  • I love everything about this!
    Got hooked on the manga a while back and absolutely freaked out when I saw that an anime adaptation was being done. The music is wonderful, the story compelling, and the animation is right up my alley. This isn't a super helpful review, just me yammering about how much I enjoy it. My only criticism is that the pacing feels rushed in the latter episodes but I understand there is a great deal of ...

  • Perfection In Everyway
    So at the time of writing this, I haven't watched much anime. But this. It's beautiful and perfect and I love it. Like, it's going to ruin all other animes for me because I love it too much. The art, the music, the story, the characters. I feel so bad for Chise and Elias is so awkward and Ruth is loyal and cute and Silky is the best not-mom and Lindel is the best not-dad and I just- I am ...

  • Beautiful and twisted story
    “I don’t care if he thinks of me as a toy, and throws me out when he’s bored. It’s because he… even though it was only one time, said to me that I am his family.” Chise Hatori.
    The fall 17 anime season was a very interesting season for anime as we got a lot of shows that were actually good for the most part. Sure it that season had it stinkers like Ousama Game The Animation and Juuni Taisen but ...

  • What can I say, instant classic.
    With this anime done, and almost week passed, I decided to finally write up a small review of it! Before anything could be said, I want to just make sure that we are on the same page: I think that this anime was an instant classic. With that said, let us get deeper into it.

    First of all, let us knock easy things off the way; animation was on point. It was good, it was full of colours, it was ...

  • This was an amazing anime
    I absolutely loved this! For sure, the animation style and artwork were what drew me in... so I really wanted to like this one. Having never read the manga I wasn't sure what to expect. I was so touched watching this anime and so in love with this story that I have to go read the manga now. Music, animation, story... <3

  • A SIMPLY BRILLIANT ANIME
    no words can describe how good this anime is. It made me get in my feels, which is hard. It had outstanding animation. Great music. The pacing is just right. Every episode kept me wanting more.Its a master piece, a gem to be hold. If they did more episodes it would drag on but i still want more.

  • Very Faithful to the Manga!
    Asides from the weird snippet in the final episodes that's just completely lacking in dialogue, (which would make what's going on confusing to those who hadn't read the manga. But i think i read that was because it was in production at the same time of the manga chapters) it's pretty much exactly on point which is all I could really hope for. I was afraid the anime would go down the usual route ...

  • Beautiful Fantasy Anime
    It is a fantastic story with mythical creatures and folklore. You will not regret taking the time to watch this master piece. There were so many episodes that brought me to tears. The score, the writing, the animation, just all of it is magical. I would recommend if you are looking for a fresh story with fantastic visuals.

  • Wow I didn't expect to fall in love
    This is one long trip that I am happy to take. Just magical and engrossing! At the end I bought all of the manga volumes! The imagination and art of the show is really incredible! Chise's character resonated with me deeply. We all can see a part of ourselves in her. Oh and don't forget to watch the twitter shorts!
