Reikenzan hoshikuzu-tachi no utage perhaps the most underrated Anime of 2016 from my point of view. The reason for this is the raw episodes are released earlier but subs take a lot of time to come out compared to all the series that are released in 2016 Reikenzan hoshikuzu-tachi no utage is lagging behind. To put it in simple words Episode 4 came a week ago and that was raw with no English subtitle, but at that time Episode 3 was released in English sub. That means subtitled episode is released a week late while the same episode is already out a week ago but its not subtitled yet. The subtitle team are trying to fix this messed up schedule but it was clear that everyone was underestimating this Anime that also includes me, but quite opposite it rather turned out to be a great one.
In the anime’s story, a comet falling will bring about a great calamity, and in order to choose a child fated by the falling comet, the family of the “Reiken” clan with a long storied history is once again resuming its entrance examination process to find disciples. The protagonist, who possesses a special soul that is only available once in a thousand years, decides to take the exam, and he starts down the path toward becoming an exceptional sage.
Reikenzan hoshikuzu-tachi no utage Review

Reikenzan hoshikuzu-tachi no utage or Reikenzan is an Anime which consists of perfect balance of Action, Comedy, Psychological warfare and Upcoming romance. The Anime start off like Hunter X Hunter not exactly similar start but considering the fact that HxH’s first arc was “Hunter exams” and Reikenzan also start with exams. Well this exams is divided in 3 phases that means 1 episode per phase. Those who will pass the exams will become disciples of Reiken clan and train to become great sages. Well that’s what the entire story of the Anime or that’s what i thought but exam will be over in 4th episode by looking at the end of 3rd so there must be something new coming up, anyways the plot is pretty simple but what makes it an epic and good plot is how they divided the story, plus how extraordinarily intelligent the Main male character “Ouriku” is.
The main male character Ouriku is the Main character and that too the smartest one. I guess he will be in the same league of Shikamaru, L, Light, Sora etc.. His plans, the way he grasp everything is way off the charts and on top of that he is also strong when it comes to fights. For example – In episode 3 Ouriku used legendary weapons without even breaking a sweat, that only top-level sages can use after a harsh training. Also he is the most funny male character in the series when it comes to comedy.
The main female character “Oubu” who is voiced by “Yamaguchi Yuriko” the voice actress who plays the role of Robin in “One Piece,” She is the same as Ouriku, funny when it comes to comedy and her carefree attitude is what makes her one of my favorite female lead character. Also she is the smartest of all Reiken clan members because she is the one who prepared all the test for exams. Since Ouriku passes them all, Oubu has eye on him, although the opening shows romance between Ouriku and Oubu, still in the series there is not much progress in terms of that. I don’t know how strong Oubu is or she can fight or not because not much detail has given on her, all we know that she made all the tasks for exam and she is one of the leaders among many leaders of Reiken clan and she is certainly smart
The story of Reikenzan gives you a serious vibe but what makes it unique material for the Anime is how well the balanced the funny or comedy elements in between serious scenes. Which will certainly crack you up. In terms of carefree attitude the Male and Female Main characters both are on equal terms which is somewhat a great help in elevating the comedy.
The Anime covered total 3 english sub episodes and not much action is shown in the Anime, except for episode 3 where Ouriku defeats a monsters without breaking a sweat (Which was not shown).
Opening Ending and Background Music
I liked the Opening and Ending of Reikenzan well its my ringtone and alarm tone, The background music behind each and every scene is also good, especially i liked the music they use behind every epic scenes. And the music behind funny scenes is also good which elevates the feel of bliss and laughter comes out on its own. The Animation studio has some great choice of music.
Not the best Animation out there but even if i want to compare it, I will compare the Animation with Prince of stride because both are quite similar and almost has no difference but when it comes to backgrounds in Animations i guess Rekeinzan wins.
Wrapping the Review
The Anime is great and i would recommend my every single reader to watch it because Anime consists of perfect balance of Action, Comedy, Psychological warfare.
