so far, you should definitely check it out.
