Hope there is a season 2.
21 March 2018 | by cake_williamsonSee all my reviews

I didn't expect too much from this, as I haven't been a fan of any Netflix original animes so far. However this one surprised me. The characters are likable (especially the main character), the world was unique and full of mystery, the artwork is gorgeous, and the soundtrack is both beautiful and, at times, haunting. I meant to watch 20 minutes before bed and ended up watching two hours.

The only criticism I have with this anime is that every once in a while a scene would reach beyond the realm of magical to where I was having a "...what did I just watch..." moment.

Overall, you should watch this. Go watch it.
