"The Legend of the Legendary Heroes is an intriguing fantasy adventure so far in Part 1 and offers an enjoyable journey of a mismatched pair who slowly grow to work together over the course of their trials. However the series tries to keep too many balls in the air at once and often the plot suffers because of this. Instead of following the fantastic journey of Ryner and Ferris or even the interesting and darker political plot of Sion the series often goes on extended tangents that feel half-hearted and incomplete.
On the other hand, when The Legend of the Legendary Heroes Part 1 does keep itself to moving the plot forward, it creates a fascinating fantasy adventure story that will hook you with its comedy and action and leave you to understand the plot as it slowly unfolds."
