I had seen few aeni’s before but nothing can be compared to Elsword: El Lady which I’d been pretty addicted recently. Aeni or also known as Korean animation actually looks very similar with Japanese anime, and I was kind of amazed by how solid the fight scenes are although it wasn’t really something that standout to any average anime of today. I believe that what makes it special is the fact that it is adapted from a very popular online game which is Elsword, there are plenty of characters with astounding designs, the visuals are truly a feast for the eyes.
Yes, Elsword: El Lady characters are truly dazzling in appearance as well as in the battlefield. The fights scenes should be awesome as something that we should expect from a game-based anime. This actually feels good like watching Sword Art Online, Log Horizon, GATE, Granblue Fantasy, and Chain Chronicles combined together as these anime had a piece or element of it in Elsword: El Lady’s plot in small aspects.
Without further ado, it’s time to get to know the characters of Elsword: El Lady TV anime as follows:
