It's the last day of the school term in Kamakura Girl's School, and summer is about to begin. Serious but polite 14-year-old Ichika Tachibana is excited to make her summer vacation with her friends a special break to remember! But little does Ichika know that this summer will be more special than she could have ever imagined.

While cleaning in an unused school building, Ichika notices an image of an unfamiliar girl in place of her own reflection in a large mirror. Convinced by her friends that she was just seeing things, she is surprised to see the girl in the mirror later that day, holding her lost cell phone. Introducing herself as Manatsu Kuroki, she comes out of the mirror and hands Ichika's phone back—and to Ichika's surprise, the stones on her cell phone charm have changed colors and now allow her to borrow the power of the 12 Djinn that watch over the world.

Uta Kata is a tale of a young girl who will realize new things through her interactions with these spirits. As the Djinn show her overwhelming sights, they will soon also bring to her overwhelming thoughts...

I'm not really a fan of the Mahou Shoujo genre of anime (and I've watched enough of the type to know this), however I will freely admit that there are some hidden gems in in a genre that is mainly aimed at teenage girls.

Generally the mahou shoujo genre has severe failings in terms of story and character development that more mature anime fans find unappealing. I blame Sailor Moon for this as, even though it enjoyed huge success, it could be thought of as being too successful in that many of the mahou shoujo type shows that followed took their lead from it. This ...

Mixed Feelings
This review comes from a guy who really hasn't watched any Mahou Shoujo anime other than Puni Puni Poemi, which by most would be placed in "Comedy/Parody" anyway. So you could say I have no idea what makes a Mahou Shoujo anime good.
At least I didn't find anything that I really liked with Uta Kata.

Story - The story is neither bad nor good. It's merely a tale of summer break miracles , friendship and love (enjoyment is sold separately). While it's not the worst crap someone has ever produced, it mainly feels like a smoothed-out, over-produced generic mass of magic teenage despair. Just reading the ...

I didn't really expect much from this anime originally. But after finding out that this anime was more than what it seemed, I decided to at least give it a try.

The anime started out a little light-hearted and mysterious. A little too childish for my taste, actually. But yet there was something that kept me going. The awesome music, and the conflict that each of the character had, no matter how normal they seemed, were probably the factors that led me to think that this anime actually had some potential.

But the problem was that the anime left some questions unanswered, and some stories of the ...
