First and foremost, I went into Chaika without greatly high expectation as I hadn't heard too much about it, it was one of the least hyped shows airing at the moment.
And it turns out that it was also one of the most underrated!
So let's begin...

Story - 9/10.
The story of this anime may not look particularly original if you only read the synopsis, but getting into it it provides a really satisfying adventure-filled romp through various places. I didn't find the story either too simple or too complex, it was filled with just the right amount of twists and turns and didn't overcomplicate itself with overly read more

Every season there are a handful of shows that are overlooked and underrated. Hitsugi no Chaika takes this fact, and shoves it down peoples' throats by making itself even more underrated. Before the Spring 2014 season began, I had mediocre expectations of Chaika. But sooner than later, I found myself as one of the lucky ones to stay with it all the way through.

The basic premise of an abandoned princess believed to be dead being accompanied by two powerful and strong "siblings" who help said princess is presented in both. Although the personalities of these princesses are quite different from each other they both seem to hold some sort of great power within them. The use of magic and powers is found in both and portrayed in a time similar to the Middle Ages when aristocracy ruled the land. Both girls are the key to changing the current status quo and pose a threat to the stability and preservation of their societies current state.

Both protagonist happens to bump into a girl, and without knowing much about them decided to help them. They soon travel and help protect the girl without much decision.

Both anime involves fighting and magical weapons/power, both girls use guns while the male protagonist uses a sword. If you enjoy magical fighting than you'll like these both.
