Wonder Egg Priority is the one that stands out among other series this season with its strange but alluring art directions. The anime didn’t hesitate to reveal its strange plot and premise framed between the fantasy and reality of the youth struggles. The anime does get dark, with some bloody violence, but balances with some light-hearted moments to keep it from being too serious or weird.
Synopsis: One night, while taking a walk, Ai Ohto finds a dead firefly and gives it a burial. Suddenly, the dead firefly revives and gives an egg from a gacha machine as a free trial to her. Ai is then told that it is key to reviving her dead friend, Koito Nagase. After realizing what these eggs can do, Ai decides to use as many of the eggs as she can to get her friend back.
The almost real-like use of animation and over-the-top storytelling in a psychological realm makes the series unique and memorable to any viewer. Coming from studio CloverWorks, it is hard not to expect something that would be worthwhile viewing. If you are looking for more anime with a similar theme, then look no further.
