    Occult Academy, first impressions, Episode 1
    The story opens at the school commonly known as the Occult Academy in 1999, where the Dean/Principle/Headmaster has just died. He founded the school to help train people in non-standard modes of reality ranging from magic and astrology through telekinesis and UFOs. His daughter, Maya, arrives late for the funeral and in an angry frame of mind. When her father's spirit-inhabited corpse gets out of ...

  • I liked this anime, but it started getting strange at the end
    I really wanted to give it five stars, but the last few episodes really messed up my suspension of disbelief. Yes it is a show where a lot of magic is involved so you'd think it would be okay to....

    Not as good as it could have been...
    When I think of the occult what comes to mind are weird religious practices, voodoo, Satan worshippers, black magic etc. not UFO's or blood sucking creatures or Crop Circles and to illustrate how the writers of this anime are out of touch they call them mystery circle's I've never heard that term anywhere else except here so the title of this series is a bit misleading. For most of what occurs ...

  • Fantastic character development thrown in with a couple good side characters, but ultimately packaged with a bit of a sloppy story and an atrocious ending.
    A story about a school that studies spirits, monsters, and aliens! This should be good right? Right.. Well, it depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a design that's relatively cool, forget it. The designs in this anime aren't very interesting and the action is also mediocre, but I don't feel like action was one of the things they focused on too much. It was more of a story ...

  • Why you should watch this one
    This series was a fun adventure into the paranormal world. Each episode was like side mission to the series before it ultimately rushed to wrap up the story. Be prepared for beautiful artwork and animation, a weaker story, and likable characters. I for one fell in love with the main character Maya. So don't be afraid to start this series and have some fun with it.

  • ok story but not great
    Strong beginning and end but fillers from ep 3-10. They try to tie it into the overall story but I just wasn't feeling it. Some if the characters weren't really needed. I prefer Ghost Hunt over this. And apparently there is a minimum character requirement for reviews.

  • SPLENDID ANIME WITH HORROR LUST MURDER AND MUCH MORE!
    Though it wouldn't make my top 5 of sci-fi occult daemon like anime's. This is still in my top 10. Will even have you in tears in the last few episodes. A must see for those of you who like daemon, occult, and mystical anime's. The story line seems to throw you off a bit in some spots, but no worries. You will catch up with the script later, and it makes up for it. If anything is lacking is the ...

  • Not really what is advertised, but still pretty good
    Despite stellar designs and animation, and a really interesting plot, the focus of the show is a bit off. It's another case of trying to tell a story that's too big for 13 episodes. That being said, the characters are very well realized, in fact, the show is a lot closer in total to a slice of life anime. No problem for me as I enjoy those. So on the whole I recommend it. I will say that the ...

    Watch until the end!
    This is a show you have to watch until the end to realize why you have to watch it to the end. And then maybe you'd better watch it over one more time. It's a very strange show with characters that seem too complex for the slapstick humor, but it really grew on me!

    bland slice of life disguised as supernatural mystery
    first couple and last couple episodes where good, then everything in between became a bland slice of life with really bad generic cheesy humor. Unless you like slice of life, avoid this show like the plague as it isn't what it sounds like.
