  • Truly a Masterpiece!
    One of the most beautiful works of art I have ever seen! This anime was well made and stays true to the manga. They do such a good job at creating this world and immersing you into the fantasy world. I can’t wait for the next season and the continued manga.

  • My favorite anime EVER
    This is my favorite anime, though I watched it in sixth grade and some things in here sixth graders may find disturbing. I'm just a dark exception. This anime is filled with little cute things, as Elias doesn't really understand emotions, and she teaches them to him. He throws tantrums, like a little kid, and she is always there to help. This anime shows what being kind really means, when your in ...

    1. Oh, you're working late I guess.

  • my fav of the year!!
    I absolutely love this anime. It's got such an understated aesthetic that you don't find in the average anime these days. The main character is fragile but also strong in her convictions and her supporting cast all help to solidify her personality. The story arcs all have meaning; there are no fillers or irrelevant characters who are introduced then go away. you get the feeling that all the ...

  • Amazing action fantasy and romance in one!
    One of my favorites! So much beautiful imagery, creatures, and story. Wonderful! I love the trio dinamic, and the back stories that come with it. I very much hope they continue with more. There are a few things that I think could be better explained. But it’s wonderful, and leaves a bit for the audience to put in their own imagination as to how things are.

    Grim fantasy adventure
    Characters: 3.5/5
    Story: 3/5
    Animation: 5/5
    Ending: 3.5/5
    Flow: 3/5
    Overall:18 /25

    Overall this show has unique characters and back stories for these characters. Animation is stunning and makes it hard to look away. The main problem is that for each question you have answered, it raises another that never gets answered.

  • Studio Ghibli quality in every episode
    After coming back nearly a year later to just reliving some memories, I see that everything after episode 24 isn't available anymore (for some reason, "licensing" issues? wtf is that about?)

    It pains me to praise this anime so highly if people have no way to watch the full anime now but I will say, it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful anime I've ever watched and on so many levels;
    The ...

  • The start is a little slow but it's definitely worth it
    This anime is so beautiful but the more you watch it, the more you become obsessed with it. Finished it in 3 evenings and it's now in my top 5 favourite animes.
    This anime isn't overly romantic and doesn't sexualise women as much as most animes do and the characters aren't annoying either, it's very too the point and they don't do anything stupid so you won't end up shouting at the show. You ...

    May be too slow for some viewers
    By no means do I think this is bad, but as far as pacing, it is exceptionally slow. I'm not looking specifically for some action packed shonen, but if you watch this one, let it be because you enjoy the breathtaking scenery, and an excellent fantasy vibe building an interesting "wish I lived there" world. 4-5 episodes in, I was far from hooked as far as plot was concerned, though that is around ...

    Stunning anime series.
    This made me laugh, cry, angry, sad, and laugh and cry.... You get the idea. 10/10 would highly recommend first time anime watchers to watch.
    It has a lot of peaks and valleys in emotions for viewers. The story starts with a rush of sadness and then slowly gets happier only to wreck you with more sad story lines. It will have you hooked from the first episode.
