"What happens when you take Shakespeare’s Hamlet and The Tempest and thrown them together into a magical anime world? Well you get Blast of Tempest, one of the most unique anime experiences you’ll come across in quite some time. It follows the tragic tale of two friends and the death that unites them. Former friends, torn apart by death, brought together by revenge. It is unlike anything else in anime and Blast of Tempest proves to be a mixed bag because of it."
