Ruz : I admit that I clicked on this just to see how dumb it is as I don't care for anime at all, but holy smokes was I humbled. This is amazing. I love the effects and the story is really intriguing. I can't wait to watch the rest.

Yunpei Yang : Who would've guessed that a Chinese style "wu xia" (fantasy martial artist genre) story, puppetry and anime can make such an amazing combination!?

In The Zone : If I could have choreography like this show, I would settle for more a puppet version of berserk over that CGI crap any day. hell a puppet version of basically any anime with this quality. Toei, give DBS to these guys.

Oda Swifteye : Someone was randomly watching this and it took me several moments to realize that this was being done with puppets. Just imagine Jim Henson seeing something like this. It would blow his fucking mind.

Karsonist : Absolutely gorgeous! Although the language spoken is Japanese, both the hand puppet technique and story are Chinese in origin. It's great that both Japanese and Chinese artistic stylings can come together like this, and that Japan can celebrate another country's culture so sincerely for a change.

weezamon : 1:14 half life crowbar hitting metal

TheHueisOver™ : This is beyond fantastic, the creators should put it on netflix asap.

IamYou86 : This is AWESOME!!! I frigging love this so much. The dolls are all so exquisite and detailed. This was a joy to watch.

Madara Uchiha : I read this was puppetry and thought this was some lame crap. I've never been so wrong in my life. This is art.

Firestorm TH : I can't imagine how long it took to make that

Ellena Crystal : Damn that emo guy(bone man) looks fresher than me waking up from my beauty sleep.

GinHindew110 : The shameles cgi would look lame in an anime or live action but the detail of the marionetes and the normal special efects makes it quite cool, above everything else to know the care anf effort poured into this is what makes it feel that good

Christopher Pineau : For those of you who don't know, all 13 episodes of this amazing, epic series are available with subtitles (this Japanese dub, in fact) on, so those who'd like to check it out in better quality video, pop over there!

MrVince329 : Gen Urobuchi and Hiroyuki Sawano everyone :D

WarpRulez : When somebody thinks that playing with dolls isn't badass, show them this.

Kakashi Hatake : An impressive, among many other things, how flawless the cuts are made. Never feels like cheap production, as a matter of fact, this is really high production, probably the highest.

Jorrellds : This is like Team America.... times 9/11

I Like Butter : "Anime", "Japanese". How many people know that this is actually made by a Taiwanese studio, with Mandarin voice acting in mind, and has Chinese written characters on screen. Not everything is Japan jeez

Bartosz Lechocki : At first I thought that it will be hard to swollow, but just 40 seconds was enought to change my opinion. This series has brought so much joy! I thought that nothing will astonish me that much after my 32 years of life, but this..!?! It's fu..g AMAZING :D

Jiminipple : I admit that it's well done, but still it's weird ;;; I don't like puppets, they're creepy, especially hearing them talk while the mouth is not moving is kinda..

Switchback : Wow, I was not expecting that. The story and characters were portrayed with such seriousness and drama that the dolls didn't do anything to take away from the experience. It might just be the novelty and execution of the medium, but I felt more invested from that 7 minutes than multiple episodes of other anime.

Viewtiful Valentine : yeah this is more impressive than mots anime I've seen...

Dave Ranger : Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn this shit was lit, I don't know what the hell this is but I'm a fan now! LOL

Silas ofNj : I literally don't know what to say to this... Holy shit, I'm speechless...

Hi : Taking playing with dolls to a whole 'nother level.

ebere213 : You can tell the story's by Urbochi with how violent it is lol... Also gosh, never get tired of Gilgamesh's voice...

TUSKACT 4 : This should've won anime of the year

Madame D'Mort : OMFG THIS IS AMAZING !!!!!

TheKenchanx : Big Bad shows up slowly decending from the sky with a poem When he lands, anything within a few feet of him that has life... explodes and dies I'm hooked

Judith Rios : I came expecting to laugh my ass off.......but now I just want more puppets kicking ass!!! Wait, does this count as anime?

Charlie : Insanely dope! I am addicted now! I need more, damn.

UltimateBattleRap : I need this

funkeymanx : That was amazing!

wutangdan : Holy shit this is dope

98kazer : gone is the time of puppets awkwardly fighting, that in reality, looks like they're humping each other and welcome to age of THIS!

SoloSphere Entertainment : Why is everyone calling this anime? lol it's from Taiwan. Just saying...

Space Pilot : Do you add motion blur to the characters? Regardless, it looks amazing which really matters.

Jafar Shodiq : wtf this is surprisingly very good!

Destiny Hero : this is better than i expected. Much much better!

miryone Heartilly : Just like an anime with wuxia elements. I like it.

YTDekus : Holy Crap wow!!!

gamehead91 : wow, this is dope.

MrNone92 : Amazing !!#

M.K. Shiro : Is the music by Sawano Hiroyuki?

Ken Kusanagi : Really well done.

Nusret Bextiyar : Should have used the english translated names for the characters... or else it confuses foreigners a lot since they also have vietnamese names and korean names

Chenggong Lee : Best show I have ever seen. I could literally see this becoming an actual movie

Josh Larry : I don't know how to feel about this. Though if this wasn't puppets this could've been a pretty good anime.

nick smymee : Japan vs china 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

Polarpwnage : it looks like a live action barbie show LOL I was laughing so hard. But after I got over the shock of watching something that reminded me of robot chicken, I realized how amazing and unbelievable it is to film something like this
