The overarching plot left a lot to be desired—it was very shallow. This is sort of to be expected of something that's only 50 minutes long. A lot of OVAs come off as rushed because the creators jam too much into too short a time. Munto's story, on the other hand, didn't feel rushed. It just didn't feel good.

The subplot involving Yumemi's friend Suzume was interesting, though. I'd like to see an entire OVA dedicated to it... thirteen year olds making decisions for the rest of their lives based on emotions are always fun to watch.

I think my favorite scene must have been the one 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

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

Munto is the first work of Kyoto Animation, Mundo is the king of a magical kingdom that floats in the sky thanks to a magical power called Akuto. One day when the Akuto is reaching is end, Mundo descendes to earth searching for a girl that have the power to restore the link between the Earth and the magical kingdom.

Story: 6 out of 10

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

Art: 7 out of 10

At first i really didn't like the art but that's because i already saw many animes until today read more
