There are only a couple shows that come out each year where after you finish it you take a deep breath and say “damn that was a great time I wish it wouldn’t end”.
If you are tired of the shonen formula, the high school setting, the demons, and the isekai worlds. I present to you Great Pretender. The show travels all around the world from Japan to US to Singapore to London. The art and animation takes a stab at the different environments and situations with its own creativity and its absolutely stunningly beautiful. WIT studio delivers.
