Summary: In this world, there are seven people that is chosen by destiny. There is a sword that is kept in an temple, which legend says the one who could pull it out of its sheath will become the king (Hm...I think I've heard about a similar story, oh yeah, Excalibur). One day, an army come to the temple and tries to take the sword.

Richard's rating - first impression (of 5): 4 - Better than expected

Personal comments: I remember reading somewhere online that the manga, which this anime is based on is inspired by a Chinese online novel. The setting of the story looks like ancient China. The author of the manga is the author of Full Metal Alchemist, so the art works are very similar to Full Metal Alchemist. The voice of the main character sound extremely familiar, so I looked it up. It turns out that he's voice of one of th twin from Oran Koukou Host Club.
