[Ended] Seiken no Blacksmith: Plain

The problem about this anime, as I see it, is that everything in this story, the hero/heroine, the villain, the plot, even the grand finale, all feels very much like a stereotypical cookie cutter fantasy anime story. It's not a bad anime, but it isn't a great anime either. It is mediocre at best. On top of that, the ending really isn't an ending, and there are quite a few side plots it started without really wrapping up.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 76 (Some, not much)
Comedy: 70 (Barely any)
Action: 70 (Typical)
Art/Animation: 76 (Typical)
Sound/Music: 80 (Typical)
Character: 70 (Cookie cutter typical)
Plot:77 (Little)
Ending: 72 (Opend ended)

Re-watch value: 30 (No need to)

Overall: 74 - Mediocre at best

Recommendation: I'd say skip it unless you absolutely have nothing else to do.

i thought the start was alright, looked kinda cool and everything, and it made me really looking foward to watch a cute <to me) blacksmith fight along side with a girl knight for some complcated quest...but i sort of got lost in the middle since i lost track of the plot
