Happy Monday everyone! Mondays aren’t particularly happy, but maybe this will lift your Monday mood! Okay guys, today I will talk about a new anime I am following called Urara Meirochou. This may not be for the guys, as it is on the cute side of the anime spectrum, unless you’re into that. I’m not one to judge! Now, let’s get into the thick of things!
There’s a town called Meirochou, in which girls starting at age 16 work to become Urara, fortune tellers that specialize in different types of divination. They exist to help people who are lost on their walk through life.
The main character, Chiya, a wild child raised in the woods surrounding the illustrious town turns 16 and makes her way to town to become one of the aspiring Urara there.
Her goal is to become number one out of all Uraras along with her new friends and fellow trainees: Koume, Kon and Nono, as well as ultimately finding and meeting her birth mother. During their training, many mysterious things happen that may change Chiya’s life forever.
The original story was written by mangaka Harikamo and published by Honbunsha through Manga Time Kirara Miracle! magazine. It is still ongoing if you want to check it out.
The anime is licensed by Sentai Filmworks and created by J.C. Staff. It is also still ongoing with one season of 12 episodes. Since the Japanese version has not been completed yet, I would assume that in the future, English dub licensing will most likely be done by FUNimation, as are most non-Jump series anime. I would love to add this to my current DVD collection!
I recommend this for all those who love a good plot and are into adorable characters. It’s fascinating to watch and the artwork is a kaleidoscope of cute! Totally check it out when you get the chance! Until next time!
