Shikabane Hime Review

Hey guys! its been a while since I made an anime review, so lets continue with Shikabane Hime.  This anime has two seasons that are out. First season is called Aka and the second is Kuro.  Produced by Feel and Gainax (Gainax is the producer of Neon Genesis Evangelion).

After being murdered, Makina Hoshimura turns into a “living corpse”. Armed with dual submachine guns, she must kill 108 other corpses in order to gain entry into heaven. She is assisted in this task by Keisei Tagami, a Buddhist priest with links to an anti-corpse group known as the Kougun Cult.

This anime has a good story behind it and a good plot, in my opinion, one of the things that makes an anime great is a good ending which unfortunately this anime didn’t have.  Some anime critics “”online”” says Gainax makes the wierdest and/or a really bad ending, I can’t get to the conclusion that they are right but so far Gainax is letting me down on endings hehe . But overall, the characters are great, story is great, and the monsters are awsome.

I will give this anime a 7/10

Don”t thake my word for it, watch this anime and tell me what do you think
