Story: Cliched fanfiction-level shit. I could talk about the shitty underage romance subplot (a loner encounters a 13 yo girl and they fall in love...in the river), or how fucking socially retarded Munto is: appears out of nowhere and demands a girl give him her "power", when she doesn't even know who he is or what he's talking about. Tells her to "believe in herself", and she actually says "I believe in myself" when all she did was touch Munto. That was literally all she had to do. "Believe in yourself" is literally the most overused line in the history of shitty fanfiction. I would read more

This is one of those interesting looking shows from Kyoto animation. This story seems a bit forced in the beginning. The story actually revolves around Yumemi Hidaka instead of Munto so I’m not really all that sure why the show is named after Munto. It should have been called magical girl or destiny girl, which would be closer to it I think.

I don’t really understand why there is a storyline within a story line. It seems like it confuses it. Fortunately, it makes up for it by the same feeling of Air and Clannad. This has the same feeling as them where if revolves around read more

They have an interesting setting but unfortunately they lost time with meaningless actions that didn't make any contribution to the story.

The art style in this anime was amazing! I love it so much! But the same can't be said for the plot. Don't get me wrong. The first episodes of this anime were good and made me want to see the end but the ending was horrible.
The main character in this series sees islands in the sky but wishes she didn't because everyone damns that as abnormal or weird. So, she carries around an umbrella so she can't see them anymore.
One day, she is walking to school when a strange man with red hair comes out of nowhere and read more
