Chi's Sweet Home has a pretty linear storyline: a kitty who lost her mom and now wanders on a journey to find her. She always thinks about her mother on her journey, and always has kind memories of her. So far I've seen there aren't so many obstacles in her way, nor any big trouble. This anime is to make you shout "KAWAII", it doesn't have a complicate plot.
The art is linear, clear and chibish for the most characters, Chi in the first place, but also humans; it fits well the kind of this show. Expressions are so funny, believe me they'll make you laugh and enjoy yourself while watching.
It also fits quite well the animation, and though there isn't so much outstanding background music, there are often carillons' sounds, or funny music to fit funny scenes. The opening song (there's no ED) is cute and childish enough to make you melt.
Chi is sooooo sweet, and everybody of you must at least agree with that. Also every other character shown is friendly. All the humans shown at the time I'm writing are pretty funny themselves. I'm really glad nobody hurt the little Chi, elseway it would have also hurt my heart.
Her story might turn out being something funny, sad or sweet, it's too early to say that. I really enjoy Chi's Sweet Home, and although I think 2:50 minutes are too short for an episode I enjoy every second of it. It's probably the cutest anime I've ever seen! read more

The plot is great, even if it follows the outline of a typical Shonen: a greater enemy to defeat as final objective. The storyline however is enough original and rich of inusual particulars, for example the presence only of women as main characters to part Raki and Isley, the control of the enormous power, the awakenings, and the Organization that is incumbent every minute.
The design of the characters is enough anticonventional and inusual: some physical features, like lips or the face seen of profile, well, not everybody will like how they're done. However they are enough pleasant to see, and the design in general terms, as of personages as of scenes and of movements is coherent with the type of anime: raw, dry and connoted in the colors.
Door-bells and other sounds similiar to old rhythm can often be felt as a mysterious prefeeling, thus resembles epic scenes. Battles sometimes also have a rock rhythm. Masanori Takumi did a good job on the OST, especially on some songs like Bishou no Teresa (Teresa's Theme), Ginme no Majo, Hateshinaki Tabiji and Fukaki Mori no Naka. The choice of the rhythms is guessed and coherent with the scenes. Other sounds instead are ostensible, for example the sounds heard during the battle: squeaking of blades, cuts, footsteps and blood that exits from wounds. Also the chosen of dubbers have been good, in my opinion.
Splendid characterization of every character! Even if in the first moment nearly every character can seem cold and calculating (Claire for example in the first episode gives so much this feeling), when you learn to know them, to know their feelings and their past, will born an endured empathy, an example is the story of Teresa and Claire, or the Ofelia's one. Every personage has its fundamental characteristics that distinguish she from all the others Claymores (physically, every claymore is similar to the others, therefore is for their qualities you'll love every single character): there is who, like Jean, has one strongly will, who learns to love, like Teresa, who simply loves, as Raki, and who cannot more survive to the pain like Elena.
Every time that I am watching an episode, I always hope that it does not end that way and I hope that it continues not leaving things as they are, I want more and I'm disappointed to have to wait for one week in order to see the continuation. Every minute of the show very is calculated as in converses as in the amazing, never-boring scenes of action, where the spilling of blood is not fine to himself.
There aren't means ways, you love it or hate it. It's a great shonen, similiar to others but also a lot different. I love it, more the story goes ahead the more it becomes interesting... what else? Can't wait to see the showdown! read more
