Ixion Saga Dimensional Transfer (イクシオン サーガ DT) is a Japanese anime television series based on the online game Ixion Saga by Capcom. It began airing on October 6, 2012 and ended on March 30, 2013. One day as Kon Hokaze is playing an MMORPG, he receives a request from a female character in the game. He thinks that he has lucked out and found a girlfriend online, but suddenly he finds himself transported into the world of Mira where he accidentally saves a young princess by landing on her attacker with his swivel chair. With no idea how he got there nor how to get back to his own world, Kon tags along with the princess as part of her honor guard while a militant faction of the princess’s own country seeks to capture her before she can complete her arranged marriage.
This series takes those tropes, and irreverently plays with them, providing parody and lots of unexpected content. And trolling. So bad it hurts. I haven’t had so many laughs over an anime since “Daily Lives of High School Boys” (which, incidentally, has the same director; who’s also the guy who did Gintama). The princess isn’t a sexy teen girl (she’s not even cute enough to be a loli) and the sexy teen girl isn’t actually even, the cute animal mascot (which EVERY hero group must have), is at war with the hero. And, erm, “crotch problems” take center stage. It’s all about balls here, folks.
Basically, you can watch it without knowing quite knowing what’s going to happen next. Except that it’s not going to quite turn out the way it’s “supposed to”, or at least, not the way we’ve been conditioned to expect. I enjoy this anime and I am excited for the shows progression! I honestly don’t have any negative points about the series at the moment, and I hope it stays that way.
