Wonderful Story
26 June 2010 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

An ordinary boy who enters fantasy world by circumstance to get the chance of reviving his family back to normal but encounters a lot of troubles along the way, meet new friends, chance to change destiny.

The travel and view is good but something tells me I want more. The background audio is nearly perfect, in timing and class.

Story about friendship, bravery, trust, and greed. Maybe related to HunterXHunter but that anime has too much action and brutality compared to this.

All in all you can't imagine how a little boy risks all his life for a dream family he wanted. Very good and well thought.

9/10 for me... For family and all genre.
