This anime is a visually stunning piece of art.
In a short ten minute jaunt it tells the story of a young girl who entrusts the safety of herself and her village to an anti-hero for a price . . . It rapidly sucks you into a world reminiscent of a water color painting awash with black, yet still manages to at times be so lighthearted.
Helping this story along is the ever beautiful and haunting "Ave Maria" by Schubert which made it feel all the more ethereal.
To me it raised the questions:
What would you do/give to save your family and your home?Would you be willing to kill?
What would you sacrifice to gain back a piece of yourself long lost?
