While her brother is defeated, Fěi, who possesses the sword's crossguard, manages to escape off a cliff.


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.

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.

weezamon : 1:14 half life crowbar hitting metal

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

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

MrVince329 : Gen Urobuchi and Hiroyuki Sawano everyone :D

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

nichols4520 : it took Japanese to want the rights to air to finally add English subtitles for all to understand. Thank you. been following for 7 years without being able to follow the stories, until now.

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

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

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

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

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!

UltimateBattleRap : I need this

funkeymanx : That was amazing!

Kate Roy : It's like Thunderbirds, but fucking extra. I must admit: at first the puppets crossed with anime-style editing seemed a little jarring, but I'm genuinely curious to see what happens next.

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?

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

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

CWL121412 : This is Kamen Rider-like budget effects, meaning it's really good

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

hgwells 1899 : 😮 👏 Michael Bentine's Potty Time was never like this!

YTDekus : Holy Crap wow!!!

gamehead91 : wow, this is dope.

MrNone92 : Amazing !!#

Monado6 : remind me of robot chicken

Jonathan Tsang : brought me here

Npstyle : holy shit they put a lot of work into this, it looks awesome!

Lou Yue : the soundtrack is amazing!

Nana Almani : Man I would recognize Hiroyuki Sawano's music anywhere.

Christopher Adi Pascual : 4:15 I saw it coming brother would get hit and say it uwaah!!! Too much anime

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!

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..

Ken Kusanagi : Really well done.

chaoschief : dam, this is actually really good

hashknight1 : amazing...salute the creators of this show

GURGLEGUY12345 : 3:38 Wasn't that sound effect used in SMTIV?
