07-Ghost


07-Ghost (セブンゴースト) is a fantasy manga written and illustrated by Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara. It is set in a fantasy world with different laws, kingdoms, gods and magic. The series has been adapted into a drama CD and an anime television series from Studio Deen, which debuted in April 2009. 07-Ghost won a double-first prize in the third Zero-Sum Comics Grand-Prix, meaning it was chosen for first place by both readers and editors, which is very rare.

The best way to define the story is “not bad”. It’s a fairly interesting story about friendship and vengeance, and had it’s fair share of comedy and touchy moments which are the kind of things I personally like in an anime. Even though I watched the show from the first day of broadcast (which I mentioned before was roughly six months ago) it didn’t seem like that long ago that I started. I believe the sole reason to be the fact that 95% of the story took place in one geographical area. I wouldn’t say this is good or bad, but definitely interesting.

State of the art animation, taken to it’s full potential. The most notable example would be right when the opening credits start after the preview where there’s a beautiful aerial shot of the church with a glaring sun in the background. Absolutely breathtaking. I speak mostly for the music. Great songs for the OP/ED credits. What gives this category an 11 is the amazing orchestral background music throughout the anime and the beautiful insert in the end. The sound fx were great, very fitting with all the magic and the like going on.
