  • 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 character designs are also quite attractive and distinctive, no doubt inspired by the original manga artist.

    Otome Yokai Zakuro has a interesting story to tell about prejudice, acceptance, and love - both romantic and familial. The characters are interesting and well developed, without ...

  • 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 ...

  • A fairly good, short anime with great art
    I tend to enjoy fantasy, historical, and romance animes, so this was pitched up as a recommendation on MyAnimeList based on other series I had enjoyed.

    First off let me say that I really enjoyed the art style of this anime. It seems a bit different when I compare it to other animes from 2010, and I really loved how the artwork reflected some of the artistic touches I usually see in manga, but ...

  • A fun little anime with a nice ending.
    As the title says, this anime is quite short lasting only 13 episodes without a chance at a season two. It doesn't bother me too much that it's not continuing because of the way they ended the show. No cliffhangers, no foreshadowing, no bs, no complaints from me.

    The content itself was pretty great, worthy of four to four and a half stars. However, the last 3 episodes deserve 5 stars and ...

  • Short but sweet shoujo
    Highly recommend. Only complaint I would have is it's a shorter anime, but the manga is also short. Follows a house of orphaned half-spirit (youkai) young girls who are chosen to cooperate with the military in dealing with unruly spirits during the time Japan began to Westernize. Though Zakuro is the main character, they all have different backgrounds and they're all adorable - of course, you ...
