  • Short Review: Kyokai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary)
    I loved watching this series. Lovable characters with a comfortable dynamic, great fight scenes and stellar animation, themes of love, loneliness, and loss, and an adorable bespectacled protagonist... What's not to love?
    Although the sub-plots and familial ties can be under-developed and confusing at times, be mentally prepared to put everything else aside for the next few days while you ...

  • Absolutely Wonderful!
    This anime is amazing and has a beautiful story. I was quickly drawn in and absorbed by it. The characters are interesting and thought out. Mirai is adorable and a great heroine. There's a good blend of action, romance, and comedy. This is definitely one I'd recommend to anyone.

  • Beautiful animation.
    This series, hands down, has some of the most beautiful animation I have ever seen, along with some really breathtaking moments. It has a few misses. One is that there are a lot of unanswered questions, and the pacing is a bit off at times. Also, some of the main characters aren't well developed enough. They seem like they have much more interesting stories that are hinted at. Hopefully there will ...

  • Beautiful animation, slightly rushed ending, still worth watching I would say
    This is simply Kyoto Animation on it's A game: the fight scenes, the character expressions, the monsters, even the coloring, all fantastic. The soundtrack was beautiful but not invasive so points for that. The system of the Spirit World Warriors could've been represented better all through out (not in a huge exposition dump, but sprinkled throughout the series). The character development was left ...

  • It gets a 2 star cuz of the last episode otherwise itd be a 4
    ok so like the title said overall id give it a 4 ignoring the very very end of this anime. I've never enjoyed a rush feeling of a story cuz of course it can leave plot holes and it can be hard to cover everything in just 12 episodes but id be ok with it if they just kept calm and ended the story as expected or realistic... But na this anime decided to kill all kinds of enjoyment for me and was ...

  • Well it had awesome fighting scene.... that's about it..
    To this show's credit the fighting scenes were amazing. However, this show could have been so much more than what the makers made it out to be... So much of the plot was missing. So much of it was unexplained. If anything the writers could have gotten a longer show from simply spending time explaining only 1/5th of an episode.

    In short, I would say they put all their budget on flashy fighting ...

  • This show is amazing.
    What I like about this show: most of the characters are quirky, lovable, and complex at the same time, there were some plot twists that made me gasp out loud, the concept is really creative, and the final episode got me teary.

    What I dislike: some of Hiromi's perverted moments (especially in the filler episodes) made me like him less, the ending is confusing and out of nowhere (although I've ...

  • beyond the boundary a blessing or a curse?
    When two people are brought together by the hatred received from others, are they cursed or somehow blessed?

    From the very beginning, I knew that I would enjoy this series. The story seemed interesting enough and the art looked amazing. But in the end, that's not why I ended up loving it so much...I fell in love with it because of the characters and their interactions with one another.

    One ...

  • I just finished this anime...and I must say...
    This anime really took you for a ride. My first impressions were not amazing to be honest, it just seemed like a regular ol' anime in which the main character was slightly overpowered with a kick ass and cute sidekick. Nothing particularly special, BUT I would have to eat my words 3/4 of my way through the series. The romance actually progresses! Who would of thought? You can actually feel the ...

  • This show is amazing!
    This series alone, separate from the sequel, is absolutely amazing! There are some details in the story that don't get explained very well, but I don't believe that a story has to explore every little thing to be good. What matters is that this show gets what's important to the story right! Matched with great visuals and music, this show has become one of my all time favorites.
