Hatori Chise is only 16, but she has lost far more than most. With neither family nor hope, it seems all doors are closed to her. But, a chance encounter began to turn the rusted wheels of fate. In her darkest hour, a mysterious magus appears before Chise, offering a chance she couldn't turn down. This magus who seems closer to demon than human, will he bring her the light she desperately seeks, or drown her in ever deeper shadows?

As someone who is keeping up with the manga, I have to say Wit Studio is doing an awesome job (as expected) with this series and I'm really glad they picked this up. To me the pacing is just fine, and if it stays consistent then I think this will definitely be the series to watch for the Fall Season and even 2017.

If you enjoy stories like Natsume Yuujinchou or have seen Mushishi then you will definitely enjoy this series. Although the main character Chise can see spirits/yokai like Natsume, this story is way more of an emotional ride and a little darker than Natsume read more

I honestly thought I would enjoy this anime, but so far it has disappointed me massively. It is a beautifully drawn show, but behind all the pretty colours, I find nothing but a lacklustre plot that is executed quite poorly.

I had watched the 3 episode OVA as a way of testing the water, seeing if this show was going to be something I would enjoy. And lo and behold, the OVA was good! Granted, it wasn't amazing, but I believed at the time that the anime was going to blow me away with its amazing art and atmosphere. And the art is amazing! It read more

This series gave me a Mushishi vibe, it's relaxing, it's sometimes deep, it's emotional, it's cute but this time it has a lot of drama.
The warmth of the story and its past is very touching, as we can relate with it (in different grades).

Story: 9
So far so good. It is somewhat generic (magic stuff happening in London), but the way that is told and the background of Chise gives you some strong messages that get diluted in the warm and charming characters

Art: 8
Nice art, not the best, but it works nicely.

Sound: 9
The OST is great, touching, pretty, delicate.

Characters: 9
The few characters shown so far are read more
