From her hometown to her daily life on Kurken Island, everything surrounding Reisalin "Ryza" Stout is painfully ordinary. Despite being the daughter of a hardworking farmer, she would rather go on pretend adventures as she explores almost every corner of the island. However, the fact that it is against the local customs to venture off Kurken Island irritates her to no end.

One day, wishing for something interesting to finally happen in her life, Ryza escapes on a boat with her two good friends: the bookworm Tao Mongarten and the aspiring warrior Lent Marslink. Arriving at a nearby forest, the trio stumbles into Klaudia Valentz, the daughter of a visiting merchant who also wandered off into the woods.

As the naive and underprepared group ventures further, they run into dangerous monsters. Thankfully, they are rescued by the alchemist Empel Vollmer and his skilled bodyguard Lila Decyrus. This fateful encounter will lead Ryza to the key that will change her life forever—the creative and wonderful world of alchemy.

Best feel-good, slice of life, female protag anime that I've seen in years. Honestly, a lot of the negative reviews I read just didn't make sense.

Ryza no Atelier is a great show if you're looking for a lighthearted coming of age story that still maintains that childhood innocence to it. It breaks away from the "teenaged classroom" model and gives us a freah take on "kids just being kids and finding their own way to become adults."

The ...

This is a very pretty and well made anime, but there’s something…. missing.

CyGames makes good stuff. I wouldn’t deny that. The last one I really got into was Granblue Fantasy… it’s a good one to compare this to. It looks excellent- nice lines and crisply drawn characters always on-model; beautiful colors and nice filters like for sunset scenes etc; good composition, good voices, and a very nice soundtrack. It's a nice place to be.

Ryza is the star of the show and looks the part. She’s bubbly and hopeful and confident and fun. Her fashion style- Ryza’s tight red shorts and thigh-length sandal-boots + a ...

It is difficult to understand what Koei Tecmo's goal was when they funded this anime. I would like to assume that the idea was to promote and boost the extraordinary Atelier Ryza franchise.

If that was the idea, then we have to ask ourselves: what was going through their heads when they were developing the story?
Koei Tecmo had the opportunity to create a great story, to take advantage of their incredible characters, and thus captivate the world with the extraordinary world of Atelier Ryza.

However, instead, we are faced with an incredibly bland story with no depth. Simply put, there is no story. Atelier Ryza can be ...
