If you’re interested in a less well-known fantasy anime, you should really watch The Twelve Kingdoms. It’s one of my favorite series, thought I was bummed to learn that it didn’t get a third season to wrap things up better. I did a spotlight article on the series for The G.A.M.E.S. Blog recently, so check it out and leave some comments. (If you want to, that is. Though comments are always lovely. ;))
This series is actually what introduced me to another of my favorites, a supernatural series called Ghost Hunt. Both Ghost Hunt and The Twelve Kingdoms are based on light novels by Fuyumi Ono. I wish I could read Japanese, because I’d totally import her books in a heartbeat. I’ll probably end up doing a feature on Ghost Hunt as well sometime because I feel like no one really knows about it.
Are there any anime series that fall a little outside the mainstream that you have a soft spot for? (Feel free to leave recommendations here, but it would be extra super awesome if you could share them at The G.A.M.E.S. Blog, too!)
