  • Truly Beautiful Series
    Absolutely beautifully done! I adore this series! Its possibly a little slow paced for some people's tastes, but I feel like that's part of its magic. Would recommend to anyone as well as encourage them to pick up the original manga for it! Can guarantee you won't be disappointed!

    There is something magical about this anime
    This anime is magical and dream like the way Studio Ghibli movies are; think Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Howl's Moving Castle.

    There is something about this that totally draws you into the world of the show, you get so absorbed with what's going on that when you finish an episode, you have a moment when it feels like you're waking up from a dream.

    What really helps give you that ...

    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) ...

  • Absolutely breathtaking
    I love this show so much. The art is amazing. There is incredible scenery and each episode is packed with emotions. One episode and you'll get hooked. I just can't stand that I have to wait another week for a new episode. I will be sad when this ends.

  • Interesting Anime...
    I ended up watching the OVA about a week ago. It was so beautiful and interesting, I originally believed it was the anime itself. After completing the OVA, I was so disappointed because I wanted to see more of it. I searched for it online to see if I could find any information on it. I stumbled across the manga online and ended up reading the manga, that is when I realized the episodes I watched ...

  • One of my favorite anime series.
    I have really been looking forward to this all year. I bought and read all the manga after watching the first episode of the prequels and have really been looking forward to seeing how they would animate the books and I'm not disappointed it has been well worth the wait.

    The story telling has a pace similar to that of a fairy tale, and cleverly touches on myths and legends form around the ...

    Not my typical anime genre but close enough
    I'm normally not into the drama or "a slice of life" type of animes which this does resemble in some ways; well this is not those.

    I would say this is a mix of many genre done well. Dark horror themes, magical fantasy themes, romantic themes, slice of life themes, and some high on acid "what the fuck" themes. I love the art style and the story is intriguing. I really want to know more ...

  • Hella Interesting, more please (^_^)
    the Art is well done, the Characters are interesting, the Story leaves me impatiently waiting for the next episode.

    To be honest, hats off to the illustrator and writer Kore Yamazaki, because it was the cover art and title that caught my attention to watch the anime.

    I was not expecting the ova episodes to be heavy on backstory, but I still definitely enjoyed them.

  • Love it, love it, love it! Great new anime
    This is brilliant. Watched the first episode for Passport to Japan sweepstakes, thinking okay another magic based anime about a mage and a depressed girl, seen it heard it, nothing original here... Wrong! This is a refreshing anime that has humor, but an ultimate serious nature to it that keeps things interesting and moving a long. I still don't quite know how this plot is going to unravel, but I ...
