Most anime series can be neatly categorized into some kind of cliche-ridden group or another: magical girls, mecha, sports, slice of life, ecchi. "Magical girl" series, for example, will always have prepubescent girls with colorful wands, long transformation sequences and brains the size of a Chinese dumpling. That, my dear kiddies, is "cliche". It causes cancer.

Brigadoon, I am happy to report, does not suffer the cliches usually associated with certain anime categories or genres. It simply doesn't belong to any. In fact, It will quietly defy all attempts at categorization and will summarily step on your face if you attempt it.

As others have reviewed before, this anime is very hard to categorize and it's due to that, which makes this anime shine. It's not simply a clone of another series. It's what every anime should aspire to be.

First of all, it has the human weapon as male (a rather good looking one at that) rather than female as seems to be the standard in anime, seemingly push this from an ecchi shounen aspect to a more shoujo one. Most series if they want to reverse it, either make the human weapon as some ugly robot, as some monster hybrid or some female cute monster. That's read more

Recommendations

Both are two anime that are legitimately depressing.
Also both are two of the best anime ever made.
Both look like generic, light-hearted shows at the beginning... until the plot really begins to kick in. Both also involve a young girl living through quite a bit of hardship.

Opening Theme

"Blue of Wind, Green of Sea (Kaze no Ao, Umi no Midori) " by Ikuko

Ending Theme

"Rainbow Colored Treasure (Niji Iro no Takaramono)" by KAORI
