For those that are making comments about the shallowness of the plot clearly have not seen this series. It is a fantastic story with one of the best endings to an anime ever. Lots of interesting themes about war, growing up, and gender.
As a kid do you remember adults saying "Don't judge a book by its cover." Well anime is the exception you can judge the whole show by its cover. So look at the cover above and you'll understand 90% of the plot.
By the way, they have to put the original MSRP as the "price", but this is basically $2 off the RightStuf bargain bundle, $5 off the Endless Melody release. If you like poignant fantasy, don't miss it.
Meygaera, its a SF/Fantasy series that has a strong yuri element ~ but this is a world where all youth are female until they go to a magic spring and pick their adult gender, so the yuri is kind of a natural part of the fantasy world.
Meygaera, this is not porn. It's a poignant, well-written love story that happens to be between females. Clearly that isn't something that holds meaning for you, but I'll thank you not to characterize all yuri as your kind of soulless smut.
I've tried convincing myself that this might be worth it. But I concluded that if I really wanted to see Yuri, I could just Google lesbian porn and get more than what I expected.
If the plot really supersedes the yuri elements, thenGET IT
Yay, actually glad to see this deal back! ^.^ Was quite interested in it the first time that they offered it, but didn't have the extra money to get it. Just got a huge paycheck, so grabbed it this time around.
Meh.. Passed last time, pass this time. LOVE yuri but this doesnt appeal. Just bought over 360 anime dvds to sell & keep, lots of oop. So im broke for a while. Amazing stuff tho, fate stay nights le & so much more! Petesanimeplus on ebay.
I'm not drawn to, but I'm not offended by yuri either. All I care about is if the show has a solid plot and characters I can connect with. This has both. It's a moving and unique war story. The music is great too.
Glad they're running this deal again for those who may have missed it before. One of the greatest anime ever made. A tragic, thoughtful war story, wonderful yuri romance, atmospheric, melancholy setting, perfect ending. Do not miss Simoun.
