  • Not Technically Anime, But Still Amazing
    I was surprised by how awesome this show was, and knew nothing about it before seeing the first episode. The puppets are fun to watch and very fluid, creating great action sequences set to an excellent soundtrack. The plot is somewhat predictable, but it was functional and held my attention throughout. Can't wait for a second season.

  • Spectacular Original Show
    Having been a fan of PiLi and other similar Taiwanese puppet show for years I have to say I am really pleased to finally find an officially subbed show. I will not go into the nuances of how this differs from a show produced solely by PiLi and as such I am judging it based on what I see, an excellent fusion. Taiwanese puppetry is truly beautiful to watch and this show exemplifies the subtle and ...

  • Thunderbolt Fantasy - The Review
    For people who are turned off by the "puppets" quit reading this and go watch Fuller House or something. This is a Great show! The animation is top-notch. I finished the first season and am excited to know they will be making more. In the meantime I am reading the manga. Its interesting to see how much different they look.

    Pros - Incredible fight scenes, great cast of characters, something ...

  • AMAZING I WANT MORE!!!
    Loved this from start to finish! Everyone looked gorgeous and I couldnt stop saying to myself "Man this animation is great for dolls!" I was never with a dull moment. It is very hard I would feel to pull off something like this puppetry as well as putting together a good story in it. Please of please make more of this series I am HYPED!!!!

  • It's own unique style
    Started for the bizarre concept of puppet anime, stayed for the sick battles and puppetry!
    The story is fairly simple but it has some hooks near the end as more and more is revealed. Definitely did not expect this one to be my favorite show this season.

  • Unexpectedly AWESOME!
    I loved it. It has everything; action, drama, bishies, gore, magic, swords, demons... the story is really interesting and the scenes are GREAT.

    The only part that i dit not enjoy was hearing the japanese names while the subs names are... Taiwanese, maybe. That part was awful.

  • And to think I wasn't going to watch this
    Now at first I was like most people thinking, “Puppets?! On Crunchyroll?! Ain’t this the 21st century? Aren’t I here for anime (and Asian live action programing for some of you)? What kind of bullocks is Crunchyroll pulling with this? And refused to watch it. What changed my mind? This article here on Crunchyroll: ...

  • Prepare to have your mind blown
    I will say right off the top, this series was by far ( like not even close ) my favorite thing I watched all summer on Crunchyroll. Quite a few people I know where not interested because it was not anime, till they saw me watching it one afternoon. The story is well written and keeps a good pace throughout every episode, and is always engaging.
    The special effects are done superbly and the ...

  • Don't judge this by its appearance
    When i saw the poster i thought it would be lame , I was wrong.I gave it a chance and i liked it a lot. It has very likable cast of characters and good effects. I was quite surprised by it and enjoyed greatly. Its greatest quality to me how unique it is. You give it a shot and see if you like it to.
