Fairy Gone Introduction and Story
In the year U.E. 481, the War of Unification swept over the nation of Eastald. Conflict and warfare have drawn society to create intense and massive weapons, Fairy Soldiers, perfectly engineered for battle. After nine years, warring states have brough the great war to an end, leaving Fairy Soldiers without a purpose.
Present-day U.E. 505, humankind seems to be recovering the postbellum, resuming village assembly and recreational events but remains politically unstable. We are introduced to a young woman named Marlya, a recruit of an organization called "Dorothea." This organization investigates and terminates fairy-related crimes. These criminal activities have surfaced in response. Now, we observe the experience of these Fairy Soldiers and agents, establishing their place 9 years after the war.
1. Supernatural Forces
Fairy Gone is an intriguing and exciting anime because its story offers so much substance within the twelve episodes. Fairy Gone gives us an extensive cast of characters engaging the “good guy, bad guy” framework. In extension, the element of fairies and beyond human abilities are presented here, and it’s hard not to like a story with magic and fantasy. Furthermore, it highlights an age after war, where we discover how nations recover in such circumstances.
2. Something To Really Sink Your Teeth Into
Fairy Gone is a very dark, dramatic, action-packed anime with political turmoil. With all this combined, we are presented with a very profound plot. Its plot isn't simple and straightforward but is complex and open to various interpretations. The meaningful story is the essence of this genre.
1. Quick Quick Slow
The pacing of Fairy Gone might turn some viewers away. At times, an episode seems to be moving slow, such as characters being stuck in one place for what seems like forever. On other occasions, an exciting sequence is rushed through too quickly, leaving viewers confounded. As such, the rate of how the story moves through the 12 episodes could and should be more equal so that it doesn't feel like we've missed a step.
2. Too Noisy!
Fairy Gone highlights several key characters, Mariya and Free, but litters the story with too many supporting characters. With so many soldiers, agents, and various political leaders and figureheads, these individuals play a minuscule part and take away any depth that could be established with the main characters. Subplot upon subplot, these subordinate scenarios provide viewers too many paths that lead to nowhere special.
Does Fairy Gone appeal to you or something you’d pass on? We at Honey's highly recommend you watch this anime if you enjoy a dark, dramatic, supernatural and action-packed story. Let us know what you all think by leaving your suggestions and comments! Thanks, and see ya!
