The Battle for Lytera is a Lyteran fantasy television series directed and written by Amelia I and produced by the Royal Lyteran Broadcasting Company. The series revolves around a fictional world based on micronations and the memes relating to them, and the titular nation of Lytera defending itself from threats.

Setting & Production

The Battle for Lytera is set in a fictional representation of the real world. While there are similarities to our own world, threats from space, ease of travel, cartoon physics and anime characters roaming Earth differentiate it from ours. While the lore of the show has not been fully established, it mostly revolves around Lytera and the land around it and threats from outside sources. Said threats are usually microwiki memes or general internet memes. Aside from Lytera existing as an independent state similar to Andorra or Liechtenstein, world history seems to have played out very similarly. Magic and science both work together, with necromancy possible and proof of a god (Mako Reizei) existing, alongside Communism being a sort of voodoo art that Kim Jong Un uses to perform magic.

TBFL is animated using Hitfilm Express 2017 with some care to detail, however, in scenes with a lot of movement, some janky animation can be noted, especially during Episode 1 during the Geinai march and the Crash of Gunray's ship.
