Yanagi Yukito is an orphan who one day encounters an eccentric disciple of his father's. The strange man takes him to his birthplace on Ayakashima, made up of seven islands where mysterious beings called "Mitama" and dragons are rumored to reside. There, Yukito meets his father's two other disciples, who protect the harmony of Ayakashima... which soon threatens to collapse.

Hi! This is my first time reviewing an anime so I will explain how I watch and rate things.

there are a few criteria that I look for, most importantly the animation quality, the story, and the characters. What is less of a priority for me is the concept of the anime and the music.

now onto the review:

animation: 5. The animation is alright. nothing really bad (ahem ahem... nanatsu no taizai), but also nothing to write home about. What is missing is dynamics and fluidity in the climaxes of the episodes. It feels static.

Story: 6. I think that the story line is pretty fluent. ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/12 eps)
(Only on ep 3) Well this anime makes me believe it's inspired by Avatar and Naruto although it has its own uniqueness to it. I'm sorry but as of rn I don't have any emotions towards any characters and main character is giving me no once of attachment although this anime is decent 👌 I wouldn't recommend this too someone who starts off watching anime maybe after there 40th anime then watch this. It does seem like it can get better as it's only ep 3 so don't go off what I say see for yourself!

I've been waiting to write a review since the first episode came out. I just couldn't wait to tell you how much I hated this piece of garbage. boring art, more boring characters, typical plot about a nobody who finds out he was secretly awesome all along. There's nothing new here except maybe the level of awfulness.

Honestly, if you watched this and thought "hmm, this is acceptable level of quality", please tell how bad a show has to be for you to drop it.

• Totally unoriginal premise you've seen a million times before
• The art totally fits the story as both are extremely boring
