獣神演武 – HERO TALES – Update

by

Creator of Fullmetal Alchemist, Arakawa Hiromu’s current project is Jyūshin Enbu – Hero Tales- a manga which is serialized in Shounen GanGan Powered since Oct 21, 2006. It’s currently under development by GENCO with Studio Flag spearheading animation production.

The story revolves around “Taitou, a young man living in ancient China, is the prophesied seventh star of the Hokuto (Big Dipper). He must travel with his sister Laila and his friend Ryuukou to retrieve a sword and discover his destiny.” –ANN

Whether or not Heroic Tales can capture the essence of what made Fullmetal Alchemist crazy popular remains to be seen.

Random humorous comment:

“Generic hero, generic unstoppable-god-mode-turn-on, generic mystic sword. Granted, for what it is, it’s not bad, per se, but we’ve seen this so many times, I would have trusted Arakawa to come up with something more original,…” -Nepharski@Fullmetal-Alchemist

Nothing wrong with mindless fun. :D My only beef is the characters are a carbon copy of the line-up from Full Metal Alchemist. Take ultimate bad-guy #1. He’s a dead ringer for Mr. Eye patch Führer, King Bradley.
