  • Loved this show!!!!!


    Erin's story is so touching and 'slice of life' but the fantasy elements all through out kept me interested even if I'm actually 'feeling' something. Like a twist of Bambi with Waterhorse.
    I'm not the type of person who likes watching things that make me feel (not a whole lot of slice of life on my playlist) but for anyone who is also like that I think this show ...

  • Good Idea, Not the greatest execution of it.
    The story is decent. I have watched better, and I have watched worst. The show starts out great, but near the middle (and after seeing the same flash back for the tenth time, or even a the second time in a single episode) it get really, REALLY, repetitive. I have no idea why they bothered to stretch it out into 50 episodes, when it could have been told in 30 or even 25.

    Erin is a smart girl. ...

  • Extremely Rewatchable
    I came across this show by complete accident a few years ago, and had no idea what I was getting myself into. Since then I've rewatched it over 10 times and am still not bored. It has become one of my personal favorite anime, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves steady paced shows.

  • Captivatingly Beautiful
    This anime had such a wonderful story. The story arcs are captivating and emotional. Definitely an anime I would love to re-watch.
    The series starts when Erin is 10 and focuses on her life as she lives in the Tohda village with her mother. As the series progresses it follows Erin as she lives with Joun the beekeeper. At fourteen Erin is accepted into the Kazalum school. Erin becomes a master at ...

    Definitely worth watching
    That little girl with the harp you see there? Yeah that poster is dumb.

    This show has an excellent, complex, and nuanced plot. It loses points from me for its just bad attempt at comic relief and a not so great translation job. There are scenes where the characters talk for 10 seconds and the translation is just a broad stroke of what was said. Also 15% of this show is flashbacks.

    those to ...

  • absolutely unique show
    This anime is slowly paced and grows darker as it goes.

    It is one of a very few anime I've ever watched that made me cry more than once over the course of its episodes.

    I also laughed, regularly and with great gusto. There were times where I found myself actually sitting bunched up into my chair gnawing on my fingernails in anticipation or terror.

    It is probably one of the best ... ...

    Very Disappointing Overall
    When I was first recommended Erin, I was promised a mature story disguised by a childish facade. I was also told that I had to power through a few slow-paced episodes at first before I get to the good stuff. I got to around half the show wondering when the good stuff started and I would hardly consider "my mom died" and "overly complex political tension" mature themes.

    I think Erin lacks in a ...

    Thoughtful, Heartfelt, Surprising
    I didn't exactly get what I thought I was going to get when I started this show. In fact, at first, I watched 2 episodes and put it down for several months before returning to it out of boredom. This show has everything you could want from an anime and more. It is extremely well animated with very few awkward frames and slight use of CG in parts. My only criticism of the show is that it starts a ...

  • Just watch it, don't wait.
    A bit slow until around episode six, after that... I dare you to stop watching.

    There is violence, but it's portrayed in an abstract manner, even so it is at times horrifying, a five star anime through and through. Those first six episodes are slow, but you will not appreciate the rest if you skip them. without giving away any details, it follows the life of a young girl as she deals with the ...

  • Made me cry- multiple times
    This anime is sooo good! Yes, it does start out slow but as you get into it it gets very interesting. The characters are very well written, and it's a great story. (One thing that I really enjoy is the characters slowly age episode to episode). I first watched this several years ago, and I have since come back and re-watched it several times. This story of a peaceful young girl (who, because of ...
