I know that for most people when they see a show with a sub 6 rating on MAL they instantly must think that it is a terrible show that should only be viewed to see what terrible shows are like. But that's not true. I've seen several good or decent shows with really low ratings.

However, this show is not one of them. In fact, this show is exactly the show that someone thinks of when they see that low MAL score.

Everything about the show is bad. Characters, story, art, sound. It's like critiquing a drawing made while drunk with one's hands behind their back. Yes, read more

This is one of the shows i’ve barely heard anything about during the season it aired, nobody I knew was talking about it, nor was anyone caring about doing so anyway, which alone says a lot about it’s obscurity. I personally was instantly drawn into the show simply from the synopsis, and as someone who had gone through a bit of bullying in primary school, these types of shows instantly catch my attention, and it takes my interest most of the time.

Everyone is constantly nitpicking about “Clione no Akari”’s technical problems: sound and voice acting are terrible, animation is mediocre at best. But are we really seeing ourselves in formalism again? It was à la mode in twenties.
Clione no Akari touches a very important aspect of (not only) Japanese everyday life: bullying. What can be said when the 8-year-old princess was bullied some time ago? Who is safe really? Certainly not Minori, the main character in said story. The authors of the anime (as well as the authors of the light novel) use a very simple psychological trick: they portray Minori-chan as a literal angel. Good, read more

There's quite A NUMBER of shorts for (particularly) this season, and Clione no Akari is one of them.

To starters: Don't go watching this if you don't appreciate just around 10 mins watching a short, only to end up winding about it right at the vert start.

The story resides towards Minori, the bullied one, for being different towards everybody. In that sense, Kyoko and Takashi took notice and begun looking out for her. At certain moments, the (some) sort of connection towards the Clione bears heartstrings towards both of them, and only realizing that Minori had a limited time to live due to an illness, and read more
