Dreaming of a magical world every night, the young Toramizu Ginta yearns to be able to go there. With only his friend Koyuki believing in his dreams, Ginta remains positive despite the slander he receives from others over his dreams. But his wishes are answered, as one day a large door appears in front of Ginta, summoning him to the land of MAR Heaven. In this land, the weapons known as ARMS exist. While initially Ginta greatly enjoyed the discovery of this magical world, he soon learns of the terrible wars that have once plagued MAR Heaven and the upcoming war that may soon appear.


VIZ Media licensed only the first 52 episodes of MÄR, and released only the first 16 on DVD before cancelling the rest of the releases.

i'm going to do this review since there is no review for thing anime yet. now i feel that this anime is underrated since MAR is a really good shounen anime. MAR is also an anime that would make you laugh in each episode and keep you interest in the story but now i think i will start the review.

story- the story is kind of unoriginal where the main character is transported to a fantasy land to help stop the evil force and save that world. yah we've seen it before, but made me keep watching because of interesting ways the fight. yes they read more

Simple put, MAR Heaven is so damn fun to watch.

The story revolves around a young boy named Ginta. He has these weird dreams every night he sleeps where he's in this magical world filled with weird people and creatures. One day at school, a portal opens and pretty much the journey begins clear and cut like that.

Sounds stupid right? Think again because it isn't. One day at school, a weird portal opens and so Ginta decides to go inside the portal upon having a choice by some weird monster that rules over the portal. From there, Ginta meets, as in his dreams, weird creatures and read more

Okay so I have been a fan of this anime since a long time and since I think that the anime is underrated i am doing this review so Enjoy :)

10/10 STORY: Okay so I guess the plot isn't that original. You know the whole "going into another world to fight evil and save the world" but it isn't your typical story too since it does have some detailes that just make you go "wow i didn't see that coming for sure"

10/10 ART: I usually really like it when in an Anime the art is clean and in really huigh quality while the read more

I really love this anime personally. I don't care what about the people who say this anime was too cliche or whatever. They also call this a kid anime. I'm 16 and i really enjoyed the whole thing. This anime really grabs your attention and keeps you laughing throughout the thing.

The story has been used before, but I really like stories where the main character leaves our world to become part of another.

I really liked the art style for this anime. I can't explain why, I just did.

I don't have much to say about it lol. The characters each had read more
