Juuni Kokuki is a light novel adaptation written by Fuyumi Ono.

Now. This looked like it had potential. Even looking at screenshots, I am wondering whether to give it another shot. We start of in a city where we met  Youko, who is seemingly a normal Japanese high school student. As a note her school still has segregated classes for boys and girls so I’m guessing it set early 90s. Youko gets attacked at school and saved by a strange man who insists she is someone important. Eventually she gets taken/kidnapped from the school and taken to a new world with her friends Yuka and  Ikuya.

Why didn’t I enjoy this? Its got magic, swords and demons. Youko looks like she is a brave person. Except the first few episode is just her going ‘no I don’t want to kill the monster trying to kill me’. Youko is not very strong and causes herself more problems than not. Maybe she grows into the character but she just irritates me. The first few times I’m like ‘fine your scared’ but you would think she would catch on to the whole ‘you are trying to survive’. She doesn’t fight. She just had to keep her eyes open and the spirit in her will fight for her but she closes her eyes!

So stone. Maybe I will go back to it. But unlikely.

One thought on “Juuni Kokuki Review”

  1. I actually loved this Anime. She later on becomes quite a bad ass.

    But everybody has their tastes so maybe its not your thing… and maybe you just need to watch it completely to enjoy.

    My advise… watch the first 13 episodes and decide after that
