WHAT THE HELL. The score just shot up by .30 lol. Whoever said the score would easily be around 8.40 in a previous thread, well you were right. I'm so happy for this show.
I hate "I told you so"s but in this case I'll make a happy exception :)

We're getting into the phase where my predictions start to significantly diverge, but based on a lot of speculative calcs at this moment I'd say there's a 50/50 chance it'll've reached/surpassed 8.55 on Feb 1st, and it'll be around that time the score settles in.

As for the episode itself, I was worried about how the cours would end but a thematic bookend with a "and the story continues" did the job as well as could be expected.

Season 2 please.

What a ride! They did so many things right and so few "wrong".

Visually stunning, pieces of art one after the other, aesthetically my only grip was the ass and hips of the characters, too "overblown".

The voice acting on point, first Tomoyo for Phos of course, being able to make me love this useless and cheeky MC. Then "Ou" aka "Ventricosus" aka "the snail" with Chiwa Saito. I'm already a Senjougahara fanboy but Chiwa Saito's performance was so good that "Ou" disappearing from the show at episode 5 was one of my biggest regret in this season. "hey! my" "Akari" Diamond, Rutile (yeah big fan of Rutile, loved the voice and the character as a whole), Sensei, Euclase, Antarcticite, Yellow, Amethyst, ... all great, the only problem I had here was with bort's too shonen-like tone in the firsts episodes.

Some of my favourite scenes :
_ the twins amethysts hugging Phos in ep 9 saying "yokata neeee, _ Ippa ni natteeee" with one of them moving their hips in coordination with the voice. The detail that made it sooooo cute and soooo good!
_ Sensei saying something like "owagana"? and making a lunarian ship burst into a colorful cloud. Soooo cool !
_ Diamond and Borft at the end of episode 10! So romantic !
_ Sensei holding Jade up in the air and saying "himitsu!"
_ and the whole episode 4 because of "Ou", in her two forms, the snail and the "sexy" one.


I might have loved every character (except Bort at the beginning) and even the humor was on point.

I loved this show. I will miss them ... until the next season. It's not the end! I want to believe!

The question isn't "What anime do you like?" That is merely a list.
The question is "Why do you like it?" That tells a story. Your story.

That scene between Phos and Cinnabar on the cliff was in the manga. The studio just adapted it early. It's actually the first half of chapter 36.

Despite being an extremely odd show it was so fun and touching at times. Did so many things right and far above the best use of CGI yet.

Easy 9/10. This show needs more people to watch.

I ignored this show at first but after hearing many good things about it I decided to pick it up, and boy that was a smart move on my part. This was a really enjoyable show and the CGI was beautiful to look at. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a second season someday.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Unbelievably great anime! Too bad some people berated it or did not even give a chance to it because of CGI. I actually gave the anime a go because of Kurosawa Tomoyo being in the main role and she totally delivered yet again! It's amazing how voice acting can incredibly enrich an anime. Her performance as Phos was as amazing as her voice acting as Kumiko in Hibike! Euphonium.

And both roles had incredible character development in both anime.

This was undeniably one of the best anime of the entire calendar year of 2017! The biggest worry is whether I will have to resort to the manga or see more of the anime! Kurosawa Tomoyo was so fantastic as Phos that I want to see her as Phos more. And perhaps in more anime roles. I have only seen her in four roles, two of them have been 10/10 performances, on the other two, she hardly had any dialogues (Tina Sprout and Sylphy).

Coming back to the anime, I wonder how much that are left on the dark. While I really missed the Phos before the change in character, the change in character was understandable because of what Phos went through.



The supporting characters like Cinnabar, Dia, Bort, Rutile, Yellow Diamond, Antarcticite, et al had so distinct personalities that it added more to the already intriguing premise.

I never read the manga, but it sure looks to have a lot of potential as a story which I could get from the anime alone. Hopefully we get a sequel.

I gave a 5/5 for an episode since episode 3 and all the way to episode 12, now that's a rarity from me!

9/10 overall from me!

Really enjoyed the show but I disliked this final episode.

Rather than attempting to wrap up ANYTHING they just added to the already abundant amount of unknowns. When shows wrap up the season this way it's just disappointing due to the fact that sequels are exceedingly rare now a days.

Being left with zero closure and introducing additional questions in the eleventh hour is the polar opposite of what I want in a finale. Particularly in shows that don't have guaranteed sequels.

The series was easily an 8/10 for me up until the final episode, which has left somewhat of a bad taste in my mouth...

I am so glad I watched this show. It really surprised me. An example of how CGI shows should be done, it looked really beautiful the whole time.
That cliffhanger... I will have to read the manga now.

