Mahiro's family was mysteriously murdered a year ago. he was contacted by Hakase, a young woman who stood against her clan after they left her stranded on a deserted island. while Mahiro and Hakase decided to help each other out, they found out that the Kusariba clan intended to awaken the Tree of Zetsuen, which power could bring chaos to the world.
with an original plot, Zetsuen No Tempest (2012) managed to impress successfully. there were plenty of actions, but it was the dialogues that kept one on the edge, especially in later episodes. there weren't actual bad guys since both sides were desperately fighting for what they believe was right. this alone was enough to make Zetsuen No Tempest (2012) intense and interesting.
