So far, the series intrigues me in the twist of the librarians. I don't want to write any spoilers in this thread. I don't know if anyone has seen episodes or read manga for the series; please share your thoughts and what characters you like. So far, the director lady is sort of interesting although I don't like her costume. The supporting cast is what will keep me watching rather than the eccentric director.

Yes, I think you're right. At the moment, the supporting cast are far more interesting than the director, who comes across as flighty, uncaring and self-centred. I hope that changes, tbh - I think this series has a great deal of potential. At the moment, though, Volken, Mirepoc and Colio are easily the characters who I'm most interested in.

I do like the overall design of the show, though. There's a nice mix of early 20th century stylings with more esoteric elements - like the Mock Men's habits and the costumes of some of the Armed Librarians. There's definitely enough mystery and intrigue to keep me hooked at the moment.

I'm enjoying it and looking forward to more.

I'm enjoying it alot. So far, it's my favorite NEW (sequels don't count) show this season. Even counting sequels, it's somewhere in my Top 3 for the season along with White Album and Darker Than Black 2. The story and concept are interesting and they mix it with a good amount of action.

The first four episodes remind me alot of Darker Than Black's first two episodes where they really build up one character and...

What's not to like about this show... nothing. From the first episode lots of action, interesting characters and a great storyline. I personally love the director myself.

I think there are going to be 26, and the second 13 will be like a second season.

The character I enjoy most is the twisted protagonist / antagonist Hamyuts Meseta: Each other character that lives up until this point has a fairly linear backing story. That being said, the characters generally fit well within the plot, which brings me to the best part about this anime. The story shows in nearly every episode the makings of a masterpiece. The plot is clever and is woven and told brilliantly. So long as it finishes as well at it has began, this anime will easily become one of my many favourites.

It is very good overall, something different is needed every once in a while. All the intro art is beautiful and perfectly showcases all the elements of the 1st 13 episodes of this series. Watch the intro carefully and you'll see what i mean

It's nice so far. A good mystery with a clever and violent plot. Nice characters.

I hope it gets another season to finish the adaptation. Ep. 20 is like vol. 6 of the light novel adaptation out of 10 volumes total IIRC.

I'm not one to randomly start watching an anime I found while browsing, but I'm glad I took a chance with this one. It's interesting, the premise is unique, the plot is intriguing... I find it all well thought-out.

The last ep I finished was 13, and I didn't like how some things were going, so I went ahead and spoiled myself in whatever way I could find. So I know I'm not going to be pleased with how things may turn out, but damn if I'm not going to keep watching anyway. I guess that's how much I like it.
