Wait... French? What... Huh?

Radiant isn't a manga. It's a French comic book that has been adapted into an anime. While it will not be 100% the original story, it should be quite good. I mean, if Japan likes it enough when it kinda looks like Fairy Tail meets Black Clover or Inuyasha, then it should be good.

Synopsis

Seth has dreams of becoming a cool mage in the future. He undergoes special training every single day to help him defeat monsters known as Nemesis that fall from the sky daily. However, it’s not going very well and his troubles continue. He causes problems for the people of his village and gets scolded by the parent who raised him, Alma.

Then one day, a giant nemesis attacks the village!

Seth wants to exterminate the root of all nemesis and save the world. So, he sets out on a journey to find the rumored land ‘Radiant’ where the nest of the nemesis is.

Three Episode Impression

Seth wants to be a sorcerer and fight Nemesis: monsters that rain down from the sky and terrorize people. Seth is cursed though and has horns to show it. You see, he came into contact with a nemesis long ago and because of this, humans tend to fear him. When a nemesis attacks the town he is in, he summons courage from deep within to try and destroy the monster. He gets knocked out and is saved by his mother figure, Alma. Alma is a researcher who is trying to unlock secrets of the past. Seth wants to become stronger, and so he sets out on a journey to do so.

Seth parallels Asta from Black Clover in a lot of ways. He’s very weak and wants to fight, so he travels. There is going to be lots of talk of discrimination in the series as humans hate the infected even though they have the power to fight the nemesis. In regards to Seth and Alma, this feels a lot like how the master for Ed and Al was in Fullmetal Alchemist. You know, tough love and all that nonsense. The series overall though, comes across as bland and generic. While apparently the original French comic (yup, this is a non-Japanese work) is loved by many, a lot of said fans are very angry online about the outcome of the anime. Watch if you like Shounen-esque shows, but don’t expect a whole lot. We are going to go ahead and pass on this show for the reasons above and that there are just better shows on air this season that we want to watch and Radiant doesn’t really pull us in.
