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 read more

My goodness, what an interesting show this was to watch. Had many good qualities and bad qualities and plenty of fan service. I can't say that I am disappointed in the slightest, especially with the great ending it had.

Acting for the most part is quite mixed, decent and mediocre at the same time. Now Himeko's voice sounds a little spacey and a little scratchy at times as well. Almost like the VA's is trying to do a high voice. While Jennifer Sekiguchi certainly makes for a lovable Himeko acting skills is something to be desired for her.

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.

This is similar in the way the characters are drawn. The main character, Hatsuki, looks and acts a lot like Kurusegawa Himeko. This is the same for Hatsumi and Himemiya Chikane. If you look at this anime you will find yourself thinking of Kannazuki no Miko because of the characters and just because of the way the story generally makes you feel. I suggest it because of the magic in it, the comedy and because if you liked Kannazuki no Miko and the relationship between Himeko and Chikane then you will like this anime.
