Ayashi no Ceres is a anime drama show. The show does have some fans, but it seems to not be as popular as it deserves to be. This review is about why this obscure classic is worth checking out.

The Plot

The show is about a teenager named Aya who discovers that a magical woman named Aya is a part of Aya. Both Aya and Ceres want to move on to peaceful lives and they do get some help from 2 young guys named Toya and Yuuhi. However Aki (Aya's brother) has a dangerous person inside of him and Kagami (Aya's cousin) is willing to put Aya and Ceres' lives in danger for his master plan.

Ayashi no Ceres has a very interesting and unique plot. This is 1 of the most well written anime shows that I've ever seen. It has lots of impactful and well done emotional scenes. The show is exciting, emotional, realistic, and amazingly written. All of the show's main characters have well written storylines, especially Kagami. The show is too depressing at times, but that doesn't ruin the show's impressive writing.

The Characters

The show has a strong cast of characters. Ceres is a very mysterious and cool character who adds a lot to the show. Toya is quite cool and Yuuhi is very funny. My favorite character is Kagami. Despite Kagami being the show's main villain he's very sympathetic. His goals are oddly admirable and I ended up feeling more sorry for him than the heroes. Kagami is 1 of the most well written villains of all time.

The Animation

The show's animation is good. It's very pretty and visually well done. The characters look very cool. It has some impressive animation and looks great.


Ayashi no Ceres is a well written drama that has impactful storylines and good characters. It deserves more fans.
