Review: Busou Renkin


Plot Summary: One night, Kazuki Muto jumps in to try to save what he thinks is a girl in distress from a monster and instead gets impaled through the heart. The girl, Tokiko, is actually an alchemic warrior with a Busou Renkin, name of Valkerie Skirt, with the mission to exterminate Homunculi. She implants the only other successful work of alchemy than the Homunculus, the Kakugane, to take the place of Kazuki’s heart. The Kakugane resonates with his fighting spirit and forms a Busou Renkin (in his case a spear) so he can fight the Homunculus monsters who prey on humans. Kazuki joins with Tokiko to battle with the Homunculi and protect his friends and his sister Mahiro.


Busou Renkin is a story revolving around a student named Kazuki who fell into a conflict between warrior alchemists and homonculus monsters. These homonculus have to consume humans to survive, and the warrior alchemists fight them to stop them. There is a darker secret which is slowly unveiled but it has lots of action and comedy, and you slowly see the deeper storyline as time progress. An action anime with a character you can’t help but like, and its an easy anime to watch and enjoy. Busou Renkin itself is the weapon manifestation of the alchemists power through the Kakugane. If you liked Full Metal Alchemist then you will find this enjoyable.
