  • WIT Studio gives us another masterpiece!
    I've watched the OVAs these past months and eagerly awaited the arrival of the series. It feels like too long since I've had a great fantasy series come up and this exceeded expectations.
    The spellbinding art style that has become a studio hallmark is present in glorious detail and the writing is superb. A story such as this one enticed me greatly and as it unfolds, I have no doubt this will ...

  • Amazing! Can't wait for more
    After reading the manga I was happy to find out about an OVA on this series only to then find out an anime was scheduled for October this year. The manga was everything I could of wanted in a fantasy series and I had high hopes for the anime adaptation, and to no surprise it was an absolutely outstanding first episode and I cannot wait for more to come. I would recommend this series to any ...

  • A very beautiful story!
    I'm currently reading the manga as well as watching the anime, and both of these are very beautiful in regards to storytelling. The art is amazing and the story is sad, but also heartwarming and sweet. I really loved that its a story about magic in modern society, and I am a fan of the way that this show has portrayed it. This is one of the anime/manga that I put at the top of my recommendation ...

  • Beautiful and Stunning
    Visually and emotionally appealing... It sorta reminds me of Howl's Moving Castle. I absolutely adore this series. It's a whimsical and awe-inspiring masterpiece. I love magical/supernatural genre of anime. I think it's positively brilliant and I'm looking forward to watching more episodes...

    Haven't read the manga, only seen the anime so far..
    ..and boy oh boy am I digging it. The characters, the story, the animation... Everything is just perfect. It shows a world set in the present day, stirring with magic and mystery that normal people cannot see. Our main character, Hise, who has a heartbreaking but great backstory, grows up to become the apprentice of one of the few mages left in existence. This show has the potential to become ...

    A total masterpiece.
    You can literally feel Chise's pain when watching this show, as it is one of the most immersive experiences you'll encounter nowadays, or at least in 2017. This review will most likely be for the first episode, since it has already aired. But I'm sure this episode sets the tone for the series, and the quality of this anime will not go below what we have witnessed already.

    It has ...

  • Wow Just Wow, Very Impressing
    I'm not very good at reviews, but this show just shocked me. I'm new to anime, got into it about half a year ago. So when this show was in this season simulcast I went and watched the OVA's. I was so impressed by those 3 OVA's that this anime is already one of my tops, and with the first episode it seems to be keeping up the same quality. Cant wait for the rest of the 24 episodes.

  • Absolutely Spellbinding!
    One of the most entrancing stories I've ever watched. So much is said about this world and its characters without actually saying it. Stories like this make me wish I had majored in literature so I could break it down better.

    I honestly dont have the words to describe why I liked this so much. Everything in this series is amazing. The visuals, the music, the world, the characters. I was ...

    Best Anime of the Year Candidate?!
    I don't normally say an anime is great after just one episode, but this is an exception. I watched the OVAs and was hyped for the release of the actual series. I was not let down. One episode in and I'm dying for the next one. This is by far the best first episode I have ever seen. This is the most hyped I've been for an anime in years.
    From the very first moment they had me hooked. The ...

    This Anime Fucks So Hard
    Like, in the good way fucks. Anime in recent years has been so repetitive with their tropes and story lines, it's nice to find a good anime that gives the fantasy genre a different spin. The animation is gorgeous and the characters are unforgettable. 10/10
