  • A hands-down favorite!
    It doesn't get better than this! Do yourself a huge favor and watch it now if you haven't already I feel like this anime has a little bit of everything: action, drama, romance, humor, fantasy and more. I heard a lot of good things about it from others, so my expectations were pretty high, and damn, were they met. Love it, love it, love it!

    ~ An AMAZING Anime ~
    Story: a very beautiful story well illustrated with the art and the music from the anime, well told and has a rich cultural background; interesting mixture between English and Japanese folklore told in a charming way
    Art: very unique style of drawing, sometimes the animation is not the best in the world but there are some absolutely breathtaking scenes that are so well drawn, ...

  • Friggen Amazing!!!!!
    This is the sort of anime that you wish could go on forever. Everything about this anime is absolutely beautiful. I don't even know what category to put this in. I thought it was just gonna be a fantasy romance, but it's so much more. HIGHLY recommend.

  • 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
