Junketsu no Maria
Awwww yeah! I was waiting for this. Well, this and the new Tokyo Ghoul and many, many other titles this season. I read up on this one and I was simply attracted to the story. I sounded so funny and interesting that I just had to see it.
So now I have seen the first episode and I can safely say that my expectations were met. It looks great. The characters look superb, it is very detailed and although it’s pretty ecchi, they haven’t overdone it. It is really, really good.
The story? Very interesting! I already knew, because this show is so ecchi, that this is going to be another one of those underrated gems. I am okay with that. Anime about witches have been very good lately. This is definitely one of them.
I honestly do recommend this. I found it funny and very interesting. It truly is a promising show. I am already thinking about writing about Junketsu no Maria; it’s just that good! I advise you to at least try the first episode.
