Reviews

   

Kagewani's a definite recommendation for anyone with slightest interest in kaijuu/cryptids/mythical monsters, and it's also worth a few episodes' try for others who wouldn't be scared away by its general format and animation style. - MyAnimeList (Beobachter)

    

Final Verdict: I know Kagewani is meant to be a horror-with-monsters anime, but its hamfisted homages to other (better) horror flicks, the uneven quality between episodes, the stiff animation and its ultimately uninteresting and useless protagonist left me feeling disappointed. While it's not as formulaic as some horror anime, it still feels messy and amateurish. - Anime-Planet (CaptainSlow)
