    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) ...

    A total masterpiece.
    You can literally feel Chise's pain when watching this show, as it is one of the most immersive experiences you'll encounter nowadays, or at least in 2017. This review will most likely be for the first episode, since it has already aired. But I'm sure this episode sets the tone for the series, and the quality of this anime will not go below what we have witnessed already.

    It has ...

    Haven't read the manga, only seen the anime so far..
    ..and boy oh boy am I digging it. The characters, the story, the animation... Everything is just perfect. It shows a world set in the present day, stirring with magic and mystery that normal people cannot see. Our main character, Hise, who has a heartbreaking but great backstory, grows up to become the apprentice of one of the few mages left in existence. This show has the potential to become ...

    I really really really love this anime.
    I'm sooooooooooo invested in this anime. I'm even reading the manga and I don't normally read mangas. I want ALL the episode at once!! Such and amazing start and it seems to be following well with the manga. Everything about this anime is beautiful. I am just here waiting for 10/14/2017 to come, it's taking too long.......

    My heart is broken...
    I didn't know anything about this show, and I didn't start it till after I'd already begun to lose hope for the fall season, having watched six or eight new first episodes (*mumbles something about Black Clover that doesn't make it past the vulgarity filter*). This won my heart in probably the first three minutes, and I spent the entire show loving it not only on its own merits, but as an example ...
