Chain Chronicles – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 1



A voluntter army and its allies try to defeat the Black Army and lose. Now they need to figure out what the next step is.


This one screams based on a game almost from the beginning though starting with storming the castle and losing is probably a bit of new one given normally you storm the castle and win at the end of the game. Riddled with clichés, this first episode does a decent enough job of introducing the cast in this desperately-trying-to-be-epic tale, and the action is half decent. In a season where there was more competition I’d probably be a bit more wary about this but for now I’m pretty happy to continue this one, and I might even learn to spell the name of it by the end of the season.

Chain Chronicles is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. I played the game before it closed down and don’t recall the castle-storming part… Anyways, I also have a lot of trouble spelling the anime’s name.

    1. Yeah, I don’t think I’m going to get it right before we get to the end of this series. I copied and pasted it last episode because I just couldn’t tell anymore whether I was spelling it right or wrong.

          1. okay, so having watched the episode, i do have one small comment. am i nuts or did it look like every fight scene was sped up somehow?

          2. I actually don’t know but it was strange and now that you’ve suggested speed I think that may be what was off about it. Now I want to watch the episode again just to see. But there was something a bit strange.
