The Carnival Moment is a time when several narratives from Type-Moon's famous works intersect. It happens every decade in an entirely new dimension, and those who have never run into each other can meet. And what's more, all individuals involved gain the opportunity to fulfill any of their wishes! However, they will have to come a long way, as they will need to partake in contests.

In Carnival Phantasm, various characters are put into situations that ridicule their own worlds. Nevertheless, they all have the same objective: to win the contests by any means necessary!

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Carnival Phantasm was made in celebration of Type-Moon's 10th anniversary.

On the other hand, if you are familiar with anything Type-Moon, then prepare for the best parody series in recent memory. In short, your knowledge of Type-Moon lore is directly proportional to the amount of enjoyment you will get out of this series. ...

Story- This don't need no story, its basically a whole bunch of comedic skits, so the presence of story is neither needed nor wanted

Art - It is an ONA so art isn't really gonna be that good considering the budget ONA's get, but the use of simplistic art favors the humor, in fact it wouldn't have been as good if the art was high budget.

Sound - Best Opening ever made, in all of creation.

Characters - All the Type Moon Characters, made brilliantly hilarious. Best Type Moon Fan service ever

Enjoyment - This represents that maximum ...

Anime Review No.12

This Overview doesn’t have any spoilers but just teaser on what you can expect to this anime once you started watching it.
