Phantoms: supernatural entities such as ghosts or youkai that, until recently, were thought to be superstition. However, when a virus that infects the brain spreads throughout society, people’s perception of the world changes as the mythical beings are revealed to have been living alongside humanity the entire time. This virus has also affected those of the next generation significantly, allowing them to develop special abilities that they can use to fight against dangerous phantoms.

Haruhiko Ichijou and Mai Kawakami are two of those that were granted such power as Haruhiko wields the ability to summon and seal phantoms through drawings while Mai imbues the power of the elements into martial arts. Together, along with the friendly phantom Ruru, they form Team E of Hosea Academy which is dedicated to dealing with these often mischievous beings. In a world where the real and surreal intertwine, Musaigen no Phantom World follows the adventures of a group of friends as they handle the everyday troubles caused by phantoms.

Musaigen no Phantom World AKA Myriad Colors Phantom World is a Kyoto anime. So in terms of animation the anime is great. The character design and character development were amazing. I also loved the anime concept and how the character development was represented. The main character was actually interesting. This is like the second Kyoto anime with an interesting main character, the first would be Hibike! Euphonium. The anime is good.

However, watching the anime I felt like it was missing something. The anime did have fan service. It also had most of the Kyoto element, but I couldn’t help but feel like it was missing something. I’m not sure what it is yet though… other than that the anime was good.

Overall Rate: 7/10
