    Akari isn't an emo ?
    I've always been a fan of magical girl anime, and as such I've watched quite a few different series. When I was first looking for something to watch and I saw that Day Break Illusion had magical girls AND tarot cards, it was something I just had to watch.

    First off, the main characters were pretty interesting. While at first they didn't seem to have much to their personalities beyond the usual ...

  • Arcana and Magic Come Together in a Great Series!
    Day Break Illusion is a series about a group of magical girls whose powers and personalities are based on the Major Arcana cards of Tarot as they fight monsters born from humans that succumbed to despair. I found the whole premise of humans succumbing to despair and becoming monsters to be an interesting one and the addition of Arcana from the Tarot was even more interesting for this series. The ...

  • Interesting but missing something
    I'm partial to magical girl anime this one has a very unique story but a lot like Magical Madoka. I think the story could have been a bit longer though! Animation is very good and the story line is a bit broken but you can understand the story a bit more if payed attention to.

    An Anime like Puella Magi Madoka Magica and super Great!
    I really like this Anime. I do not care what people think of this. Aniplex made an amazing anime like Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

    Plot:
    Since ancient times long past, this world has been ruled by two tarot cards.

    Diablos Tarot—The tarot of the devil that feasts on the souls of living humans and uses that nourishment to bring countless pain and suffering.

    Elemental Tarot—The ...

  • amazing graphics. even better story.
    "day break illusion." is an action packed story with personality and heart.
    this is a great story which follows Akari through her journey to becoming a "tarot user."
    the graphics were amazing and had real depth, and even the sad episodes were perfect. if you like action, life and teary eyes then this is the anime for you. the only complaint I have is that they don't explain the ending and you ...

    I don't wanna be mean. . . but meh
    Day Break Illusion has so much here that can be good, but for some reason it never seems to realize it. Well, pros of the series are; nice shiny animation, some interesting character designs, and good sound quality. However, the cons are; unfocused story, generic one dimensional characters, underutilized plot devices, and the stroy seems to have no weight behind it.

    So, getting back into this, ...

    SO MUCH Lost Potential!!
    Day Break Illusion is a series that could of joined Madoka Magica in building the dark magical girl sub-genre, instead it simply copied it with little originality. What little originality this series does contain comes from its Tarot Card Reading theme which doesn't effect the progression of the series as much as you might think. Day Break Illusion can be exciting at times and deliver emotional ...

  • Short, Dark, and Shojo - and Surprisingly Good
    I was originally attracted to this anime because of it's unique art style, and that quirky blend of cute, dark, and angular lines is something that kept me happily watching: the art is, in my opinion, quite refreshing.

    The first episode started out slow, but picked up at the halfway mark, and this is generally how the episodes work throughout the series. The pace is slower than some other ...

    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 type that lives up to expectations
    Bluntly putting it, this lived up to my expectations in a different way. Since I haven't been watching as much anime as much, I didn't get to watching the show until 2014. Back then, I saw the preview stuff and I thought I was going to get some epicly rad magical girl anime with alternate universes. Yes, I was wrong, but it surpassed my expectations of something amazing quite quickly.
    While at ...
