The story revolves around Mahiro Fuwa, a teenager whose family was mysteriously murdered one year before and his friend Yoshino Takigawa. Mahiro is contacted by Hakase Kusaribe, the leader of the Kusaribe clan who was left stranded on an unknown desert island by her followers, and agrees to help Hakase in exchange of her help to find out the culprit for the death of his family. Upon learining of his friend's intentions, Yoshino joins him on his quest to stand against the Kusaribe clan who intends to awake the "Tree of Zetsuen" whose power can bring ruin to the entire world.
Several dialogues and plot elements in Zetsuen no Tempest pay homage to the works of William Shakespeare.
Started airing today on ViZ website. Not sure how I feel about this yet. Everything seems OKAY at best. The dialogue is mediocre, with a lean towards ****ing awful. At one point the guy says something along the lines of, "I don't know why I believe this, but I do!" That's the writers' way of saying, "We need to advance the plot but I don't really know how?!"
Maybe it'll get better next episode though. The premise is interesting enough.
