    For being new to animes, I can recommend this!
    The first anime a friend of mine forced me to watch that i do not regret was sword art online, after that i started some searching on this site and i decided to pick this one, looked kinda cool and exciting and god damn it was. I loved it!
    Even though there are some kinda brotherly love that u normally don't see irl.
    And i gotta push on the music and the songs, oh god, beautiful!
    Aaaaaaah ...

  • Great show, too bad it's over.
    I really liked the show. It's interesting to find out this is remake of a Japanese longest Classical Literature pieces. Also that this is one out of many re-makes. Maybe I will check out the others. I also liked the animation a lot, it was really beautifully done. The ending was a bit lame, but overall I enjoyed it.

    I need more and i need it now!!!
    the art, the story, the characters!!! this is another great series that when it ends you start obsessing over the internet trying to find hints of another season, i fell in love and i'm sure anyone that gives it the time of day will soon realize that the day it self has passed in no time and your eight episodes in.

    Season 1 was boring, but Season 2 made up for it
    Season 1 was boring and not exciting at all, however Season 2 made up for it nicely.

    There's probably going to be season 3 from the look of things at the end of Season 2.

    This anime (specifically season 2) is great in the sense that it incorporates many myths and legends into a modern twist kind of story. It focused on many mythological beings and Japanese folktales; stories like a child ...

    Passed my expectations.
    I have had my doubts as well when I came about this anime. Slightly reluctant, even after reading reviews, I began to test out the anime and over time, I surprisingly found myself absorbed and completely into this series. Humor, action, tragedy, and even a spoonful of shonen-ai kept me completely lost in the anime, but not in a bad way. Though the plot at first might be confusing for some, ...

  • Loving the Characters
    There isn't much fighting, as it may seem when you hear about warriors. However, the character development is great and you really feel their emotion. If you enjoy drama this is a great anime. I am addicted to it!

  • Awesome Anime and art!
    I really love this anime. Its not romantic in any way, so if you are looking for a romance anime, then this is not the one you are looking for. Well anyway, I just really love it. Its funny sometimes and sometimes epic in some parts. I like the openings too. The art is pretty. It has awesome art too. There are demons and such, but then they don't really look like that much of a monster, so that's ...

    Amazing Story and Great Characters!
    I was skeptic coming into this series but was surprisingly pleased and was surprised at how little people know of this or watch this anime. The story can be a little slow for some people but I find that it keeps the audience well engaged in how the plot will uncover in the end. Definitely a story that keeps you thinking of the possibilities and creates a unique environment compared to many other ...

  • Very very good story!
    I love this! The art is great and the story interesting. They keep throwing in clues to what is actually going on. Shino is very well developed character (even if he puts on a childish image, literally) and the story focuses on his relationships with the other characters. They are all lying to each other for the others' perceived benefit. Probably more of a story for girls though.
