The series was good. It had everything going for it, but for some reason it never won me over. I have to agree with the reviewer in Otaku USA who said “I want to like Le Chavalier more. Maybe it would be better as a live-action HBO drama?” . I really enjoyed the animation, the character designs, the dub (well some minor problems in the begining that really bothered me), and the music. The original concept was very unique, it’s a mature series, it has a unique setting, and the characters are very original. But something about it just never won me over, and really lost me at the last episode. And the ending was terrible. It was a good series, and I’ve very glad I bought it, but it should have been a lot better then it was. I’m not sure why I don’t like it more then I do, because I feel like I should like this a lot more. I am still watching “Ghost in the Shell SAC” but finally from the begining, so maybe I’ll like that better when I finally finish it (been watching random episodes of this since it first aired on Adult Swim, finally watching it from episode 1 in order on VOD). I also agree with the reviewer in Otaku USA who said “Moribito” was much better so far.
Still I’m very glad I bought this. I loved all the work ADV put into it, it has some of the best fencing/sword fighting in all of anime (and I fence, or at least I did last year), and a good plot, even if it never won me over completely. I wouldn’t mind re-watching it one day, but it’s a solid 7/10 . It has a real disapointing ending too
