    Danger, comedy, and teamwork.
    Based on the first episode, it's a bit darker than I was expecting (which is a good thing), with a nice balance between danger and comedy. The main character seems rather weak, but powerful when given enough time to ready herself during the battle. This allows for lots of teamwork, and the feeling of danger waiting for her to power up is rather fun. I found it amusing that they had to drag her ...

    Your typical sword and sorcery adventure.... or is it?
    After one episode of Chaika, you might say,"oh, so that's one of those stories."
    Ok, you might have seen these kinds of stories before, maybe in a western novel, maybe in an anime made in the 90's, but no, you have not seen any anime like it THIS DECADE, the reason being during recent years, classic sword and sorcery anime pretty much went extinct.
    Seeing just how few traditional sword and ...

    If you're just looking for a solid and small action snack with fun characters go ahead. Just don't expect much else.
    With the obvious big shot of its season being No Game No Life a lot of otherwise also decent and sometimes even better shows got pushed in the background while I think some of those deserved a bit more attention. One of these titles would be Hitsugi no Chaika (Chaika, the Coffin Princess) by Bones.

    Just like many other titles every season Hitsugi no Chaika falls under the category of ...

    Chaikac-The coffin Princess- Review
    In a refreshing change from the usual 'power of friendship I am the chosen one bullshit usually present in shounen, the action in Chaika is quite even-grounded. The characters never win fights through strength of will nor pulling a secret weapon out of their asshole. The movements are fluid, solid and practical, and fictional levels of agility are kept moderate.

    But that's not why you watch ...

    Refreshing darker anime
    Not near as dark as Elfen lied but more gore and darker story than a majority of the animes floating around this season. From the demonic unicorn being blown into pieces by a giant sniper rifle and raining the resulting blood/body parts down onto the characters, to the main protagonist being fully content with throwing the world into chaos and war. This anime shows great promise!

    Very good. Must watch.
    I'm one of those people that start watching anime based on how the art looks. So when I saw the art for Chaika, I knew I had to watch it. Having said that, the art is very polished and fluid. The characters are all drawn in a somewhat cutesy stile, especially the titular character, Chaika (who is simply impossible not to adore). For me, and for people who enjoy cute characters, that aspect ...

    One of the best this season!
    It is an excellent anime with good characters and a plot which is going places! The two main characters are completely unique, there is some excellent fight scenes and the plot looks like it can only get more intense. It is already good, and it feels like it is going to keep on improving as they add more elements in.

    A surprisingly good anime
    This review is written after watching episode 2. That being said this really is a great anime. I actually held off on watching this show because the lolli pictures and summary on CR just didn't sound like my style. If your looking for a basic watch or not watch = WATCH!! Interested in nonsensical number scores after only 2 episodes = 8/10.

    Story - So far interesting for any fantasy lover with a ...

    Pleasantly surprised !
    I am extremely selective on the anime i watch compared to most people. There isnt a certain guideline i go by but something just clicks. After one episode this anime made that something click in my head. At first i thought it was a little goofy a chick running around with a coffin on her back but it crazy as it sounds it works. I am really interested to see how deep the story is going to be. It ...

    A uniquely strange world
    The setting of this anime looks like it has a more medieval or pre-colonial style yet it features contraptions such as large vehicles and guns mostly in the use of magic. The action starts before any questions can be answered and we have three heroes. A cute young girl who seems to be a wizard with a hefty rifle and two siblings who also have a mysterious power. The brother who wields daggers and ...
