Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero (Season One)

A hero of questionable decency smuggles the daughter of a Dark Lord back to Earth in order to protect her and keep a promise to an old foe.

What did you watch and why? This was the first title from my A to Z Anime Challenge. I picked knowing that it had one season which was twelve episodes long.

The goal is to watch an anime series or movie beginning with each letter of the alphabet. I intend to do this with anime that I haven’t seen before. One of the things that I really enjoy with watching seasonal anime is that I find myself watching shows I wouldn’t normally consider, and often end up loving them.

I’ve not seen any timelines attached to this challenge, so I’m just going to set my own. My plan is to watch all twenty-six series/movies this year. That’ll be one every two weeks, which should give me plenty of time, even with the longer series.
