Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou First Impressions

The next BIG magical series?

Expectations: Low

Verdict: Decent

Summary: Akari has a fortune-telling job, which people around her are worried about. Her dead mother passed this on to her. After she had a chance encounter with Seira, accidents kept happening around her. She later has a dream of Envious and a vision of a girl with fire hair. She gets attacked by a strange fire creature, which in turns unlocks her power.

Thoughts: This anime is starting to be compared to Madoka already. It’s not quite there yet but I’m glad I’m not getting Black Rock Shooter vibes. I’m not fond of the character designs but the angles of the supernatural power were nicely done. The story is still rather bland but it’s got a good cliffhanger that they can work on with. I think the blandness has got to do with the OST. The music is pretty decent. How I wished they played it in other key moments. For now, it has immense potential worth looking forward to.

Genei 2

Initial Rating: 7.5/10
