Description
From Viz:
Chakuro is the archivist for the Mud Whale, diligently chronicling the lives and deaths of his people. As one of the short-lived thymia wielders, he knows his time is limited and is determined to leave a better record than his predecessors. But the steady pace of their isolated existence on the Mud Whale is abruptly shattered when a scouting party discovers a mysterious young girl who seems to know more about their home than they do.

I Love the Anime of This

And I love its world building.

It's a unique version of the fairly common setting of people exiled in a closed-off society. It has one and only one magic power, which keeps the heroes from seeming overpowered. It has lots of cute kids and likeable young folks, plus some questionable rulers. It has very much the kind of set of moral rules you would expect of a society in which much of the population is made up of young people with the aforesaid magic power.

It's drawing is lovely, and thank God the airy shoujo style of the manga is diminished in the anime, because I generally hate that style wherever it appears because it's hard to "read" visually and detracts from the illusion of reality of the world depicted. I've encountered that problem with the manga version of this as well.

Conflict within the society, when it comes, takes a form to be expected given the people's training and circumstances, and I am now in great suspense as to whether these lovely folks will come out OK.

I hope that by the time the anime is well along I'll be familiar enough with the world depicted to get over the somewhat visually-confusing drawing in the manga.

A bit of a headscratcher

The narrative is very setting and lore heavy for a female publication. I have more questions then opinions at this point but i liked what i read in the first volume. The protagonist needs to develop more complexity though.
The later volumes though didn´t manage to build on this promising foundation and i had to stop. It´s ultimately impossible to care about a story if the characters within can´t seem to either.
