  • This is like Harry Potter and Spirited away had a baby, love it.
    So let's try and grasp what we have been given, thus far. Chise Hatori is a girl who is much but normal, she pretty much lost her family, is not loved by anyone in reality, which is utterly despicable for one's own blood to behave that way, but, different families in all behave rather black and white at times. This may not be the manga, which i will have to read, because I'm interested as hell, ...

    Cannot Stand On Its Own
    *Disclaimer*
    I have not read the manga. This review is based solely from the perspective of watching the anime.

    More or less, this is simply a compliment to the manga.

    Unless you're already familiar with its world, you're quickly lost within the first few minutes with no clue to what's going on or why.
    I'm absolutely certain it has its appeal to its manga fanbase, but no appeal ...

    I am deeply, deeply in love with this...
    OVA or whatever this is. I was about to take it off my Queue because I thought there was only one epi or whatever. It is a BEAUTIFUL anime. The story is so magical and threaded with gold and blues..and it is something of a MUST watch.

    I am in search for the manga now!

    I'm in love with the story, art, characters and music.
    Edit: Just found out that there is a full season scheduled to start in October this year. So stoked!

    This is a world where nothing is as simple as it appears and the balance of good and evil is challenged, not by big fights between protagonists and antagonists but by the lenses through which each character's actions are viewed. The interactions of the characters are layered and each has their ...

  • Great! 12 more characters? Fuck it!
    Don't want to write a review just to fucking rate a show but guess what... Here I am. Don't like the vulgar language? Let us rate without a review. Checking Google, this has been a requested feature for, FUCKING, ever. 32 more god damn characters for a review. Fucking fine. Here they are.

  • A great anime, for fans of the manga!
    I enjoyed watching the first two parts of the prequel, especially my husband! He's been reading the manga for sometime now and has become a bit of a fan of the series. Though, and this is just my opinion, I feel like you would have to read the manga first before watching the series.

    The beginning starts off beautifully and very... How do I say it... Studio ghibli? Not that there's ...

  • One of the best story i have seen in a while
    i was hesitant at first but it surprised me at how good the story is. the only thing that bums me is that its episode realize is quite slow, wished it would come out a bit faster. the artwork is also truly amazing love it. hope it has a long episode chain.

  • Wonderful little series
    While this anime may only have two to maybe three episodes right now, it is destined to pick back up soon. It plays more like a Ghibli film rather than your typical anime. The scenes are beautifully crafted and while the story seems slow at first, I guarantee will still be able draw you in. I am intrigued by the story, so I will be picking up the manga series for it to get my fill until the rest ...

  • The OVA is a well fitting side story for any fan.
    I've been an avid follower of this manga for almost 3 years now and it really pains me to see so much misinformation/misunderstanding by people in the review section.

    Do not let the negative views skew you, this OVA is only a side story to the original manga and was meant to be a side story the whole time. An early animated advertisement came out after the OVA's announcement and confused many ...

  • Amazing but a lot of waiting
    This show is very beautifully drawn and shown. The storyline is also amazing so far! But one negative thing is that they do not come out frequently, so it is killing me! I still love it though! I read that you can read their manga online, if you guys are interested, I recommend looking it up!
