This anime did not take long to establish who are main character is, what they are destined to do and the sprit that lives at the shrine. I have to congratulate the writers (so many anime’s fail at this most basic of tasks).
The animation seems to vary, some moments the animation flows smoothly and then there are times the animation just seems to give up. e.g. They attempt to do a quick close-up of Gintaro however, they just randomly stop and jump cut to him (it looks very choppy).
I’m thankful that this show has at least attempted to explain what a Shinto shrine is, they could of easily presumed that the audience would already know what a shrine/what they were used for.
It’s not the best of anime’s but, it’s not the worse show that anime (in general) has to offer.
