Children of the Whales

KBS Kyoto 2017

Chakuro is the 14-year-old archivist of the Mud Whale, a nigh-utopian island that floats across the surface of an endless sea of sand. Nine in ten of the inhabitants of the Mud Whale have been blessed and cursed with the ability to use saimia, special powers that doom them to an early death. Chakuro and his friends have stumbled across other islands, but they have never met, seen, or even heard of a human who wasn't from their own. One day, Chakuro visits an island as large as the Mud Whale and meets a girl who will change his destiny.

    **MY THOUGHTS ON CHILDREN OF THE WHALES:** _**-WARNING: Spoilers Below-**_ Wow... This was magnificent. This is possibly one of the most beautiful Anime's I have ever watched. From the very first episode to the very last I was captivated. The only downfall it has is that they ended it only after 12 episodes when it could have very easily went on for 4+ seasons. I'll never understand why it was ended so early. When you first start this you're given the impression that it'll be some slice of life happy-go-lucky anime that is all positivity and then **BOOM** the reality hits. This isn't some happy anime, it's brutal, sad and painful. My jaw dropped so many times whilst watching this, I even shed a tear at times. It has some of the most intense and beautiful scenes I have witnessed. The concept behind this is beautiful too, the story keeps you watching and immersed and leaves you glued to the screen and waiting for the next episode to come on. The final episode opens up many doors for potential seasons with some potentially beautiful stories to be written. I'd love to know how the characters act when they realise there's more out there than they originally thought. Whenever people ask for Anime recommendations I always recommend this one. It'll always hold this very close to my heart and remember it as the beautiful anime with a phenomenal story. I really wish it lasted longer than 12 episodes but hopefully one day someone will renew it and bless up with another season - one can only hope. **Overall rating: 9/10**

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
