Over the Garden Wall is one of the most interesting Cartoons That I’ve came across. Its a cartoon network animations but it gave me that Ghibli feel story wise. I loved the animation. The show is very well animated, it blew me away. The story is kinda dark and mysterious. Eventhough the objective seems to be straightforward and the story is supposedly straightforward you’ll realized that its quite deep and not at all what meets the eye.

I really liked the list of voice actors and the music in the animation. I was a bit sad that it was only one season however there can’t be another season the way the story has ended. Its defiantly worth watching. If you haven’t watched it yet you should.

Overall Rate: 10/10
