Characters & Voice Actors
In my opinion, Kannazuki no Miko could have been a real masterpiece, or at least something very close to that. Unfortunately, it has its bad(but it also depends on the viewer point of view) elements.
The plot it's not one of the best ever written but it really has quality and potential, expecially if you are fascinated by japanese folklore. That's why I found it very intriguing, not particulary original tough.
The best point about KnM is all about the way the part of the plot involving the main characters relationships is developed and their characterisation, expecially the one regarding Chikane. It's really intense how the anime depics in a delicate yet very strong way her personality, her feelings. She's probably the best character in the whole work but the others are not bad at all, even if the antagonists seems to lack in something, they're not as interesting as they probably should be.
The voice acting was pretty god in my opinion, it has really high moments, but, even if it sure has its ups and downs, it doesn't even come close to "bad",never.
Aother very good point in the show is the soundtrack. First of all, the opening and the ending theme are extraordinary and really suits the anime. Overall the music and sounds that go along with this show are good too.
Also, graphic in general, and character design are really, really good. The style is enjoyable, pretty but not too much, the colors are perfect. The animation on the other hand, are qualitatively instable. Some can really impress you, and some can even perplex you.
There's just something that can bother someone while watching the show.
I'm referring to the action scenes. Not that there's something wrong with them of course, 'cause they should be there but...well, some kind of viewers could really find the Mecha scenes bothersome. Somehow It feels like they doesn't fit, that they aren't necessary for the show. They don't have the power to possess the same or at least a similar relevance and intensity that the character relationships have. It's like that for almost every mecha scene, excuding maybe just a few. It seems like they don't have a strong, real reason to be there, so they could be really annoying. Also, they're not really good, qualitatively speaking..
So, in the end, if you're ok with mecha action, and of course, homosexuality doesn't bother you, just try this, 'cause Kannazuki no Miko really deserves it.
Ps: Since English's not my motherlanguage, I truly hope i just wrote something understandable X°°D read more
Wow, what a unfabulously fabulous anime we have here.
The story centres around two high school girls who are crushing on each other, but they can't ever realise their feelings, since society, jealous friends, fear and giant mechs keep tearing them apart. However, the whole thing was ruined by melodrama and ridiculous amounts of fanservice.
Art was colourful and pretty but totally sloppy and lazy at places. The sound was beautiful--I honestly can't believe it. They must have blown the budget on the sound and hired some 13 year olds to write the script.
The characters were good. We have the basic set-up, dumb and irritating victim, cool, uber-amazing girl who has lesbian and homicidal self-destructive tendencies, and the loser male. Everyone else was just props for these three. It could have been handles better, the characterisation.
I'll be lying if I said this anime was great stuff. Was it unfabulous? Certainly not, so do give it a shot.
Kaishaku created anime; displays cameos of their animes: Kannazuki no Miko, UFO Princess Valkyrie, Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto, Steel Angel Kurumi.
In the Kannazuki no Miko prospect, it displays the relationship of the alternate characters of Chikane and Himeko, Kaon and Himiko.
Same creators. Also has a very trainwreck-type plotline and quite a few characters may look "familiar." :)
This anime is not only created by the same person, but the characters kind of resemble other characters from his past animes, especially Kannazuki no Miko. After watching Kannazuki no Miko, you will have somewhat of an understanding for why some characters are the way they are, etc. And besides that, both anime are beautufully done and each have their own uniqueness to them!
Same design, similar characters
-Pretty much same storyline
-About the same character design
-Some characters look pretty alike
Love. A good thing or a bad thing? What if it gets in the way of your whole life`s purpose? is it still good? Girls and boys both cry because of theri loss, can you stand not crying? Test yourself against crying your eyes out and laughing till you fall over in this magical anime full of love and loss. Is all fair in love and war?
Two of the characters look similar to Chikane and Himeko off of Kannazuki no miko,
And it has the Robot Fights too,
