Blade & Soul starts with Aruka (whom I have previously referred to as Alka) showing her skill as an assassin. She ends up going to a village and helping defend it, though her status as a wanted criminal soon brings greater trouble.
I’m looking forward to seeing more fight scenes from this anime; it will be nice to see Aruka fight against opponents who are actually a match for her. I can’t really say much more about her character, as she is one of the strong silent types; all I know is that she seeks revenge.
There is fanservice in Blade & Soul, and whether you enjoy or despise it is up to you. The fight scenes will probably be the highlight of this anime, though.
