Mirage of Blaze
Genres: Drama, Historical, Romance, Supernatural, Light-Shounen-ai
Mirage of Blaze (2002), a shounen-ai anime series directed by Susumu Kudo, is based on a series of novels written by Mizuna Kuwabara (Ã¦Â¡â€˜Ã¥Å½Å¸Ã¦Â°Â´Ã¨ÂÅ“).
Difficult to classify, Mirage of Blaze is equal parts melodrama, historical romance, and supernatural fantasy. Japanese history predominates a heavily structured plot, which mainly involves the continued aggression between magic using guardians, or “possessors,” and the denizens of a “feudal underworld,” or the restless souls of long-dead samurai attempting to re-ignite ancient war on the modern plane.
