Anime Series Review: Le Chevalier D’Eon
- Studio: Production I.G
- Number of Episodes: 24
- Year(s) ran: 2006-2007
Basic Plot Summary: Set in mid 18th century France, D’Eon de Beaumont, the protagonist and knight of King Louis XV, investigates his sister’s mysterious death that leads to the faint trial of a secret organization plotting the destruction of the French monarchy.
Review: All you history nerds out there: this one is for you guys. For those who are not too familiar with the French Revolution, I would recommend for you to brush up on some of the it’s history, as well as of the events simultaneously taking place in neighboring countries, to understand and fully grasp the setting and ambiance the anime is trying to create.
Enthralling storyline, intense story and character development, beautiful renditions of famous historical buildings and sites, the mixing between historical and fictional characters and events were perfectly blended-I swear, this anime virtually has no flaws.
Overall Rating: 5/5
Nerd Love: Production I.G produces some of the best animes out there (Ghost in the Shell S.A.C., Patlabor, FLCL), history majors would have a field day with some of portrayals of the historically-based characters and events…not much notable nerd love, unfortunately
BUMP OF CHICKEN and Hatsune Miku collaborate in a duet song, RAY, making it the first ever music video featuring Miku without any CG editing involved— that is to say, it was filmed in real time.
The Hatsune Miku module used here, named “14 Model” was created and manipulated entirely by Crypton engineers. You can watch an eight minute documentary on how this video was created here.
Her voice manipulation was done by kz from livetune. This song is available on the iTunes store!
