Anime Review: Phantom in the Twilight (3.5 stars)
Genre: Action, Supernatural, paranormal, Reverse Harem (?)
Number of episodes: 12 (Completed)
Rating: 3.5 stars
Ton is moving to London to study abroad but ends up getting robbed by a phantom. Ton chases the phantom into Café Forbidden and meets a group of guys telling her that she is the descendant of a famous Umbra hunter.
Shadowhunters + Neo angelique abyss vibes.
Okay, I would like to ask her how can she not react after coming face to face with Vlad’s ripped body?😂 We meet Vlad, Toryu, Wayne and Luke we are are Umbra (aka paranormal creatures), born of human fear and anxiety.
I definitely was shipping Shinyao and Chris (am I the only one?) and Ton and Vlad.
Music is dark and dramatic. And I found this anime pretty funny. I like the progression and how the stakes were raised frequently. Although I’m still not sure whether it counts as reverse harem, I personally don’t think so because there isn’t much romance besides flirting.
I like that Ton isn’t like a weak protagonist, she doesn’t run from the fight and keeps trying. I actually did like the characters and story, but there wasn’t much of a character arc because the way the heroine was established was already pretty strong. Would I watch a season 2 if there were? Yes, but it’s not one of the very good or memorable anime.
