It seems nobody has actually bothered in making a review.

This, in very few words, is basically an Isekai anime, or that is what it seems to be so far, for the origin of certain characters is yet to be revealed.

This anime is probably among the most underrated this season. I have to admit the story and the art doesn't make it something for everyone to like, though; this anime is very criticized due to its... let's call it non-amazing CGI, after all (This anime uses 3D animation for its characters).

Regarding the story and characters, I am not going to lie, they are kind of read more

*Later on this review* "it could very well be defined as:
A) a genius, new perspective on isekai anime
B) the messy execution of an apocalypse
C) a thought-through story on a paradoxical cycle that has finally burst.
D) an extreme commitment to mystery and philosophy."

Disclaimer: this review is not meant to be objective.

Abstract (for those who don't want to read further):
Kemurikusa is an anime that starts off empty and gradually makes the viewer sense emotions. At the beginning I felt like the characters lacked depth and life, but it all makes sense as the episodes go by. The story was definitely not developed on various important read more

Seems like most people didn't like the anime, but for me this anime is incredible.

The most noticiable thing you'll see is surely the CG animation. I thought it was bad at first, but now I see how it works better than 2D. The CG looks really beautiful with the backgrounds, and I started liking it. Even though its good, it could be better. What I like the most in the art style are the colors, the shining colors make an gorgeous contrast with the black and gray backgrounds.

<SPOILER ALERT> I can't say anything sure about the story now. Yes, the story is doing just ok read more

SPOILER ALERT if you haven't watched the show yet read at your own risk

Alright gentlemen fasten your seat belts for we are going to delve into the big failure that this show has fallen into
from what this show could offer, it is nothing compared to what it did
the story takes place in an apocalyptic world at the end of civilization
among all the wreck and collapsed buildings it revolves around a group of girls (it is implied that they are not human which i'll get into in the characters section) who happen to fight Unknown entities so called "Bugs"/"Mushi" in order read more
