  • Interesting but not 5 stars
    It's refreshing to see an anime where they didn't phone in the storyline and animation quality is reasonably high quality. Many of the typical tropes are still there, just not in the usual manner. I'm really struggling to find anything worth watching this season, so this helps a bit.

  • A Magical Tale of Salvation
    A heroine cursed by tragedy finds salvation when she is purchased by a demon magus on the black market. Rife with paradox, the magus is far more "human" than the family that abandoned her. Chise begins her journey toward the light in a new world that is rich and vibrant, and yet it is the same world that cast her out. The magic is alive and organic, it is the rope Chise uses to pull herself up ...

  • It's Absolutely Stellar
    The three part OVA is incredibly touching and helps set the background and mood for the main series so far. It balances between depression and hope in an incredibly poignant way, touching me in a way that few other works have. I can only hope the quality keeps up - it's already one of my favorite shows.

  • Its already a classic
    I remember first reading the manga after hearing about the massive amount of awards it had won. The anime does not dissapoint and will likely be many top 10 of all time lists. The story is amazing, the world is vibrant and full of character, and the art is fantastic.

  • Geargous, it feels more like art
    I absolutely love this show. It
    s like a breath of fresh air. Perfectly paced, likable characters, wholesome the whole nine yards. I hope they keep the pace slow and develop everything fully, i didn't even mind waiting the 6 months in between the first 3 episodes, now they come out every week and i feel almost spoiled.

  • 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 ...

  • 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.

    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 ...
