  • Ten. out of. friggin. Ten
    What can I say? From its cutesy art style and enigmatic but lovable characters, to the dark and strangely heartwarming bite sized stories, this show has captured my heart through and through.

    It's been a very long time since an anime has left me with such a warm fuzzy feeling and a hunger for even more. Set in a rather unusual post apocalyptic setting, with a new humanity preparing to settle in ...

  • A Show About Fairies (and apparently humanities decline)
    Most of this review is spoilers at least in a broad sense so read on and click those buttons at your risk Otherwise move along:

    Animation is good, but somewhat dream like in quality. Sometimes it adds to the show and sometimes I (a man who hasn't even touched alcohol) feel like I really need to go to rehab for something illegal.

    The storyline is disjointed, but clever and enjoyable. If you ...

  • The depth of simplicity
    On the surface the story of Humanity has declined might seem a bit daunting if not nonsensical, but this is merely the natural outcome of it's plot. Humanity is in decline, and in our decline the fairies have begun to rise. Quite possibly due to the lack of EM waves as hinted, but more importantly whatever it is that you think of when I say "fairies" disregard it. These fairies are more like their ...

  • Wow. An EXTREMELY interesting show.
    When I first started this show, like the first three episodes, I thought to myself "Wow, this is really humorous, but not like to make you laugh out loud, but the kind of humor that you recognize as humorous." That kind of thing persists throughout the show, that kind of subtle humor that you just appreciate as funny without laughing. But then you get to this "wait, what?" bit around the ...

  • Something Differnet Than The Average Anime
    It's very obvious that if you've watched this, It's something different from the average anime. I can't help but love it and crave for more. The main character is odd but still has an apparent personality. Yet, the way she is constantly raises questions that leave me wanting more back story, more strange happenings between her and the fairies, more characters that are equally weird and interesting ...

    Soooooooo much awesome
    I wish I could have my memory erased so I could watch it all again from the beginning. Also, that there was more of it to watch. It does whimsical things with the post-apocalyptic genre that it's rooted in and has a great sense of humour. I've not seen anything like it so far and recommend it whole-heartedly

  • Wibbly Wobbly - Timey Wimey
    The structure of this anime is really cool in how non-chronological it is.
    They set up tons of mysterious situations, with little cute but mischievous gnomes, robots, silent sidekicks, duplicates, dystopias, and the structure accentuates those mysteries.

    Every episode could be set at any time, at any place, at any point in a story that hasn't started yet. That makes it really cool.

    On the ...

    I'm quite ok with the fact that humanity has declined.
    Highly suggest. Great example of art and storytelling being used in interesting and intriguing ways. I can't exactly point to what it is exactly that I enjoyed most about this anime, but I found it captivating, quaint, and charming. Not for those that like solid stories, but perfect for those who just want to experience wonder and mystery. I would describe the show as magical.

  • *Insert Review Title Here*
    This anime was superduper cute and I really liked the characters and the universe it's set in. It's just kind of really confusing and I think that the timeline is purposely backwards??? Like the last episode is the earliest and the first ep. is the latest if that makes sense??

  • Utterly Bizarre, Utterly Unique
    This is one of those shows that is difficult to assess without feeling like a crazy person. Even five or six episodes in, I wasn't sure if the show was amazing and bizarre or so weird I couldn't determine whether it was good or bad. The art style is all over the place, but keeps surprising the viewer. The episode mini-arcs (ten episodes comprise five two-parters, and there are two standalone ...
