On the last day of the school year, 14-year-old Ichika Tachibana comes across an old, busted mirror in an unused campus building. When Manatsu, a mysterious girl from inside the mirror, steps out and offers her friendship for the summer, she also offers Ichika magical powers. Now, Manatsu must help Ichika unlock the powers of the 12 Djinn in order to complete her magic training... but perhaps this is something that will prove too difficult a task. Some offers may appear to be too good to be true and this one just may turn out to do more harm than good.

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 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 read more

Like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, first appearances can be deceiving when you watch Uta Kata. What starts off as a slice-of-life/ mahou shoujo title with hints of dark elements to come becomes increasingly dark and serious as it dabbles into coming-of-age and life-threatening dilemmas that our female lead Ichika comes to face and some focus on touchy issues like eating disorders and child abuse. The series takes its time with building up its plot dropping hints that those close to Ichika have some form of connection to the trials she is facing, some of whom aren't as they would seem on the surface, and more read more

"Do you want to accept this child, no matter what?"

This anime is criminally underrated and it feels like no one knows about it. I only got to know it through another user I know, who loves magical girls and coming of age-anime too and she recommended it to me. Then I looked here for Madoka Magica recs and found Uta Kata, decribed as a darker take on the magical girl-genre.
Sadly, this wasn't released in Europe either, like many other anime unfortunately had read more
