Introduction

Sorey is a human who grew up among the Seraphim (tenzoku), spiritual beings not visible to humans. Sorey believes in the folklore that says that long ago, every human was able to see the Seraphim and dreams of unraveling the ancient mystery that will make the world a place where people and Seraphim can live together in peace.

One day, Sorey visits the human capital for the very first time. He becomes embroiled in an incident during which he pulls out a holy sword imbedded in a rock and ends up becoming the Shepherd, a prophesized warrior who will cast away calamity from the world. He begins to realize the gravity of his mission, and his dream of coexistence between mankind and the seraphim becomes more intense—

And thus, the Shepherd embarks on an amazing journey with his companions.

The anime is based on the famous Tales of jrpg series that started with Tales of Phantasia in 1995. The series has been distributed in more than 100 countries with total sales surpassing the 16 million copies. ufotable’s anime adaptation is based on Tales of Zestiria (PlayStation®3, launched on January 22, 2015) the title that commemorates the series’ 20th anniversary.
