Epic Fantasies in Anime

Because of how complex the epic stories are it's hard to find series in this style and even less that are really good because many times they overdo it having a very pretentious tone or making them too complex and hard to watch. Fortunately I'll recommend you two series that have all in its stories in just measure balancing thes tories between personal and epic developing a fantastic world vaery fascinating and complete. These two series are Berserk and Juni Kokki which despite telling stories with different goal they share a memorable story and characters developed in detail.

Mapping Imaginary Worlds

This is a map that I drew for my upcoming Twelve Kingdoms trilogy. It's on my mind because I just returned from a conference that my editor for this trilogy (Peter Senftleben, Kensington Press) also attended. Not only dig he take me and the hubs out for an amazing seafood dinner, but he also told me they want to include the map in the books.

So very, very cool!
