    A Refreshing watch after years of waiting.
    What do you do when you wish to give all of it up, but find yourself too empty to do so? You turn numb, find someone to give you direction. Tell you what to do, how to dress, how to live, so the motions that are so empty to you do not matter anymore. And thus, how Chise's world brilliantly changed.

    Giving herself over to the hands of slavers, purchased without care at an auction, her buyer ...

    Beautiful & Dark (Spoiler free)

    But nah, I watched it anyway. O boi this anime is just... beautiful! I can't think of much to describe it. These episodes are just so amazingly paced, and you miss nothing, actually gives knowledge about magic and ...

    This show is impeccable
    I don't think I've ever seen a series start with such a 'could they, should they' premise, but good god, has it been beautiful. The first episode is a lot of 'what ifs' regarding Chise's character, but it quickly blooms into this beautifully romantic theme that is so simultaneously ethereal and yet profoundly human. I LOVE the presentation of magic here, as it's clearly making a serious effort to ...

    Best show of the season
    Animation, writing, music. Everything about this show is top-tier.
    I can't remember the last time I saw a show this good.
    And if you like fantasy stories about magic, this show takes a very original and intelligent approach to it. They try to ground it with careful bits of logic and explanation. Unlike most anime where it just kind of exists, and people do things "because magic".

    This Anime Is A Work Of Art
    Extremely original story and captivating art style. Each episode pulls you in closer with a relatable internal struggle while not being so depressing as to leave you in the dark. You always get a somewhat magical, uplifting thought, or a sense of realization after each episode. 10/10 Keep Making This Please!

    Three episodes in and this already beats most the anime I've seen in three years.
    I have a feeling this series is going to be really special. Hell, on a three episode basis, it already is. I already care about the two main characters more then I've cared about many others in a while. The animation, the sound, the purity of the messages melded together, the writing, the creativity, and just about everything I've seen in this show thus far is so beautiful that I'm having trouble ...

    Incredibly Deep And Beautiful
    This anime is one of the best I have ever seen since I started watching anime. The art and music are exceptional, and the characters have a lot of depth too them. I have been waiting for something like this to come along. If you like anime that tackle some tougher subjects, and have real emotional impact, you will like this anime. Definitely on of my favorites, three episodes in and I can't wait ...

    Loving the new series of episodes.
    This is going far better than I had ever hoped it could. The characters are being portrayed great and the art is breathtaking. The pacing is never to fast or to slow. I will be there for every episode and watch it first because I can't wait or last so I save it for last.

    Best anime of 2017!!!
    This anime has a great story line, portrayed very emotionally! it's definitely a tear jerker, as well as one that makes you think. I love how it shows the confused depressed state that the main character is going through, and elaborates on her struggles of trying to find a place where she belongs, and getting over her traumatic childhood... the most recent episode as of reviewing this (episode 3) ...
