A Hidden Gem
19 January 2020 | by LexikaSee all my reviews

While most probably have never heard of this series, it is a hidden gem in the world of anime. Complete with a rich, satisfying plot filled with twists, eye-catching animation, and delightful characters, this anime will make you laugh and cry. In addition, the English dub is very good and highly recommended. A must-see for any anime fan.
