  • The Girl Who Cried Occult
    At first glance, I believed this would be a serious anime that would involve some pretty creepy atmosphere and serious plot, but from the first episode, I saw that this was not the case at all. The main character hates the occult more than anything. (Hence my review title). Her father has died, and she must go to his funeral. He was the principal of an academy that is known for it's involvement ...

  • three and a half stars
    It's an overall good anime.

    Here are the pros:
    The plot is interesting enough to keep you involved.
    The anime has its fair share of humor.

    Here are the cons:
    Just like what a lot of people are saying, this is sort of like a goofy anime version of Scooby Doo without the dog.
    Involves time travel, and anything with time travel is weird.

    Some of the character development seems a bit ...

  • Little Plot but Not Too Bad
    The anime includes interesting tourism spots, and the story has a few interesting mystery elements and twists. The final episodes especially did a good job to bring the story to a meaningful ending. However, the first few episodes are boring and have almost nothing going on. Like some other anime, this might have been better with fewer episodes. Still, it is not too bad to watch to pass time. The ...

  • Some solid twists...
    Unexpected and good. This series takes its time, with many double episodes, so the pacing is very different from other anime. It feels like it could have developed some other things, maybe done even more occult things, but the show definitely has a feel of its own, sort of like Terminator 2 with an occult touch, really. Good characters and a story that ends with some good surprises.

  • Funny and scary in good proportions
    There is some Scooby Doo influence here with some of the characters but don't be fooled, there is most certainly a plot here and it's not some random guy in a monster suit trying to scare people. Without going too much into the story, "occult" here is used more of strange events (think X-Files) rather than witchcraft and the story centers around Maya (Daphne but better) and Uchiha (Shaggy) who are ...

  • Great Show....Just watch it!
    There are moments of slowness. But you will be happy with the ride. Even had a couple of tear jerker moments. I really liked the art. Similar to eureka 7 style characters. Enjoy it! At least for a couple of episodes for the characters to develop.

  • 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.
