I never would have heard about Karuta if it wasn't for this anime. So I definitely learned something new!!!

Story wise, I feel like it was almost the opposite of competitive style animes. The main character seemed a little more 'human' than I was used to in the sense that she made mistakes and had struggles she needed to overcome. I feel like all of the main characters that you see in the show have a fantastic character development. Hard work definitely pays off!!

The art and sound in this anime were pretty great!!! The art style is one of my favorites when it comes to read more

I finally got around to watching this anime and quite honestly I am glad that I did, despite the confusion between this anime and Full Metal Alchemist.

I frequently find myself in a 'funk'. The kind where I set myself in a panic when I think about things such as death. I feel like after watching this, I am a bit more at peace about the topic of death.

There are many lessons to be learned from this anime that I think many people need to take the time to learn. The main one would be the consequences the come from revenge/hate.

The story read more

I have been in a funk lately...in times like these, I really need a good cry. To let all my emotions flow out. Thankfully, I found this touching anime.

The story was well written in my opinion. You get to see the different sides of regret and pain. You learn how coming together to solve problems is more beneficial than dealing with something alone.

The artwork was beautiful.

The sound was fine good.

The characters were different, which is good. You get to see different reactions to a situation.

I enjoy this anime a lot. It touched my heart.

I highly recommend to anyone who feels like they read more

For a 4 episode anime this was great!

The story brings me back to the games. I like that there can be so many different versions and stories for the anime because there are so many options to choose from in the game itself. Anyone who has played Pokemon has that special pokemon they could depend on. This portrays the same feelings but wrapped up quickly. It was also nice to have it go straight to the point basically.

The art was great! The sound was stellar as well. I love that they included similar designs to the games and older anime. Nostalgic.

It was cool read more

*Just because I rated this a 6 does not mean this anime is not worth watching*

"The faith in the promise we made, gave him the strength to move on."

This story is pretty basic. I do not feel like there is too much to it. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

The art is nice. I just personally am not a fan of different graphics used together in one anime. So you Kind of get the typical cartoony look but then you have the yokai which will be more computerized at times.

The sound was basic. Nothing out of the ordinary in my opinion.

I can't get enough of my Ghibli films. Spirited Away has to be my favorite one of all time as well. Either Spirited Away or Kiki's Delivery Service was my intro to the whimsical world of Ghibli.

Spirited Away has a good story line. Full of adventure and character development.

The art is typical Ghibli. So basically Amazing.

The sound is great as well. The Piano is especially beautiful.

The characters are creative. Lot's of uniqueness. You see character development in the main character Chijiro which is always fun to watch.

I enjoy this film so much. In my heart, I know that this will always be read more

Well written story that touches your heart.

Look into both sides of the bullying world. As well as what it is like to have depression/anxiety. This story touches so many negative situations in the world. Truly Powerful.

The Art and Sound is phenomenal.

Character design is great.

I enjoy all of the emotions I get from this anime. I think it is an important thing for people to watch to see the different types of struggles some may go through. To better understand each other.

I highly recommend this movie. It shows that you can never take something back but it does not mean you can't try read more

"The Wallflower"

I think this anime is best described as 'a hidden gem'.
There really isn't anything too spectacular about this anime. I still think it is worth watching.

The story line is kind of plain. Yet humor is still prominent in it.

The art is obviously an older style but modern for the time it was made.

The sound is fine.

Characters are 'unique'.

I enjoyed this anime a lot and feel like the message portrayed is to not pretend to be something you are not. You can be beautiful in your own way as long as you stay true to you. Sometimes you need to be reminded read more

Fruits Basket has to be one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES. I can't tell you how happy I am that my friend recommended it to me. I was wary because the name didn't sound too appealing but as you watch it will make a bit more sense.

I think the story is well written. It has humor, happiness, sadness, loneliness, and togetherness all in one.

I think the style is definitely great for it's time. The characters are way too cute. I love the designs.

The sound is good. Nothing too spectacular. It fits for the story itself.

I think the characters were well rounded. read more

Preliminary
In my honest opinion I believe people are being way too harsh in rating this anime. It also isn't fair to compare it to other anime. (Side Note: it gets better the longer you watch in my opinion)

It has a similar story base to anime like Naruto. HOWEVER it has a COMPLETELY different take on it. I believe that is necessary to this particular type of anime to have a good story. Have a character who struggles and a rival. See what limits they can surpass.

I like the magic concept. And I like the time frame it is taking place in.

The art is read more
