A girl, a maid and a giant cat save the world.
It’s shows like this that make me keep watching anime. I had high expectations with Mizukami behind this, and damn he did not disappoint. Planet With stuffed more into one season than most shows could fit into four.
Thematically this show was just spectacular. Most shows are satisfied to regurgitate the same tired tropes and platitudes that anime has been spitting out for decades. Planet With doesn’t. It has some very thoughtful ideas, breaks your expectations, and makes you actually think. I will also confess that I was a puddle of tears by the end. (but not in a sad way, in a beautiful way)
I can’t recommend this enough. Also, read Spirit Circle.
