  • Had potential, but didnt live up to it.
    To be honest, when I first started this series, I thought it looked great and the premise had a lot of potential. I thought it was going to be one of the better shows of the season. There were great animation battle scenes, intriguing themes about witches/people, and an interesting military/historical vibe. But as the season went on, the storytelling weakened and tbh became kind of boring. ...

    Promising start, sloppy end
    I've seen two or three reviews already stating this, but I just feel it really dulled the anime. It was extremely promising to begin with, and I really liked the animations, the vibrant colours despite the depressing time period was a really nice feel touch and overall made the anime extremely vibrant. However, halfway through the anime I realised the overall rushed feeling of it all. They ...

    Interesting premise, but...
    As a fan of historical fiction, magical animes, and red-haired witches, I really wanted to like this series. Like other reviewers have said, I lost interest about halfway through. The drama and action peaked early on, and the rest seemed a bit dragged out. I also had a hard time reconciling the serious life-or-death drama in a historical setting with magic thrown in. It seemed like the writers ...

    Magic, Alternative History, and Yuri
    This is an amazing anime with good art works design and content of yuri has brought us a great story of friendship and development of adulthood. During a Great world two young girl fight against the world and themselves to mature in a world of pure chaos. This is the reason you should watch it and I highly recommended for you.

  • A shipping that is sailed
    I heard that this anime had good potential and it did, to some degree. We have a witch that is basically the last witch in society(not really sure what happened to all the other witches). And a duchess named Finè who seemed to have a past with the witch.

    As the war is progressing, people are getting desperate and are in need of a miracle. How convenient! a witch with magical powers has decided ...

  • Great story, but a bit cliche.
    The story is great, but it is quite a bit cliche. Very enjoyable, somewhat cookie cutter, but a very sweet story.

    Whether or not it is a romance story or a friendship story is left up for interpretation, which I do like. Not everything has to be spelled out for the reader.

    Great start, great premise, ok anime
    This anime starts out with great 1st episode, and is pretty solid at end, but sandwhiched in between is nothing to special.

    It is a real shame, because the world and the characters are pretty interesting. I think if they could have slowed things down to increase emotional impact of some of the bigger events the anime would be stronger.

    As it stands, it felt rushed. Music was super solid ...

    Loved story/plot line
    When I first started this show I could tell by looking at the thumbnail that there was probably a war going to be taking place in the story. I did not expect it to be a modified and fantasy version of the WWII war that actually happened. Love the storyline and love the characters.

  • Initially great, but meh by the end
    Like everyone else seems to be saying, the premise is amazing and the animation in the first few episodes really sells the series. But things turn into a slow slog midway through with deadbeat exposition and ultimately shallow-feeling battles, "intrigue," and antagonists. Watch the first episode or so because it *is* good but seriously recommend just reading up on what happens after to save ...

  • The Show is Good, but Confused about Itself
    Izetta doesn't really know what it wants to be. Izetta has a lot of really cool ideas, and delivers on some of them successfully. Izetta has wonderful scenes, cool scenes, emotional scenes, and the dynamic between the two female leads, Fine and Izetta, is so wonderful and sweet.

    It feels cheaply made sometimes, in a way I'd call 'low budget' but really just means 'odd or bad animation styles'. ...
