Storyline

The protagonist, Masaru, has just inherited a big fortune after the death of his father. However, people are trying to get their hands on it by any means necessary, even if it means killing him. Narumi helps Masaru from being kidnapped after fighting strange figures. He finds out that they're not humans, but wooden puppets with amazing strength. After a hard fight, Narumi is forced to admit that he's no opponent for them; and just when he starts to think that Masaru will be captured, Shirogane, Masaru's watcher arrives from France with a weapon, the puppet Arlequin. Here begins the story of Karakuri Circus.

Very creative show
25 December 2018 | by shammyshamnineSee all my reviews

Want an anime that's action packed and a well executed storyline? Then look no further than karakuri circus. I've been watching this anime for about a week now and it has me hooked. The puppets are very creative and some are quite spooky (of you don't like dolls), just of Annabelle in an action movie. It's been a lie since I've watched a good anime and I watch them by the bucket load. When overlord and my hero academy ended their 3rd season I was looking for a replacement to tide me over until their return.. and boy does this one deliver. I hope this gets more viewers because its one great anime.
