Phoron Tatara's no ordinary musician. As one of the rare Dantists who can summon elder spirits using music called Commandia, his gift is so strong that his spirit partner is none other than the infamous Corticarte Apa Lagranges. Sure, she may look like a young girl in her human form, but you don't get nicknames like "The Crimson Annihilator" and "The Bloody Duchess" for sitting back and watching the daisies grow.

Now, at the behest of the Tsuge Divine Music Player Office, this dynamic duet travels the continent of Polyphonica on Phoron's combination motorcycle/organ, following the song of the open road, orchestrating rescues and generally fixing whatever's baroque! Some musicians wait for a muse to hit them, but Phoron makes his work for scale!

There aren't many anime that heavily feature music. The most well known would be Macross (any of them), Nodame Cantabile and La Corda Doro, and those anime that do rely on music are often reasonably straightforward affairs. Every so often though, an anime basen on music will appear that deviates from what we've pretty much come to accept as the norm. Happiness! is one such show, as is Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica.

The series is based on the highly successfuly visual novel created by Ocelot in 2006, which spawned several light novel adaptations, a manga version in March 2007, and finally an anime in April 2007. Since read more

okay. my first review. let's see how this plays out.

the story was cool. kinda like a master has a spirit fairy like thing and you give it the ultimate power by playing music. some people are preppy and others are emo. as you watch it, later on a story unfolds.

this show was umm... colorful. i didn't pay much attention to the art. simple clothing, jumpsuit and a school uniform. i like the wings on the spirits though.

something that can not get below a 10! if the master has no song to play, the spirit that they made a read more

Writers note: This is my first review so be “gentle” =D

Firstly let me start by saying that I´m not the biggest romance/school/drama genre fan there is but from time to time even I need to take a break and watch something just for the sake of seeing something “different” from what I usually prefer/watch and as luck would have it I managed to stumble upon a jewel that nicely surprised me.

Now that the intro is done let me get straight to the point. Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica (later only SSP) can be seen as your every-day normal romance/slice of life/fantasy anime with all the basic read more

Well what can i say, Downright Disappointing?
From it's promising setting of a boy who made a contract with a special spirit when he was young, got seperated, has grown up, and then got reunited with the spirit after about ten years to do what, some random job that helps people? There is absolutely no story in this as it is episodic and the only thing you can hope for in a next episode is for some good music that they'll hopefully play(since they dont each ep even though it's a music focused anime).
At least they did have some decent music in there with read more
