There is a world behind the world. And it is full of darkness and pain and evil.
Without a doubt, Gifune is one of the best in the business. His characterizations are spot on and his stories always have a palpable sense of darkness to them. With that said, there is a lot going on in Orphans of Wonderland, possibly…too much. It came together in the end, but still felt like there was a lot of story crammed into a tight format. (Maybe I just wish it was a bit longer.) With anyone else, this could have been a train wreck, but Gifune pulls it off with solid characters and brooding atmosphere. You simply can’t go wrong with Gifune. 4 Stars.
