    Interesting Premise, Poor Execution
    From the previews, this seemed like the type of show I would love - elemental swords, magic, and some great character designs. The actual show was definitely a disappointment. The pacing felt off; the ending didn't feel like it resolved anything, and the main character had the Naruto-like ability to end fights not by fighting but by talking and convincing his opponent to join him. While I don't ...

    Good anime... if you haven't read the manga.
    I know it's not Yuu Watase's fault for how this anime turned out, so it really sucks it got crammed into 12 episodes and didn't resolve everything. I haven't read the manga yet so I'm sure all of these issues will get resolved but it would've been nice to have it done in the show as well. Overall though I liked it!

    I still don't get the hate?!?
    After watching this I still don't understand why Arata was being picked on. I didn't get it at all. Looks like some big race happened and he won and it cause a downward spiral for his friend. That's like if I passed gas and aimed it at the person next to me then we would become enemies for life. There is no expiation as to why Arata is hated and that made me want to hate everyone else for no ...

    Fish out of water anime
    Yes the main character is very whiny in the beginning. But I promise you he is getting braver. After 5 episodes this show is starting to show some life. My opinion is the show's main theme is trust. I am a fan of normal people going to distant worlds ala El Hazard. PERHAPS at the end the show will be just as good. I intend to watch to see if it does.

  • Quite possibly the worst bad guy ever.
    So the story starts off pretty decently, although somewhat predictable. This however is not at all the reason this anime falls into the category "abysmal mess".

    Lets get one thing clear, the motive for a bad guy, in anything, must at least be an understandable one. Even stooping as low as "You have it, I want it". Alas, no, this animes reason is not so thought out. If you disagree..... ...

  • Already 2015 and I'm waiting for more.
    It's already 2015. No second season. I finished it without realizing this and it has disappointed me. I wish for another season, but it seems there will never be one. Arata and Kadowaki's past wasn't really explained to me. Is Kadowaki pissed off because his run wasn't fast enough that he now wants to kill Arata? Sounds like a really stupid reason. I need more explanation then what was given. MORE ...

  • Don't waste your time.
    Main villain is just a whiny high-schooler who hates the main character because he thinks the main character purposely slowed down in a foot race they were having at school. TERRIBLE motive that can not, in any possible way, justify the amount of hate and contempt he holds. And that alone just kills the show for me. All of the characters have half baked personalities. The show doesn't have any ...

  • Liked more than I thought I would...
    I watched all my current top choices, and while I didn't plan on watching this, I found myself enjoying this more than I thought I would.
    Though, in my opinion it was nothing too special (I mean there is a ton of anime out there), I continued to go to the next episode until completed in a very short amount of time (a day or two).
    At any rate, if you choose to watch it...enjoy.

  • So much potential, weak execution
    There was so much potential for a fun anime in this but the villain was so crappy. His entire reason for being "evil" and fighting the protagonist is so childish and whiny it becomes cringe worthy each time he says anything. If you can stomach a weak villain and poor scripting of the overall good and evil fight there are still some elements to this. Would not recommend watching unless you are just ...
