Somali and the Forest Spirit
Aliases: Somali to Mori no Kamisama Studio: Satelight Adaptation: Web Manga Genres: Adventure, Slice of Life, Fantasy Episodes: ? Release Date: Oct 25, 2019 to ? Streaming:Crunchyroll,
Plot: The world is ruled by a diversity of inhuman beings, who persecuted humans and drove them to near-extinction. One day, the forest guardian Golem meets a human girl. This is a chronicle of a journey that would bind a member of the dying "human" clan to the forest guardian Golem, as father and daughter.
So far, the only title I'm planning to give a shot this season given its unique premise with humanity on the brink of extinction and a golem tending to one of the surviving ones remaining. But still early into the start of the Winter season, so waiting to see what else it has to offer.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
The series does a good job of putting together happy moments and then dangerous moments. You cannot be complacent as there is no such safe place in this world for Somali and humans. You can only have peace of mind with people Somali and Golem had befriended.
The series explores racism and prejudice, and it's not pretty with monsters killing, eating, and selling humans while humans killing monsters.
