Yoshino Takigawa, an ordinary teenager, is secretly dating his best friend Mahiro's younger sister. But when his girlfriend Aika mysteriously dies, Mahiro disappears, vowing to find the one responsible and make them pay for murdering his beloved sister. Yoshino continues his life as usual and has not heard from Mahiro in a month—until he is confronted by a strange girl who holds him at gunpoint, and his best friend arrives in the nick of time to save him. Yoshino learns that Mahiro has enlisted the help of a witch named Hakaze Kusaribe to find Aika's killer and of the existence of an entity known as the "Tree of Exodus." The witch's brother selfishly desires to make use of its power, in spite of the impending peril to the world. However, Hakaze is banished to a deserted island, and it is now up to Yoshino and Mahiro to help her save the world, while inching ever closer to the truth behind Aika's death.

Weirdly endearing action show that turns into a romantic comedy halfway through. The best character is dead from the first episode


A series that any Shakespearian fan will love with it’s references to the Tempest and Hamlet


I thought this was a rather interesting story. There were many plot twists that just went OMG

First half was really good and interesting. It’s such a shame that the second half boils down to a 1-dimensional shitty drama.


It’s been a while but this is decently good. It’s edgy and tries to be deep but it’s still entertaining. I love the Shakespearean allusions.


Охрененный опенинг, интересный сюжет, который к сожалению скатывается к середине аниме

Beautiful loose adaptation of “The Tempest”. A bit slow in the beginning, but after the second half you won’t want to stop.



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
