Arcana Famiglia

I was quite interested in seeing what this anime was all about. I’ve read the Synopsis and I have been interested in this anime ever since. However, I’m a bit confused after seeing the first episode. I’ve got mixed feelings about the whole thing. It’s definitely unique and interesting, but for how long? It seems a bit like Ao no Exorcist on that part, doesn’t it?

The artwork is really good. I love the surroundings and the whole 20’s – 30’s feeling. The artwork definitely draws you in. Still, I can’t help but think that Nova, one of the show’s main characters, looks a whole lot like one of the characters in Ao no Exorcist. I’ll admit that it’s only a small resemblance, but stil…

Anyway, it’s the story that left me bit confused. It’s about a family of people with special powers, all about to fight for one thing; to become the head of the family and take his/her place at Felicita’s side, the daughter of the current family head. It’s a very unique concept, I’ll give them that much.

I’m not even going to go around it; yes. I recommend this anime to all romance lovers that don’t mind a touch of the supernatural genre. I believe that this anime has a lot of promise. It can go any way at this point. There are a lot of different characters, each with their own abilities, so I think it’s safe to say that we can expect a lot of mind-blowing action.

Plot Summary: Things are NOT going well for Felicitá. For years, the island of Regalo, has been protected by her father’s “organization,” the Arcana Tarroco, whose success is due in no small part to the members’ unusual skills with Tarot Cards, not to mention the usual guns and knives. But now, unexpectedly, her father has decided to retire and, while the fact that his position will be filled by the winner of a series of duels doesn’t worry Felicitiá, the fact that he’s decided to throw HER into the contest as part of the prize certainly does! Especially since some of the contestants are her cousins, which is keeping things WAY too much in the family! Fortunately, our lady shark has two aces up her sleeve: as the head of the Swords division, she’s eligible to compete for herself, and with her favored Card, The Lovers, she can snoop into the minds of her would be suitors/rivals! It’s just too bad they have their own card tricks!

    Arcana Famiglia is a recently released anime. On it’s tags says Romance so I would like to know who she ends up with. To those who played the VN or read the manga.

    Is it with Liberte or Nova?

  3. I’ve heard it was some sort of a mix between naruto and hitman reborn. I’ve started watching it and it’s not bad either.
