    First Episode is a Knock-Out!
    Ever since watching the CM, I was looking forward to this show.

    I was not disappointed, episode one shows great potential for the future.

    Let's begin with some background: Kanbara, a high school student, is going about his peaceful day when he's suddenly confronted with the sight of a girl ready to jump off the roof. Being the stud he is, he runs up and tries to talk her out of it - ...

    Great animation. Solid Story.
    This anime was fun and addictive. The characters were entertaining and not too over-the-top. Not your normal cliche at all (which is what gave it that fifth star). Even in extraordinary settings, the characters seemed to act their age. Furthermore, they acted like you would expect super-powered warriors to act as well. It struck a really good balance that you don't always find in anime. The only ...

    Beautiful fight scenes, lackluster everything else
    The show is amazing for visuals, not only are the fights very intricate so is the weapon the MC uses at times. The love story between the two MC is nice as well. The only issues with the show stems from the fact that not much is explained (bad guys, story lines, and main characters). You get a generic story line that seems like there is a lot of history and questions behind it, but none of it is ...

    Love this show but...
    Although this show is an absolute visual feast, it is lacking in many departments, especially the story, which is not very cohesive. While the characters are endearing we dont learn much about them. While the battles look pretty, they are very one sided, it's like watching them throw rocks at each other, and less like a back and forth dance.

    I complain alot about this show, but I did fall in ...

    A Very Beautiful Mess
    Beyond the Boundary is a beautiful anime that has some some exciting action moments and characters that give you a warm place in your heart. That doesn’t hide the fact that the show has too many questions that need to be answered and a pacing that threw off the entire show.

    STORY

    The story revolves around two characters Akihito Kanbara, an immortal half-youmu, and Mirai ...

    Mein gott... An Anime That's Moving Forward!? And why does this sound like an episode name?!
    KyoAni and the moe genre has fallen outta favor for me ever since I hit college. In fact, when I think about it, anime in general has been falling outta favor with the appearances of shows like Gravity Falls, My Little Pony, and so on. In a sense, I feel that anime's become kinda like the gaming industry, where innovation doesn't sell as much as taking something old and ...

    Beautiful animation and story
    I'm usually attracted to anime with more mature looking characters, so I (foolishly) thought that I wouldn't like this anime.

    Boy, was I wrong. The story is beautiful, and it keeps adding on each other until the audience is finally able to piece together the story. The characters are love-able and provide a nice combination of comedy and seriousness.

    Could be good if they make a second season.
    Beyond the Boundary is a show about high school, demons, and spirit world warriors. It started off nicely and I enjoyed the idea of the story; however, one can only do so much with 12 episodes. Also, I'm giving this series a 3/5 stars based on the fact that this is only the 1st season.

    Pros to the show- I enjoyed the animation a lot because it's made by kyo-ani and they are well known ...

    Everything I Love and Then Some
    This has been one of the most beautiful and amazing anime I've watched EVER. ...And by now I've seen probably more than my fair share.

    I can hardly describe how incredibly beautiful the animation is (clear and crisp and full of colors and motion and light and awesome blood bending action!) and and how interesting the story was (although it was occasionally confusing. Just go with it.). The ...

    Absolute perfection.
    Words cannot describe how incredible this series is. The animation is spectacular, the story is engaging, the music is alluring, and the overall theme offers a message of acceptance that the viewers would appreciate.

    The characters themselves are diverse, dynamic, charming, and simply lovable. The main characters in particular, Akihito and Mirai, are two of the most compelling and interesting ...
