Legend of Basara- 13 episodes- based on the manga "Basara" by Yumi Tamura
The story is set in the future that resembles the Dark Ages. It is about Sasara, a girl who just wanted to protect her village from those who are in power. Sasara will learn the dangers and cruelties of fightings and amidst that, she will find her love. Beware, this is not your usual romance fare as this is also an action-adventure anime. The quality of animation in the nineties doesn't quite give you the futuristic feel. But nevertheless, the twists are like from a soap opera executed effortlessly. Just expect the unexpected. This one would leave you wanting for more. Seriously, I'm having second thoughts in this anime to which is better: to give spoilers or to be very vague.
