    Interesting Anime, FTW
    I like what i have seen so far in this awesome anime. The character are so funny, story lines at first was complicated. As time goes by, it started to get interesting, love the fight scene. I hope to see another season of this wonderful anime.

    Visually Stunning Animation, Entertaining Storyline, Unique Characters
    The Story line becomes quite intriguing as the anime starts to develop. The op, is quite stunning artistically. The characters all have some quirk in their personalities which make them each really unique. The full storyline is still a mystery and needs quite a bit of development to figure out completely. The futuristic sense is different from many other anime by the fact that technologically they ...

    Shangri-La, Kurotoki's Review!
    Personal Thoughts
    Well thought out Story by Hiroshi Ōnogi, great visuals and a very in-depth storyline, that with each episode continues to pull you in deeper to it's storyline and as soon as you think you have it figured out, it takes you in a different direction, the BGM is well picked and timed throughout the anime, beautiful art-work by one of my favorite artists Renji ...

    Shangri-La is Amazing!
    I was skeptical when I first started watching this anime. I saw that it was by Gonzo, so I knew that it had to be good. The more I watched this anime, the more I got sucked into the storyline.
    The scenes and animation is absolutely beautiful. The characters are really well thought out, and they're funny at times without over doing it like some anime can do at times. This is one of the best anime ...

    Sorry, not my cup of tea.
    Some may love this anime. It has high points. It has lovely music, impressive animation, a futuristic setting, cool looking and interesting characters. But for me it is just not an interesting story at all. I don't really feel connected to protagonists and the pain they are supposedly suffering. This show is basically about a bunch of impoverished citizens of Japan wanting to get into the this ...

    Shangri-la versus Last Exile
    Seeing that the talented artist, Range Murata did the character designs for Shangri-La as well as Last exile, I have to admit I love his style.

    Though in Last Exile I'm sure they had different animators, it's apparent that the quality of the characters aren't as refined and well drawn as the consistent quality seen in LE. The overall style and fashion of the anime by itself is Impressive, and ...

    You am watch dis for pretty; no watch for brain.
    The year is some where in the future (stop me if you've heard this before,) and perhaps even an alternative time line where Tokyo has been destroyed by an earth quake and the forest has taken over most of the world--near violently in fact. There are strange new plants mutating to climb their voracious vines over the skeletal remains of sky scrapers and long gone restaurants, humanity struggles to ...

  • It's Stranger in Paradise, but Worth the Visit...
    SHANGRI-LA makes Interesting use of "Carbon Cap & Trade" and it's various fallout as a dramatic vehicle. A fusion of cyber sci-fi and mythic fantasy, with a little Earth-Mother environmentalism thrown in. A pretty good, if not overly-quirky, set of characters, the right amount of action & mystery. The story + character wrap-up strikes a better balance than many other anime series. I recommend ...

    Shangri-La: Wha!? Something Original!?
    If you've read any of my reviews here on CR or elsewhere, you'll know that one of the things I dwell on is how much cookie-cutter anime bothers me. It doesn't make something unwatchable by itself, but the show will have to do something spectacular to keep my interest. The sad truth is that a majority of anime is this way. I'm proud to say that Shangri-La is an exception.

    I'll start with the ...
