The latest from Kyoto Animation seems to be a battle anime. As usual, the character designs are high quality.

This time the heroine is a little crazy from the main character’s point of view, so it will be interesting to see the public reaction. The main character will most likely help the story progress by accepting her craziness, but if I were in his shoes I would probably find her the unpleasant one and defeat her…

The Kyoto Animation anime for this season is as high quality as ever!

They start out with the “At any rate, someone who looks as good in glasses as you to…” seen in commercials and suddenly go to a stabbing! The OP and ED sequences have high quality animation as well! The main character is a half-Youmu who has an immortal body, and the heroine is a bespectacled highschool girl with blood-manipulating powers who likes to say “how unpleasant.” The combination of a serious plot and KyoAni’s gag style leads to an anime with a powerful impact. If I were to sum the anime up in a few words, it’s about Spirit World Warriors fighting Youmu!

A fantasy anime with some slice-of-life added, I think. Can you call getting stabbed “this was how I met Mirai”? I suppose he is immortal. When monsters started appearing the passer-byes didn’t seem to notice, but I guess only those with skill can see them? Does being Half-Youmu count? I still don’t know the importance of the girl without glasses, so I’m looking forward to the next episode. She will most likely have some sort of feelings for the main character, but I like that she doesn’t try to wear glasses and court favor.

He got stabbed! There was something similar in ‘Love, Chunibyo & other delusions,’ but isn’t this the first fantasy battle anime from Kyoto Animation? There is a lot of movement with pretty pictures. I’m personally a bit disappointed because it seems like there will be a really good, deep setting but the story will only scratch the surface. The character visuals have the Kyoto Animation look, but it might not be the best fit for this kind of story. There wasn’t as much excitement for this being the fist episode either. But, with the animation quality the battles should be exciting. If you are recording, don’t mistake the title for ‘The Garden of Sinners’! (Kara no Kyoukai)

From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”
