OK! Except I asked that while I was watching the first episode…….So, I heard much about this title back when it was an 3-episode OVA back in 2016 and there was some buzz around it and hey, it’s a Studio WIT title and….OK, as much as I bagged on them, I did said I liked Kabaneri and I hope this should at least be interesting.

Plot Summary: Chise Hatori has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the same again.
First Thoughts: So this girl’s life is all fucked up and reading from the Wiki synopsis….damn, fuck your relatives, girl. So she gets sold to this beast-man and she’s actually living better there and…oh, she happens to be a Sleigh Beggy, someone who can draw magic from her surroundings although using it does lessen her life. OK, shit…..damn, that’s really a downer of a power. But yeah….this was rather good to watch. I mean, I’m not hyped on it like some people are but this is a good one.
CONTINUE on a Medium Priority.
Yeah, that’s it.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and damn, magic is a bitch.
