Synopsis

Gods and ghosts only exist in fairy tales, right? That's the impression that high school girl Tamki Kasuga has before she goes to live with her grandmother in the remote village of Kifumura. After being attacked by strange creatures upon her arrival, she is soon informed that females in her family contain the blood of the Tamayori Princess, who has the responsibility and power of keeping gods and ghosts sealed away so that they can't harm the general public. At first Tamaki has trouble believing this, but having five beautiful young men following her everywhere she goes acting as her guardians goes a long way towards convincing her.

There's more to this job than Tamaki first realizes, however, and the path that lies ahead of her is fraught with peril and danger. Will she be able to successfully take on the heavy role that has been put on her shoulders?

Background

The first episode was pre-aired on March 6, 2012 on YTV.

The Japanese voice cast for the main characters remains unchanged from the original PS2 otome game that the anime is based off of.

Making an anime based off a visual novel is never easy especially one aimed at a specific target audience, or in this case, the female market. There could be mistakes through adaption, the delivering of the characters, or in other cases, not sticking with the story. There is much to be said regarding what can make an extravagent series out of a visual novel these days especially from a series a game that is not too well known compared to some of the more popular series like FSN, Higurashi, etc. Will Hiiro no Kakera carry out the task of getting through the right audience and read more

I loved the art, the characters were portrayed in a good way. The area of the story was beautiful.

I'll admit, when I started watching the first season, I nearly gave up. I felt like it was wasting my time, I hated the fact it took so long for The Tamoyri Princess to fully come into her real self, but other than that it was great.

And finally the second season started, and we got some action! Hiiro no Kakera has actually become one of my favorites.

So, if you like anime with action and romance you should definitely watch this one.

My very first review so please :P

Anyways honestly this entire anime/storyline/plot the whole thing about it, was everything i used to dream of as a child.
Being told one day, you're some important princess that must "save" the world, but in this story she must protect an important seal or this monster will terrorize the world, which is practically the same thing!
And it is a reverse harem, which is a bonus.
But pretty much this is a really beautiful story, i'm going to be sure to check out the manga here right away.
Beautiful opening theme song, it's just really beautiful the whole thing about it. read more

I am reminded of the Anime called “Asura Cryin'”. The first season came out in April of 2009 and the second came out in October of 2009. The first season of the Anime actually shares a lot of the problems that “Hiiro No Kakera” happens to have. One of the problems happens to be the fact there were signs that the series had potential but the whole first season falls flat.

However, the second season ended up giving those of us who gave it a chance a pleasant surprise. Similarly “Hiiro No Kakera” has the same potential to possibly wow people with the second read more
