    I guess I have to admit it.
    I tried to hate this anime. I really, really did. And for many episodes, it looked like I was going to.

    When you start watching this anime, you won't know what the hell is going on. Get used to it. This lasts for many, many episodes. Pretty much the whole series, really. You'll get fragments of understanding now and then, but the plotting is so erratic that you'll give up in annoyance ...

    Demons, and Mecha and Gun-bunnies - Oh My!
    Yes, this is one of those anime that mixes a number of genre types to tell a story of action and suspense.

    You like giant-killer-robots? They're here! You like gun-bunnies with chests that bounce wildly as they shoot up the scene? They're here! You like the hot-demon-chick out to save the world? She's here! A harem story? It's here! A high-school romp? It's here! Ghosts and magic? It's here! ...

    A Boy and His Ghost
    Asura Cryin' doesn't hold anything back in its opening, giving you a brief introduction to the characters and "factions" the show will feature almost immediately. Its first episode is action packed, and gives you just enough information to entice you. A fantastic start, but how do they build?

    To start this off I want to give a bit of a basic idea of what the show was ...

    Feels Very Incomplete
    I watched the whole first season on raw endurance. The first episode left me pumped; totally loved it. But when the second episode started, they totally ignored the cliff-hanger that the first episode left off at. Unfortunately, this happens with every episode. It truly feels like I'm watching only the odd-numbered episodes of an otherwise amazing show.

    Harem dating sim meets magical powers
    This series starts of fairly interesting, and degrades quickly into a harem style boob-and-sex-joke series with the pretext of a supernatural war taking place between demons+their contractors, and people connected to Asura Machina. The main forces involved are levels of the school counsel. yes, the school's student body president is a major baddy.
    there are four or five throw away episodes ...

    The science of anime magic.
    This anime caught my eye; a picture of a character who has strange hair? A crying god? Hmm... then I saw the mechs, and read about 'Tomoharu Natsume's ghost friend'. I have to admit, I thought anything like this couldn't possibly be anything but a slap together anime.

    I didn't even bother buckling in for the ride, and boy, did I make a mistake. The moment I stepped in, I started having second ...

    somewhat lacking this first season.
    This show, while pretty good, lacks some strength in consistency and flow.
    Storyline:
    The story isn't terrible, but isn't coherent often enough, and tends to feel inconsistent. The trouble might be due to the combination of mecha/mystery and school life of the plot. Even after watching all the episodes, you feel like you've missed something. It would have likely been better if they took it a ...

    Asura Cryin': Light of Science, Darkness of Uncertainty
    I'm not really sure that Asura Cryin' actually needs more positive reviews, as it seems to be doing pretty well already, but I've got two cents on me, so I might as well drop 'em in the tip jar (so to speak).

    Going in, I was determined to hate this anime. The first few episodes almost proved me right, due in large part to the plot's steadfast refusal to reveal important details until the ...

    Asura Cryin'. Great!
    This anime was not what I was expecting it to be, and I mean that in the best way possible. When I read the outline and saw "Guy with ghost friend that only he can see." I figured it'd be a half decent show that could pre-occupy my time but after the 2nd episode I was completely hooked. This show has it all, suspense, comedy, action, with a little sci-fi and romance to balance it out. The greatest ...
