    Beautiful! Can't wait for the anime adaptation!
    I'm not very good at writing reviews, but lemme tell you as someone who is self-defeatingly picky about anime for animation style, story-telling, and panty shots (ugh fan-service is so cheap and unpleasant to me), this anime so far is gorgeous. At the time of my writing this, I understand that there will be ONE more part to the 3-part "prequel" of sorts (although, I believe it takes place AFTER ...

    Overall fantastic but...
    Now before you watch this a high recommendation is to not expect a whole full blown anime yet. This is a prequel ova to an unfinished manga which means it won't be finished for a LONG time. Keep in mind as well, I watched the 1 episode first then got the manga, so this is coming from a fan's perspective.

    What's good:
    ~For most, a really good setup to a larger world found in the manga

    ~The ...

    This is an OVA, full anime in October.
    There was already a review mentioning some of this, but I'd like to elaborate.

    This is a 3 episode OVA that is a prequel to the ongoing manga, the episodes for the OVA have been getting bundled with the newest volumes of the manga, namely the 6th, 7th and upcoming 8th volumes, hence the long wait between episodes. The 8th volume and thus also the third episode for this OVA will be releasing in ...

  • One of the best anime so far!
    I am huge into anime with different plots, environments, and stunning visuals. This anime hits all of those notes. It's like Nastume and the Book of Friends meets Inuyasha meets Garden of Words meets Mushishi. It's very exciting, but it's also very soothing and calm. If you are new to anime or magical themes, I really suggest you give this a try. The plot will have you feeling all the feels. I am ...

  • Great Animation for a great show!
    I love the manga and I also loved these OVAs. The animation is breathtaking. The atmosphere everything fits so well with the magical background of the story. I read the manga so I know that the story for the OVAs are only fillers but there are still great. I am looking forward for the anime TV show this fall. From the looks of the OVAs I think we can expect a fairly high quality in the TV show .

    Very Beautiful Series
    I really appreciate a series like this. It has robust characters, meaningful development to the plot, and its not holding the hands of the MC with op plot armor. I like how the MC starts off with a curse
    This is grounded in old myths, folk lore, and magic. It a series that shows that life sucks and to deal ...

  • Its speaks for itself
    As I said in the tittle this anime speaks for itself. In my own opinion there is no other anime or manga out there that is better then this one here. I compare this anime to every stuido ghibli movie out there because they share the same amount of impact and quality as this anime/manga. Other than the fact that it takes ages to make which is to be expected from quality content there is no ...
