    A great anime - blah
    So yeah, I only watched the first episode - but it seems to be pretty good.



    The story line was pretty good - it left you on a ...

    Amazing anime with great character development!
    I went in not knowing anything about this anime and I was pleasantly surprised. This anime has great character dynamics between the main four protagonists with some very interesting plot twists. One of the best anime I've watched in quite a long time.

    This is so slooowwwwhatishappening (Ep1)
    First half of the episode or so plodded along at the break-neck pace of my grandmother scrolling down a page on the internet. And then the rest of the episode happens. It did it in such a way that was completely unexpected, exciting, and made you want to pay very close attention. It starts off seeming like a shoujo slice-of-life-turned-magical-girl anime, when in reality it turns into an anime ...

    This is a very Dark anime, don't be fooled.
    People's souls become corrupted.
    And they must be executed by magical girls.
    Those people's very existence is then erased from reality.

    The main hero must come to terms with and accept what she has done.
    There must be another way, so she thought.

    This show is very generic but it does everything very well.
    If you like puella magica or shakugan no shana, this is exactly what you are ...

    A Different twist...
    I just finished the 3rd episode, and must say this is a very different twist on the typical magical-girl animes out there. Some people are likening it to Madoka Magica - and, well, I guess it has a similar feel to it, what with the origins of the enemy and the way the enemy is taken out... but that's about it. Someone below seems to have watched the first episode and from what I read, didn't ...

    Fire, Mystery, Girls Kicking Ass, Day break Illusion -Review
    My first thoughts when seeing this anime were, oh another show where little anime girls fight ridiculous things and frolic in weird dresses. I was majorly proven wrong in the first episode, this show is full of a mind boggling plot with mind fucks being thrown left and right at you, not that i'm complaining, I happen to love shows like that. Also the first episode had amazing animation, if you ...

    very interesting and pretty good so far
    So i have watched the pv and i really wanted to watch this show because I felt a very dark vibe. I was quite shocked there would be death in the first episode and how the world has these statics scenes. It made me want to know more and for a magical girl anime to have a lot of blood is a good sense that it will be enjoyable later on. Hopefully it wont be great in the beginning then starts to fall ...

    the title says more than you think.
    Day Break Illusion lives up to the title in the manner of having you looking for the illusion of a coming bright day for most of the series. This is a very dark series with magical girls wielding tarot based powers to fight off an encroaching intelligent darkness. It does resolve itself well in the very last episode, but it's long in coming.

    This could be roughly described as a coming of age ...

    How Can Day-Break Be So Dark?
    Day Break Illusion is far more probing than I had anticipated. Magical girl series have long been a dime a dozen, but this one is exceptionally well-developed from the very beginning. The series focuses on an organization fighting the demonically possessed. But like most clandestine organizations, Sefiro Fiore isn't fully on the level itself, particularly regarding its methods. Nor does ...

    Nice music and colors, looks promising.
    Just recently I've started to get into the "Magical Girl" genre and I have to say I think this one is promising! I've heard a lot of people saying they think it is a copy of Puella Magi Madoka but i'd have to disagree. There are similarities, but I don't think it is a copy. The two are the same genre and will no doubt have some similarities. The first episode was a little confusing but if you ...
