MIX UP REVIEWS:


Matthew (Age 14) - ★★★★★

"The Birthday Wonderland is a quirky and imaginative story of a young girl who meets a

powerful alchemist and his small assistant, who bring her to their world to fix an impending

drought. The story, characters, and design of this 2019 anime are all superb, with a few

excellent twists thrown into the mix to create an absurd, funny story for everyone to enjoy."
