  • Story, Romance, twists
    Maybe I'm a pushover for these types of animes, but I love a girl who seems confused and helpless because she doesn't yet understand herself and so hasn't come into her full power yet. Also a romance wrapped into an intriguing story around supernatural elements with twists.

  • Decently Entertaining
    Beautiful animation coupled with some clever and lovable characters. Fresh ideas and a few fun plot twists keep this story interesting but I wouldn't call this anime a game-changer or ground-breaking. It's a quality anime for those with higher standards but the ending will leave you a bit confused and perhaps displeased. You will, however, gain a new respect for eyeglass-wearing characters.

    Technically would give this a 4.5
    After watching this, my emotions right now are everywhere; I'm a mess. Honestly I can't even find enough words to describe how I'm feeling right now after watching this. But what I do know at the moment, is that if you are debating between if you should watch this or not, then ask yourself the following questions:

    Have you watched Angel Beats before and liked it?
    Do you not mind, not getting ...

  • One of my all time favorites
    First of all, I love that the heroine has fluffy brown hair, big red glasses, a saggy cardigan, and a BIG HONKIN' BLOOD-RED SWORD. Humor, action, romance -- it's got everything I love in an anime. The characters are sympathetic and you really root for them. I hope Crunchyroll gets the two movies that came out, too, because I'm anxious to see what happens to Akihito and Mirai.

  • A different kind of Monogatari
    If I had to sum up Beyond the Boundary, it would be "A poor man's Monogatari series". Both have similar starts, they both have characters with distinct quirks, mannerisms and catch phrases. They also both frequently have recurring skits, philosophical discussions on trivial matters and subtle commentaries on society. Unfortunately though, Beyond the Boundary doesn't quite pull everything ...

  • Weird mashup between action fantasy and Moe
    There were good bits in this show, but it seemed like there were two creators arguing over what direction to go in, and they didn't achieve a good balance with the "Moe" and "Serious Fantasy" elements. Meanwhile, this meant that there wasn't enough time in the series to properly focus on either, so I was left feeling like everything was rushed or at times just random. Such a shame!

  • Like the last three chapters of a good, and complicated book
    This show is super super pretty. If all action scenes were half this good I would be a happy man.

    But alas, 12 episodes just isn't enough to make this show come together in a story kind of way. It feels like this is the last three for four chapters of a book with a very involved and complicated storyline, or maybe like the last 15 minutes of an action-romantic-comedy.

    This world the ...

  • Funny, cute, and suspensful
    This anime is really good.
    I like the development between Mirai and Akihito. The plot about the Youmu is pretty interesting too.

    However, some major questions remain unanswered:
    Why is Akihito a half Youmu? We meet his mother who seems like an airhead at first, but she really is hiding a lot of secrets.

    What is the main antagonist's (I think his name was Miroku?) complete intentions? ...

  • Not a magical girl romance
    Brevity is the measure of wit. This anime does so much in 13 episodes, so much new, so much good character and relationship developement and so much fun and beauty. I mean, high quality animation and sound. Good music and a good twist at the end. Shamalan has nothing on these people (and his recent stuff has sucked more and more) this is a Superb anime
