    Wonderful adaptation!
    Unlike many watchers, I began with the anime before reading the manga. To me this is a faithful adaptation of the source material. The animation really does a great job of translating those long, lonely nights sitting on the riverbank of a rotting town.

    I will definitely pick up the Blu-ray set when it's released.

    Realistic and artistic without being pretentious, exceptional anime.
    I haven't seen a show with such an accurate and real-feeling portrayal of humanity since The Wire.

    I guess it's too pretentious for many people and if you aren't yet sick of endless Shonen/Harem shows then I'd stay clear, but if you're looking for something unique this is it. And the ending theme for this show is amazing.

    A GREAT story with mediocre o poor exicution
    OK first this is a GREAT story and is worth wading thorough the problems to get through to the meaty gritty insides.
    Watch it for a well written story

    TRY to ignore --
    Poor rotoscopic animation ( rotoscoping is great but this is only a poor effort on a difficult process.)

    Black outs Yes this has many many minutes of nothing or barely nothing and only audio. This is fine for effect ...

    soamazinglybeautiful
    So far, so good. I, personally have not read the manga. I have nothing to compare to, but I prefer it that way. This way I can enjoy this as a piece of art standing on its own, and from what I've seen so far, its beautiful. The art style, though different from what anime viewers are used to adds a realistic and incredibly emotional effect to the story. Its different. But its done so perfectly. On ...

    Social taboo's and great drama
    Great art style and i love the attack on the social hive mind in this show. Give you a real look at what people really think and what they want to deny in there own minds because everyone is so judgmental in our society. Must watch if you're into physiology or what goes threw peoples minds.

    Not for Everyone But Exceptional None the Less
    Yes yes, i know the art style is mediocre in some peoples mind, and some question the idea that it is even anime, and i know it is a dramatic change from the manga, i happen to think this art style fits the plot much better than the original. After watching the first few episodes of this anime i took a look at the manga and was confused due to the very moe esk style it presented. I did not read ...

    Great Potential, but...
    When I started to watch the first two episodes, I thought it was lame and slow, but I decided to push forward. I decided to read further in its manga counterpart and I am hooked.
    Note: This is something you may not want to show in an anime club due to content and not everyone may enjoy it.

    Unique, but not for everyone.
    This anime is not for everyone, because it is not your usual anime. the Story line makes a big deal out of a small event, and in a beautiful way. Instead of the anime following a protagonist that finds acceptance of everyone and ends up with the best possible situation, this anime follows a social inept who goes from being shy into a complete maniac, and taking you in a journey with him. The ...

    A modern psychological roller coaster.
    Getting past the art is completely worth it. I appreciate the animation style, but if you get used to it, you get to enjoy one of the best psychological thrillers of anime produced in a long time. It's gripping, mocks japanese culture and society, all while creating an original atmosphere to anyone who's ever experienced the angst and pressure of the common teenager. The character development is a ...
