    Don't let the cute girl and the title deceive you
    I've had the pleasure of being able to really explore this title and while I was expecting some sort of cutesy nice girl anime, and it does have those moments, what I got instead was an anime with so much depth, plot and heart. This series is full of political infighting, civil rights struggles, war, and all sorts of action while still being able to relay a very morally grounded message of ...

    This might not be what you think
    VDon's review is very good, but I'd like to add my own voice in support of this show. It's not magic girl, or action-packed, or all Mary Sue/Pollyanna cute girls winning everyone's hearts. It has a slice of life feel, and describes the ups and downs of the life of Erin, from the time she's a young girl until she grows to adulthood and becomes a beastmaster. Erin faces many harsh realities of ...

    A fantasy centered around a young girl
    Are you a fan of Serei no Moribito? Are you also interested in fantasy with a slice of life kind of feel to it? Well, you don't have to look any further. This story revolves around a young girl call Erin. Her life is split so far into chapters of her life. From episodes 1 to 10, she grew up in a small village with her mother who is a Touda vet. But her life changed the summer of her tenth year. ...

    Hurts so good, cheese & heart warming that keeps you watching.
    Hurting your main character.

    As a story teller, it is one of the hardest things to do. We often grow attached to our creations and wish to see them succeed. We don't want them to suffer--everyone loves a perfect ending.

    But can you sympathize with a character whose life is perfect?

    Enter the masterful, often heart wrenching (and yes, some times sappy) story of Kemono no Souja ...

    Wow! What a show! - my first 5 star review
    Unlike many reviewers here on CR, it takes a lot for me to give a 5 star rating to a show. This show came very close to achieving a perfect score and is my highest rated review so far. VDon has done a great job of describing the setting and general plot outline of the series as part of his review, so I won't bother to rehash what the show is about. My job will be to point out WHY this show is so ...

    Review of Erin (The Beast Player)
    Very touching series about a witty girl who had her family taken from her and rebuilds her life in the midst of a war in which she played an important role in. Erin follows in the foot steps of her mother and finds out how her mother really felt about the toudos. This series hit home and I could really relate to how Erin felt. I have to admit I cried alot ^^; But I found the intro song rather ...

    Must watch for all anime lovers!!!!
    when i first noticed this anime, i thought it would be an ok one, but after just a few episodes i was totally in love!!!! the main character is not one of those stupid-yet-everybody-loves-her or one of those clumsy-and-has-guys-tending-to-her-every-need-whether-she-notices-them-of-not girls. she is a strong willed kick but girl with a well built personality, and the creators didn't just ...

    Beautiful and Thought Provoking
    So as an Anime fan, storytelling style, and over all aesthetics count for a lot in my book. Beast Player Erin is a layered story that covers a breadth of themes both light and sweet and more deeply woven plot. While the plot moves slowly at times, most of the elements were must haves to properly tell Erin's story. The animation itself has a lovely quality to it, with several cuts of either bug ...

    Fantasy + Spice of Life
    I only post reviews for shows I have watched completely to the last episode and I will never recommend an anime to every person I talk to because frankly, what I like may not be the same for another anonymous person.

    With that said, this anime is for those who like Spice of Life genres mixed with Fantasy. The title of this series can be misleading, but will actually make sense why the title is ...
