Fun Ride to Youkai World

This turned out to be a much better show than my expectations. Its blend of fantasy, mystery, horror, romance and comedy, is well balanced. While the romance aspect is somewhat understated, all the other genres are fleshed out quite effectively. There is also some cool action.

Although E1 was good, it becomes a lot more interesting from E2 and it keeps getting better and better. This one is kinda similar to Enigma (Thai drama) but with the addition of comedy. Moreover the mysteries of the Youkai world are unveiled in an intriguing manner. Thanks to the blend of comedy, mystery, fantasy and action, there isnt a single dull moment throughout, each episode is genuinely engaging. There might be a few flaws in it but what matters is it was engaging af. 35 min X 8Ep format greatly help in keeping you engaged. The episodes are short yet fast paced, leaving no room for boredom.

Furthermore, im glad they didnt turn FL into a good hearted demon/youkai. She was on a mission and she actually killed those guardians, which was a requirement for her to fulfill her mission.

The open ended ending sets the stage for S2, leaving everyone eager to see what unfolds next.

Overall i would rate it around 8.8-9.0/10.

I really need a Season 2 for this!!

Firstly, I'd totally recommend this show if people out there want a soft romance with Fantasy, Action and Comedy elements mixed into it.

The main reason I began the series was the description. As a person who always reads the description first, I have this tendency to drop japanese series without much thought to it, but this time I assure you this series was so much better than what I thought.

As the title of this review says, I think with the limited japanese series I've watched, this one had the best fight scenes. I got hooked up for them from the start.
Then came the comedy. Laughed throughout the show. And the Fantasy, with the whole Youkai, it was a new type of fantasy I'd watched.

Finally, the cute romance. It was so cute that I have a whole list of cute romance shows like this. I loved how Izzy kept protecting Hachi and how Hachi kept on going about how she shouldn't kill anyone anymore. It was cute.
