If you quickly pass by Strange Dawn thinking that it’s just a happy little kid’s adventure, then I’m afraid that you’re missing out on some interesting drama and political, bloody battles that are packaged in a simple, yet very unique design. If you’ve ever seen Kaiba or Shadow Star Narutaru, you’d know not to judge an anime by its cover. Strange Dawn is one of those anime—it’s warm and childish on the outside, but thoughtful and serious on the inside.

STORY

At first glance, the story of Strange Dawn doesn’t sound very unique at all. Two high-school girls get sent to another world and are expected to read more

Very obscure anime that I saw all of one time as a kid Arabic dubbed on TV and finally found again after years of wondering if I'd imagined it. And it is beautiful. Children's rating though? That's a lie - the only reason anyone would have to believe that this is a children's anime is the fact that the characters look like little Teletubbies. But it's an anime with lots of blood and violence, themes of war, love triangles and melodrama - heck, there's even (somewhat...) an attempted rape scene! If there's one major problem it's the very abrupt ending, as if the show had read more

Strange Dawn is a surprisingly good show for how obscure it is, but has some crucial flaws that prevent it from being great. In this case I think the flaws are more interesting to look at, so that's primarily what I'll be focusing on, but keep in mind that I think it's an overall good show worth watching.

The writing is mostly solid, with a well-paced and engaging plot tackling interesting themes. The characters are well-rounded and seldom completely good or evil. The animation is also well-done, especially considering it's a 2000 show. The background music is charming and appropriate to the tone, and the voice read more

Came across this when scouring around '00 for cute anime girls. It's actually pretty good, randomly. Doesn't look like anyone really watched it. Old-school isekai with two cute protagonists getting caught up in these little chibi people's war, and yeah it's real war they kill each other and use comfort women and such. I laughed for a minute straight when the little chibi guys made their initial appearance and just started murdering each other, but they've got a little wartime plotline with lots of interpersonal drama going on that is a little more sophisticated than you might expect.

When it comes down to it, I mainly read more