I heard the show is really popular in China and Japan so I'm hoping we get second season soon.

Amazing show, in the beginning the CGI surprised me but I got used to it quickly and loved it by the end. It truly fits this type of anime. Phos had a lot of character development and there were some interesting and enjoyable side characters as well. The atmosphere and fighting scenes were great and we had a few emotional moments as well. Also the plot is unique, well at least it's the first time I'm seeing such a plot. If I had to summarise this anime I would say that it's basically lots of unique elements combined together that works. It's currently my second favourite anime this year just behind Made in Abyss.

I'll give this show a 8/10, might change it to 9/10 later. I hope we get a season 2 but seeing how this is a monthly manga and it seems the first season adapted like 32 chapters and there's currently 62 chapters I doubt we'll get a s2 for at least 1.5-2 years unless the manga ends.

this episode seems to have the most deviation from the manga out of the others, and it seems like they're saving Ghost for future season 2 which might end in


edit: saw Heliodor on credits, but where exactly they are in the anime? flashback?

...Seriously? Have you actually looked at a seasonal chart recently? Or is this the first anime you've liked that wasn't made by Madhouse?

It's pretty well known that most animes are made just to boost manga sales and are one offs. Far more shows never continue beyond the first season—or at best receive a sequel yet never finish covering all of the source material—than receive sequels.

Yes, a decent number of the more recent shows are getting sequels. I think that has more to do with the fact that studios are also not choosing stories unless they have a TON of content to adapt.

Many of my favorite shows from the last two years almost immediately announce they will have a sequel, but have to wait years due to using up too much material in one go. It's an extremely common issue with newer shows.

Aaaaaaahhhhhhh Phos has grown so much, and just from the start of this anime, and... I don't even know how to feel about this really, I had so much fun with this anime, I love the characters, I love the art style even though it's CG, I love the world and want to learn more, and to think I almost skipped this one because it didn't seem all that interesting at first glance. It was so good to me, and I'm seriously gonna miss this, was one of the hardest ones to wait every week for.

I'm giving this a solid 10/10, for me, this anime is truly one of a kind, and is going to remain in a special place in my heart for years to come. It's one I will definitely re-watch in the future, and I pray that a new season will come one day.

Who would have guessed that turning Bejeweled into an anime would be such a good idea.

This show is a living proof that there can be a high quality anime made with 3DCG. Plus, almost everything else was top notch as well. The plot, the characters, the setting, the overall theme, the pacing, and etc...

This show definitely deserves a second season. An absolute 10 out of 10 from me.
To be or not to be... that is not the question. ;3

So this entire show was established by the built up of adding more and more questions only to end with exactly zero answers. Honestly, fuck this show now. I was going to give it a decent 6 or 7/10 but now it's no better than 4/10.

How, my dude? Do you think they had room to cram another 30+ chapters of an ongoing manga in there somehow? Welcome to anime adaptions of ongoing works. Maybe they'll get a season two to adapt the rest.

There's literally zero ways to end it satisfyingly without heavily butchering the source and cutting important plotpoints. Orange at least did a decent job of ending it by cutting Chapter 32-35, ending it on 36 and adding some original material to it, and it was great of them to not cut anything in the past episodes and made a faithful adaptation of the manga. This manga is written in such a way that every details have been planned and foreshadowed from the start, and cutting one thing will lead to the cutting of multiple other parts.
In short, either read the manga or buy the BDs if you want a conclusive end. Even if we get a second season I doubt we would get a conclusive ending, since now at Chapter 63 the mysteries are still building up with an end barely in sight.

dude if you are so eager to know the continuation read the manga, its obvious that the anime is only in the beginining (its first season) you are not the only one who wants more but you gottta wait for inevitable 2nd season. I think pretty much everyone realizes that that's why everyone giving it a 9 or 10

I have to say, this show is indeed the 'gem' of this season. Glad I bookmarked the show initially & decided to stick to the very end.

This has to be one of the best CGI anime I've seen in recent memories. Hope there's a sequel someday!

The second best show of the season but the best non sequel (3-gatsu too good). CGI was the best I've seen, just too bad the framerate was so poor. Had to watch at faster speed for it to not feel bad. At least 8/10.

Unfortunate ending since it is considerably worse than the amazing stuff they put out in the first 11. Still enjoyed it, but the ending leaves a lot to be desired. It feels more like an interim episode or an episode that's like halfway through the season rather than a conclusion (though they sort of concluded in the final 3 minutes). Hopefully they will announce a second season.
