Recommendation: Skip it.

Yurei Deco is the kind of anime that cultivates an image of being intelligent social commentary, but ultimately is only interested in the trappings of that and has nothing interesting to say. The first thing you'd think upon being introduced to this series is that it's some sort of satire of the metaverse or social media, but this is instead simply a setting for a generic adventure story. It would have been better even with some ham-handed "social media is like a drug, man" Adbusters bullshit, but doesn't even attempt that. The closest thing there is to social commentary is the Orwellian "Customer ...

May be I should wait the show to finish to review it. But doing it now could be usefull to people that haven´t watched it and aren´t sure if they should. Honestly I wasn´t sure if I should give it a try because the posters and the synopsis are a little confusing. So I would like to make another First approach.

In the context of Yurei Deco, people live with a "Deco" in their eyes that lets them see the real world in Augmented reality with shared data with every citizen, like being in real live and a game with skins for the world in ...

If I were to describe this series, I’d describe it as a mixture of Ernest Cline’s “Ready Player One”, and George Orwell’s “1984”, but in a very kid-friendly sense. It tackles themes of a futuristic world of augmented reality and information control, and in a sense, it almost has me fearing if this kind of world is what we’ll see in the future.

In a nutshell, Yurei Deco is set in a world filled with advanced technology where people see the world through “Deco”, which is a compulsory piece of equipment for citizens that allows them to see things in augmented reality. The other function of ...

If I could give this show a 6.5 I honestly would. While it's not a bad product at all, I find it to be very creative and interesting. There are just slight issues for me, that can't really give it a 7. But it also feels wrong giving it a 6. Let me explain what I mean by that.

Art: 8
This is very much a main highlight, as it's style is very cartoon like, and different to what you would find in a normal anime. It honestly gives me Deca-dance vibes, in terms of their more cartoon looking parts. Which I can appreciate. It'll stand out ...

Style over substance is a phrase I’d never use to describe Yurei Deco. That’s not because I think it does or does not have either style or substance, but because it manages to have both, yet doesn’t know how to utilize them to their fullest capacity. It has all the tools to invent itself as a visually marvelous show with a creative critique on modern society. Given the artstyle, use of visuals, and worldbuilding, was Yurei Deco able to deliver on my expectations or did I set the bar too high?

Yurei Deco presents the viewer with a dystopian future that mirrors our current reality. That ...

In the world of anime, the sky's the limit for creativity, for the ones that are created in its original structure with no source backing it up. But focusing on this season alone, while at most times with originals like the A-1 Pictures Saturday shows of Lycoris Recoil and Engage Kiss beckoning both form and function, together with style over substance (one good, one bad), where then should we draw the line between the two? And that my friends, is how Yurei Deco is constructed to be just that: a somewhat "style over substance" show that has a unique take on advanced technology.

Through the watchful ...

Another summer 2022 showing us that a good idea and good art style are not enough to carry an entire show. I felt like this show had overwhelming potential -- the animation is great, the art style is very colorful and vibrant (although maybe a little prescribed), and I thought that, at first, the story could be interesting. However, it basically just turned into the same old litany that we've been hearing since 2005: "social media is bad!" "not everything you read on the internet is true!" etc. etc. Basically Babby's First 1984, except not nearly as engaging or compelling. Had this been released like ...

It's kinda sad to see Yurei Deco kinda underrated, because it's pretty impressive, atleast for me personaly.

Despite how it cartoony looks, the overall art of it still looks so dang good, the soundtracks dope, and most importantly the messages that author want to deliver actually pretty deep.

The story kinda reminds me about how evil Facebook Community Standard is.
The Show itself trying to show what really happen in this current digital era where Illusory Truth Effect, Privacy Violations, and, States Censorship made us live in a bubble, and made us forget how reality looks like.

This series really deserves more audiences.

What a disappointment Yurei Deco is. Even the very different and nice art style could not save this anime.
I had a lot of expectations for an anime of Science SARU, Yuasa's company. In fact, we started well. The first two episodes were very good. The protagonist is curious and fun. She, like us viewers, is introduced to a new occult world.  It is the world below the cyber world of social networks and the dominant society. And that' s the first problem. We are introduced to a world that is a bit "distopic", but the characters don't find it that way. In truth, this is ...

Yurei Deco gives you a lot to ponder. Berry and her detective club, made up of a society’s remnants, live in a Cyber world where one’s self worth and security are built on a fragile system of what can be an ephemeral currency vulnerable to computer glitches and hacking. Nothing seems real or concrete in the Deco world as its citizens view the world through implanted deco lenses which distort the truth. The technology intrudes in everyone’s personal lives as the government scrubs unwanted information and can even scrub out entire identities of its citizens making them outcasts. Indeed, technology can seriously overreach. Amidst all ...

Another great anime from the Science Saru, it actually brings an interesting spin on dystopia without becoming too pseudo-intellectual. The episodic format works great in this anime; you get to see enough of the world to see how it works. The characters are interesting and fun, with just enough backstory for you to care about (some a bit more, some a bit less). Most importantly the anime actually has a very consistent theme all through its run and stays consistent with it at the end, resolving itself in a way that is believable to the world.
Plus it is an anime original and those are ...

The Anime Meta-verse.

If you want an extreme example of what out-of-touch tech billionaires like potential alien Mark Zuckerberg want virtual reality to be in the future, then look no further than “Yurei Deco” to give you that touch of external dread whilst you watch a pretty good story.

In a futurist world everyone has virtual reality implants in their eyeballs called “Decos” which not only allow them to full-dive into virtual reality, but also allows them to decorated reality around them with cool, colourful decorations and stuff which is handy when you don’t want to see things like piles of garbage that cause disease or ...

Here is my review of this anime in 2022!

Story (7)
The story is about people that live on a planet where love is important to survive. But there is a rumor about mysterious zero that makes love in some place become zero. That's why the main character and her friend want to discover who is this mysterious zero. But I didn't really like the ending... Maybe it's better that you watch it by yourself.

Art (9)
The art for this anime is very good! I love the animation style that they use especially the soft color that looked like a semi-hologram in my opinion.

Sound (8)
All the sounds that ...

Yurei Deco is a great childrens show that's enjoyable for adults, that's what it is. There is nothing deep in it, nothing is explained or mulled over in great detail, everything is what it is on the surface and nothing more, all the messages and morale is served up front and spelled out.

It's a cut and dry mystery adventure show for kids where some cool stuff happens and there is unjust things happening in the world that only the kids and the outcasts understand because the adults are too busy doing what they believe to be the right thing. But is it right? That's what ...
