The world is ruled by spirits, goblins, and all manner of strange creatures. Human beings are persecuted, to the very point of extinction. One day, a golem and a lone human girl meet.

This is a record of the pair, one a member of a ruined race, the other a watchman of the forest. It tells of their travels together and of the bond between father and daughter.

Jotaro is finally a good dad!

This anime is very beautiful. All the visuals and character designs are neat. The characters are interesting, at least the Golem. The backgrounds are nicely created and they look real good. The animation is good even though it really does not need much. The opening is surprisingly good. The music is quite weird but catchy as well. The visuals in the opening are beautiful. The ending is also cool looking. The song is sung by Somalis voice actor. For some reason the ending is CG but the anime doesn't have or use CG

This is honestly the best anime of this season for me. I look forward to it each and every week. Here is why!

The way the show presents itself, it's charming, peaceful, beautiful. All of the above. From not just the sound, the story, the characters, but it's art too. It's really beautiful.

Speaking of the story, I honestly feel tears are going to be flowing down my face by the end of this with what read more

• Somali to Mori no Kamisama is an emotional and adventurous anime that stems off of a wholesome premise, the bond between parent and child. Throughout the anime we are exposed to various themes such as loss, discrimination, and bonding.

Story (7):
• The story is focused on our two travelers, Somali and the Golem. Due to certain circumstances, the Golem is watching over Somali as her father figure while they search for her real parents. A premise that is not very unique on it's own but is enhanced by the odd combination of human and golem.
• As mentioned, Somali is a human in a world filled read more
