    A+ One of the best anime of this generation
    It is one of the best anime I have seen in quite awhile it reminds me of ranma/fruit basket. Hopefully it will last longer as an anime then fruit basket did as I prefer to watch anime rather then read the manga.

    Fun and interesting!
    I just started watching this anime but I really like how it brings up social issues by portraying twisted interactions among humans, tanukis and tengus. It also has a good balance of drama and humor. Lots of great quotes from this anime as well!

    Why You Should Watch The Eccentric Family
    This show is simply beautiful to watch. I marvel every time I see it at how full of color and rich in detail it is, not to mention the amazing creativity--- a flying teahouse, a half-sunken clocktower in the middle a lake, and characters shapeshifting into all kinds of creatures and things! The plot is a bit melancholy but ultimately it is about a family sticking together after their ...

    A Fun, Fantastical, and yet Tender Story About Family and Relationships
    In the first two episodes I wasn't really impressed with thecharacter animation, but as the diverse characters appeared in their various forms as tanuki, tengu, and human I've grown attached and most importantly of all the enchanting and mystical beauty with which Benten's character is drawn is impressive. The backgrounds have always been amazing and every scene with Benten is full of ethereal ...

    Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking
    This show has a magic to it that I haven't seen in a while. Just when I think it's silly, it gets DEEP.
    Underneath the silliness, is an in depth look into the characters and terrifying revelations that will leave you breathless. This isn't just about Tanuki running around and preforming tricks. This show isnt just goofy (though it does have it's moments). It's emotional, has mystery, and dare I ...

  • Best of a surprisingly strong Summer '13 season
    A cleverly animated and beautifully artistically designed anime', this is one of the few that has a storyline that is even better than the artwork.
    If you love urban fantasy fiction of Charles DeLint or Emma Bull, here is a story that is an analog to their tales firmly planted in Japanese folklore. While humans live (mostly obliviously) in Kyoto, this tale revolves around the magical residents ...

    Background of Kyoto is really beautiful, but story is very boring.
    I never seen the anime on TV which has this beautiful background. Background of Kyoto is really beautiful, but story is very boring. I don't understand how creators can make such a boring story, I can't believe it.

  • A little something for everyone.
    My favorite part about this show is that you get a little of everything. There is some fantasy, slice of life stuff, some romantic interests, comedy, and they even throw in some action occasionally. Additionally the plot over the course of the season was beautiful, well thought out and displayed in a relaxed enjoyable manner rather than having it all forced down your throat in one ...
