This one speaks for itself. Well, it doesn’t. Some people aren’t into monster movies, ayakashi, yokai, etc, so probably would like to know more.
The art in the anime follows the same style in the manga. The color though. Talk color here. It is fantastic. The manga really needs color. The heavy lines and geometric shaping is very style specific to this series and it just sings when color is added.
The characters come off like most shonen anime. So, the seller is the graphics. Think Naruto, Black Clover, Haikyuu without the annoying screaming as a main character. More like the main character from Is it Wrong to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon.
The movie after the anime was apparently one of the highest grossing anime released in theater in Japan ever. That should probably tell you how popular it is.
I enjoyed it. I’ll probably rewatch it again in a few years. It isn’t my personal most favorite could watch it again next week anime, but it’s in the “yeah, it’s good enough to watch again.”
If you can’t handle spiders though…might rethink going to deep into the series.
