  • The anime a lot of us were waiting for
    This is what you would get if you mixed Tsubasa Chronicles, several movies from Studio Ghibli and Natsume Yuujinchou. Music is great, animation is gorgeous, story is interesting without explaining every single thing... It's a masterpiece. Can't wait to watch more episodes.

  • Stunning and all-around fantastic! A must watch!
    This anime is incredible! The first thing I noticed was that it's GORGEOUS. It's like anime animation style had a baby with Studio Ghibli backgrounds and out popped this show, completely stunning and it really draws you into the world. I'm also really drawn to the characters, I cared deeply about them from the very beginning. I really like the portrayal of Chise, they could have so easily made her ...

  • This anime is a true work of art.
    This anime is absolutely beautiful. The artwork, the storyline, the music... This story was so thoughtfully put together to make you feel the emotions of the characters. The animators did an absolutely amazing job of doing the original material justice. There is such a deep well of emotion in this show. It's not the most exciting or action-packed anime on my watchlist, but it is definitely the one ...

  • Vivid yet emotional.
    When I looked at the tittle, I was really thinking this anime is the same as others anime I have watched so far. Seeing the reviews really made me think that I should give it a chance, and it excessed expectation. At first, I thought it is something mystery yet normal. However, when I have watched the episode three, I shredded tears. I have a goose pimples, and my tears just came out of my eyes. I ...

  • A Must Watch, Really
    I give this anime a 11/10. I've never seen anything like this before. After the end of each episode its like a sadness overcomes you because they make you feel for each character that they bring. I've read another review that said something about it reminding them of slavery ? But I don't see how when it really isn't the point of it all. Graphics are amazing as well. Seriously, watch it !

  • This anime sets a new standard
    I've watched the miniseries and as of today episode 5, and this by far one of the best animes I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Beautiful visuals and magnificent story telling culminate into what can only be described as transcendent. This anime sets a new bar for others and will leave a void in my heart when it ends.

  • Absolutely Perfect! Favorite anime ever!
    This anime is a work of art. It is cute, vibrant, well-paced, and charming. I have read the manga and it only gets better from here (currently the 5th episode is out, not including the OVAs). The character development is wonderful, and you really get a feel for the world itself as well - which is absolutely magical. This is basically like watching an anime created by Hayao miyazaki. It is an ...

    Terrible depiction of romance
    In this series, it seems like the men own the women and do as they please. I've given it a fair chance up until the latest episode but it's honestly just disgusting so far. Slavery, misogyny, and misleading depictions of someone who is supposed to be depressed are all this series seems to be. No real substance or plot so far, just some skull dude who buys a girl and everyone in the series accepts ...

  • A Sweet Story that is super enjoyable
    The show is super sweet and enjoyable I remember having found the manga online and I only read a short bit but really liked it, but soon go busy and forgot about it and finding it on here as I go back to a mood where all I want to do is watch anime this is really great to find. The story is a little slow at times but it is just super sweet and while it is not the best anime it is a charming story.

  • Caught Me By Surprise
    Most of the anime series' that I have watched are already completed or a few seasons in, jumping into a fresh series like this is a new experience for me. I had someone recommend this one to me and it has caught me completely by surprise! I fell in love with it just by the OP alone. Everything from the animation, to the dialogue, and to the music, has been done amazingly well. The characters are ...
