New Anime Summer 2010 Spotlights: Legendary Heroes of Legend

Time to get an early start on the summer 2010 new anime season preview!

 I know that the spring season is still in the middle of launching, but true to Anime Vice form, I'm always looking ahead to the next big thing-- and keeping you on the up-and-up with me. In those interests-- and in an attempt to force myself to get some of the work on my season preview done ahead of time for once --I'm going to spotlight upcoming anime from summer season every so-often. (Don't worry, you'll still get your big finale with updated information, airdates, and more!)

Let's see...where to start? Shiki...High School of the Dead...nah, how about something we haven't already talked about a bunch?
  
  
Title: Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (The Legendary Heroes of Legend)
Genre: Fantasy/Comedy
Based On: An RPG by Sega
Studio: ZEXCS
URL: http://www.denyuden.jp

Story:
Our hero is Raina Lute, a slothful student at the Royal Magician's Academy of the Roland Empire. But when the Roland Empire wages war on a neighboring country, all of Lute's classmates die, leaving only him to obey the Emperor's command to find the relics of a Legendary Hero.

What do you guys think? It looks like it could be a fun sort of Slayers-esque kind of thing to me. But I'm always an optimist, so share what you guys think.

I will check it out when it comes out. Till then I will hold judgment.

I like the redundancy of the title.

@sickVisionz:  Yeah its silly enough to still be funny.

I has potential, when a title is this bad for a show you always know it is either absolutely fantastic or the worst piece of crap to be released in years.

@Karkarov: I'm pretty sure the title is intentional ;)

Looks like this could be a fun watch. Curious as to what the story is completely about. Did anyone else notice that the music was the song you hear when you graduate?

That is the most redundant name of all time.

The article calls the show, "The Legendary Heroes of Legend", but the title at the end of the video calls itself, "The Legend of the Legendary Heroes".  I don't really care which one is proper.  But I just tried to figure out, in my mind, if there's a difference in meaning between the two.  You know how you can look into the infinite if you face two mirrors towards each other?  I think that might've just happened with my brain.

For a second there I thought I read " Ginga eiyuu densetsu" for the series name, but alas....
 
This looks like it could be ok... albeit a bit cliche.
