Kemurikusa Introduction and Story

Kemurikusa takes place in a post apocalyptic world where humans have died off. Rin, Ritsu, and Rina are a trio of red-haired sisters that find themselves trapped in this world. The sisters are on a journey to explore the world and find a way to save the world. Along the way, the girls are forced to fight against monsters they call bugs that appear along with the Red Fog.

Why You Should Watch Kemurikusa

1. The Story

Kemurikusa has a deep and complex story that you can invest yourself into. As the series progresses, you get more and more information on the mysteries of the world and you really start to see how well thought out and executed the story is. Although this also means that it takes a while for the anime to get going, if you are willing to stick through the beginning you are in for a treat.

2. The World and Characters

Kemurikusa has a world that perfectly matches the tone of the story. The apocalyptic world is has a great visual style with some dark and eerie backgrounds. Every aspect of the world is set up so we really get the most of learning about the mysteries of the world alongside the girls. The characters are also great with Rin, Rina, Ritsu, and Wakaba all getting a decent amount of development and they all have an important role to play in the story.

Why You Should Skip Kemurikusa

1. The Visuals

The first thing you will notice about Kemurikusa is the show’s visuals. While the backgrounds look pretty good, the cg models are not the best looking thing around. The whole style makes the movement in the anime awkward and the characters always feel stiff.

2. Open Ended Story

After you've finished the series, there will still be plenty of things that were left unexplained. Even after the many revelations that come from episode eleven, you are still left in the dark on a few of the anime's issues. The ending also leaves a lot to be desired with an ending that only leaves more questions than answers. Although some people may enjoy the openness of the story, if you like finite clear resolutions, the ending may leave a sour taste in your mouth.

3. Slow Story

The slow approach to the development of the story is one of Kemurikusa's biggest strengths and weaknesses. It takes a few episodes for the story to really take off and for you to start to get a grasp of the bigger picture. If you aren't wanting to sit through a couple of episodes of world building, there may not be much to keep you interested in the series.

Final Thoughts

That is it for our review of Kemurkiusa. The anime was truly one of the more interesting and unique anime of the season. What do you think of Kemurikusa? Do you think it is worth watching? Let us know by leaving us a comment.
