    The start of noitaminA's downward slide?
    So, I have to be a voice of dissent here, having watched the show when it originally aired and shuddering as I saw CR had picked it up.

    Let's start with the good. It's a visually striking show, with a decent amount of spectacle and a unique flair to the action scenes. The economics stuff gives it a bit of flavor on the surface and also leads to some of the most hilarious shonen fightin' attack ...

    Incredible story, fantastic characters and subplots. And that ENDING! -kisses fingers- MUAH

    Hold onto your wallets! You're gonna be in for a WILD ride!


    And sooooooo many ringtone worthy dialog and phrases if you're into that sort of thing ^_^

  • Great Entertaining Anime with a metaphor
    This is anime takes economics and financial markets displaying them in an anime format. It won't actually teach you anything directly but shows how going into debt to accumulate wealth is like betting on your future, and if you lose your future, you lose everything. A bit slow at first but very thought provoking while providing some good action scenes. About as anime as economics can get.

    A business shounen anime
    I must be one of the few businessmen that watches anime regularly, but here are my two cents on it.

    Kimimaro Yoga is a Economics student that wants to get a stable job so that he can provide for himself and his future family. Having a traumatic family history, he has to work 2 part-time jobs while getting his degree. He misses out on his social life, but he tries to make things work. He is ...

    C control review....
    Not enough episodes which lead to bad pacing and a kick in the nuts ending. The show was pretty unique (shonen buisness) the anime covers economics in an abstract manner, nice animation and halfway decent characters. This show really needed more episodes, maybe 5 more to equal out the pacing problems (maybe more than five).

    One long metaphor for economics.
    Money is power, opportunity, and potential for the future. If you control someone's money you control their future. This show illustrates that in a very literal sense. I can't give specific examples due to not wanting to spoil it, but if you keep an eye out you'll find tons of parallels between the show and investing.

    I'm not an economist, so I can't critique their end argument, though I do see ...

    Economics was never this interesting
    It has good story line, character development, and an interesting view on the links between society, politics, and money (almost philosophical if you think too hard).

    It was recommended by a co-worker so much so that he lent me the DVDs to watch it. After watching it, I also recommend it to anyone who likes an action, fantasy, semi-slice of life.

    The only thing I did not like was the ending. ...

    Is it actually about economics?
    This show is an 'economics' anime in the same way spice and wolf was, that is to say, it is, but only as a world. You watch and love this anime for the characters, and the amazing and unique battle scenes, give it a try, economics or no. The animation is brilliant, and some very fun and unique character designs give the show a very unique feel you'll find no where else. Trust me, I've been ...

    Pleasant surprise for a thursday evening
    Very unique plot and execution. The ending was a little thin but satisfactory none the less. Kept me hooked into the wee hours of the morning and almost jerked a few tears out of my jaded eyes. It is based in a modern day Japan with a "average" post high school teen as the main protagonist who's main goal in life is to merely tow the line. Little does he know that he will influence the fate of the ...

    A+ Quick Watch + Nice Plot
    C-Control, based on money and financial market. (All the episodes title are words starting with the letter "C" and for some reason attacks are finance term - makes sense but confusing at same time)

    Secret Society, Monsters, Affect on Real Life, Twist and Turns in this short series was great, fabulous plot and graphics.

    A teenage protagonist in everyday life with two part time jobs gets ...
