  • The best story, i want to more!!!
    I was looking for an old anime, and I found this.
    In short it was a beautiful story.
    The romance, the tsundere scenes and the beautiful girls. A perfect combination.
    I hope they are planning to release more material from this series.
    I love Zakuro ♥, his way of being. The twins are very beautiful Bonbori ♥ and Hozuki ♥, and Susukihotaru ♥ has a shyness that falls in love ... ♥♥♥♥♥

  • Well Done Written Story
    Overall the plot, the character development, and the dynamics they all had was fantastic. The main character Zakuro was for me like a fresh breath of air, she is strong but loving towards everybody. Then Bonbori and Hozuki are so well complemented neither one overshadowed each other which is fantastic and their story of how they all came together is touching. Then there's Susukihotaru who quite ...

  • Another good story worth a watch
    With any luck, further series or sequels will come from this.

    Ground breaking or new idea. No, which is the only reason not a 5 star.
    Quality writing, a good story, fun characters? Definitely.

    A group of high society boys are paired up with attractive and powerful half spirit girls for human-spirit relations and dealing with odd spiritual happenings. However their duties are only extra ...

  • Beautiful and evocative designs, and characters you'll root for
    This anime has the odd distinction of having some of the most beautiful battle scenes I've ever seen. The songs sung by the girls are just achingly lovely. The character designs are also quite attractive and distinctive, no doubt inspired by the original manga artist.

    Otome Yokai Zakuro has interesting lessons to tell about prejudice, acceptance, and love - both romantic and familial. The ...

  • actually worth 5 stars
    Bottom line upfront: Excellent anime in every category. Character design is stellar. I'm all about these 1/2 spirit girls. Story line is coherent and believable (as an anime). Setting in a turn of the century world, very well done. Art is excellent. Costumes are beautiful. Music is well done. Some of the dialogue boarders on melodrama, but that's the anime way. Rewatchability is high. I looked ...

  • Review Title........
    I'm not someone who ever writes reviews but...I loved this show. It's not super original, there's a few cliches and such. Still, there's just something about it. I would easily consider this to be one of my most favorite anime. If you're even a little curious then give this anime a chance.

  • Beautiful story, animation, and that singing!
    Story line on this one is pretty stereotypical, though the ending has a small little twist I wasn't expecting. The animation is beautiful, and that song they sing....I can't get that thing out of my head now LOL! Definitely feel this should have had way more than one season!!

  • A well rounded romance, combining several of my fav genres
    I love shoujo romance stories, stories dealing with yokai or spirits, battle scenes, and humor. This show had all that and so much more, nothing in the story felt forced, it flowed nicely building relationships between many different characters. I shipped the main couple so much, I loved the combination of the strong girl and the man who wanted to protect her even if he couldn't, I loved to see ...

  • A Truly Amazing Anime
    Now first off, the art in this anime is beautiful. All the sakura petals and flowy hair and clothing, it all just sets up a beautiful mood for this visually appealing anime. Now usually im not a fan of any sort of romance, but the displayed in this anime is perfect. The plot isnt lost to the romance, and the romance isnt shoved in your face, its perfectly built throughout the anime. The mystery ...

  • Lovely Art with an interesting Historical Tone
    See this review and others like it at http://www.ramblingsonreadings.com/anime-review-otome-yokai-zakuro/

    This anime is beautiful; the art is lovely, the storylines are fascinating, and it was far too short. There is a certain softness to the animation style that is just gorgeous.

    There is romance for every type here: the main character, Zakuro, fights her attraction to the main ...
