World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman is a fantasy anime series released by FUNimation in 2015. The show is based on the Japanese light novel series written by Akamitsu Awamura and illustrated by Refeia, and it was adapted into a manga series and an anime series.

The story revolves around Moroha Haimura, a high school student who has memories of his past life as a powerful warrior. In this past life, he fought against an evil sorcerer known as the Breaker and was part of a group of warriors called the Saviors. These Saviors were powerful warriors who had the ability to wield holy swords and defeat evil.

As the story progresses, Moroha is recruited by a school called Akane Academy, which trains students with the reincarnated memories of past warriors. Moroha meets a girl named Satsuki Ranjou, with whom he has a special connection due to their past lives. Satsuki is a member of the student council and seeks to find other reincarnated warriors to join the academy's fight against evil.

The academy's main objective is to prevent the resurrection of the Breaker, who was defeated in Moroha's past life. However, they soon learn that his influence still lingers in the present day, and his followers seek to bring him back to life.

Throughout the series, Moroha and his classmates battle against various evil forces while also uncovering the truth about their past lives and the reasons behind the Breaker's resurrection. Along with Satsuki, he also meets two other girls named Shizuno Urushibara and Maya Shimon, who also have past life memories and become important allies to the group.

The show has a mix of action, romance, and humor, with character development playing a significant role in the plot. The romantic elements primarily revolve around Moroha's relationships with Satsuki and Shizuno, although it's not the primary focus of the series.

The animation of the show is visually stunning with intricate character designs and beautiful backgrounds. The fight scenes are well choreographed and exciting to watch. The soundtrack complements the show well, with a blend of epic orchestral music and intense rock tracks.

Overall, World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman is an engaging fantasy series that offers a mix of action, romance, and comedy. Its unique concept of past life memories, combined with intriguing characters and an exciting plot, makes it a must-watch for fans of the genre.
