Storyline

Chise is a small, shy and clumsy high school student who managed to work up the courage to ask Shuji, a tall, confident and athletic boy in her class, to be her boyfriend. The two make a cute couple, but their lives as they know them are thrown into disarray when war begins to tear Japan apart. Even more horrifying, Chise is taken by an unknown group, and her body is transformed into the military's ultimate weapon. With the knowledge of what his girlfriend has become, Shuji struggles to hold onto the Chise he loves, even as the military uses her for their battles and the rest of his friends are also pulled into the growing conflict. Meanwhile, Chise struggles to hold onto her humanity, fearful that herself as a weapon may one day overwhelm and destroy herself as a human. Written by Annonymous

Sad and moving series
2 February 2005 | by scarlet478See all my reviews

SaiKano is a sad, sad series. And yet somehow uplifting by the end. The message of the series really sticks with you afterwards- it's that moving.

I love the characters the most- they're all so admirable in their own ways, and they each make their own sacrifices for the sake of someone special to them. That's what it's about; loving and trying to receive love, getting hurt in a confusing and quickly changing world but still struggling to go on despite these difficulties. I'll never forget a moment near the end that made me realize that the series started off in a vastly different world. It really brings home the irreversible effects of war, and the changes that the main characters have experienced.

This series is a good mix of pathos and cute moments (mostly courtesy of Chise) not to be missed. I haven't read the manga, but as a series alone, it is quite excellent.
