Grimoire of Zero

In Liturgical Year 526, sorcery has spread throughout the land, but few are aware of a rival practice called "magic." One day, a half-man, half-beast mercenary who has found himself on the run encounters a beautiful witch known only as “Zero.” Zero makes him an offer: if he escorts her on the search for her stolen grimoire, she will help him gain a human form. Despite his hatred for witches, the nameless mercenary accompanies Zero and guards her as she sets out to reclaim a book that has the power to destroy the world.

I am very fond of it. Greatness isn't about being the best, I enjoyed its spirit so much that I watched it twice in a row. He's like a fluffier version of Berserk (the opening pose is similar to the 90s version), she's small but tough like Toradora, but he's the tiger. They have a sweet tsundere journey between frienemies. It's a beautiful world, I care about the characters. It'd deep about issues like discrimination, condemning a whole group for the wrongdoings of a few, good people can do bad things, bad people can do good things, and best of all: hatred and the desire to kill can literally turn against us... like a double edge sword. I don't mind watching a slice of life. I would have been fine if they just got closer slowly on an endless quest... but the plot twist impressed me. Even the sex jokes made me laugh. I'm usually disgusted because anime often degrade women and trivializes sexual assault (grabbing someone's boobs and giggling them without consent isn't just disrespectful, it's a crime). But this anime showed in a funny way how wrong and gross it is to obsess over someone sexually. The best way to be close to someone is to see them as your equal, not as an object to abuse or worship, not to force them by making them lose their free will to have power over them... To truly welcome and connect with who they are in spite of your fears and differences... It's a very wonderful anime. I read other reviews and people can be too critical. Analyzing the technicalities of the art coldly can make you forget to feel its spirit with your heart. The voice actors did a great job. I can't remember the music but that's because it fits well with the atmosphere as a whole. I gave it a 4 but then a 4.5 because, maybe others animes can be better in every way, but this one made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. And that deserves extra points. Enjoy~
