I'm actually questioning who's voting and if these idiots watched at least 1 min of the show.
When I'm saying this is one of the best show of his kind I'm taking in consideation all my list of anime and manga, my opinion might actually be a little bios considering i grow up watching anime like digimon, pokemon,... in fact this show reminds me of a little bit of them (minus the the action, which is not read more

To be completely frank, Merc is the best thing about this anime. If she wasn't in it, I probably wouldn't even have watched it. But as for my rating:

Story: I can't say I particularly cared for it. It's a rather charming one, but one that I feel has been done to death, except this time it's more progressive as one might say. Ironically, this actually helped to improve it in my eyes, and I'm supposed to be some evil troglodyte.

Ever wondered what an anime made by Disney would look like? Well, Merc Storia is the anime for you!

Plot (3/10):
The story is about a boy setting out on a journey to recover his water fairy memories. Well not really, it’s an excuse for them to travel around the generic fantasy world to help people because plot. As a result the premise is really weak and aimless.

Characters (1/10):
I find all the characters to be annoying, one dimensional stereotypes, so I never bothered remembering any of their names.

The MC is a healer that really needs to grow some backbone. He doesn’t have to help anyone read more
