Sixteen-year-old Shinkurō Kurenai, a specialist in settling squabbles between people, is one day approached by the daughter of a powerful plutocratic family asking him to be her bodyguard



Kure-nai wasn't one of the animes that i have high expectations this spring,but i unexpectedly like it.

Studio Brain's Base is becoming one of my favourite studio now.I totally love their previous work such as Baccano! and Kamichu,and with this,my respect for the studio grows even higher.

The animation here is beautiful.I absolutely like the choice of colour palette,and the character design is good.Not generic,(unlike Allison and Lilia).

The story is pretty unusual and not to mention,pretty dark actually.We have Murasaki,a seven year old girl who have a pretty rough childhood,with her mother dead and a cruel father.She escaped with the help of Benika and is currently under the protection of Shinkuro.

What makes this story so enjoyable is the fact that not only the leading characters are interesting to watch,but also the supporting characters.They are each enigmatic and unique,and not just a "side dish" like some other supporting characters in other series.We see the daily lives of Shinkuro and Murasaki,and their interaction with one another as they learn to understand one another better and learning one of two thing in the process of that.

Murasaki is love.I absolutely like her.In episode 2,she discovers something new called "Thank you",something that most of us took lightly.She refused to say thank you at first but she quickly learned her lesson well and practiced it since.You don't see 7 year olds do that often.

And Shinkuro is also an interesting character.I have a feeling that there are more to him than meets the eye,and in the flashback in episode 2,he had it hard to.I suppose he lost his family in an earthquake or something.

And Benika,i just love her.She reminded me a lot of Yuuko from xxxHolic.A mysterious and enigmatic character.

Overall,i am definitely looking forward to the next episode

i totally agree on murasaki~~ she is just sooo cute~~~ "why must i thank my servants???!!!!" ..bout shinkuro, i think theres something on his right hand..maybe its not normal? cause its seems too strong.

their character specifications and art are very detailed, in a sense that the hair is moving pretty well~ unlike some u see, its just a lump of colour~
