A great surprise, wonderful story, beautiful atmosphere, greatly recommended.
12 April 2016 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This Anime was much more than what I thought it would be. Despite being short, with only 25 chapters (26 if you include the intro chapter) it manages to tell a very powerful story which delivers a meaningful message in the end. One of the best things about this Anime is the atmosphere, which is one of the things that first attracted me to it. The colors are gorgeous and even though the animation isn't the best I've seen, it's good enough for it to not be bothersome. The music is interesting and intense, and really takes you to the town where everything happens and helps compel the feelings of the characters.

The first three chapters are slow, but do watch it, you wont be disappointed. It almost made me cry in the end, which almost never happens either with Animes or movies, so give it a try. I definitely recommend it for Anime lovers, and lovers of good stories be it sci-fi, post-apocalyptic worlds, fantasy, super powers, old Japanese feel and even love. Definitely one of the best animes I have seen. A great surprise that I will recommend to many friends of mine, and that I recommend to whoever ended up here. You will not regret it.

9/10
