  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    There should be a season 2, and it is interesting
    They should have season 2 and know what happen next, it will be excited and the end is really interesting, they should put more characters, they should make the episode more interesting and more fun, it should be awesome.

    This Series is so AWESOME!!!!
    I went into this expecting a normal mahou shoujo and came back with my mind blown. There are lots of people people that say this is trying to copy Madoka and I disagree. For starter Madoka started to picked up after episode 3 while this came and strangles your low expectations by the second half of the first episode. I loved Madoka, but I felt like it was just like DIE to all the characters.

    Day Break Illusion and Madoka Magica??
    The anime is pretty good...although it lacks the activity that makes you want to watch the next episode. Sometimes when I watch this I feel that it's not inspired but it was almost copied from Madoka Magica...(Sorry my opinion) but I like the idea of tarot cards. I was hoping there should be a mahou shoujo anime with tarot cards. I don't like how they drew some of the characters...especially the ...

    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 my favourite animes I've watched in a while.

  • So Epic, but Rather Sad
    This work is amazing.... I love the card theme, like Cardcaptor Sakura, and the magical girl theme. Although this anime is great, there are alot of sad parts and/or when emotions are high-strung... Be prepared...
