It's raw and magical at the same time. I would say that it is a breath of fresh air among epic fantasy, Sci-Fi, hyperrealism and other subgenres popular nowdays. It is a beautiful coming-of-age story. Young actors are shockingly good in their roles. I have seen only three episodes, but I hope it will only get better with time.
