Synopsis

Makoto Nakazono is a high school student with a small dark secret. Since he was little, he has had the mysterious power to see "black entities" that steal souls.

One day, he is suddenly interrogated by one of the "black entities," Akira Seno: "Will you get in our way?"

But Makoto replies with an air of resignation, "There's nothing I can do anyway, so I won't."

At that moment, Makoto didn't notice the threatening shadow approaching his childhood friend Hazuki...

There are two anime studios I can safely say I’m a huge fan of without any real caveats: Ghibli and Studio 4c. The former delivers for me more in terms of consistency, but the latter is by far my favorite in terms of how they use animation. As such, whilst a few of my more Studio Rikka-inclined colleagues were eagerly looking forward to Harmonie, I was more looking forward to Chronus. And I’ve got to say, whilst I don’t think it’s great overall, it delivered way better than the former did.

First off, I loved how the first half or so basically resembled Boogiepop Phantom or read more

To love is Nothing. To be loved is Something. To love and be loved is Everything. The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end.

If two people are meant for each other, it doesn’t mean they have to be together right now or as soon as possible, but they will eventually. Loving the wrong person doesn't mean you're stupid, It was of that person not to appreciate your love. One can not truly experience the beauty of love without enduring the pain that comes with it once it is lost.

A truly great romance series I’ve watch for movie type. Even though read more

No spoilers

Kyro no sumika: chronus has a somewhat more minimalistic but fluent animation(I do not mind more minimalistic animation) but what it lacks in details it compensates with the use of effects, POV, camera motion and especially the sound effect.
For a one episode story it did more than many animes cannot do in 12 episodes:
- It presented enough detail to understand the setting but still left enough out to wanting to explore more.
- Even though characters had classic personalities there were still character development.
- And it told a story without plot holes (or I didn´t notice)

The story on the other hand wasn´t original but quite read more
