A fantastic fantasy of slice of life. Animation is top notch, the music fitting and doesn't over power the drama. Characters that are refreshing change of pace in an hectic anime season. A good show to sit and unwind.


This was a fun little slice of life type of show, with some supernatural elements. The pace is very slow, but it did help to give some sense of community to the village. The show is fairly well animated, with some interesting ideas to it (like giants, ghosts, nekomata, etc). All in all, it is an interesting start. It's not to my usual taste, but I might give this one the 3 episode treatment and see how things go.


Hmm -- modern village slice-of-life with youkai. Not a really compelling pilot, but I do like the setting much better than high school.


It is always nice to see a modern anime with a different art style. The warm color palette, music and detailed natural landscapes are very much reminiscent of Yuru camp and other cozy shows. The writing seems to be focusing on creating believable characters, these are then put into interesting situations by the introduction of supernatural elements (Or by making a part of their identity a supernatural element on itself!) Seems like a good casual watch for the season!
