Synopsis

In a world inhabited by demons, cyclopes, and other fantastic creatures, humans stand apart as the outcasts. Quick to anger, the human race engaged in a war that all but wiped them out. The few humans that remain are seen as a delicacy, serving no purpose but to be hunted down and eaten.

One day, Golem, a wandering protector of nature, encounters a lone human child while patrolling. Inspired by her enthusiasm, he takes the girl, named Somali, under his wing. Together, the duo embarks on a journey to find Somali's parents and bring her home.

A cute girl? You got that here.
A depressed story? You'd be crying twice.
Interesting characters? Without any doubt.
A good father figure? Better than mine (kidding).
Thoughtful moments? It's deeper than you think.

This anime is everything you could wish for. From the character gimmicks to the grandiose story. You wouldn't immediately think about any of this at first as it has a slow start but when it starts for real it goes at 360 in 6 seconds and you can not go back. Oh no you can't, and that's a good thing. Why go back when you can experience such a thing in the first place? Its something ...

*spoiler warning*

Hot take: Somali to Mori no Kamisama is not primarily about the relationship between a father and daughter but Golem discovering humanity through his relationship with Somali. When I say “humanity,” I am not talking about the human race; Golem is finding his human spirit: empathy, love, purpose, etc. At the beginning of the anime, Golem states his species live exactly a millennia, and the time he has left is a little over a year. Through the first half of the show, he gives the exact amount of days he has left to live. Eventually he stops giving specifics, instead broad estimations such as ...

Somali to Mori no Kamisama is a masterpiece of storytelling. It is a great adventure that displays the different ideologies of creatures, their lives and how going through life changes you as a person.

From the start, the anime tells you that you are about to embark on a journey and to get ready for the different ideas you will find.

I think the 2 biggest reasons that affect how much I rate an anime are how much I enjoy the anime and how great the characters are. Of course an anime about going into the unknown and exploring what the world has to offer ...
