I stopped watching anime in college...after a while all the series started becoming the same damn thing over and over again and nothing really interested me enough to watch it. One of my last anime series I enjoyed was Bleach, which I watched religously via fansubs. After the first big story arc (rescuing Rukia) that was it to me...Renji on earth? T.T Ruined forever... So then it came to the states...oh great...another good series soon to be drowned in crappy dubbing/story editing and "CTN Otakus." Out of curiosity I watched a little of the dubbed Bleach...bad idea...I nearly got an anurism. So Blade of Fate came out on the DS and...it is good?? How can this be? It's an anime based game...how can that be possible? Beleive it or not, it is a great fighter for the DS. The fighters are balanced...to a certain extent, the Spiritual Pressure System keeps you thinking about the way you fight, and it has a ton of playable characters. Obviously you have to sit through the horrid butchering of the story and over simplification of characters' personalities, but once you get to the meat and potatoes of the game, it is well worth the money you spend on it. If you are looking for a good game to play for a while after beating Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, be sure to pick this up.
