About Den-noh Coil Collection 1 Blu-ray
In Den-noh Coil, Yuko "Yasako" Okonogi and her little sister Kyoko can't remember a time when they weren't looking at the world through their digitally augmented glasses. After all, e-space, a series of world-wide overlays of images and information, is where their virtual dog Densuke lives, and like many kids, the girls rarely take their glasses off.
But when their family moves to Daikoku City, the e-space suddenly seems different. Yasako's new classmates are involved in hacking, and the urban legends about dangerous entities hidden in the programming become much more believable when she learns that one of their friends may have died chasing one.
Scariest of all, Yasako has missing memories from the last time she was in Daikoku City. Did something happen to her? And did it happen in our world or one that shouldn't even exist? To find out, she'll have to take a journey through the digital looking glass and learn the shocking secrets of DEN-NOH COIL!

Ratings & Reviews
Truly a hidden Gem
by Relyat08 -
As far as I know, this show was never available in the West until Maiden Japan made this wonderful acquisition. Thanks to that, I have a new favorite. Den-noh Coil is a coming of age/adventure series at its core. If you are interested in fantastic character drama combined with top tier visuals and excellent music, you should check this out. It looks like it might be a kid's show at first glance, but I assure you that it has intense emotional and thematic depth. I HIGHLY recommend picking this series up and giving it a shot.
A TRUE GEM!

Den-Noh Coil is truly a gem. I'm surprised it wasn't picked up till now. If you are into slice-of-life/coming-of-age with a bit of action I highly recommend this series.
A kids' show that's so much more

I am so glad that this finally got a US release. This show is, simply put, fantastic. It's basically what would happen if Studio Ghibli did a take on Ghost in the Shell.
It's nominally a kids' show, but don't let that stop you--it's beautiful, full of great sci-fi, and has a story with a dark twist once it gets going. When it gets going, it's also one of the creepiest things I've ever seen--seriously, there's some of the best ghost-story (in the machine) that I've ever seen.
Watch this show. Just do.
A great, smart series that I'd never heard of till last year

I thank my lucky stars that I chanced on this series. I knew nothing about it prior to watching the first blu ray volume and it surprised the heck out of me by being great (it was one of those "wow, how did I not know about this before??" moments). I was very surprised at how thoughtful (ruminative maybe a better word?) the series is. It fits within that sub-genre of near future science fiction that is concerned with information technology and the consequences of the increasing divide between the "real" and the "virtual." Maybe it's post-cyberpunk, with the punk part gone? I don't know. But it's great. I am so happy I had a chance to watch it, and that I own the series.
